Racist Al Gore Tells World Economic Forum They Have To Find Ways To Keep Africa’s Population Down
Al Gore pops his head up at Davos…say, how’d he get there? A fossil fueled flight?…to make a racist pronouncement (via Climate Depot).
(CNBC) Stopping overpopulation is one way the dangers of climate change can be mitigated, according to two of the most prominent believers in global warming.
Former Vice President Al Gore and Microsoft founder Bill Gates (how did Gates get to Davos? Anyone think he flew commercial?) said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that contraception is a key in controlling the proliferation of unusual weather they say is endangering the world.
“Depressing the rate of child mortality, educating girls, empowering women and making fertility management ubiquitously available, so women can chose how many children and the spacing of children… is crucial to the future shape of human civilization,” said Gore, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 for his work on global warming.
Gore said Africa’s population is expected to surpass India’s and China’s by the mid-21st century and will be more than both combined by the end of the century.
The video of him speaking is here, starts at the 15 minute mark. Had anyone on the political Right said this, much less a former US Vice President, they would immediately be labeled a racist for wanting to reduce the population of Africa, which is largely populated by Black people and Arabs.
(The Reference Frame) Al Gore started to talk around 14:55 in the video above and advocated “fertility management” in Africa, something that sounds scary. You could think that he has explicitly talked about forced sterilization but he actually hasn’t — he has left the issue of the methods ambiguous. At any rate, it is very clear that he is obsessed with the idea of the reduction of the number of Africans and in this sense, he is no different than the German Nazis who wanted to gradually phase out Slavs on their stolen territories.

It is impossible not to think that there’s some racism and stunning hypocrisy if a jerk who has produced four children is “working” on the reduction of the number of newborn babies in a completely different nation.
Warmists have long advocated for population reduction for Other People, being extensively linked to the rest of the Progressive agenda, which includes abortion on demand and forced sterilization along racist lines, as the early founders of this movement were eugenicists and racists, particularly against Blacks. Yet, these same Warmists mostly refuse to take themselves out of the gene pool. Many have several children.
“These extreme weather events which are now 100 times more common than 30 years ago are really waking people’s awareness all over the world, and I think that is a game-changer,” Gore said.
Except they aren’t. Unless you count below average temperatures as extreme. And the Gore Effect is in play in Davos, with the daily high temperatures being below average (around 32F-42F for this part of January, depending on the source) for the past few days and expected to be below 27F as a high for the next ten days, with many days into the teens. And snowing every day, which isn’t that unusual.
Anyhow, no one should be surprised that Gore has gone racist.
