How environmentally correct were these "antiwar" protestors anyway?
Images from Little Green Footballs.
The question of the day is:
Did they buy carbon offsets for their American flag burning exercise?
And, what is the carbon offset value for burning an American soldier effigy anyway measured in GHTUs (Gore Hypocrisy Thermal Units)?

Are you daring to question their patriotism?
What is the carbon offset value of a bunch of Vet's who have had enough of this commie crap.
These nimrods put the BDU shirt on the effigy backwards. The future of our country can't even dress up a doll fer Christ's sake.
These protesters are anarchists. What do they have to do with environmentalism? Why is Al Gore catching flak for the actions of these individuals? Once you compare these anarchist protesters to Al Gore, all anti-war protesters, environmentalists, you're face to face with flawed logic.
Jms---It's a simple question, given Portland's well-deserved fame as the Uber-green city. Did they get their carbon offsets for the flag burning?
I didn't mention Gore at all, except in the connection to the equivalent of the British Thermal Unit (BTU) for measuring such offset matters: the Gore Hypocrisy Thermal Unit (GHTU) (otherwise known as the quantity of energy it takes to deep fry one Mars Bar to a crispy yet choclatey perfection all the while sanctimoniously blaming environmental degradation on Red State AmeriKKKa.)
I think it's really pathetic that you bash Gore because of the supposed hypocrisy over his energy bills. What bullshit! He buys 100% renewable energy and he supports neo-liberal solutions to global warming. He has never said that we all need to live in Ewok tree huts, just that we need to get a more sustainable grid in the United States. So please, take the stick out of your ass.
Gore and Tipper need to downsize, from their mansion, stocks from a mining company, travels all over the world...walk the walk, right now all I see is the start of a new found cult called "Gorologist".
dedicate the following rework of “The Lord’s Prayer” to Al Gore and the rest of his liberal carbon crusaders.
The Gore’s Prayer
Al Father, who art in transit,
Phony be thy game.
Thy Lear-Jet hums.
Those lies you’ve spun,
About Earth, and your huge mansion.
Give us a break, your daily dread.
And forgive us with bus passes,
As we curse those flying first-class above us.
And lead us not into stagflation,
But humor us more, Sir Carbon-Knievel.
One of the enduring disappointments universally demonstrated by liberals across the board is the blithe abandonment of their ideals when they don't fit the current groupthink, hence feminists excusing Clinton's behavior, environmentalists excusing Gore's, feminists demonizing Ayan Hirsi Ali, gays supporting the Palestinian cause, etc, etc. It goes on and on, and it is hypocritical as hell.
"He has never said that we all need to live in Ewok tree huts, just that we need to get a more sustainable grid in the United States. "
Uh... there's a Gore line from his movie: "Are you ready to change your life?" That's what he's asking everyone else to do. Sorry, bub. Askee goes first.
Nothing seems to irritate Lefties more than clobbering their posturing with facts. In fact, they even have a name for it: 'Swiftboating: to totally destroy Lefty posturing bullshit by shining the light of Truth on it.'
They only like telling 'Truth to Power' when they're doing the telling. What a bunch of wussies.
Actually Ewoks are the worst carbon abusers. Chopping down trees for fuel affects the whole universe. Little furry savages.
Is burning the flag illegal? Snide remarks about Gore a simple showing of small mindedness. In fart put together a list of monthly use of energy costs for the entire congress and see if it is anywhere near "average" use so often cited in a Gore putdown. In fact is raising consciousness via his film about a global problem is the big Gore con tribution and your sniping is the little child in the back of the classroom giggling.
Recall, if you know history, how the anti-Viet Na m movement began and how it finally got Am erica out of a doomed adventure. Again, it was young kids marching, burning flags, protesting etc...while the older folks (like you and me) simply made caustic remarks about how stupid they were. And while making our observaions, 50 thousand Americans lost their lives.
Why not support your position and leave the keyboard for a time and offer a counter march in support of a long-time surge, with more money and more troops? Support your flag instead of makin g snide observbations. JUST DO IT!
A snide keyboard entered exhortation to abandon snide keyboard observations.
You can't make this stuff up.
Is burning the flag illegal?
Umm, no, it isn't. Did I say it was or should be? No.
I'd be a smidgen more impressed with the fierce courage of the anarchist lefties if they burned a Koran as well, but hey, I guess one can only expect so much fierce courage for one day, eh?
Snide remarks about Gore a simple showing of small mindedness.
Not as much as poor grammar, but hey, who is counting among friends.
In fact is raising consciousness via his film about a global problem is the big Gore con tribution and your sniping is the little child in the back of the classroom giggling.
Ah, I see---we have to change, but he doesn't? The little children do in fact giggle from the back of the classroom when the teacher is exposed as a complete nekkid fraud. So since Al has done his part, is he free to live a life of eating Baby Seal Burgers?

Leading to the deaths of uncounted millions in Cambodia and Vietnam itself. But that's a different issue.
The question remains, Joe, did they purchase a carbon offset for the flag burning? And if no, what does that say about their concern for the environment and the air we all have to breathe? What about the children?
