Former Vice President Al Gore threw his support behind the Occupy Wall Street protests Wednesday night, arguing that the country’s elected officials have failed the public on everything “from the economy to the climate crisis.”
Gore, a vocal advocate of policies to address climate change, called the protests — which have spread around the country — a “true grassroots movement.”
“From the economy to the climate crisis, our leaders have pursued solutions that are not solving our problems; instead they propose policies that accomplish little,” Gore wrote on his blog Wednesday night.
“With democracy in crisis, a true grassroots movement pointing out the flaws in our system is the first step in the right direction. Count me among those supporting and cheering on the Occupy Wall Street movement.”
I think the one good thing about these Occupy protests is that we’re finding out pretty quickly who the radicals really are.
The bigger question I have however is would the Occupy moonbats allow Al Gore to speak or not at one of their events.
