Skip to comments.AlGore/Arianna Huffington SUV-Gate HYPOCRISY expose' expands to major Talk Radio (FR exclusive)
Posted on 09/17/2005 8:39:43 AM PDT by The Spirit Of Allegiance
Green pacifict geeks should do as hypocrite high-rollers AlGore and Arianna say, not as they do. Both were in San Franciso last weekend at a Green vehicle event pitching hybrid cars (gas/electric combination) yet both were chauffered in BIG GAS-GUZZLING, GLOBAL-WARMING SUVs. They really stepped in this one and DFU has documented it well--and got the word out to MANY talk shows in addition to Mr. KABC including Tony Snow, Mark Levin, Michael Graham, Melanie Morgan, Roger Hedgecock and Al Rantel. And, a major syndicated Conservative columnist has responded to DFU's email and is trying to get some answers from the Sierra Club.
In an effort to really turn up the 'global warming' heat on Arianna, DFU also posted the information directly to her blog The Huffington Post, which as of this posting is still there, at http://www.ariannaonline.com/forums/showthread.php?p=381471#post381471
Roy Sekoff, editor of The Huffington Post, in an email to Mr. KABC, has admitted the photo in the SUV is indeed Arianna--but blamed the incident on the the SIERRA CLUB, which sent the vehicle for her. Hmmmm. Is the Sierra Club an evil conspirator with the VRWC in global warming? Arianna has refused repeated requests to come on Mr. KABC and tell her side of the story. A reasonable explanation would be that they forced her into the SUV at gunpoint but this probably was not the case and no kidnapping charges have been filed, to DFU's knowledge.
DFU was on Mr. KABC about 20 minutes Friday night, and the info below is on Mr. KABC's home page--so we can be certain that many thousands of people know about this and can add to the discomfort of the hypocrites.
Photo and excerpts from MR. KABC's home page (articles have links to her sourced quotes):
Arianna Supports Terrorism? (09/16/05)

"giving up our SUVs... we can all make simple adjustments to wean our country from the foreign oil teat, even if our leaders are too dazed by the energy and auto industry lobbies to guide us."
- Arianna's November 14th, 2001 column "Support Our Troops. Dump That SUV." Read The Article
"High-living celebs tie SUV owners to terror" Read The Article
"Three of the four co-founders of The Detroit Project drive hybrid vehicles, and the fourth has ordered a hybrid vehicle and is waiting for it to be delivered."

End of excerpts from Mr. KABC's home page
Just amazing -- the loons of the left, and here, two of the finest!!
Ping and please bump!
What gets me is the arrogance of these people. Did they honestly think that this would go unnoticed? "Hey, we're going to the Green Vehicle Event. Send over a couple of SUV's, OK?"
"Scratch the SUV's. Send us a stretch Hummer instead!"
Arrogance, elitism, and hypocrisy are the cornerstones of liberalism.
Can someone please post the picture(s) for us?
The Photos --
At the bottom of the initial post, right click and then click on Show Photo, it should be viewable.
The previous threads (search links also above) have the photos.
Is there a law in this country against driving an SUV to The Sierra Club Convention?
I think it was said that Arianna and Algore's Yugos were in the shop for maintenance at the time.
Secret Agent 007 DFU hit 'em where it hurt! Outstanding!
Ya Gotta Luv DFU
Arianna was overheard saying, "But that was an SUV that was already going somewhere anyway."
Ex-VP Algore - Earth In the Balance.
DFU - catches them in their expensive SUVs - PRICELESS!
I saw Hillary!'s entourage of 15 identical SUV's drive into the NYS Fair. Suburbans. They seek to firm up their control over the spending of your money by driving bullet-proof limos while the little people dart about them in civics and golfs.
If you're going to lecture everyday Joes about their vehicles and then drive around in one you're telling them they shouldn't drive that's called hypocrisy. Most people would be ashamed of being caught as a hypocrit but these are leftist snobs and they know what's good for us.
