Al Gore Wins the Meaningless Nobel Peace Prize

Al Gore has won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. The liberal mainstream media (redundant?) will of course play it up like it's some kind of honor (which all the other Nobel prizes really are) and won't tell you that the Nobel Peace Prize is really a complete joke.


Just a little history of the worthless, politically motivated, anti-American, nothing to do with "peace" prize:

2005: Mohamed ElBaradei and the International Atomic Energy Agency won the Nobel Peace Prize for their work fighting nuclear proliferation. Under their watch only India, Pakistan, and North Korea tested atomic bombs, while Iran's nuclear weapons program continued unimpeded and Libya revealed it had a nuclear weapons program for years. In case my sarcasm is not clear, without Mr. ElBaradei or the IAEA the result would have been exactly the same or some other person or body would have stepped in and actually done something.

2004: Wangari Maathai won the Nobel Peace Prize for which her qualifications can best be summed up in her own words: (1) "Some say that AIDS came from the monkeys, and I doubt that because we have been living with monkeys (since) time immemorial, others say it was a curse from God, but I say it cannot be that." (2) "In fact it (the HIV virus) is created by a scientist for biological warfare." (3) "It is a tool to control (black people) designed by some evil-minded scientists."

2003: With it becoming increasingly obvious in 2003 that Iran was the source of much of the violence throughout the Middle East, the Nobel Peace Prize was award to Shirin Ebadi who is nothing more than a tool for Ayatollah government and who advocated non-existent reforms meant to pacify Iranians against complete rebellion. Ms. Ebadi never failed to tow the party line blaming Israel, America and the West for her nation's ills and arguing that Islam "needs to be better understood and to be interpreted more intelligently." Which actually may be true, in that I'm too stupid to understand hacking people's heads off and purposely targeting civilians.

2002: Jimmy Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize the significance of which was summed up by Gunnar Berge, the Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, who expressly admitted that the award was meant as a slap in the face of President George W. Bush for initiating war in Iraq. When asked if the selection of the former president was a criticism of President Bush, Mr. Berge, replied: "With the position Carter has taken on this, it can and must also be seen as criticism of the line the current U.S. administration has taken on Iraq." President Carter's attacks on Israel and sanctification of fraudulent "elections" of dictator's and murderous thugs no doubt also impressed the Nobel committee.

2001: Kofi Annan and the United Nations won the Nobel Peace Prize for...ummm...can anyone name anything positive the United Nations has ever accomplished? After looking it up, the award was "for their work for a better organized and more peaceful world." Let me rephrase that more accurately, "for their work for better organized attacks against the United States and more peaceful conditions under which third-world dictatorial thugs can flourish."

1994: Yassir Arafat shared the Nobel Peace Prize for his lifetime of achievement as the terrorist leader of the PLO which sends suicide bombers into civilian areas for the express purpose of murdering and maiming as many innocent women and children as possible. Arafat, of course, went on to plunder billions from his people and die of AIDS.

1990: Mikhail Gorbachev won the Nobel Peace Prize for having the Soviet Union crumble around him in defeat. But for the Nobel Committee's hatred of the U.S. and its status as the sole remaining super power, the award would obviously have gone to the one man who stood up to the Soviet Union and challenged Gorbachev to "tear down this wall." Giving the Peace Prize to Gorbachev is like recognizing the driver of Rosa Parks' bus as a civil rights leader.

1988: Unbelievably, or perhaps consistently, the United Nations Peacekeepers won the award for...again I forget...was it for the rape of children and refugees, for their protection of dictators and terrorists, for corruption on the largest scale ever seen by mankind or for simply having never done anything of use that wasn't actually accomplished by the United States?

Finally, you ask, what does alleged global warming have to do with peace? Well, the Nobel committee explained (emphasis mine):

Extensive climate changes may alter and threaten the living conditions of much of mankind. They may induce large-scale migration and lead to greater competition for the earth's resources. Such changes will place particularly heavy burdens on the world's most vulnerable countries. There may be increased danger of violent conflicts and wars, within and between states.

I see this method of supposed logic sometimes in reading court opinions. It is a fine example of first reaching the conclusion and then attempting to justify it. In other words, there is no, or there is only a really strained, justification for awarding a peace prize to a peddler of questionable environmental science.

Just to be clear, all of the other Nobel Prizes are an incredible honor to receive. It is only the Nobel Peace Prize which is a complete joke. Besides being non-political, all the other Nobel Prizes are for scientific achievement...another reason Al Gore couldn't receive one of them.

  1. The prize for Literature has had its dubious moments as well.

  2. So now I have to apologize (for comments on Mindy's blog) if for no other reason than to watch the sucking up!

    why wasn't ghandi awarded the nobel peace prize. He is the most deserving of it, as he freed india from british rule, without the means of using violence.

    "none" asks a great question as to why Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi) was never awarded the Nobel Peace prize given that he's likely the most appropriate candidate in the 20th century.

    The Nobel Committee itself offers their own excuses: Mahatma Gandhi, the Missing Laureate. Keep in mind, however, this is the Nobel Committee saying why it made the biggest error in the history of its existence so take it with a grain of salt. I think it might could be boiled down to, we were a bunch of bigots overly concerned with our own European superiority.

    Myself, I believe the explanation lies in the fact that, who receives the Nobel Peace Prize proves the award is a joke and who doesn't receive the Nobel Peace Prize proves its a joke...*cough* Ronald Reagan *cough*
