Mitt Romney Backer Says Al Gore Plotting Mass Murder, Worse Than Hitler

Days prior to endorsing Republican Mitt Romney for President -- millionaire author Ann Coulter accused environmentalists, including former Vice President Al Gore, of plotting mass murder on a scale worse than Hitler or Stalin.

Once an outspoken supporter of environmental policy, Romney has recently flipped his stance on the environment in an effort to model his campaign after the current policies of President George W. Bush.

Claiming that Gore in particular and liberals in general use environmentalism to cloak their hidden plot to murder all but 1 million of the earth's population, Coulter wrote the following in her recent syndicated column (Feb. 28, 2007):

Liberals have always had a thing about eliminating humans. Stalin wanted to eliminate the kulaks and Ukranians, vegetarian atheist Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate the Jews, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger wanted to eliminate poor blacks, DDT opponent Rachel Carson wanted to eliminate Africans (introduction to her book "Silent Spring" written by … Al Gore!), and population-control guru Paul Ehrlich wants to eliminate all humans.

Thus, the controversial Republican pundit included Gore and other environmentalists amongst the perpetrators of the 20th Century's worst genocides.

Coulter's column went on to charge Gore and others with the grotesque fantasy of wanting to force "229 million" people to die of starvation, particularly -- in Coulter's words -- the "fuel-guzzling, tacky, beer-drinking, NASCAR-watching middle class."

Coulter penned her conspiracy theory about Gore several days prior to endorsing Romney at the 2007 CPAC conference, and several days after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded the Oscar for Best Documentary to Davis Guggenheim's film An Inconvenient Truth, which featured the former Vice President's work on environmental initiatives.

Despite Coulter's accusations, Republican voters in recent election cycles have voiced increasing support for environmental initiatives.

The Mitt Romney campaign has yet to repudiate Coulter's charges.
