It’s a story that really hasn’t gotten a lot of coverage outside of Fox News and perhaps some PETA press releases, but the Obama administration recently granted a waiver to a California wind farm that allows them to murder bald eagles for up to 30 years and face no penalty. Bald eagles are a rare species that have been historically protected under the law, and killing them would normally result in hefty six-figure fines as well as a year and a half in jail per eagle killed.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that the eagles are “smacked out of the air by the blades of high-speed wind turbines and are killed or horribly injured.” In other words, brutal bird death is something Barack Obama is perfectly fine with, as long as it’s in the name of Green Energy. It was only a few weeks ago that reports surfaced about the activities of Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, a $1.6 billion dollar taxpayer-funded project that has allowed the birds to be incinerated with heat lasers by way of 350,000 gigantic mirrors. The birds may be burned up in flight, or their wings may be singed just enough to cause them to fall to the ground and die on impact, or be eaten by predators.
It’s a horrifying prospect to imagine, but while Democrats who claim to love the environment are manufacturing fabricated Republican Wars on Women, their president has been engaging in an actual War on Birds. Wind farms have been mutilating over 300,000 of the precious creatures every year, and not only has Obama been letting them get away with it…he’s actually encouraging it. Anything for so-called Clean Energy, right? Ironically, for something labeled “clean,” it has certainly resulted in a lot of dirty bird blood on this president’s hands.
Obama pardons a turkey every year for Thanksgiving, while he simultaneously allows for the murder of hundreds upon thousands of other birds, including the beautiful bird that symbolizes America. Somehow, it’s not shocking at all.
Happy Independence Day.
