Well, folks, today’s breaking story is that opposition to wind power may be forming a national group–GASP! Any time an opponent of the current government’s pork barrel projects dares to form a national group, it’s a horrendous thing. People getting together to fight something they believe is wrong is a horrible idea. It’s UNAMERICAN! Only clean energy people like the AWEA can spend millions on lobbying and pushing for subsidies and be completely above the influence of money. Surely by now Americans would understand that subversive means “does not agree with the current government” and not go there. The First Amendment only applies to liberals and environmentalists. And only Liberals and Environmentalists can form groups and lobby congress. Everyone else is just a whack job out to destroy the Holy Left.
Seriously, there is an up side to this. When the only thing a group can do is attack the people who oppose them, it’s absolute evidence that the group has no solid basis for its beliefs or actions. Attacking anti-wind groups as “subversive” is a neon sign saying “WIND IS REALLY BAD AND COSTS TOO MUCH BUT YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW THIS. YOU ARE BAD PEOPLE. GO AWAY.” Attacking a group rather than presenting evidence that the group is wrong is an admission you have no defensible position.
That is the problem with the grassroots people. They have a position…and evidence….and people are listening. Wind is threatened, just as the emporer with the new clothes. No one likes being hung out naked for all to see the flaws in their position. So Wind attacks those who point out the lack of clothes. It’s actually good thing.
Thank you Wind for showing us you have no position, no evidence and no clothes…….
