The same people who accuse SUV owners of aiding terrorists from their million-dollar homes are trying to kill a plan to put wind turbines near Martha’s Vinyard. Such leftist celebrities such as Walter Cronkite and Robert Kennedy are decrying the plan to place turbines offshore of the rich vacation spot.
This is a perfect example of limousine-liberal hypocrisy in action. Of course it’s fine to impose burdens on the rest of the country in the name of the environment, but heaven help anyone who messes with the views from their summer stomping grounds. It’s fine for them to fly their private jets, drive their expensive SUVs, and live far from the rest of the hoi polloi but the people in flyover country can go to hell in their eyes.
Here’s hoping the plan not only goes through, but I’d love to see the turbines arranged in a giant middle finger pointed directly at Martha’s Vineyard. If they’re so adament about a clean environment, they had damn well better by willing to bear such a miniscule share of it.
