Lauren Boebert Says Even Dumber Things About Windmills Than Trump

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), a first-term Congresswoman, might think that she’s onto something. On Twitter this Tuesday, she complained about windmills — which ex-President Donald Trump himself repeatedly targeted for some reason — and insisted that wind power isn’t so “green” after all. As she explained it, un-freezing wind turbines requires “sending up a helicopter that shoots out chemicals onto the blades,” and these helicopters, she noted, require fuel. “Keep that in mind when thinking how “green” windmills are,” she added.

Does Boebert think that if fossil fuels are used at any point during the production and maintenance of an alternative energy source, then the whole effort should be abandoned? What is she even trying to get at here? Is her observation of the existence and continued usage of fossil fuels supposed to a “Gotcha!” moment against the libs, or something? What is she even doing while a member of the United States Congress that allows time for tweeting this nonsense?

Somehow, her Twitter activity on Tuesday got even more mind-boggling. She posted a picture of a steak and captioned the image: “Come and take it, Bill.” She appeared to be referring to Bill Gates, the philanthropist who for some reason is a favorite target of conservative conspiracy theories. In recently circulated remarks, Gates said that “all rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef” in order to help deal with the climate crisis, since animal agriculture, especially factory farming in particular, can seriously degrade the environment.

Although there might be a level of sarcasm in Boebert’s remarks, there’s also an apparent level of seriousness. In other words, at least for Boebert, the idea that Bill Gates is going to “take” her steak appears to have joined the idea that governmental authorities are going to “take” Americans’ guns. “Come and take it” is a phrase that’s been used by certain belligerent conservatives in the past in reference to their firearms and governmental authorities.

On Monday of this week, Boebert also posted some nonsense. Displaying vitriolic cultishness like that which led to the rioting at the Capitol on January 6, she said at one point that the “Democrat Party is the greatest threat America faces.”

Among other posts, she petulantly asked whether Democrats will “continue their strategy of blaming President Trump for everything or… get focused on the real issues impacting Americans,” but to be clear: throughout the two years that Democrats held the House while Trump was in office, they passed numerous pieces of legislation that Senate Republicans ignored. Is Boebert in any position to speak authoritatively about working on “real issues” while she’s tweeting about steak and Bill Gates? Are Bill Gates’s thoughts about steak one of the “real issues” that she had in mind?
