#GreenFail: Taxpayers Foot $107K Bill for Wind Turbines That Don't Work

Wind turbines are racist. Let me explain.

Have you ever seen a black wind turbine? No. Have you ever seen a brown wind turbine? No. They’re all white. Every. Single. One.

But wind turbines aren’t just gigantic, racially insensitive, diversity-denying jerks. They have other vices as well.

Recently, Seattle’s Waterfront Park decided it would be a good idea to buy a set of three wind turbines for around $107,000. The three wind turbines (who are all white, if you were wondering) will generate $1.39 worth of electricity a day, or a spectacular $42 a month.

Now, that may not seem like a lot, but that’s because that’s the low estimate. At peak generation, the turbines will create about . . . wait for it . . . over 5 bucks a day! Or $168 a month in electricity! At that rate, it will only take about 53 years for the wind turbines to pay for themselves! Well, assuming no maintenance costs. Or staffing. Or anything else.

City Councilwoman Sissi Bruch summed up the wind turbines’ energy production perfectly --- along with the reason government is horrible at everything:

“I did not realize they would produce so little energy. I wouldn’t have voted for it knowing it was that little.” Of course, even these disastrous estimates are just guesses.

City officials can’t even be sure because, you know, they’re wind turbines. They can’t predict wind speeds. They aren’t God.

One other minor issue --- even the crappy amount of electricity they were supposed to generate is difficult to live up to when they aren’t even turned on. A maintenance issue is preventing them from actually operating.

Of course, green energy projects rarely have anything to do with green energy. An operational set of wind turbines was never the intent of the city council. Their main function? According to Nathan West, director of community and economic development for Seattle, they were built “to ensure we have a vertical element to draw visitors to the park.” To translate, they were built to look pretty.

Sure, they’ll be able to generate enough energy to illuminate some lights in the park as well (when they’re finally turned on), but the reality is they are just there as a “design element” that adds to the “positive aesthetic” in the park and “symbolizes energy creation.”

$107,000 to symbolize energy creation.

The only thing these wind turbines symbolize is wasted tax payer money --- and white supremacy.

And that’s why the wind turbines at Waterfront Park in Washington are yet another #GreenFail!

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

WATCH this pastor chase 'communist' cops out of his church: 'Gestapo is not allowed here!'

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Who Is the Real Jesus? | Dallas Jenkins | Ep 103

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller. And he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible. Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God. Glenn and Dallas break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is and paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Comply or Die: How America Will Enforce TOTAL Wokeness

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.
