“It’s been like this for a long time, but right now, especially if you look around, it’s easy to feel that pretty much everything in our country is broken,” Seth Meyers said in his first episode of Late at night after having taken leave the previous week. “This past year has been a year of unrelenting misery, dysfunction and chaos, and yes, I know I’m starting to look like Werner Herzog at the top of one of these segments.
But with more than 500,000 Americans dead from COVID-19 and an ongoing power and water crisis in Texas, this is where we are. And the host spent the next few minutes hammering Newsmax for his “desperate” attempt to smear Joe Biden’s dog instead of covering the news and Fox News for relentlessly pushing the blatant lie that green energy is to blame Texas.
Fox News’ disinformation machine went to work like clockwork and blamed the Texas power outage on something that currently does not exist in any form in Texas or nationally, the Green New Deal. Meyers said before playing a cut. of the many times Fox anchors hammered this narrative, culminating in Tucker Carlson’s messy rant about “windmills.”
“How would you like to have a windmill in your yard, make some noise, cut down the birds and suck in all your air?” Meyers asked, mimicking host Fox. “How would you like a windmill to move in with you and live in your house, eating all your food and drinking all your booze?” How would you like this windmill to be weirdly close to your wife, to the point where they start shopping together without you, leaving you at home wondering what they’re doing at the mall as you watch by the window at all chopped birds on your lawn?
It continued like this until Meyers, as Carlson warned viewers, “My wife left me for a windmill and that will happen to you too!”
“Of course, it won’t surprise you to learn that this lie is aggressively false and stupid,” he added, coming back to reality, citing a study that showed Texas energy is produced in a big way. part by natural gas and coal with nuclear power. “Which, of course, is Texas!” Meyers said. They had a football team called the Houston Oilers, not the Houston Solar Panels.
“And I’m sorry to have to say that because it’s, you know, incredibly obvious,” he continued, “but the Green New Deal is not something that exists in Texas or nationally. It’s like blaming your problems Avatar 2. It hasn’t been released yet!
Instead, he explained, it was the frozen natural gas lines due to lack of regulation that were the main cause of the outages and that only seven percent of Texas winter power capacity is expected. come from the wind. “Kind of like how you can only believe about seven percent of what you see on Fox News,” Meyers said.
