Obama Celebrates Independence Day by Murdering Bald Eagles

President Obama will celebrate the 4th of July weekend in part by ritually sacrificing majestic bald eagles on the alter of “green energy.” Liberals might call that progress. Real Americans would rightly call it what it is: bird murder.

Last week, the Obama administration gave a California wind farm permission to kill bald eagles with impunity for up to 30 years. The birds are supposed to be protected under federal law; without a waiver from the president, killing them would result in six-figure fines and up to 18 months in prison per eagle.

The move is just the latest escalation in the administration’s eco-genocide, which biologists estimate is responsible for the horrific death of hundreds of thousands of birds each year. The birds are typically chopped out of the sky in brutal fashion by the enormous and unsightly turbine blades.
