It needs to be LOUDLY emphasized that this is a lie. Wind and solar power actually overperformed expected winter capacity in Texas. The state was crippled by frozen coal and gas plants, knocking out over 30 gigawatts of power. Sources below.
Our governor is not ignorant of these facts. He is simply a liar.

I live in Houston. You might think you live a more ethnically diverse city than me. You do not.
A lot of Twitter today is cheering on the death of elderly minorities as they freeze in their apartment complexes in the most progressive cities in the nation.
The amount of ignorance on display during this crisis is staggering.

LOL wtf is happening, Dogecoin is exploding. Worth a penny and a half at the moment and skyrocketing. Up 88% in an hour!
My theory is that nobody can trade after-hours but they're too amped up and need a fix.
This may look like a fun thing to play around with late at night, but BE CAREFUL. It's insanely volatile. It could collapse in a matter of minutes, or it may shoot through the ceiling. There's no precedent here so nobody can do anything but guess.

I just lived through every right-wing journalist on the planet straight up licking the president's balls for four years but now some unknown NYT editor made a cringey post about having chills over the transfer of power so she has to be fired because it made Greenwald testy? What?
There are no objective journalists. They are all wrapped up in their own ideology and carefully curated personal baggage, Greenwald more so than most.
LOL are you kidding me, this is the most lib thing ever. This tweet is a parody of itself.

Not happy seeing these liberals trying to act all casual enjoying the Bernie meme. We remember what you did to him.
Me and the gang when some MSNBC pundit retweets the Bernie meme.
Got bored and started responding to everyone like I'm a tavern keeper in a medieval fantasy story and it's causing considerable confusion.

MLK, Communism, the Highlander Folk School: How red-baiting continues to obscure the most potent elements of MLK’s message.
Many of you know the picture above, but fewer know where it was taken. It is the Highlander Folk School, a social justice leadership training school in Tennessee created to provide training and education for emerging left-wing movement leaders, primarily in the South.
Notable students include King, Septima Clark, Anne Braden, James Bevel, Hollis Watkins, Bernard Lafayette, Ralph Abernathy, and most of the leaders of SNCC.
