You might have heard about the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), or maybe not with all of the craziness due to the Presidential election. If you haven’t stay tuned, we will dig into the details in future posts (coming soon). For now though, we will assume you are familiar with it, and like us, are concerned about the concerns of Native Americans, particularly the Sioux Standing Rock Tribe in North Dakota and their fears of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Unfortunately, reality is stranger than fiction, and the root of this mess has nothing to do with the pipeline or the Tribe’s welfare. We have uncovered several seriously scandalous secrets behind the protests. When you hear these you are going to change your mind and you aren’t going to be supporting the protesters anymore. Instead you will be in favor of the pipeline (which for some of our readers is a scandalous thought by itself) and you will find yourself increasing your support for members of the Tribe at the same time. Yes, these are not mutually exclusive.
Very few of the protesters are actually Native Americans or from the Standing Rock Tribe. One of the respected elders and tribal leaders, Robert Fool Bear Sr., says that many of the protesters are outsiders. Here is an excerpt from a recent article at SayAnythingBlog.com:
Robert Fool Bear Sr. is a member of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. In fact, he’s a tribal leader, serving as the district chairman of Cannon Ball, the tribal community located just a few miles from the often unlawful and sometimes violent protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
He says not everybody at Standing Rock is in support of the protests.
Fool Bear has had it with the protesters. He says that more than two years ago, when members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe could have attended hearings to make their concerns known, they didn’t care. Now, suddenly, the crowds are out of control, and he fears it’s just a matter of time before someone gets seriously hurt.
Go down to the camps, he says, and you won’t see many Standing Rock Sioux.
“It irks me. People are here from all over the world,” he says. “If they could come from other planets, I think they would.”
There is more to say about the issue (see the bit where the Standing Rock Tribe could have attended hearings but they didn’t care? We will get back to that later.
Moving on…a lot of professional protesters, agitators, and eco-terrorists have flocked to North Dakota, subverting Standing Rock and using it for their own cause and using the Tribes to justify outrageous and violent actions against the construction workers, security guards, and local law enforcement. Then they claim that they were merely praying peacefully when they were viciously attacked by mercenaries or that children are suffering because water is being poisoned (both of which are also lies, but we will get to that later with some proof).
So, who are the protesters? Beside a few ignorant and ill-informed celebrities that are so self assured and convinced that they are doing good, many of the protesters are outright criminals looking for excuses to cause mayhem. These are wolves in sheeps clothing preying on the Tribes (in particular those with child abuse records are threats to Native American children that frequent the camps and are taken to the front lines of the protests as human shields), or tugging on the heartstrings of Americans, getting them to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars on GoFundMe and other sites (with no accountability or proof of use). There is a sucker born every minute indeed. If you donated, you should demand a refund. Otherwise, you are funding drug trafficking, vandalism, and a host of other things we don’t need to mention here.
Here are some arrest stats to think about. We will reveal more secrets later (saving the most outrageous and scandalous ones for last).
