DAPL Protestors Told to Just Go, But Clean Up First

There’s nothing worst than failed leadership that, having made a complete mess of things, just won’t go away. That’s the DAPL protestors today.

Neville Chamberlain’s failure in dealing with Hitler, thereby plunging Europe into complete war, led to Leo Amery, a member of Parliament, telling him this:

You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!

It was an old line, first used by Oliver Cromwell in 1653, but it captured the moment perfectly and Chamberlain was soon gone. I’ve always liked the line and it occurs to me it has some applicability today to the out-of-town DAPL protestors who’ve now made another complete mess of things and worn out their welcome with everyone from the government to the Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault II.

I’ve enjoyed covering the story of the DAPL protestors here for two reasons. Readers are intensely interested in it and it offers a clear view into the completely phony wacky world of fractivism. It’s become obvious to nearly everyone other than an empathetic mainstream media that the DAPL protestors are mostly from everywhere but the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. They’re are as likely to be from New York or New Jersey as anywhere else; malcontents out to prove their virtues to the rest of us by using the Sioux as props in the act. The whole thing is one huge Potemkin Village enterprise, but the village is now blighted by all the garbage.

DAPL Protestors

I’m not kidding or being snarky when I say garbage. Here’s the latest from Seeking Alpha:

North Dakota Gov. Burgum tells Reuters that he believes the Dakota Access Pipeline eventually will be built, and asks protesters at the site to help clean up their camp before spring floodwaters arrive

Dakota Access opponents have argued that construction would damage sacred lands of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and any leaks could pollute the tribe’s water supply.

But Burgum hopes protesters will clean their camp before it becomes its own threat to the environment: More than 300 vehicles, dozens of temporary dwellings and other debris have been abandoned at the campsite, which sits in a flood plain that is likely to be overrun by spring rain and snowmelt.

The Governor isn’t the only one to complain. Here’s what the Standing Rock Sioux Chairman has to say:

Before this entire movement started, that was some of the most beautiful land around…There was a place down there where eagles, over 100 eagles would come and land. There were game down there — deer, pheasants, elk, geese. Now, it’s occupied by people. And when masses of people come to one place, we don’t take care of it…

So how do we make it better? I heard that they’re digging pits down there for their human waste. That’s a flood zone. So when the floodwaters come up, that waste is going to be contaminating the water…

What’s going to happen when people leave? Who has to clean it up? Who has to refurbish it? It’s going to be us, the people who live here.

The Washington Times also recently reported this:

Anywhere from 600 to 800 protesters have refused to heed the Standing Rock Sioux tribal chairman’s call to leave the southern North Dakota camps, braving bitter cold and record snow to build a permanent community as a base from which to fight the fossil fuel industry on a global scale.

Fascinating, isn’t it, how the whole thing has been co-opted by eastern trust-funders and other virtue-signalers with time on their hands. They don’t give a damn about the environment or the Sioux. It’s all about them. No wonder David Archambault sounds a little like Leo Amery these days. He’s had enough of this:

    Well in other news I read some people got arrested in North dakota again and also this fascinating coverage by RT today of some very familiar people!!! Is that Karenna Gore’s friend Dave hey let’s take a nap in the Spectra Aim pipeline ditch Publow getting arrested for a different Spectra pipe years ago? Looks like it to me.

    Only been years and years of the media snoozing through this right? One wonders when they will wake up.


    • There is a federal grand jury in Bismarck investigating the DAPL violence right now.

      A guy named Martinez, involved in the Walinski woman”s injury from the homemade bomb – fashioned from small propane cylinder – is refusing to testify. (Walinski is from Brooklyn).

      By all accounts, the local people are extremely pissed off.

      With the new administration coming into power in DC, this entire episode may, in years to come, be seen as the low water mark in the entire anti fossil fuel hysteria.

      • Well I know she is from NY but did not hear Brooklyn. Did you know Sophie was arrested along with al Gore’s daughter in the spectra aim natural gas pipeline construction ditch last summer? Also there was Tim dechristopher of this climate disobedience group. Someone from that climate disobedience group was arrested as part of the crew that broke into multiple pipelines from Canada to shut off valves.
        Also arrested with karenna gore and Sophie was this guy named dave publow formerly of this group called occupy the pipeline. He was arrested back in 2012 on construction equipment for spectra nynj pipeline project.

  2. David Archambault should share in the blame for this too. He was the one who started it and claimed to be the leader. I believe he was one of the ones who was calling out for people to come to it. The people in Lancaster Pa. that are calling on people to protest the Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline should note the damage to the property and environment this caused. They may end up with the same situation and wish they never invited a bunch of filthy pigs to protest it.

  3. Cut the reservation off. No fuel deliveries whatsoever. Let ’em freeze and push their pickups around. And all the wood these protesters burned? Puhleez!

  4. Take a good look at those protest camps. That is how they would have us all live -in filth, without sanitation, withroads, without transportation, without power…without law.

  5. DAPL is going to be a real test for Pres DT andd his MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. He can make a real statement by telling the Army to approve it NOW!!.
