Pipeline protesters vow to stay camped on federal land

Quote:
Dakota Access oil pipeline protesters will not follow a government directive to leave the federal land where hundreds have camped for months, organizers said Saturday, despite state officials encouraging them to do so.

“We are wardens of this land. This is our land and they can’t remove us,” said protester Isaac Weston, who is an Oglala Sioux member from South Dakota. “We have every right to be here to protect our land."

Republican U.S. Sen. John Hoeven and Democratic U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp said the protesters need to move for public safety.

“The well-being and property of ranchers, farmers and everyone else living in the region should not be threatened by protesters who are willing to commit acts of violence,” Hoeven said in a statement Friday.

Violent rednecks occupying federal land in defiance of orders to vacate, eh? We've seen this before. Bundy's inbred crew succeeded in making this type of terrorism seem acceptable. It's been going on for months, and I haven't even heard anyone call for the feds to storm them with tanks and assault rifles yet.

What's up with that?

@layman,
For some reason there's a double standard. Bundy's bag of nuts are called activists, and seem to have had the support of the idiot rednecks that live in my neighborhood. The pipeline protestors (in a similar situation) are called whiners and troublemakers and terrorists by these same rednecks.
The Confederate Flag and AK-47 waving militia members are called "Freedom Fighters", upholding the traditions of the Founding Fathers and are "True Americans". Nobody ever calls them terrorists.....????

What's your standard here, Tom? Is it the same for both?

Are both groups freedom fighters? Are both groups terrorist?

Does (did) one group have good justification for illegally occupying federal land, while one doesn't (didn't)?

@layman,
No, absolutely not. They are terrorists. Period. And should be dealt with as such. Federal troops, locked and loaded, no excuses.

Fair enough. But I have a feeling that you're not going to be very popular around these here parts after saying that. There may be a movement to have you banned, who knows?

@layman,
That sounds like fun.
Don't get me wrong, I believe in the Constitution and the right to protest. But "occupying" Federal land is a step too far. I wonder how I would be treated if I decided to "occupy" a Federal building because I was unhappy with a law or a decision.
I am alone and I have white skin, so they would lock me up and forget about me.

@TomTomBinks,
I recently learned that the ownership of the land in question in the Dakota Pipeline issue is in dispute. That changes things. The legal dispute should be cleared up before anything should be built on the land, IMO.

I hadn't heard that, but I agree. If, however, it is just some frivolous claim being made for the purpose of causing unwarranted delay, then the false claimant could be subject to some serious liability for damages caused.
