But it isn’t trash when they trash the place. From March:

[Pres­i­dent Trump] signed an exec­u­tive order to get the Dakota Access and Key­stone pipeline projects mov­ing — and the envi­ron­men­tal left has been defeated. They caused much grief when they descended into North Dakota to make a stand for mother Earth. Now that the project is back on track, they left, among other things, moun­tains of garbage as they vacated the area. Addi­tion­ally, they left their pets as well. Local ani­mal res­cue groups have been comb­ing the protest camps search­ing for aban­doned dogs. They also set their camp on fire. In an ironic twist, the amount of waste left at these sites pre­sented a dan­ger that it could pol­lute water­ways if the spring melt washes this garbage and debris into the Mis­souri River sys­tem; this is one of the main rea­sons why green pro­test­ers staged a weeks-​long cam­paign against the pipeline project.

Well, it’s all done now at the cost of $1.1 mil­lion and 835 dump­sters worth of trash.

Empha­sis mine. Oh yes and much of the trash was frozen.

It’s dif­fi­cult for a sane per­son to wrap her head around envi­ron­men­tal­ists protest­ing a project in the name of envi­ron­men­tal­ism while poi­son­ing their protest space at the same time. It’s almost as if the pro­test­ers have been dri­ven mad…or didn’t know what they were there for.

Peo­ple like me have con­tended that almost all protests — espe­cially those done in the name of Left­ist causes — are funded. The nature of this one seems to make that the­ory more plau­si­ble. Think of it. If you’re get­ting paid just to plant your­self in a place for a cer­tain length of time and act up a bit, you don’t care about the alleged rea­son you’re there. As a mat­ter of fact, squat­ting and act­ing up were the true pur­poses – not to men­tion funded recreation.

Per­sonal spec­u­la­tion: the type of per­son who is a paid pro­tester couldn’t care less about the explicit con­tra­dic­tion in protest­ing “poi­son­ing” while poi­son­ing. It’s just party time until the party is over. Then it’s time for some­one else to pick up the pieces – any­one but them­selves. And, this is a con­sis­tent after­math of Leftist-​generated protests.

About the aban­doned pets: lucky dogs.

But it isn’t trash when they trash the place. From March:

[President Trump] signed an executive order to get the Dakota Access and Keystone pipeline projects moving—and the environmental left has been defeated. They caused much grief when they descended into North Dakota to make a stand for mother Earth. Now that the project is back on track, they left, among other things, mountains of garbage as they vacated the area. Additionally, they left their pets as well. Local animal rescue groups have been combing the protest camps searching for abandoned dogs. They also set their camp on fire. In an ironic twist, the amount of waste left at these sites presented a danger that it could pollute waterways if the spring melt washes this garbage and debris into the Missouri River system; this is one of the main reasons why green protesters staged a weeks-long campaign against the pipeline project.

Well, it’s all done now at the cost of $1.1 million and 835 dumpsters worth of trash.

Emphasis mine. Oh yes and much of the trash was frozen.

It’s difficult for a sane person to wrap her head around environmentalists protesting a project in the name of environmentalism while poisoning their protest space at the same time. It’s almost as if the protesters have been driven mad…or didn’t know what they were there for.

People like me have contended that almost all protests—especially those done in the name of Leftist causes—are funded. The nature of this one seems to make that theory more plausible.  Think of it. If you’re getting paid just to plant yourself in a place for a certain length of time and act up a bit, you don’t care about the alleged reason you’re there. As a matter of fact, squatting and acting up were the true purposes–not to mention funded recreation.

Personal speculation: the type of person who is a paid protester couldn’t care less about the explicit contradiction in protesting “poisoning” while poisoning. It’s just party time until the party is over. Then it’s time for someone else to pick up the pieces–anyone but themselves. And, this is a consistent aftermath of Leftist-generated protests.
