The KXL pipeline spilled 383000 gallons of oil onto North Dakota wetlands. The exact shit the indigenous water protectors told us would fuckin happen. Too many were stuck in a colonized mindset lambasting and doubting all who were #NODAPL and #NOKXL. So to fully unpack of where to lay blame. The Obama administration initially broke the treaties that allowed these lines to run through tribal lands that serve as preserves for natural resources including waterways. The Army Corps of Engineers actually argued against the pipelines which held up the black snake’s progress until Trump came in and disrespectfully ignored them. And now there’s poison leaking all over the wetlands. As it rains the oil will make its way to the rivers and also further bleed black into the soil. So on top of all of the brutality committed against the water protectors now the North Dakota landscape has been irreparably damaged. It’s a continuation of manifest destiny.
So the latest in what fucking reality do we live in? Well we have sent 3000 troops, an air expeditionary wing (logistics & maintenance), PATRIOT batteries, 1 THAAD (Terminal Altitude Air Defense) and a fighter squadron to Saudi Arabia who’s actually footing the bill for all this. Wait, stop the tape! Did you just read that a foreign power is paying for American military intervention? Yes, you did. So to unpack this. Trump has actually sold military resources to include actual personnel to a foreign power as though they’re a private security force or mercenaries to a nation that is known for funding terrorism to include 9/11 and numerous crimes against humanity. The bought and sold American muscle will be protecting oil and likely drawn into an illegal war with Iran. So now the reality is that our military is no longer beholden to the Constitution or any ideas of America but actually the highest bidder. This isa frightening and bleak time we occupy. We can change this and we must! #punkvoter #bethemovement
