North Dakota Governor Activates National Guard Against Pipeline Protest

national-guard-pipelineBy Nick Bernabe

Previously peaceful protests at the construction site of the Dakota Access pipeline have officially been militarized. North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple has called on the state’s National Guard to reinforce law enforcement at the construction site where Native American protesters are currently blocking further development.

Over the weekend, peaceful protests turned turned violent after security guards from G4S, a British mercenary group, unleashed dogs on the demonstrators, provoking a confrontation the media spun as violently aggressive on the part of those protesting. The scuffle ensued after construction workers allegedly destroyed sacred Native American burial sites. However, video from the scene tells a different story — one of provocation from proponents of pipeline security.

The activation of the National Guard is likely a backup measure as the pipeline company and protesters await a court decision that could give pipeline construction a green light, possibly causing further confrontation between law enforcement, mercenaries, and protesters. The National Guard has a long history of violently crushing civil unrest in the United States.

A spokesman from the Red Warrior Camp, located at the construction site, has issued this statement:

  1. Which side is Soros funding, and does he or Warren Buffett own G4S?

    • He’s funding the red terrorists, of course. They’re the red version of BLM, another Soros commodity.

      Just read this morning that Buffet is somehow connected to G4S, can’t remember exactly how. You can Google it probably.

  2. Who the frell is funding the protesters???

  3. Don’t you love the rank bias in this “report?”
    Security “unleashed dogs” on the protestors. No mention is made that this was a response to the red terrorists breaking down fencing, threatening and even injuring some security members and even dogs.
    Finally, the military is being put to some productive use.

    • Hey Rodger! Get a life and realize what’s really at stake here. Pretty pathetic when a grown man feels sorry for an illegal fence! You sir and those who think like you, are the reasons this country is going to the dogs.

      That is mainstream media lies. The Native Americans haVe attacked no one, they are pacifists that is part of their relligious beliefs. You have it all wrong, the security company attacked the water protecters with dogs, a child was taken to hospital after having been bitten in the face with attack dogs.Watch the video above, it shows it all there and not one water protecter is ever being violent.

      Hope whatever you were paid for being a lying troll was worth 5 cents per word you got paid.

  4. It’s hilarious to see these red terrorists on horses. They wouldn’t even HAVE them if the evil white man hadn’t introduced the animals to North America.
    They wouldn’t have this internet forum to advertise their lies and criminal actions if not for the technology created by the evil white man.
    They wouldn’t even have devices to access this forum if not for petroleum products created by the heroic oil companies, started and capitalized by the evil white man.
    Hypocrites, all of them!

    • TROLL!!!

      Your comment is DESPICABLE. Haven’t Native Americans suffered enough from people like you? Your kind legally hunted Native Americans not so long ago and the last stand of the CA Pomo was made right on the land where I live.
      Your comments are disgusting and hateful and you tell only lies; your hatred will eat you alive one day.

    • are you human? doubt that very much. useless moon. FU!!!!!

  5. What happened to our right to protest? The right to free speech? The right for Redress of Grievances? The right to peacefully assemble? This is TYRANNY, just as was the attacks on private citizens, by the Bureau of Land Management in Nevada, Oregon and other illegal and tyrannical federal agencies in other states! If we don’t stand up for fellow Americans, it will be OUR property, OUR lives that get taken next! WAKE UP! had we stood with the Bundys in Nevada and the ranchers/The Hammonds/Lavoy Finicum protesting in Oregon, these Native Americans would not be fighting the Evil Empire now!
