Oh, no – not me – at least not in the traditional sense. I gave up drinking over 30 years ago. Now, my body might be a little trashed between the joint stuff and the Shingles with which I am currently dealing, but I don’t mean that, either.
No, I am talking about how the so-called “Environmentalists” left their protest site against the oil pipeline in North Dakota. It is not overstating the case to say they left a MOUNTAIN of trash at their protest camp site. From Washington Free Beacon:
State and tribal sanitation crews are rushing to remove piles of waste and debris left over from the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline before weather warms and the mountains of trash turn toxic.
According to cleaning crews, they’re worried they might even find dead bodies among the piles of refuse that now pollute areas where anti-pipeline protesters camped out for months.
“It’s estimated it will take 250 trucks filled with litter to clear the camp,” according to a local NBC affiliate. Once the spring thaw comes, the area could be at risk of major environmental damage. “In a month, all this trash could become toxic.” […] (Click here to read the rest.)
Possible dead bodies?? Are you kidding me with that?? For real? It is bad enough that these people literally trashed the very earth they claimed to care about, but if indeed there are dead bodies in there, the callousness toward the deceased is appalling.
And to give you an idea of just what this Protest site looked like, check out this Twitter link with a video of the cleanup from Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall (sorry, this isn’t available on Youtube):
It is just incredible to see what these people left behind. I am glad that churches will be able to make use of some of the tents and leftover food, but really – it sure doesn’t help the cause any for people who claim to be environmentalists to trash an area SO badly.
Here are a couple of photos from The American Mirror:
Yep – that is how so-called “environmentalists” leave places. For more photos, you can click HERE.
I should add, I am a tree-hugger from way back. I know the difference between what a real environmentalist is, and these people defy the very definition of what an environmentalist is. They sure as hell were not acting as “stewards of the land” in their claims to be standing up for the land.
But hey – they aren’t the only protesters who trash where they have been. Did you see what the Marching Ladies did to Mother Earth? Yeah – they trashed her, too:
Yep – that is how these women (and men) left the joint after they were done with it. Telling, that, and none of it good.
I gotta say, it doesn’t do a whole lot for their mission – especially the so-called Environmentalists – when they leave areas much, much worse off than the way they found them.
And the attitude that allows someone to act like this just eludes me. They seem to think they can trash places all they want and the “Maid” – that would be us, the American Taxpayers – will clean up after them. Evidenty they can’t be bothered to act like responsible, thoughtful people themselves.
Honestly, I still cant get over that there might be dead people in the rubbish in North Dakota. What the hell are we coming to here? Wow…
I think Reba McEntire might be onto something with her latest hit:
Heaven knows, we could use some prayer and we could sure do a whole worse than giving it back to God.
Heck, we ARE doing worse. Dead bodies in rubbish in the United States is something I never thought I would see. Time for a change, seems to me, and yes, we are “still worth saving…” Thank heavens for that…
That’s what I think. How about you? This is an Open Thread.
