My Weary Thoughts On DAPL & The Oregon Standoff

Ok, let’s all be real here, son. Being White is CLEARLY awesome, man. Honestly, it must be the best thing in the world. I mean, White people can literally do ANYTHING and get away with it. It’s absolutely amazing to see, man. Keeping it a buck, after seeing what happened with the White militia members involved in the Oregon standoff, I must say, I’m a little too weary to be as outraged as I should. However; here goes nothing, son.

So, before I continue, let me try to make sense of all of this. Now, back in January, a group of armed militants took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge building in Oregon. They had gripes with federal control of local land and vowed to occupy the building until said land was turned over to local authorities. Wait, did I mention the fact they were ARMED AND TOOK OVER A FEDERAL FUCKING BUILDING?! Ok, eventually, they were apprehended by police and charged with “possessing a firearm in a federal facility” and “conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs.” After taking a look at this picture, the case should’ve been easy, right? Wrong! Really fucking wrong, son!

After all of the hoopla, everyone involved in this situation was acquitted of their crimes. Now, I want everyone to re-read the charges against them, go back and look at the embedded picture and explain this shit to me. How in the entire fuck did these fucks get acquitted, son?! At the bare minimum, WE KNEW THEY HAD GUNS BECAUSE WE SAW THEM! Good Lord, man, White people don’t even get in trouble for shit we know they did! Meanwhile, Native American protestors are getting arrested, beaten and shot at ON THEIR OWN SACRED LAND for speaking against a crude-oil pipeline! Man, I literally don’t understand how this country works, son.

Now, for those who are unaware, the protest I’m referring to is a fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. If this pipeline were built, it would run through numerous sacred sites and underneath the water supply for the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Needless to say, this would HUGELY effect the lives of the Native Americans living there. These reservations are a small piece of THEIR ACTUAL LAND that they have left and it’s being taken away from them too. They have every right to protest, yet they’re being victimized, publicly. Meanwhile, White people with guns can commandeer an entire federal building and shit is all good. I’m fucking done, man. Done!

In the end, fuck this country, son. I’m sorry, man, but there isn’t much positivity in this God-forsaken place. The government sucks, the police suck, capitalism sucks, it all sucks. I used to joke about it, but I’m really thinking about leaving. Let these racist and bigoted idiots tear themselves to shreds. Fuck ’em.
