Cowboys And Indians Descend on Washington To Protest Pipeline
Time ^ | 04-22-2014 | Denver Nicks

A coalition of ranchers, farmers and native tribes are staging protests against the Keystone XL pipeline on the National Mall this week with teepees, horses and a sacred fire that will burn for days

The National Mall in Washington, D.C., will look like a scene out of an Old Western this week, as the Cowboy and Indian Alliance holds a multi-day protest against the Keystone XL pipeline complete with teepees, horses and religious ceremonies.

The confederation of ranchers, farmers and members of Native American tribes kicks off the week of protest and civil disobedience Tuesday, Earth Day, with a horse ride on the Mall and the erection of a ceremonial teepee soundtracked by live music from the Indigo Girls.

I don’t know, but that ‘crowd’ is only 3 or 4 deep. The horses are bunched up and that makes it look larger.

Yes, let’s all live like we only need the energy we needed in the 1800’s.

Darn horseless carriages.

Who will clean up all the horse sh** after these ignorant individuals leave? Will they scoop it up into environmentally evil plastic bags and take it with them? What a pathetic bunch...

From the article: "Events through the week are expected to draw about 200 participants, with a much larger group of 5,000 expected for a larger march on Saturday,"

Wow. Overwhelming. Not like the TEA party came to town or something...(I bet they counted the horses).

Will Liz Warren join the spectacle in either cowboy hat or head dress?

Well the national media has already discredited all ranchers, and just look at that picture, can they get any more racist and insulting to Native Americans?
Of course that would be the media angle had they come out and supported the pipeline.

All of these folks make their living off the backs of the tax-payers. Nothing but parasites...looking for the next guvament handout.

Not to mention the pollution from the “sacred fire” that they promise will burn for days...

A job that is fitting for them.

Actually, the entire anti-drilling, anti-fracking, anti-rail shipment, anti-pipeline bunch has been amping up for the midterms.

I expect a lot more Astroturf Theater productions in the near future.

From article: “Most of this week’s activities will feature about 200 participants, with a larger 5,000 or so expected for a rally Saturday. The permit says the park service anticipates 150 participants.”:

Well, the 5,000 peak is probably in their dreams unless they are giving out free firewater and doobies.

My kid’s band booster club could turn out more than the 150 oppressed that the park service expects.

Some protest. More like a fire drill at the local bathhouse and coffee shop on “Brokeback Mountain Day”.

Another Marxist, made for TV news propaganda moment.

This kind of poser BS is so common and transparent anymore, I can’t see how it has any effect whatsoever other than to pi$$ me off.

Well funded with $audi Dollar$ from oil profits.

NOBODY can see a pipeline once YOU BURY IT IN THE GROUND.

Horsies can trit-trot right over it, cattle and injuns, too.
