When will liberals face the reality that Obama is just another corporate shill. He has no intention of stopping this pipeline, and he's looking at a lucrative future as a member of all kinds of corporate boards, and of emulating Hill and Bill on the lecture circuit. He's not going to call off the thug cops and the National Guard, even as they fire potentially lethal beanbag projectiles from shotguns and rubber-coated bullets from guns at courageous young Native Americans, even killing a horse already, and injuring numbers of people. Even though the private security company hired by the pipeline company sent an undercover provocateur into the encampment with a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle,, quite likely with the intent of firing in the direction of police and Guardsmen in order to precipitate another "Wounded Knee" massacre.
Hillary Clinton has said nothing about demanding a halt to this atrocity either. She is struck dumb by the fact that the company confronting the Sioux Water Protectors is a wealthy oil company -- the kind of firm that has greased her political rise. She should rot in hell for the people whose deaths around the world she is responsible for, and if there is deadly violence perpetrated against the Standing Rock activists, it will be on both her and Obama's hands.
