Whether you’re for or against the Dakota Access pipeline, there’s no doubt it’s controversial. It’s the fucking definition of controversial.

Yesterday, the Fargo Forum published an infographic titled “DAPL By The Numbers.” With a general title like that, we expected a graphic representing both sides of the debate over the controversial Dakota Access pipeline.
Last week, in his last hours as North Dakota governor, Jack Dalrymple provided several newspapers with an op-ed defending his handling of the Dakota Access pipeline protests.
Doug Burgum posted his first video as North Dakota governor today, and he sounds exactly like the other guy who just left office.
There has been a lot of speculation lately about what former Lieutenant Governor Drew Wrigley will do next. Another run for public office is possible, but it’s hampered by his 2015 admission that he fucked around on his wife.

North Dakota police officials have no problem spraying Dakota Access pipeline protesters with water in winter. But an American flag being flown upside down? Now that’s inhumane.
Defenders of the Dakota Access pipeline, including North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple, have characterized pipeline protesters as “out-of-state agitators” causing trouble in this otherwise peaceful state.
North Dakota newspaper chain Forum Communications continues to peddle the claim that “paid protesters” are fueling the opposition to the Dakota Access pipeline, without citing any evidence.
