ANGRY LEFTISTS Arrested After Storming Montana Capitol to Protest Oil Production (Video)

Angry leftists stormed the Montana capitol on Tuesday demanding that Schweitzer end his support for the Alberta oil pipeline that will carry crude oil from the Alberta tar sands through Montana.
He wouldn’t.
They were arrested.

The Billings Gazette reported:

About 70 protesters thundered into the state Capitol on Tuesday, banging on plastic pails and chanting slogans in opposition to the planned Keystone XL pipeline — slated to carry crude oil from the Alberta tar sands through Montana — and the “megaloads” of oil drilling equipment destined for Alberta.

The group pushed its way into the outer offices of Gov. Brian Schweitzer and had a brief, loud discussion with him in the governor’s reception room.

Most of the protesters left the meeting and continued the demonstration outside Schweitzer’s offices in the hallway leading from the rotunda. Five of the protesters, linked together with makeshift devices of PVC pipe wrapped in chicken wire and other materials, refused to leave and were arrested after several warnings from law enforcement officers.

Arrested and cited for obstruction of justice (because of the pipe mechanism that police said hindered enforcement) and trespassing were Dolan; Johannes Pedersen, 22, of Eugene, Ore.; Erica Gwen Dossa, 24, of Missoula; Shelby Elizabeth Cunliffe, 25, of Missoula; and Sarah Ellen Stock, 25, of Missoula.

…Adrian Guerrero of San Francisco, who said he was with Rising Tide as well as the activist group Earth First, stood on a chair and earned several rounds of loud cheers denouncing the project as an attack on the environment, on indigenous peoples and on the working class.

“We came here to this country with the idea that America be the land of freedom and prosperity and all that b—s—, but what really happened is that people like my family get shoved to the bottom of the f— barrel and that people in those offices, and their corporate lobby, can continue to destroy the environment and throw us off our land, where my father came from, peasant along the side of the f— river in the Amazon, so that we could come here and be the slave class, and then ruin the Earth up here, too,” he said, to a loud round of cheering and drumming.

    One wonders how these protestors got to Montana anyway??? By wind powered vehicles?
    By solar powered vehicles? Did they walk? Did they ride bikes? Or did they arrive by fossil fueled operated vehicles? That would be my guess!!!

    So, if I understand Mr. Guerrero’s point, wherever his family has gone, they’ve been losers. Imagine my surprise.

    Everyting that touches the lives of these idots, eveything they use in their homes, put on their backs, is largely —— an oil by-product. Their little civilization they’ve imagined for themselves would crumble in front of them if they got their way?

    Where is birth control when you really need it????

    He said all this wearing his nylon shirt, dacron undies, synthetic rubber tennies and plastic belt! I am surprised he knew were Montana was coming from San Francisco

    If the radicals have infested Montana, that’s rather alarming. I always seen Montana as an All American state. Maybe the radicals are trying to take it over the way they’re trying to overtake Colorado.

    Shoot. Them.

    You HAVE to have one of these type arrests on your resume before any of a dozen Leftist organizations will hire you… using taxpayer-funded money, of course.

    Ignorant and useless communist dipsticks. I note they are all of working age. From the article it appears their self centered tantrum occurred during the day. I suppose they have night jobs.

    Never could understand why these folks want to protect the environment and also be in favor of abortion.

    “One wonders how these protestors got to Montana anyway???”

    They marched…..They have been duped into the long march. They apparently think its “cool” or something.

    These fools have never stopped and thought about what’s on the other side of capitalism. They just blindly accept what they are told and never research where all this ends.



    “You Americans are so gullible, no, you won’t accept communism out right but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism, we won’t have to fight you, we’ll so weaken your economy until you fall like over ripened fruit into our hands”

    Motley conglomeration of biological degeneracy.

    Has anyone ever noticed its always the same old poorly groomed, foul mouthed, unattractive people that are always complaining about “The Man”, corporations, capitalism, lobbyists, big oil, etc. Their litany of complaints eerily sounds like they are nothing more than children grown old. They have simply moved on from their days as irritable kids when they were constantly bitching about things like, “gee, why do I always have to clean up my room”, “you’re always picking on me”, “why can’t I ever do what I want to do”, “why do I always have to wear clean clothes”, etc.

    Classical victims. Even when they got to see the Governor, there was nothing that would satisfy them. They don’t want a civil dialog because that would diffuse their transferrential anger – which they never want to give up

  • tommy mc donnell

    people that support oil production should be at the capital tomorrow protesting these clowns.

  • Radegunda

    How exactly does that moron think he’ll be more prosperous and free if his energy supply is artificially limited?

  • Saul Alynski

    They love modern technology when they need Syphyllis and AIDS medications.

    Ladies and Gents. This is the LEFT. They don’t play by rules. WE DO. When Kenneth Gladney was beaten. The LEFT lied and perjured at the trial. They don’t play be rules. WE DO.

    It’s coming.
