According to a CNN report and Say Anything coverage, Cannon Ball district chairman Robert Fool Bear Sr. has had enough of the ongoing Dakota Access protest and blames Chairman David Archambault for its escalation.
“If he had any balls, he’d tell [the protesters] to go home,” Fool Bear says.
From trespassing on his land to general lawlessness, Fool Bear says it’s time for protestors to leave and for Archambault to be the one to do it.
“It irks me. People are here from all over the world,” he says. “If they could come from other planets, I think they would.”
According to Fool Bear, he is not alone. Recently, his community voted down a motion from protest organizers to erect a winter camp in Cannon Ball by a staggering 66 to 10.
The report also highlighted that other community members were hesitant to provide their names for fear of retribution from protestors—an unfortunately common occurrence.
Archambault has been all over the country in recent weeks as the protest spins out of control. The chairman continues to preach of a peaceful demonstration whenever he gets the chance, but unfortunately he seems extremely uninformed on what his protest has turned into.
