Moral Arc of Universe Rerouted to Take Shitty Fucking Detour Through North Dakota

The moral arc of the universe, originally scheduled to bend toward justice, was rerouted on Wednesday to take a fucked-up, depressing, half-assed, shit-brained, reprehensible, irresponsible, short-sighted, ill-considered, turd-licking detour through the Standing Rock protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

The pipeline was originally scheduled to bend toward Bismarck, but was rerouted due to fears that oil spills from the pipeline might lead to tainted water being ingested by white people. The owner, Energy Transfer Partners, suggested routing the pipeline through the sacred lands and water supply of North Dakota Sioux, who objected. A compromise was reached in which the pipeline would be routed through the sacred lands and water supply of North Dakota Sioux.

All but a handful of water protectors, some of whom had been there for a year, left the protest site last night. Others defied yesterday’s deadline to leave, and some were arrested. The water protectors have vowed they will continue their efforts to defend the water supplies of America’s indigenous peoples, non-indigenous people, and water-drinking peoples, and they will have plenty of fucking work to do as the moral arc of the universe could be showing up anyfuckingwhere over the next two-to-four years.
