Never mind Trump, peep North Dakota’s emerging fascism/anti-dissent legislation!


From NBC News here:

Protesters against the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline have expressed dismay at a new slate of bills proposed this week by North Dakota’s Republican-led and largely oil-friendly state legislature that, if passed, could potentially upend their months-long protest movement.

The bills, motivated by residents’ frustration with the ongoing protests in the southern part of the state where the Oceti Sakowin camp is located, would make it a crime for adults to wear masks at protests — similar to the law that lasted for nearly 50 years that was aimed at the Ku Klux Klan — and exempt a driver from liability if they unintentionally injure or kill a pedestrian obstructing traffic on a public road or highway.

I’m okay with exempting drivers from injuring or killing protesting pedestrians if it’s okay for friends of those who are killed/injured to haul the driver out and beat him/her to death.

Because it’s essentially the same thing.  So this is what the great American experiment has come down to — you can run down protesters if they’re in the road???

Sounds like what the fuck material to me.
