For the second time in recent months, someone or some group has set fire to construction equipment at the Dakota Access Pipeline site in Reasnor, Iowa. The incident, which damaged an estimated $2 million in equipment, is being treated as arson. It’s unclear who set the fire, and there are currently no suspects identified.Despite the lack of evidence or suspects, Reasnor Assistant Fire Chief Don Steenhoek laid the blame on Dakota Access Pipeline protesters. “[I]t’s pretty senseless,” Steenhoek told local news outlet KCCI. “They’re not getting back at the pipeline. They’re just hurting the guys trying to make a living and put it in.”

    We all know what this is, right? More state-created bs to pin the blame on the protesters.

  3. Historically the majority of the fires and bombings – especially associated with the anarchist movement – were done by government agents. The only exception I have found so far is the suffragette movement. They seem to have set their own bomb.

  4. Fossil fuel industry. CIA. FBI.

  5. Yes, these are all possibilities – to say nothing of the hundreds of private contractors they hire to do their dirty work.
