WTF?

I just saw a Credo petition to “Make Standing Rock a national monument.” This is an excellent example of “Heart in the right place, brain missing.” Because the whole reason Standing Rock is such a big issue is because that’s First Nations owned land, technically another country altogether, and the cops and other aggressors there have NO jurisdiction there at all. And, well, national monuments can only be on land that the government owns. From a legal standpoint, that land is technically a different country altogether. This petition is almost as stupid as would be a petition calling for Obama to make Toronto Canada a national monument. So, yeah. Cue Hermione saying “What. An. Idiot.”
