WATCH: First Nations man confronts hypocrites at pipeline protest, “You’re not helping us”

Rebel Staff

During the anti-Kinder Morgan pipeline protest in Vancouver over the weekend, I ran into Elliot Adam, a young status First Nations man who was put out of work in Alberta along with a hundred thousand others.

While Elliot has landed on his feet here in Vancouver he still has a lot to say about the hypocrisy of the protesters and the leadership that supposedly represents First Nations interests.

Watch as I discuss with him why he decided to come out and show his displeasure with what was going on and as he confronts Grand Chief Stewart Phillip from the BC Union of Indian Chiefs.

Like so much of what we bring you at The Rebel, this is something you wont see anywhere else.

Look for a full report on the protest tomorrow as I bring you more of the opponents and proponents of the project I spoke with, some of whom just might surprise you.

Michael Sweet what damage? There are millions of kilometres of pipe. You are so full of shit your eyes are brown.

You could probably knock that guy out with one punch you know

Michael Sweet, I do not believe you for one minute I too have worked in the industry, and I know I do not speak for everyone in the Industry. But I do know I have worked in it long enough to know that you are full of it! Pipelines are the safest way to transport product to market! I am calling you out as a fraud!

These days, the aboriginals claim that their creator god just put all of them on North America. So therefore, they are not descendant of immigrants.

To the native chiefs . . . who live LARGE off us taxpayers . . .

I have been supporting your worthless ass for a hundred years . . . . if I leave do I get my money back?

About 20 years ago I had an opportunity to spend an afternoon with a Blackfoot Chief . . . he told me how his ancestors came to North America across a land bridge from Asia . . . so I said to him “you are immigrants here too” . . . he did not argue.

Coming from a culture that followed the buffalo and salmon for a few centuries, and did not even invent the wheel . . . you should be mighty glad that the Vikings came here over 1300 years ago, followed by the French, British and Spanish.

Imagine if the world had left you alone . . . you would not be sitting in a bar with your I-phone today . . .

Instead you would be sitting in a smokey TeePee chewing on dried Pemican or dried Salmon . . . without a drink . . . but possibly contemplating the WHEEL . . . .

PS: Anyone who gets continually robbed by their Chief and treated like a share cropper in the middle ages by their own people, perhaps you have bigger problems than biting the hand that FEEDS YOU !

These far-left loons are hypocrits . . . they would turn Canada into Venezuela of the North!

China is currently the number one producer in the world of wind and solar power, but don’t use it themselves. While they manufacture 80% of the world’s solar panels, they install less than 5% and
build a new coal fired power station every week.
In one year they turn on more new coal powered electricity than Australia’s total output. China currently controls more than 90% of the total global supply of rare earth elements.

They are already the largest carbon dioxide emitter and their output will rise 70% by 2020.

And we think we’re saving the planet?

It will not make one iota of difference what we do in Australia, Canada, the United States or anywhere else in the world for that matter.

All the politicians are doing is increasing our cost of living and making our manufacturers uncompetitive in the world market, with their idiotic carbon tax.
When countries like China are growing and consuming at these extraordinary rates!

Time to wake up!

Michael Sweet So you think you speak for them you pathetic troll. Does he not act like he is told, think what you tell him to, and GASP WANTS TO WORK FOR A LIVING, seems he is on the ball and has his path forward, just not the endless violence and poverty you seem to demand he accept.

elliot adam does not speak for the majority of first nations and he is a digrace to the nations he needs to get back to his roots and start thinking to the 7 th generation and that is not with the destruction of the envoronment with these pipelines as a welder of 40 years millwright 35 the last 25 of those years straight on emmissions controls for industry and i lived in alberta for 11 years and seen the damages first hand and know the full damages pipelines can produce and will produce it not if its a matter of when and how long it takes them to identify there is a problem and they all start out small leaks and like the drip of a tap can cost you fortunes if on a meter but if this small amount hits the groundwater and bedrock its impossible to remove and it poisons the watershed for miles and miles and its irreversable im not against removing it but am in the transportation of it by pipelines tankers triple lined double valved ok by rail and semi but no pipelines period they will cause too much damage that cant be rerversed its ones like elliot adam that does not represent first nations as he deifinately does not follow the red road and needs to get back on the path he has chosen the path of colonialism not the red road

This is the type of Canadian with common sense that we need in the PM office, he would get my vote.
commented 2016-11-22 06:12:25 -0500
And then the left thugs appeared so open minded, when they saw TheRebel, they started freeking out, scared of the truth .
commented 2016-11-22 03:32:00 -0500
I would love to see more of Elliot on the rebel. This one video alone does more to heal the historical wounds than anything the left has done since the closing of the residential schools.

Steve Hicken got that right, worked with many on the pipeline.
commented 2016-11-21 23:22:11 -0500
Liza Rosie: I agree with you…May screeching in the background.
She lives in Saanich where the average house is $890K plus she makes $211K+.
How much did Elliot say he made?
commented 2016-11-21 23:19:45 -0500
Steve Hicken, you are absolutely right! Furthermore, those people who protest and the indian chief get their money from the government which in turn takes it well I should say used to take it from the people who used to work in the oil industry. So it’s a complete nonsense that they protest. All these people probably drive cars, I am sure they dont use a bike, and they prefer to buy arab oil and make the world terrorism continue. What a bunch or retards!
commented 2016-11-21 23:11:45 -0500
That was very good. Elliot and Bernard, two really intelligent, articulate and knowledgeable men who know what they are talking about. Why not have them give speeches in the public square and let everyone hear them?
Keep their voices heard loud and strong.
Really good Christopher.
commented 2016-11-21 22:20:06 -0500
lot of Indians work in oil and gas and mining earning 150 grand a year. have nice homes off the reservations These are the people that need to talk to the rest of them and get on with life and let this country grow.
commented 2016-11-21 22:02:10 -0500
Don’t you just love how these people refuse to speak with them based purely on their being with Conservative media? Parasites know they have no argument.
commented 2016-11-21 21:59:54 -0500
I’ve had it with these enviro-retards. It’s time to take up arms and go to war with these losers. They’ve declared war long ago.

The chief is a paleface puppet, did you see the white woman who interdicted as his “handler” – why is it all these Aboriginal leaders have white handlers? Because they have sold themselves out as “tokens” for white lefty politics.
commented 2016-11-21 21:28:38 -0500
ELLIOT , is the man that would make a great Chief, he has true concern for all people working in energy sector
Chief Philips , we , all of us can see right through you , you phoney!!!
Your like an old stew left at the back of the fridge and forgotten- SPOILED ROTTEN
commented 2016-11-21 21:05:40 -0500
The Chief talks like a simpleton, what does he care since there will be no stopping of his padded cheques from the taxpayers. Kudos to Mr. Adam for speaking out. Funny how. they all rush to the Chief’s defence to make sure he stands his ground. He’s there but too lazy to stand & listen to the no brainers spew their broken record rhetoric.
commented 2016-11-21 20:33:01 -0500
The young hard working youth of this country are being disenfranchised and betrayed at every turn. Not a good outcome!
commented 2016-11-21 20:17:07 -0500
Good for this man for speaking up! Check out Brad Trost’s facebook page re: Firearms and phasing out coal. Someone’s talking sense! Refreshing!
commented 2016-11-21 20:03:33 -0500
I also note that the official Indian looks less Indian than Mr. Adam. Go figure.
commented 2016-11-21 19:27:47 -0500
Where to begin in what could be an overly long post.

First, good on Mr. Adam for standing up for the real Indians.

Second, I will satisfy myself with pointing out how the wicked whitey witch of the left coast interposed herself at the end of the video between Mr. Adam and her bought and paid for official Indian. That said it all!
commented 2016-11-21 19:08:37 -0500

The Chief didnt have a single legitimate retort to the questions by that hard working young man! Bravo to that young man for standing up for what he beleives in!

Then the social justice warrior runs in and starts crying “antagonizer” even though she has NO FUGGING CLUE what questions have been asked and what is being discussed. Fugging social justice CUCKS make me sick!
commented 2016-11-21 19:05:24 -0500
I’d guess that of all revenue to FN’s… salaries, government funding, etc…. very likely 80% comes from natural resources and government (taxes including revenue from the energy / resource sectors).
It goes against all reason and logic for FN leaders to oppose these sector. It boils down the divisive identity and oppression politics from the left…. and these lefty political tactics would be ineffective if FN’s were successful… in summary, misery loves company. The left thrives on misery and has no interest in making the lives of FN peoples better… and for FN ‘leaders’ to go alone with this, is absurd.
commented 2016-11-21 19:04:01 -0500
3:54 big chief says, " ya well, needless to say that you’re right" then goes on to say, but the vast majority of Canadians bla bla bla.
So he agrees with Elliot’s point of view but what? Is he being strong armed, knows it has nothing to do with whats ‘right’, and doesn’t care? Geez Louise.

Chief Stewart Phillip is a liar.
