They have arrived, and they’re not leaving until they get what they want. It’s glorious.
The Independent reports that Justin Trudeau has been whisked away to a “secret location” out of fear for his safety. I’ve seen reports that he’s actually in the U.S., which would technically make him in exile, but it’s all speculation at this point.
Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and his family have left their home in Ottawa for a secret location, the CBC reports, amid security concerns as thousands pour into the Canadian capital on Saturday in trucker convoys to protest vaccine mandates.
The PM’s office has said it will not comment on Mr Trudeau’s location for security reasons.
The Canadian Parliament’s Sergeant-at-Arms has warned that demonstrators could show up at the homes of officials, something Mr Trudeau knows well.
In 2020, a Canadian Armed Forces member carrying a gun rammed his vehicle into the gates of Rideau Hall, where the Trudeaus live, hoping to reach the prime minister.
Mr Trudeau has condemned the growing anti-mandate movement in the country as contrary to public health and Canadian values of kindness.
Kindness? Are you kidding me? The vax mandater is talking about kindness here? Fuck outta here.
The playbook here for the Bad Guys–which is to say, Trudeau, Western governments and the corporate media–is going to be to paint the protesters as angry, violent and dangerous extremists–and, of course, white supremacists. That part always gets the young white liberal counter-protesters/Antifa thugs going.
Here we’ve got a “journalist” named Mackenzie Gray who is looking through the crowds with a fine-toothed comb in hopes of finding someone–anyone–that he can plausibly claim is a RACIST™, and then use that one person to smear everyone else in the crowd as a RACIST™. It’s corporate media 101: Find the needle in the haystack, and then call the haystack a needlestack.
If you zoom in on the picture of the “racist” in the crowd, you can see a photographer taking a picture of the man with the “Confederate flag” (it looks like it has something in the middle that’s not normally on Confederate flags, although it’s unclear what).
The media will ignore thousands of other people and focus on the one guy that they can portray as a DANGEROUS WHITE SUPREMACIST, as if one guy is representative of everyone else.
This is a standard, you will remember, that the media most certainly does not use when “covering” Establishment-sponsored leftwing “protests”:
The media especially doesn’t use the standard of “one bad apple equals a rotten orchard” when it comes to politicians and other Establishment figures who are exposed for corruption (or worse–and imagine if guilt by association was assumed when it came to Jeffrey Epstein and all his powerful buddies!)
I haven’t heard a single word about race this whole week and I’ve been following the Convoy situation closely–well, as closely as an American can follow along on social media. Liberals are the only ones who ever bring race up. Everything must be about race all the time. They have to connect everything back to race. If they can’t find enough people in the crowd to convince people that it’s Racist Protest, then somehow they’ll find a way to argue that opposition to vax mandates is racist.
It is literally all they have at this point. Consider it proof of their desperation and total lack of any compelling counterarguments.
And it ain’t gonna work:
Here we have a young white liberal they/them (of course wearing a mask, which as Joe Rogan astutely pointed out, is the liberal version of the red MAGA hat) standing up for the corporate/political elite with a sign that says “Fuck Your White Nationalist Agenda.”
And then a dude standing directly next to him utterly humiliates him, saying, “I am not a white, this has nothing to do about white, this has nothing to do with truckers, this is about freedom for all Canadians. You can be brown, black, white, blue–whatever color you want to be, this is about freedom.”
This is a movement. It’s a big movement. And Trudeau and his corporate media shills look ridiculous trying to discredit it.
As for the “angry” part of the smear, well, does this sound like a bunch of angry people to you?
Sounds like one of the greatest protests ever to me.
The corporate media is always trying to brand right-wing protesters–or really just any non-leftwing protesters–as “angry.” I’ve heard it for years: ANGRY WHITE MEN ARE THE GREATEST THREAT OUT THERE!
Anyone who expresses opposition or dissatisfaction with Establishment policies and social dictates is branded as “angry.”
In reality, liberals are by far the angriest subset of the population. Studies cited by no less than the New York Times have shown this to be the case. It’s been shown time and time again–and not only that conservatives are happier on average than liberals, but that conservatives have way better mental health, too (although I guess you could probably infer this from the happiness gap).
This “conservatives are angry!” trope isn’t gonna fly anymore.
We’re not the ones that loot and burn down entire city blocks when we demonstrate. We’re the ones who wave the flag, and blast Twisted Sister and Mambo Number 5, and grill out.
Part of me wishes conservatives were even a fraction as angry and violent and dangerous as the corporate media says we are.
However, if in the process of destroying your enemy you destroy yourself, have you really even won?
Anyway, this is a wonderful scene up in Ottawa. God bless these truckers and all who have joined them. They are truly an inspiration to the whole world, and I wish them the best of luck.
Accept nothing less than freedom!
