Fringe Minority, Eh? TK Partners News2Share take a balanced look at the Canadian protests
It weirds me out to watch how easy it has been for the American Left to rationalize their hypocrisy. While protesting racism was a justified cause, how many autonomous zones, nightly riots in Portland and other fringe events that had nothing to do with the BLM protests ignored by the media and the government. Imagine if anyone had suggested freezing the millions they raised, or doxxing people who donated to the cause. That would be an unimaginable dystopia. All it took was a few images and a smear campaign to give people the justification they needed to be okay with an authoritarian crackdown on people they deem "white supremacists." I think it makes the truckers more sympathetic and Trudeau look like a frightened member of the aristocracy, protecting the rich who seem to have little concern for those who bring them their stuff while they sit at home rage tweeting.
But the corporate media & Trudeau told me these are violent, dangerous, Nazi fanatics. Where are the burning businesses, flying projectiles at the beleaguered police, the masked roving mobs of the ‘Mostly Peaceful Protests that we witnessed during the summer of 2020? The hypocrisy & mendacity of this Globalist Regime stupefies me.
This is a far cry from a true national emergency by rational standards. What kind of leaders would react like Trudeau? Assholes would.
I remember laughing at the sight of all of these "journalists" covering the Black Lives Matter protests last year, who insisted that the protests were "largely peaceful", even though these statements were often made when there were fires appearing in the background. Nonetheless, there was obvious sympathy for the protests and it was deemed to be a just cause. So the subject matter of the protests became the story, as opposed to questions about whether it was being hijacked by extremist elements (eg. Antifa).
By contrast, the truckers' convoy doesn't fit into the comfortable narrative that our governments have continued to feed us, both about Covid, and the necessity of all of the restrictions that have been introduced in the name of "following the science". Furthermore, there is little sympathy accorded to the protesters, who in fact have been largely peaceful (there's been hardly any destruction of property anywhere). But somehow, they are dismissed as "racists", who are being funded by far-right fringe elements south of the border.
The double-standard in the coverage is very notable.
The media has “made them think their fear is a virtue.” Important point. By the time you get to my age, 77, you realize that safety is way, way over-rated. By all that’s right and holy, people my age should be the most dangerous people in America.
The restrictions in Canada have been far worse than here in the States. Vaccine Passports to grocery shop, pick up prescriptions, eat at restaurants, parks (and even dog parks) closed with 8pm curfews, talk of No-Vax fines and shot mandates for children -- and then after the carbon taxes are thrown at the transport companies, they stood to lose drivers with all these time consuming stops for tests and proof of inoculations...Trucking is a very solitary profession! Independent people desire independent choices. It appears that this is not a "fringe minority" at all.
I haven't seen much media coverage of the huge impact the Canadian freedom convoy has had on the rest of the world. Mini freedom convoys are popping up everywhere.
I think the US caravans or convoys are starting later.
Chairman Trudeau did it again today
Went off on a Conservative Canadian Party member who voiced support for the truckers protest against mandates and government overreach.
“ This is the right wing support of Nazis, Confederates, White Supremacy, racism, misogyny”
The member who commented was a Jewish woman.I’d venture to guess she has a far greater understanding of Nazism, White Supremacy and government medical overreach, forced medical experimentation, racism and misogyny than Chairman Comrade Fuhrer Trudeau.
Sorry, but I think Trudeau is an entitled moron and acting like a fascist. He is so out of touch with those he supposedly represents. First, let's look at data and do the math, shall we? Most healthy adults over the age of 70 with no co-morbidities survive COVID and require no hospitalisation - particularly with the Omicron variant. Second, there are excellent therapeutics at hand which help mitigate severe outcomes. Mandates for a vaccine which has not proven to be effective regarding tenor nor transmission? Are you joking?? And Omicron is much less virulent than previous variants. Explain the "science" to me please...
The convoy has been brutally effective at signalling and spurring provincial premiers to scrap mandates and covidiocy. They've given Canadians a focal point to apply their energies and activism. Whereas Fidel Jr is simply in way over his head without the acting chops to pull it off.
Stick a fork in him, he's done.
I think the US convoy will galvanize the same reaction and support in the US as it wends its way cross country.
A major reset of the world power balance continues to play out in real time.
Could we get a piece like this on the international ones? Not a peep about any of it on cable news here
Video's like these should be crossposted to Rumble or some site other than You Tube.
Great work! It's really shocking to me how rare the basic cookie-cutter formula of 'go to a place and listen to people' reporting has become, it's so desperately needed.
From the start, the big legacy Canadian media oligopoly just seemed to instantaneously agree at once that the truckers were racist chuds who want to do Nazi Fascism for incomprehensible reasons, and have saved themselves the trouble of actually talking to any of them. They've simply pre-decided: "The protestors are ignorant because they disagree with the benevolent experts. The experts aren't wrong, so disagreement must be wrong. And since we derive our morality from scientific truth, you can't be factually wrong without also being morally wrong. So they must have corrupt, nefarious motives - maybe they're selfish superspreaders, or racists, funded by big oil, and Putin's Russia, and extremist Americans. Oh no, we don't want to platform evil - that's how we got Trump! Yes, our readers might be too stupid to properly prejudge that the protestors are evil, like we just wisely did. So, let's strongly denounce these dangerous truckers with every evil-adjacent descriptor in our word gun. They probably deserve it."
We've got several friends who drove up to Ottawa to join the protests. They're sweet people, motivated by heartbreak for the impact these measures have had on their kids, and a deep resentment of all the ways covid-centric governing is hostile to community, privacy, faith, movement, civil liberties, and now even freedom of speech itself. How they're being characterized by their government and media has nothing to do with reality! Watching these intertwined elite groups collude to not only put their thumb on the scale, but openly climb on the scale and do the Mario 64 ground pound... it's just flabbergasting. i've never seen the seams on the propaganda so clearly, it's way way way worse than anything i experienced living in the US after 9/11 even. And somehow it just keeps getting worse! Insane. i've been running out of novel ways to say insane lately
Someone PLEASE tell the anti-vaxxers that Covid is not the measles or chicken pox. The vaccines and boosters make Covid a toothless dog. It can still bite you (you can still test positive) but it won't hurt you (or in the case of Covid, put you in the hospital and/or kill you).
Did anybody see the Ottawa cops tear a 4’10” elderly great grandfather from his car, handcuffing him as he fell to the icy ground? He was arrested for committing the grievous crime of giving a solidarity honk as he drove his tiny heap of crap car past the truckers. This dangerous , seditious traitor spent his life working uncomplainingly as a janitor.
