I am 100% pureblooded American. I eat hamburgers, shoot guns, play Sloto Cash, and love me some freedom- and I never thought that I would live to see the day when I would be praising Canadians. I got nothing against Canada, personally. It’s just, you know… Canada, Canadian Freedom Convoy.
What I refer to is the Canadian Freedom Convoy. Canadian Freedom Convoy hasn’t been talked about all that much. If you only pay attention to mainstream media, you might not have heard of Canadian Freedom Convoy at all. Every media organization that holds the government’s water (because they’re all a bunch of circle-jerking swamp things) has turned a blind eye to it or merely casually mentioned it as if it were some small, irrelevant thing.
It is neither small nor irrelevant, despite Prime Minister Justin Trudeau calling the participants a “small fringe minority”.
This article is me contributing my part to help get the word out, however small it may be. Nobody may end up reading this. I could be writing about my favorite ducks. But I’m not. Because this matters. It should matter to you, it should matter to me, and to anyone who wants to live in a free society.
Now, what is the “Freedom Convoy”?
I promise that not every major news story in the past couple of years ties into Covid. Jeffery Epstein, for instance. This one does, however. You know the saying, “Never let a good crisis go to waste”? That’s been every politician’s motto since 2019 regarding this damn virus.
A virus more virulent, but ultimately less deadly, than the flu, with Omicron being the most virulent and least deadly of them all (I saw one report claim that it’s 100 times less lethal than the delta variant).
Nevertheless, the western world has been spiraling into chaos over it regardless. Former Vice President Joe Biden tried to implement a vaccine mandate onto businesses that had to be struck down by the supreme court. Australia has literal camps for the infected. Israel is already beginning to distribute a fourth dose of the vaccine, and already has a Green Pass, which is required for… well, participating in huge portions of daily life, like studying in University.
Canada has already had a plethora of insane laws implemented. Until January 17th, residents of Quebec were not allowed to leave their homes from 10 pm to 5 am (because I guess viruses don’t spread at night). Indoor gatherings in Ontario were restricted to 5 people, outdoors: 10. Because screw everyone with four kids, I guess. Meanwhile, a Canadian Premier (sort of like a congressman in America) announced that the unvaccinated would be fined. Do you realize how crazy that is? Imagine being actively fined, taxed, persecuted for simply existing as you were born!
The straw that broke the camel’s back, however, was a new mandate insisting that all truck drivers had to be vaccinated and present paperwork to get across the border. The truck drivers didn’t like this and protested. The government responded by saying that they’ll be implementing this new law across province borders as well (provinces are sort of like states in the US. Ah, Canadians with their silly words.).
The truckers have united now and said, “NO.”
The Freedom Convoy
In response to the government’s tyrannical actions, the Canadian truckers have untied to form one massive convoy of trucks to protest the policy. The numbers vary depending on who you ask, but estimates go from 50 to 100 thousand trucks have joined in and jammed the highways into Canada’s capital, Ottawa, and have gridlocked the streets of the city. They’re parked now, blaring their horns and making so much noise that the government can’t shut their ears to them.
Meanwhile, you can find videos of hundreds and hundreds of people lining the highways, bearing Canadian flags, singing the anthem, and marching in front of parliament in solidarity with the Truckers. The people have had enough, and they are united in their message, “These laws have got to go, or Trudeau does, but preferably both!”
The reaction to the Freedom Convoy has been wide and varied. Trudeau initially dismissed it and called both a “small fringe minority” after calling the unvaccinated (and everyone who doesn’t want to live under tyranny) “racists” and “misogynists”. Uh, maybe Trudeau shouldn’t be throwing around the term “racist” so casually because there are a few black-faced skeletons in his closet, to put it mildly.
The media at large turned a blind eye to the whole thing initially until it grew so big that, reluctantly, they eventually acknowledged it. Then they immediately declared that it was the next “January 6th”, which was basically 9/11, and by the associative property… they equated truck drivers honking their horns together with Islamic terrorism that resulted in the deaths of over 3000 people.
But apparently, it wasn’t so small and fringe after all because recent reports claim that Trudeau has apparently fled to an undisclosed location. The coward. Oh, and that he’s got Covid now, which is why he can’t come out and address the protesters directly. Riiiighht. Sure. Meanwhile, he’s tweeting about how everyone still should do their civic duty and get vaccinated- even though he’s living proof about the efficacy of the vaccine.
The Lies and Obfuscation
Now, do not let yourself be deceived. This isn’t about being against vaccines. Some of the reports claim that something like 70 – 80 percent of the truck drivers involved are already vaccinated. That is the big twist that the establishment and the left like to throw at anyone who has anything negative to say about this vaccine or the covid mandates- that we’re akin to people who believe that vaccines contain baby fetuses and aids. Although Project Veritas dug up some interesting information on that end…
Regardless, that’s not the point. The point is freedom. The point is individual responsibility and accountability. The government should not have the power to decide what is in the best interest of my personal health. I have taken the vaccine! I’m not anti-vax, and I bet 99% of the people on my side of the aisle aren’t either.
We simply believe that you have the right to make bad decisions. Gosh, what an idea! Freedom! In a free society, you can get fat, watch porn, and blow your life’s savings on NFTs. Why? Because you want to, and that’s your right.
I recently rewatched the film Demolition Man, and the character of Edgar Friendly says it best, “See, according to [Dear Leader’s] plan, I’m the enemy. Cause I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who wants to sit in a greasy spoon and think, “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol. I want to eat bacon, butter, and buckets of cheese, okay? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in a non-smoking section. I wanna run through the streets naked with green Jello all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to. Okay, pal?”
Is it logical? No. Is it the safest way to live your life? No. However, will you be happy? Well… that would be up to you, wouldn’t it? Which is the whole gosh-darned point.
In the establishment’s utopia, we peasants don’t get a say in anything. We’ll get the shot, we’ll stay safely in our homes, we’ll wear the face masks, and we’ll ask “how high” when they tell us to jump- even if it’s off a cliff.
The World Economic Forum dreams of a world where nobody owns anything, nobody eats meat, and we all live in pods and eat bugs. Mark Zuckerberg wants you to live your entire life digitally in a fake reality controlled entirely, of course, by Facebook. Justin Trudeau, Joe Biden, and every stinkin’ government on the planet that has gone along with it all want to shut up and obey, even if it goes against all rhyme or reason.
It doesn’t matter if Covid isn’t all that dangerous, if you’re not in a vulnerable demographic, or if you’re willing to take the risk regardless.
This isn’t about your health when New York offers free burgers in exchange for getting Vaccinated when America has an obesity epidemic, and the obese is one of the vulnerable demographics! This isn’t about health when curfews lock people in their homes! When gyms are shut down in the name of “health”! This isn’t about health when people are locked away in camps or restricted from seeing the birth of their children or attending their relative’s funeral!
It’s about taking as much power and control as their grubby little hands can take – power that should never have been put within their reach in the first place, and God bless the Canadians for taking a stand against it and Canadian Freedom Convoy!
