OK, maybe I should have picked a blog post title based on this article (by James Bovard) title instead:
But I love freedom, and I hate traitorous scumbags like Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who has the gall to say that truckers protesting the illegal and dangerous vaccine mandates he supports are the problem. He criticized the protesters and said: “We won’t give in to those who fly racist flags.” Could there have been a confederate flag or an even nastier flag among the thousands of truckers in Ottowa (maybe) supporting freedom over the fascist mandates of their Prime Minister:
Here’s a great video from an Indian ambassador commenting on these issues:
This is the same Prime Minister Trudeau who considers himself a feminist but, some say he is: “a feminist that gropes women and [who offered] an apology that includes the words ‘if I’d known you wrote for a major newspaper I never would have been so forward.’“ But my dislike for him is purely political, over his cooperation with whatever globalists want to destroy western economies, cultures, and nations to replace them with global dictatorship that has many mandates and rules and great power for the elite but very little freedom for the masses.
As Bovard’s article at Mises.org notes: “The denigration of the Canadian trucker protest convoy exemplifies how freedom is now the biggest villain of the covid-19 pandemic. A Washington Post cartoonist portrayed the trucker convoy as “fascism” incarnate while another Post column [wrote about] the “toxic ‘Freedom Convoy.’” Anyone who resists any government command is apparently now a public enemy.
The trucker protest was spurred by the Canadian government’s sweeping covid vaccine mandate. Many truckers believe the risks of the vaccine outweigh the benefit and, more importantly, that they have the right to control their own bodies. Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau declared on Monday, “There is no place in our country for threats, violence or hatred.” Except for the hatred Trudeau whips up by denouncing vaccine mandate opponents as “racist” and “misogynistic.” And except for the “threats” and “violence” used by government enforcement agents to compel submission to any pandemic decree issued by Trudeau or other politicians.
Since the start of this pandemic, many people who boasted of their trust in “science and data” also believed that absolute power would keep them safe. According to their scorecard, anyone who objected to government commands was the equivalent of a heretic who must be condemned if not banished from every place except the cemetery. North of the border, Quebec epitomizes this intolerance with its new edict prohibiting unvaccinated individuals from shopping at Costco or Walmart.”
I hope freedom wins over fascism in Canada, and everywhere else.
