Hey, remember that whole Freedom Convoy thing in Canada last year? Truck drivers in Canada and millions of their supporters around the world tried to defy Justin Trudeau’s mandatory COVID shots and a host of other lockdown nonsense. Trudeau really stuck it to the Freedom Convoy! Mission accomplished!
Trudeau must have won, right? Why else would the media just completely stop covering the Freedom Convoy in unison?
As it turns out, Justin Trudeau got his rear-end kicked, and ended up caving to every single concession that the Freedom Convoy made. No wonder the media stopped covering it!
A lot of people, especially here in America, have a misconception that the Freedom Convoy was a big waste of time. We were surprised to learn that this is simply not true. The Enemy of the People media loved the Trudeau crackdown on civil liberties. If they were praying people, which they’re not, the media would have prayed for Joe Biden to crush all of us pesky flyover MAGA Americans in similar fashion.
Remember how bad it got when the Freedom Convoy was going on? Trudeau sent cops in to crack the skulls of little old ladies open. A mounted police officer trampled an elderly indigenous woman with his horse. Trudeau froze the bank accounts of anyone who was identified participating in the Freedom Convoy. He even fired government employees who made so much as a $5 donation to help the families of the Freedom Convoy members. Those were $5 donations in Canadian dollars, not real currency.
The message from the media and Trudeau was clear: Don’t even try to protest vaccine mandates and lockdowns. Resistance is futile. If you rebel against the Trudeau dictatorship, you will be crushed, and your life will be destroyed, and you’ll be impoverished.
But here’s what happened in Canada within the first week of the protests starting.
While the Freedom Convoy was still happening, the protesters managed to oust the premier of Alberta, Canada. Two of the top five largest cities in Canada (Calgary and Edmonton) are in that province. Premier Jason Kenney was forced to resign in a hostile takeover, and all lockdowns in Alberta were immediately lifted. He was ultimately replaced by Pierre Poilievre, who embraced the Freedom Convoy and was a total anti-lockdown politician.
Trudeau then tried to invoke Canada’s Emergencies Act. This would have been the equivalent of imposing martial law across Canada. Within one week of evoking the Emergencies Act, both houses of the Canadian Parliament must sign off on it. The House of Commons voted to grant Trudeau martial law powers, so the military could hold parents at gunpoint while forcibly injecting their children with the clot-shot.
But Trudeau ran into a brick wall when the measure made it to the Senate. The Canadian Senate is a complete and total joke. They’re all in their 70s, none of them are actually elected (they’re appointees by the Prime Minister), and they spend most of their days just getting drunk and trafficking children. (Okay, we can’t prove the child trafficking point, but come on.)
The Canadian Senate, which is really just a nursing home for political cronies, decided that Trudeau had left them out of the dictatorship equation. The Senate demanded oversight and planning powers so that they could help formulate new mandates for everyone in Canada. They wanted daily press conferences for themselves, so that they could look like big heroes saving everyone from COVID. They wanted a standing committee that would require Trudeau’s cabinet members to report to them every day on the progress of government abuses by the Prime Minister.
Long story short, Trudeau withdrew the Emergencies Act measure just hours before the deadline, because he knew that the self-important blowhards in the Senate were not going to pass it in time anyway.
Trudeau’s Finance minister Crystia Freeland stated that the government was going to hunt down all the unvaccinated and forcibly inject them. That never happened. Within a week of the Freedom Convoy protests, Trudeau had caved to nearly every demand from the truckers. Within a month, every restriction in Canada was gone.
It’s now more difficult for an unvaccinated person to get into the United States (unless they’re an illegal alien) than it is in Canada. True story! The Freedom Convoy was a smashing, non-violent success. The media doesn’t want you to know this. They want you to think that the Freedom Convoy, the Yellow Vest protests in France, and January 6th were all failed, futile attempts to “overthrow democracy.” That’s not true. These protests were victories which revealed that leaders like Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden are actually just cowards, and deserve no station in any government job.
