Regarding the Canadian Freedom Truckers convoy, there can no longer be any question as to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s reaction to the truckers. Instead of choosing his imperial police régime of old-style police dogs and firehoses, Trudeau and his elites have chosen Bull Connor’s old-school, Birmingham, Alabama ruffian police state.
What were Bull Connor’s tactics?
“Theophilus Eugene “Bull” Connor is most associated with the civil rights demonstrations in Birmingham where to many the very public role of Connor and what took place in Birmingham seemed to epitomise the racial problems that existed in the South.”
“Connor was born in Selma, Alabama, on July 11th, 1897. Alabama was a hard-core Confederate state which was still coming to terms with the end of the American Civil War and the emancipation of the slaves. The KKK was strong in the state and the ‘Jim Crow’ laws were rigidly enforced. Lynching was a common way of keeping the African-American community ‘in their place’ and those responsible invariably simply got away with their crime.”
Today’s new oppressors
The new oppressors of today – all done for “your own good,” of course – have instead just put a smiley face on their virtual dogs of media disdain by conducting quiet, out of sight backroom doxing through the illegal confiscation of gasoline cans and having quietly stolen money collected to support the truckers from GoFundMe (which GFM would direct to a charity of their choice, can you say “BLM related?”).
Meanwhile, the talking heads in the fake news solemnly intoned that the law is being broken – the same law that had zero bearing to them as Antifa thugs violently burned millions of dollars of mom-and-pop shops to the ground, shot and killed more than one in the Seattle “summer of love”, and literally burned books in Portland.
What is happening in Canada is certainly not your grandfather’s Birmingham, Alabama from the 1960s. Rather, today’s version of oppression is, as CS Lewis wrote, one where “The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid “dens of crime” that Dickens loved to paint. It is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices.”
Trudeau and Premier Ford lack understanding
Neither Trudeau nor Premier Ford have a clue that in Western tradition our rights are not granted by the state, but are intrinsic to us, particularly as given by God.
Even the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which enshrines the rights and freedoms of all human beings, and which was adopted by all nations as Resolution 217 on Dec. 10, 1948 at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, France, recognized as much.
Trudeau and Ford have disdain for the rights of the truckers, who, in turn, represent the poor, unwashed masses in flyover country, as noted in this centuries old phrase: Honni soit qui mal y pense le truckers (shame on anyone who thinks evil of the truckers).
Crocodile tears shed for damage to economies
Presently on both sides of the border, feckless leaders like incompetent Michigan Gov. Whitmer and ridiculous Ontario Premier Ford are crying crocodile tears about the damage to their economies. Really and truly?
What seems unknown to Whitmer and Ford is that those protesting are the very “worker bees” who are most impacted by the shutdowns, which just shows the magnitude of the protest and the commitment of the protesters.
It seems fitting to ask Whitmer, Ford and other leaders where they were when the shutdowns started, which they themselves created, and which here in the U.S. caused suicides, ruined careers, and destroyed educations and children’s psychological stability, perhaps forever.
There were no worries from the leaders then! The cost amounted to untold billions, even trillion of dollars, or as Hillary might say about human lives when it comes to the actual number of dollars lost, “What does it matter!?”
A break in Trudeau’s dam?
When it comes to Canada’s modern day Spartacus revolt, Brian Peckford, the last living author of the law of the land in Canada, the Canadian Charter of Freedoms and Rights, with which PM Trudeau’s father, Pierre, was also intimately involved, explicitly stated just this month that the government is in violation with its written contract with the people. Read that again. An exaggeration, perhaps? Then listen to Peckford yourself here and make your own judgement.
A desertion of the ship has already been noted above, and the Trudeau’s piratical ship of WEF-directed lackeys has sprung a serious leak and is starting its final plunge to the bottom, weighted down with a myriad trucks.
As learned from the Nuremberg Trials, “I was just following orders” doesn’t wash as a defense. The police today know it. The lesson of Nuremberg has not been totally lost.
As we also know from the later repressive regime of East Germany’s Erich Honecker (actual last leader was Egon Krenz), when you lose your police muscle, it is game over.
Read for yourself the story where it all came to an end in Leipzig here, when on Oct 9, 1989, 70,000 people cried “Wir sind das Volk” (We are the people)” and “No violence” (apparently no Antifa agent provocateurs were in attendance that day with fake Confederate flags!), but – importantly – the soldiers refused to fire on the crowd, to do the dirty work of the politicians. The result? The Berlin Wall came down.
Fight not yet over
According to my good friend Blaise Vanne, who has dual citizenship in this country and in Canada, and who is keeping a close watch on the situation up in Canada, Canada is not quite there yet. The Mandate Wall is still up.
Truth is: With every threat, with every arrest, with every truck driver who loses his truck due to confiscation, and for every police and RCMP Mountie that defects to the moral side, the illegitimate state — frantically defended by today’s version of Pravda and Izvestia, aka CNN and MSNBC — loses ground.
The people of Canada were finally awakened by the honking of the truckers, recognizing lying when they heard it.
Might the elite be advised to keep their helicopters warmed up, for we have seen before what happens when the leaders do not have the consent of the people, the human terrain.
