I guess some very famous Canadian actors and singers would like to forget where they were born. They want to avoid the current “trucker controversy” at all costs.
They’re not taking sides. Unless I’m missing their statements, the silence is deafening.
What? Not interested?
They’re Americans now, with amnesia about their pasts?
Here is a partial list of Canadian stars I’m hearing nothing from:
William Shatner. Jim Carrey. Keanu Reeves. Dan Aykroyd. Ryan Reynolds. Mike Myers. Ryan Gosling. Donald Sutherland. Kiefer Sutherland. Rachel McAdams. Seth Rogan. Martin Short. Bruce Greenwood. Nathan Fillion. Matthew Perry. Justin Bieber. Hayden Christensen. Kim Cattrall. Neve Campbell. Avril Lavigne. Stana Katic. Pamela Anderson. Celine Dion. Michael Buble. A lot of hockey players.
Maybe I’m not reading the right tweets. Or maybe all these people were actually born in Antarctica and they’re living there again, and they don’t get news reports.
Nothing? No strong support for Trudeau? No words of encouragement for the truckers? Just total avoidance?
Meanwhile, little rich boy Trudeau is seizing bank accounts of people donating to the truckers…
Reuters: “Justin Trudeau on Monday activated rarely used emergency powers…Under the Emergencies Act, the government introduced measures intended to cut off protesters’ funding…”
“The financial measures bring crowdfunding platforms under terror-finance oversight, authorize Canadian banks to freeze accounts suspected of funding the blockades and suspend insurance on vehicles in the protests, Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland said.”
There it is. Trudeau removes all doubt. He declares the truckers terrorists, and will freeze bank accounts of people who are donating to “the terrorists.”
So I guess the truckers are throwing bombs and shooting people and kidnapping government officials and burning down hundreds of churches and schools.
They’re not peacefully protesting the vaccine passports, mandates, and other brutal and useless COVID restrictions laid on by the government of Canada.
Trudeau isn’t a little punk who sold himself long ago to betrayers of Canada. He’s a staunch defender of justice.
Sure. Obviously. Of course.
Actually, he is the terrorist. He just happens to be the prime minister of Canada, which gives him extraordinary cover in his role of insurrectionist.
If he were just a little whacko on a street corner telling passers-by the banks should freeze accounts of people who want FREEDOM, no one would pay any attention to him.
And now, if the banks of Canada had any balls, they would refuse the little rich boy’s order and stop colluding with him and his ilk. But no, the banks are terrorists and insurrectionists, too.
The majority of Canadians know the government’s COVID policies have been a fascist sham since the beginning. Now they’ve had enough. They’re rising up.
Trudeau, who supposedly represents the people of Canada, is trying to put them down.
He’s betting that his bank thefts and shock troops will win.
He’s betting he can sell the idea that the truckers started “the insurrection,” instead of indicting HIMSELF as the perpetrator.
Everything now depends on how many Canadians support the truckers as their real representatives.
I’ve stated this many times: no declared state of emergency, such as this latest farce, has the legal right to stand without an open examination from all sides of the FACTS and MERITS.
Trudeau is counting on using his wartime powers to quickly disperse the truckers and their convoy—after which he’ll lift the emergency.
Then things will return to normal, meaning he and other political leaders can re-impose however many COVID restrictions they believe they can get away with.
—Restrictions based on the fact that Trudeau, like Biden and Trump and Macron and Morrison and Johnson and other pols, know nothing about science or COVID or vaccines.
But that doesn’t stop them.
I don’t believe the Canadian freedom convoy is going away, even if cops and troops clear off all the trucks. Something has started, and it has momentum.
A fire has been lit. It’s ignited the hearts and minds of an extraordinary number of Canadians. Bending down and taking to a knee to the government and entering a state of amnesia about what has just come to pass isn’t possible.
Trucks and blockades aren’t the only available strategy.
People find answers when they’re up against the wall.
And they know who stayed silent when help and support were needed.
