Canada’s working class has finally rebelled, and they are succeeding

Canada’s working class has finally rebelled, and they are succeeding. By Tucker Carlson.

When Democratic politicians across this country all of a sudden start to pull back their mask mandates, they did it virtually overnight and of course they did it in unison, we naturally assumed that new polling had to be behind it.

Someone at the DNC must have seen terrifying public opinion numbers and decided to abandon “Project Quarantine” before the midterm elections. That made sense to us. We explained that theory on the show last night. We still think it’s probably pretty true, but it’s also clear as of tonight that there was another explanation for this. Democrats in this country are looking north to their friends in the ruling party of Canada and what they see there scares them.

Canada’s working class has finally rebelled after years of relentless abuse. Truck drivers are threatening to topple Justin Trudeau’s creepy little government with their big rigs, and they may succeed, actually. The protests against Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandates have been far more effective than anyone in charge imagined.

This is ‘the single most successful human rights protest in a generation’

“We want freedom,” the truckers are saying,” freedom from mandates.” It’s a very straightforward ask, but so far the truckers don’t have that freedom and so their blockade continues. …

It’s hard to overstate the historical significance of what we’re watching right here. The Canadian trucker convoy is the single most successful human rights protest in a generation. If nothing else, it has been a very useful reminder to our entitled ruling class. The working-class men can be pushed, but only so far. When they push back, it hurts.

It turns out that truck drivers are more important to a country’s future than, say, diversity consultants or even MSNBC contributors. Who knew?

The White House has no interest in knowing. According to the Associated Press, tonight, the Biden administration is, “urging the Trudeau government” to “use its federal powers to stop this protest” to end the truckers’ protest. In other words, crush them by force. …

There is an obvious way to fix this problem. Manuel Moroun, who is the owner of the Ambassador Bridge into Michigan, just spelled it out for Justin Trudeau, who is not terribly bright. End the vaccine mandates and the bridge reopens. It’s not hard, but Justin Trudeau won’t, and he’s decided he doesn’t have to because the truckers, as he’s explained, have no legitimate complaint. They’re racists, so we’re not required to listen to them.

Here was Trudeau in the Canadian Parliament on Monday:

JUSTIN TRUDEAU: “The people of Ottawa don’t deserve to be harassed in their own neighborhoods. They don’t deserve to be confronted with the inherent violence of a swastika flying on a street corner or a Confederate flag, or the insults and jeers just because they’re wearing a mask. That’s not who Canada…who Canadians are.”

Oh, so they’re not even really Canadians? They’re Nazis. So you don’t have to hear anything they say. They don’t even belong here. Maybe we’ll intern them or expel them. Trudeau state broadcasters have been repeating these lies over and over and over again for maximum effect. Pravda parroting Brezhnev. That’s what they do. What’s striking, however, is that the media in our country claim to be independent, but they’ve been doing the very same thing.  …

 

Here’s that much referenced Nazi flag. It also say “F*ck Trudeau”. In a protest about authortiarian government, it’s a very safe bet that the flag holder was saying that Trudeau was behaving like a Nazi.

 

Now they’re using these smears because typically they work. Just dismiss these people. Don’t listen to them. They didn’t go to college, but what Justin Trudeau apparently didn’t count on is that a handful of independent journalists are committing journalism inside Canada and a free press works. …

Instead of repeating state-mandated talking points, like their journalists do in the morons and our press corps do, these independent reporters have been broadcasting hours-long interviews with the truckers themselves in their cabs, totally unfiltered so you can decide what you think. You can actually make your own judgment about reality.

So you watch these streams for just a few minutes, and you realize that these truckers, whatever their faults may be, are far less odious and much harder-working than the journalists and the politicians who call them Nazis.

Here’s one 24-year-old protester who saved up and bought his own truck. He’s an owner-operator now. He’s losing hundreds of dollars every day because he’s no longer working, but he says it’s worth it because he’s more concerned about human rights than about his own paycheck. You decide.

INTERVIEWEE:  I agree with freedom of choice, so people should be..If you want to wear a diaper over your face, say, go ahead, you know. I mean, you can wear a face diaper if you want, but why should I? Because of your fear, I got to wear that garbage on my face, you know? Doing that for… Two years. They said two weeks, but it’s turned into two years. So, enough is enough.

Yeah, the voice of the working man there. Now, we know he’s a Nazi? Because he used the word “freedom.” …

Justin Trudeau is attacking human rights and attacking humans, and that ultimately is bound to provoke a backlash, and it is. … When you go too far as Ceausescu learned, people turn against you. …

It’s so deeply revealing. Scratch a liberal and you’ll find a fascist. Today on Twitter, an Obama DHS official called Juliette Kayyem called for violence against the truckers. “Slash their tires,” she demanded, but don’t stop there. “Cancel their insurance, suspend their driver’s licenses, prohibit any future regulatory certification for truckers, etc. Have we learned nothing? Fellow members of the ruling class? These things fester when there are no consequences.” Crush them before they get big ideas.
