The world establishment press has shed metric tons of ink, trying to paint the convoy “freedom convoy” like a pack of racists holding back progress.

In fact, it seems that most of the protesters and supporters are ordinary Canadians who have finally reached a tipping point with vaccine mandates and other attempts to condition their livelihoods with “how high?” every time Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says “jump”.

The phenomenon seems to attract.

As I write this, U.S. governments are fighting to lift the authoritarian restrictions they have imposed the last two years on behalf of COVID-19.

Why? Because they want to do the right things, not forced to admit they did the wrong things.

They are foolishly afraid of the prospect of retreating when a bunch of truckers and supporters kill the same highways and streets that the political class emptied under a decree in 2020, and have since taken on “extraordinary” powers.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security warned that a U.S. imitation protest could unfold in time to inconvenience crowds of the Super Cup in Los Angeles before traveling across the country to steal attention (such as it is likely to be) in President Joe Biden’s first action Appeal on the state of the Union. Panic and retreat.

Abroad, the French and Belgian regimes use batons and tear gas in the pitiful hope of brazenly resisting the slave uprising when New Zealand’s Queen Jacinta whines about “foreign” influence in a similar uprising against her iron rule.

Trudeau continues to direct the late Romanian Nicolae Ceausescu, citing the “extraordinary powers” of wartime to preserve his de facto dictatorship – hopefully with less fatalities for both him and his disgusting victims.

The police statistic of COVID-19 looks like that in some places it is in defense, in others it is completely retreating and everywhere is on the verge of complete collapse.

Why? Because some truckers in Canada finally said “no more” and decided to do it.

No Boris Yeltsin or anonymous Chinese demonstrator represents an iconic figure on top or in front of a tank. This is probably for the better. Nowadays, it is too easy to discredit a good deed by going through the old tweets of some supposedly “representative” ones.

In retrospect, the participants of the “column of freedom” will be together grateful to several grateful nations.

Sound when you love freedom.
