Truckers vs. Tyrants

As a caravan of Canadian truckers, composed of thousands and stretching 45 miles, made its way to the Canadian capital of Ottawa in protest of leftist tyranny, the propagandist media moved swiftly to downplay the size and scope of it all. A USA Today “fact checker” wrote: “Canada truck convoy not an official Guinness World record.”

The current Guinness record for the longest “truck parade” is 480 vehicles stretching across 4.6 miles. The 45-mile-long Canadian freedom caravan would easily have beaten the current Guinness record by a factor of 10 had protest organizers applied to beat the record. But setting a Guinness record was not at the top of the freedom truckers’ agenda. Instead, the brave truckers were going to Ottawa to protest against tyranny and its Canadian poster child, Justin Trudeau.

So while USA Today’s “fact check” was technically true, it was nothing more than a desperate, pedantic effort to dismiss the overwhelming size and significance of the freedom caravan. 

Other propagandists simply lied.A Washington Post writer claimed the caravan was made up of “hundreds of trucks and personal vehicles.” The same Post propagandist described the protestors as a “fringe group” and “unfortunate minority.” Prime Minister-in-hiding Justin Trudeau repeated the totalitarian talking point, condemning the protestors as a “small fringe minority.” 

Trudeau and the media know the protestors aren’t a “fringe minority.” On the contrary, these tyrants know it is they who are the fringe minority. But they also understand that what power they have is derived exclusively from a fearful and obedient patriotic majority; a majority, which accepts the tyrants’ big lie that they are a powerless and outnumbered minority.

As I said on my latest podcast, those of us standing against tyranny are like a 6-foot-2, 185-pound boxer. Before we’ve even seen our opponent, the media—acting as our tyrannical opponent’s surrogates—tell us that we’re about to get into the ring with a 6-foot-6, 250-pound monster, who is going to annihilate us. It’s a lie intended thoroughly to dispirit us by sowing doubt, insecurity, and fear in our minds in the hope that we will give up even before we get in the ring.

But if we climb into the ring and face our opponent, we find ourselves staring down at a 4-foot-11 coward, who has neither the strength nor stomach to beat us. That’s exactly what the brave Canadian truckers discovered when they climbed into the ring and the mighty Justin Trudeau fled the scene, going into Canada’s witness protection program.

The Canadian protestors have brought the Left’s “fringe minority” narrative crashing to the ground. Since the tyrants can’t ignore the movement, they are now engaged in an effort to smear both the movement and the protestors themselves. The Left is trying to “J-6” the Canadian protestors.

The same lies and mischaracterizations used to attack the MAGA movement and Trump are now being used to attack the Canadians. The Washington Post called the Canadian freedom convoy “toxic.” Trudeau has accused the protestors of representing “anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, anti-black racism, homophobia, and transphobia”—none of which is true.

Despite the peaceful nature of the Canadian protests and complete absence of violence in Ottawa, the media continues to claim the movement is “extreme” and “dangerous.” An image of one lone and likely left-wing activist provocateur carrying a crisp, newly purchased Confederate flag, for example, was justification enough for the media to denounce the entire movement as racist. Never mind the fact that the crowd of truckers surrounding the masked Confederate can be heard shaming him and telling him to leave.

The strategy of the intolerant Left, of course, is this: If you can’t prevent a movement, just smear it. The objective of this intentional mischaracterization is obvious—to distract or divert attention away from the justified and truthful objections to vaccine mandates and tyranny.

Like the Democrats in America, Trudeau and the Canadian ruling class are likely already scheming to use the protests in Ottawa as a means to punish and discourage any future protests against tyranny in Canada. 

How closely Trudeau will follow the Democratic Party’s J6 playbook is unknown, but we do know the courage of the 50,000 Canadian truckers has inspired a convoy of American truckers to follow suit. Soon, a U.S. convoy would travel from California to Washington, D.C. to protest our own tyrants and their unconstitutional mandates.

I am hopeful the end is near for our tyrannical abusers—both in the United States and Canada. I am certain, freedom and the patriotic majority will be victorious if we just step inside the ring. After all, the only power the tyrant has is the power we grant him when we comply. When our compliance ends, so too does the “power” of the ruling minority.
