You have to hand it to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He finally found a way to stop people from comparing him to Fidel Castro. Now, they’re comparing him to Benito Mussolini.

Trudeau, who has proven himself to be a genuinely terrible leader, has slandered the peaceful trucker protesters, threatened them and had them arrested rather than simply agreeing to meet with them and listening. Here’s a recap of how his arrogance, intransigence and incompetence have led to the point where he’s not only created this crisis in Canada but inspired revolts around the world.

Now, Trudeau has “gone nuclear” as many put it by invoking the seldom-used Emergencies Act, which is basically the Canadian version of martial law. Again, against peaceful protesters who are simply demanding that the government stop violating their rights and respect their freedom.

In a bizarre press conference, Trudeau described the move as “reasonable” and “proportionate,” as he and his deputy prime minister ominously described how truckers who protest the government may be subject to fines, imprisonment without due process, losing their insurance and more. They’re also expanding terrorist financing laws to allow for accounts to be frozen and seized without court order, including for people who merely support or raise funds to help the protesters.

This is the type of extreme measure that’s meant to be invoked only when a situation “seriously endangers the lives, health or safety of Canadians and is of such proportions or nature as to exceed the capacity or authority of a province to deal with it.” That sounds more like when BLM and Antifa supporters were rioting, looting, setting fires and destroying property. Trudeau’s response to that was to take a knee with them.

While some civil rights groups that are unworthy of the name approved Trudeau’s dictatorial move, calling it "responsible" and "a good strategy," others condemned it and called it a slippery slope into government overreach. News flash, guys: declaring martial law against peaceful freedom protesters isn’t a “slippery slope into government overreach.” It’s a deep dive into the belly of the authoritarian beast.

Many of the truckers say they refuse to be intimidated and will not give up. Although "giving up" might be the best strategy. I would not be surprised if their next move would be to give him what he wants: instead of blocking the streets, they could take their trucks home...and keep them there. Keep them there until their disgraceful PM realizes that truckers are a lot more important to society than male models with Stalin-sized egos. They might let him and all the leftist elitists around him find out how much power they really have when nobody’s delivering their food or heating oil or hair gel to them.

    A cautionary article of what could happen here! We have taken our freedoms for granted and allowed erosion of rights and injustices for too long!

    It can happen here unless we wake up!
