Canadian government officials who have grown more and more authoritarian with their COVID mandates seem to be panicking and hitting the Emergency Tyrant Button over the Truckers’ Freedom Convoy.

It doesn’t seem to be working, though, as workers around the world have had enough of destructive, ironfisted, rights-crushing lockdowns imposed under the guise of “stopping the spread” of COVID (something that a new study by a Johns Hopkins University researcher found they failed to do.) The Canadian truckers are inspiring similar working class revolts worldwide.

It’s prompted conservatives to note that there is finally a real, grassroots movement for “workers of the world to unite and throw off their shackles,” and socialists are terrified of it.

The truckers have been talked down to, slandered and targeted with “multiple investigations;” they’ve been called violent, Russian agents, QAnon members, racists and homophobes; and they've been ordered to go home. They tried to tow them away, but the tow truck drivers refused. They considered calling in the Army, but the Army said, “Not our fight.”

Some of the counter-protesters have reportedly tried false flag operations to discredit the truckers, and one attempted a hoax so laughable that it made Jussie Smollett look competent.

Now, they’re being threatened with arrest for peacefully assembling to protest the government. Short of shooting them or throwing them in prison for a year or so while they decide what to charge them with, that’s pretty much the entire leftwing government playbook for dealing with dissent by working people.

By the way, here’s some of the “violent” criminal behavior the left is so worked up about: it includes dancing to “We Are Family,” setting up bouncy houses for kids and holding outdoor church services. I thought liberals wanted all church services to be held outdoors in Canada in February.

I wonder if any of the elitists who are so angry at these truckers realize how their very privileged lives would quickly devolve if the truckers did all decide to just go home and stay there, instead of delivering goods to the city dwellers who look down on them.

What The Canadian Truckers Stand For:

For those accusing the Canadian Truckers of being white supremacists, QAnon insurrectionists or the whole litany of tired leftist clichés, here’s their statement about what they stand for, direct from their new fundraising page at GiveSendGo. I warn you, this is some pretty scary revolutionary rhetoric:

"We are a peaceful country that has helped protect nations across the globe from tyrannical governments who oppressed their people, and now it seems it is happening here...

We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government, and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people. Small businesses are being destroyed, homes are being destroyed and people are being mistreated and denied fundamental necessities to survive. It's our duty as Canadians to put an end to (these) mandates. It is imperative that this happens because if we don't our country will no longer be the country we have come to love. We are doing this for our future Generations and to regain our lives back."

Imagine the effrontery of those peasants, wanting their lives back! Reverses Itself:

After being hit with a storm of outrage and threats of fraud investigations by Sen. Ted Cruz and a couple of red state Governors and Attorneys General, reversed itself and decided that donors to the Canadian Truckers’ Convoy will get automatic refunds. The site won’t require them to apply for a refund or send the money to some other charity of the site’s choosing. So for those keeping score, the only act of violence on the part of the truckers is that they helped GoFundMe’s executives shoot themselves in the foot.

(Also, an Ottawa city council member deleted his tweet about how he was working on a plan to “legally” confiscate their donations. I’m sure he’s had lots of experience in coming up with ways to legally confiscate other people’s money.)

I might be more sympathetic to GoFundMe’s claims about violations of its Terms of Service if the same site didn’t have a history of providing fundraising for various leftist criminals and violent protesters. Here’s a walk down memory lane by way of the prison yard, to revisit some of the fine upstanding leftists that GoFundMe has helped to support.

(Also worth reminding you: Kamala Harris and her staff endorsed and contributed to a fund to bail out Minneapolis rioters who got out of jail and went right back to doing it again.)

To prove that some businesses are actually more interested in fulfilling their mission to serve customers than in kowtowing to leftists, the competing fundraising site GiveSendGo accepted a fundraiser for the Canadian truckers. As of this writing on Monday morning, it had already received over $4.3 million in donations.

    Thank you for all that you do, I don’t watch the news, so your email is my news. I’ve heard that one state has directed the teachers in the schools to submit a whole year of their daily teacher plans to be examined and accepted by the parents. Is this true? I don’t think those who demand that realize how impossible that will be. The Country has a great shortage of teachers, and if the states really demand this, teachers will leave teaching in droves. I’m 73, but for the last 12 years I’ve worked as a substitute teacher in my local elementary school, my daughter and grand daughter are teachers, I know what will happen, not because they don’t want the parents to know what they are teaching daily, but because things happen and lesson plans change, not including the enormous job it would take to even do it. Then of course everyone having a different opinion. It just blows my mind that these poorly paid teachers would be expected to add this to their overwhelming job.

    I totally agree with your statement, Mike, about these liberals spouting that these truckers should just comply to, mainly, their demands.
    This is an old saying (some say it’s a Bible verse but it’s not)…
    There are none so blind as those who cannot see.
    My prayer is that the Lord will open their eyes before it’s too late to see the Truth.

    I have never donated a nickel for anything on any website and never will. Too many ways for someone to walk away with money intended for someone else. There are other ways that if you are going to get involved to do it so whatever you send actually gets to the right place at 100%, without a “middle man” taking a cut because they are running the show!

    Thank you for addressing the issues of today. I find that I trust your input not just because you are a Christian and a leader, but because you adhere to the truth. And you seem to have your fingers on the pulse of the White House. Please continue to keep us informed of what is really happening in our great country. Thanks, again.

    I read that the money going through GiveSendGo was frozen by the government. Not sure if it was Canadian govt. or US govt.

    threats and public scrutiny gets the job done. Even Gofundme, is finding out the majority is NOT who they think we are. Their actions coudl generate a lawsuit or two. Speaking of violating rules? Do they have legal right to say that a fund cannot go where it is designated? Terms of service?

    Dear Mike: Of one of the many outrages in this whole deal is that a nonprofit thinks it can redirect charitable contributions as it sees fit. That ought to be against the law, period. I am sure somebody in the Congress will move to rectify that. I hope you will keep up on such efforts and inform us on the progress of such an effort. Even liberals will support this. They might find themselves on the unpopular side of the politically correct one day too.

    What hypocritical governments we have. BLM comes in and destroys towns and occupied Seattle for weeks and still is demonstrating in Portland but they won't call in the police to control these thugs. Peaceful protestors on both sides of the borders have been harassed, made fun of, etc and denied their rights. But BLM can run rough shod over every one, block our interstates and nothing is done to get them off the roads. But yet they are going to arrest the truckers in Ottawa for blocking the ambassador bridge in a peaceful protest to get their rights back from a draconian socialist dictator? Oh please. I sure hope they stand their grounds and succeed. Just like the upcoming revolt in the US that is coming. Just wait. People are tired of the lies coming out of DC - from Biden, Harris, Fauci, and all the way on down the ladder. These socialists have got to be booted out of office so we can regain our America back or it's all over. I for one am tired of praising BLM for their so called good works for blacks. Most blacks I know condemn them also. They are out for themselves and how they can stuff their pockets in the name of violence and fear. Another Soros back organization to tear America down. Best be ware or there will be a second civil war to regain our country back from these socialists. Another thing we need to do is put into effect term limits for Congress - both the House and the Senate. These aging socialist politicians are doing our country no good as well evidenced along with our senile President. Evil Soros is behind our southern borders being flooded with illegal immigrants but the democrats seem to think they'll gain more illegal voters by opening the floodgates, meanwhile we the taxpayers are stuck supporting all the social programs to provide them rent, food, utilities, education, etc. while struggling to pay for our own families. But most of all, first and foremost is the attacks on Christians and holding church services, church choirs, etc. Seems like the Book of Revelations is slowly starting to unfold into the world as we know it today. It doesn't scare me as I know whom I believe in and he has a room prepared for me. It scares me for our future generations who might never get to know God's word and goodness and grace. We have got to get our countries back from these godless people to preserve our freedoms and rights. I can only imagine our founding fathers rolling in their graves right now at all that is happening not only in the USA but all over their world. Mark my word if Russia attacks the Ukraine, China will decide to strike at Taiwan while attention is diverted to Russia/Ukraine.

    Please state clearly that folks should never again give GoFundMe the opportunity to be woke.

    Thank you.

    Go Fund Me needs to be taken down by a an alternative with moral values. Surely there must be options.
