My son came in this morning and said, "Go to Google Maps. Type in Ottawa, Ontario. The streets are all red around Parliament!" He was right. Canada's remarkable truckers have descended on Ottawa. I have been to Ottawa a couple of times, once as a tourist and once on official business. It's a nice town. Seems like a good place to raise kids. It, however, is full of the same sort of creature we see in DC, the sneering, smug "managerial class" that looks down on the rest of the country and its people. In other words, lots of Justin Trudeau clones.
The mainstream Canadian and American media have sought to ignore, downplay, and malign the Freedom Convoy. A WaPo cartoon depicts the truckers as "Fascists"; CBC commentators label them extremists possibly doing the bidding of Vlad Putin; and Pretty Boy Justin, allegedly the PM of that great country, has labelled them and anyone else who questions government edicts on Covid as a racist, misogynist, extremist threat to democracy, and, of course, as "Unacceptable." Great word.
I hope that tens-of-thousands of T-shirts, bumper stickers, and ball caps appear declaring their owners' pride in being "Unacceptable."
Dear "Unacceptables," we "Deplorables" welcome you to the North American fraternity of freedom fighters! In a time such as this, "Unacceptable" or "Deplorable" is the only moral stance.
We in the Diplomad household couldn't stop laughing when Pretty Boy Justin appeared in front of the "undisclosed location" to which he has fled, and announced that he and his children have tested positive for Covid. This from a guy who is double vaccinated and "boostered," and who demands that all Canadians be likewise. Kinda raises doubts about the vaccine, eh? I guess that vaccine only works if there is no Covid virus present . . .
I will leave it to Canadian readers to let us know what sort of follow-up they can expect from the opposition parties once the truckers leave Ottawa. I listened to a couple of Conservatives, and they might have been OK a few years ago, but they seemed to lack the fire in the belly needed to take on the horrid leftist managerial tyranny overwhelming Canada. They reminded me of too many in our own Republican Party.
