the trucker's convoy in Ottawa may have ended, but their movement of hate and misinformation has not.
after three weeks of protests, riots, blockades, and disobedience, the truckers convoy was finally disassembled by the Ottawa police. it may be quiet in the city again, but the convoy as a whole is far from over. we have seen that similar copycat incidents have happened all across the world, such as in France.
the truckers convoy was a small protest led by a larger movement. the movement of hate, racism, segregation, violence, and such. we saw that they showed extreme hostility towards the cops, throwing gas at them and beating up the police. the most concerning part is that it looked identical to the footage on January 6th, and that scares me more than anything else about the protest.
I also believe that Trump and his GOP minions played a part in this convoy. think about it. he was the one that jumpstarted this whole misinformation and extremist problem. sure, fake news was a problem long before him, but he literally gave it a level up. not only that, he was the one that spread misinformation against the COVID19 pandemic and the mandates, and the convoy was mostly trump supporters who believed in his lies. does it not make sense that he could have something to do with what happened in Ottawa?
let’s also not forget that they literally blocked ports and highways, protested in streets, and scared citizens so much they locked themselves in their homes, fearing that they would be attacked verbally or physically if they revealed themselves to support COVID19 mandates. what’s even more disturbing is that they used children as human barricades, a common tactic among terrorists to make authorities not fight them. don’t believe me? look at this tweet.
I just hope that sooner or later, the truckers are held responsible for the damage and fear they caused. as well as trump, who caused this mess in the first place.
if you want to help put trump in prison, sign my petition to Arrest Trump. it could use a lot more attention. www.change.org/...
