If there is one thing that can be said, it’s this: The trucker strike has, without a doubt, created an uproar. That uproar stems primarily from a government who absolutely refuses to listen. It’s no big secret that the government, both Canadian and American, have exploited the Covid situation for their own monetary gain, that’s obvious to anybody who has been watching. With the passing of mandate after mandate, it has finally boiled down to the working class, or in this instance, the truckers, conducting a protest. What are they protesting, exactly? The government’s mandate to force people into injecting a “vaccine” into their bodies.
The vaccine has been a hot debate since the time of its release. One side claiming that it works, though the government has since contradicted this claim, while the other side stands by the fact that the vaccine’s long-term effects cannot possibly be known. This, to any rational person, would be a legitimate concern. Afterall, the vaccine was developed, tested, and distributed in a very short time. Concerns such as the one listed should be taken into account, but they’re not. Instead, the Canadian and American governments are trying to get people vaccinated, even if it means by force. Naturally, the very backbone of our nations, the truckers, have finally had enough.
The Protest and its fiasco
As thousands of semis continue to block various border crossings, and cities, they stand by their original goal: To stop the forced vaccine mandate. Meanwhile, the Candian, and of course American, governments have taken to conducting a smear campaign against these individuals. Why would they do such a thing, you ask? Good question. One that mainstream media should be asking, but simply aren’t.
The truckers are being labeled as “racist,” among many other things. In essence, they’re saying that if you stand against tyranny, they’re going to mark you as something you’re most likely not. This is the first sign of a weak minded individual. For those who follow the political arena, chances are you already aware of how weak minded that collective truly is. But their campaign of terror doesn’t end with a simple nasty label; it goes into actual threats against individuals who are simply utilizing what should had been their protected right to protest.
The Candian government has made it very clear that if the truckers do not terminate in the performance of their rights, they face various consequences. This includes a $100,000 fine, termination of their livelihood, permanent loss of their commercial license, and up to one year in prison. This is on top of the millions of dollars that the government has already stolen from them via GoFundMe and Give Send Go, both which are American based companies. The tyranny doesn’t seem to end with just targeting the truckers, sadly.
Canadians who post to social media groups, specifically in support of these drivers, are also being targeted. Upon making such posts, many of them are reporting that the police will appear at their door with a brochure. The information on this brochure is about peaceful protest. So supporting a group that is doing that, peacefully protesting, now requires the police to harass any citizen who’s vocal about that support?
Now while some people will say that this isn’t a peaceful protest, I must point out a few things. Aside from blocking a few roads, there has been no violence, no looting, no rioting, no destruction of property, nor burning of buildings. I can’t say the same about some other recent protests. So yes, this is indeed a peaceful protest. One that shouldn’t be treated in the manner to which the government seems to be taking it.
This isn’t about rather or not you agree with the protest. This is about the fundamental right of making your grievance known without fear of retaliation. When the government is able to silence people, simply for expressing their opinions and issues, there’s a problem. This is a problem that doesn’t just exist in Canada. Recently, in America, we’ve been seeing our own government hastily make similar moves toward silencing citizens, specifically the working class. This is an issue that people need to be aware of. People need to understand this one simple fact: Your best interest in contrast to that of the government, are completely different.
