Some of the biggest examples of the mainstream media maligning those who are protesting against tyranny can be found in the Freedom Convoy that was organized over the weekend in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. What began as a protest against border quarantines has swollen into a march for freedom in general, and a potential flagship event for the anti-lockdown, anti-vaccine mandate movement worldwide. These truckers have shown everyone how you attack infrastructure without violence. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with Canadian truckers and Canadian citizens about TRUCKIN’ FUDEAU – THE WINTER OF OUR DISCONSENT.
Over the weekend I got a phone call from a friend who told me that someone he knew was in the emergency room. Apparently, his blood pressure went through the roof, and was rendered unconscious. While the doctors said that he had somehow jacked his sodium levels from eating a meal at McDonald’s — my friend had indicated that the guy got a booster last Friday.
Again, another story that hit close to home — the guy that wound up in the hospital was 46 and athletic.
He was told that he had to get a booster in order to be fully vaccinated for work.
I was angry when I heard this because these are stories that fail to be reported by the mainstream — and yet more and more people are having side effects from the jab that have done a lot of damage.
Being someone who is not vaccinated because of health reasons — I am sick to death being scapegoated and blamed for everything. I feel that I did not cause this alleged spiking of the virus — and yet The President blames the unvaccinated.
Even Doctor Fauci has admitted that a “fully vaccinated” individual with a “breakthrough infection” has a similar viral load to an unvaccinated individual who contracts COVID-19.
The Omicron variant spreads so quickly and generally causes such a mild form of illness among vaccinated populations that countries are tolerating greater COVID-19 outbreaks, willingly letting infections balloon to levels that not long ago would have been treated as public-health crises.
From different starting points, authorities in North America, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific are moving in the same direction, offering a glimpse into a future in which Covid-19 becomes accepted as a fact of everyday life, like seasonal flu.
Health officials everywhere, many for the first time, are forgoing some of the sharpest tools they need to combat Omicron—even as infections soar. They are accepting the virus like never before to minimize disruptions to economies, education, and everyday life.
From “two weeks to stop the spread” to fully vaccinated people being shame/told to wear two masks a year later, this continuing impact is a perfect example of a “gain of function” experimental research principle being implemented not in a lab but in society at large.
This form of – or bastardization of – progress is in fact antithetical to the tenets of a free society. By worshiping at the altar of security theater we denigrate, delay, and deny the myriad possibilities for human advancement that are inherent in the concept of risk.
But that isn’t stopping some governments from continuing their myopic views and still treating people like second-class citizens if they decide that they do not want to be ordered into getting a medical procedure against their will.
I hope that people are realizing that we can’t let this continue.
Despite the fabulous claims made by science on behalf of COVID-19 vaccines, we know now that they do not stop transmission.
Yet the vaccine certificate system remains in place, in many places with absolutely no justification for its existence other than to coerce people into getting inoculated.
In 2022, a person’s worth is now measured by one’s immunization status.
An American’s worth is now determined solely by one’s willingness to comply with the arbitrary and ever-changing demands made by the State.
And that, despite no evidence that the domestic use of vaccine certificates offers any kind of benefit to the wider community, the act of receiving a Covid-19 vaccine is considered in and of itself the noblest of civic acts.
Howard Stern said on his Sirius XM radio show “The Howard Stern Show” that hospitals across the U.S. should not admit patients who are unvaccinated against COVID.
He believes that they all should die.
Stern said “If it was up to me, anyone unvaccinated would not be admitted to a hospital. At this point, they have been given plenty of opportunity to get the vaccine. Now, if you don’t get it, in my America, all hospitals would be closed to you. You’re going to go home and die. That is what you should get. Absolutely.”
This type of ugly talk is not being censored or canceled. No one is removing their music or throwing a temper tantrum over these sick statements — in fact, free speech gives him the right to say what he says.
But no one is calling it toxic.
But apparently what Joe Rogan says about all of the security theater and misinformation in the media is considered misinformation by the mainstream and now Spotify is not only getting musical artists removing their music — but other people are canceling their Spotify memberships.
American liberals are obsessed with finding ways to silence and censor their adversaries. Every week, if not every day, they have new targets they want de-platformed, banned, silenced, and otherwise prevented from speaking or being heard.
This is fanatical if not psychotic.
For years, their preferred censorship tactic was to expand and distort the concept of “hate speech” to mean “views that make us uncomfortable,” and then demand that such “hateful” views be prohibited on that basis.
For that reason, it is now common to hear Democrats assert, falsely, that the First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech does not protect “hate speech.” Their political culture has long inculcated them to believe that they can comfortably silence whatever views they arbitrarily place into this category without being guilty of censorship.
Constitutional illiteracy to the side, the “hate speech” framework for justifying censorship is now insufficient because liberals are eager to silence a much broader range of voices than those, they can credibly accuse of being hateful.
That is why the newest, and now most popular, censorship framework is to claim that their targets are guilty of spreading “misinformation” or “disinformation.” These terms, by design, have no clear or concise meaning. Like the term “terrorism,” it is their elasticity that makes them so useful.
Oh, and we most certainly can’t rule out that those who are spreading disinformation are being paid to do so by Russian propaganda agents.
Yes, they love to decry conspiracy theorists even though their conspiracy theories are loonier than John Kennedy Junior rising from the dead to support Donald Trump.
The Only reason Rogan is considered “controversial” is that he’s someone that – allows individuals to speak their opinions and listens to both sides of the story while presenting a spectrum of takes on political and social issues that runs the gamut and may not conform to the mainstream narrative or “the science”.
Why is it so hard for the mainstream media to allow debate? Because they are becoming state run media –and they don’t want anyone to mess with the framed narrative.
They are willing to redefine everything in their daily newspeak—speaking with an open mind is now a sin – punishable by being canceled.
Now that we’ve redefined “controversial” as “open minded discussion”, it’s also crucial we redefine “misinformation”. The mostly liberal mainstream definition of “misinformation” means any utterance of thoughts that weren’t handed down directly from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the CDC, the mainstream media or global elites and central planners.
Have you noticed that anymore – the news is mostly about maligning those who are fed up with all of the lies and hyperbole that the media is dishing out?
Some of the biggest examples of the mainstream media maligning those who are protesting against tyranny can be found in the Freedom Convoy that was organized over the weekend on the Canadian/ American border.
The ‘Freedom Convoy’ converging in Ottawa this weekend started in response to the federal government’s move to require that all Canadian truck drivers crossing the U.S. border be fully vaccinated. The Canadian Trucking Alliance, the main advocacy body for truckers, has disavowed the protest, saying the vast majority of its members are fully vaccinated and are continuing to work. The core organizers of the protest insist that they are not anti-vaccine but instead oppose mandates that require vaccination for people to work.
In Edmonton, there were so many people in cars and trucks converging on a support rally in front of the Alberta Legislature we had to turn back. It was going to be impossible to find parking. You could hear cars and trucks honking from across the city, many draped in Canadian flags.
Everyone is stressed. Stay away from provocateurs- be polite to law enforcement.
Churches are giving people places to stay and meals. Members of the community are also very supportive.
What began as a protest against border quarantines has swollen into a march for freedom in general, and a potential flagship event for the anti-lockdown, anti-vaccine mandate movement worldwide.
These truckers have shown everyone how you attack infrastructure without violence.
I think Gandhi would have been proud.
However, if you were to do a search on the freedom Convoy, you would hear that they are a toxic group of people being funded by governments who are enemies to the United States and Canada. President Trudeau calls them a fringe group.
Of course, the people with the money to lie to you will try and diminish the impact of this gathering — but their right to refuse is the God-given right that is given to everyone.
The word no should be used more often in the face of tyranny. We should learn to say it more often and make sure we tell our leaders who are supposed to be working for us that no means no.
The right to refuse is hard-wired into us, long before we develop a sense of self in fact one of the first words, we say is not mama or da da — but no-no usually is the first word that we say when we are two years old.
We also tend to use the word when we are teenagers. But when we are older, we seem to forget the power in this two-letter word. So, we have to organize and have other people work together to refuse blind consent especially in times where going along with the mainstream is doing absolutely nothing to promote our way of life.
When I say this — I mean at least we can find a modicum or normalcy and say no to these psychopaths that think they can rule our lives.
The right to refuse, to say ‘no,’ is the mark of a civilized, democratic society.
We had the Nuremberg trials and the civil rights movement. We said ‘no more’ and ‘never again’ to segregation, apartheid, eugenics, and forced medical experimentation.
However, somewhere along the way, there are a majority of fearful people that have forgotten history –and have decided to become oppressors and just follow orders even if they are wrong and counterintuitive.
We said ‘no’ to misogyny, sexism, ageism. We said ‘no’ and ‘never again’ to the horrific crimes perpetrated against children by those who chose to abuse their power and authority within the Catholic Church.
We have said no to racism –and yet there are those who wish to exploit it in order to politicize and rationalize fetishism, favoritism, and segregation.
The right to say ‘no’ to something you fundamentally disagree with or which you feel is threatening to your person or liberty or identity is absolutely sacrosanct.
That is until you decide to get in a Truck and convene at the border of Canada and the United States.
Justin Trudeau has handled the situation with his usual political deftness, blasting the convoy as a “fringe minority” holding “unacceptable views”.
The convoy has massive popular support, garnering over 240,000 followers on Facebook and raising over 5 million Canadian dollars on their GoFundMe page.
At first, Go Fund me froze the funds but it has now been lifted.
If you follow alternate media you likely knew this already, but if you read nothing but the mainstream you likely have this impression that these are fringe trump supporters being funded by Russia or some other hostile nation that is spreading horrible disinformation.
Some mainstream media outlets have reported that organizers are planning to “overthrow the federal government”. They say that they are quoting “intelligence experts” who imply the GoFundMe donations are from foreign governments and compares the convoy to the January 6th, 2021 “riot” at Capitol Hill.
Global News is reporting that “far-right groups how freedom convoy will be Canada’s January 6th”, which is very revealing considering what a contrived piece of political theatre January 6th has become in the last year.
However, no matter what critic or pundit pushed that this gathering is toxic should understand that a global general strike against a government mandate or draconian policy is our right under the Nuremberg Code.
We need to unite on the broadest possible common front and even though those gathering is protesting the vaccine, there is a mountain of other policies that need to be out in check in order to somehow stall the efforts of the great reset.
If your intentions are only to seek out objective truths, why would you turn away anyone’s opinion before sifting away at all available information before trying to arrive at the facts?
The fact is you are either for politicians, elites, and large technology companies dictating what you can and cannot have the right to consider when making decisions, or you support the idea of being able to consider opinions from all ends of the spectrum in order to make your personal decisions.
You are either an advocate for stifling one entire half of an argument – which admittedly may contain the boogeyman disguised as some actual misinformation – or you are pro-freedom of speech and an individual’s right to decide for themselves.
And most importantly, you either have the wherewithal to understand that the official narrative has, and will, continue to get things wrong and that opinions labeled as “misinformation” and “conspiracy theories” can sometimes turn out to be the objective truth or you don’t.
In the meantime, if you want to see progress all you have to do is look north – and keep on Truckin’ Fudeau.
