The RCMP put out a disgraceful press release following a vehicle attack on First Nation people rallying near a Residential School site.
This is not Boris Johnson’s first rodeo. His party excused him before, will they again protect him and MET police too? Do ducks love water?
GoFundMe announces freeze of the fascists’ funding:
GoFundMe supports peaceful protests and we believe that was the intention of the Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraiser when it was first created.
Suuuure GoFundMe, their intentions started out “peaceful”, while being organized by Pat King of Alberta. who said in previous videos a lot of homophobic and white supremacist things, and that they’d solve their problems with bullets. That’s why the good folks on both sides showed up with their racist flags in the first place too. King thinks the flags were flown as a false flag to sully his spotless reputation… as a bigoted violent racist.
“James Bauder, the founder of Canada Unity and the architect of the “trucker” convoy to Ottawa, has said Trudeau “needs too[sic] be arrested and charged for treason, and for participating in committing crimes against humanity.”
The media has some people doing a good job of reporting on this, but this insurrection attempt is being downplayed in lots of places too as a protest against vaccine mandates, instead of a vast, far-right wing attack on the Prime Minister and legitimate government of Canada.
Meanwhile, Moe and his CPC buddies are rolling out the red carpet for the protesters who manage to limp home with their own funds.
And then, some GoFundMe collateral damage happened. Caryma is a legitimate journalist, and GoFundMe just screwed her out of $7000. They’ll have yet one more thing to answer for to Parliament.
What is it about Conservative MPs and Senators that draws them to rallies with fascist flags being flown? Hmm, if only we could know what they’re thinking.
That cop is really disturbing. Look at his smirk at the end of saying racists have a right to be as peaceful as they can manage to be, while shouting violent threats, and throwing elbow. It is worse than a shit-eating-grin. Smiley should be fired or demoted.
The Saskatoon Police incorrectly claimed the government building was a business.
One of the strangest things about modern tech is that you can easily hear what a dead murderer thought of himself and others. There are hours of video of this Rudy guy boasting about his video game prowess while calling women “pap smear”. Cops were warned about his violent harrassment of women, but he had a gun anyway, and this month he killed an ex girlfriend then himself.
YouTuber David Doel was saying all the cops had to do to win mass public support was to come out and do nothing. They couldn’t even do nothing. They threatened charities, faked being poisoned, all while slashing tires, shooting eyes, gassing people, clubbing them, breaking old men’s heads, and playing the victims.
India and China are in a shooting war this week. Why? I’ve no idea.
Canada lost its bid for a UN Security Council seat. Why? Again, not sure. A friend tells me that Trudeau’s racist blackface incidents from decades ago played a factor.
The NDP leader was kicked out of Parliament for the day for calling a racist Bloc MP a racist, after he stopped unanimous consent to examine systemic racism in the RCMP.
Police slashing tires?!
The protests and rallies rage on.
First power outage in weeks, and it’s lasted at least 10 minutes as of writing this. There was heavy rain this morning, but it let up quickly.
Getting word that the power outage is due to damage from a fire and won’t be fixed until after 5pm.
Yesterday, friends noted how dry it has been the last few years; I’ve been rained on less than a handful of times while commuting to or from work. That isn’t a concern this year, as I’m working from home.
The protests rage on in the USA, as the 1% cower behind their angry and violent police mobs. Police have been shooting people in the face, in an apparent homage to the Dicktatorial Cheney. A homeless man in a wheelchair was bleeding from his forehead after police assaulted him. A more famous incident in Buffalo had an older man go to hospital with a serious head injury as officers shoved him backward. The 2 who touched him were suspended and the 57 other piggies went wee wee wee half the way home, resigning from the special goon squad, while remaining paid officers. Their leader announced that the cops were just following orders to leave the injured man unconscious on the pavement/sidewalk.
Just following orders!
A photojournalist lost an eye to cops shooting it out.
Also in Minneapolis, journalists were beaten and pepper sprayed as they fled the violent cop mob.
The American police are out of control, but in Canada there was another murder of an Indigenous woman by an officer just days ago.
The PM was kneeling in solidarity, but it seems like more of an empty gesture when he fails to use his real power. It’s no different from when he marched in Greta’s climate rally while pushing ahead with a doomsday pipeline project.
His 20 seconds of silence response to Trump’s gassing of protesters to get his upside down bible photo op, was not well recieved for a similar reason. One time for show, but now he needs to help people hurt by the Republicans.
The end game for this may be no change, but it’s looking like the start of another Occupy Wall Street level movement. Maybe another American revolution.
The United States has been led by a war criminal, and by a now open fascist since I’ve been 20.
Dr. Cornell West is right, America is a failed social experiment.
