Hello, Benjamin from Brothers Campfire here!
At the end of the day, and a little late to the party, leadership in Europe condemned Canadian dictator Trudeau for his behavior towards protesters in the Freedom Convoy.
Good on them. I think. More on that later.
I watched footage firsthand and spoke to a live streamer that was told they were an enemy of Canada for recording violence.
They were an enemy of a Tyranny perhaps, but not an enemy to the Canadian people.
A line from an anthem comes to mind.
“Thou True North, Strong and Free“
Frankly, I am appreciative of the Ottawa Truckers. I wish us Yankees had done it first. I wish Americans had stood up stoutly overall against Trudeau like Europe did after the fact.
It is funny that Trump and Europe stand in solidarity.
Former U.S. president Donald Trump has taken aim at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, telling his supporters that if they want to fight for democracy abroad, “they should start with the democracy that is under threat right next door, a place called Canada.”https://globalnews.ca/news/8650627/trudeau-trump-trucker-convoy-ukraine/
I believe Trump was talking about Ukraine when he spoke of fighting for democracy abroad.
People are up in arms about Ukraine, probably with justification.
Some guy named Sean Penn is going to smelt his Oscars if Ukraine’s President Zelensky isn’t allowed to speak at the Academy Awards.
Now, the last time I checked, this is a smelt.
And this, is an oscar.
Oscars are predators that eat fish, so smelting an oscar seems pretty good for the oscar.
Where were all these preachy actors and actresses when relatively peaceful protesters were beaten by police/military without nametags in Ottawa?
A threat to democracy is indeed to the North.
Plot twist. I wonder if these noble European leaders had involvement in suppressing Freedom in Ottawa and are now distancing themselves from it because there is a Balding Bear expanding his territory in the European backyard.
When I use Google, the lady doth protest too much.
Recently, a fringe conspiracy is such until the climate changes and it is then declared fact..
Somewhere down the road, we will see where the unmarked green men came from. If they came from Europe, well, we will know there was a bit of hypocrisy.
Moving back to the Ukraine. President Biden has my full backing for steadily ramping up sanctions and stating that Putin cannot remain in power.
The news media and political folk are trying to downplay or soften his statements. Putin is a dictator and a murderer, understanding power. Cherie, an expert on such things can correct me, but, to confront a bully directly and stoutly is the only effective way forward.
