At last, a supply chain crisis with a cause: the Freedom Convoy.
By now, it is likely that many have heard about the rising Freedom Convoy in Canada, especially since the convoy of trucks has smashed records: At 43 miles long, the back-to-back caravan of trucks is taking a clear stand against government mandates, as well as the encroaching tyranny of Canada, and, by natural extension, the United States.
Former President Donald Trump has certainly heard about the movement, given his high praise of the truckers at a recent rally.
“We want those great Canadian truckers to know that we are with them all the way,” Trump declared, “they’re resisting bravely these lawless mandates. They’re doing more to defend American freedom than our own leaders, by far.”
Donald Trump Jr. also strongly supports the movement, which is precisely why he gave it such enthusiastic accolades on social media, strongly encouraging similar movements to unfold across the United States.
“Support The Truckers!” Trump proclaimed enthusiastically, “I hear something similar is happening in the US and if it does it will be a great first step.”
It would be a great first step indeed.
For starters, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg would have to devise another creative solution to the supply chain crisis, not than any solutions thus far have resolved the perpetually empty shelves characteristic of a Biden economy.
Even better, it appears that truckers in Canada are vastly more popular than politicians in Canada, as the Freedom Convoy has apparently raised more funds than woke “representatives” north of the border have.
Currently, a GoFundMe page to support the “Freedom Convoy” has amassed nearly $10M, which, as reported by Fox News, is hilariously more money than major federal parties in Canada have managed to scrap together in the fourth quarter of 2021.
In contrast, the New Democratic Party raised $1.8M, less than 20 percent of the Freedom Convoy.
Even more humorously, the New Democratic Party received the highest amount of funds of all other political parties, as the Green Party of Canada raised a whopping $800,000, or less than 10 percent of the Freedom Convoy.
However, when reviewing the message of the GoFundMe page, it is not at all surprising to see why it has drawn so much attention and subsequent support.
“Our current government is implementing rules and mandates that are destroying the foundation of our businesses, industries and livelihoods,” the Freedom Convoy’s GoFundMe page proclaims, “we are a peaceful country that has helped protect nations across the globe from tyrannical governments who oppressed their people, and now it seems it is happening here.”
Absolutely correct. Canada, after all, makes California appear almost conservative with some of its most radical policies, in particular the brazen attacks on churches and churchgoers, not to mention the fact that schools are more woke in Canada than America.
On top of that, the Chinese appear to have bought out Vancouver and are undoubtedly making their way further east, so it’s no surprise whatsoever that the Canadians that do have a vestige of patriotism left are fighting like crazy to ensure that freedoms are not irrevocably lost.
In the spirit of snowflakes near and far, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau predictably fled Ottawa rather than face the truckers, and he is now conveniently quarantining due to a positive COVID diagnosis.
Even more conveniently, while Trudeau may show nothing but niceties to BLM while simultaneously refusing to address the serious issues raised by the Freedom Convoy, he cannot erase his glowing commentary about truckers in the past.
Truckers who, quite frankly, contribute vastly more to the economy and the world than BLM and its literally fiery riots ever will.
“While many of us are working from home, there are others who aren’t able to do that – like the truck drivers who are working day and night to make sure our shelves are stocked. So when you can, please #ThankATrucker for everything they’re doing and help them however you can,” Trudeau wrote on March 31, 2020.
How quickly he forgets …
