It's like a recurring nightmare. The Con terrorist truckers will not listen to reason, or learn from their mistakes.
They terrorized the people of Ottawa for almost a month, but still they weren't satisfied.
So now they're planning to invade British Columbia.
Another convoy of people opposed to COVID-19 mandates is rolling across the country, this time headed for Victoria, where participants are prepared to stay for months, according to the organizer.
James Bauder, one of the leaders of the so-called "Freedom Convoy" in Ottawa and a founder of anti-mandate group Canada Unity, says the westward convoy will bring trucks from across Canada to the B.C. capital on March 14.
And not for just for a few weeks, for MONTHS.
"We're going to be occupying that area for two to three months," Bauder says in a video posted online Thursday. "This is a very intense, deeply rooted NDP-Liberal stronghold down there and they've had their way for too long."
So they can torture the people of Victoria, like they tortured the people of Ottawa...

Which is disgusting enough, but this makes it even more obscene.
We know that the Ottawa occupation was heavily funded by far right-wing extremists, the American religious right, and Trump supporters.
But now it seems that many of those supporting the occupation of Victoria are also working for the Russians.
As the tire tracks fade from the so-called “freedom convoy” that occupied downtown Ottawa streets, some of the Telegram forums devoted to the convoy have taken up the torch of a new cause: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Much like the misinformation that fueled some of the trucks headed for Ottawa, conspiracy theories are at the core of some of their conversations about Ukraine — leading them to decry Western intervention in the conflict, or in some cases, express outright support for Russia.
Can you believe it? Cheerleading for the monster Putin, and spreading disinformation.
One very popular post circulating on both forums suggests that Putin is simply invading Ukraine in order to destroy U.S.-run bioweapon labs in the region.
"Russia Produces Documents Showing US-Funded Bioterror Labs in Ukraine Producing Anthrax and Plague,” reads the headline of one article shared in the Global Freedom Convoy channel.
Which means that the Cons are going to have to answer some very embarrassing questions at the upcoming inquiry, about why they welcomed the terrorist convoy to Ottawa so warmly?
And I mean warmly...
And why were they in such a hurry to scrap the Emergencies Act when it could have been used to protect the people of Victoria?
Did they not understand that the Russians might be trying to use the truckers to destabilize our government as they prepared to invade Ukraine?
And of course these other two big questions:
When will the ugly Cons stop trying to topple the duly elected Trudeau government?
And when will the ghastly Con truckers go back to the hell where they came from?
You know, the Cons are always accusing the decent Justin Trudeau of treason.
But they are the real traitors, and they are going to pay for it...
Victoria?! Where trucks need a ferry that costs over $200 each way? These guys aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.
I hope the police in B.C. are more adept than the Keystone Cops in Ottawa. Though I wouldn't be surprised if they treat the Tonka Tovarisch Traitors with kid gloves that they would never use on Indigenous demonstrators. This is white supremacist, domestic terrorism (with foreign influence), not an organic "working class uprising" in the least, no matter what word salad Rupa whatserface comes up with for the Irrational Post. One of these days someone is going to get killed. Zelensky's upcoming address to Parliament could be another flashpoint riling them up, as though they don't hate Trudeau enough already (and the Kremlin despise both of them and Freeland in particular). Where the hell is the hit squad to organize a "tea party" for Putin? Or the tech support team, ready to introduce him to Windows?
This is a colour revolution and who draws them up perfectly?
I say there are no good guys in the war in Ukraine. However do you remember the weapons of mass destruction, the babies being thrown out of windows in incubators. If you look carefully you will see the story about Russia bombing a maternity hospital is part of the same ops group.
Hi anon@5:15 PM....Yes, that's a good point. Except that the truckers won't pay for their ferry tickets, just like they din't pay for their gas or food or bouncy castles during the Ottawa occupation. There is a large dark money group supporting the convoy. I know who some of them are, but the complete list will hopefully be revealed during the inquiry. But you're right about the truckers not being the sharpest tool in the shed...
Hi Jackie....I doubt the police in BC will be able to handle a trucker occupation, especially if enough truckers join in. They will have an easier job stopping the Con terrorists from getting on to Vancouver Island. But if they get established the BC government will have to ask Trudeau to invoke the Emergencies Act again. And the Cons and the NDP will look like idiots for demanding it be revoked when the terrorists are still out there, unable to accept that thanks to Trudeau they lost, and will never be able to get away with what they did in Ottawa. Whether Poilievre can navigate this occupation remains to be seen, but I'm betting he can't, and will only make Trudeau look good, while losing supporters to Bernier's crazy gang...
Hi Steve....I don't know why you are siding with Putin's mobster government. The difference between the lies that led to the Iraq war, and what's happening in Ukraine, is that the corporate media and social media are bringing us a much better idea of what is actually going on. I know the old saying that in every war the truth is the first casualty, and it's something to bear in mind. But from what I have seen of this war so far, the monstrous Putin is responsible for what can only be described as crimes against humanity....
With mandates being lifted everywhere, this FluTruxKlan Hillbilly Clownvoy makes even less sense than the previous one. And now they go to Victoria because it's too libreal to their liking?
Looks to me like we're seeing the birth of the Cons' new campaign strategy. "Vote for us, or we'll send our assholes to occupy your towns."
"But now it seems that many of those supporting the occupation of Victoria are also working for the Russians."
I couldn't agree more, Simon. Putin has been the source of conspiracy theories for so long now that anyone seeing it as anything else is either watching too much Tucker Karlson, are extremely gullible/dumb or are a Russian asset/sympathizer. If it's the latter I say take the next slow boat to Siberia, comrade, otherwise, seek mental help. We don't want nor do we need to hear tinfoil hat cheerleading squads for a barbaric POS like Putin. Even more galling than Putin groupies is that NATO is proving to be a toothless entity who are more worried about Putin's veiled nuclear threats if they enacted a no-fly zone over Ukraine than they are with giving the Ukrainians a realistic chance at winning the war. Memo to NATO, Putin's bluffing! So what we get now is the slow moving train wreck that sickens us on a daily basis. Innocent people suffering and dying who only a few weeks ago were living in peace, getting on with their days much as we do. And why the fuck is Putin the one setting the red lines to not cross? Even though the situations are/were different, I keep asking myself what JFK would have done. There was after all, a time when the US/Nato were the ones who set the red lines.
RE: The Bosnian war.
"The no-fly zone operations of Deny Flight proved successful in preventing significant use of air power by any side in the conflict. Additionally, the air strikes flown during Deny Flight led to Operation Deliberate Force, a massive NATO bombing campaign in Bosnia that played a key role in ending the war."
There was a time...
re Steve: I too was reminded of the Kuwaiti ambassador's daughter and her tapdance about throwing babies out of incubators. I was watching a woman on TV and said to my wife that she was over rehearsed. That was before she kissed a blond kid on the head. I thought of Carol Burnett's soap opera when the star responds to cut by throwing the baby into a garbage can and walking off set.
Zelinsky invalidated himself early with two lies easily disproven. He was digging a grave for the Snake Island 19 one day and they had to admit they were alive and prisoners of war the next day. Then he said that Russia was shelling the containment structure at Zaporizhzhia and Europe would have to be evacuated. Not only lies but stupid lies. More Mr. Bean than Mr. Churchill.
Good info is hard to finf.
Hi Carl....I feel like you do. Mandates are being lifted all over the country, and still these Con clowns keep on rolling, determined to torture more Canadians like they tortured the people of Ottawa. In fact, mask restrictions in BC are being lifted today. But then vaccine mandates were just an excuse for those far-right extremists to spread their propaganda, and of course gather all the grift they can. The Ottawa occupation made them feel like they could get away with anything, it's time decent Canadians and their police forces let them know they can't, and that enough is enough...
Hi JD....The far-right in the United States has been attacking vaccine mandates for many months. Some of them even supported Putin because of his religious fanaticism and vile homophobia. So I'm not at all surprised that the Con terrorists in this country are parroting their foul nonsense. I don't think Putin is a religious person, but he is pandering to the ultra reactionary Russian Orthodox Church, one of whose leaders was quoted the other day as saying the war in Ukraine was punishment for those who hold "gay parades." I also share your frustration at not being able to enforce a no fly zone, and when I see what Russian planes are doing to Ukrainian cities it's almost more than I can stand. But Putin is a murderous madman and we have to be very careful, or I have no doubt that he will unleash a nuclear war upon the world. The Russians may be able to conquer Ukraine, but they will never be able to hold it. The Ukrainians will endure, they will win, and all Putin will have achieved is destroy his own country...
The Free Dumb convoy is just another addition to the authoritarian tool kit. Listing the BC Liberals as a target is a bit of a joke as during the Clark era they were Cons hiding under a liberal flag, a place where the Harper foot soldiers went to retire. In reality the FreeDumbers are the right wing advertising arm of the authoritarian movement thinly disguised as common sense, manly masters of big machines just trying to earn a living under the crushing weight of corrupt big government. The story line is an affront to rational thought, also there are simpler methods to keep the base animated so whats the purpose? The ultimate goal is that by occupying and crapping all over the residents of cities like Victoria it will force the government and citizens to clamp down on protests of all types. Its simply a means of forcing transition to an authoritarian state via the back door. We desperately need rules where occupation with trucks, mobile homes, hot tubs and bouncy castles are not part of the protest scene. Allow protest assemblies yes but leave the shit at home.
Autocracy Inc is a Putin inspired club of modern day autocrats that Trump and Poilievre would love to join. The attached is a somewhat long read but the first few paragraphs about democracy in Belarus tells the story.
Hi rumleyfips...As I told Steve, unlike Iraq modern technology makes it all but impossible to lie about what is happening in Ukraine. So nobody can deny that Putin is acting like a genocidal madman, and threatening to incinerate us all. I have always admired the Russians for the way they defeated the Nazis, if it wasn't for them we would all be speaking German. So it burns me up to see what Putin is doing to tarnish that glorious heritage. And hope that the decent Russian people who he is imprisoning by the thousand will one day hold him accountable for his war crimes...
Hi RT...The Cons trucker movement exists only to collect money for its leaders and spread so-called fake news. So needless to say right-wing extremists see them as useful idiots, or as I prefer to call them useful bigots. For like the Cons they are riddled with racists, islamophobic, anti semitic, and homophobic scum of the lowest order. And the religious right in the U.S. adores them for that. I can only hope that the upcoming public inquiry will follow the money, take a good look at those sending it, and finally punish them. For that to happen we need to tighten up our laws, and as you suggest prevent those big trucks from being used to block roads and drive people crazy with their massive horns. Our small-L liberal decency only encourages them. And as that Atlantic article makes only too clear, if we don't stop Autocracy Inc. before it spreads its bat like wings, the job of destroying it will become ten times harder....
Even after all the lies about voter fraud and the assault to overturn the election the Cons are still the party of Trump. These people are essentially saying if they lose its fraud so they win and if they win they had such a HUGGE majority they overcame the fraud and won. Its really incredible what absolute crap Cons will claim to believe if it suits their purpose! They cannot be that gullible otherwise they would have been swindled out of their valuables long ago but then again the only types of swindlers that can avoid legal jeopardy are politicians and those that spew out misinformation while hiding under the free speech umbrella. Democracy is the only form of government that protects people who are out to destroy it. Can it survive?
