Good for the Canadian truckers. The Canadian truckers protest emerged under the Covid thread, but it has grown way beyond Covid. The "Deep State" (a cabal of government, social media, and big tech) has had a case of anaphylactic shock and is now actively attempting to forcibly suppress any expression of thought contrary to official government policy. In the video clip below, at the approximate 3:50 minute mark, Trudeau proclaims that any expression of "free speech" that is not in conformance with his official governmental position is an "attack on democracy." At the approximate 6 minute mark, Trudeau expressly advocates that demonstrations that he agrees with are "favored". Sort of arrogant, you have a right to demonstrate should you agree with me, otherwise you don't. Sounds like the staged peoples rally's in support of various Communist dictators.

As the days have progressed, the attempts of the Canadian truckers to organize and carry-out their demonstrations has been obstructed, similar to the US IRS shutting down the "Tea Party" movement. In this case social media giants, such as Facebook and GoFundMe have suppressed the ability of the Canadian truckers and those supporting them from communicating and/or donating.
But, because the fundraiser was held on a far-left platform known for shutting down fundraisers and even freezing funds destined for causes popular with conservatives, a large portion of that money (maybe even most of it, if donors aren’t alerted to the situation, and the refund deadline) is likely to be redirected to causes and charities that are vetted by GoFundMe.

The same platform that allows users to solicit donations for violent BLM-supporting felons who assaulted police officers says it took the decision because of “police reports of violence and other unlawful activity.”

GoFundMe’s decision to effectively steal the funds was welcomed by the Ottawa police and by the city’s left-wing mayor, Jim Watson.
Particularly disturbing with the article and quote above, is that if people donate to a specific cause and GoFundMe does not want to distribute that money to that cause, it should automatically refunded to the donor. GoFundMe has no right to re-designate who that money goes to. The does article: does state "All donors may submit a request for a full refund until February 19th, 2022 using this dedicated refund form.". To reiterate, given today's technology refunds should be automatic.

Does it mean Facebook and GoFundMe are not politicized?

Glad to see that GoFundMe is finally acknowledging and responding to public outrage by automatically returning the money.

NO. Facebook and GoFundMe are "in-bed" with the left.

Breitbart, in their article above referred to the GoFundMe page as a: "far-left platform".
But, because the fundraiser was held on a far-left platform known for shutting down fundraisers and even freezing funds destined for causes popular with conservatives, a large portion of that money (maybe even most of it, if donors aren’t alerted to the situation, and the refund deadline) is likely to be redirected to causes and charities that are vetted by GoFundMe. (emphasis added)
Based on the update provided by @moke123 (above), some sanity has evidently prevailed at GoFundMe and the donations will be returned.

As a follow-up to my first post; the continued imposition of draconian Covid restrictions is becoming increasingly dubious. The outrage expressed by the Canadian truckers as well as many others, is a reflection that the public has had enough and no longer perceives of these onerous Coivd restrictions as being science based or even reasonable. Hence, time for peaceful "civil disobedience" a sensible expression of democracy. that both Trudeau and Biden should heed.

It is time for a replacement for GoFundMe to rise up. Maybe Trump's new platform has one. I'm pretty sure that people who make contributions to causes they want to support using GoFundMe don't read the fine print that tells them that GoFundMe has the right to redirect their contribution to a cause they deem to be more worthy.

People are seeing the light. They are tired of being lied to and censored. May the slide continue.

There have been a spattering of suggestions for alternative contributions. Just ran across this one:
This story below just appeared. It undermines the leftist mantra by Biden and Trudeau that those opposed to their draconian mandates are somehow the ones who are undermining democracy. It is the left wing politicians who are playing autocrats who are undermining democracy. The Canadian truckers are upholding th right of individuals, under democracy, to express their views.
'They have contributed to reducing economic activity, raising unemployment, reducing schooling, causing political unrest, contributing to domestic violence and undermining liberal democracy,' the report noted.

It has been reported that General Robert E. Lee is joining the truckers protest! He's arriving in a Transam with a go faster stripe, and Daisy Duke at the wheel....

Thanks for the list Moke. Do you have any idea which would support BLM but not the Truckers because that's what GoFundMe is doing? Even California is investigating BLM, that is how bad their corruption is.

From the big picture perspective we are seeing the blatant hypocrisy of leftist politicians who control cities, provinces, states, and even of the national leaders. When BLM/Antifa went out into the streets to loot and riot, leftest politicians didn't call for them to be arrested. In fact, in the US, members of Congress including the current vice-President (Harris) called the police thugs and raised bail money for the few who actually got arrested. Many of those arrested have apparently had their charges dropped by leftist (Soros funded??) District attorneys.

As a quickie editorial aside, when it came to those rallying on January 6th, the left wing politicians flipped; all of a sudden calling the police heroes along with deranged demands that everyone be summarily arrested. The FBI, in response, appears to be aggressively "hunting down" with extreme prejudice all those individuals and placing them in jail. Strangely, no apparent similar "hunting down" of BLM/Antifa looters/rioters. This is a Soviet style application of justice based on politics not the equal application of the law.

Back to the main theme. The Canadian truckers have been labeled as right wingers, apparently as a form of demonization to justify having their expression of tree speech crushed. Left wing politicians and even social media outlets who previously supported left wing protests are now self-righteous calling for the Canadian government to use the power-of-the-State to shut them down. As an example of this process at work; Trudeau even stated that he participated in protests that he agreed with (BLM), but since he does not agree with the Canadian truckers expression of free speech Trudeau is attempting to shut them down. Basically, Trudeau is acting dictatorial as he believes that protests can be shutdown simply because Trudeau does not agree their politics. As the Prime Minster of Canada, Trudeau actions (like Biden's actions) are reprehensible as he is being autocratic. National leaders shuch as Trudeau and Biden must arrest those on the left who commit crimes and allow the peaceful expression of free speech by those on the right.

You need to replace "the government" with "The Party".

The government is just the vehicle. And only one of many employed by The Party in its attempt at total control. When The Party lacks access to the levers of government power, it has other means available to it.

I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be controlled opposition, meaning the government plays all sides.

Read some of the SF stories by Mack Reynolds. Most of his stories revolved around a person, let's call him "Joe" for this post. Joe is an unemployed person with a useless college degree living on welfare. Joe meets a girl. Through that relationship he becomes political aware. joins a resistance group, and slowly progresses to activism. Near the end, Joe finds out that he was a pawn of the government and that the revolutionary movement he belonged to was a fraud, as the government agent gloats just before he kills Joe. (I read these stories many years ago, so my memory may be a bit off.)

I just know operation mockingbird is a real thing. I also know several of the Jan 6th instigators were either FBI or were FBI informants and many protestors would not be in jail if not for the help of the FBI planning.

Operation Mockingbird is an alleged large-scale program of the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that began in the early years of the Cold War and attempted to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes.

According to author Deborah Davis, Operation Mockingbird recruited leading American journalists into a propaganda network and influenced the operations of front groups. CIA support of front groups was exposed when a 1967 Ramparts magazine article reported that the National Student Association received funding from the CIA. In 1975, Church Committee Congressional investigations revealed Agency connections with journalists and civic groups.

We live in a real-time PSYOP

Unfortunately, Tucker missed comparing what the truckers are undertaking to what BLM/Antifa did in Portland and Seattle. BLM/Antifa were involved in rioting, looting, and other criminal actives. Not only that but the respective mayors and governors even supported the violent criminal actions of BLM/Antifa!
Now the left wing political leaders in Canada, the police, and the media are calling for disbanding the truckers and if that does not work, to have them arrested. The truckers have not been involved in looting and/or rioting. So on one hand, the left will encourages, as an amazing display of cognitive dissonance, criminal actions for activities that they approve of, but then demand that activities that they do not approve be stopped by utilizing the power-of-the-state. Trudeau made that abundantly clear. This demonstrates that for the left, the law is used for self-serving political gain not for actual legitimate reasons to protect society from criminal activity.

Quite amazing, when BLM/Antifa riot, loot, and otherwise destroy stuff, left wing politicians, such as Trudeau, foamed at the mouth to support them with endless platitudes congratulating them for expressing "legitimate" concerns. Now when a counter populist movement in opposition to their Orwellian dictates emerges, the left wing politicians all of a sudden demand to use the Power-of-the-State to suppress free speech and demonize the demonstrations as "threats to democracy". One headline, for example, Justin Trudeau: Canadians Protesting Me Are ‘Anti-Vaxxer Mobs,’ ‘Racist, Mysoginistic’.
“It has to stop,” Trudeau pleaded in the House of Commons on his return to parliament after isolating for a week due to a positive coronavirus test.
Trudeau pledged federal government support “with whatever resources the province and city need,” without elaborating what measures might be planned.


The Covid trucker variant appears to be very infectious. The Canadian truckers have indeed inflamed the "Deep State" worldwide. Several pundits have also used this to remind people of Karl Marx's rallying cry: "Workers of the World, Unite!". Indeed they are, but not in the way Marx envisioned. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO:

Conservatives have condemned Trudeau for dismissing the protesters – who are calling for an end to all coronavirus-related civil rights restrictions – as “racist” and “misogynist,” as well as comparing them to Nazis. Leftists have condemned Trudeau for not doing much to stop the protests other than insulting the protesters, demanding a plan for resolving the crisis that Trudeau has yet to offer.
The need for the draconian mask mandates is falling apart. Apparently neither Trudeau or Biden seem to comprehend that the "science" has left them in the "dirt". Many municipalities are ending their now unnecessary mask mandates.
