Every time you think you've seen everything during the three (previously) peaceful weeks of Canada's Freedom Convoy, something even more bizarre happens.
Today we witnessed the worst of Tyrant Trudeau and his Gestapo when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police plunged into the crowd with their steeds, trampling a woman to death [UPDATE 2-19-2022: She may not have died however I thought I saw a horse's hoof land on her torso.] as well as reportedly killing a man who livestreamer, Zoke, says perished after a horse trod on his head. (Not confirmed. Media silence.)
Meanwhile, the Lovers of Freedom continued to make Tamara Lich proud by remaining unarmed and peaceful. Righteously angry and jolly loud...but still peaceful.
In twelve hours of livestream watching, I never saw a fist raised nor a patriot touch a cop in any way. The patriots even admonished each other not to use the "F" word at the police.
At the other end of the emotional spectrum after the RCMP committed murder were the musicians who whipped out guitar, banjo and fiddle for a rousing if rather tone-deaf rendition of, "Rock me mama like a wagon wheel, Rock me mama any way you feel, Hey, hey, mama rock me" as a cops slowly closed in and semi after semi was towed away.
If Trudeau had only validated that the government's power is derived from the consent of the governed and met with the organizers, Tamara would've insisted the trucks leave under their own steam and expense and Ottawa be left spotless. Instead, Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer are footing a whopping great tow bill and the Legacy Media will undoubtedly claim the convoy trashed Ottawa when actually it was trashed when they arrived and cleaned it up!
But perhaps the only funny moment in a very unfunny day was when Rohan of the WarCampaign livestream faced the police and wailed in his fake-ass Indian accent, "Plllllease don't tase me, brrrrrro. I'm holding the line and my pee. I'm caught in a mosh pit forrrrrr frrrrrredom."
Best of Times, Worst of Times
It seems apropos to summarize today's "Animating Contest of Liberté" from Charles Dickens' book, A Tale of Two Cities, set during the French Revolution: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness...it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair...."
Ottawa today also can't be described in any one word, emotion or scene.
It was horrible and touching, civil conversation and pepper spray, peaceful and infuriating, melodic and murderous, patriotic and pathetic, constantly punctuated by "arrests" of peaceful protestors as well as...surprise! surprise!...arrests of police who actually did throw down their gear, flush their careers and join the patriots!
From the majestic horses of the RCMP trampling patriots the crazy Canucks fiddlin' and pickin' Rock Me Mama while surrounded by police, it was the very best and very worst of Canada in one frenetic day.
So here are quick vignettes taken from hours and hours of watching multiple livestreams as Canadians wielding batons faced their fellow Canadians shouting, "We love you! Stand with us!" as O Canada, prayers and chants of "Shame! Shame! Shame!" rang out from dawn 'til dark.
Are you watching, normies? Smile! You just got red-pilled...hard! And about damn time too.
Prediction: Trudeau needs martyrs andhe needs 'em fast just as Pelosi did on J6 when they killed off Officer Brian Sicknick. Watch out, Ottawa. False flag incoming. Don't let them call you "cop killers" because they will try it.
Morning/Afternoon: Full of Piss and Vinegar
What was life like before the Canadian Freedom Convoy? I can't remember that far back! Now I leap out of bed after four or six hours of sleep and instantly put a livestream on the ROKU and another one (or more!) on my computer. Then my husband brings up a few on his computers and we virtually live in Ottawa.
Today began with the Patriots and Canadian Police full of piss and vinegar. The first thing I heard was that Zot, the tireless livestreamer, had been arrested. Sure enough, he captured his own arrest on livestream. While a cop in blaze green civilly gave him a "final warning" and explained where he could and could not film another cop barged in and arrested him. It was bizarre, disgusting but understandable. One fewer livestreamer to broadcast their crimes.
Luckily, Zot's girlfriend rushed downtown and restored the livestream. She looks like a stiff wind would blow her into next week but she's been on the front lines all day and is still livestreaming at 1:30 a.m. EST. Hat's off to you, Sister!
The oddly military looking "police" (yeah, right!) shattered truck windows and tore doors open to commence towing trucks away while snipers on rooftops peered down through their scopes, a drone buzzed overhead and tear gas stood at the ready.
It was tense. Very tense while, with a casual la-dee-da, the House of Commons decided to give themselves the day off. A four day weekend. How frickin' convenient for Trudeau's plans but more on that later.
Just before he surrendered himself for arrest, Convoy Leader Daniel Buford who was Trudeau's former bodyguard/sniper but lost his career with the RCMP when he refused the jibby-jibby-jab, fought back tears as he recorded one final, impassioned plea to his former brethren in the police to do what was right, telling them he cares about them...their chief doesn't.
Time, tide, trolley and livestreams wait for no woman so when I returned from giving my housework its daily lick-and-a-promise, I found I'd just missed several ladies being pepper sprayed. As I understand it, it is against the Geneva Convention to use pepper spray on the field of battle. But it's tickety-boo to blast it in the face of patriotic women.
Unfortunately, not being hardened BLM "Peaceful Protestors," the ladies hadn't planned ahead. Got milk? They didn't. Water doesn't work as well but they rinsed off and rallied, looking a bit wounded and blinky, but still determined to "stand for thee."
And that's when the magnificent horses of the RCMP were suddenly reined into taking a quick haw, wheeling left directly into the crowd. Both the police and the patriots barely jumped back in time.
According to the incredible letter (click here!) written by the remaining, unarrested Freedom Convy leadership, some of the police actually threw down their gear and joined the Patriots, only to be speedily arrested by their former brother officers.
Unfortunately, most of the police remained stoney of face, conscience and resolve but the Patriots said you could see in their eyes how unhappy they were and how much they didn't want to follow their orders.
That excuse didn't play well for the Nazis and it won't work for the RCMP, as the crowd informed them...loudly and repeatedly.
