Patrick Henry Drives a Truck! The Eloquence of Canadian and American Freedom Loving Patriots
"America is a land of heroes."
Who will ever forget that immortal phrase with which President Trump began the most legendary American speech since The Gettysburg Address?
The date was February 4th, 2020.
The event: President Trump's State of the Union address.
America is a land of heroes.
This is a place where greatness is born, where destinies are forged and where legends come to life...
Ladies and Gentlemen, our ancestors built the most exceptional republic ever to exist in all of human history and we are making it greater than ever before....
This nation is our canvas and this country is our masterpiece....
Our spirit is still young, the sun is still rising, God’s grace is still shining, and my fellow Americans, the best is yet to come.
Better patriotic rhetoric simply doesn't exist. It can't. The language of Liberty doesn't get any better than this.
The best part is that, with a pinch and a pat, this incredible eloquence can be adapted to Canada, to Australia, to New Zealand, to France ...wherever Freedom is cherished in the hearts of men, women and children, then "God's grace is still shining...and the best is yet to come!"
And if you listen very, very closely, you will hear President Trump's voice trembling with tears as he speaks these immortal words.
Yet, ever since the stolen election of 2020, it's seemed to me that some people (especially on Gab) are hyper-focused on the General Washingtons, shall we say, as they believe physical confrontation is the only way to restore our "most exceptional Republic" and not focused enough on the Patrick Henries, Thomas Jeffersons and other Founding Fathers who wrote and spoke words that instill Freedom in our very souls. For me, words is where it's at. Without words, what are you fighting for!?!
That's why, in my opinion, there's too much emphasis on "alter or abolish," forgetting that our Founding Fathers spent years exhausting every possible peaceful method to wrest our God-given rights from the clutches of England.
Whenever the creeping, advancing totalitarianism in our world is mentioned to my mother-in-law, she goes straight into denial. "That can't happen here," she says. "This is America!" She'd say the same if she were Canadian. But, apparently, it can because Trudeau the Grasshopper did it in Ottawa last weekend to the freedom-loving Ants, if you'll pardon the insect analogy.
Well, as Julia Roberts says in Pretty Woman, "Big mistake. Big. Huge!"
Far from quelling the Canadians' passion for freedom, Trudeau and his jackbooted RCMP and Gestapo police gratuitous violence have fanned this passion from a bright flame to a roaring inferno.
Big mistake, Trudeau. Big. Huge!
The Ants have realized their collective power and, buoyed by the approval of the entire world, they will continue because their consciences are clear, their cause is just and their anger is righteous. They've learned what their government is capable of and they've got nothing left to lose.
The Freedom Loving Canadians have already won and you have already lost, Trudeau. You just haven't realized it yet.
Here are a few thoughts after vicariously basking-via-livestream in a blissful 3-week festival of Freedom and Patriotism so rudely interrupted by Trudeau's Goons-For-Hire.
To the Heroes of Coutts Border Crossing: You Actually Succeeded Beyond Your Wildest Dreams and Command our Utmost Respect
We Americans like to think we lit the fuse of Freedom with our Revolutionary War and reignited the flame with the 2016 MAGA movement but it dimmed slightly after the stolen election of 2020 and false flag of January 6th.
That's when you Canadians fanned the Torch of Freedom from a shimmering coal to a roaring conflagration that ignited the souls of Patriots from "sea to shining sea" then leapt oceansto ignite every continent for Freedom.
Oh, I know the heroes of the Coutts/Milk River Convoy are devastated today. Some are posting on social media that they feel, quite wrongly, they've failed.
Dear Brothers and Sisters of the True North, you couldn't be more wrong!
Just as on J6 in Washington D. C., you were false flagged and, instead of compromising your devotion to peace in this age of asymmetrical/social media warfare, you made the wise choice of a tactical retreat thus retaining the high ground of peace.
You chose to protect the Freedom Convoy's impeccable reputation for utter peacefulness in Canada by keeping it untarnished, an incredible example of Christlike repaying evil with good and turning the other cheek. You didn't just sing your national anthem, you honored it by living every word of it.
For that, you have America's, nay the entire world's, highest admiration. We quick-to-anger Wild Wild West Americans would do well to take your example of absolute peacefulness and unreasonable kindness to heart.
You have not failed! On the contrary, you succeeded beyond your wildest imagination. Merely because the protest at the exact geographical location of Coutts Crossing/Milk River didn't go exactly to your plans, how dare you hang your heads in shame!
What Do Jan 6th and the Boston Tea Party Have in Common? (The history you've never heard!)
So what do Jan 6th and the Boston Tea Party have in common?
Easy! The Wickedness in High Places in 1773 and 2021 both claim they were "lawless and violent" events...when, in fact, the opposite was true.
The Patriots of 1773 and the Patriots of 2021 both behaved impeccably. As I wrote on January 7th, "The dawn's early light revealed a sea of innumerable patriots already assembled. They prayed the Lord's Prayer together, pledged allegiance to our flag together, sang our national anthem together and cheered together."
But just as on Jan 6th, 2021, there were bad actors on December 16th, 1773, the date of the Boston Tea Party. "John Adams notes that there were bad actors (not patriots!) who wished, 'that as many dead Carcasses were floating in the Harbor as there are Chests of Tea,'" according to David Barton's Wallbuilders website.
The Bad Actors of 1773 did NOT get their way.
The Bad Actors of 2021 did.
This is the story of the Boston Tea Party as you've never heard it before. The story of Patriots who were as patient as they were peaceful. The story of an event carried out so impeccably, so carefully, so kindly, so ethically that during my research on the Boston Tea Party I turned to Michael and exclaimed, "Our Founding Fathers are adorable."
Read on, Patriots!
