Trudeau Provides The Template: Large Majority of U.S. Democrats Support Canada’s Crackdown On Protests

Trudeau Provides The Template: Large Majority of U.S. Democrats Support Canada’s Crackdown On Protests

As I wrote the other day, “Trudeau is dangerous not just because he’s abusing Canadians, but because he is providing the wish list for crackdowns by Democrats in the U.S.”

Told ya so. Justin Trudeau’s civil liberties crackdown, which involves weaponizing and commanding private industry to purge from the financial system Trudeau’s political opponents, is dangerous because is sets a template for what Democrats want to do in the United States.

In When Fascism Comes To America, It Will Look Like Justin Trudeau’s Canada I wrote:

Trudeau is dangerous not just because he’s abusing Canadians, but because he is providing the wish list for crackdowns by Democrats in the U.S.

We see it already. Big tech corporations do the Democrats’ bidding in silencing critics through deplatforming, censoring content from publication or social media sharing, deplatforming websites from hosting companies and, as in the case of Parler, from the cloud and app stores. Funding platforms like GoFundMe are pressured to suspend fundraising and deprive the beneficiary of the donations, and payment processors and banks are pressured to cut off deplorables. Removing the political opposition from the modern financial and technology systems is what Justin Trudeau is doing, and it’s the dream of the political progressives in the U.S.

Trudeau is suggesting several more months of the Emergency Act. That the Canadian parliament (barely) approved an extenstion is no relief, in fact its an even bigger warning sign that Trudeau is not rogue, he represents a substantial portion of Canadian politics. It’s directly analogeous to a small Democratic Party majority passing laws to crush their political opponents.

Get your money out of Canada and as far away from Canadian-controlled companies as you possibly can. They are under the thumb of a regime that does not respect property rights, much less civil liberties.

A poll by Trafalger Group for Convention of the States demonstrates that a super-majority of Democrats in the U.S. support Trudeau’s crack down on the truckers. From the CoS press release:

KEY INSIGHT: Majority of Americans Disapprove of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Handling of the Trucker Protest in His Country:
  • 55.3 percent of American voters disapprove of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s handling of the trucker protest in his country.
  • 35.1 percent of American voters approve of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s handling of the trucker protest in his country.
  • 9.6 percent are unaware of it.
KEY INSIGHT: Vast Majorities of Independents and Republicans Disapprove of Trudeau’s Handling of Canadian Trucker Protest:
  • 74.4 percent of Independent voters disapprove of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s handling of the trucker protest in his country. 20.8 percent approve and 4.8 percent are unaware of it.
  • 87.3 percent of Republican voters disapprove of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s handling of the trucker protest in his country. 8.1 percent approve and 4.6 percent are unaware of it.
KEY INSIGHT: Large Majority of Democrats Approve of Trudeau’s Handling of Canadian Trucker Protest:
  • 65.7 percent of Democratic voters approve of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s handling of the trucker protest in his country. 17.2 percent disapprove and 17.1 percent are unaware of it.

From the Trafalger full poll results:

In addition to the level of support, note how a much higher percentage of Democrats say they are unaware of Trudeau’s crackdown. That reflects the mainstream and liberal media burying the negative aspects of what Trudeau is doing. If you only read or listen to those outlets, there’s a much higher chance you are uninformed.

You can’t say you haven’t been warned.

The Dems will be happy with this, until their own ox gets gored. Then, they’ll be crying like the little bitches that they are, screaming “It’s PATRIOTIC TO DISSENT!!!”

    They still won’t care. Broken eggs and omelets. N0 one will care until the boxcars start showing up and even that won’t snap all of them out of it. Tyranny runs in their blood. They do not think like we do. Tyranny is their life. Where is the Canadian uprising after the uprising that was quashed? It doesn’t exist.

    So some Democrats get hauled off? Sacrifices….

      scooterjay in reply to Colonel Travis. | February 22, 2022 at 11:12 am

      I think that “Boxcars” would shake 99.9% of the populace into willingness to take up arms against an out of control monster.
      It won’t be the boxcars, though. It will be something far worse.

        Like a bioweapon?

        I can’t agree with with you. As a kid I eavesdropped on too many conversations amongst my uncles and their friends, Germans, Hungarians and Poles: “Those people deserve…” Those who were aware – not all were; a lot of them thought “These (lazy) people” were being transferred to work camps.
        There ar a lot of sheep out there with a lot of lanolin in their ears and a lot of wool over their eyes who are only to happy to follow the Judas goat.

          Why does no one point out the equivalence of Trudeau’s invoking emergency power with the German Chancellor’s invoking emergency powers after the Berlin Reichstag fire in 1933? Their only difference being the claim who threatens the nation; for Trudeau the threat are National Socialists, for the German Chancellor in 1933 the threat were Communists.
          The German Chancellor’s emergency powers ended in 1945, hopefully Trudeau’s powers will end in less time under better circumstances.

      For the life of me, I cannot reconcile Democrats’ cultural imperative to own slaves, with their cultural imperative to be slaves.

        Slavery for rank and file Democrats. Not for the top. At the top it’s salvery for thee not for me.

        Maybe it’s like a beehive. The pols are the queen bee, they want to rule and be served. The rank-and-file Dems are the eager drones, happy to do her bidding and keep her safely in power in exchange for being a completely disposable and easily replaceable drone (#1,561,370).

        (Not a great analogy, of course, but there are two types of lefties: those who want power and those who want to be parented by government. The latter type is carefully conditioned to be like that, of course, and they’re trying to make it a national imperative by getting to our nation’s children as soon as they can–why I LOATHE the idea of “free” pre-K, they just get their claws into children two years earlier than they do now.)

          With poll #’s like this, why aren’t US politicians seizing on Canada issue? All upside, no downside (perfect grandstand for RINO’s in particular).

        The Democrat rank and file wouldn’t mind being slaves, if we Republicans are mere livestock.

          That’s not how it works, how it has ever worked throughout history. The wrongthinkers are not livestock, they are perpetual threats to the tyrants and must be liquidated. The liquidation takes many forms (gas chambers, state-controlled famine, and etc.), but it’s all to the same end. These people are completely sick and evil, and they believe that if only their sick and evil existed, the world be a better place.

          That’s also how this always works: the lead instigators, “community organizers,” and ground troops are the first to be executed because they pose too much of a threat to the regime they installed. So sad, too bad, crack some eggs to make an omelet and all that.

          These people are evil. Pure, unadulterated evil.

          It may be helpful for our side to consider this clear fact and spend our (limited) time combating this evil. But, naw, what about the RINO’s!??? They have to go, that’ll fix things. /the stupid is reaching peak levels while completely ignoring the clear and present danger. THIS is the #StupidParty at work on the ground.

      “Tyranny runs in their blood. They do not think like we do. Tyranny is their life.” Colonel Travis

      Reminds me of a quote from David Horowitz:

      “Inside Every Progressive Is A Totalitarian Screaming To Get Out.”

Americans need to watch the upcoming trucker convoy to Washington DC to make sure the Democrats under Biden are immediately disabused that action similar to Trudeau’s will not be tolerated. If they don’t, all will be lost and we can kiss our Freedom goodbye.

Biden’s polls are tanking at home. He needs to pull a Trudeau and hold up a chart that shows how much suport he has among Canadians. Or Mexicans. Or Chinese.

Not truly surprising that roughly 2/3 of d/prog would support govt efforts to ensure/enforce compliance with the govt edict of the day. These are the folks who thrive on obtaining and using power. Whether the wacky HR person screeching about CRT/equity, the intransigent school board members determined to keep a mask mandate, the members of your HOA or just a garden variety, neighborhood Karen bitching about whatever random thing set them off.

They are true believers in the collective greater ‘good’ of the community. They believe that not only do they always have the correct answer but that we oppose them due to some moral or ethical defect in our character. That’s why they always trot out ‘isms’ and ‘ists’; the reason for their ad hominem attacks are not primarily about discrediting us but rather about uplifting themselves by displaying their own ‘superior’ virtue.

At the end of the day these whakos truly believe the self delusion that because their motives are pure they are morally obligated to use any means necessary to achieve their aims in the face of disagreement or dissent much less outright resistance or refusal. Buckle up.

Because of course they do. The Dem party is dominated by vicious hate-filled self-righteous authoritarian Marxist tyrants.

They hate freedom loving Americans. They want to silence us and enslave us and destroy us if we resist.

They wish Brandon could do here what the newly hatched Canadian dictator is doing there. One of the last things Blackface Hitler did before invoking the EA was contact Brandon to get his blessing and a go ahead to violently crack down on his political opposition and launch his financial Kristallnacht.

Look at what Pelosi is using Jan 6 to do in the US. If we had a parliamentary system of government Pelosi would be our prime minister. She would have done a year ago what Castro Jr is now doing..

What is happening in the new Chinadian leftwing fascist dictatorship should be (another) wake up call for freedom loving Americans. It could happen here and it is what the Dem Marxists have planned for us.

Even more concerning is that the Dems know they only have until November to pull some kind of copycat move. The clock is ticking.

    No, they do not. Canada is not the U.S., and there is no way they can pull that crap here (at least not in this way). For a start, Republican governors would never allow it in their states.

    This is the main problem for the commie left in the U.S.: we are a republic of states, states that have power that the federal government cannot just grab. If this were tried here, the first thing a governor like DeSantis would do is to pave a path for a banking system that could not be controlled by or bullied by the feds. A second banking system is actually in the works, but it’s inchoate right now and not related (as far as I know) to state government.

    What’s scaring the left in the U.S. is that their totalitarian dictatorial fantasies cannot be manifested under the United States Constitution. They hoped they could bully, shame, name-call, and shutup! their way to socio-cultural and thus total political power, but all that did was piss people off and make them even more entrenched against the leftist dream of dragging America back to the 1930s.

    Never forget that “progressives” want to regress to the eugenics, racist, fascist 1930s, that’s their big dream. It didn’t take hold here in America then, and it won’t now. And for the same reasons. The states are too powerful, and the people in the states rejecting this evil are armed to the teeth and ready to fight to preserve their culture, their country, and their family (not necessarily in that order).

      This applies as long as we have the Supreme Court if not always on our side at least not one of the tools of the Democrats.

      For that reason (I think you already agree with me on this) even if you are in a state where a Republican has no chance of victory in the senate, even if your senate candidate s Larry Hogan or governor racial discrimination of Vermont vote for the Republican senate candidate. The Supreme Court falls to court packing and that is the end of the line for us.

        I think you and I agree on pretty much everything (except taking a lawn mower to the military budget, but even there, lately, I’m seeing a good argument for that).

        SCOTUS is very important, I agree (see!?), but here’s the thing with Democrats, they will pass through Congress and/or through the Executive something they KNOW to be completely unconstitutional. They want whatever their bill/law is to become embedded and thus intractable, and they don’t care if it’s eventually struck down because even SCOTUS rulings don’t actually stop them. They just regroup and resend the same tired crap they’ve been working toward for over a century.

        Also, packing the court is stupid in the way that all leftie ideas are stupid: they pack it up, when the GOP has control, they pack it up more, and then what? We have a SCOTUS with more members than the Senate? Than the House?

        Anyway, for now, at least, they can’t pack the Court because at least two Democrat Sens oppose it (and you can bet there are many more who haven’t spoken up and are content to let Manchin and Sinema take the heat, just like on the BBB boondoggle and filibuster).

        The system is working, Danny, the scenarios that could happen have not . . . because of Democrats right now, but earlier because of Republicans (can you even begin to imagine the hell we’d be in now if McConnell had listened to Trump and nuked the filibuster? NIGHTMARE.).

      “progressives” want to regress to the eugenics, racist, fascist 1930s, that’s their big dream. It didn’t take hold here in America then”

      …Ah, but it DID take hold in America then. It was one of the hallmarks of the (wait for it) “Progressive Era.” It went out of style only because Hitler pissed all over the brand so badly. And ironically, Hitler got all his eugenics and racial purity ideas from us — from the United States.

        By “it didn’t take hold in America then,” I meant that the eugenics-crazed racism and fascism of the day did not take over here in America. It didn’t. So what are you disputing exactly?

      Dems have been using antifa to promote their violence for them. That violence is sanctioned. I think Ann Coulter’s column puts a good exclamation point on the latest rendition.

      The Left’s is speech and the right’s speech is violence.

      Ann has a little crush on the Proud Boys. They’ve made a stand politically, have some respect for the rule of law and are therefore vulnerable to the retaliation.

      This makes the biker gang angle that much spicier- because when confronted with real violent men who have no fear of consequences or retaliation, the left clutches their pearls.

      https://youtu.be/tachTQB6S-I?t=461

      This is from the ASP channel. So think about the potential of 10k guys with this mentality and if they got pissed. That’s what makes the Portland shooting so compelling and that was just 1 dude.

        It’s pretty clear that Dems actually believe these antifa pantywaists will be their public-intimidating brownshirts. But they won’t be. They are pathetic soiboy losers who get run out of towns by regular Americans and get shot to death by MCs they are stupid enough to confront.

        The very last people I am worried about is antifa. They edge out of Seattle or Portland where they are protected by Democrat pols, and they somehow end up dead. Weird how that happens, right?

      Fuzzy, the crackdown will be from the Federal Government. Unless the Republican governors are prepared for a “Fort Sumter” by arresting Federal agents “performing their duties”, the crackdown will happen.

      Are you seeing any governors who will do that? I’m not.

No surprise there. What you failed to mention is that “large majority” of nuts are still a minority.

Think how many US cities would have burned to the ground if Trump tried to do to BLM what Trudeau has successfully done to the truckers?

They would have Impeached him again and there’s a reasonably good chance he would have been removed from office.

The hypnopaedia is working on the Betas quite well. The plan is to increase the rate of travel to 37 centimeters per hour as the midterms are approaching.

taurus the judge | February 22, 2022 at 12:36 pm

Well, personally this is a dream come true and I am happy to see it.

Trudeau is doing the right thing and the lefts (seemingly if you believe the poll) “overwhelming” support is encouraging as well.

Here’s why.

A long time ago a serpent “beguiled” a woman with deceptive words and promises to get her to willingly violate an ordinance.

The “left” got where it is this day by using similar deceptive wordings and camouflaging acts and all that very precisely executed over time to achieve specific goals. They were enabled and assisted in no small part by the apathy and lack of action by the right. ( in many cases because we “didn’t believe they were all that evil)

Now, the left has literally “come out” ( totally shed the sheep outfit) and is showing the world in no uncertain terms just what their true agenda and end state is going to be. (We might be better off defecting to Russia if they succeed)

If this doesn’t fully wake up and engage the sheeple and “fill them with a terrible resolve) to restore and preserve our Republic and freedoms- then we deserve what we get.

    Ashli Babbitt, and the Senate’s almost unanimous hatred shown for the “intruders” on the evening of 1/6 after they reconvened made it very clear. Are we slow learners? I think a lot of people know and are thinking about what to do.

    As for Canada, there’s less they can do, and now the velvet glove has come off the iron fist there too. But maybe all they can do is a work slowdown, refuse to deliver to Ottawa, etc. Doing more, unarmed and helpless, exposing valuable trucks and equipment and committing specific offenses, seems sort of pointless to me. Another way of changing society is needed — a society that depends on the productivity of conservatives to support the lifestyles and perversions of liberals.

      taurus the judge in reply to artichoke. | February 23, 2022 at 7:19 am

      Speaking for me alone (but I believe there are millions of the same mind)

      I was one of the ” We have a problem with the left and rinos but they aren’t really evil out to destroy us” crowd basically up to the SCOTUS decision to not even hear the election issues ( the “original jurisdiction” of the SCOTUS)

      Now that I have gone back and re-reviewed history from a different perspective, I see it as clear as the noon sun in Arizona on a cloudless day.

      This has been a decades long meticulously planned and executed strategy ( strategic and tactical) to not only destroy what we know as the USA but replace it with a totalitarian regime based on a mixture of Marxism and imperialisms with a “”supreme leader” class and a “royal” class right below them and the rest are feeding the boilers down below eerily similar to the “Moloch” scene in 1925’s Metropolis.

Of course they do. Aside from being (not so) closet authoritarians, they also believe all of the slanted coverage, think it’s a white supremacist revolt, and that the truckers are setting fire to apartment buildings and carrying out unprovoked assaults on cops.

    artichoke in reply to Sian. | February 22, 2022 at 4:03 pm

    No, they actually hate conservatives. They tolerate us to the extent we do useful work for them. That’s why the emergency declaration in Canada allows them to force people to work. There are comments ridiculing them and telling them to get back to work for the good of Canada.

    I think it would be very hard to implement though, and a work slowdown/stoppage to force a remaking of society might be their only hope.

smalltownoklahoman | February 22, 2022 at 2:39 pm

“Should go without saying that Canada is more troubling for us than a faraway Slavic conflict because the mechanisms of tyranny used in Canada are the same as ours. Not only is the government/corporate alliance the same, the rhetoric and rationale is the same.”

One key difference though: We the people of the United States tend to be a lot feistier than our northern neighbors. I’m not calling for it but I am predicting that if a crackdown is attempted on the DC convoy the police aren’t going to have as easy a time with it as what happened in Ottawa.

When does hunting season for Communists begin? Not soon enough!

I heard a rumor that soon, maybe tomorrow, Trudeau will step down as PM to be replaced by Chrystia Freeland. That should get sideline most of the complaints about his handling of the crackdown and put in a fresh face, even more ruthless, to ramp it up.

    retiredcantbefired in reply to artichoke. | February 22, 2022 at 4:13 pm

    Why would Trudeau step down when he’s just attained dictatorial power? People like him want to keep what they’ve seized.

    WISteve in reply to artichoke. | February 22, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    Freeland is a ruthless Marxist monster. She showed her true stripes in the trade negotiations under the Trump administrations.
    I do not want a truckers assembly that the MSM will massage to support DemonRats and confuse the issues in the media prior to November. Individual protests well away from the Capitol with a huge demonstration is great. We must remember that the District of Collusion is hostile country under control by the socialist/Marxist city government who would love to send in the jackboot police. Do not give the MSM political opportunities to call American citizens as anarchists. There will be ample reporting in the wide open spaces to show the world how Brandon is despicable.
    A peaceful demonstration in DC along with support demonstrations in a hundred different cities on the same day would be great! Don’t give the MSM an opportunity to campaign for the DemonRats!! Passive resistance by the independents refusing loads into or near the East Coast and Left Coast cities would be the outside limits, but we need every soccer mom in the suburbs active and angry about the Marxist pollution of education and local restrictions toward their normal lives.

Would love to see a conversation between the esteemed professor and Canadanian You Tuber / Rumbler who goes by the name of Viva Frei in the very near future to discuss this topic. I believe that it would be a very informative and enlightening discussion.

To be fair, how many people self-proclaim as Democrats anymore after the last 2 years?

You think this is bad? truedope is trying, like maligNancy pelosi, to incite violence against whichever peon happens to be in the way at the moment. He’ll never be in the way because he has full time taxpayer heavily armed security.
That will give him his excuse to go full out commie. May even make Mao look like a rookie.
Take away his security forces as he doesn’t have atomic weapons. No need to give him US level security.
Give him a dog and some pepper spray and let him protect himself. I’d bet you’d see his commie self turn wimpy.

The problem is Trudeau’s ‘management’ of the COVID virus, masking, and vax requirements, not the truckers.. The same thing will happen here as the CDC’s of information here comes to light. The rest is all just racketeering by crooked pols.

When the American Communists and American Socialist parties realized they would never win at the ballot box, they did not reform, repent, disappear or join the GOP. Those millions went right into the Democrat party, and launched a multi-generation plan to gain control of (in order) that party, higher education, media & entertainment, K-12 education, the courts, government and the military. You can see with our military’s obsession with woke issues they have arrived at the last bastion.

Don’t be surprised if a “Large Majority of U.S. Democrats”, including that rectal prolapse in the Oval office, guided Prime Minister BlackFace all along. You think the ignorant among us are starting to understand what’s coming our way? Sadly, I doubt it.

Yesterday Mainstreet Reseach national election opinion poll has Candace Bergen’s Conservative Party 8 points ahead of the Trudeau Liberals, Even though a large majority supported ending the US border closings and downtown Ottawa ‘ truck-in’, apparently most Canadians do not support Trudeau’s authoritarian declaration, devoid of evidence, of the Emergencies Act.

I think most would agree that the “nuclear bomb” signifying irreversible change would be 1) ending the filibuster, followed by 2) stacking SCOTUS.

I’m not an attorney, but I’ve wondered if the dems tried that if the Supreme Court might rule that it CAN’T be “stacked,” which this court might actually do. What’s the dem’s recourse if they did that?

I’m not sure which is more disturbing: That 65% approved of Trudeau’s actions, or that 17% were unaware of them.
