During an appearance on Fox News‘ “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Tuesday, Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) said he’s not in favor of breaking the law and that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s response to the protests in Canada “is the tyranny of the managerial elite over the working-class majority” where Trudeau is saying, “Look, truckers, I’m smart, you’re not. I’m educated, you’re not. … So sit down and shut up.”
Trudeau behaved like a teenage actor by literally running away from the Freedom Convoy trucker protesters right before they arrived in Ottawa. He ran away at the first sign of opposition to his vaccine mandates. And he told two lies to justify it: for security reasons and fear of catching COVID. Did he really feel he had to tell two lies to justify his cowardice by running away?
Kennedy said, “I support peaceful protests. I don’t support breaking the law, but what I think we’re seeing in Canada is the tyranny of the managerial elite over the working-class majority. I don’t know Prime Minister Trudeau. I’m sure he is a warm and loving human being, but his leadership has been underwhelming. He’s misjudged the situation. As to the truckers, their protests are not about the vaccine. Most of them are already vaccinated. Here’s what I hear the truckers saying, they’re saying, look, Mr. Prime Minister, we’ve been through two years of pandemic restrictions. Our lives have been turned upside down. Our livelihoods have been threatened. Our kids have lost months, maybe a year, from their education. You say, follow the science. Mr. Prime Minister, let’s follow the science. We look around. We see the Omicron variant, its virulence waning. Most of us are — have immunity. We’re either natural or we’re vaccinated. So what, Mr. Prime Minister, is your roadmap for getting government off our backs and allowing us to get back to normal?”
At one point the senator from Louisiana said, “I would gently say to the prime minister… if you’re going to act like a smartass, first, you have to be smart. Otherwise, you’re just an ass.”
He continued, “Now, here’s the prime minister’s response: Instead of saying, fair question, let’s sit down and talk about it, his plan for convincing the truckers that they are wrong is by saying, you’re a bunch of stupid idiots. Here’s what I hear the prime minister saying to the truckers: Look, truckers, I’m smart, you’re not. I’m educated, you’re not. … So sit down and shut up.”
Trudeau declared a true dictatorship when he invoked Canada’s Emergencies Act over the trucker convoy protest, an event that does not meet the criteria of invoking the act for the first time in Canada’s history. In an extraordinary abuse of power, the Prime Minister game himself the power to take over bank accounts, Bitcoin, and other things against people who disagree with him. In other words, in Canada, you are no longer allowed to protest peacefully against your government, which is the biggest characteristic of democracy. That’s why I say Trudeau has created a real dictatorship.
