The Freedom Convoy rose up as a massive protest against Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s tyrannical vaccine and COVID mandates.
Freedom Convoy truckers became a symbol of the working-class opposition to liberal elites.
But then Tucker Carlson sounded an alarm on the Freedom Convoy that included two scary words.
Prime Minister Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act to grab emergency power to crush the Freedom Convoy truckers.
In his announcement, Prime Minister Trudeau falsely claimed the trucker protest represented a threat to Canadian national security and the economy.
The Federal government has invoked the Emergencies Act to supplement provincial and territorial capacity to address the blockades and occupations.
The Emergencies Act will be used to strengthen and support law enforcement agencies at all levels across the country. This is about keeping Canadians safe, protecting people’s jobs, and restoring confidence in our institutions.
Tucker Carlson called BS on this decision.
Carlson explained to viewers Trudeau ended democracy in Canada by declaring “martial law” and establishing himself as a dictator stating:
So let’s be clear. This is a defining moment in the history of Canada, in the history of the English speaking west. The Emergencies Act is Martial Law. It has never been invoked in the history of that country.
Now, by law, the Emergencies Act is allowed only in emergencies in quote, “… urgent and critical situations that seriously endanger the lives, health, or safety of Canadians.” What’s happening now does not qualify. What’s happening in Canada now is not an emergency. Here’s what it looked like this weekend.
Carlson continued on warning his audience that Justin Trudeau seizing dictatorial powers to impose a martial law police state to arrest truckers on sight is not the extent of Trudeau’s tyranny.
Trudeau also involved anti-terrorism laws to designate the truckers as enemies of the state.
Under the powers Trudeau now claims, the government can seize the truckers’ bank accounts and cancel their commercial insurance making sure that the truckers lose everything and can never work again.
“But being arrested is the least of their problems. An arrest suggests bail, you can get out of jail. You can’t get out of the country, Justin Trudeau has just made. Under martial law, Trudeau now has the power to force banks to seize their bank accounts and insurance companies to cancel their insurance. That means they can’t actually live in Canada anymore. They are nonpersons, they are enemies of the state and they will be crushed,” Carlson stated.
Canada’s crackdown on the Freedom Convoy most closely resembles how the Communist Chinese crushed the pro-democracy forces in Hong Kong.
No one ever thought an authoritarian police state would ever take root in the West.
But liberal democracy in Canada came to an end as the prime minister announced that if you oppose the government or have the wrong politics the government will arrest you on sight, steal all your money, and prevent you from ever working again.
