When we were fighting in Afghanistan, one of the (few) strategies that actually worked, albeit only temporarily, was surging troops. Turns out, having more bodies behind rifles and boots on the ground makes it way easier to kick terrorists into the dirt. Shocker.
In any case, either the truckers in Canada studied up on military history or they’re just innately better strategists than the generals that ran our wars abroad (likely), because they’re adopting that tactic and surging their “troops” to Ottawa to flood the Canadian capital with pissed off truckers this week.
News on that comes from Breitbart which reports:
Police in Ottawa have stated that they have intelligence that the number of protestors joining the Freedom Convoy to protest vaccine mandates and Wuhan coronavirus restrictions will increase this weekend.
Trish Ferguson, acting deputy chief for the police force, stated that hundreds of trucks were in Ottawa and while the crowds have declined since last weekend, police intelligence suggests that more people will join the protests this coming weekend.
The intelligence report was echoed by a search of local hotel availability in downtown Ottawa for the weekend, which as of Thursday showed most downtown hotels completely sold out on the booking website Expedia.
So, truckers are pouring into town and they’re ready to take on their incompetent elites.
If the weekend protest is anything like what’s been going on so far, it should be epic. Over the past week, thousands of Canadian truckers have parked their trucks in the street and kept the horns blaring all hours of day and night, showing the soft, generally liberal city folk what it’s like when they and their tyrannical rules piss off real Canadians. The Justin Trudeau, effeminate types are out and the Canadians of Vimy Ridge and Normandy are back.
Trudeau, of course, has tried to play that revival of the Western spirit of freedom off as an example of racism or some other made-up problem, saying “Today in the House, Members of Parliament unanimously condemned the antisemitism, Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, homophobia, and transphobia that we’ve seen on display in Ottawa over the past number of days. Together, let’s keep working to make Canada more inclusive.”
He’s an idiot, so his statement was predictably vapid, but his statement is indicative of something; he’s frightened, worried that they’re going to win and he’s going to lose.
The mayor of Ottawa freaked out too, posting “This is an absolute disgrace that you would come out & praise this illegal action that has caused stress and hardship to residents who have been putting up with horns blasting throughout the night and residents harassed for wearing a mask & businesses forced to close. Apologize” when he saw that members of the government were cheering on the truckers.
If they bothered to answer, I think they said something along the lines of “no, I don’t think I will.”
Nor should they; the truckers and their allies in liberty are winning. It’s time for them to drive the point home by keeping the pressure up.
