if the police are giving guys like this fist bumps, it is a sign that your society is working.
if you find that to be problematic, the problem is you.
it is just amazing watching this trigger people. it’s so infallibly revelatory.
i mean, tell me you're the party of "no fun" without telling me you're the party of "no fun"...
“oh, jeez um! we’re three molsons away from total insurrection over here!”
meanwhile, the “inclusive society” patrol was out in force.
sporting the latest in pandemic fashions.
and their penchant for making friends was on display.
i mean, he could charm the pain off walls, this guy…
but the fun part about police is that they often have pretty good BS detectors.
they know what’s going on on the ground and who is about hate and who is about fellowship.
and no amount of trudeau’s whining and vilification is going to fool them, for they have been among these people and seen their mettle. and justin and his hate brigades have not.
and this is why actual community policing matters.
there is no inherent need for police and citizens to be at odds.
if the police take it as their role and their duty to protect the people and to defend their rights rather than serving as agents of governmental intrusion and oppression, then we are all on the same side.
we can be friends, neighbors, and colleagues in building inclusive, free societies.
we just need to remember.
police can be a bulwark against tyranny instead of its henchmen.
and what a world that would be.
i urge you all to join us.
it’s better over here.
better for you. better for us.
better for everyone.
come on in.
the water is fine.
Surely the police realize that these are peaceful people who back the blue, while BLM/Antifa/Trudeau despise them. All it takes is a significant minority to stand down and it's all over. Ottawa 2022 will party like it's Berlin 1989!
We need to go back to when cops were called, and functioned as, "peace officers" instead of the current incarnation as "law enforcement".
It may seem like a minor semantic difference, but I think not. The role and expectations are completely different.
A peace officer is a member of the community, chosen by the community, to keep the peace but otherwise leave people be.
A law enforcement officer is a government thug who enforces diktats from on high without regard to the effect on peace and justice.
It is becoming clear in Ottawa which is which and who is who.
Let's hope the peace prevails.
if the police take as their role and their duty to protect the people and to defend their rights rather than serving as agents of governmental intrusion and oppression, then we are all on the same side.
A perfect phrase. Great post!
Gracias Gato for accurately portraying what's going on in Canada. It's funny but at the same time sad to see how frothing mad the "tolerant and inclusive" people get at us, but it sure does make clear which the good side is.
If you think you're the #Resistance and you're angry the cops aren't brutalizing people... check it out, I got some news for you..
YOU'RE FUCKING NOT.
In the sixties in the US it was girls putting flowers in the rifles of soldiers.
In Canada in 2022 it's hoary truckers having bubble baths in the streets.
What a time to be alive!
Now we just need the good cops to take on the Brownshirts in their ranks:
The video of the dancing brought tears to my eyes. Canadians are awesome!
The gloabalist's worst nightmare: people united for a universal cause---FREEDOM.
Love conquers all.
So different than what the French are enduring! Show em how it’s done Canada! Gives us HOPE for humanity.
proud of canadians! when is america going to stand up to covidiot communism?
police and/or military switching sides and joining the protesters is historically a turning point in popular uprisings.
It’s amazing how this is spreading. I live in a woke county in a non woke state. Even in our woke county we went shopping 4 places today and more than 1/4 of people are mask free. Two weeks ago we were frequently alone. We went to dinner and not a single person wore a mask in. It’s a semi-nice/ woke restaurant - dinner for 4 was $185 including a decent but normal 25% tip. Now it’s time to unmask the service class and the kids still suffocating (including the kids of the woke). 🤗🤗🤗. Compared to where we travel this wouldn’t be progress, but in our woke county this is major progress!!!!
These Canadian MSM ghouls wouldn’t even be on the front lines covering the peaceful protests if Fox News didn’t show up. They live in such a bubble they can’t believe the movement they helped spearhead is about freedom. MSM & their government financiers are flailing. The jig is up
Beautiful, beautiful Canada.
God bless these noble people.
My brothers my sisters my kin.
Ferocious for freedom.
We are one. Against a common enemy.
😭 goddam I wish I was in Ottawa but I can’t get there. Serious, I get tears of pride when videos like this near the flame and wish I could be there
Contrast this with Paris and NZ. My understanding is the French police were imported mercenaries who didn't even speak French, makes it easier to crush people when theyre not your neighbors, I guess.
Pro tip: All the fist bumping is just part of them conditioning you to trust that they're your best pal, right before they flip ya on your back, cage ya and steal your lunch money.
I can't decide if the "gas" sign holder is being ironic or just dumb by displaying a swastika back to front. Don't let wiki tell you it's interchangeable, the same article even gives you both names (the left facing being the sauwastika, signifying "night" to the swastika's "day" ).
Also, I lol when leftoids, who apparently can't stand cultural appropriation and colonialism, apply a very strict, germanized interpretation of an ancient Buddhist symbol and lose their shit when they see it on indian taxis or japanese maps.
I feel like identifying as a Canadian trucker these days—-awesome people!
LMAO. The dumbest thing was the swastika backwards. Sheesh people. If you're going to call me name and throw symbols at me at least put a bit of effort into research.
These protests are about the only thing that makes me wish I was v@xxed. Can’t cross the border so I can’t go
You down with OPP?
Yeah. You know me,
When I was a kid, cops were there to help us. I was nervous when around them of course, but I certainly wasn't scared of them. I was taught to have respect for their authority and, in most cases, they didn't abuse their authority and "if you weren't doing something illegal you didn't have anything to worry about." I would love to see those days return. Law enforcement is kind of a "necessary evil" in a world where there are many different views of lawfulness. But law enforcement definitely doesn't need to "be" evil to protect and serve. I welcome any law enforcement personnel who stand for liberty with open arms.
You couldn’t be any more correct mr cat. Even if you are bad.
Brian Peckford eloquent.
Some more of this and I will eat my recent words about the misplaced hope in police. What a hopeful post. I love the hottub!
This all truly warms the cockles of my heart sitting here in the deep snow and bitter cold of America's Midwest! Fellowship and common purpose be the Canadian byword. Keep it up and this WILL be settled peacefully.

Ladies and Gentlemen: We are AT WAR with the same global tyrants of 18 June 1940:

Is the 11 in that sign a Stranger Things reference? Because she would not approve.
Keep throwing gas on the gaslighters and light the way!!!
Wonderful post! El Gato, I have been thinking for some time that it would be great to see a piece from you about the complex relationship between governments, police, military, militarization of the police and the people.
Fist bumping hot tubbers is the new kneeling with BLM protesters.
Now just waiting for the ratio.
I'm not at these protests, but those signs about killing unvaccinated (especially the one with the swastika) stinks like false-flags just as much as the anti-mandate protesters were.
I guess two can play at that game, but I doubt those signs were genuine, or they were purposely tongue in cheek to show how inhumane the mandates are.
All of us freedom loving Americans should be proud of and emulate these Canadian liberty minded brothers and sisters. This is what REAL courage looks like.
I saw the hot tub and couldn’t stop laughing……how in the hell did they get all that water there? And make it HOT?!!! So funny. But as I progressed through the article and saw the signs the protestors were carrying, KILL the Anti Vax.?!?!?!?! God help us.
Bob and Doug McKenzie would provide free beer
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. The police were given an impossible job, on top of an already extremely difficult one. And then we cut their pay and blame them for the horrible rules the government told them to enforce? How is that fair to them? The best way to support the police is a Great Repeal.
Is Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla still unvaxxed? If so, why?
And just like that, militarized police and mass incarceration are important "tools for public safety" or something.
The only standards they have are double standards.
The Canadian Freedom virus is a super spreader...highly infectious, everyone will get IT..... eventually! 😉
Look what happens when the police are allowed to mingle with the protestors--humanity breaks out!
Party like it’s 2022! Locking a population down for 2 years means they want to start celebrating the freedom they have earned!😎♥️♥️♥️♥️
Hi I'm hoping to get some help with the interpretation of some ONS data (from anyone kind enough to take the time) The link to the data is here. https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/datasets/deathsbyvaccinationstatusengland?fbclid=IwAR21W9ld3sBJstmJc8O8sdcGyVMHxCbZGMckTl8WV2DxCsMh14J86DA8HjQ
I'm looking at the first data set, table 4 column F. Age, population and time adjusted mortality from all causes broken up by vaccination status. In this column you can effective find the difference between any vaccine status and unvaccinated. When this difference is calculated, it shows that for all causes unvaxed are out-performing vax in every month except Feb. However on the other tables (1, 2 and 3) there is a category called 'ever-vaccinated' at the end of the tables that makes the vaccine look quite good for all-cause mortality outcomes. I think maybe I'm misinterpreting how to read the all-adjusted data for each vax status. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Seems GiveSendGo has been hacked...."frozen"...by someone, some group. Nice...complete with "threats" to the biggest donors.....wow.......
Time to resurrect R. Crumb’s classic phrase, “Keep on Truckin’”, albeit with modern significance.
In Greek the word for revolution was stasis. In Latin the same notion was expressed as revolvere-to go around in a complete circle. In English of course the word revolution can denote this circularity or it can depict an uprising. When Goethe, at age 60 obviously flattered by the attention of Napoleon met with him in 1808 in Erfurt at a gathering of monarchs, talk over breakfast was on tragedy and Napoleon interjects "Was will man jetzt mit dem Schicksal? Politik ist das Schicksal!" Politics is destiny. The Polish writer Alexander Wat, writing about his Lubyanka prison existence thinking of the tortured and exiled Machiavelli and power politics and Princes, has this scene as Napoleon interjecting and saying forcefully to the 60 year old Goethe "A tragedy of fate? That's part of the past now. Politik ist das Schicksal."
“GAS the VACCINATED” Glad the sign holder added a little swastika at the top corner so I wasn’t confused about their true state of mental fitness.
