A Fox News star used one word to describe the Freedom Convoy that will make you sick
The Freedom Convoy upended Canadian politics and forced governments to back down on COVID mandates.
Not everyone is happy about these developments.
Now this Fox News star used one word to describe the Freedom Convoy that will make you sick.
Leftist co-host of The Five, Gerlado Rivera, smeared the Freedom Convoy truckers as “thuggish” for blocking roads and bridges to pressure the Canadian government to drop the vaccine requirement to enter the country as well as every other COVID mandate.
“One man’s freedom is another man’s oppression. Their behavior has been nothing short of thuggish in Ottawa. They kept people in the neighborhood awake all night, revving their engines, blowing their horns. They’ve deprived Ottawa of business, of tens of millions of dollars, now they’re blockading the international bridges,” Rivera stated.
Rivera ignored the fact that the vaccine mandate could cost truckers their jobs, which would only exacerbate the supply chain crisis.
He also claimed the truckers attempted to destroy the Canadian economy.
“They’re laying off people, cutting their shifts short in automotive assembly plants because they can’t get the parts from Canada to the United States. They used their crowbars to threaten cops who were going to tow their trucks away they were blocking. They told tow truck drivers that they’ll remember them when this is over, a clear intimidation tactic. To give these guys the mantle of freedom fighters is absolutely appallingly naïve,” Rivera stated.
Rivera then attacked the trucker’s as “destructive.”
“I understand the frustration about masks and all the rest of it, but to give these folks a pass is, I think, very destructive,” Rivera added.
Rivera then falsely claimed the truckers were Nazis and racists.
“When you have protesters bringing Confederate flags and Swastikas and to paint them in the same portrait as our Founding Fathers? What the hell is that about? They have been very destructive. Forty percent of Canada’s trade goes over the Ambassador Bridge that they have blocked. What about the hard-working people that have gone to work every day during this pandemic and now can’t get to work? Or can’t work because there’s no parts in their factory to work with? I think that it’s selfish, and it is excessive,” Rivera exclaimed.
Leftists are terrified at the power the Freedom Convoy holds.
Truckers could shut down the food supply or any other sector of the economy in protest of the Left’s agenda.
And that’s why leftists in the media trip over themselves to smear the convoy.
