Editor’s Note: While covering the Quesnel Freedom Convoy on January 29th, 2022 I was most pleased to see the community spirit and support exhibited by Quesnel’s newest gas station and convenience store on 2 Mile Flat – Canco. When I passed by the long line of trucks and other vehicles going past Canco I observed the Owner/Manager Gill Singh running along Hwy 97 from vehicle to vehicle faster than Chester himself passing out cartons of their yummy Chester’s Chicken to the convoy participants.
It’s this type of support and patriotic concern for Canada and for our freedom as a nation by local businesses that make people stop and think about the actions of our governments and the depth of despair and unrest that have been created over the past 2 years of mandates, lockdowns, masks and forced “vaccines”.
It therefore behooves each and every one of us who believes in freedom and democracy to make a special effort to support any business who has the courage and foresight to stand up for their nation. So if you’re passing by Canco check your fuel gauge and your appetite and if either of them require filling up then please stop and support those who support the truckers and all that they stand for.
Also don’t forget to visit the site on Facebook.
What we are having trouble understanding is that our future has already been stolen, and we are having trouble adjusting to it.
Whether we are free human beings or merely slaves to tyrants is a question that has already been answered, at least in the minds of those who control us.
The question for the ages — will we be free or prisoners of mind control devices that prevent our freedom? — has already been answered, long ago. You won’t like the answer, but if you did, there would no longer be a reason to aspire to any kind of consciousness at all.
This is the condition most people would find themselves in if they had any remaining desire to really see what they had become. It is a question most people no longer have the desire to ask.
The message from your government, at any time in any place, is: “Sit down and shut up.” Most people actually like that idea, because they can’t figure out what to do on their own.
Probably the biggest lie you’ve ever been told is that the people watching over you want to give you “liberty and justice for all.” Never happened, never will. All justice is contained in the rules that allow the rich to steal from the poor.
If you maintain any pretensions that you wish to determine your own destiny, you’d better get over it. Ever since the Prussians invented compulsory schooling, there was never any chance that would ever happen.
It was the way it had to be to keep people from killing each other, the experts thought. And it has not worked.
The contract you signed
The way they have it planned, only the worst people will survive. The Earth will become such an ugly place if they are allowed to get their way, kill off everybody they don’t like, and make homicidal viciousness the hallmark of the human species.
You say that’s the way it is already, and we’d be hard pressed to deny it. How is it that so many innocent people have been murdered by people who are always saying they are only trying to stay alive? We must bomb them before they bomb us.
This is the rule that has always governed all societies.
Shall we let them steal our future, or shall we give them what they deserve for attempting such an atrocious crime?
And if we attempt to stop them, what would be an appropriate penalty be for our leaders, our doctors and our teachers who have all participated in a crime more heinous than has ever been attempted in human history?
Or should we, in our cowardly passivity, simply let them do what they want, allow them to deliberately murder most of the planet’s human population with their lethal injections.
Put those masks on your children, and let them grow up as the agoraphobic mole people they were meant to be. Make them just like the governments want, incurably suspicious of everyone not relevant to their own immediate needs.
Just like we have now.
Our fate is skidding on glare ice
The fate of humanity now hangs in the balance on a frozen road in Canada. What happened to the country that promised us life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?
Why have those been taken away from us by lies? And what shall we do to the criminals who have stolen our future?
We have reached a fateful crossroads in history. Will we determine our own future as fully functional human beings or have we been reduced to powerless slaves of billionaires who now can tell us what we can or cannot do?
No matter where we now live or what work we can do, we can all say the same thing — our government has become our enemy.
There is no longer any functional redress of abuse by authorities who seek to destroy our humanity by technological techniques for control, and inflicted them on us under false pretenses by creating a disease in a lab in order to get us to give up our freedom.
Which we have done.
And the real situation is so much worse than that.
They have foisted upon a false pandemic for which they have ordered us take a poison medicine that at this late date has killed millions and permanently injured several million more with an experimental vaccine that was never properly tested and yet required to accept with the penalty of refusal being losing everything we have worked for in our lives.
You can see their empty eyes as they walk aimlessly about near the soiled tents they have pitched on the filthy streets of Los Angeles. If you have any future at all, this is it.
It ain’t coming back
Without justification and without the permission of the people they pretend to govern, governments have eliminated our freedom and now dictate what we can and cannot do. Yet now they have devolved into something far worse, descending to their lowest possible depth, demanding all the forces they control to kill us in the name of species health.
In doing so, they reveal the evil entity they have always been, and revealed the need for permanent systemic changes if we are to remain the trustworthy and functional citizens we have previously tried to be.
To succumb to dishonorable government mandates is to admit we are powerless in the face of tyranny. Could any government be more lethal — more inimical to human freedom — than one headed by a senile moron robotically issuing the orders of his invisible controllers than we have now?
Our government has never worked for the people, it works for the rich so-called businessmen who are really manipulative monopolistic shysters; they are the tyrannical tycoons who control the money supply, who pull the strings and get the smooth talking demagogues to utter the actual words enforcing our enslavement.
The world’s richest families control the world’s biggest businesses, and these individuals now have usurped the power to control what anyone can say to anyone else at any time for any reason. They own the networks, the legislatures, the tax collectors, the schools and the entertainers, who all combine to tell us what we can and what we can’t, for the ultimate benefit not of the people, but for the psychos who control the people . . .
or so they think . . .
The life threatening fact before us is that we have lost control of our freedom. That’s the same as saying we have lost our freedom, which is our most precious possession. Those who control our lives think there is nothing we can do about it.
They are wrong.
Reclaiming our freedom is a complex and daunting task. And yet we see it happening now, just beginning, as millions of people storm forth from their impoverished hideaways to say no to deliberately injurious mandates and to laws which bear no relation to freedom but only to the profits of the sadistic slavemasters, who have always ruled the world . . .
. . . to this point.
You are now on the cusp of a simple equation, of a question which you no longer have the option of not answering.
Will you wake up, or will you go back to sleep? You should know that if you go back to sleep this time, you will never wake up again.

[Editor’s Note: The current video was taken in Quesnel, B.C. on Saturday, January 29th, 2022. The truckers from Quesnel were lined up along 2 Mile Flat on the north end of town and the line-up stretched back to the turn-off on to the Old Prince George Hwy where the Coop is now located. The group had gathered there before starting. Because of the street lights in the city itself the line was broken up into small groups. The video was shot near the Quesnel River Bridge where Hwy 97 crosses the river and winds its way up the hill into South Quesnel. I erred in the video by stating the convoy was on its way to Williams Lake when in fact it was scheduled to only go as far as Kersley which is about 10 km south of the city limits. This explains why there are short periods between the convoy where there’s no horns blaring or flags flying. Please feel free to share the video with friends and associates.]
[Editor’s Note: This initiative by Canada’s truckers could be the most important action taken thus far by Canadians to end all the lockdowns, mandates, forced jabs and increasingly deranged, criminal and psychotic behaviour of our federal and provincial governments that have been ongoing since the spring of 2020. Such an initiative is reminiscent of a century ago when workers around the world were attempting to extract from their NWO industrialists a measure of freedom and equality and they began to STRIKE en mass in order to accomplish their objectives. Those efforts back then succeeded. Today the nation is facing a similar and even more dangerous and totalitarian effort on the part of the world’s extreme rich to control (and destroy) the lives of millions, if not billions, of human beings on the planet in order to accomplish their heinous agenda for global control of the world. They will not stop willingly and as we’ve witnessed over the past two years the more the people try to comply with their wishes the more they add to their sinister plot. We know by now that the mainstream news media (who they’ve owned since 1922) is as complicit in their agenda as they are. Any form of trust between “them” and the people has been long past destroyed and their credibility no longer exists.
Support for Canada’s Truckers is crucial to bringing this destructive behaviour on the part of the Trudeau government to a head. Only “we the people” can and will support their united efforts so it’s up to you and me and every other Canadian who values their freedom and livelihood to contribute to this just cause. Please help fund the truckers by donating to the truckers freedom convoy. With this in mind please read the following plea from Tamara Lich, Truckers Convoy organizer.]
Tamara Lich, Truckers Convoy organizer states:
To our Fellow Canadians, the time for political over reach is over. Our current government is implementing rules and mandates that are destroying the foundation of our businesses, industries and livelihoods. Canadians have been integral to the fabric of humanity in many ways that have shaped the planet.
We are a peaceful country that has helped protect nations across the globe from Tyrannical governments who oppressed their people, well now its happening to us. We are taking our fight to the doorsteps of our Federal Government and demanding that they cease all mandates against its people. Small businesses are being destroyed, homes are being destroyed, and people are being mistreated and denied fundamental necessities to survive. It’s our duty as Canadians to put an end to this mandates. It is imperative that this happens because if we don’t our country will no longer be the country we have come to love. We are doing this for our future Generations and to regain our lives back.
We are asking for Donations to help with the costs of fuel, food and lodgings to help ease the pressures of this arduous task.
But it’s a small price to pay for our freedoms. We thank you all for your Donations and know that you are helping reshape this once beautiful country back to the way it was.
- Money raised will be dispersed to our Truckers to aid them with the cost of the journey
- Funds will be dispersed via e-transfer (preferred) but can also be sent by cheque if absolutely necessary
- Funds will be spent to help cover the cost of fuel for our Truckers first and foremost, will be used to assist with food if needed and contribute to shelter if needed
Published on December 3, 2021
Big stories coming later today.
But first this hopeful analysis: don’t let the rise in case numbers fool you. Culturally and politically, the United States appears to be putting Covid in the rear-view mirror.
And since Covid was always much more a cultural and political problem than a existential threat – or even a medical threat to almost anyone in halfway decent health – spring is coming. Omicron will likely accelerate this trend, unless the South African data are completely wrong.
It is easy to miss what’s happening, given the endless screeching from the elite media and outliers like Bill de Blasio’s idiotic effort to force vaccinations on kids in New York City.
But ask yourself these seven questions:
1: Do you have any idea how many Americans are now dying with/from/near Covid each day? The answer is still over 1,000 on average, but the daily death count – which was a national media-fueled obsession for a year – has been entirely forgotten.
2: What percentage of 5-11 year-olds have been Covid vaccinated? More than a month after jabs for kids were approved, the answer is barely 15 percent – not even one child out of six – despite a massive advertising and media campaign. And I can promise you that number is not going to budge much going forward. The parents who were dumb enough to give their kids a quasi-experimental and short-lasting “vaccine” for an illness that even before Omicron was a cold for most have already done so.
3: When was the last time you heard anyone suggest mandating Covid vaccines for kids? See question 2. Even deep blue state politicians have gone silent on this issue (again, except for the moronic soon-to-be-former mayor of New York). And even the craziest vaccine fanatics have mostly found other issues to froth over. Elections have consequences, and the Virginia election sure did.
4: How many different federal district courts have now ruled the Biden vaccine mandates unconstitutional? I believe the answer is ALL. All the courts.
5: What are the odds the Supreme Court follows suit? Yeah, that bet has been taken off the board. Too likely. Too much action on one side.
6: How many companies have “suspended” or “paused” their vaccine mandates since the courts stepped in? Not quite all, in this case. But many, including bellwethers like Oracle (which as a couple of readers noted to me is particularly telling since it is known for treating employees like widgets). The labor market is tight and companies don’t want to fight with 20-40% of their employees, especially since the vax nuts are now indicating they are going to try to make boosters a standard or quasi-standard to “remain” vaccinated. (Remain? Vaccination by definition should be a permanent or at least semi-permanent – as in lasting a decade or more – condition.)
7: Speaking of boosters, do you know anyone who actually believes the public health authority/media attempt to rewrite history and pretend that boosters within six months of vaccination were planned?
Here’s the thing about the booster. I don’t think the booster will work. I think it will fade within six to eight months. The [censored.Ed.] are four months in, and they are clearly concerned, even though cases haven’t actually spiked yet.
But in the unlikely event it DOES work, great! No one will need a fourth shot.
And in the much more likely event it doesn’t? We have already seen exponential decay in willingness to take a third shot, and that will surely continue to the fourth, especially as side effects continue to pile up. Even the dullest MSNBC viewers will eventually figure out they are better off taking their chances.
So either way, the third shot is the end of the line.
And all this was BEFORE Omicron,
the little cold that could.
Now, this analysis is US-focused. Europe is older, more frightened, leans harder left, and has national and supra-national bureaucracies with powers that make woke American progressives drool. Australia and New Zealand are in even worse shape, as they have never quite shaken the dream of zero Covid.
But I am increasingly convinced that by this time next year, barring some medical catastrophe, we will see all the Covid mandates – including the vaccine push! – the way we now look at school closures (and police defunding) – as regrettable and never-to-be-repeated episodes of societal insanity.
Canadian Tire: Skidding Out of Control?
A Critique of Customer Service in Quesnel, B.C. Canada
November 22, 2021
A couple of weeks ago on November 7, 2021 I was in Quesnel to do some shopping and one item on my list was to stop off at Canadian Tire and pick up another 5 gallon pail of Shell Rotella T4 15W-40 oil for my Ford diesel pickup. I’d been purchasing it there since I bought the truck and have always been satisfied with the service even though during these heady times of covid mania I’ve become a lot more skeptical of the big box stores like Costco, Walmart and Canadian Tire.
Being adamantly opposed to all the NDP government’s bullshit “mandates” and “lockdowns” propaganda I usually do my shopping in outlets who don’t make a big fuss over normal folks who prefer to not wear a diaper over their face while doing business in town. Having been my own mechanic since I first started driving 58 years ago I’m well aware of the fact that it’s not a healthy practise to breath in exhaust fumes from one’s engine and so by simple extrapolation (or deductive logic if you will) it’s also not advisable to block off your ability to expel your own CO2 exhaust fumes by placing a rag over your nose and mouth.
But also because of Murphy’s Law on Unexpected Fecal Fulmination: Corollary #1 – “Shit Happens!” I usually wear my bandana in town for those extra special occasions when logic, reason & common sense cease to be effective (see image above).
As I said I’ve purchased my oil at Canadian Tire before so when I entered the store via the Automotive Parts Dept. entrance I walked past the service counter where a couple of employees were standing talking to each (with their masks on) and proceeded down the aisle to where the oil was. When I got to the spot I was relieved to find that there was still one pail left of the regular oil. The synthetic brand was double the price and out of my budget at the time. I proceeded to pick up the pail and then carried it down to the service counter. The two clerks were still engaged in conversation so I sat the pail on the floor and waited until they were done talking. A couple of minutes later one left to go into the garage and the other fellow fellow turned and saw me and asked me if he could help. I wanted to make sure of the price so I told him the make and model of my vehicle and he looked it up in the book and said it was the right oil and gave me a price. I said “great” and picked up the pail and carried it down to where the guy’s cash register was and sat it down so he could scan it.
As he was doing the scanning and I was getting my wallet out to get my debit card he started chatting with me and we carried on like that until I’d paid for the oil and got my receipt. Once the transaction was completed he then offered to carry the pail out to my truck for me but I declined saying that I was a placer miner and used to carrying heavy objects and it wouldn’t be necessary. I thanked him for his help, picked up the pail of oil and exited from the store and put it in the back of my pickup. At no time throughout the whole process was I wearing my bandana and at no time did the sales clerk ever make so much as a hint that I ought to be wearing a mask.
I was about to get in the truck when I remembered that I also wanted to check on another item in the store. Some years back I had bought a flashlight there. It was one that you can carry in your pocket the brand name being “Coast G20”. It’s about 6 inches long and about 5/8” in diameter. It’s been a mainstay for me and living out in the country I’m never without it as it comes in handy for so many different occasions when you need to shine a beam on something to either open a lock or check out some dark corner in one of your outbuildings or even find your way around the house at night when you’re stumbling down the hallway to let the dog out to its thing. I thought to myself maybe they still sell this particular model and mine was beginning to act up whenever I would push the rubber button to turn it on. I recalled that it was guaranteed for life but I didn’t have my original receipt with me but I figured it wasn’t that costly an item so what the heck why not check and pick up a new one.
I walked back into the store through the main doorway and proceeded to go down to the isle where I remembered the flashlights were. Much to my surprise and satisfaction they still had the same model and it was priced at around $15.00 so I decided to purchase a new one. When I went to take one off the horizontal hook I realized that they were locked on with a tab that required a key and when I turned to my left toward the main isle there was a clerk walking by so I asked him if he had a key for the lock. He kept walking and said no but he’d let someone know down at the paint department counter and they’d come and open it up.
While I was waiting I happened to glance down the main isle to the south end of the store and it was then that I saw Don walking about where the guns and ammo section were located. I already knew that was his department because he is a neighbour of mine who lives out in Cottonwood on the Barkerville Hwy where I do. I gave him a wave and he waved back.
When I turned to see if the clerk with the key was coming from the other direction I saw an older, fairly big man with his red Canadian Tire shirt on approaching me. He walked right up to me and stopped about 2 feet away and immediately asked me if I had a mask. In his left hand he was carrying a box of the standard blue masks. I told him I didn’t and that I don’t wear the blue masks because they’re laced with magnetic particles of graphene that aren’t healthy for people. In like a split second he literally jumped back from me to what I imagined would be the 2 meter social distance requirement as if he’d suddenly realized I was hold a chunk of plutonium in my hand and he was in grave danger of losing his life! As I observed his behaviour and countenance I could see that he was going to be a problem. He then immediately responded to my remark about the blue masks with a haughty half shriek of exasperation and told me in no uncertain terms that he couldn’t serve me and that I would have to leave the store IMMEDIATELY OR ELSE HE WOULD CALL THE COPS!
There wasn’t anyone else around us in earshot and I looked at him and said, “Oh for fuck sakes man just open the lock and I’ll buy my flashlight and leave.” The fact that I used the “f” word only intensified his already overly, in-your-face, aggressive response to my refusal to kowtow to his demand to obediently put on the little blue diaper and do what I was told. He then came closer to me again demanding that I leave NOW.
Around that point my neighbour Don, seeing that things were going awry, came walking up from the gun department with the likely intention of trying to settle whatever was going on. He walks right up to me and stops no more than two feet away and says to me that I should just put on a mask and not start any trouble. As he’s telling me this I’m observing him as well. There he is well within the “safe” 2 meter distance standing directly in front of me with his mask dangling off the end of his lower chin. His mouth and nose are totally uncovered. I say to him, “You gotta be kidding me Don. You’re standing here right in my personal space, practically face to face, with your mask hanging off your chin and telling me that I should put a mask on!?” He replied by saying something about how they are only following orders.
Meanwhile Bozo Bill is standing there fuming like a volcano ready to blow its top and coming closer demanding that I leave before he calls the police. At that point I decide that the best thing to do would be to just calmly walk away and depart without my new Coast G20 flashlight. As I’m walking back up the main isle Bozo Bill is right behind me making sure I don’t dash down another isle and escape. I stop and turn and ask him if he’s been jabbed adding that I have found that people who’ve been given the bio-weapon tend to become more aggressive as the poisons in it work their wonders on the body. He proudly declares to one and all (by then some other staff are around him and a curious customer or two) that he’s had his two shots and his booster to boot! Gad zooks I’m thinking to myself as I continue walking away this fellow is likely shedding spike proteins by the bucket full by now given his state of agitation.
As I walk out my neighbour Don follows me through the check-out counter and out to the front exit making small talk about event that just occurred. As I’m leaving I turn to him and ask him if he’s been jabbed too. He tells me that he’s had his first two shots. I look at him and say, “Take care Don and good luck” and continue walking slowly to my truck which is parked directly ahead of me across from the main entrance. I turn to look back and I can see a small crown of staff and others milling about near the front entrance. Whether Bozo Bill actually called the cops or not I don’t know as they never showed up before I left. I opened the door to the truck and reached into my camera bag and took out my Nikon and then walked a bit closer to the store and took the photo that you see in the header accompanying this article. I then departed to Extra Foods where I knew that I would be welcome to shop in peace without a mask and be treated like a normal human being.
Due to other work commitments I didn’t get around to finishing this article for close to two weeks but just a couple of days ago on Saturday, November 20th I had a rather unusual email from a local friend of mine that became the catalyst necessary to complete the story. He had sent me a video titled “Will you fight?” which I posted on my social media FB page. That wasn’t anything unusual as I get multiple people sending me videos on a regular basis both on FB and via regular email.
Inside the body of the email was the url to video and a short text message that read: “Was in Canadian tire this afternoon. Someone was in there without a mask and he asked them to call the cops [he didn’t want to leave]. Getting crazy. Some people have had enough!” When I read the message I chuckled to myself and immediately thought he was referring to my little run in with Bozo Bill back on the 7th of November. I wrote him back and told him to call me thinking that he didn’t know who that “someone” was.
He did call and when I told him about my experience there he was flabbergasted and said, “No! Really? Well, that’s pretty weird because I was referring to an incident that took place today the 20th of Nov. and then proceeded to tell me that he was in Canadian Tire shopping when some person came into the store and headed down toward the paint department. The person was a male and dressed in overalls and looked like he was working somewhere and likely needed some supplies and that’s why he was there. He then went on to describe what happened and it was basically a replay of the same scenario I describe above. It was even the same bad actor Bozo Bill who was harassing this worker and threatening to call the police. The man apparently responded to the threat by telling Bozo B to go ahead and then quoting something to him about the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. When I heard the story I realized that incidents like the ones I’m now relating are likely occurring on a regular basis in the Canadian Tire store in Quesnel and because no one is reporting them on social media or via the alt media the general public is oblivious to the fact. It’s a definite for sure that local residents won’t be reading about incidents like this in Quesnel’s Cariboo Observer.
What were seeing here in the Canadian Tire example is a case of one department in the store (the Automotive Dept.) behaving in a civilized manner toward its customers and then in a different department seeing employees behaving like bullying, undisciplined goons toward customers who, for whatever reasons, are unwilling to wear the tainted, poisoned blue masks that the company is so quick to offer to them. At no time throughout my encounter with Bozo Bill did he ever ask me whether or not I had an exemption card or anything to that effect.
What therefore does this signal to the general public? Are we dealing with schizoid, power-tripping personalities working in some areas of the store and in other areas mature adults with common sense who are treating their unmasked customers with the same respect that they do the masked ones? One thing for certain that’s becoming plainly evident is that the disgraceful, disgusting, aggressive behaviour on the part of the Bozo Bills working for Canadian Tire sure as hell aren’t helping the company to make a profit and stay in business and be competitive. After what I experienced trying to buy a $15.00 flashlight after just spending a hundred bucks on another product with no issues attached there’s no way that Canadian Tire will ever get another penny out of me and no way that I’ll ever be able to offer anyone positive advertising were they to ask me whether or not Canadian Tire was a decent place to spend their hard earned money.
Large corporations like Canadian Tire may see individuals like myself and the fellow in the work coveralls as merely collateral damage and chances are they’ll likely ream out the good staff members in the Automotive Department for not demanding that I wear a poisoned rag in their establishment while shopping. If they threaten them in any way I do hope that they’ll contact me and let me know about it.
It’s long past time to end the lockdowns and the illegal mandates and the forcing of untested jabs of poison on the populace be they adults or young children. If these draconian measures don’t end soon I imagine that one day I’ll be driving by the store on my way to Extra Foods and the sign over the door will be reading “COMMUNIST TIRE” instead of CANADIAN TIRE.
Update on Nov. 25. A commenter sent me the url to the incident that took place in a Canadian Tire store awhile back in Vancouver. I’ll post the url to the story here:

THE WATSON REPORT: Sky meltdown in Nanaimo
The EVENT on the grounds of the Legislature on Sunday, October 31 was ‘a gas!’ … up to a point. A wonderful warm fall day … a big party. Lots of fun costumes. As usual = 95 per cent White people, a crowd of 700 or so, average age 45, half men half women.
The band was excellent. All went well until 3 pm. when the m.c. announced “Chris Sky is up next!” An hour and nine minutes later he actually had microphone in hand. UN-scheduled, the Indians took over the stage – and went on and on and on with their religious ceremony = songs, prayers to their ancestors, preaching about how their DNA entitles them to lead the Freedom movement = wasting an hour of prime time. Ironically, not one Indian face in the crowd. Sensing the sun going down, getting cold, people ran out of patience awaiting the star of the show, so, drifting away home.
First thing Chris Sky said was “over 75% of the crowd has gone”. Word is: the organizer had arranged for the Victoria Police to escort the March through downtown, starting at 4 pm. So the celebrity got 13 minutes on stage before being told his time was up. Walking back to my car, I heard the m. c. explain to the Marchers, the difference between “disruption” and “disturbance”.
The PROTESTation on Nov. 03 went well. The weather was overcast. Driving in, I wondered how many would show up on this wet Wednesday. It did sprinkle for a few minutes but we were not rained 0ut. Sparse at noon, 35 warm bodies by 1 pm.
After a year, our bi-weekly assembly is a fixture on the Inner Harbor side of the Legislature. Us on the south side of Belleville street: dauntless Nelle Saba on the other side, with a couple of her supporters, countering our message. A few anti-mask/anti-vaxx people over there too. Nelle Belle has been on scene for a couple of months. To start with she was silent. But lately, she’s reacting to taunts. Being on the street for a while will do that to you.
Sticking tight to Nell’s side is our own Miho, who holds a sign contradicting Nelle’s. Towards 2 pm, it got comical. Apparently Miss Saba got antsy at being shadowed and tried to distance herself from Miho. They did a bit of a step dance back and forth … Saba with cellphone in hand, recording it. Probably compiling fresh imagery for her next appearance on CHEK tv in her role as hero-ine of the Vaxx promoters. I predict a puffpiece in the Globe & Mail, ghost written by Saba’s cousin, Rosa.
A bright spot, is = news that attendance at the Oak Bay GATHERING has grown to one hundred. They meet up alternately Tuesday/Thursdays, in the evening. Next one will be Thursday, November 11th.
Every time we are out on the sidewalk new people tell us how glad they are, coming upon our witness. For instance, on Wednesday Jacquie was in tears, as we gave each other a big hug … grateful to discover folks she can relate-to mid’st the IN-sanity.
I don’t keep track anymore, yet I’m sure that we get a hundred approving honks and waves from UN=masked faces drivers/passengers … especially – big commercial vehicles, per session.
If you’re at all interested in the dynamics of the Freedom Movement (and have nothing better to do with a precious hour of your life) you could take in Eric Hern’s video of Christopher Soccacia aka Sky, holding forth at the GATHERING in Nanaimo on Monday, Nov 5, presented on FaceBook. Sky’s consummate arrogance stunk out the joint. The video is painful to watch/listen to. I could tolerate only a few minutes at a time. Mr Soccacia is seen ranting in full blown ‘Roid Rage. Does the frantic pacing, bobbing, flailing, along with pressure of speech indicate onset of cocaine psychosis? You tell me.
In the audience, I see faces of at least 4 people whom I know are regular participants at our PROTESTation in Victoria. Sky sneered “I’m out here doing something. You’re out there holding a sign and an umbrella, doing nothing”. The crowning insult … later in his tirade, boasting how he reaches the masses “I am changing their hearts. I am changing their minds.” So the delusions of grandeur of the Big Noise from Trawna [Toronto, Ed.], are all-important, but the efforts of thousands of “little people” in the hinterlands, aren’t. Is that it?
My Grade 3 teacher taught us = people resort to profanity when they run out of intelligent things to say. Time and time again, he used the expression ‘sitting on your thumbs”. The penultimate low point in Sky’s performance, is: mis-treatment of one of our Victoria stalwarts. Miho was within 8 feet of him her hand held out with thumb down, indicating she did not approve of what he was saying. He walked over, put his face up close to it. Then said “ you can stick that thumb down. It’s the same thumb you stuck up your ass. Oh I can smell it even”. Pointing at her, he sez “this is what political people do”.
I have not run out of pejoratives for the clown who tours under the stage name THE REAL CHRIS SKY © … one sums it up, down and sideways =
His = repeated = condemnation of all and sundry for lack of testicular wherewithal works both ways. It gives me entree to dish it back to him. He used the word “balls’ about 50 times. In the game of poker, such a tic is called a “tell”… a giveaway as to the player’s mind. Methinks he protests too much. The cartoon on the video, along with what I saw in the flesh in Victoria on July 25th is = him vaunting his “dude-bro-thug” persona. In which subculture of bodybuilding, the use of steroids is normal. Longterm steroid use results in a man’s genitalia shrinking. Mr Sky’s obsession with “balls” indicates he looked down one day and was shocked by what had happened to him.
I suspect Mr Soccacia has been deputized to be the attack dog for the Liberal Party. On stage in Victoria last summer, Sky spent 15 minutes of his allotted hour, slagging Maxime Bernier and the PPC, never mentioning the other federal Parties.
I forced me-self to wade-through the video of the Meltdown in Na~Nai~mo intending to do a point-by-point rebuttal. But I’m too disgusted to follow through. To the proposition that Sky does attract “younger people” I say ‘no ordinary person could do this much damage. This took talent’. … the cartoon of Jimminy Cricket’s evil twin motor mouthing vitriol against people – ostensibly! – on his own side, is calculated to repulse ordinary Canadians. On the net Soccacia does more harm than good. His career is an internet phenomenon – a mile wide and a quarter of an inch deep.
At 27:33 min. of the video he sez of himself “yes I am an asshole”. That much I do agree with.
