Wrong Way

I must have the way of it wrong.
Actually I know that I do and that never has any political party come together for the greater good of the country.
By showing a united front in the face of bullshit antics like those going on at border crossings in Alberta, Ontario and apparently some of the dumbasses live here too, Manitoba.
Demanding that the truckers cease and desist.
Applying the same damn tactics that they would have if this had been a protest involving Indigenous groups or BLM groups, tear gas, riot police lined up with shields and batons.
Tanks warmed up and rumbling on the outskirts waiting for direction.
Okay I made the last one up but you can imagine it happening can’t you?
But no, much better, to cause division and further antagonize the situation.
These terrorists, lets call it the way it is, have disrupted lives and trade routes.
They are wrecking havoc with people’s ability to make money, children going to school, people feeling safe in their own communities.
They have shuttered businesses.
They are keeping goods from reaching their destinations.
All in all they have declared war on the people of Canada and the US, not the elected officials.
It is not the elected officials sitting at the border in their cars and trucks.
It is not elected officials sitting in the living rooms of the homes in and around the Ottawa core.
It is not the elected officials that are being harassed and set upon.
It is ordinary people like myself.
Like you.
Now comes the calls to talk to the truckers.
See if they can come to a peaceful conclusion.
Loosen a little of those Covid restrictions.
Play nice with the terrorists.
It is demoralizing to see elected officials pandering to the few while ignoring the rest of their constituents.
Watching as they walk among the truckers, talking to them, encouraging them.
Sending internal memos to target the Prime Minister as the sole proprietor of responsibility.
Applauding the efforts of these small few.
Who are bolstered by the far right from the States.
This is no longer even about Canadians wants.
This is no longer about the Covid mandates.
This has become a trial run for the next showdown in the States.
Trench in here and trench in down in Washington.
Wanna know what the difference is though?
In Washington they will be met with a stronger defense.
They will be met by police.
The army will most likely be on call and waiting.
There will not be another January 6th in Washington.
Maybe we need to look to them for guidance on how to stop this bullshit and return to normal the lives of sane.
