‘Non-Violent Dangers,’ or ‘Their Violence Is Speech; Our Speech Is Violence’

 

The Canadian truck drivers’ protest against authoritarianism has included no assaults against police officers, no lootings of businesses, no arsonist fires, no destruction of police stations … all of which were well-represented in 2020 riots corporate media labeled mostly peaceful.

Disappointed by the lack of real violence in the trucker protest, leftists have resorted to the “McAuliffe Maneuver” of sending activists to discredit the movement through white supremacist cosplay.

The Washington Post published an editorial cartoon bizarrely equating a working-class protest against authoritarian Government as “fascism.”  But still, the truckers have persisted in remaining nonviolent. According to the Toronto Globe and Mail, the mere presence of truckers who could potentially hold the wrong opinions is traumatizing to the sort of people who are perpetually traumatized.

It’s not from an extremely famous figure (he is a Fox Business contributor). It’s not an extremely pithy one-liner.  In that tweet, however, you have the summary for so much of the current situation in the GOP.

Considering how much the Ricochetoisie is firmly against mob violence, wanton property destruction, and general lawlessness, shouldn’t there be at least one thread on this site expressing outrage at the riots in Philadelphia last night? “Twitter users flooded the social media site with the hashtag sharing shocking reports allegedly made by officers over police scanners […]

Ahmed Mohamed took apart a digital clock, shoved the bits and pieces into a pencilcase designed to look like a briefcase, brought it to school and became a hero, lionized at the White House and offered scholarships to places like MIT. Levi Frunk took apart a phone charger to see how it works, put it […]
