The Reason for the Police Violence in Ottawa is Not What You Think
It’s way way worse
“So we’re dealing with cornered feral humans who are terrified. Arguably the entire thing from the lockdowns till now is their knowing what’s coming (They see polls you don’t see. 39% approval my sore ass. More likely 9%) And they know how much they cheated, and it wasn’t enough so they had to cheat at the last minute. Oh, and all of them are criminals, steeped deep in horrible crap. And they can’t afford for it to come out. In their little pin heads, they have to keep control.” -Sarah A Hoyt
The black clad army of mercenaries and police brutalizing a peaceful protest in Ottawa this weekend has been planned for years. It is overkill for a reason. It is theatre. It is an othering, a willful flagrant statement on the future of the working class everywhere. It instructs them: you will die. If not now, then sometime in the next ten years. Your towns will be gutted, your jobs will evaporate, you will scramble for pennies until you fall over dead and your children will have nothing to look forward to. You are Tutsi, you are Jew, you are Kulak, you are compromador, you are Othered. You are headed for the slagheap of history. Fight back and you will be deemed domestic terrorists and encamped indefinitely.
This week, Canada’s intelligentsia unmasked themselves as fully on side of this demonic enterprise, competing to hate on the truckers. I watch or read very little of it because 95% of newsrooms vote either Liberal or Socialist and I spent two years in my early 20’s dating and arguing with a black Marxist professor, so I know exactly what they think.
And what they “think” is hate:
“So why was I, at the trucker convoy in Toronto, gripped by a deep physical loathing, true abjection?”
This is what my highly credentialed black Marxist professor thought: rich people stole all the money and his people are going to steal it back right in front of their noses. Covid was lucrative to the tune of $550 Billion, but it’s winding down. Next up: Climate Change.
Climate change means vitiating the working class.
The scene was not surprising to me: The same sort of people I’d seen at Donald Trump rallies and prepper conventions were there, with their hollowed-out faces intimate with pain, and their perpetually misspelled signs, and their sense of belonging to a community of the excluded. I confess that they disgusted me.
I grew up in a CEO village, where many of the people who ran Canada at the time had country houses. It was a Canadian CEO village so it was humble, but it was nice, like a picture-perfect country village with some pretty not-showoffy country houses that rambled and had lawns and were hidden among the trees. Our family had senior academics and bureaucrats among its members, who would come to stay and over a weekend you could feel the geyser building up which would inevitably explode in this question: “Where does all the money come from?”
‘It comes from selling people things they actually want and need.’ I could hear my textile industrialist father thinking.
Utility is not what the Canadian government does. The Canadian government operates on emotion, on emotion they pay the media and the arts to create: fury and terror over Climate Change. Fury and terror over Covid. Fury and terror over Donald Trump. Fury and terror over the Right and Christians. Fury and “compassion” for the other-sexed. Fury and sentiment over racism and indigenous rights.
Two-thirds of indigenous reserves don’t have clean drinking water, and the government gives the reserves $12 billion a year, but somehow the water problem is never solved. That’s because it can be demagogued during election season, exactly the way black people are used in the US. The money disappears into a bureaucratic black hole, stolen from the indigenous and the public.
“On my way home, I saw stragglers from the convoy lining up outside the Japanese-cheesecake bakery and the pot shops that have come to dominate Toronto’s urban landscape. I wanted them gone.”
As a result of this flagrant generational theft, our private sector has shrunk and our public sector mushroomed. For instance, a cousin of one of my best friends was a Sherpa to a Prime Minister, and when he retired, he got the normal huge indexed pension with Soviet style percs, special doctors, special accesses, etc etc etc. But he also got a $54 million dollar grant A YEAR to run a think tank out of a university so he and his wife can swan around the world meeting important people and going out to dinner. Once a year, like clockwork, he produces an op-ed.
Let’s compute. $54 million a year times ten years is $550 million. Times 20? $1.1 Billion. Our economy is 10% the size of the USA, so it far out-classes the looting of the public purse by the Clintons, the Bidens, the Bushes. James A Johnson, the Fannie Mae chieftain who triggered the housing crisis only walked away with $100 million.
We may be nice, we also know how to steal.
On a smaller scale, our entire “cultural product” is government funded. For instance, the director of a Hallmark Movie – written and starred in by Americans and set in the US (though filmed in Canada), dealing with specific US cultural issues, and meant to air in the US - has his $6,000 a week salary subsidized by $4,000, courtesy of the Canadian public.
This is flat-out theft, larceny that international criminal cartels only dream of.
What you are seeing from our intelligentsia is not righteous anger. It’s howls of terror that their gravy train may end. Along with snobbery and that eternal human preoccupation, social climbing.
“Nobody sensible can feel threatened by anything that comes out of Saskatchewan.”
The brutality in Ottawa is not a warning. It is a promise, a statement of the future. The working class will end their lives in moldering houses they can’t afford to fix, with minimal health care. They won’t even be able to RV to our National Parks.
Think I’m wrong? A gallon of gas where I live is $8.00. Remember how big Canada is.
Think I’m wrong? Friday the 18th, the Federal Fisheries Minister announced the death of the East Coast Fishery, a traditional occupation that has been the base of the Maritimes’ economy for 300 years. She declared that she “was going to leave as many fish in the water as possible, and to grow as much vegetation in the water as possible so that the Atlantic Ocean could absorb as much carbon as possible”.
In human history, every time a nation falls under control of a narrow elite that monopolizes economic opportunities and political power, that nation fails.
And when nations fail, a lot of people die.
The dominant groups at the protest were the rural working class and immigrants who escaped from socialist hellholes to what they thought was a free country.
Time the rest of Canada stood the fuck up.
