Washington Post blasts freedom convoy
If one believes the Washington Post and the liberal woke culture, breathing oxygen is an example of racism and white supremacy.
In the latest example of liberal stupidity, the Washington Post is taking flack for an article that claims that the Freedom Convoy is made up of “racists” who use the word “freedom” as a code word for “white supremacy.”
The article, entitled, “The Ottawa trucker convoy is rooted in Canada’s settler-colonial history,” is written by leftist Taylor Dysart – a Ph.D. candidate in the history and sociology of science department at the University of Pennsylvania.
“The convoy has amassed significant support; its (now removed) GoFundMe raised more than $10 million (CAD) and it has been celebrated by several center-right and right-wing public figures, including Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, and former President Donald Trump. The Freedom Convoy now touts itself as an ‘Anti ALL MANDATES Movement,’ desiring to remove all public health mandates,”
Mr. Dysart, the U.S., we have something called the Bill of Rights. We have the right to peacefully protest. On that basis, the freedom caravan is supported by famous people such as Elon Musk, Joe Rogan, and former President Donald Trump and not famous people like me. Canada has excellent beer but no Bill of Rights. In fact, you have a prime minister who has taken away some of your rights.
Dysart says it isn’t about freedom, health, or mask mandates. It’s all about raaaacism. Uh-Oh, they must have been breathing again.
“While the convoy’s supporters have characterized the protest as a peaceful movement, uninformed by ‘politics, race, religion, or any personal beliefs,’ many supporters have been associated with or expressed racist, Islamophobic, and white-supremacist view,”
“The convoy has surprised onlookers in the United States and Canada, both because of the explicitly racist and violent perspectives of some of the organizers and because the action seems to violate norms of Canadian ‘politeness,’” Dysart continued. “But the convoy represents the extension of a strain of Canadian history that has long masked itself behind ‘peacefulness’ or ‘unity’: settler colonialism.”
If Shakespeare had an opportunity to read Mr. Dysart’s comments above, he might use these words he wrote in Macbeth “It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
“The primarily white supporters of the Freedom Convoy argue that pandemic mandates infringe upon their constitutional rights to freedom,” the WaPo writer continued. “The notion of ‘freedom’ was historically and remains intertwined with whiteness,.
But, as The Blaze noted, the paper was blasted for its lies.
Journalist Tom Elliott: “Evidently Not a Parody: UPenn Prof. Taylor Dysart argues Canada’s civil rights protest is premised on ‘white supremacy.’”
Associate editor Liz Wolfe: “When you call everything ‘white supremacy,’ the term ceases to have any effect whatsoever.”
Political commentator Dinesh D’Souza: “If freedom is a white supremacist notion, as this @washingtonpost article insists, what should we be aiming for instead? Unfreedom? Incarceration? Slavery?”
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.): “Why do conservatives want to keep critical race theory out of schools? Because it leads to the insane belief that ‘one’s entitlement to *freedom* is a key component of White supremacy.’”
Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas): “WaPo: Freedom is racist. Don’t worry! While Canadian Mounties trample citizens.”
This Dysart maggot is pure scum. Just like all his woketard kind. Or to quote the Bard again, this is from my favorite of his plays King Lear, which covers it all:
Thou art a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-liver’d, action-taking, whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch
