Maher Sees That Truckers Protest Is About More Than Vaccine Mandates

It's a prairie fire rebellion.

Like Brexit in 2016, the Canadian truckers protests may be a harbinger of a conservative rebellion in general. Even honest liberals like Bill Maher see it coming.


“What’s happening this week, it looks like, is people are understanding this is about something more than just the vaccine mandate,” Maher said on Friday. “It’s becoming a big thing. It’s happening all over the world now.”

“Woke, Inc.” author Vivek Ramaswamy told Maher it’s about the “uprising of everyday citizens” against “the rise of this managerial class in democracies around the world…These are the unelected class leaders that ultimately, I think, are using the bureaucratic power to supplant the will of everyday – not only Americans but Canadians and Western Europeans too – and that’s why we’re seeing a fusion of both the left and the right here saying that, ‘Actually we want our voices heard. We want to be able to speak without fear of putting food on the dinner table.” Maher responded.

“You didn’t use that word ‘elitist’ in your whole speech, but, like, that’s the word I think is on people’s tongues and minds,” Maher told Ramaswamy. “There is this idea, and it’s not wrong, that some people are staying home and other people can afford to, like, wait out and get a free vacation and money from the government, and other people can’t. And they’re p—ed off- the people who can’t.” Maher then let Canadian Premier Justin Trudeau have it.

“He was talking about people who are not vaccinated. He said, ‘They don’t believe in science. They’re often misogynistic, often racist,'” Maher said, quoting Trudeau.

“No, they’re not. He said, ‘But they take up space. And with that we have to make a choice in terms of a leader as a country. Do we tolerate these people?’ “‘Tolerate these people’? Now you do sound like Hitler,” Maher said. “And recently, he talked about them holding unacceptable views… I mean, c’mon!” Maher exclaimed. “I think that’s what get under people’s skin.”

Maher went on to cite a New York Times report about the $800 billion in COVID cash, “72% of it “ended up in the households with income in the top 20%. I think this is what the truckers are mad at … all that money went up to the people who are in the top 20%?”

“This is what people are angry at because the system is so corrupt. The system is so corrupt, and it’s not just corporate elites, it’s the corporate elites who are corrupting the system because of the money that corporation, their undue influence on a very, very corrupt government. This corruption is so baked into the cake and, of course, people are angry, people are enraged and they are legitimately enraged,” said wacky new age former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson. If you’re a Canadian liberal and you’ve lost Marianne Williamson? You’ve got a problem.

Good article. Bill Maher is correct in that the trucker convoy for freedom is about that: FREEDOM.
The global elite have worked in the shadows since the late ’50s-early ’60-s on a plan to redesign or “reset” the world. Aldus Huxley and George Orwell had both been privy to “undercurrent plans” and they directly alluded to these plans in their works, Brave New World and 1984. Those books are not visionary or prophetic when one realizes that these authors already knew the strategies already in motion back in the earlier 1900s. What we have seen since is the careful roll-out of an evil agenda. As David Icke calls it, The Totalitarian Tiptoe. Make no mistake, it all leads to a New World Order and One World Government. If the public masses of the world want to save themselves, now is the time. But don’t expect it to be easy. The door is nearly shut and the light is nearly out. What is required is for the husbands and wives, sons and daughters, nephews and nieces, and neighbors in the Armed Forces to “side with their families” and not take orders from the Evil Hand that is forcing their hand. The population of the world is beautiful in its diversity and its talents. What is needed is for the world’s peoples to UNITE. The few cannot rule the many when the many say so, together.
