Protests against government overreach under the cover of COVID are popping everywhere. From the Paris, Poland, England, Australia, New Zealand and of course the flavor of the week which are the Canadian truckers who are being credited for much of the worldwide upset.
I am going to differ on that. It was not the Canadians that started the racket. It was a bunch of ornery assholes in one state of the Union who pretty much went against the “trust the science” load of horse puckey and even though they had to adapt life to a sickness, they did not sacrifice Freedom for it. And they were maligned for it and promised death and desolation for their actions (or inactions) on how to deal with COVID.
But at the end, they became the example and point of reference for everybody who started questioning what the “Betters” were saying everybody ought to. And they were so right, even the betters had to spend time among them in their home turf because they could not stand to stay long where they come from.
So please, if there is somebody to thank for the beginning of this worldwide civil unrest and revolution, thank the people of Florida for it. From its governor in Tallahassee to the elderly Cuban immigrant drinking “cafecito” in Little Havana. The seed of dissent was planted along the mango Trees, the Ficus and the orange trees of Florida.
