This weekend, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used police and military tactics to take down the Freedom Convoy. His forces raided the peaceful protest, using tear gas and clubs. They arrested numerous law-abiding citizens and towed their vehicles, in an unprecedented crackdown on Canadians’ civil liberties. His brutish, dictator-like moves have not gone over well with the people of the world.
Not once did Trudeau speak with the Freedom Convoy leaders. From the very start, he insulted them, lied about them, and slandered them in the media. His decision to break up the movement, as if they were dangerous terrorists, will mar his political legacy and perhaps doom his party for years to come. And the verdict is coming in across the globe.
As Trudeau invoked emergency powers, arrested protesters, froze financial accounts, and even threatened to have government officials confiscate pets from detained protesters, the hashtag #BlackfaceHitler began making the rounds.
“I don’t want to hear ONE MORE WORD from these ‘end of democracy’ Democrats until the White House denounces Trudeau and how he’s treating his peaceful protesters,” Florida congressional candidate Lavern Spicer tweeted.

Online users from around the world blasted Trudeau in perhaps one of the ugliest hashtags we’ve ever seen. People are tagging their posts about Trudeau with “#BlackFaceHitler.” The “black face” part is a nod to Trudeau’s sordid past, of a photo of himself wearing blackface (he has yet to admit it was him). Now, people are comparing Trudeau to Hitler, for using violent tactics to clear away dissenters of his regime.
Trudeau’s actions, while alarming, are par for the course for global leftists. Since the start of the COVID panic, they have shown their true colors. Not as freedom-loving liberals, but power-hungry socialists who will abuse anyone to stay in control. These same leftists praised violent protests in 2020—because they supported their radical views. But when peaceful truck drivers demand to be heard, Trudeau and men like him treat them like monsters.
The rest of the world is disgusted with Trudeau’s actions. A man who was once fawned over as much as Obama is now a pariah. People are decidedly on the side of the truck drivers, who were simply protesting a restrictive mandate that did nothing to stop a disease, but complicated and jeopardized their livelihoods.
While the Ottawa protest might be over, this is long from ending. Citizens of the Free World do not take kindly to bullies and tyrants. Trudeau just sowed the wind. He’ll reap the whirlwind.
