The Washington Post and MSNBC trashed the Canadian truckers participating in the "Freedom Convoy" traveling across the country to protest vaccine mandates for cross-border truck drivers, as well as the Liberal government's coronavirus restrictions.
The convoy, made up of hundreds of big rig trucks, left Vancouver, British Columbia, on Jan. 23 and traveled to Ottawa on Saturday, where they were joined by thousands of other citizens in protesting against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's pandemic policies."It's a cult," declared MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, co-host of the liberal network's flagship morning show "Morning Joe," after co-host Mika Brzezinski painted the protestors as violent vandals and criminals. She noted one report claiming a group of protestors demanded food from an Ottawa soup kitchen for the homeless because they wouldn't wear masks to be able to order food in a restaurant.
"That seems like an interesting way to spend your weekend," Scarborough quipped. "So these anti-vaxxers actually took food from the mouths of the homeless because they're so put upon – I'm just curious, again, where were these protestors when people were required to get five vaccines to start school? Where were these protests when people were required to give their children five vaccines … they were in the doctor's office getting vaccines."
"And they were making fun of left-wingers on the West coast for being loopy anti-vaxxers. Now they have met the enemy, and the enemy – their enemy – is themselves because they've become what they hated. They've become what they mocked," he added, appearing increasingly frustrated. "And now they're taking food from soup kitchens because they're so put upon for being asked to do what they've been asked to do – required to do – their entire lives. It's a cult."
