Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has initiated an unprecedented crackdown against the Freedom Convoy, freezing the bank/crypto accounts of people who donated them and activating a never before used Emergency Act in Canada that could result in a widespread suspension of civil liberties. Trudeau has frequently tried to link Freedom Convoy protesters to the far right, using isolated incidents of demonstrators flying swatstikas and other far right symbols. Now, due to the authoritarian measures that he has taken against peaceful Canadians, people have begun comparing Trudeau to Hitler, including Elon Musk in a now deleted Tweet. The Daily Mail Reports–
Elon Musk has compared Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Adolf Hitler in a meme criticizing his crackdown on Freedom Convoy protests.
Musk, the world’s richest man and a cryptocurrency advocate, posted the meme on Twitter early Thursday, responding to reports that Mounties are seeking to freeze crypto wallets tied to the protests.
The image depicts the Nazi dictator Hitler with the text: ‘Stop comparing me to Justin Trudeau… I had a budget.’ The reference to a ‘budget’ is unclear and suggests the meme is recycled from some prior controversy over Canada’s government spending.
The Tesla CEO has been critical of covid restrictions, including vaccine mandates. In December, he confirmed that he and his children have been vaccinated, saying ‘the science is unequivocal’ but that he does not approve of vaccine mandates.
‘You are taking a risk, but people do risky things all the time,’ speaking of the unvaccinated but he still believes that being vaccinated should be a personal choice.
‘I believe we’ve got to watch out for the erosion of freedom in America,’ he said.
Musk moved to Texas in 2021 from California over the state’s strict covid mandates.”
The liberal media immediately attacked Musk for the analogy, including a headline from the far left Daily Beast that read “Musk Compares Canada’s Trudeau to Hitler in Unhinged Trucker Crypto Freakout”.
