First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
-Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
A Western democracy is currently being toppled from within and turned into a fascist police state in which members of the political opposition to the ruling elite are being hunted down by the state. The Canadian government has viciously persecuted citizens, not just for protesting the vaccine mandates, but anyone who provided monetary support to them. This level of tyranny in the West should be raising alarm bells and red flags — especially among supposed advocates of civil liberties — but it’s not. Instead, many folks are supporting it.
The left has not only chosen to look the other way in regard to the treatment of the protesters and their supporters, but they have embraced the state’s tyrannical response. Even Anonymous has gone full fascist shill, and is applauding the abuse and subsequent response by the Trudeau regime.
