      Nuremberg Trials 2.0

      It’s been 75 years since the last band of human rights criminals were tried. Time for a sequel.

  4. civil disobedience is the only way this is going to end.

    • United non compliance

    • Lets go! Queens park here we come!

      that’s what they want, to separate the disobedient after long provocations! You cannot defeat the system on the street! Only by infiltration in the government, with the same method they work since long-long time! This is our only chance!

    • @Janos Fazekas couldn’t agree more. Looks like were all in it for the long haul. Buckle up my friend. This was all simply the testing phase. Can you imagine when they pull out the actual real scenarios?

      It’s going to lead to that. By 2022, I’m done following the “rules” and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    My friends folks. April is drunk and so we all must go home immediately and lockdown for one month until she is sober. 😆😆😆

  6. A pandemic of government overreach and incompetence

    But it’s entirely predictable after the overreach that we saw this past year.
    When leaders overstep their authority in a time of crisis, that’s how they break our country.

    They are clearly doing this for their own profit.

    • JAMSAI De Melo | April 1, 2021 at 5:32 PM | Reply

      Ofcourse a lot of profit to me made smh

    • Yes, big pharma makes a lot by pushing experimental “vaccines”. Hospitals are getting paid the more “covid patients” they take in. And big businesses and corporations are making record profits because all of their smaller competitors are disproportionately harmed or taken out.

    Open up the country

    London Ontario ICU is full but only has 2 covid patients…..

  13. 1.5X deadlier! From 0.03% to 0.045%. Lock your doors and strap on the saran wrap folks!

    When you’re doctor keeps prescribing the same thing and you’re not getting better, you find a new doctor.

    • When your Ford keeps doing the same lazy lockdowns and nothing changes, you find a new Ford 🤣🤣

  15. Obviously being passive isn’t going to work here. They will not let go of control so we need to take control back by whatever means necessary.

    • And how exactly do you propose we do that?

    • john phillips | April 1, 2021 at 7:16 PM | Reply

      ​@Robin M The only thing we can do is civil disobedience. Never wear a mask and don’t comply with these illegal immoral mandates.

    • @john phillips
      Right, and consequently never be able to go shopping for essential items, and risk getting arrested for not complying with the law (however unconstitutional it may be).

    • @Robin M

      You don’t get arrested… you get forcibly detain and get a ticket that gets thrown out of court on chapter rights grounds

    I can’t believe you haven’t been drug out in the streets.

  17. 3rd wave… 4th wave… 5th wave… 981289376489128347825789871th wave…

    “MUH VURRIENTZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!”

    This dystopian nightmare is NEVER going to end.

  18. Govt better cut their wages in half during these lockdown too..

    • They haven’t for the past 2 years. You think that will change now? Only way this will change is if we’re outfront of Ford (and by extension Trudeau’s) home, with torches and pitchforks in hand.

  19. The enemy has always been Justin Trudeau and his supporters who have collectively devastated the nation’s seniors.

  20. No, we’re fighting the same enemy, and he has a love for cheesecake apparently.
