(WATCH) Andrew Lawton: Mainstream media says Alberta convoy is “white nationalist”

Rebel Staff

Hundreds of truckers, allies and ordinary Canadians trekked from Alberta to Ottawa to stand up for the Canadians they think Justin Trudeau has turned his back on.

Andrew Stephenson said 1 day ago “The White Nationalists themselves are responsible for this one, they deliberately obfuscate to maintain legal cover and plausible deniability for supporters of their cause”. How do you know this Andrew? if they are hidden? Sure it is possible that there are racists hidden within each political party, but that goes for liberals and democrats as well and it goes for all skin colors. But to suggest you have knowledge of some who are hidden puts the burden of proof on you.
You also quoted me saying "“Trudeau is absolutely treasonous”

How? Please provide specific examples, as well. Uhm not sure which entity whispered that into your ear but I don’t believe I said that for 2 reason 1) I never said it and 2) My belief is to the best of my understanding that you can’t be convicted of treason unless you are at war with a country. Not a cyber war or a cold war but a literal war which as far as I can ascertain we haven’t declared recently which makes me all the more skeptical that I accused anyone of treason or even entertained it in my thoughts. (in the event you misread my mind).

Andrew has to have motivation other than just his own entertainment.

And that motivation would be:
“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies”.

It is quite hilarious to see Andrew making excuses for left wing bigots.

Andrew Stephenson you let other countries run your life and decide matters for you , i refuse to. They have no right to do so , the UN or the EU are just globalist scum , who the hell decided they have power over us in any way?
commented 2019-02-24 03:03:28 -0500
Andrew Stephenson since when the hell do you decide what is acceptable in Canada? And who said being a nationalist of any color is not acceptable or bad in any way? Globalists are scumbags.

Lisa I have delt with a similar phenomina before in my role as troll bouncer on various MGTOW sites….the troll is actually an avatar of a witches coven (women’s commitee) “my name is Legion for we are many”…the tag team tries to wear you down playing Hydra’s many heads then whack a mole…

But it cannot change a fundamental weakness….KHARMA….the ruts left by the wheels of a cart drawn by an ox.

Andrew’s motivation is that (oh God Jordan Peterson please help me in the selection of appropriate pronoun)…ummm…oh fuck it….. skip the pronoun….Andrew/Andrea has very few and very predictable techniques in the martial art of rhetoric and Justin should waste confiscated tax dollars on a better troll….I recommend that Justin fire Andrew for failure to deliver results.

Andrew has to have motivation other than just his own entertainment. I mean seriously, he/she is a very strange creature. Seems to hate everything including himherself. She’s OCD or something. Very obsessive, compulsive. Inverts everything. I say, there are all colours of the rainbow in the convoy and yellow vesters, he says they are not accepted in Canada.

I don’t think Andrew understands the definition of NATIONALIST. Guess what Andrew, it isn’t a bad word. Grow up.
Flag waver, super patriot, THAT’S ME and that describes the millions of Canadians who have come here to share that love of ALL things CANADA.
You got a problem with that? Then I have a problem with you.

Andrew this one is epic, and it pertains to #6 on my list.
Man, the liberals are toast."

I doubt a lot of Liberals would take anything but glee at seeing one of Harper’s old henchmen get shut down.

The problem here is you’re preaching to the converted – people who always hated Trudeau and merely sought a reason why. Left wing voters consistently place climate change, protecting ourselves from Trump, and healthcare as the big issues facing Canada. (all of which Trudeau remains fairly strong at – the Right has plausible odds at 2/3 but their lack of climate change strategy is problematic) The hyperbole about border crossers and debt haven’t gained any traction whatsoever.

Glenn Craig:
“Andrew…..he declared Canada a “post national state” without lawfull mandate to do so and proceeded with policy to that end including giving the proceeds of an enormous national mortgage to globalists contrary to the national interests of Canada (which is a soverign nation and NOT a post national non-entity)”

He declared it, but has not dramatically changed the trajectory of Canada’s foreign or domestic policy over the trends of the past 30 years. As has been pointed out by others, he talks a lot more than he does.

“Without lawfull mandate and without the consent of the people of Canada he invited all manner of unvetted undesireables to flaunt and scoff Canada’s immigration laws without concern for cost, burden on social resource, or displacement and grievous inconvenience to people who are law abiding Canadians and Canadian aspirants”

The immigrant “crisis” originates largely beyond our borders. It’s not so much Trudeau welcoming them, but rather Trump ejecting them. They are not flaunting the immigration rules – the majority are being deported after their hearings.

“What about the black ,brown, red, and yellow nationalists? "
What about them? That’s not any more acceptable in Canada, than white nationalism. Whataboutitism is a deflection.

Let’s examine these one by one.
“1. Cutting off a country’s ability to work, while raising taxes”
This has not occurred. The oilpatch has suffered somewhat, under circumstances predating Trudeau, but even Alberta’s net-created jobs under Trudeau. Not a lot, but positive regardless (Labour force survey: Oct 2015: 2304k employed, 1894k full time; Jan 2019, 2326k employed, 1904k full time). Outside of Alberta job creation has surged- Ontario’s created hundreds of thousands. So has Quebec. Tax hikes are not treasonous.

“2. Increasing the debt beyond any generations reach”
Every prime minister save Chretien has increased the debt. Our current debt to GDP isn’t particularly high by historical standards (it was twice current values in the early 90s). Deficits aren’t treasonous.

“3. Open borders”
The borders aren’t open. The border-crossers are being held pending trial; the system is backlogged due too their numbers but they are not getting a free pass. Being a destination for refugees isn’t treason, especially if it’s a crisis beyond your own border.

“4. Uncontrolled open migration of people who want Canada’s free stuff, until it runs out, (we can’t even properly accommodate the current numbers)”
See #3.

“5. Signing a compact with the UN in which Trudeau has promised on behalf of the people of Canada without consultation, to make legislation to force on us, UN rules for who, when, from where and how many migrants we accept…….as well as other global directives. Effectively stripping this country of it self determination.”
The compact isn’t legally binding, and largely restates policies that are already in place as part of our basic human rights laws. We already have an international obligation to accept refugees regardless of country of origin, and as a country who already accepts more immigrants than any other, we’re likely above their targets anyway. It is a tool for virtue signaling, both for and against, and is trivial otherwise. Signing an international accord isn’t treason.

“6. And lastly the absolute corruption in business dealings, even buying the pipeline was a scam which is coming out soon for all to see. Allowing foreign interference, illegal donations, pay for play etc etc. " "

Political scandals are not treason, and corruption is a separate charge (and premature at this point, given that nobody actually seems to know what’s happening there). Every government, ever, has suffered some form of “pay to play”. The entire lobby industry is based upon it.

None of this is treason, which is very specifically defined as a conspired or actual attempt to overthrow your own country’s government (something that’s hard to do if you’re the elected head of said government). You may not like some of these policies, but they’re not treason. If SNC goes anywhere, that’s the only actual crime here, and that’s probably obstruction of justice, and likely falls under parliamentary privilege, not treason.

1. Cutting off a country’s ability to work, while raising taxes
2. Increasing the debt beyond any generations reach
3. Open borders
4. Uncontrolled open migration of people who want Canada’s free stuff, until it runs out, (we can’t even properly accommodate the current numbers)

Is that enough for you Andrew? If the government is triggered by the environment in Canada right ow, they only have themselves to blame for it. It falls on them. Not our coat, it doesn’t belong to us.

Canadians feel BETRAYED. We have a right to feel BETRAYED. Its the governments fault that they are in this situation with the people they are supposed to be working for. They have forsaken us. Don’t pin your projection on us. We take no ownership.

I warn you, that if there is any ‘incident’ we won’t be wearing it. Try as the government might to arrange something to make us look bad. It won’t be our doing it will be theirs. That is as much trust as we have in this government. ZERO. They have proven and said to our faces repeatedly, that we don’t matter and they hate us. They make false statements about us and its clear how they feel. They have turned against half of the country.

As Glenn said below, “Problem is they get to write their own performance evaluation and consider any viewer attempt to do so a social injustice or a hate crime.”

Screw right off Andrew, screw off.

“Edward Jobin commented 1 day ago
It is not due to lack of education or information that these poor bastards cannot differentiate between a “white nationalist” and a nationalist who’s skin color is white. It’s difficult to make any meaningful distinction when your head firmly planted up your ass. "

The White Nationalists themselves are responsible for this one, they deliberately obfuscate to maintain legal cover and plausible deniability for supporters of their cause.

Michael Wernick, in his opening statement at the SNC Lavalin hearings by the House of Commons justice committee said, “I’m worried that someone is going to be shot in this country this year during the political campaign”.

This baiter, is Canada’s top bureaucrat, someone who is hired to do his job in a non partisan manner. You really can’t get more irresponsible than that. It tops anything that any frustrated Canadian has ever said. That comment was based on words from ignored and annoyed Canadians, twisting and taking them out of context to fabricate a narrative to brand us all as something we are not.

This is a ‘stitch up’ and a hit job on half of Canada, by our own government. I smell another hoax in the wind or maybe worse. I wonder when he last lunched with Butts?If anything happens its on them, I would put money on it. But we’ll be wearing it.

Andrew Stephenson if you or any of those left wing bigots actually did some hard work in a trade in Alberta you would know that there are many many non whites working in the industry and many truckers are dark skinned. At the store i work in when i work evenings i see delivery drivers in Receiving and have never seen a White Driver in over 3 years. Granted i do not always work in the evening maybe 35% of the time.

Why is that it is wrong to point out the truth and call for action on it? Trudeau is absolutely treasonous and should be held to a high standard and should receive all the law provides as a penalty.

What does pointing out treason have to do with the convoy participants being “racist”?

Oh, right. It was just Andrew doing another distractionary drive by.

Why is it that anti-white ideology isn’t racist? Apparently if you’re of white European decent, you can’t be the object of racism because you’re the majority in Western democratic nations. Following that line of logic, If you’re a black person living anywhere in sub-Saharan Africa, you can’t be the object of racism either. If you’re ethnic Oriental living anywhere in China, Japan, Laos, Cambodia, etc. you can be the object of racism either. As a Metis, am I half racist and half the object of racism? So much logical inconsistency. It boggles the mind.
