I told you this part wasn’t going to be pretty. The collapse of fascist ideological movements and fanatical death cults never is. The New Normal is proving to be no exception.
After three weeks of non-violent civil disobedience outside the Canadian parliament in Ottawa by truckers and other Canadian citizens struggling to uphold their right to not be subjected to forced “vaccination,” Justin Trudeau unleashed the goon squads. Thousands of militarized riot police (and other unidentified heavily-armed operatives) swarmed the area, surrounded the protesters, started breaking into trucks and arresting people, and beating them with batons and the butts of their rifles.
In one particularly ugly episode, the New Normal stormtroopers rode their horses directly into a crowd of non-violent protesters, trampling an elderly lady with a walker. She had just finished saying something to the police along the lines of “you break my heart … this is about peace, and love, and happiness.” Then they knocked her down and rode their horses over her.
Despite an abundance of video evidence clearly depicting exactly what happened, the Ottawa Police tried to spin it this way …
Here’s an overhead photo of the incident …
The big red arrow (courtesy of The Marie Oakes) points to the lady’s walker, or the alleged “horse-assaulting bicycle.” Presumably, the face of the gentlemen above her also caused the horse “to trip,” or was in the process of causing the horse “to trip,” at the moment that this photo was taken.
And that wasn’t all. Oh no, far from it. The “show of force” was just getting started. After all, this was not a “mostly peaceful” outbreak of rioting, looting, and arson. This was non-violent civil disobedience, with children’s bouncy castles, makeshift saunas, honking, dancing, illegal barbecuing, and other forms of “terrorist” activity, which had to be crushed with an iron fist.
On Saturday, the goon squads broke out the stun grenades, the pepper spray, and the big wooden sticks. By Sunday morning, they were shooting people with “non-lethal, mid-range impact weapons.” Tow truck operators in horror-movie ski masks were brought in to haul away the big rigs.
Before he turned the goon squads loose on Friday, Trudeau invoked the Emergencies Act, suspending the Canadian constitution, which he had already suspended back in 2020 due to the “apocalyptic pandemic,” which is why the protesters were protesting in the first place. Parliament was scheduled to debate his authority to declare another “state of emergency,” but, of course, the debate was abruptly suspended due to the massive “police operation” that his invocation of the Act had enabled.
Acting under the Emergencies Act, he immediately cancelled the right of assembly, outlawed the protests, and started threatening to kill people’s dogs and take away their kids. Then he and his fascist New Normal lieutenants started freezing the bank accounts of anyone and everyone even vaguely connected to the trucker protest. According to a Bloomberg report:
“The emergency orders require virtually every participant in the Canadian financial system — banks, investment firms, credit unions, loan companies, securities dealers, fundraising platforms and payment and clearing services — to determine whether they possess or control property of a person who’s attending an illegal protest or providing supplies to demonstrators.”
And, as if all that wasn’t fascist enough, Ottawa’s police chief has made it clear that, once the “crackdown” is finally over, they will hunt down anyone involved in the protests, arrest them and charge them with “criminal offenses,” subject them to “financial sanctions,” and otherwise destroy their lives and families.
The crackdown in Ottawa is hardly an aberration. As my readers might recall, New Normal Germany outlawed protesting against the New Normal (i.e., the new official ideology) back in September of 2020, and the German police have been absolutely brutal. Anyone deemed a “Covid denier” is subject to surveillance by Germany’s Intelligence services. The US Department of Homeland Security designates us “domestic violent extremists.” Same story in Australia, France, Belgium, The Netherlands, and assorted other countries.
I have been describing the New Normal as a new form of totalitarianism (or fascism, if you prefer) for the past two years, and I have been documenting it from the very beginning (see, e.g., these Twitter threads from March 2020 and April 2020, which the OffGuardian editors have preserved for posterity). It has been there all along, right out in the open, but rendered invisible by the official Covid narrative.
The official narrative is rapidly dissolving, rendering the fascism of the New Normal visible. This is happening now because those of us who have seen it from the beginning — and have been resisting it all along — have held out long enough to run out the clock. GloboCap can’t keep the narrative going, so all they have left is brute fascist force.
We need to make GloboCap deploy that force, and to shine a big, bright spotlight on it, as the truckers and protesters in Ottawa have just done. In case anyone is confused about the tactic, it’s called classic non-violent civil disobedience. I described it in a recent column:
“In other words, we need to make GloboCap (and its minions) go openly totalitarian … because it can’t. If it could, it would have done so already. Global capitalism cannot function that way. Going openly totalitarian will cause it to implode … no, not global capitalism itself, but this totalitarian version of it. In fact, this is starting to happen already. It needs the simulation of ‘reality,’ and ‘democracy,’ and ‘normality,’ to keep the masses docile. So we need to attack that simulation. We need to hammer on it until it cracks, and the monster hiding within in appears. That is the weakness of the system … New Normal totalitarianism will not work if the masses perceive it as totalitarianism, as a political/ideological program, rather than as a response to a deadly pandemic.”
The official narrative is dead, or dying. The Covidian Cult is coming apart. No one but the most fanatical New Normals believes there is any real justification for imposing mandatory “vaccination,” “quarantine camps,” segregation of “the Unvaccinated,” or any of the other “Covid restrictions.” “The virus” is no longer an excuse for mindlessly following ridiculous orders and persecuting those of us who refuse.
Apocalyptic Pandemic Theater is over. It is a purely political fight from now on.
Ottawa is not the end. It is just the beginning. Protests and other forms of civil disobedience are growing all around the world … yes, even here in New Normal Germany. That does not mean it is time to relax. On the contrary, it is time to step up the pressure. It is time to make the monster show itself, in all its naked fascist ugliness, and to force everyone to pick a side.
There are only two sides … fascism or freedom.

“Going openly totalitarian will cause it to implode … no, not global capitalism itself, but this totalitarian version of it.”
At this point, the ghouls still need to use clever rebranding and appealing propaganda, especially when it’s directed towards the young. Fascists, will never reveal their true intentions as they must remain attractive smiley and youthful, particularly as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” transitions the worldwide economy
from “neo-liberalism to neo-feudalism.” Don’t worry kids, this type of feudalism will have a ton of exciting fun gadgets: a cool tattoo tracking device, or perhaps those “everyone must have” invasive hip neural links manipulated by the “woke surveillance state.” Anyway, remember what the Orangeman said so eloquently and Biden is proving to be true: “the best is yet to come.”

It is as though they are trying to pointedly demonstrate exactly what a fascist totalitarian police state is.
Get the banks to freeze accounts of people supporting a lawful and peaceful demonstration/movement. Then get them to freeze the accounts of people “related” to those people. Release names of people donating to the truckers in national media. Why not destroy yet more lives and businesses ?
Our group of seniors sent an all-party plea for sanity to every member of Parliament and the Senate attempting to provide a context for the truckers protesters and their millions of supporters around the world.
So far we have received three (3) non-form letter replies. One from the BLOC which was against invoking the Emergencies Act as Quebec has a bad taste in its mouth from the last episode in which papa Trudeau unleashed his police droogies on ordinary citizens, rounding up “dissidents” pretty much at random based on a Clouseau-esque “usual suspects” rationale. One from the ruling Liberals saying we’ll get back at you.
The third was a Liberal MP’s weak ENDORSEMENT of the actions of this out of control thugocracy while again weakly acknowledging we had a point that the shit-show was sort of crazy-like – but hey, the truckers are “penetrated by foreigners and white supremacists”. My head is still spinning. I pray this does not represent the mindset of most pols at this point.
This seems simple to us. If the government actually believes this peaceful protest presents an existential threat to the Canadian democratic order it should have the guts to just shut it down – which it certainly has the police resources to do and is apparently doing.
But subverting the banks, media and other private sector actors to engage in economic and social terrorism is clearly designed to cast a “freeze” on lawful, peaceful dissent now and for the future and habituate citizens to a permanent fascist government.
Reblogged this on Declaration Of Opinion.
Thank you CJ. Yes, Ottawa was the beginning. Those truckers gave me hope I haven’t had in 2 years (more, actually, probably since Sept11 2001). Genie is out of the bottle now.
Does Trudeau have a plan for the “day after”? Is he just going to announce that “we have subdued the fascists (meaning the freedom seekers) and now there will be no more rights for anyone”? Seems like this could go anywhere.

Keep hammering them, CJ.
The Naked Face of New Normal Fascism is the Masked Face of New Abnormal Fascism. I see what you did there!
As usual, I again confess that your ongoing analysis of the GloboCap Megadeath Virus(es) of Doom Scamdemic reduces me to the ‘umble status of “dittohead”.
A friendly word of advice though: if you carry on like this, you’ll never be invited back to “Counterpunch”.
>Canadian citizens struggling to uphold their right to not be subjected to forced “vaccination,”
The right not to be vaccinated does not exist, so it can’t be upheld.
sure it can, if the people performing forced “vaccinations” suffer a series of unfortunate accidents, involving axes intersecting their heads.
insert standard Alexandr Solzhenitsyn quote here. you know the one — axes, clubs, and pokers, etc.

Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and SECURITY OF THE PERSON and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.
So, Mr. Literal, there is no specific right not to be flogged with a dead cat. You kind of have to be capable of minimal abstract thought to read it into the provisions of the Charter. Suggestion: Do NOT consider a career in law.

Thinking beyond the “freedom” protests against the new normal directives of the pandemic, here’s a quote from Nietzsche that reminds us that the workers will remain anything but free, and that socialism is no savior, even after the covid insanity is behind us:
Of course, nowadays there really is no place to seek to be a master, to be free, such as there still was in his day. We are stuck in machine of techno-industrialism and there is no future of freedom beyond it unless it collapses. How many of us would really want that to happen? Prepare to be assimilated into the transhuman borg world of the future unless the machine can no longer keep itself supplied with energy and materials needed for its sustenance and growth. Oh, but hold on a moment: There me be some hope for freedom, or at least reduced totalitarian control, in those parts of the world which will almost surely fail to be able to keep the machine going, because they never really had it going in the first place…the so-called “developing” world.
Have a look at this article:
about how the machine could break down at any moment, and perhaps already has.
Didn’t anyone ever tell Nietzsche that an “aphorism” is a sentence or two? Interestingly, he points out the currently “politically incorrect” fact that the Chinese seem perfectly suited to the transhuman agenda.
Remember Desmet’s theory that perhaps 30% of the populations are completely, hopelessly brainwashed, 40% go along to get along, 30% are awake. It’s that 40% who are the tipping point, dangerous in their current allegiances but also representing the critical mass to counter the insanity if they awaken.
Consider also who are the real & present danger: it’s not so much the governments but rather it is the people who support them and willingly – blindly, stupidly – carry out their orders.
And let’s emphasize the Canadian banks’ willingness to turn on their customers – instantly – report them and freeze their accounts. Even before the so-called “Emergency” Act was ratified. That Canada is under Fascistic rule is beyond debate. Never again should Canadians – or any people anywhere – be confused about the modus operandi of the financial industry. All roads lead to it – internationally.
It is important that the horse was uninjured. Very important.
CJ Hopkins is an Upright and Moral Man.
With the right amount of bravery (guts).
I agree that this will playout in one direction as it must, in reality.
Though it should be done using Goods timeline, and Not Evils timeline.
Also kudos to Zygmunt Bauman, a Brilliant Mind and Moral Man; who told us this was coming…
Panopticon, Network of Interlocking and Overlapping Authorities.
Genuinely baffled as to why there is so much Dem support for trampling the truckers (literally). Is it the Dems love and worship of the vaccine that thinks anyone who is a threat to the vaccine should be destroyed? This is insanity.
John Cleese, British writer, actor and tall person:
“The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender.” The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France’s white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country’s military capability.
Italy has increased the alert level from “Shout Loudly and Excitedly” to “Elaborate Military Posturing.” Two more levels remain: “Ineffective Combat Operations” and “Change Sides.”
The Germans have increased their alert state from “Disdainful Arrogance” to “Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs.” They also have two higher levels: “Invade a Neighbour” and “Lose.”
Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.
The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.
Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from “No worries” to “She’ll be alright, Mate.” Two more escalation levels remain: “Crikey! I think we’ll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!” and “The barbie is cancelled.” So far, no situation has ever warranted use of the final escalation level.”
Very good and on the mark.
Humor is important and usually is the truth.
Something to keep in mind:
On December 2021, the UN voted 130-2 on a motion to condemn celebrations of Nazism. Only the U.S. and Ukraine voted against it. The EU and UK abstained.
I truly believe that you’ve to hand the proverbial rope to people to hang themselves with. However, that only works if enough people are willing to let evil show its true colors in their resistance against it. The Canadian truckers did just that. Nonetheless, most Canadians showed their cowardice. Learn from the countries under the former Soviet Empire: They sat down and paralyzed their countries to free themselves. We must stop supporting the financial backbone of the Western failed-fixed system. Don’t go to work…
You are entitled to your opinion, but it appears that you bought into the propaganda machine.
The right created the left…
Old World Order Power structure (Kings, Emporors, Czars etc).
Were brought down, not by so called Revolutions, but as a transformation into the New World Order; from vertical governance to horizontal governance.
This gave a cold war senario, excuse to build weapons and structure technologies.
Then The captured nations were set (free?), to enable a time frame of behavioral structure….all this leading up to Agenda 21, where everyone stands at this moment.
This was abrief overview, but I hope you all get the point.
