Nolte: Truck Drivers Are the Atlas that Finally Shrugged  

You don’t have to thank these guys. In fact, they’re perfectly content living in a world where no one gives them a thought. That’s how they’re built. If one quality defines most truck drivers, it’s that they just want to be left alone. They’re loners comfortable in their own company and eager to escape into the cab of their rig where the world makes sense, where the complications and unnecessary dramas that define modern life don’t exist. All that exists is hot coffee, a loyal dog, the radio, the companionship of the like-minded at the next stop, and the road.

We need truck drivers a whole lot more than they need us, and they know it. The leverage they hold over our society has always been there, but because truck drivers are men and not babies, they don’t use it. Instead, they just go about the business of going about their business. But if you don’t allow them to go about their business…

Guys like this, guys who just want to be left alone, those are the last guys you want to push around to the point where they push back.

And now the world’s truck drivers, especially in fascist Canada, have had enough, and now they’re shrugging. Brother, are they shrugging.

And can you blame them?

You don’t need a vaccine passport to attend the Oscars, but you do need one to be a truck driver.

On what planet is that okay?

Only silver-spooned bullies like Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden live on that planet.

And never forget that unlike the Brownshirts in Black Lives Matter and Antifa, these men are laying something on the line, something real. These are working people, not professional activists, criminals, and students. These men have families, mortgages, a nut to crack every month. But they’re still out there without the burning and looting that define the modern left. The risks are also real — crippling fines, imprisonment, truck confiscation, a fascist state eager for violence — but their cause is the most righteous of causes in the history of man: the right to be left alone.

Who is John Galt?

Now we know.

    Not the vets. Not the keyboard commandos. Not the bakers, the bankers or the candlestick makers.

    The truckers. At Concord it was the farmers. For each century, the most common denominator.

    I liked those 3 sentences so much, I just thought I’d copy and paste them in the comments solely for my viewing pleasure. #HONKHONK

    Push has not yet come to shove. So far the Canadian regime has only issued threats. All of these have been ignored by the truckers. Threats from a regime that are not backed up by force are toothless, and will be seen as such—not just by Canadians but by the entire world. No regime could survive such a public humiliation. Canadians are known for being “the nicest folks”. That reputation will be put to the test.

    About farmers: Jefferson believed them to be the backbone of any Republic. This put him vehemently against Hamilton, who believed that America’s future was in banking, trade and industrialization. Jefferson knew that it was farmers who made up the legions of the Roman Republic, a government that conquered much of the known world.

    And thus it has ever been. The genuine,real people of the world who get their hands dirty vs the effete and finely manicured who hold them in disdain (and masked).
    Fun thought:stuff every Western “leader” who agreed to unleash a bioweapon on their people into a custom trailer with large picture windows and haul their candy asses up Wolf Creek Pass in winter. They would sh*t themselves lifeless,and the world would be better for it.

    Maybe an entire new generation of John Galts has been unwittingly created by the Covidiot tyrants. We only ever hear/see the spoiled, malcontents of antifa and burn, loot, and murder. These kids appear to be some very fine young people. So reassuring to see the pride they have in our flag and country. Fortunately, these kids are learning an extremely valuable lesson at a tender age, concerning the dangers of an all-powerful government, determined to subjugate them. It’s a start.
    Taken from the following link: “According to Oakes, after the high school students left the building during the walkout, they were reportedly locked out of the building, with teachers placing signs against the windows with “disparaging remarks” on them.”
    Can you imagine the pettiness of the “teachers” to resort to such an infantile tactic? Yet, we pay ’em to destroy our children. https://tinyurl.com/muj3r6ej

      I pay em but only by threat of violence, and I don’t even use the stuff.
      We taught our son how to learn on his own, and my wife and I have spent 25 years showing other people worldwide how to do so.
      The public schools haven’t been used for education for several decades at least. Even when I was imprisoned there in the 60’s and 70’s it was horrendous and getting worse by the day.
      They are mostly used as daycare centers. You know, “free” childcare, so the parents can do other stuff.

    If the multitudes have driven all the way to Ottawa only to ask politely if they may have their freedom back, this is going to turn very ugly… for the drivers. The Ceausescus & Co. were not prepared for the events that swept Europe in 1989 and the people overwhelmed the official and reactive punishing fist. Initially there was bloodshed but it didn’t last long. The people’s victory occurred when the police and soldiers joined in solidarity. In Canada many of the cops and soldiers are behaving quite thuggish. There will be violence. But for how long and which side will prevail? Ted Koppel produced an excellent 48 minute documentary in the aftermath of the Romanian uprising and the overthrow of Ceausescu. I can’t imagine how the Canadian uprising is going to avoid a breaking point void of violence. This is worth watching. https://odysee.com/@tony652s:c/The-Ceaucescu-Moment:c

    Dr. Robert Malone, the guy who was interviewed by Joe Rogan and which caused the septic tank to rise, has written this eloquent letter to the people of Canada. https://rwmalonemd.substack.com/p/open-letter-to-the-canadian-truckers

    Oddly enough the best source for up to date info on the stand firm Canuks is youtube. There are a number of live streams for Ottawa and the Ambassador Bridge as well as 30 minute to hours fresh postings. Here the police are pushing back the people an hour ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWsE1ilUS1U

      A great blog, refreshed frequently, is smalldeadanimals.com. Well worth watching, if you want to know what really is happening in Canada. It’s my go-to to find news that I cannot find anywhere else.

    I have sought the opinions of Malone and Peter McCullough throughout this plandemic. They have consistently presented as being sober and reasoned, with nothing to gain by proffering a message of caution vis a vis the Wuhan virus ‘vaccine.” Indeed, they have paid a cost, as the mendacious, established medical industry has done everything it can do to discredit and marginalize them, ala Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals.

    Malone’s letter reads as a tailored reiteration of the speech he gave in D.C. during the “Defeat the Mandate” rally last January. And why not? The truth remains the truth, no matter when and to whom one is relating it. Actually, it becomes all the more important as the number of worldwide vaxx injuries/deaths continues to climb while being simultaneously ignored by the aforementioned medical complex.

    Malone comes off somewhat naive, however, if he truly believes that those responsible for all of this misery care the slightest bit about the suffering they have engendered. He writes:

    Integrity is a commitment to truth, in what you say, how you live, and how you treat others.

    Dignity flows from respect, for ourselves, for each other, and for the world we live in.

    Community is what binds us together, to each other, and gives our lives purpose and meaning.

    Other than some sanctimonious bloviating about “being in this all together”, I’ve seen not a single incidence of the three truisms he cites from any one of TPTB. If anything, I am even more convinced that these powers are Bolsheviks at heart, and will do whatever is required to achieve their dystopic, “perfected” world order. For them, there truly is “only the struggle.”

    I continue to have great respect for Drs. Robert Malone, Peter McCullough and all other providers who have kept their integrity and oaths to “First do no harm.” I pray we are somehow able to emerge from this created catastrophe without having become hopelessly splintered as a society.

    This little short tribute fits my profile very well, exactly Why I took up driving at an early age. When I figured out that was the occupation where I was pretty much left alone, and was responsible for my own successes and failures. After 3.5 million plus, (when I quit counting) I moved to another occupation when continuing regulation and control over everything you had been responsible for was now mandated to be reported to someone else, but you were still at fault if things went wrong, but no accolades for your successes.
    So far this has been a warning to quit pushing. I have no doubt the ferals of all nations will eventually have their way over the “just want to be left alone”. When the “just want to be left alone” finally do push back, you can bet your country will be closed for business. Nothing will move, for any reason. Welcome to the 1800’s.

    Middle class America is no less violent than any other people. They seem passive because they’re results oriented. They rise not out of blood frenzy but to solve the otherwise insoluble. Their methods of choice are good will, cooperation, forbearance, negotiation and finally, appeasement, roughly in that order. Only when these fail to end the abuse do they revert to blowback. And they do so irretrievably. Once the course is set and the outcome defined, doubt is put aside. The middle class is known, condemned actually, for carrying out violence with the efficiency of an industrial project where bloody destruction at any scale is not only in play, it’s a metric. Remorse is left for the next generation, they’ll have the leisure for it. We’d like to believe this is merely dark speculation. History says it isn’t.” Remus
