Okay, it's just one member of the Squad so far...
But what a time to be alive!
In this tweet, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar thrashed an editor over at the Ottawa Citizen/Sun for sharing a story on the Stella Luna Gelato Cafe in Ottawa because the owner gave $250 to the Canadian trucker convoy through GiveSendGo.
The liberal Democrat labeled a tweet from Alison Mah, an editor with the Ottawa Citizen/Sun, as "unconscionable." Mah's tweet, which is now hidden from nonfollowers, discussed a report from her news outlet about a shop owner who expressed having "regrets" after donating $250 to the "truck convoy," saying she thought it was a "peaceful, grassroots movement." The tweet also said she "made the donation Feb. 5, when police were calling the protest 'volatile and dangerous.'"
Omar rightly points out that this is harassment. It is, in all senses of the word, "unconscionable."
Journalists are supposed to speak truth to power. Instead, it seems they are now employed as agents of the power-hungry government, forcing citizens to recant their sins for, as Trudeau literally said, "unacceptable views."
And as you can see from Omar's tweet, the editor of the Ottawa Citizen/Sun made her tweets protected so you can't see them. Authoritarians hate it when they are called out for their evils!
Omar went on:
We are now getting to the point of the totalitarian experiment that the most leftist members of the U.S. Congress are agreeing with the most conservative members.
Isn't it about time we agree something has gone horribly, horribly wrong in Canada?
