VILE: A freedom protester was mowed down by an SUV late last night. Suspect has been arrested. Trudeau vilified these peaceful protests, and now this happens. Shocking. pic.twitter.com/G08LWmExV6— Keean Bexte (@TheRealKeean) February 5, 2022
This is the full statement by @wpgpolice Constable Rob Carver detailing the hit-and-run targetting #FreedomConvoyCanada2022 protestors at 9:10 PM last night near Broadway and Memorial. pic.twitter.com/cWmDR1J4fx— Cosmin Dzsurdzsa (@cosminDZS) February 5, 2022
For obvious reasons, the “journalists” aren’t obsessively covering this story this morning. They know real news when they see it. Every day is 1/6 now.
“Four people taking part in a convoy protest in Manitoba’s capital city were injured and rushed to hospital after a car plowed into the crowd.
The man alleged to be the driver of the vehicle, Dave Zegarac, was taken into custody an hour later after a brief struggle with police. A white jeep can be seen hitting one person, before accelerating and hitting three more. …”
Do you remember Waukesha?
Waukesha didn’t fit the narrative about “far right domestic extremism.” If they didn’t bother to really cover a hate crime as horrific as Waukesha, you aren’t going to even hear about this in coastal media.
Note: Now that the media landscape has changed so dramatically and coastal media has shrunk in relative size to the rightwing media bubble, the gatekeepers can’t really hide stories like this anymore from the public. In fact, stories like this can be elevated and drive the news cycle in the future, as more people will be watching Tucker Carlson than the competition. The power to set the news and determine which issues and stories are important is shifting to the Right which has steadily built up its own media apparatus. It might not be on CNN, but no one is watching CNN anyway.
