Now, there have been a lot of funny things we’ve seen in covering protests over the past couple of years.
But we’ve already had some funny moments in the Freedom Convoy protests — with some provided by the liberal media. One was when a CBC host tried to claim that Russians were behind the protests. That had to be an instant classic right out of the Russia collusion book from the liberals in the United States.
The CBC suggests "Russian actors" are behind the #TruckersForFreedom convoy. Seriously. #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/a6sQyWtKkx— True North (@TrueNorthCentre) January 29, 2022
We also saw one leftist counter-protester get completely upstaged when she tried to claim that the trucker protesters were “white nationalists.”
This is by far the best moment of the day. 👇 pic.twitter.com/1QeIY3cQVE— Ezra Levant 🍁 (@ezralevant) January 29, 2022
But on Sunday, we saw the person who we may just have to give the Oscar for Worst Swan Dive While Faking Getting Hit by a Freedom Convoy truck. Now, as far as acting jobs go, this is truly awful. First, he blocks the truck with the Trump flag on it and then pretends that it hits him as he rolls off of it and falls to the ground. It’s not even close to looking real. This is the left — all in one fake nutshell.

The immediate ridicule is marvelous. He even picked up his head a little to see if people were watching as he lay on the ground. Then when everyone laughed at him and his farcical effort, he got up and started yelling at the driver. Sorry dude, no one bought your theatrics. You’re a lousy actor. Take the “L.”

This is a classic leftist tactic, we see it all the time with BLM but, usually, they’re a little better with the acting. Fortunately, this was all on camera and they let him know it. Or you know he would be alleging this to media and it would be all over as “Freedom Convoy Runs Over Counter-Protester!!” They’ll do anything to try to find violence in this protest, to satisfy the political narrative the government would like to push. This guy went to the Jussie Smollett school of political acting and just like Jussie, he failed as well. Team Trudeau liberals must be getting hard up if they’re going to this kind of a gambit.
But when they talk about “violence” from the truckers and other protesters, this is about all they have, which shows how baseless those claims are.
Even Jussie Smollett would be embarrassed by this performance. https://t.co/4TXBLKzHBg— Rita Panahi (@RitaPanahi) February 7, 2022
