Ah, the irony.

Over at this tweet by Glen McGregor, Glen presents us with the video of a "Freedom Convoy" protester who apparently wants absolution from the Canadian Tire store that he and a bunch of violent yobs invaded the day before .. it does not go well, but here's the irony.

Repeatedly, Mr. Convoy Man insists that they're not all like that -- it was just a small fraction of them, maybe 10%, not representative at all, don't hold them all responsible for the actions of a few bad apples.

Do you see the irony?

Effectively, Mr. Convoy Man is begging the store manager to not tar with a wide brush the appalling actions of ... a fringe minority. That's "fringe minority" ... the very phrase the entire Freedom Convoy mocked roundly, until it became time for them to insist they were the good guys, and it was just a fringe minority of them who were the troublemakers.

They have such short memories, do they not?
