CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE? Given that Twitter has suddenly exploded with the same information I published early this morning, I suppose it's asking a bit much for people to credit where they learned it all. Am I allowed to be a bit pissed as to how everyone has just discovered all of this when I posted it at 4 a.m. this morning? Le *sigh* ...
TUPOC director William Komer denies any connection, association or affiliation with the vulgar, racist neo-Nazis, bigots and white supremacists of the "Freedom Convoy" movement:
Wait for it ... wait for it ... wait for it ... ah, there we go:

THE GORGE ALSO RISES: At the bottom of that GiveSendGo page is a link to a 2-minute YouTube extolling the magnificence and humanitarianism of the Freedom Convoy siege and occupation of Ottawa. It is one of the most pandering and nauseating snippets of video you've ever seen.
JUST TO BE CLEAR: Make sure you understand what's about to go down here. Having assured everyone that TUPOC has nothing to do with the "Freedom Convoy" in any way, the bottom of that GiveSendGo page makes it nad-grindingly clear that this is exactly what TUPOC is all about, advertising a full two weeks of Convoy-pimping propaganda with guest speakers:

We told you so.
HOLY. FUCKING. SHIT. TUPOC is running at least one other GiveSendGo fundraiser, this one allegedly in support of indigenous peoples and truth and reconciliation:

How many other grifts are these slimebags running? Words fail me.
P.S. TUPOC fundraising off of the decades of suffering of Canada's indigenous population is particularly galling given that "Freedom Convoy" supporters were publicly told to, well, fuck off and not insert themselves into the Pope's visit:
