Anti-Vax Trucker Convoy Is Brainchild Of QAnon Leader

The Guardian reports:

The so-called “freedom convoy” – which departed for Ottawa on 23 January – was the brainchild of James Bauder, an admitted conspiracy theorist who has endorsed the QAnon movement and called Covid-19 “the biggest political scam in history”. Bauder’s group, Canada Unity, contends that vaccine mandates and passports are illegal under Canada’s constitution, the Nuremberg Code and a host of other international conventions.

Another group, Action4Canada, launched legal challenges to mask and vaccine mandates. In one 400-page court filing, they allege that the “false pronouncement of a Covid-19 ‘pandemic’” was carried out, at least in part, by Bill Gates and a “New World (Economic) Order” to facilitate the injection of 5G-enabled microchips into the population. Both groups are listed as “participating groups” on the Canada Unity website, and sent vehicles and personnel to join the convoy.

Read the full article. There’s much more. Action4Canada’s leader was in a ten-day COVID-related coma until a few days ago.

First, a reminder about this nutbag:

The so-called “freedom convoy” – which departed for Ottawa on 23 January – was the brainchild of James Bauder, an admitted conspiracy theorist who has endorsed the QAnon movement and called Covid-19 “the biggest political scam in history”.

Bauder’s group, Canada Unity, contends that vaccine mandates and passports are illegal under Canada’s constitution, the Nuremberg Code and a host of other international conventions.

Since they have arrived in Ottawa, the extreme elements of the protest have been visible: neo-Nazi and Confederate flags were seen flying, QAnon logos were emblazoned on trucks and signs and stickers were pasted to telephone poles around the occupied area bear Trudeau’s face, reading: “Wanted for crimes against humanity.”

And below is today’s update.

    1. Hello Polly. Yes but it worries me how quickly the angry nut jobs can be whipped into doing something anti-social and uncivil with little prompting. The ones fueling this were conspiracy theory nuts and die-hard racists. They shut that area down for three weeks. Did not care what they were doing to harm others. Now with Putin about to unleash a full cyberwar on everyone I am already seeing a swell of bots on the Disqus comment places. Have you gotten the kiss bots that are flooding the commenters with likes? No one knows what that is about. I am sure the interwebs are going to be tricky places in the next few days.

  1. Scottie, this fellow was the first one arrested. He was charged, released with the condition that he leave Ottawa immediately, and has been ordered not to have anything to do with any kind of organizing again. His words upon his release? “I just want to go home” . . . It sounds like the wind has been taken out of his sails. We can hope.

    1. Hello Carmen. Thank you for the info. I really hope you are correct. I really wonder how long it will be until he breaks that promise and gets back into stirring things up again? How are the people taking all this, do they support the government’s ending of it? I heard that the police were prepared to take the trucks.
