CBC Invents “Phantom Honking” To Smear Freedom Convoy

Written By Daniel Bordman, Posted on March 1, 2022

There has been a long list of ridiculous accusations thrown at the Freedom Convoy by the legacy media to discredit it, but “Phantom Honking” may yet be the most ridiculous. 

In the article from the Canadian government’s state broadcaster, they interview two people and one “expert” to make the claim that the Freedom convoy “tortured” and “traumatized” the residents of Ottawa, despite crime dropping significantly while the truckers were parked on the streets.  If the state broadcaster had any editorial standards no editor would green-light an article that invented a new condition based on a sample size of 2.

While this is a rather silly thing that should draw significant ridicule towards the CBC, there is actually clear nefarious intent behind stories like this.

Besides the fact that it undermines the national conversation around mental health and PTSD specifically, articles like these will serve as “evidence” against the Freedom Convoy in the government and their ideological activists in their ongoing legal assault on the people that expressed political dissent.

Tamara Lich is still in jail as a political prisoner and it is state-funded propaganda like Phantom Honking that will be used by the activists within the judicial system to keep an innocent woman captive and punish other political dissidents. 

Those who want to end the Vaccine mandates and Passports are facing a tidal wave of lies and slander.  Some are outright ridiculous like “phantom honking,” but others are malicious and calculated lies from the heights of the government, like when Liberal Public safety Minister Marco Mandenceno said without a shred of evidence that the truckers were threatening to rape women. 

Marco Mandenceno.

Under the current Trudeau government, it seems that the future of free speech and the right to peacefully protest rests on the shoulders of whatever judge lands this trucker case. Will the judge value truth and the rule of law? Or will they be another Liberal party member deployed to protect Trudeau?

    Go out there and fucking scream beep beep honk honk and buy a goddamn megaphone. Theyre $100. Fuck the liberals

    Mental Marco should be under the constant supervision of mental health professionals. This is a clear example of a failed medical system and Mr Mandenceno is as much a victim as anyone else, however, a man this disturbed cannot be allowed to recklessly wield power and influence that has and will continue to harm Canadians until the appropriate measures are taken to place him into a facility under professional care.
