Tucker Carlson, Liberator?

Tucker Carlson visited Canada this week to “liberate” it from … from what exactly?

Well, that’s what thousands of people – including the premier of Alberta – came to Calgary and Edmonton to hear in packed arenas.

Tucker’s two-day liberation tour from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “authoritarian dictatorship” is timed perfectly around two political pieces of populist kindling: Trump’s march to victory in the US presidential primaries and a Canadian judge’s ruling that the Liberal government’s invocation of the Emergencies Act during the Trucker pandemic protest was “unreasonable” and unconstitutional.

It all sent a message: The populist forces are gathering and ready to take down Trudeau (and Biden) and save Canada from “disgusting decline.”

The Graphic Truth: No need to liberate Canada

Tucker Carlson says it’s time to invade Canada because the Canucks are being oppressed by an authoritarian government that won’t let them run amok with guns (and unvaccinated). But a bit of digging by Maru Public Opinion shows that the vast majority of Canadians are not feeling oppressed. Sure, some would prefer looser gun laws, but the majority are not screaming about tyranny or planning a revolution. We look at their views on various freedoms and compare the percentage of each population, American and Canadian, that believes relations between the two countries have gotten worse.
