Fox News’ Will Cain Breathlessly Hypes Anti-Vax Convoy as ‘Divide Between Common Man and the Elite’
Fox News host Will Cain took the network’s public cheers for Canada’s so-called “Liberty Convoy” to new heights on Wednesday, dramatically claiming that the far-right rally of anti-vax protesters is now represents the “split between the ordinary and the elite”.
Over the past two weeks, Fox News spent superior coverage to gobble up protests against COVID-19 restrictions in Canada, which began when a convoy of trucks fought against the country’s vaccine regulations to cross the US-Canada border. Since then, hundreds of pickup trucks and passenger cars Congested traffic in and around Canada’s capital Ottawaremind local residents and Government officials to label it as a “career”.
Even if the protests have fringe elements attract and more and more draw criticism from the Canadian people themselvesespecially after truckers blocked the busiest passage on the US-Canada border, net and American conservatives cheered the anti-vax truckers while describes them as “mainstream”.
With Canadian police now impounding the vehicle and making arrests in an attempt to disrupt the ongoing protest in Ottawa, Cain appeared on Fox News’ Faulkner’s focus discussed the possibility that the US could see a similar protest hit Washington, DC (Crowdfunding for Canadian Protests) coming from American sources and disproportionately right-wing influencers.)
Calling the convoy “the most exciting thing that goes on in the news cycle,” Cain said the protests – which in turn turned into a denunciation of ALL coronavirus mitigation efforts – were “an illustration” of the The most “inherent division” is taking place across all of Western civilization.
“It’s not about race. It is not black or white. It is not political. It’s not a Republican or a Democrat.” Fox & Friends Weekend co-host stated. “It really is—to anyone who thinks this sounds extravagant, it really just becomes so obvious—the divide between the common man and the elite.”
Cain, who has relentlessly resisted mitigation efforts, continued: “What you see happening in Canada is the emergence of the old-fashioned worker – the average person. These people are not anti-vax, these people are not necessarily Republicans. These people are not necessarily conservatives. These are people for whom individuals should retain the power to choose and they are resisting a top-down approach to their lives from elites who tell them what they should think and hear and what they should be submissive in terms of duty. “
A recent poll among actual CanadiansHowever, it shows that the vast majority of citizens of that country disagree with the protesters.
While a significant portion of the country expressed frustration with the nation’s pandemic restrictions, 68 percent of those interviewed felt they had “very little in common with the way the Ottawa protesters see them.” take everything”. Even the conservative majority did not sympathize with the Ottawa protesters.
Furthermore, the country itself has a 79 percent vaccination rateand 90% of Canada’s trucking force have been vaccinated.
Neo Harris Faulknermeanwhile, Americans say they should “look to Canada for some of those answers” about fighting COVID-19 regulations because “they’re winning their argument”. She also noted that the organizers of the “Freedom Carriage” describe themselves as “deeply disgusted” with the way the “free media” has covered the protests.
Cain responded: “These truckers are taken as every insult in the sun from edge to far as hatred towards a cult. “And Harris, I think you’re right that the US was a kind of early freedom-loving population but we’re not leading right now when it comes to top-down elite missions. Right now, we’re being led by Canadian truckers. ”
