It’s noteworthy #NevrePoilievre marched with ubiquitous & extremely dodgy character, Paul Alexander. Many have heard his name by now, but it’s important to note how Alexander keeps turning up. He wasn’t just a Trump appointee, he was handpicked by Michael Caputo. #Freedumbers ImageImageImageImage
Michael Caputo created controversy, even within the Trump administration. Caputo has ties to both Putin & Roger Stone. So how he came to personally pluck Alexander, an obscure part-time instructor in 🇨🇦, to help him bully scientists at #HHS, is still a mystery to me. #cdnpoli ImageImageImageImage
Paul Alexander shows up again & again. He was a central figure in #FluTruxKlan 1, & shows up again in #CoupTruxKlan 2.0. #cdnpoli #FreeDumbConvoy ImageImageImageImage

This pic of #NevrePoilievre says it all. His cosplay using anything he can to manipulate. But look closer, his $1400+ Canada Goose parka, to his snow pants (SNOW PANTS) & mittens, he looks like a spoiled child whose daddy told him he gets to be king of 🇨🇦. #cdnpoli #CoupTruxKlan
#NevrePoilievre, has only ever been a career politician. That’s it. Yet he’s allegedly a multimillionaire. 🤔
Poilievre has been boosted by fake accounts & troll farm operations for some time now, but his role in this seditious “trucker” op, should be criminally investigated.
#NevrePoilievre is deeply involved in this “trucker” op, as are multiple threat actors attacking 🇨🇦 & seeking to sabotage the Canadian gov’t. #Sedition #SeditiousConspiracy #CoupTruxKlan

Many of you have questions about the #OathKeepers in light of the #Sedition charges filed against group members today. Here's a quick overview: (Thread) (1)
Oath Keepers is a militia group that specializes in recruitment veterans, active-duty troops, and police. It joins many other white power and militant right groups in this strategy (Klan, Aryan Nations, skinhead, neo-Nazi, and several other groups have done this for decades) (2)
If you're new here you may not have heard me say this, but the aftermath of warfare is the most consistent predictor of vigilante violence in the US--and the most consistent predictor of membership surges in groups like this (3)

ABOUT TIME this #traitor was charged with #sedition.🤬
