Pierre Poilievre worked to oust #ErinOToole just as a large scale info-ops attack is launched in 🇨🇦. Now Poilievre says he’s “running for Prime Minister of 🇨🇦”. He hasn’t even won #CPC leadership, yet foreign troll farms are retweeting him en masse. None of this is coincidental.
The past week+ I noticed a huge uptick in troll accounts amplifying Poilievre. It was creepy. Poilievre routinely gets boosted by fake “Canada Proud” & “Rebel” type troll networks. But this was different. Foreign troll networks amplifying the same messaging…& PP. #cdnpoli #CPC ImageImageImageImage

Let’s deconstruct what’s going on here. Notice how Poilievre & his crypto-fascist cohorts are working overtime to, er, whitewash this RW extremist #FluTruxKlan op? In this case, searching for rare BIPOC in attendance & donning them like blackface. #cdnpoli Image
Pierre Poilivre has no issues with the Nazi symbols, Proud Boys, III%ers, Soldiers of Odin (he appeared with these groups at the last dark money funded op: #UnitedWeRoll).

You’re supposed to ignore all that, while thugs threaten, harass, break laws, desecrate. #FluTruxKlan ImageImageImageImage
Do not come @ me for using the F-word (fascist). If you can’t recognize what creeping fascism 2.0 looks like by now, I can’t help you. #FluTruxKlan ImageImageImageImage

As I further examine the #TruckersForFreedom #TruckerConvoy2022 grift & op, here’s my guess on what’s happening (I hope someone does an analysis with software I don’t possess @DFRLab). I suspect the “donations” are being laundered through a troll farm. Along w/ fake account posts
Ms Lich keeps increasing the goal amount as “donations” come in every minute or every few minutes. Fake donations laundered through a troll farm type apparatus wld be in small amounts done more frequently in order to appear authentic, in addition to real donations by the gullible
But that’s not all. There is coordinated messaging across #Conservative propaganda media. Disinformation 101. Make a lie displace truth. RW disinformation posing as “news” has been steadily promoting this op & pumping out a false narrative (& asking for $$ 🙄) #TruckersForFreedom

How disinfo & propaganda get amplified & displace truth. After #OntarioStorm, there were massive delivery backlogs due to both storm & highway closures. This video shows a rush hour scene of trucks, claiming it’s #TruckersForFreedom. Propagandist Bexte then grifts off the lie.
Keean Bexte is well versed in this con. In #UnitedWeRoll his barrage of daily lies (including constantly lying about crowd sizes 🤔), never answered the question of who was paying him & “Rebel” & who was funding the massive fuel costs of big rigs driving across the country.
PS, funny how the supposed “crowd funding” that disinformationist Bexte was claiming, all came in crisp $20 bills. You know, the same kind that come out of an ATM. 🤔 (Collecting random cash doesn’t look like this).

This was before Bexte began soliciting “donations” in crypto 😏

How do you know #TruckersForFreedom is an op as well as a grift? Because of the scores of troll network accounts, followed by troll farm accounts, posting fake pictures, endlessly promoting this operation. Who’s behind these troll networks? #KochNetwork #CEC #CanadaProud #GRU? ImageImageImageImage
How you know #TruckersForFreedom is a con & an op part 2. #Conservative politicians are using this lie to data mine with fake “petitions” while they pump out disinformation & fundraise off it. Gratuitous lying like from Melissa Lantsman. #RageFarming #NeverVoteConservative ImageImageImageImage
#TruckersForFreedom grift & op part 3.

I’ve now lost count of all the pictures & videos taken from other countries & other times claiming to be a convoy in 🇨🇦. Like this one. Claiming a video of a backed up highway at rush hour is a ‘massive convoy against vaccine mandates’ 🙄. Image

Remember the Yellow Vests Canada “United We Roll” AstroTurf “protests”? Where somehow supposedly out-of-work truckers had the money to fuel up transport trucks at a cost of multiple thousands of $$ (sporting anti-Trudeau slogans), travel across 🇨🇦, pay for meals & hotels? #Elxn44
It pretended to be “grassroots”. It was anything but. It was a mixture of #Conservative politicians at all levels of government, right wing propaganda media - Rebel, True North Centre etc (even a few CBC ppl). + white nationalists & other extremists #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44
#Conservative leaders were right in there. Promoting an obvious op, benefiting the fossil fuel industry & pumping out propaganda to stop #ClimateAction. This is the #CPC. A pro-extinction position, promoting denialism & #DarkMoney funded deceit. #NeverVoteConservative #elxn44

You’ve probably noticed shares from Prairie Freedom Movement, or their offshoots/websites. They’ve installed pro-separatist billboards in AB, SK, and MB.

Their messaging includes anti-globalist, anti-UN, & anti-Islam sentiments. #cdnpoli #abpoli #mbpoli #skpoli

THREAD. /1
Their support for #yellowvestscanada is obvious. /2
PFM shared numerous live feeds from the #unitedweroll convoy /3

I noticed this today, and realized we’ve been neglecting Pat King and Jay Riedel, and their “town halls” across SK and AB (so far.) /1

#YellowVestsCanada #cdnpoli
They were #UnitedWeRoll organizers, and they appear to have capitalized on their popularity, complete with merchandise for sale, under their new project “Rollin’ With Pat and Jay.” Here’s a sample of the kind of stuff they post. /2

#YellowVestsCanada #cdnpoli
Note that the first screenshot in the previous tweet is the rebranded Nfld YV page.

This is funny: an entirely unrelated Compact from 2015, but hey, let’s feed that UN conspiracy garbage a bit more.

Their page and group are just an echo of YVC /3

#YellowVestsCanada members are upset that they can't share the video of the #NewZealandTerroristAttack, so much so that it's a government conspiracy to protect the videos credibility.
@facebook allows this.

More comments. The black rectangles are blocking still captures of the video. You bet your ass I reported that.
These comments stuck out for me as particularly gross and heinous, so I looked into them a little further:

The #UnitedWeRoll protesters expressed disappointment that PM Trudeau did not come out to speak to them. They have been photographed wearing shirts and carrying signs that say Trudeau should be charged with treason, or hanged. 1/
And then Senator Tkachuck. you know, the CPC Senate house leader during the Harper regime, he calls on all the trucker to "roll over" all Liberals so the legislation they passed could be disappeared. 2/
Even if he wanted to interact with this group, I have to think our PM's security detail were very discouraging. It doesn't go down well in one's record to have the PM shot on one's watch. Especially since the last political assassination in Canada was in 1970. 3/

Is it just me, or do others have the impression that #cdnmedia is either bought and paid for by the CPC, or intimidated by them? The #SNCLavalin coverage/speculation has gone well into the realm of mind-numbingly boring and absurd... #cdnpoli 1/16
A rumour, printed in a right-leaning newspaper, without source, which for all we know, was planted in the reporter's ear by someone in the CPC, has dominated Canadian news coverage for more than a week... 2/16
And won't #cdnmedia all look silly if it turns out to be a non-issue? Meanwhile, we have a convoy of dubious provenance that rolled across the prairies and into Ottawa and #cdnmedia all cheerfully interview them as though they know what they are talking about... 3/16

BREAKER BREAKER WE GOT A CONVOY THREAD!

This is disheartening to me. When I see top-level politicians throwing their weight behind this #unitedweroll convoy, I get very frustrated. These people have a staff, and that staff should do homework on this movement.
2/ The #UnitedWeRoll started when a bunch of yellow vests co-opted the pipelines and energy cause and hard work done by @rally4resources and @CanadaAction who have organized years of effective action to advocate for Canadian resources and the common sense development of them.
3/ After a number of respectful, well organized and well attended events (including convoys), a pair of people started the go fund me campaigns that eventually grew into #UnitedWeRoll. They capitalized on confusion and boiling frustration and raised a bunch of money before

NOT SHOCKING (ethics violations).

Trudeau PMO interfering in criminal prosecutions pressuring Attorney General to abandon criminal prosecution of his cronies. When she refused Trudeau fired her. Now he's denying it!

Times' Up Trudeau - Criminal investigation NOW. #cdnpoli
WATCH Trudeau lie to the nation & how easily he does so.

🇨🇦journalist @ezralevant (regularly vilified by Trudeau govt & state media CBC) points to system flaws:

Attorney General "duty of confidentiality to client" Only Trudeau himself can waive!!

NEVER AGAIN Canada

#cdnpoli
🇨🇦 Parliament: Trudeau Government grilled re PMO interference in criminal prosecution at highest level.

Smirking sheepishly, refusing to answer question. Believe themselves above law & untouchable

NOT ONE HAS CROSSED THE FLOOR.
