RCMP refuse to enforce the law in BC

In a popular tourist area North of Kamloops BC near the community of Blue River, a small band of extremists has set up an illegal roadblock on a public road for over a year and the RCMP refuses to act on it. The cowardly approach of the authorities has emboldened these extremists and they are becoming increasingly aggressive and potentially violent. Local community members are frustrated and concerned as they can’t access a public zone which they have used for recreation for decades.

Incidents are starting to stack up and it is only a matter of time before a tragic outcome occurs. Who will be held responsible if a local citizen or even one of these protesters gets injured or killed in a confrontation?

The anger and aggression of these ideologues is clear in multiple videos where they have turned people back from legitimate use of this public road as can be seen in the video below.

Nicholas Oakman took the video above when he tried to use the road to access Murtle Lake last Canada Day. Oakman is from the area originally and had accessed the road for years. He had no reason to feel that he couldn’t or shouldn’t now. The crazed protesters pushed Oakman back and he gave up on his trip. Thankfully Oakman maintained self-control and violence did not break out. This may not always be the case in the future.

It is not only public recreational users who are being turned away on this roadblock. Local maintenance crews simply trying to do their job were pushed back in a racism laden confrontation with the squatters. It should be noted that there were female and people of aboriginal decent in the work truck. The tirade from the extremists was rather baseless.

Kanahus Manuel charges truck in Racist Attack.

In the video Shot by Kanahus Manuel, they can be seen screaming obscenities to the passenger of the truck like “Fuck off Whitey” and “Fuck off you honkey mother fucker”. Racism is NEVER ok!! This driver was just trying to use the road that we ALL own, and was viciously attacked. Why hasn’t she been arrested for this harassment?? Well, likely because she’s a known informant with immunity.

These incidents have prompted the Thompson-Nicola Regional District to ask for a meeting with BC Public Safety Minister.

As reported in Kamloops This Week months ago:

” “This group is escalating. People were actually chasing children. When an eight-year-old asks his father, ‘Dad, what’s rape?’, our community has had enough,” TNRD Thompson Headwaters Blue River director Stephen Quinn told the board on Thursday. “

As far as can be found, the BC government has not done anything to address this issue.

But what of the RCMP?

Well their approach can be seen in the video below.

A new video posted to Twitter today. Every day the police go there, and they tell the police to leave…. and the police listens. It’s frustrating to see, however, if you remember last year, there was daily attendance to camp cloud for about a month before their removal as well. So fingers crossed history is repeating itself. ?Posted by Camp Cloud and Tiny House Warriors Exposed on Tuesday, 2 July 2019

The RCMP pull up, they are aggressively approached by the illegal protest and told to leave, like compliant kittens the officers get back into their vehicle and leave the encampment alone.

It is truly sad and embarrassing to see what was once such a respected police force reduced to slinking away from situations such as this. If they can’t clear a road being illegally blocked by a handful of extremists, what indeed are they for?

A Kelowna publication called “Infotel” contacted the RCMP on this issue recently and the quotes were telling.

” Clearwater RCMP Sgt. Grant Simpson says police have been aware of the blockade on the road to Murtle Lake for approximately a year but wouldn’t comment on the legalities of it.

“We have been aware of the roadblock since day one,” Simpson says. “At this point, I have to be careful on how I comment on (this).”

Over a year???? What the hell does it take to get the law enforced?

Why not comment on the legalities of it? Does it take a lawyer to know whether it is legal or not to block a public road for over a year? Rest assured that most citizens would be arrested within minutes of trying such a stunt.

The response reeks of cowardice I am afraid. The bottom line is that these are aboriginal protesters and few things make the collective buttholes of the authorities pucker up faster than the thought of a confrontation with aboriginal protesters even if it is a ragtag bunch of extremists such as this.

So just who are these extremists?

Well, they call themselves “Tiny House Warriors” and they have ostensibly been formed to fight pipeline development in BC though they seem to have a myriad of issues that they want to burn down the nation over.

While this little collection of people has some folks who are indeed of native origin, this protest is not a part of or sanctioned by any real native organization. These protesters aren’t even right from this spot but are from Chase where their “leader” owns a gas station among other things. Rational groups have disassociated themselves from the Tiny House gang.

The head of this group is an odious person named Amanda Soper.

Soper has a number of aliases and a rap sheet that goes back over a decade with numerous crimes

Its little wonder that Soper prefers to go by her alias of Kanahus Manuel these days.

Soper is attracted to dangerous criminals. She sought out and married Orlando Watley who is serving time in a maximum security prison for committing a triple homicide!

The chances of a multiple murderer like Watley being released are extremely slim thankfully. What he does do though is provide Soper with another cause to fundraise as she collects money from donors which supposedly will go towards her efforts to free him. Soper constantly begs and gains donations from naive or simply extreme supporters for her causes. I imagine that it doesn’t cost much to reside in a squatter encampment on a roadside but Soper apparently needs a pretty steady flow of income to do so and she isn’t shy about asking for it.

Assuming that the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion construction ever begins, protesters are going to need to be removed. If we won’t even remove Amanda Soper and her little gang of extremists from their illegal roadblock, how are we to expect the authorities to clear out the inevitable protests and blockades which will be coming from the more organized and numerous of protest groups?

The “Tiny House Warriors” are a small group but they are dangerous and they set a terrible precedent. The lawsuits will be myriad if and when a conflict becomes violent there as citizens will have a strong case in pointing out how the RCMP have refused to enforce the law after an entire year of illegal occupation by these people.

Let’s hope they wise up and act sooner rather than later.

Exposing the anonymous cowards

Neil Waytowich was one of the most belligerent and prolific trolls in the Canadian scroll. He spewed profanity laced vitriol at conservative politicians and journalists with energy and time that seemed limitless. He prided himself on being blocked by numerous public figures. His contribution to the often toxic environment of twitter was outstanding.

That is, until his security blanket of anonymity was shed.

Blacklocks.ca discovered and exposed Mr. Waytowich’s true identity and the sudden change in attitude from Neil was nothing short of miraculous.

For whatever reason, Waytowich elected to do a live radio interview with Lynda Steele after having been exposed. The transformation from internet tough guy to a meek and contrite little man was striking.

Give it a listen below:

Quite the transformation eh?

Hey, I am not a sweetheart on social media either. I can be prone to profanity and prone to being an asshole just for the sake of entertaining myself. That is indeed classic trolling and I have been guilty of it.

The difference between myself and Mr. Waytowich though is that I have the balls to be like that under my own name.

I own my comments whether good or bad and deal with the consequences. I have been called all sorts of things and have gotten some pretty choice communications from folks that I have pissed off at times. I have had people try to organize boycotts of my business and I have had people demand that my social media accounts be deleted. These are consequences of both my choice to be abrasive online and to do it under my own name.

Enduring the price to pay for being outspoken online makes it difficult for me to respect pussies such as Waytowich who can only talk tough when remaining hidden. They are the online version of folks who throw bricks through the window in the night.

Some folks have reasons not to want to put their own names out there and they certainly have that right. It is hard to respect or take their postings seriously though, especially when they engage in personal attacks on others from behind their wall of anonymity.

If we want to see more civil behaviour online, we should be encouraging more folks to drop the anonymity.

The anonymous cowards offline are an even more dangerous sort of scumbag.

We saw that in spades as a collection of pussies in Portland hid their identities while they attacked journalist Andy Ngo so viciously that he was hospitalized with a brain hemorrhage.

You can bet that these assholes would never have so viciously attacked an innocent man like that had they been unmasked. Like Waytowich they would have skulked away in cowardice rather than act out when they would have to face the music for their actions.

I know it works up civil libertarians but too damn bad. In nations such as Canada and the USA, there is no reason for protesters to hide their identities. There are no death squads rounding them up in the night and no blacklists.

Lets face it, the shitbags who show up masked, with weapons and helmets at protests are seeking trouble and truly want to hurt people.

Want to see a massive reduction in violence at demonstrations? Unmask them. Like Neil, they will turn into instant pussycats.

Want to take a side in a demonstration? Well, if the demonstrators have the balls to show their faces they likely are on the side of good.

If they hide behind anonymity, they are simply cowards who want to cause damage rather than good.
