On Monday afternoon, MSNBC anchor Katy Tur feared a protest by Canadian truckers against government COVID regulations was tantamount to a “national insurrection.” She then brought on a Canadian journalist who detailed the threats posed by the demonstrators: Plinko, pizza ovens, saunas, and hot tubs.
“The mayor of Ottawa has declared a state of emergency as truckers protest Canada’s COVID vaccine requirements. Thousands of truckers have virtually shutdown the city, with Canadian officials calling the situation a, quote, ‘nationwide insurrection,’” Tur warned at the top of the segment.
Yes, the dangerous pizza and hot tubs truly terrorize MSNBC viewers.
Reporter Annie Bergeron-Oliver gave the horrifying details:
"And you know, this is not just a protest, Ottawa, like any capital city, is used to a protest. But here, you know, right beside me they set up a Plinko table, one of those games you would see on The Price Is Right, they have open fire pits that are burning throughout the downtown, they have villages, essentially, they build structures on the street to keep people warm, they have a full set of – I saw some pizza ovens the other day. Even in one spot, organizers had three different saunas and a hot tub set up."
This from the same network the covered the "Summer Of Floyd" burnings and lootings as "mostly a protest. It is not, generally speaking, unruly.”
