Inspiring! The Canadian Far-Right is Falling Apart Because This Guy Can't Read Court Documents - 2021-08-12
Thanks to one man's inability to read legal documents and a simple coincidence, anti-lockdown personalities are at each other's throats; they're making debunking videos, posting long diatribes about fake friends, and calling for boycotts of right-wing media.
The man at the centre of the situation is Patrick King, an Alberta man involved in the Canadian far-right ecosystem for some time. King recently went viral for claims that he was responsible for lifting all COVID-19 measures in Alberta. An interview he gave about it has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and celebrated across a ton of alternative media channels.
His claims are, of course, dead wrong. Regardless, they somehow forced multiple fact-checks from legit outlets, including international media organizations like Reuters and the Associated Press.
