The hero for breaking up the Canadian trucker protests in an obscure indie musician

Maybe Justin Trudeau didn’t have to invoke the Emergencies Act to deal with the trucker occupation of downtown Ottawa. Some interesting trolling that uses a super-hardcore gay song called “Ram Ranch” did the trick with the Ambassador Bridge blockade in Windsor.

The artist behind the song is Grant MacDonald, a guy who has been sending me stuff (like this) for years.

This metal version is the one that’s been messing things up for the trucker convoy.

Here’s a Twitter thread that shows how things went down. The result was a big “morale blow” to the protestors.

There’s even a t-shirt now. And it’s sold out.
