Let's go Oilers, honk honk

The Edmonton Oilers are about to start their Game 1 against the Calgary Flames. On a completely unrelated note, earlier this year, the Freedom Convoy held Edmonton protests downtown every Saturday afternoon starting around 1pm.

Of course, Mayor "I'm Literally a Shitface, just look at it" Sohi hated this and could not let it stand. In fact, the City of Edmonton got an injunction against the convoy using its unique voice: its honking. The reason? Officially, to borrow from the nonsense used by Ottawa government whiners, was how horrible and disruptive that honking was. It's just not fair to all the residents, you see, to make them endure all this endless noise. The Edmonton Freedom Convoy, unlike the equally wonderful and justifiable Ottawa version, was only on Saturday afternoons. By 5pm the event was pretty much died down.

In fact, not just honking: the injunction included speakers and anything else that made any noise whatsoever.

Curiously enough, and sorry if I confused you, this isn't "unrelated" to the upcoming Oilers game at all. You see, on Saturday night I was out on Whyte Avenue to enjoy some beers and watch Game 7 of the opening series. A good time was had by all, and during an exciting and well-played while still nail-biting game, the Oilers defeated the Los Angeles Kings and moved onto the second round for the first time in the Retarded Land Acknowledgement Era. As you might expect, people were rather excited about this.

Since the game was played at 8pm for both the benefit of the Los Angeles TV audience and to accommodate the now-eliminated Maple Leafs, the Oilers victory didn't come until around 11pm. Just like in 2006, that first round victory led to a large crowd descending on the avenue (downtown arena be damned). And then the strangest thing happened. Cars started honking: loudly, incessantly, constantly. When I left the strip around 1:15am, the line of cars up and down the road honking over and over and over was only growing.

Unlike the strip from 109th Avenue between 98th Avenue and 104th Avenue where the vast majority of the Freedom Convoy operated, this is right smack dab in a well populated residential area. Unlike the Freedom Convoy, it was late at night. And also unlike the Freedom Convoy, Mayor Shitface hasn't denounced it and the City of Edmonton has taken no legal action against it. (It's worth noting the equally nonwhite and equally freedom-hating bitch who is Mayor of Calgary acted similarly in both aspects).

Leftists online haven't freaked out about people being harmed by all the honking.  If the celebration resumes after every Oilers game it will be even more common, and always at night. Yet the usual losers are completely silent on the issue. Of course we all know why but it still doesn't make it right.
