On the ground in Canada with Freedom Convoy 'insurrection'

Police have increased pressure on the “Freedom Convoy” protest in the Canadian capital of Ottawa in Canada, issuing hundreds of tickets, towing vehicles and making arrests in an attempt to end the protest, which Canadian officials have derided as an "occupation." RT America's John Huddy brings the latest from the scene unfolding just outside Parliament Hill, thick with protest. Then political analyst Justin Hinkle, host of “The Dive," shares his analysis.

Investigative journalist Ben Swann joins to discuss the way Biden’s White House is taking advantage of the controversy over Spotify’s contract with edgy podcasting heavyweight Joe Rogan to encourage online platforms like Facebook to censor some speech and “uplift” other speech on their platforms.

Plus, RT America’s Natasha Sweatte reports on the backlash among some parents over new Black History Month curricula inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, which challenges the allegedly Eurocentric “nuclear family” and its primacy in US culture, as well as new legal and regulatory challenges to the leaders of some Black Lives Matter organizations and whether it tarnishes the credibility of the movement they purportedly incarnate. Then Hawk Newsome of Black Lives Matter - New York Chapter and Ed Martin of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles weigh in.
