An Anchorage resident who has a communication position in the Alaska Democratic Party has asked the Anchorage Assembly to take action Chugiak-Eagle River Assemblywoman Jamie Allard, because he says she supports a truckers convoy organized for Feb. 6 in Anchorage.
“I wanted to write this morning to encourage the assembly to take immeidiate action to condem Member Allard’s activity organizing a fundraiser to support white supremacist and terrorism activity. It appears that Member Allard, according to the attached flier, has organized a truck convoy, at the start of Black History Month no less, to raise money in support of the illegal occupation of the Ottawa, the capital of Canada, an ally of the United States by white supremacists, holocost deniers, and racists,” Leon Jaimes wrote to the entire Assembly.
Jaimes is a Democrat activist who was a delegate to the 2020 Democratic National Convention and more recently became chair of the Communications and Social Media Committee for the Anchorage Democrats.
Jaimes quoted the Canadian Parliament’s Black Caucus, which said the Freedom Convoy across Canada over recent days was an “opportunity for White supremacists and others with extreme and disturbing views to parade their odious views in public.”
The Canadian Parliament’s Black Caucus caucus made other false claims that Jaimes quoted in his letter. “This is unacceptable. These displays of hatred and violence offend Canadians and have no place in our country.”
Jaimes went on to say that “Allard has posted pictures of herself with the III% flag flying overhead. The Three Percenters Original National Council was one of the organizations that sent their members to attack our U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021…”
As for Allard, she said she isn’t clear who the three percenters are or to what what photo Jaime is referring.
“This behavior by the Member is unacceptable. It is contrary to the interest of Alaksans. In addition to being our allies, much of our supply chain comes through Canada. We should not and cannot afford to be supporting illegal hate and terrorim activities against their national capitol,” Jaimes wrote, apparently quite hurriedly and without checking his work for typos.
Allard, who represents Eagle River and Chugiak on the Assembly, has shared a social media flyer about a truck convoy being held Sunday at 1:30 pm, starting on C Street near Cabela’s and traveling to a rally at the Eagle River Lions Club the to support Canadian truckers who are protesting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s vaccine mandates.”
