Truck convoy organizer eyes DC Beltway shutdown

"I'll give you an analogy of that of a giant boa constrictor," Bolus said to Fox5. "That basically squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that's what we're going to do D.C."

so, of course... National guard troops to be deployed in DC as trucker convoy protests loom

Just get your damned shot and stop being such a baby!

I kind of wish those antivax truckers would convoy through one of those states that passed laws saying it was ok to run down protestors blocking an interstate.

Heck maybe even crowdsource funding a mad max style vehicle to cut through all the roadblocking trucks' cabs and trailers.... preferably with an audible warning to clear the road or meet your doom.

My favorite quote on the topic -

Imagine using truck stop bathrooms but drawing the line at vaccines.

I first heard about the convoy protest yesterday from a tweet by the Embassy of Latvia to the USA. If foreign embassies are warning people who need their services about the disruption that is planned, you know that things are getting out of hand.

Truckers in Canada shut down Ottawa over COVID-19 mandates, but Bolus, a long time Trump Supporter, says issues here are more wide-ranging, from fuel prices to school vaccine requirements to immigration.

That's putting it nicely.

I saw the organizer interviewed.

He's not a good speaker.

From what I can tell, they're protesting "illegal immigrants" and black people "taking our jobs," and something about there not being enough white people in this country, and the prosecutions of police who murder black people, and defunding police. He trailed off into a series of grunts, but I heard "the wall" and "Trump" a few times.

There are many avenues (no pun intended) for White grievance to manifest.

Yeah, the folks behind the Canadian protest were mostly the usual right-wing-cranks.

Being a good Canadian, Trudeau gave them plenty of leeway. I don’t think Biden/DC needs to be as accommodating. To my knowledge, the BLM protestors never blocked any highway for more than a couple hours at a time (at least around here).

They have a right to protest, but not in such a way as to f-up other people’s lives indefinitely. If they do so, start towing involved trucks to impound where they can buy them out like the rest of us would be expected to if we left our vehicles parked illegally.

I also don't think taking away their truck-driver licenses would be out of line.

It's not a real protest until it stands in the face of tear gas, pepper spray, police dogs, water cannons, rubber bullets and armed white teenage peace-keepers.

You're right - someone get Rittenhouse on the scene to protect the rights of property owners and commuters inconvenienced by this blockade!

If you do it, do it in a state that allows you to run down protesters blocking an interstate and has fervent "stand your ground" protections... then YES... you're "standing your ground" by maintaining your vehicle's speed as you approach the illegal blockage and open fire!

I have seen serious discussions in Canada about selling the impounded trucks to cover enforcement expenses. Forfeiture is a horrible scam, but might very well become a thing if the truckers are not careful.

A lot of DC is truck restricted. I remember when the legal height limit in DC was 12’ 6”. Now it is 13’ 6” matching most states. These are a bunch of clowns. Most can’t afford to go to DC in their trucks given the miserable rates they are paid from brokers, especially CH Robinson. I suppose, like in Canada, they may be being backed by a few rich folks.
