An American trucker freedom convoy may not be a reality just yet, but Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is already on board with the idea — “Civil disobedience is a time-honored tradition in our country,” Paul says.
“I’m all for it,” Paul told The Daily Signal. “Civil disobedience is a time-honored tradition in our country, from slavery to civil rights, to you name it. Peaceful protest, clog things up, make people think about the mandates.”
“And some of this, we started,” the Republican explained. “We put [COVID-19] mandates on truckers coming across the border from Canada so they put mandates on, and the truckers are annoyed. They’re riding in a cab by themselves, most of them for eight, 10-hour long hauls, and they just want to do what they want to do. It’s their own business.”
“It’d be great, but the thing is, it wouldn’t shut the city down because the government workers haven’t come to work in two years anyway,” Paul snarked. “I don’t know if it’ll affect D.C. It’d be a nice change. We’d actually have some traffic.”
“I hope the truckers do come to America,” he emphasized. “I hope they clog up cities.”
Paul says we’re finally seeing a “break in the dam” against COVID mandates —proof being the collection of blue states lifting many restrictions this week.
