Americans are getting together to push back for freedom and demanding to be heard:

Inspired by Canadian truck protests, 'People's Convoy' heads to Washington​

ADELANTO, Calif., Feb 23 (Reuters) - A group of American truckers began a cross-country drive from California to Washington on Wednesday to protest coronavirus restrictions, taking a cue from demonstrations that paralyzed Canada's capital city, Ottawa, for weeks.

More than two dozen 18-wheeler trucks, along with some 50 pickups and recreational vehicles, left Adelanto, California, about 80 miles (130 km) northeast of Los Angeles. The self-styled 'People's Convoy' is beginning an 11-day trek to the Beltway, a major highway encircling the U.S. capital, to demand an end to COVID-19 vaccine and mask requirements.


"This is for our freedoms, our human rights. Enough is enough," said Ron Coleman, 61, a trucker from Reno, Nevada, as he prepared to make the 2,500-mile (4,000-km) journey.

Coleman, a trucker for 45 years, said the group was also pushing for the end to the emergency powers that U.S. politicians have used to enact pandemic-related restrictions.

The "Canadian truck protest" was a dozen trucks and a few pick-ups flying Confederate flags (yeah, in Canada). To say anyone was inspired is to claim Americans were inspired by the Unite the Right Rally (Charlottesville). It's gross ignorance and supporting scum.

"Inspired by nazis, more nazis plan to fly Confederate flags."

That's the title if we're to use "inspired".

Freedom?
From what?
Being responsible citizens and doing what is needed to end an infectious disease?
They can protest but if it gets out of hand like it did in Canada they should be dealt with harshly and quickly.

In Canada, that wasn't even it. The national Canadian trucker organization condemned the "protest". The "protest" was scum flying Confederate flags. It was a kkk rally just like Charlottesville.

Some people are "inspired" by kkk rallies.

So in other words, lie and smear ordinary working class people in any way you can. You forgot to accuse them of working for Vladimir Putin. :rolleyes:

The scum were condemned by the national organization. They represent only scum.

I just hope the Americans have the sense to be more inclusive with their protest.

I found the lack of diversity on display in Ottawa to be truly disgusting.

Kkk rallies are like that here too.

Well we'll see what happens, but our police aren't as nice as the Canadians.

I'll have to take your word for it. I've never been to one so I wouldn't know.

Remember Charlottesville? Same thing happened in Canada. It was advertised as a trucker thing but it was only a handful of Confederate flag scum. Confederate flag scum always pretend to be something else.

Confederate flag scum always advertise themselves as something else. In the US, it was "Unite the Right Rally". In Canada, it was "Trucker Protest Convoy". In both cases, the advertisement was a lie and it was a racist rally of a few dozen people.

The Canadian scum has been condemned by the Canadian national truckers organization (not a union).

Meanwhile, for people who have the honesty to read different news sources.

Since we know they're coming to block roads, have tow trucks ready to meet them.
