"Trucker Tantrum"

John Berman's (CNN) label for the attack on Ottawa and various other cities around the world.

I think it's a good label.

23. They are coming my way this weekend.

I do not live in Buffalo, but in a nearby small city.

Yesterday the Buffalo NPR station reported that a truck convoy is headed to Buffalo from NYC and areas around the US side of the Great Lakes. They plan on a "support rally" to block access from the US side to the Peace Bridge between NY state and Ontario.

This is the main bridge crossing for truckers in this area, and the 3rd largest Canadian/American crossing in the country. It is the route that people take to Niagara Falls. It is also the crossing point for people who cross daily between the two countries for work on the other side.

This is NOT about vaccine mandates. This is about deliberate disruption of economies in the US and Canada, who both have liberal leaders in office.

It is also about deliberately provoking violence. They want the left to respond. So, how do we respond without violence?

I think we should blast them with very LOUD recorded laughter. Nothing hurts these self-important fools more than being laughed at.

If they really are unvaccinated, it sure would be a shame if they got infected by a vaccinated person who has mild or no symptoms and walks among them shaking hands and hugging them to congratulate them.

(OK, that is a bad fantasy that came out of the lower side of my psyche.)

What would happen if they drove their trucks over a bed of nails?

(Another bad fantasy.)



But blasting laughter really does appeal to me.

Any other ideas?

7. I agree whole-heartedly... these right-wings crazies need to get their asses back to work!!

These assholes are trying to bring down the North American economy. The U.S. & Canadian governments need to step in and end this bullshit "protest," even if requires military force to restore order.

They think masks and mandates are hurting their business, so they destroy their business first by clogging up an already stressed supply chain.

But the organizers are right wing, white supremacists. You can google them and find the one guy ranting about anglo-saxon bloodlines and naming your kids "Ching Chang Chong Chin Chang".

36. And they are spreading. Tomorrow

a convoy is coming to Buffalo to block the Peace Bridge here. They are American truckers "in solidarity with" supposed Canadians.

Right, this is NOT about vaccines. This is about disrupting governments and economies of democracies with liberal leaders. Maybe Putin retaliation about Ukraine.

It is spreading to other regions of the world and the US. There is talk of a disruption of the Super Bowl.

I think that this is meant to be a trigger event for the fascist revolutions and civil war the RW has wanted for so long.

17. Agree, I care what they do. Populism pours gas on and weaponizes

the worst in people prone ot negative hostilities. Using their big rigs as powerful weapons against society, as some cheer them as heroes and others are helpless before them, must be like angry fantasies becoming possible.

26. Yes, and right and left are now UNITING as "anti-establishment" populism.

Democrats of course representing America's establishment.

The left's anti-establishment class-warfare populists, frustrated because the only mobs big enough to matter were anti- (Democratic) establishment authoritarian, can now join in one giant mob that may be capable of smashing all before it.

If they vote combined numbers. This is how majorities that voted to destroy themselves in other nations tyically formed. With the inevitable disastrous ends following.

I feel like we're in a political wildfire season.

Grab the shovels and hoses.

When Putin talks about ďuseful idiotsĒ he means these folks willing to destroy their own nation at the behest of outside forces - getting them to do their dirty work while waving a flag.

Bucket and shovel in hand!

And presumably his personal favorite. After all, his own were used to turn all of Russia over into an oligarchy of criminals with him on top. And then put down.

These assholes are anything but popular. They are anti-social extremists, driven by Putin's propaganda and funding, and their own deep-seated psychological problems.

28. I'm saying the word itself is completely inappropriate.

I am aware of how it's been used over the years.

The word was deliberately chosen to make it seem as if evil ideas are somehow "popular".

I bet those truckers listen to RW crap like Joe Rogaine, etc., on satellite radio or of course Fox which is available coast to coast. Outright propaganda and perhaps even subliminal messaging has fried their brain and produced much if not all of what we see now.

which a lot of subversive manipulators push as a huge bait and switch to overthrow of the will of the people.
