Well, if I were driving around in circles all day to protest pandemic mandates that have largely been rescinded, I might get pretty frustrated, too. Troop TruckNutz—aka the “People’s Convoy”—has been doing God knows what on the D.C. Beltway lately, for reasons known only to them. And it’s started to get pretty pathetic, frankly.
It would be one thing if they were harassing and endangering commuters for an absurd reason—i.e., making the country safe for COVID-19—but they appear to have zero legitimate grounds for any of this, other than residual pique.
Now things appear to be boiling over—and getting violent—as these truckers slowly wake up to the realization that no one gives a figgy fuck about their tantrum.
As previously reported that the D.C. Truckers—riding in spirit with their Eastwoodian mascot, Clod the Orange Ape—have been making a feckless show of resistance against something or other. Honestly, they might as well be protesting the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act for all the difference they’re making, since many mandates have already gone “poof.” These folks are about as popular as the Bain Capital/DJ-Mitt Romney Drug-Free Sunday Brunch Rave at Burning Man.
The Daily Beast:
A trucker member of the so-called “People’s Convoy” apparently can’t hack it in D.C. traffic and engaged in a little road rage on Monday afternoon, getting out of his truck to confront a driver and punch his window. During his own live stream, truck driver John Bigard, host of the OTR Survival YouTube channel, was seen getting out of his vehicle on U.S. 395 and confronting a driver who seemingly attempted to merge from a far left lane towards an exit. At one point, Bigard was seen yelling at the driver before repeatedly striking the driver side window of the silver car. Upon getting back into his truck, the convoy trucker appeared to mock the driver’s accent while calling him a “fucking idiot.”
Okay, but who’s the one driving around in circles for no reason? Who’s the gormless goober here?
This was not the anti-vaccine mandate trucker convoy’s first episode of road rage, as they have been spitefully boxing in cars in response to drivers giving them the middle finger. “We will continue to address any violations of the law while we maintain the free flow of traffic,” a Maryland State Police official told The Daily Beast Monday morning.
Let’s roll the tape.
Of course, if driving aimlessly for hours isn’t pointless or boring enough for you, you can always watch other people driving around. The People’s Convoy has generously made that possible for you through this ongoing livestream of their rolling circle jerk.
Enjoy! Or not! Totally up to you, patriot!
P.S.: I’ve watched for about five minutes and I’ve only swallowed my tongue twice so far, so you all should be fine. Just be sure to take regular breaks, because this is some real mind-numbing shit.
