(Republican Insider) – A new report from Gateway Pundit has revealed that the organizer of one of the multiple trucker convoys in the United States set to protest against vaccine mandates and other COVID related restrictions, all of which are headed for Washington, D.C., says that they will be like a “giant boa constrictor” that “squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that’s what we’re going to do to DC.”
Bob Bolus, who is the owner of a truck parts and towing company located in Scranton, Pennsylvania, went on to say that they are protesting a whole range of different issues, some that go beyond COVID, including high fuel prices.
The organizers of one of the convoys, which is called the “People’s Convoy,” is claiming that they have 1,000 truckers who are ready to participate in the protest “right out of the gate,” but think it will only grow as it moves out of California and heads for D.C.
Bolus then stated that his group is planning to stay “a day or two.”
“We will be along the Beltway where the Beltway will be shut down,” Bolus stated during an interview he conducted with Fox 5 on Sunday.
“I’ll give you an analogy of that of a giant boa constrictor,” Bolus remarked. “That basically squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that’s what we’re going to do to DC.”
The reporter doing the interview with Bolus then asked if he understood the kind of “impact on those trying to get to work and the risk to those in need of emergency responders.”
“There will be a lane open for emergency vehicles, they’ll be able to get in and out and all that,” Bolus answered. “We will not compromise anybody’s safety or health, one way or the other. As far as if they can’t get to work, geez that’s too bad.”
A poll that was done by Rasmussen and published last week reveals that the majority of Americans surveyed would lend their support to a trucker protest here in the United States.

“The Capitol Police have issued a statement saying that they are upping security around DC ahead of truck convoys — which are expected to arrive in the city around the time of Joe Biden’s first State of the Union address,” the GP report said.
The State of the Union speech is scheduled for March 1.
“The department said that they are coordinating with other agencies, including the Secret Service and National Guard,” the report continued.
“Law enforcement agencies across the National Capital Region are aware of plans for a series of truck convoys arriving in Washington, DC around the time of the State of the Union. As with any demonstration, the USCP will facilitate lawful First Amendment activity,” Capitol Police revealed in a statement put out on Friday.
A memo that was obtained by The Hill back on Feb. 9 said that the department “has received reports of truck drivers potentially planning to block roads in major metropolitan cities in the United States in protest of, among other things, vaccine mandates. The convoy will potentially begin in California as early as mid-February, potentially impacting the Super Bowl scheduled for 13 February and the State of the Union address scheduled for 1 March.”
The American people, many from all walks of life, have had it with intrusive government. These truckers represent the average Joe who is just trying to keep his head down, do his job, and put food on the table for his family, something the government is interfering with by trying to enforce vaccine mandates.
Government officials wouldn’t listen to the concerns of the people, so now the people are making sure they have no choice by peacefully protesting. That’s what America is all about.
