Rand Paul Backs Canadian Truckers, Calls For Trucker Protest In The U.S.

//

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has called for the expansion of the ongoing Canadian trucker protests to the United States in an interview with the conservative media outlet Daily Signal.

The libertarian Senator praised the Canadian truckers for their large-scale civil disobedience against the authoritarian vaccine mandates imposed by the government of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, adding that “it’d be great” if U.S. truckers followed in their footsteps to protest Joe Biden and the Democrat Governors imposing similar draconian restrictions south of the border.

“I’m all for it,” Paul stated. “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. I hope the truckers do come to America, and I hope they clog up cities.”
 
In Canada, the truckers are running the ‘Freedom Convoy 2022’, a line of trucks crossing the entire country in protest of the vaccine mandates for truck drivers re-entering Canada from the United States. The convoys have converged in Ottawa, the nation’s capital, and are demanding that Trudeau rescind these mandates to avoid putting tens of thousands of truck drivers out of work. 
 
Besides Rand Paul, a number of other senior Republicans have backed the Canadian protests, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), former President Donald Trump, Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL)
