Member Of US Truck Convoy Whines Motorists Are Giving Him The Finger: ‘Birds Flying Everywhere!’

The so-called “Freedom Convoy” of truckers which began in Canada and has since shifted to the United States (and been renamed the “People’s Convoy,”) has been a miserable failure here in states, as only a few trucks continue to drive in circles (wasting valuable diesel fuel) around the Washington, D.C. beltway.

What’s even more absurd is that the convoy is still protesting since all of the COVID mandates (masks, vaccines) have been dropped, so it isn’t clear what exactly the point of driving around the nation’s capital could possibly be.

However, the few truckers who are still participating are now whining that their fellow motorists aren’t happy to see them and are often flipping them off with a middle finger.

Zachary Petrizzo of The Daily Beast posted a video on Twitter in which one of the truck drivers/protesters complains:

“You go around the Beltway, birds are flying, birds are flying everywhere! That’s the kind of people that live up there, you know? It’s a different world, D.C. is a different world.”

That same driver added:

“We’re trying to straighten [D.C.] out, we’re trying to clean it up, that’s what this is all about, trying to get it cleaned up.”

How are you going to straighten out anything when you’re driving in circles for hours on end? As for getting it “cleaned up,” do the exhaust fumes from those big rigs help clean things up? Hardly.

Wouldn’t it be more productive of the truckers to park their rigs and go visit their members of Congress to discuss whatever grievances they have? Driving around and pissing off motorists is not exactly how you endear yourself to the average commuter.

Twitter users also had some thoughts on what the trucker had to say.
