WATCH: Right-Wing ‘People’s Convoy’ Gets Run Out Of Neighborhood By Egg-Throwing Residents

The so-called “People’s Convoy” of truckers and other right-wing nutjobs opposed to COVID restrictions (the vast majority of which have been lifted) decided to take their protest to California, but they picked the wrong neighborhood and were quickly dispatched by residents who tossed eggs at their vehicles.

Convoys of truckers shut down the Ambassador Bridge connecting Canada and the United States back in February, but attempts to mimic those protests here in the U.S. have been met with apathy and anger, as commuters quickly grew tired of seeing big rigs blocking the highways as they attempted to make their way to work on time.

On Friday, a group of protesters took their trucks to a San Francisco suburb to show disapproval of Democratic Assemblymember Buffy Wicks’ support for an abortion bill and were run out of town, according to the San Francisco Gate:

Livestreams posted by convoy participants show police arriving to protect Wicks’ home, which eventually prompted the group to move on. It was here they made their mistake, driving onto busy, one-lane College Avenue on the Berkeley-Oakland border. There, slowed down by the usual Friday afternoon traffic, they were sitting ducks outside the Safeway. A large group of kids, armed with eggs purchased at the grocery store, began pelting the convoy.

Even better was that some of the truckers were stupid enough not to take proper precautions and literally wound up with egg on their faces:

A few ill-advised convoy drivers had their windows rolled down, resulting in eggs splattering the insides of their vehicles. Passersby watched in confusion and amusement, with some adults stopping to cheer on the kids. Furious truckers then drove out of town, heading back on the highway toward their base in Sacramento. According to CB radio captured by the livestream audio, truckers complained about needing to wash their vehicles and seemed shocked at how poorly received they were by locals.

Karma is a wonderful thing when it slaps people who are richly deserving of being taken down a few notches.
