A group of freedom-loving truckers appearing almost to have accepted a baton from the 9/11 Two Million Biker D.C. rally. They plan to shut down America on the weekend of Oct. 11-13, by calling a trucking general strike.
Four days after the crowded Sept. 11 biker rally that far surpassed the paltry showing at the so-called “Million Muslim March,” the truckers set up a Facebook page, “Truckers To Shut Down America.”
The page describes its mission this way:
The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!
The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Workers will call in sick! Consumers will not buy or sell anything on this date! Stay home! Buy nothing!
“The truckers are going to shut D.C. down for three days” to protest government corruption and stand up “to D.C. and the bulls**t,” activist Kevin Allen said in an audio recording he posted on YouTube.
If the group gets enough truckers to show up next month, there’s little doubt it can bring the nation’s capital to a standstill. Although the president will still be able to make it to the links via Marine-1, other politicians will find it hard making it to their round of cocktail parties.
The truckers may just do it. Their Facebook page has been up for three days, and it already has more than 22,000 “Likes.”
