With the National Cherry Blossom Festival going on this weekend in DC, truckers with The People’s Convoy intend to hound flower lovers by yelling at them about freedom.

Because of the Cherry Blossom Festival, the truckers are spending their time harassing tourists and residents who are trying to enjoy the flowers by yelling at them about freedom.
Freedom cuts both ways. The truckers have the freedom to hold their protest, but the people who want to enjoy the cherry blossoms also have the freedom to not be bothered by some pee-stained truckers who are mad about, well, nobody is really sure what they are mad about, but they there.
The truckers need to go home. They tried to replicate the chaos in Ottawa and they failed. It didn’t work because they seem to have no clear reason or purpose for being in the DC area.
They all can probably sit on their porches and yell at their neighbors about freedom as they walk past their houses, and it would likely have the same level of impact that they are having currently.
Just when one thinks that the truckers can’t become more impotent, they yell at people trying to enjoy the cherry blossom festival.
At least, they haven’t assaulted anyone yet today.
