Sunday, August 07, 2022

According to a report from the Washington Post, a small group of die-hard conservatives and Donald Trump supporters who took part in the the so-called "People's Convoy" have yet to go home and have been living in their cars or vans for weeks, meeting each day and wondering why their movement didn't catch on.

Actually he said something about a sucker born every minute. That's why he knew to switch from Dem to Pub when he decided to run for office.

"living in their cars or vans for weeks, meeting each day and wondering why their movement didn't catch on."

Because it was stupid. That's why.

Protest high gas prices by driving a rig that gets 8 mpg across country? Smurt.

Protest outside the white house? Smurt.

Maybe if these dumbsh*ts took the protests to the homes of Oil CEO's, you know the one's who actually control the price of gas, it would have caught on.

And unfocussed, if it was anything like the Canucker Truckers. Ask any ten of them what they were protesting and you'd get ten different answers.

Maybe, in their haste, the dummies forgot to calculate gas money to get back home .

It can become bitter cold in DC when winter sets in. If they don't hurry up they'll become a latter day Donner party.

Actually, they were/are doing the kinds of things people tend to do before their trade is automated into oblivion. They're just giving the 1% an excuse.

These idiots probably ran out of gas and money. DC should charter one of the immigrant buses to take them to Texas.

They were planning on living large off of idiot donors but they dried up early.

"Do we have a Second Amendment right to throw off a tyrannical government? Yes. That's what the Constitution says."

Lol the Constitution does not say that. The Declaration of Independence sort of says that, but the Constitution was ratified 12 years later.

Make no mistake, these people will start murdering americans the moment trump tells them to. They're die hard fascist cult members.
