Sen. Rand Paul welcomes American trucker protest to 'make people think about the mandates'

The Blaze: 'On Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security issued a warning about potential truck protests emerging in the U.S., including in Los Angeles near the Super Bowl on Sunday. The DHS said it had "received reports of a convoy of truckers planning to potentially block roads in major metropolitan cities in the United States in protest of, among other things, vaccine mandates for truck drivers." Homeland Security said in a notice, "The group intends to start in California as early as mid-February and travel to Washington, D.C., as late as mid-March, reportedly gathering truckers as they travel across the country." The DHS noted that at this time these American trucker protests are "purely aspirational."


'Paul was asked about potential trucker protests in the U.S. during an interview with The Daily Signal on Thursday.


"I’m all for it. Civil disobedience is a time-honored tradition in our country, from slavery to civil rights, you name it," Paul responded. "Peaceful protest, clog things up, make people think about the mandates." "I hope the truckers do come to America," he continued. "It'd be great."
