A trucker convoy that has rolled across the U.S. protesting coronavirus health measures and other government mandates met an unexpected roadblock in Oakland when neighbors came out in force to throw eggs at the group.
Video posted on YouTube (warning: video uses explicit language) shows a cadre of big-rig cabs and smaller vehicles blaring their horns as they rolled through a quiet residential street in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland. The caravan was protesting an abortion rights bill proposed by Democratic Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, who lives in the East Bay neighborhood.
The neighbors were not pleased.
Residents shouted, “Get out of town,” while hurling eggs, some of which pelted truckers who had their windows rolled down. In at least one instance, a hopping-mad truck driver stormed up to a resident who had been throwing eggs to scream expletives in her face.
The People’s Convoy was founded by a group of truckers in February to call for the end of COVID-19 mandates across the country. Most restrictions have been eased since its founding, but the group continues to protest what is says are rollbacks of civil rights….
The above comes from an April 25 story in the L.A. Times.
I support the egg-throwers. Blaring loud horns in a residential neighborhood is obnoxious. F around and find out.
Wikipedia lists buffy w as a main proponent of infanticide AB2223
You are correct. AB2223 is just about as close to Nazi legislation as one can get without a swastika on your forehead.
Do two wrongs make a right?
When BLM protesters roamed through quiet Los Gatos making a lot of noise and blocking streets, did you oppose that?
You’re presuming egg-throwing is wrong instead of a justified act of self-defense. In some parts of O-Town the truckers would have been met with gunfire.
How did the eggs defend anyone? What if people tried to justify throwing eggs at abortion mills?
O, you must be kidding! Egg-throwing as self-defense?
So, it would’ve been okay to egg the BLM protesters in Los Gatos?
The residents could’ve called the police about the excessive noise.
No need to be vigilantes and pull out their unregistered eggs.
Maybe State Senator Wiener and Assemblyperson Low need to cosponsor another law, outlawing eggs this time.
Besides, cholesterol is bad for people, who can’t be trusted with their own health.
You remind me so much of Fr. Stu before he had his motorcycle accident.
Our society has nearly reached the boiling point and the breaking point. Someday soon there will be a modern-day Boston Massacre or Boston Tea Party moment. Like the first poster said, F around and find out. People have had enough of being pushed around by government, by libs, and by inconsiderate aholes. Push the wrong person, and you’ll find out.
Defending their right to infanticide
by hurling unborn chickens at truckers.
Gadzooks, Mr. C.N. Coup,
if what you say is true, does
that make Buffy (Vampire) Wicks’
neighbors “mother-truckin’ chicken chuckers?”
“Buffy Wicks neighbors egg truckers” is a headline that rivals some in the Columbia Journalism Review’s lists of possibly misunderstood, but amusing, headlines, like “Students Cook and Serve Grandparents” and “Mayor forces out his No. 2 at City Hall.” Or, some church bulletin announcements:
“Ushers will eat latecomers.” “Low Self-Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 to 8:30 pm. Please use the back door.” “For those of you who have children and don’t know it, we have a nursery downstairs.” It took me only a few minutes to figure out what I think the headline meant. But, I did get a laugh out of it, even if it wasn’t a yolk.
