As Twitchy reported earlier, a Harvard professor and CNN analyst has had enough of the Freedom Convoy and says that authorities in Canada should “slash the tires, empty gas tanks, [and] arrest the drivers.” Americans seem to have had enough of the trucker protest; Matthew Yglesias says to send in the Marines:

Keith Olbermann isn’t going to put up with a “trucker” convoy in the United States:

Olbermann might not get his way, as the Department of Homeland Security has sent out a bulletin warning that a convoy could disrupt the Super Bowl near Los Angeles and make its way to Washington, D.C. for President Biden’s State of the Union address March 1.

NBC News reports:

Officials are warning that a trucker convoy could disrupt the Super Bowl this weekend near Los Angeles and make its way to Washington, D.C., for the State of the Union, according to a Department of Homeland Security bulletin obtained by NBC News.

The bulletin, which described the possible protest as “aspirational,” said the convoy could cause havoc on transportation routes to other U.S. cities.

A possible destination is Washington, where President Joe Biden is set to deliver the State of the Union address March 1, the bulletin says.

The bulletin warning of a U.S. protest says there are no indications that violence is planned or that domestic extremists are calling for violence. But if hundreds of trucks converge on key cities, the protest could disrupt transportation and emergency services through gridlock and counterprotests.

The protest could disrupt transportation? Isn’t that the point?

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez assured us that protests are supposed to make people uncomfortable.

You mean have politicians and the mainstream media cheer them on? OK.

In any case, this is just a bulletin put out by DHS.
