The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a memorandum to law enforcement partners warning of a possible convoy of American truckers to protest vaccine mandates in the United States.
Documents first obtained by yahoo news Note that the agency “has received reports of truckers potentially planning to block highways in major metropolitan cities across the United States in protest of, among other things, vaccine mandates for truckers.”
The target date is Super Bowl Sunday, a very American counterpart to the Canadian ‘Freedom Convoy’.
A department source told the outlet that the trucker convoy “is absolutely a real concern.”
“They will definitely follow the Canadian model and shut down Washington,” the official said.
The Canadian ‘Freedom Convoy’ has been a massive and peaceful demonstration against the cross-border vaccination mandate between the United States and Canada.

A grade earned up the hill gives more details about the supposed time frame in which a convoy of American truckers could take place.
“The convoy will potentially start in California in mid-February, which could affect the Super Bowl scheduled for February 13 and the State of the Union address scheduled for March 1,” they inform their enforcement partners. law.
The DHS warning notes that the trucking protest is “purely aspirational” as it is only in the online discussion phase, but “this could change quickly.”

The memo, according to The Hill, notes that the protests have no plans to cause violence.
Still, they are concerned that “the convoy could severely disrupt transportation, federal government, and law enforcement operations through gridlock and potential counterprotests.”
Because the mandates themselves have not disrupted the trucking industry and law enforcement, leading to mass termination of employees.

DHS Issues Terrorist Threats About ‘Disinformation’
Coincident in its time, but perhaps emblematic of DHS’s flawed approach today, the warning memo about a protest by truckers in the United States comes the same week the agency issued a new summary report on terrorist threats focused on the spread of ” misinformation.”
The bulletin “Summary of the Terrorist Threat to the National Territory of the United States”, published on Mondayindicates that the United States is in a “heightened threat environment,” particularly against “false narratives” about COVID.
In it, they also focus on vaccine mandates.
“COVID-19 mitigation measures, particularly COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates, have been used by domestic violent extremists to justify violence since 2020,” they write.
Has there been a massive outbreak of violent events regarding vaccine and mask mandates? an associated press report last August cites a handful of unfortunate but minor incidents to create a narrative that the protests are turning violent.
Surprisingly, the AP report focuses intensely on incidents involving parents opposing mask and vaccine mandates.
You may recall that the Department of Justice (DOJ) coordinated with the National School Boards Association (NSBA) to create a controversial letter that compared concerned parents to domestic terrorists.
That letter requested an investigation into whether the clashes of outraged parents regarding mask mandates, among other things, it amounted to a violation of the Patriot Act.
So some of us wonder, @DHSgov …

These latest DHS documents expand on that.
First, they planted the seed that any future trucker convoys in the United States will be motivated by “misinformation” about vaccine and COVID mandates.
Second, they bundle such ‘misinformation’ into a group involved in warning about new terrorist threats.
And now, they are warning police to be on the lookout for this group of ‘uninformed’ truckers trying to sow discord over the federal government.
DHS has identified the enemy, and the enemy, it seems, is the truckers fighting for their lives, their freedom, and their pursuit of happiness.

The DHS official tells Yahoo News that the agency and a variety of US law enforcement agencies were conducting calls and planning sessions to “figure out what to do” if Washington, DC is shut down, something they call “a real possibility.”
When the federal government shut down truckers, everyone took notice. The shelves were empty and thousands upon thousands of people descended on Ottawa to protest.
If the federal government shuts down, would anyone notice?
