People’s convoy was hilariously joined by a DC lone cyclist
The People’s convoy got a taste of its own medicine Saturday afternoon in Washington, DC, when a cyclist traveling at a snail’s pace brought truckers to a near stop by taking over one lane ahead of them.
“What are you doing? You have a bunch of trucks behind,” a convoy live streamer and WYSIWYGTV YouTuber (pronounced ” whizzy-wick”) yelled at the unidentified cyclist during a confrontation to him. “You have a bunch of trucks behind us.”
The cyclist then replied: “What is that? I can’t hear you… I can’t hear you, what do you say? ”
After the streamer shot back, “You have a bunch of trucks behind you,” the cyclist replied, “I’m sorry, I can’t hear you – it’s too loud.” The cyclist continued ahead of the truck at a brisk pace, unmoved by the mass of large rigs honking behind him.
The pivotal moment came as the convoy of right-wing trucks entered their third consecutive week of trying and not causing mayhem in the Beltway.
On Saturday afternoon, The Daily Beast reported that several anti-vaccination proxies were packing up in a white Tesla driven by a person believed to have engaged in anti-convoy behavior. The incident was recorded on a live stream by “Sasnak,” a leading convoy participant. “A Tesla swerved in… braking hard and causing an emergency,” the YouTuber claimed, adding that his colleagues then brought the car to a halt.
Sasnak then provoked his fellow truckers for their actions towards the Tesla driver. “It is illegal. You can not do it. You can’t block someone like that,” said the trucker. “That is considered kidnapping. The person in the car has the right to shoot at him! ”
Sasnak did not return the Daily Beast’s request for comment on the incident. But on Sunday afternoon, during a YouTube live stream, he added: “Thoughtful talking with a few of them. One guy is still mad at me.”
A Maryland State Police official told The Daily Beast on Saturday night that “no kidnapping occurred” on the interstate. “Kidnapping and boxing a car and road rage are two different things,” the official added.
Arriving at the Sunday morning meeting, the convoy focused on absentee leader Brian Brase, who had been away for the weekend to visit family in Northwest Ohio — a move that confounded his colleagues.
While camping for weeks at the Hagerstown Freeway, the convoy has continued to make daily trips on the Ring Road and recently right into DC. However, truckers seem to have a hard time navigating downtown traffic, often running red lights. The group was caught with mockery inside the city from both pedestrians and commuters, whom the convoy labeled “antifa”.
