Lt. Col. (ret) Allen West has gotten behind many great causes in his career after the military. The Texas gubernatorial candidate is now putting his clout behind the American versions of the Freedom Convoy in Canada, and he’s not alone. Rocker Ted Nugent is going to participate as well.
Here’s the release from LTC West’s site:
Lt. Col. (Ret.) Allen West and Ted Nugent will be joining the American Truckers Freedom Convoy/Frontline Truckers as they travel across the state of Texas. This will occur sometime next week in south Texas.
Lt. Col. West stated:
“I am proud to join the peaceful protest inspired by our freedom-loving brothers and sisters to the north. Our constitution gives citizens the right to peaceably assemble and to petition their government for redress of grievances.
“The actions taken by the truckers in Ottawa and across Canada have been heroic, and I am proud to join a protest that was inspired by them. Totalitarian vaccine mandates and mask mandates have no place in the West let alone Texas. We cannot allow draconian measures to be cemented by leftist tyrants.”
Truckers have been the backbone of the American economy and supply chain, and their efforts to stand in the gap against tyranny have been inspiring. It is these working-class men and women who have answered the call to protect our constitutional rights from petty bureaucrats. God bless them for their stand.
Truckers and patriots across North America are doing what they can to oppose draconian vaccine mandates being invoked by governments and private companies alike. The Freedom Convoy in Canada has brought out the true totalitarian nature of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who reacted by activating the Emergencies Act and continuing to have convoy participants and their supporters persecuted even as the protests have ended in Ottawa.
It will be interesting to see how Democrats and “RINO” Republicans react to the American version. Those who support freedom will support the convoys. Watch to see who is silent on the issue, an indicator that they embrace the mandates.
