Because of everything that is going on in Ukraine right now, attention has been taken off of the protests in Canada as well as the U.S. version of the Freedom Convoy.

I can definitely understand why and we need to pay very close attention to what is happening in Ukraine, but we mustn’t forget about our freedoms here at home as well. More than one battle can be fought at a time.

The truckers in the United States have followed suit and have assembled a trucker’s convoy in Washington DC.

And it looks like some of the corporate heads are showing their true colors in the United States just like they did with Canada.

It’s being reported by at least one trucker that the Penske Corporation remotely shutdown a trucker’s vehicle because they do not support this sort of protest.

According to Yahoo,

A Burkburnett man taking part in a national truck convoy protest found himself without a ride Friday.

Jeff Sandberg has been vocal in his support of the convoy on social media and was driving a rig bearing a banner covered in slogans.

“We’re just trying to show what the people who back us believe — and our own beliefs — of what our country needs to go back to,” Sandberg told the New York Times Wednesday.

By Thursday night, Sandberg was sidelined because the company he rented his truck from, Penske, shut down his truck remotely.

“Penske does not support the people’s convoy movement,” Sandberg said on a Facebook stream. “So, I’m in a situation where I’m not going to be able to continue on.”

Thankfully, things are finally starting to ease up here in the United States has even some of the most liberal cities and states are easing their mask mandates. Of course, it is an election year and don’t think that this doesn’t play a role in that, because it certainly does. Democrats have lost a lot of ground and they’re hoping that by trying to return everything to a sense of normalcy, you’ll forget about they heavy hand they have had for the past two years.

Penske said that they didn’t cut the power to the truck, but instead they pulled him as one of their drivers because he had a “Let’s Go Brandon” banner on his truck.

According to one man, that’s not the truth because he has a good friend who is higher up in the company and relayed that information, but I guess we can’t truly know for sure.
