The group "Truckers for the Constitution" is threatening that tractor-trailer drivers will intentionally clog the inner loop of the Washington, D.C. beltway beginning on the morning of Oct. 11 unless their demands are met.
Because nothing says "Democracy!" quite like a threat to hold an entire city hostage accompanied by a list of demands.
Organizers of the three-day ride allegedly want to call attention to a litany of trucker frustrations and express their disapproval of national political leaders, though like many right-wing dissent groups, what precisely they claim to want to call attention to has changed several times in the group's short history.
Speaking with U.S. News, Earl Conlon, a Georgia trucker organizing the event, stated that tractor-trailer drivers will circle the beltway "three lanes deep" as he rides with other participants to Congress to seek the arrest of congressmen, allegedly for disregarding the Constitution.
"Everybody that doesn't have a supporter sticker on their window, good luck," said Conlon. "Nobody in, nobody out."
Only D.C. commuters who who have "T2SDA" – an acronym for the event's original name, "Truckers to Shut Down America" – will be allowed.
"It's going to be real fun for anyone who is not a supporter," said Conlon, "[and] if cops decide to give us a hard time, we're going to lock the brakes up, we're going to stop right there, we're going to be a three lane roadblock."
Demands from the group naturally include the immediate arrest of President Obama and various members of Congress, specifically naming Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA).
"We're not asking for impeachment," said Conlon. "We're asking for the arrest of everyone in government who has violated their oath of office."
