Tens of thousands of American truck drivers halted their work on Veteran’s Day, demanding that the nation’s truckers and blue collar workers be respected in what they’re terming the “Stop the Tires” movement.
The original Stop the Tires Facebook group has collected more than 60,000 members in just a few days, before facing left-wing censorship from Facebook oligarch Mark Zuckerberg.
The organizer of the #StopTheTires movement, truck driver Jeremy Rewoldt, has described the impromptu movement as an act of protest against Joe Biden’s plans to eliminate the use of fracking in America. He also cited pervasive crime tolerated in left-wing Democrat cities as a threat to the nation’s truckers.
The truckers standing behind the movement halted from transporting goods for 24 hours on Veteran’s Day. The trucking industry is one of the most common employers of American veterans. Truckers also trend conservative, with a majority of the essential workers supporting Donald Trump.
Rewoldt spoke of the origins of his #StopTheTires movement in an interview with One America News Network on Thursday.
Other truckers who have joined the movement have spoken of their reasons in doing so.

“You close down the restaurants that we eat at … then you close down our rest stops. Now in Wyoming they’re talking about not even plowing the highways this winter because they can’t afford it,” said one #StopTheTires supporter.
“And to top it all off, 70 million of you guys voted against the trucking industry, against first responders, against oil and gas – we ain’t gonna forget this shit. You already have, but we won’t.”

Some truckers who shut down did so in collective fashion at coordinated locations. Many truckers stopped their vehicles on the Maryland/Delaware border, an essential transport hub in supplying food, goods and services to residents of the eastern coast of the United States.
The truckers plan to continue their protest later this month, halting the transport of nonessential goods for four full days from 11/26 to 11/29.
Florida’s DeSantis Will Fly State Flags at Half Staff in Honor of Radio Legend Rush Limbaugh
Limbaugh was a Floridian.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis confirmed that he would issue an order to fly state and US flags at half staff in honor of radio legend Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh died earlier this week of cancer.
DeSantis spokeswoman Meredith Beatrice confirmed that the governor would issue the order after Limbaugh’s funeral arrangements are announced. The flags will be flown at half staff the day of the radio legend’s burial.
Originally a native of Missouri, Limbaugh moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in the late 1980’s. He became the most-listened to radio show host in the history of the United States, if not the world over the duration of his career.
Speaking of Limbaugh’s legacy Thursday on Fox News, DeSantis credited appearances on Limbaugh’s show as pivotal moments for his 2018 campaign for Governor of Florida.
“He had me on when I was running for Governor,” DeSantis said. “I was getting the tar kicked out of me every day and he had me on the week before the election in 2018. He didn’t have a lot of guests. I was honored to be on his show a couple of times.”
He would have been great in radio even without the conservative thing. He’s just that talented. Obviously he was a conservative icon up there with Scalia, Reagan, and Buckley,” said DeSantis of Limbaugh.
Florida Democrats have rushed to assail the Florida radio legend’s character and blast DeSantis for recognizing his life, accusing Limbaugh of being a “racist.”
