CNN Security Analyst Unleashes Tirade Over Trucker Protests: ‘Slash the Tires, Empty Gas Tanks’

Washington, D.C. — A former Obama Administration official and current analyst for CNN unleashed a tirade on social media today over the ongoing trucker protests.

Juliette Kayyem is a Professor in International Security at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and also works as CNN’s on-air national security analyst.


She took to social media on Thursday to sound off about ongoing trucker protests to draconian COVID-19 mandates — such as the current blockade at the Ambassador Bridge — which continues blocking trade between the U.S. and Canada.

“Slash the tires, empty gas tanks, arrest the drivers, and move the trucks,” she Tweeted.

Kayyem, who once served as President Obama’s Assistant Secretary for Intergovernmental Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), didn’t stop there.


“Trust me, I will not run out of ways to make this hurt: cancel their insurance; suspend their drivers licenses; prohibit any future regulatory certification for truckers, etc.,” she urged.


Further, Kayyem blasted truckers involved in the protests as an “irrational gang” and implored governmental leaders to “stop being so nice.”

Interestingly, Canada’s Transport Minister Omar Alghabra also recently expressed similar sentiments saying truckers involved in the Freedom Convoy are trying to “overthrow” the government.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Keith Wilson, lead counsel for Freedom Convoy, decried language used by some in the media, as well as a number of Canadian governmental officials, as “dangerous.”  

“At no time has anyone involved in the core group of the Freedom Convoy asked for anything other than their Charter Rights be restored, the rule of law to be respected and the mandates that arbitrarily discriminate against them and usurp their Charter Rights be stopped,” he said. “This spin by some of the mainstream media that somehow those involved in Freedom Convoy are seeking more than what I’ve described is completely inaccurate.”

  1. Maybe it’s time to give CNN and the media the treatment they would have visited on truckers. I think truckers nd their supporters may have to show her that it is they who spark violence and deserve to reap the rewards of their own suggestions. I don’t advocate violence, but it was her suggestions that could truly set some folks into a warlike mentality. The lady is a fool.
