Juliette Kayyem (CNS national security analyst) demanded drastic action from police officers in the wake of the trucker protests at the Ambassador Bridge. This included making arrests, slashing tires, and making arrests.
Kayyem, a lecturer at Harvard University and former member of Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, made her comments in a social media posting about the ‘Freedom Convoy.’
The Canadian ‘Freedom Convoy’ has been a massive and peaceful demonstration against the US-Canada cross-border vaccine mandate.
The Ambassador Bridge, which connects Windsor (Ontario) and Detroit (the largest bridge between Canada and the U.S.), has been blocked by truckers for approximately five days.
Kayyem called on law enforcement to take severe measures.
“The convoy protest, applauded by right-wing media as a ‘freedom protest,’ is an economic and security issue now,” she tweeted. “It accounts for 28% of the annual trade movements between Canada and America.”
“Slash the tires, empty gas tanks, arrest the drivers, and move the trucks,” Kayyem added.

CNN Analyst: Police Should Slash Truck Tires
It’s difficult to understand how a former DHS official would think it a good idea to slash the tires and siphon gas from vehicles if the goal is to clear the blockade.
Kayyem probably didn’t think the tweet through very carefully. But she wasn’t prepared to walk away from her ridiculous ideas. She actually expanded upon them in a subsequent tweet.
“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 continued.
“Have we learned nothing? These things fester when there are no consequences.”
Let them empty their tanks and cut their tires before moving the trucks. What would we do without “Nat’l security experts?”

There was much outrage at her suggestion, it is evident.
Political commentator Stephen Miller asked, “You think you’re the good guy here?”
“Yes,” she replied. “This isn’t about vaccines. Do not become vaccinated. You have the right to make that choice. You made a bad choice. This is a fatal one. Just don’t close an international border with your whining. You guys have so many emotions. It’s not personal.”
You can be sure. Kayyem is calling on police to respond like a scorned girlfriend in a Carrie Underwood song … but it’s everybody else who is emotional.

RELATED: CNN Personality Claims Trump Is ‘Leader Of A Terrorist Organization’
Juliette Kayyem is yet another example of the type of unhinged extremists CNN has hired as analysts for their programming for years, and at least partially a reason they can’t get intelligent people to watch their shows.
This isn’t the first time she’s engaged in extreme rhetoric and hyperbole to get attention.
Kayyem, days after the Capitol riot, referred to then-President Trump as the “leader of a terrorist organization.”
“Trump is the spiritual, but I will also say operational leader of this domestic terrorism effort,” she ranted. “He tells them where to go. He tells them exactly what they should do. He tells them why they’re angry.”
“Trump is the spiritual leader for domestic terrorists and he is their operational leader. They are told what to do by him. Now, total isolation. 25th A. Yes. Impeachment. Yes. Deplatforming. Yes. Yes. We’re still at the tactical phase in a counterterrorism campaign. Enough with unity.” @cnn pic.twitter.com/8UkZBzS4ai

CNN’s Juliette Kayyem calling on law enforcement to slash the tires of truckers isn’t the only one calling for a muscular response to the ‘Freedom Convoy.’
The Biden administration has urged Canada to use its “federal powers” to end the protest.
“(DHS) Secretary Mayorkas and (DOT Secretary Pete) Buttigieg each spoke with their Canadian counterparts, urging them to use Federal powers to resolve this situation at our joint border,” a White House official said in a statement.
Imagine the fury if Trump told a country to stop threatening a nation. Leftist protest?
