It ain’t easy being a conservative these days. New reports are popping up every week about conservatives being denied service at restaurants and now even from a ride-sharing company solely because of their political beliefs.
Six Republican campaign volunteers have a similar story. They say they were kicked out of an Uber on Saturday in Raleigh, North Carolina, as their driver told them “welcome to the resistance.”
Mary Russell, a volunteer, and Chris Godbey, the Executive Director of the Young Republicans National Federation, sat down with the Daily Caller to share their horrifying experience.
Their crime? Talking politics amongst themselves in front of their driver — who apparently didn’t agree with their political views.
The Daily Caller reached out to Uber, a spokesperson said they were looking into the situation.
Republican Congressman Mark Meadows heard about the incident and took to Twitter to offer a $100 gift card for Lyft to those involved in the incident.
If anyone can get ahold of the contact information for these volunteers, please let me know and I will be glad to personally send each of them a $100 credit for Lyft. They’re doing incredible work!https://t.co/l3RGkPPKOb
