A wrong turn for Lyft?
Lyft seems to be in the oncoming lane, with its recent mail to customers. I woke up this morning, to find this in my e-mail inbox:
“Hi [Name Redacted],
We created Lyft to be a model for the type of community we want our world to be: diverse, inclusive, and safe.
This weekend, Trump closed the country’s borders to refugees, immigrants, and even documented residents from around the world based on their country of origin. Banning people of a particular faith or creed, race or identity, sexuality or ethnicity, from entering the U.S. is antithetical to both Lyft’s and our nation’s core values. We stand firmly against these actions, and will not be silent on issues that threaten the values of our community.
We know this directly impacts many of our community members, their families, and friends. We stand with you, and are donating $1,000,000 over the next four years to the ACLU to defend our constitution. We ask that you continue to be there for each other – and together, continue proving the power of community.
John & Logan
Well, well, well. Around the world, huh? I didn’t realize that seven countries, clustered together (all in the middle east), all of which have major problems with radical muslim extremism, constituted “from around the world”. Get fucked, Lyft. Here is my response:
What a stupid move on your part. Stupid because you are horribly misinformed like many in the west and certainly the bulk of the liberal tech and entertainment world.
I depend on you to get around. I don’t know how to drive after never learning to due to several serious car accidents I was involved in as a teen.
But now I’m seriously considering deleting your app from my phone and boycotting you and letting everyone know about why and being a real pain in the ass for you and your Muslim handlers working through the ACLU.
First things first. You need to understand something about Islam. It is not a religion. It is not a cult. It is a totalitarian political system bent on world domination that wages war on all levels against those who stand in the way of its goals. For the rest, there is a tax and slavery. Do you know what a Dhimmi is? No? Well, I suggest you learn. That and I also suggest you learn the real history of Islam. Now on to the second point and that simply is for you to learn about what this ban actually is, means and why it’s completely legal, and no different than what Obama did in 2011.
Please read the articles here.
President Trump is faithfully executing the oath of office that he took on January 20th, 2017. Unlike say… OBAMA. Quite frankly you wouldn’t know what our values are as a country or the Constitution if Abe Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, JFK and Ben Franklin rolled up in an UBER with George Washington driving and slapped you in the face with it.
Don’t be dhimmis. Smarten up and reverse your support for the ACLU in this manner and revise your bullshit statement to your customers.
Oh yeah…One last thing, you assholes: SAFETY FIRST!
