More proof of what awful human beings leftists are. And what utter hypocrites they are.
from the Blaze:
Portland politician who wants to defund police calls 911 on Lyft driver for canceling ride. The driver? He had enough of her ‘rude and abusive’ words.
‘She was not a pleasant person. … She was very disrespectful to me, made me uncomfortable.’
The ironies are plentiful.
Portland City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty has been pushing to defund the police at a time when officers have been overwhelmed by left-wing rioters in the Oregon city’s streets since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in late May.
Specifically, she wants cops pulled from 911 calls that don’t involve crimes, the Oregonian reported.
Oh, and she also oversees Portland’s emergency dispatch system, the paper said.
Got that so far?
Now get this: Hardesty actually called 911 recently over a Lyft driver who abruptly canceled her ride after he said she was “rude and abusive” toward him, the Oregonian reported.
“She was not a pleasant person,” driver Richmond Frost told the paper, adding that he didn’t even know who Hardesty was until after the ordeal had concluded. “That has nothing to do with her political position as a Portland council person. I’m out here doing my job. She was very disrespectful to me, made me uncomfortable. I don’t feel like I have to sit in a car for anyone to have to argue unrelentingly and be rude and abusive, telling me what I have to do in my own vehicle.”
The skinny on the short, strange trip
On Nov. 1, Hardesty ordered a pickup from a casino resort in Washington state — and things went downhill right off the bat when there was a pickup location mixup, the Oregonian said, adding that Frost said Hardesty got angry about it.
Then the driver said as he was headed out of the casino lot, Hardesty demanded he close the windows and that she wouldn’t ride with them down, the paper said.
