Raleigh, N.C. — Six Republican volunteers were traveling in an Uber on Saturday from a campaign event to downtown Raleigh when they say their driver pulled over to a gas station and told them to get out.
“Welcome to the resistance,” the driver said while pulling away, according to Chris Godbey and Mary Russell, two of the passengers.
The article goes on to state the following:
The driver told the six volunteers, who are from the Washington, D.C., area, to exit the vehicle on the grounds that the driver “had the right to deny us service,” Russell said.
During the ride, Godbey told The News & Observer, the six volunteers talked about “current politics, energy policy and previous Republican campaign experience.”
“It was clear based on our mild conservative political talk that the driver realized we were Republicans,” Russell, who was the rider who ordered the Uber, told The Daily Caller.
Later, Russell said she received a message from the ride -sharing company saying she was inappropriate toward the driver.
“The group of riders was not engaged in rude or inappropriate conversation throughout the course of the ride,” Godbey said. “However, the political conversation led to the driver pulling over under the condition of getting gas, at which point he informed the riders that he ‘had the right to deny us service’ and then ‘welcome to the resistance.’”
Godbey said the driver then drove away, leaving the group about 10 minutes from their intended destination.
