UPDATED – What NOT to Ride: Choose Cabs or a Bus–NOT Lyft OR Uber–For Secure Borders

By Debbie Schlussel

*** UPDATE: Uber is bad, too, and also came out against the Trump immigration Executive Order, and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick quit Trump’s tech panel in protest. Take a bus or a cab (or a train). ***

If you need transportation–and you support Donald Trump’s temporary halt (which should be permanent) of faux-refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim countries (it should be expanded to all Muslims from any country)–then you should never ride Lyft again. Choose Uber or take a cab. Here’s why . . . .

Yesterday, I noticed the hashtags #UpLyft and #DeleteUber on the tweets a lot of the crazies on Twitter (follow me on Twitter) who were attacking President Trump’s temporary halt of some immigrants. It beckoned my curiosity. Then, in my inbox, I got an e-mail from longtime reader I Am Me, noting this:


Below is an email I received from Lyft followed by my response to them:

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
Lyft Co-Founders


If you insist on lying about what Trump did and donating to a cause that threatens the physical safety of my family, both of which are contained in the email below, you can count me as an ex customer.

Right on!

And there’s more to the story. Apparently, the lefty crazies are mad that Uber didn’t abide by some stupid one-hour cab strike and that Uber CEO Travis Kalanick advised Donald Trump on technology issues.

I’ve never used Lyft. But I did use Uber when my car wouldn’t start and I needed to be somewhere. It was a great experience.

Plus now I know the opposition, Lyft, supports voluntary jihad via immigration. Um, no thanks.

Show John & Logan where to go and where to shove it.

By the way, why don’t I see John & Logan taking in the Muslim refugees to live in their mansions?


It is very possible that Uber will come out with a statement similar to that of Lyft, but it’s notable that, so far, it hasn’t happened. If it does, I’ll update this post. But given that Uber CEO Kalanick has a relationship with President Trump, I doubt that’ll happen.

Debbie, I drive for Uber in my neighborhood for folks that I know and need to go to the airport. Not much else. I got an email from Uber pretty much stating the same as Lyft. They would supply council, we are the world, yada, yada, yada.

My daughter-in-law has marched in protest of Trump. I pretty much ignore her rantings as she is a teacher in the Communist Republic of California. Hopefully my son can have a positive influence on my two grandsons. He is a conservative, but for some reason doesn’t talk politics. Go figure.

WM: Please e-mail me the message from Uber or post it here in the comments section. Thanks for the information. DS

FYI, I am a card-carrying member of the ACLU. Yes I am!

Like all the Muslims, neo-Nazis, Black-supremacists, Commies and other no-goodnicks, I am not a member of the ACLU to defend “our” rights. I am a member to defend MY rights and screw everyone else. OK! So we know it doesn’t exactly work out for me. However, I only pay the minimum and they spend much more than that mailing me useless pleas for more money. (Making minimum membership donations to organizations you hate can be remarkably rewarding… especially to the US Postal Service. Tee hee!)

In addition, when berated by my liberal acquaintances, (not to mention friends and family) I often hold my ACLU card up to prove that I can never be liberal ENOUGH for them. In most cases, I play the ACLU card when liberals rant against Israel and for some reason, don’t seem to carry an ACLU card on them.

Their newsletter is quite interesting; if you don’t mind absurd reasoning on occasion.


There is NO Santa Claus (aka TINSC)

P.S. I do NOT approve of anyone giving the ACLU a million bucks. Just in case someone hasn’t figured that out yet.

I’ll be honest Debbie, I’ve never heard of “Lyft” before in my life, and after reading that little exchange between you and them, I won’t be doing any degree of business with Lyft for as long as I’m alive.

I, along with my family and relative members have used “Uber” for automobile transportation service, whether it’s for travels to and from either Kennedy or LaGuardia Airport (I’m a little more closer to LaGuardia Airport than Kennedy Airport where I live in New York, NY), and other destinations. But we shall see where still ends up of Lyft will be hit in a detrimental perspective of them being “social justice warrior” activists hacks where they’ve argued the “strawman” logical-fallacy notwithstanding to President Trump’s ban on immigration from “terrorist sponsoring” nations with all degrees of terroristic epidemics, etc. (and ironically, his executive order doesn’t highlight the word “Muslim”, so it has NO correlations to either religion, race/ethnicity, et al)!

SR: FYI, the interaction is between reader I Am Me and Lyft, not me. DS

    Thanks for the precise information Ms. Schlussel, I sorta didn’t read it on a necessity that one of the followers on this source highlighted the conversation to you, via email. I apologize anyhow.

Debbie has notified us that Lyft essentially wants to import Jihad. I will not use their service. Public transit would be preferable to giving a dime to such an anti-American outfit.

Hi Debbie.

Appreciate the valuable information. Not to hijack your post but do you have any additional information about the Starbucks plan to hire thousands of refugees? I’m not a fan of their bitter brew or sour liberal failed ideologies. Seems like a sound business model to have unvetted refugees from failed Islamic states preparing our morning coffee.

“16 UN nations, have had this same travel ban against Israeli passport holders for years” or am I wrong, and was there this much outrage or concern? These people

“By the way, why don’t I see John & Logan taking in the Muslim refugees to live in their mansions?”

I’ve often thought that too. Put up or shut up, especially Mark Zuckerberg who supports open borders, but is putting up a big wall around his estate in Hawaii. Why is that MZ? Also ex prez Barry is putting up a wall around HIS place. Why do libs NEVER back up their wailing and whining with action? Disgusting.

I drove for Lyft for a brief period last year, and used them whenever I needed transportation. After seeing this, not anymore. I have my doubts about Uber, so I’ll simply use Curb

Infidel on January 31, 2017 at 10:53 pm

Another good reason not to trust Uber: They can, have and will try to force their left-wing propaganda onto you, even if it means inconveniencing you (the customer/rider) and them not doing THE JOB THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO DO:

Craig on January 31, 2017 at 10:56 pm

Well, Travis Kalanick has quit Trump’s advisory board, so let’s not assume here that Uber is any better than Lyft. If you don’t have your own car, just use whatever works for you – be it a rental, Curb, or even Lyft or Uber

Infidel on February 2, 2017 at 6:37 pm

No uber,no lyft, no curb, no taxi, no rental: I drive myself or I don’t go at all. I don’t even fly. I’d take a train but their routes and travel times are ridiculous. Same for the bus. Can’t hitchhike anymore. Just stay home, it’s safer.

What a shame Dr Lobna Fakih ( Shia hijab Doctor in dearborn) won’t see my sick daughter or talk to me before paying 65$ – I begged her to see my daughter and I will go get the money and come back and she refused- are we living in lebanon?? #Shame on you #dr Lobna Fakih
