Portland Lawmaker Who Called 911 Over Lyft Dispute Blames ‘White Supremacists’

Last week, we reported that a Democratic politician from Portland, Oregon who wants to defund the police had called 911 over a dispute with her Lyft driver. Now, she’s speaking out to blame this incident on “white supremacists.”

City Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty called 911 on November 1 when she got into an argument with her Lyft driver in Seattle, Washington. After she demanded that the driver close the windows of his vehicle despite the fact that we are currently in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, he asked her to leave.

She refused, calling the police on him instead even though she has been fighting for police to never be called about incidents that are not crimes.

Hardesty Defends Calling 911

During a city council meeting last Thursday, Hardesty defended herself by bizarrely claiming that she was only motivated to call the police because of fears of far-right demonstrators.

“This is another example of being black in America and being put in a position where I have to be the one to look out for my personal safety,” she said, according to the New York Post. “I didn’t expect the Lyft driver to do it, certainly didn’t expect the police to do it. It was my responsibility to make sure I got home safe.”

“When you’re living in a city where white supremacists are proudly riding around in their big trucks with their flags and you’re a black person and somebody wants to put [you] on the side of the road at night,” Hardesty added. “Not gonna happen.”

Hardesty’s Hypocrisy Is Staggering

Hardesty has spent the past few months doing everything she can to fight for the police budget to be slashed in Portland, where radical liberals and far-right protesters frequently clash.

Clearly, she thinks that police should not be available to the rest us, yet she should be able to call them whenever the slightest thing goes wrong in her life.

The hypocrisy of liberals never ceases to amaze.
