Abandoning Bernie’s Supporters

A tow truck driving Trump supporter brags about abandoning a Bernie supporter on the highway.


It’s bad enough that a Trump supporting tow truck driver saw fit to deny to assist a stranded motorist in North Carolina because she had a Bernie Sanders sign in her car, but he sees fit to brag about it.

Ken Shupe, the driver of the tow truck, boasted, “I’m a conservative Christian, I’ve just drawn a line in the sand. I’m not going to associate or conduct business with them.”

It would seem that Mr. Shupe missed Sunday school the week his church taught “Love thy neighbor.” Of course, I’m not surprised a Trump supporter would be so utterly lacking in virtue and quick to defame the character of others. Shupe claimed that he has towed other socialists who have seen fit not to pay him. Of course, since Shupe had no way of knowing whether Cassandra McWade would have stiffed him he bore false witness against her by accusing her of sins she did not commit. To make matters worse, McWade is disabled.

If Trump supporters were smart the last thing they would want to do is to alienate Bernie supporters. After all, Trump has been trying to court Sanders’ supporters telling MSNBC last week, “Bernie Sanders has a message that’s interesting. I’m going to be taking a lot of the things Bernie said and using them.” A Trump supporter stranding a Bernie supporter in the middle of I-26 is hardly a way to win friends and influence people.

Unfortunately, we have a become a country of Christian bakers who refuse to make cakes for same sex couple and Muslim cab drivers who refuses to transport Christians with guide dogs or alcohol in their possession. You would think though that a Trump supporter would have had the business sense not to alienate a customer. But now one must agree with one’s politics in their entirety to expect goods and services. No wonder our economy hasn’t fully recovered.

In case you’re wondering, it would have also been wrong for a tow truck driver who felt the Bern to burn a Trump supporter in need of a boost. Otherwise we could soon hear about Jeff Lord being stranded on Route 2.
