Liberals are going absolutely nuts over this story. Do you think this tow truck driver had the right to do this? Or was this way too mean?
GREENVILLE, S.C. (WLOS) — A tow truck driver who left a woman stranded on the side of the interstate in North Carolina because of conflicting political views defended his actions because he said he’s had trouble with “that socialist mindset” before.
Ken Shupe, of Shupee Max Towing in Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina, went as far as to say he was “proud” of his decision to stand by his beliefs and would do it again.
Shupe was asked by a friend of 30 years to pick up Cassy McWade after she got into an accident on Interstate 26 in Asheville, North Carolina – about a 45 minute drive one way.
“I walked behind her car and that’s when I saw it. She had a ‘Feel The Bern’ sticker,” Shupe said. “She had a big Bernie Sanders sticker in the back window, which is all good. I was polite to her. I said ‘ma’am I’m not going to be able to tow your car today.’
“I said ‘I’m sorry but, it’s obvious you’re a Bernie Sanders supporter and a socialist and I think you need to call the government to get them to tow your car for free,'” he continued.
Shupe said he previously had issues with customers with “that kind of mindset” he said repeatedly. He remarked that these customers were the type to argue over a $50 towing bill.
“I’m not going to associated with them. I’m not going to do business with them,” Shupe said. “I’ve drawn a line in the sand. The side of my truck says Shupee. It doesn’t say freebie.”
