Ride-sharing platform Lyft is supporting the left’s campaign to demonize guns and gun-owners in a very direct way: by offering free rides to participants in the “March for Our Lives” protest.
The protest, which claims to be “created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country,” will be held in Washington, DC on March 24th along with “sibling marches” in other locations.
However, this event is not the organic organization of concerned young people it portrays itself to be. It is actually an initiative of the Bloomberg-backed, anti-2nd Amendment “Everytown for Gun Safety” organization. Everytown is also the parent organization of Shannon Watts’s Moms Demand Action.
This isn’t the first time Lyft has waded into political waters in support of the left’s policy agenda, either. Just over one year ago, Lyft pledged a $1 million donation to the ACLU in response to President Trump’s executive order limiting immigration from areas of the world with histories of terrorism.
Lyft is also a corporate supporter of the National Urban League, which has called for a repeal of “stand your ground” laws, and the Center for American Progress, an organization that advocates against national concealed carry.
