Conservatives Urged to Avoid Progressive Insurance

(CNSNews.com) - A conservative advocacy group is urging its supporters to cancel their policies with Progressive Insurance, after Peter Lewis, the company's chairman, reportedly gave $8.5 million to the American Civil Liberties Union. The multi-million dollar donation will help the ACLU advance its liberal agenda, including its "war on Christmas," the American Family Association warned. In an email message, AFA Founder and Chairman Don Wildmon urged his supporters to "sign a letter to Chairman Lewis, letting him know" that his donation to the ACLU is prompting conservatives to cancel their insurance policies. The AFA recently announced that it was ending its boycott of Target stores, after the retailer promised to use the word "Christmas" in its advertising and in-store promotions.

Peter Lewis is a fool! He could do a lot of good with his $$ but instead he uses it to destroy America.

They also run some pretty vicious ant-male ads as I recall.

No surprises there

I will cancel all of my policies with Progressive Insurance company and I will encourage my congregation to do the same thing.

Isn't Soros a major player with Progressive Insurance?

I didn't renew my Progressive auto insurance policy in November, partly because of the liberal causes the company and its executives support. Additionally, the insurance was more expensive than other companies.

Peter Lewis gave millions of dollars to Democrats during the presidential election. He and George Soros were the top contributors.

All policy holders of Progressive Insurance must understand that their premiums go towards supporting the libs.

Yeah, I insure my car and my boat with them. I guess I better start shopping around for new insurance.

I canceled my Progressive policy recently when I heard Bill O'Reilly telling of this connection. When I canceled, they asked me why and when I told the lady, she was not surprised. Capitalism works!

By far the cheapest car insurance is USAA. If you can find a way to qualify, then get it. (You need some connection to the military to qualify for Uniformed Services Auto Assoc USAA)

Great.......you're just now figuring out why it's called "progressive"? How many thousands of dollars have you already paid to this communist front organization?

Amazing to me that so many Conservatives haven't figured out why they call themselves "progressive". Maybe if they called themselves Bolshevik Liberal Commie Democrat Abortionist Transgender GunGrabber Car Insurance you would have gotten a clue.

Easy there, big fella.

Maybe you could see this as a positive development.

Progressive sucks.

Val finds out about it for first time on FR.

Val will talk to Andy about other insurance carriers.

Lighten up.

It's Christmas time.

I have USAA on everything except that, at least in Tennessee, they don't offer insurance on motorcycles so I ended up putting that with Progressive because it was one of the companies USAA referred me to at the time of purchase. Actually, I'm planning to move it to GEICO when the policy expires.

The so called cheating boyfriend being subjected to voodoo magic was a good one as well.

I'm a Progressive Insurance agent in Texas and have been for 10 years. I have probably 30 other companies to write for, but now that I know this I have to take action.

USAA has partnered with Progressive, which provides boat insurance to USAA members.
