Progressive Insurance Supports MoveOn.Org & ACLU. Gave Almost $30,000,000 To Soros's Radical Causes.

PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE is owned by Peter Lewis: Who is he? Read this...

You’ve seen and smiled at the Progressive Insurance TV commercials with the cute, but slightly ditsy brunette dressed in white. Well, you’re about to learn the rest of the story:

PROGRESSIVE AUTO INSURANCE has great TV commericals, but waht you might not know is that the Chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis, one of the major funders of Obama, ACORN and other far-leftist causes in America .

Between 2001 and 2003, Lewis funneled $15 million to the ACLU, the group most responsible for destroying what's left of Americas Judeo-Christian heritage. Lewis also gave $12.5 million to MoveOn.org http://moveon.org/ and American Coming Together, two key propaganda and thuggery arms of the socialist far-left in America.

His funding for these groups was conditional on matching contributions from George Soros, the America-hating socialist who is the chief financier of the Obama political machine!

Lewis made a fortune as a result of capitalism, but now finances a socialist movement that threatens to destroy the American free enterprise system. They are also targeting television shows on Fox News and their conservative hosts.

Peter Lewis is making a fortune off of conservative Americans (who buy his auto insurance) but he wants to dismantle the very system that made him wealthy. He's banking on no one finding out who he is, so STOP buying Progressive Insurance and pass this information on to all your friends.

Progressive. The name should have been a tip off.

Chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis

He's given millions to the Violence Policy Ctr & other anti-gun organizations for years.

Here in B.C. a Crown Corporation (i.e. government agency) has the monopoly on auto insurance. Just like government health care — there is no private sector alternative.

Wouldn’t it be ironic (a notable schadenfreude moment) if the “progressives” that Progressive donates to instituted government auto insurance?

Old news. This guy has been the American Soros for decades. Just a couple years ago this POS gave the ACLU a $1 mill bailout when all their rich contributors took a hit when Wall Street melted down. Above all of that, his company has the crappies insurance you can buy. Terrible customer service and always trying to cheat you on payouts. Makes sense since he is a corrupt Progressive.

You and I, my friend, have very different definitions of "cute." From the first commercial I thought she was a failed attempt by Madison Avenue to come up with an edgy and memorable characature, trying too hard to be funny and coming off as predictable and annoying.

I did several months ago on my motorcycles and found an alternative (Dairyland) which was about 30% less expensive.

Old News about Progressive.

Just another bunch of ignorant Communists who are content to make billions off the very capitalist system they are attempting to destroy.

The very definition of jaw-dropping idiocy.

I agree but according to marketing statistics, Flo has a high recognition and favorabilility quotient.

Don't forget TV commercials are pitched to an audience that thinks Obama is cool.

I can’t stand “Flo”. Can't remember where I saw it (probably the Freep), but I understand Flo is also a huge Obamatron. Another reason not to TIVO around their commercials.

Yes, they need to go after those greedy Oil Companies that average a whopping 5% every year and are “raping” the the public with “Record” profits. (They never say the percentage.) But the Insurance Scammers made around 20% last year.

If anyone wants an insurance company that will defend you in a lawsuit if you have to defend yourself in your home, you can pm me.

Most companies offer no coverage at all. A few will but will only defend you IF you are determined by a judge or jury to be innocent and then you get sued later by the criminal or their family. The initial case and costs (at least 40-50 grand) falls on you. This company, will decide for itself based on what you tell them and the police reports/evidence and if they believe you acted in self defense, will defend you in court. If they believe there’s no case and you did act in self defense, they will fight because there’s no reason for them to pay out any money to the criminal you injured or killed in self defense.

Why would a home insurance company do this? Because of your homeowners’ liability clauses. They go after your insurance company for compensation.

Progressive's commercials have always been stupid; that terrible looking black haired woman the the simping customers is enough to make one put one's shoe through the new Visio flat screen TV.

But enough about progressive (their name says it all, don't it!!??).

Hows about somebody on FR doing the research to identify those insurance companies that are solidly or even leaning to the right?

Peter Lewis also donates approx. $15 million (that's fifteen million dollars) to Planned Predators every year. Interesting when you consider that he's subsidizing an organization that's hell-bent on killing 1.5 million humans each year . . . each one of them a potential customer of his own insurance. The absurdity of this is incredible.

Can you imagine going to your boss and saying, "Hey, I found a way to donate money to a group that will kill 1.5 million possible customers each and every year! Can I have a raise?"

So, whenever I see pancake makeupped, pasty, red lipsticked Flo on the commercials, I turn the channel instantly.

I'm ashamed of the Cleveland Indians for letting this company give its name to their stadium: Progressive Field.

LOL! I dunno. Progresso is an Italian word, and they’re pretty commie over there as far as I know.

I’m glad my mother’s parents got out of there and came here to have their 14 children.

I like Progresso soup though. Probably won’t stop buying it.

Can I have some of your coupons?

I did. Went to Geico. It wasn't so much their liberal policies that caused me to move (several years before I knew they were big lib donators), it was the bull-dyke bitch of an agent who tried to screw me that did it.

“I wonder how many “conservatives” will cancel their insurance. Probably not many.”

I found out about this a while back and canceled my policy with them. I had my motorcycle insurance with them for a while. I moved it to the same company I used for my home and car insurance and now I am saving over $300 from what Progressive charged me. With them my yearly insurance was $600. After switching to a better company I only pay $300.

SO, this is one “conservative” who did it. Progressive and Flo can kiss my fuzzy butt.

Those of you who are cutting personal costs down, becoming more self-sufficient, and therefore, have no payments to make on vehicles, use an insurance broker to get the lowest cost liability insurance. Pay no attention to which company is chosen for the time being by the broker, as that will change fairly often.

Most, if not all insurance companies lean to the left. Some of the oldest ones were funneling money to pro-divorce feminist organizations during the ‘90s.

I was originally insured with State Farm since 1965 when I was 14. Last year I switched to an independent insurance broker for a third of what I was paying State Farm. State Farm called begging and crying but said they couldn’t touch the price I was getting from the independent.

Now, get this. My daughter and her husband switched TO State Farm from Geico and got practically the same rate I got from the independent.

State Farm was willing to give a good rate to a new customer but wasn’t willing to cut the rate for a customer of 46 years.

I have never been a Progressive customer, but my wife was sideswiped by one of them a year and a half ago. It didn’t help that my wife didn’t call the police to file a report, but Progressive found her partly at fault and refused to pay a dime.

I am a current State Farm customer, and I plan to shop my auto and rental policies when my current policies are up. The initial rate I got was good, but they have jacked up my insurance rates every time I renew.

I'm a very satisfied USAA insurance member since 1985. If you've ever served in the military they're worth checking out. I believe they used to be open to officers only - but now they even offer insurance (among a host of other services)to family members of those in the military.

Plus, they've got the world's best customer service.
