Progressive Insurance Chairman Bankrolls Progressive Causes

by JERRY KANE


The Cleveland-based Progressive Insurance Corporation Chairman Peter Lewis is one of the major contributors to leftist causes in the United States. Progressive became the third-largest automobile insurer in the country by providing high-risk car insurance to people other companies would not insure. Currently, the company’s ads feature an obnoxious and rather disturbing brunette named Flo who dresses all in white and wears bright-red lipstick.

Lewis, whom Forbes magazine estimated his worth at $1.1 billion, was the former CEO of daddy’s company. In 2004, Lewis was the second leading contributor to 527 groups, donating $16 million to the Joint Victory Campaign and $2.5 million to Move On.Org. He also contributed $2.9 million to “America Coming Together,” a 527 organization that he and George Soros put together to defeat George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election. Byron York from CBS News explains:

Although Democrats often maintain that their unprecedented outside-the-party campaign against President Bush … was a broad-based, grassroots effort, it was, in fact dependent in substantial part on just five donors: financier George Soros, Progressive Insurance chairman Peter Lewis, Hollywood mogul Stephen Bing, and the California investors Herbert and Marion Sandler. Together, they spent about $78 million in the effort to defeat the president …

Since the early 1970s, Lewis has been involved with the Democrat Party, working as the Ohio finance chairman for George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign in part because of his hatred for Richard Nixon. In 2004, Lewis said that he had given away $250 million during his lifetime. Both he and Soros have been heavy contributors in a campaign to legalize marijuana, pushing the notion that it has medicinal benefits.

The self-described “half screwball, half businessman,” who once went to a Cleveland City Council meeting with its president wearing a Lone Ranger outfit, has reportedly given tens of millions of dollars to leftist groups including the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the Center For American Progress, MoveOn.org, andAmerica Coming Together.

Along with fellow traveler Soros, Lewis bankrolls a progressive movement that is out to destroy America’s economy and free enterprise system. He discreetly directs millions of dollars to leftist groups such as Democracy Alliance and Media Matters to promote Democrat Party candidates. In February 2008, Lewis donated money to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign, and is considered one of the five peoplemost responsible for Obama’s meteoric rise to power.

In addition, he belongs to and has donated tens of millions of dollars to the ACLU, which works tirelessly to tear down America’s Judeo-Christian heritage by:

  • Removing nativity scenes from public property, and forcing Christmas trees to be named Holiday trees when displayed on public property.
  • Banning Christmas trees and songs such as Silent Night from public schools.
  • Renaming Christmas break Winter break.
  • Suing cities for sponsoring Christmas parades.
  • Forcing states to legalize homosexual marriage.
  • Forcing libraries to remove porn filters from their computers.
  • Suing the Boy Scouts for not accepting homosexuals as scout leaders.
  • Helping legalize child pornography.
  • Legalizing live sex acts in bars in Oregon.
  • Protecting the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), a pedophile/pederasty organization that advocates adult sexual contact with children.
  • Censoring student led prayer at graduation.
  • Removing “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance and “In God We Trust” on currency.

Lewis’ willingness to bankroll progressive Democrats while filling his pockets in the process brings to mind Armand Hammer, the former head of Occidental Petroleum and business associate and friend to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin, who lavishly sponsored Al Gore Sr.’s and Jr.’s political careers.

It’s time conservative policy holders of Progressive Insurance realize that they are enabling Peter Lewis to advance the ACLU’s “war on Christmas” and the progressive agenda that is destroying America. There’s no need to wonder anymore why the company’s named progressive.

    Progressive Insurance has a big ad budget and yet their "claims adjusters" are hired work at home part time folks. Two years ago when my son's car was hit by a drunk driver who was insured by this company, they tried to lowball him on the settlement, tried to take advantage of his youth and dragged out payment for months to the point where he lost his job because he didn't have transportation. They would change their story, their agents would not return calls and only when we got a lawyer and discovered that the guy who was driving a Jag had three prior DUI arrests, did they settle. SIX MONTHS LATER. It's a terrible company with a good marketing campaign and YES their CEO does contribute heavily to liberal candidates and causes. So if you have this insurance, you not only have crappy insurance, but you are supporting Obama.

    I knew this, and instructed our insurance Broker that Progressive Insurance would be unacceptable, and to not try to acquire it for us.

    I suspected there was good reason for my disliking the name of Progressive Insurance.
