    Progressives Bite Themselves in the Ass

    Think Progress Attacks Bank Partially Owned by Its Own Donor | Washington Free Beacon

    The activist arm of the Center for American Progress (CAP) on Thursday attacked a Swiss bank partially owned by a major CAP donor for allegedly offering tax avoidance advice to U.S. corporations.
    A writer at the ThinkProgress blog detailed a Swiss court filing alleging that Swiss bank Julius Baer “told hundreds of Americans how to evade U.S. taxes on a total $600 million in wealth.”
    Julius Baer is a publicly traded company. One of its largest shareholders is Bank of America, which is a CAP donor.
    It is not known how much Bank of America donated to CAP, since the group will not release that information.
    The ThinkProgress article did not disclose that a major Julius Baer shareholder is also a contributor to the blog’s parent organization.
    This is really funny, a Progressive Organization goes after it's own donor for providing tax avoidance advise to US corps. It appears that the largest share owner of the Swiss bank that has committed this horrible crime is no other that one of the Progressives' biggest donors. Talk about biting yourself in the ass, keep it up lefties your stupidity is showing and the world is laughing at you, DUMBASSES.

    People behaving badly should only be pointed out if they belong to the other party. Got it.

    Well the REAL dumbass is the bank shareholder who supports the crowd that would like nothing better than to see his head on a pike.

    He's pointing out that they were willing to speak the truth about someone on their own side. That's admirable.

    According to the OP, you should cover it up if they are in your party. No surprise.

    Did you read the link? They didn't know that one of their primary co-sponsors owned the bank that was giving the advise. So how in the world could they speak the truth about something they knew nothing about?

    According to the op, if you don't know what you are talking about, you should keep your mouth shut.
