Part of that “Occupy” shit.
Places you’ll never see the SEIU thugs protest:
In front of Alec Balwin’s home. He’s partners with Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, and Exxon.
Morgan Stanley, the legendary Wall Street investment banking company founded by J.P. Morgan that took $10 billion in federal bailout funds back in 2008 during the financial crisis, is a “Corporate Partner” providing funding to the Carol Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund. Named for and listing as chairwoman actor Alec Baldwin’s breast cancer survivor mother.
With Alec Baldwin himself serving on the Fund’s “Advisory Board.”
Merrill Lynch, owned by the Bank of America, is also a “Corporate Partner” with the Baldwins, the company famously teetering on the edge in the 2008 crisis and being purchased by BOA. It was eventually revealed that Merrill Lynch used some $3.6 billion to pay out in “bonuses” — approximately a third of the amount received in federal TARP (Troubled Asset Relief Program).
Exxon Mobile has pitched in as well. The very emblem of Big Oil, Exxon Mobile is another “Corporate Partner” funding the Carol Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund.
Alec Baldwin is a board member of a family charitable fund which partners with and takes money from a veritable who’s who of that famous trifecta of liberal enemies: Wall Street, Big Oil and Corporations.
This would be the same Alec Baldwin who wrote this scathing piece over at the Huffington Post back in the fall of 2008 titled “To Hell With Wall Street” — livid over the Bush administration’s bailout of Wall Street demanding: “Don’t give them the dough.” One of the firms that took “the dough” to the tune of $10 billion — after laying off 5,000 employees –was, yes indeed, Baldwin’s “Corporate Partner” Morgan Stanley. “The dough” was eventually paid back, although not without considerable controversy surrounding the firm.
The home of a Bank of America executive was targeted by SEIU thugs who terrorized his young son, who was inside at the time.
I’m not a fan of BoA. It’s part of Obama’s bailout/Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac/corruption. When the Tea Party protested against BoA, it marched in from of the corporate headquarters, not the home of the CEO.
How about protesting in front of Michael Moore’s house?
Moore is a jet-setting multimillionaire living a life of luxury, leisure and fame. He travels in a private plane and a fleet of SUVs…In fact, he has misrepresented almost every facet of himself in order to forge a false “little guy” persona.
……His investment portfolio has included owning significant shares of stock in medical, health, pharmaceutical, defense and big oil companies, such as Pfizer, Merck, Eli Lilly, Pharmacia Corporation, Tenet Healthcare, Sunoco, General Electric and even the “evil” Halliburton. He has also invested in firms that outsource jobs to the Third World – including China, where slave labor is rampant. He wants to soak the rich with higher taxes, but uses accountants to exploit every loophole and exemption to reduce his burden to Uncle Sam. For Moore, profits evidently trump principle.
How ’bout it, Lerner? Moore is one of the biggest eeeeeevil capitalists on the planet.
Jeffrey Immelt, Obama’s GE corporate pal, made over $14 million in compensation while shipping jobs out of the country to China.
Jeffrey Immelt, General Electric’s (GE) CEO attacked other business leaders in a speech at West Point, saying that his generation “had succumbed to ‘meanness and greed’ that had harmed the US economy and increased the gap between the rich and the poor.”
Immelt neglected to mention…that he took home $14,100,000 in compensation last year. Guess he was talking about all those other greedy execs.
“We are at the end of a difficult generation of business leadership … tough-mindedness, a good trait, was replaced by meanness and greed, both terrible traits,” Immelt said, “Rewards became perverted. The richest people made the most mistakes with the least accountability.”
How about holding Immelt accountable?
Tim Robbins, Russell Simmons, Kanye West, Roseanne Barr, Danny Glover, Susan Sarandon, Mark Ruffalo, and all of the rest of the braying rich liberal Hollywood jackasses who drop by your little protests, are slumming. They get their photo-op, they talk all about solidarity, greedy capitalism, class warfare, and communist utopia, then they hop in their limos and go back to their mansions.
As long as the famous sympathizer is a liberal and talks a good spiel about “social justice”, they usually get a pass.
