A viral email I got: PROGRESSIVE INSURANCE is owned by Peter Lewis: Who is he? Read this... You've seen and probably smiled at the clever Progressive Insurance TV commercials. Well, as Paul Harvey would say, "You're about to learn the rest of the story". PROGRESSIVE AUTO INSURANCE You know their TV commercials, the ones featuring the ditsy actress all dressed in white. What you might not know is that the Chairman of Progressive is Peter Lewis, one of the major funders of 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 America's Judeo-Christian heritage. Lewis also gave $12.5 million to MoveOn.org <http://moveon.org/>; and America Coming Together, two key propaganda arms of the socialist left. 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 progressive movement that threatens to destroy the American free enterprise system that is targeting television shows on Fox News. Peter Lewis is making a fortune off of conservative Americans (who buy his auto insurance) that he then applies 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.. Chairman Lewis' gift helps the ACLU promote their anti-Christmas agenda such as: o Removing nativity scenes from public property o Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools o Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas in school projects o Renaming Christmas break Winter break o Refusing to allow a city sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade o Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school o Renaming a Christmas tree displayed on public property a Holiday tree In addition to their war on Christmas, the ACLU uses gifts like that from Chairman Lewis to: o Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage o Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers o Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders o Help legalize child pornography o Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon o Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association whose motto is "sex by eight or it is too late" o Censor student led prayer at graduation o Remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance o Remove "In God We Trust" on our currency Verify at: http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/peterlewis.asp<http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/peterlewis.asp>; or: http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/a/aclu-lewis.htm<http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/a/aclu-lewis.htm>; All of a sudden I don't care for their "funny commercials".
