Ever since Occupy Wall Street (see OCCUPIED!! (Wall Street Hippies) and Crowder OCCUPIES WALLSTREET!!), you hear a lot of leftists whining about the big banks. Because “big” is terrible unless you’re a fat feminist. And “banking” is terrible unless the banking benefits leftist causes. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Goldman Sachs has basically told its employees…they can donate to Hillary but not to Trump.
Wall Street firm announced that all Goldman Sachs partners would no longer be allowed to make campaign contributions to “candidates running for state and local offices, as well as sitting state and local officials running for federal office.”
The memo explicitly mentions that donations to the Donald Trump presidential campaign would fall under the new restrictions, because Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, is a sitting governor. Goldman Sachs partners are advised not to contribute money to a “federal candidate who is a sitting state or local official, including their Political Action Committees (PACs).”
Here’s the rub…
Donations to the Hillary Clinton-Tim Kaine campaign, meanwhile, appear to be permissible under the new policy. Goldman Sachs has yet to clarify this apparent discrepancy. Tim Kaine is currently a sitting Senator from Virginia, but would not count as a “state or local official” under Goldman’s rules.
Ah yes. Now I see.
Look, we’re conservatives. If rich people want to donate to politicians, they should be allowed to. And Goldman Sachs’ love affair with Hillary Clinton has been well documented. We mean “love affair” in the metaphorical sense of alleged money
funneling donations, not loving Hillary Clinton in a literal sense. Much like the expression “Goldman Sachs is in bed with Hillary Clinton,” means the bank is in cahoots (ALLEGEDLY) with Madam Pantsuit, not literally in bed with Hillary. No one is literally in bed with Hillary. At least no one with any smidgen of self-respect. So perhaps Huma sneaks in from time to time. ALLEGEDLY!
But if big banks like Goldman Sachs here are in bed with Hillary and Huma, that means the meme of “Republicans are the party of “big banks” meme is not only wrong, it’s downright offensive. We might even need to offer trigger-warnings and safe spaces to those who keep hearing the false notion of “Republicans are the party of big banks.”
Just kidding. Conservatives aren’t as thin-skinned as the leftist whiners of social media. Maybe it’s because we spend too much time doing meaningful things. Like working at our jobs.
Also, and this is an important little factoid: “big banks,” become big as a result of “big government.” They do nothing but place their bets on who they think will win.
Goldman Sachs bet big on Obama too. Scared? You should be. But to really set the nightmares, try this video of the top five reasons Hillary is even worse than you thought. I know, a new bar set.
