Following is the "gist" of an email that is going around right now. I have searched the web and cannot find anything that might be considered a denial of it. Everything that I've found points to the truth of the following statement. Don't believe me? Look around! See if you can disprove it...
Peter Lewis, former CEO and current Board Chair for Progressive Insurance is a staunch supporter of leftist communist causes. Here is the proof!
The "Harley Owners Group", the biggest motorcycle club in America, maybe even the world, hasn't found any members that have Progressive Insurance since the word got out about Progressives communist affiliations. Just being associated with George Soros should bring chills up your back.
Oh, you don't know who George Soros is? He's finances the Obama progressive affiliations. Progressive Insurance....Who are they? 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 Americas Judeo-Christian heritage.
Lewis also gave $12.5 million to 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:
Removing nativity scenes from public property
Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools
Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas in school projects
Renaming Christmas break Winter break
Refusing to allow a city sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade
Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school
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:
Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage
Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers
Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders
Help legalize child pornography
Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon
Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association whose motto is "sex by eight or it is too late"
Censor student led prayer at graduation
Remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance
Remove "In God We Trust" on our currency
This has been verifed at:
along with numerous other sources. It's all been confirmed.
Other sources point to the less-than-reputable corporate practices shown by Progressive. The company seems to have a habit of demanding that body shops use inferior Chinese-made parts for auto repairs, and have a history of draining shops to the point of bankruptcy. This, at the same time criticizing businesses that out-source.
Many shops will not repair cars covered by Progressive policies.
It's a widely known secret here in Cleveland that in the late 1980's, Peter Lewis and Al Lerner held large amounts of stock in Ameritrust Corp. . .Ameritrust did not welcome the "attention" (and was "greenmailed by Lerner/Lewis) and ended up buying back their stock from Lerner/Lewis for $112 million in 1988 and 1989.
(Greenmail: describes the purchase by a company of a large block of its own stock from a selected shareholder at an above-market price not available to other shareholders.)
It's always been believed (here in the Cleveland financial community) that this buy back, combined with the collapse of the real estate market in the late 1980's weakened Ameritrust and ultimately led to their being sold to Key Corp. Ameritrust (formerly known as Cleveland Trust) was a Cleveland institution. . .been around since 1894 so to see it undermined by greed (in the opinion of many here in Cleveland) on the part of Lerner and Lewis has left both men in a bad light in around town.

Snopes is garbage run by Libs; don't trust it. BUT, yes, Progressive Insurance is Leftist-owned, to be sure.
Go with Liberty Mutual. Best rates, best service, and a substantial discount for NRA members. That is one way to tell a non-Leftist company: they DON'T give discounts to gun owners. Liberty Mutual gives discounts to NRA members! And, they treat me like gold.
