First it was Ed Stack of Dick’s, candidate for biggest hypocrite in America. Now we have Citigroup’s statement regarding restrictions on the sales practices of its “business partners” in the gun industry. My response. . .
I may take Citigroup’s born again experience more seriously when it targets more common agents of death like cancer by not recommending the purchase of stocks like British American Tobacco (H/T Miguel at GFZ).
I think this is the same Citigroup that in 2015 paid $400 million to settle a lawsuit for manipulating foreign exchange rates.
And has a corporate rap sheet a mile long.
If they are so awful, why doesn’t Citigroup begin by cleaning up its own house and fire any employees who own or possess high capacity magazines, or any employees under the age of 21 who own guns at all?
Of course many of my fellow liberals are rejoicing at Citigroup’s hypocritical moralizing, proving once again that we adhere as much as anyone to the ancient proverb that “my enemy’s enemy is my friend.”
