GEICO Insurance Cultural Marxist Hypocrisy – Gun Manufacturer Auto Policy Cancelled Because He Is In Firearm Business….

Because he makes gun parts for a living this policy holder received a letter from GEICO cancelling his auto insurance. The letter says his auto insurance is being cancelled because he owns a company that manufactures parts for firearms:

(fyi, to insure the authenticity I have submitted a copy along with a request for verification to GEICO via email – we’ll see their response)

GEICO-768x1024

“The reason for cancellation is your vehicle […] does not meet our underwriting guidelines because it is used in conjunction with a company that deals in the weapons industry

Get that?

OK, well, take a look at this:

Geico Military Alliance

Can you get more affiliated with a company that deals with “the weapons industry” than the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, or Dept of Defense (DoD) ?    

Humor in Nature

Then again, this is the ideological GEICO - Meanwhile…. back in Hollywood here is the latest Trailer for their movie “God Bless America“. The movie portrays gun violence as exciting and cool. It even includes, wait for it….. a movie theater spree shooting, which is supposed to be, well, funny.

Hollywood and the media glorify gun violence, so criminals will think it is exciting to use a gun to commit murder. Then when outrage ensues they demand that law abiding citizens be disarmed.

          • You may have a point there, Howie. I went to WalMart in Lewisville, Texas, last week, and just happened to see 5 boxes of Federal 9mm ammo on the shelf, so I bought them all.

            As I was leasving the store, the elderly lady/doorperson called to me, and said she needed to see my reciept for the ammo. No problem, I replied. I mentioned to her that I wasn’t real happy about WalMart HQ telling stores NOT to order any .223 or .308 ammo, and she told me “we’re just doing what we’re told to”. I asked who told her/WalMart not to sell ammo, and she replied “well, we do have a president, and he told us not to”.

            I promptly informed her that Obama is president, not the King, and he has no legal authority to tell anyone, especially a business, what to do. I also reminded her thet Barry the Terrible works for We, the People.

            She apparently took umbrage with my stance, and when into a tirade about how we have to obey the president. I told her that HE has to OBEY the CONSTITUTION, and I did not care to argue with her.

            Just a side note: I had heard a few weeks ago that WallyWorld was not going to carry “military” ammo, so I called WalMart HQ (800 WALMART) and asked them abiout the issue. I have still not recieved a response.

            This reminds me, as I told them, of the bullshit K-Mart pulled on 9/11, when the locked up all of the guns, ammo, BB guns, BBs, bows, arrows, etc. I was one of the folks that started the boycott which led to K-Mart going bankrupt. Maybe WallyWorld could use a dose of the same medicine.

    I’m an insurance agent, I do not represent GEICO, but have written and serviced many other carriers policies. Cancellation for cause (underwriting) is normal practice. However, I do feel like they may have pulled sections of their underwriting guidelines to benefit their personal beliefs. So even though the cancellation for underwriting is fine, the act of discriminating against him for his profession COULD be an issue. I would like to know when he purchased the policy, if his profession was noted on the application and if GEICO renewed coverage prior to this notice being issued…on a side note…wtf GEICO not wanting in bed with firearms…that is just unbelievable that they would bite the hand that feeds them! I recommend all GEICO clients go visit their local insurance agent for replacement coverage ASAP.

    http://www.ksdk.com/news/article/358395/3/Mo-proposal-makes-parents-tell-schools-about-gun-supply

    By Elizabeth Matthews

    ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – Ever since the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, gun control has been a hot topic. Now comes word of a Missouri lawmaker who wants any parent who owns guns to notify their child’s school.

    The lawmaker says she hopes the already filed bill will bring awareness to schools and to parents about keeping their guns locked up.

    It’s the next idea in a long list of proposed ideas for gun control, making it mandatory for parents to notify their child’s school about their gun supply.

    “I am not trying to take away the gun rights of any parents or any other citizens I believe in the second amendment,” says State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

    She says she wants the violence in schools to stop and this is just one different idea that no one has brought up.

    “It encourages parents to make sure they store their guns safely in their home, it also gives the school districts the opportunity to help encourage gun safety in the community and in the household,” says the Senator.

    “I agree with it, we need to know because a lot of parents aren’t governing their homes properly,” says parent Danaelle Stidum.

    Some parents say the bill doesn’t focus the attention on the parents that need to be focused on.

    “It concerns me a bit because I think the parents that would have no problem registering the guns aren’t the ones you have to worry about, I think it’s the ones who don’t or who are obtained by the students without their parents knowledge that’s the concern,” says parent Bill Koster.

    The principal of Brentwood High School says the information may help the police more than the school district and what about blaming a parent for guns in their house they don’t even know about?

    “Maybe a student obtaining a weapon without the parent even knowing about it,” says Principal Don Rugraff.

    “I understand what they are trying to do, but making us notify them if we have guns is not going to deter the behavior what makes people do what they do with guns,” says parent Kris Mills.

    This proposal is one of only a handful in Missouri’s house and senate. NewsChannel 5’s political analyst Dave Robertson told me he’s surprised that there aren’t more bills being proposed about gun control, but the chances of any bills about the issue being passed is slim to none because of the political atmosphere between the lawmakers and the governor.

    I remember when I was still in the Army I had GEICO. I bought a new 1987 Shelby Charger Turbo and they insured it. When I went to Europe with the car I had the GEICO overseas affiliate. When I returned from overseas and tried to insure it again they turned me down because it was turbocharged. I said it was turbocharged before and it was ok then so why not now and they just told me they don’t insure them because its turbocharged. I then asked about an Oldsmobile stationwagen I had and they said it was too old and had too many miles on it so I asked them just what the he** to you insure. Haven’t used them since.

    You guys are being manipulated a bit here as he seems to not be telling you the whole truth. GEICO does write commercial insurance, but there are risks that GEICO does not write. For example, they will not insure large chain pizza delivery drivers. Does this make them anti-pizza? No, it doesn’t. I assume you told them you deliver or transport things that they do not insure for, such as hazardous materials, maybe gun powder, etc… It has nothing to do with your false claim of them being anti- gun, it has to do with them not insuring the type of commercial business use on your vehicle. You are manipulating people. If you go to burger king and ask for a big mac, they will say go to mcdonalds. Simply put, find an insurance company that insures the type of business use on your vehicle instead of trying to make it seem like an antigun issue.

      Try again…….I know Snopes is two folks on a computer in their home of the liberal persuasion, however, they supposedly have a statement from GEICO on the matter, which certainly confirms the cancellation, and does not link it to any commercial use. Just that apparently, after the letter gained widespread dissemination, that they realized that they erred and perhaps misunderstood how they interpreted the vehicle being used….See: http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/geico.asp Funny, how they realize they “misunderstood” when scores of 2A supporting folks started jumping ship….money talks…Thanks for trying to cover for them though…GEICO is the same firm that supports Red Light Cameras through Buffets 500 million buy of American Traffic Solutions through Goldman Sachs Private Equity. He holds 2 of 7 seats. Follow the money……Why would an insurer have an interest in ensuring an increased number of citations………even if fraudulent and illegal…? Follow the money.

    “Thank you for contacting us and we appreciate your concern regarding this matter. There was some misunderstanding on our part in relation to the usage of the vehicle. We have reached out to the policyholder in an effort to clarify usage and continue his policy.”

    I plan to renew my Geico policy. I believe this was either a misunderstanding or a situation where Geico has corrected a problem.
