Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), which crashed last week setting off a worldwide banking crisis, had donated more than $73 million to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. The bank joins popular corporations such as Ford, WalMart, and Amazon.
Not only did SVB support Democrat-leaning organizations, as Signature Bank president and Jewish donor Scott Shay, just six months before the bank was shut down, held a company seminar, “Know Your Pronouns,” in which employers were taught to say “gender-neutral pronouns” like “Ze” and “Hir”.
Signature Bank was taken into receivership Sunday by New York regulators and the Fed, marking the third largest bank collapse in American financial history.
The Know Your Pronouns symposium was part of Signature Bank’s Social Impact Series, and also featured Finn Brigham, the company’s Manhattan-based consul for gender issues, who was described as “genderqueer trans masculine person” at the event.
Referencing former Representative Barney Frank (D-MA), Shay boasted how Signature Bank was the “the first bank in the United States to have an openly gay man on our board.”
Underlining its commitment to inclusion, Signature Bank touts “sustainability, diversity, equity, inclusion, community engagement, employee development, employee health and safety, and any other environmental, social, or governance-related initiatives.”
The bank’s dedication to the regime’s narrative was further reinforced when it closed Donald Trump’s accounts after the J6 incident at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Signature Bank was closed Sunday by U.S. regulators, according to a joint statement by the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC), which noted the lender was “closed pursuant to the authorities of its state charter.”
This comes after the failure of the SVB Bank as well as the crypto-focused Silvergate, which was founded in California and had prominent Democrats on its board.
