Protest Bank of America’s HSUS Credit Card

Chuck Zimmerman

Here’s something to fire you up on a summer Thursday. As reported on CattleNetwork this morning, Bank of America is now offering “The Humane Society of the United States® WorldPoints® Platinum Plus® Visa® Card.” Thank BOA. Help provide funds (25 cents of every 100 dollars charged) to an organization that essentially misleads people to get their money to fund their goal of a vegetarian society in which human beings have no more “right” than any animal. Perhaps they don’t understand that this group has nothing to do with local animal shelters. In fact, this group hurts your local animal shelter by taking funds from people who think they’re supporting them.

This is worth a protest since this is such a well funded group that has publicly pledged to fight for legislation that will hurt America’s farmers and ranchers. They intend to do this in every state in the country and are hard at work as we’ve seen in Ohio this week.

The CattleNetwork story has a draft letter you can use with the address of where to mail it (Bank of America Corporate Center, 100 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, North Carolina 28255) or you can do what I did which was search their website and found that Nicole Nastacie is BOA, Corporate Philanthropy. I sent her an email.

You can also tweet the official Bank of America Twitter rep. Or perhaps post a comment on their blog.

Post Update: The CattleNetwork received a response letter from Bank of America which shows that the matter is being looked into at a pretty high level. Let’s hope they decide to terminate this program.

    Our farm has banked with BofA for a long time and I was disappointed to see the card supporting HSUS. I contacted our rep (he had been out this week to visit our operation) and he responded. He is a senior v.p. with BofA and here is his response:

    “Believe me—We know all about the HSUS and how they haven’t saved a single pet. They disgust us enough that we used our Ag ties with UC Davis and funded the study to defeat Prop 2 last year. Unfortunately the Bay Area and So Cal voters had their way with Ag as usual and the study was not enough to bring voters to see the light of day.

    With respect to the credit card program—This was not a historical BofA card. We inherited that card program when we acquired MBNA. It was a long term program they have with the HSUS and even though we brought to light the fact that these guys are boarder line crooks we most likely would have lost a legal battle trying to break it. So sorry to say we must live it with for the time being. We know the roots of BofA are in Ag and these guys are the arch enemy of ag. Yes, were in a awkward situation and Yes no one likes it.

    Sometimes the world is just too small a place. ”

    Gives me some hope for the company.

    First of all, this card is not new. It’s a long standing partnership.

    Second, yea, that reply sounds real “professional”.

    Following is my note to BOA yesterday – I am a current customer of BOA and Merrill Lynch. I would like to continue to be a customer in the future. However, the BOA/HSUS credit card is a direct insult to my occupation as a farmer/rancher. HSUS has stated several hundred times that they are going to destroy my industry using any tactics possible, I guess BOA is now one of their tactics? Please review this decision and reverse it as I know thousands of farmers and ranchers will be withdrawing BOA funds and canceling BOA credit cards as a result of this action.
    Thank you,

    I don’t think the problem is with the bank but with the idiots that would sign up for the card thinking they are helping save some pets. It wouldn’t matter if it was Wells Fargo or US Bank. If people are dumb enough to support the HSUS than they get what they deserve.

    Its on all of us to educate and inform the public about the truth of what the HSUS is actually about and hope that the truth prevails.
