    Mic Check!
    Mic Check!
    John Stumpf
    We won’t take your home
    but we will take a minute of your time.
    Your leadership has led to
    the death of the American Dream.

    Wells Fargo is guilty
    of widespread predatory lending
    And holds over 5.7 billion in student debt.

    Wells Fargo targets people of color
    And the poor for high interest student loans,
    urging loan officers to misreport income and forge documents.

    Wells Fargo foreclosed
    On hundreds of thousands of homes last year,
    Many of them illegally.

    Wells Fargo has been fined
    85 Million dollars for its crimes,
    You have issued no admission
    Of guilt or apology.

    Wells Fargo took 25 billion
    In taxpayer dollars,
    The larges bailout in bank history,
    Yet reaped 4.1 billion last year
    While paying no federal income tax.

    You yourself made 19 million last year
    Making you the highest paid bank CEO in America.

    Furthermore
    you invested nearly 100 million dollars
    In racist for-profit prisons
    While lobbying for harsher anti-immigrant legislation.

    You are what is wrong with the culture of Wall Street.

    A culture that values corporations
    More than rights of “people” with hearts and minds.
    A culture that buys politicians
    And corrupts our democracy.

    A culture that exploits the dreams
    Of working class and middle class Americans.
    For the benefit of the 1 percent.

    John Stumpf
    Have you no shame?

    hey guys! I miss all your posts and discussions. I’m afraid that my time is
    very limited these days, as I’m studying for the bar exam.

    But this, I just had to share!

    wow – these kids know what’s happening.

    disrupt the 1%.

    @TheAsianRepublican I agree with the screaming matches being bad, but at
    the end of the day, the CEO’s fans do that, too. They’re just clapping,
    instead.

  13. spoinklesprouts says:

    oh damn. i thought they *were* clapping for the mic checkers. now i’m sad.

  14. Matthew Tucker says:

    How dare those banks make money off of loaning you hundreds of thousands of
    dollars so you can get your college education! That is blasphemy! They
    should give you that money fo freeee!

  15. J Martin says:

    Logical flaw detector is naive and resorts to ad hominem; a weak and off
    point argumentation tactic. People like this are high on anger and
    ignorance but low on real understanding of facts and issues. The elites use
    them as fodder and aim and shoot them at those who show the courage to
    speak up against injustices. Then these same cannon fodder dupes, freeride
    on the better social conditions that arise from the shows of dissent which
    in the end, will help to restore law and order to a corrupt po

    Y’all rock!

  18. MartinGist says:

    And the majority of the audience sits there giggling, aghast at these
    hooligans who have the temerity to speak truth to power. Shame on the sheep
    who choose to pretend that they believe the lies of these 1% ceos. Why
    don’t you tools actually investigate what your crony capitalist heroes are
    doing to the 99%? Your smirking acquiescence to your own bondage makes the
    rest of us judge you with contempt.

    Keep at it. These guys want to be so rich they don’t want to deal with us
    anymore. Ain’t gonna happen! Keep the pressure up! As for the people
    clapping, join us, these guys will continue to walk all over you in every
    way possible. We have to stand up! Keep at it! Everyone is doing great work.

    You idiots WILL NOT be applauding when this economy collapses.

    Take your money away from these crooks!

    If you keep watching he does talk about wealth distribution – which is a
    shocker. Otherwise he’s an asshole like all the rest.

    @LogicalFlawDetector er, LogicalFlawDectard, methinks you are full of shit.
    Your point doesn’t even make sense.
