Go woke, go broke!
… But don’t worry, as the bank employees and management will be well-versed in transgender pronouns as all customer deposits vanish into the night.
Months before the collapse of Signature Bank, which also went insolvent at the same time as the Silicon Valley Bank, upper-division management apparently thought it was more important to school employees on pronouns, rather than actual money management.
Just consider the asinine seminar that the alleged financial experts sat through, just months before the bank went abruptly belly-up, as reported by Daily Mail.
Hilariously, the seminar was not only run by the chairman, Scott Shay, but also (get ready to laugh), the “Corporate Consultant on Gender Issues,” Finn Brigham.
So, “gender issues” warrant corporate consultancy now. What a joke!
As an apparent gender consultant, Brigham identifies as a “genderqueer trans masculine person.”
Right. Great context for the word salad to follow.
“I don’t know if there’s anyone in the Signature Bank world, but probably you have clients that use ‘they/them’ as pronouns,’ They’re gender-neutral pronouns on purpose,” Brigham declared.
Thanks for the lesson on elementary school pronouns. “They/them.” Is he kidding?
Brigham then proceeds to
“‘Ze’ is another gender-neutral pronoun,” Brigham pompously continued, “the other part of that would be ‘hir’ — spelled H-I-R.”
Brigham also claims that “folks that are non-binary … intentionally don’t identify as male or female.”
Wow. Amazing. Wanna bet that Brigham makes at least six figures per year, spouting this drivel?
Half the time, one does wonder if others become “trans” for career benefits, just as Elizabeth Warren became Native American for her own “career.”
Over the course of the seminar, Shay and Brigham also brag about Signature Bank serving as the “first bank in the United States to have an openly gay man on the board.”
Until the bank collapsed, that is.
Quite a few individuals have expressed shock about the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank, but anyone with any economic sense would have also seen that this bank’s crisis, much like Signature Bank’s crisis, coming from years away.
As the bank elected to focus on woke politics rather than responsible governance and investment of individuals’ deposits, not to mention violate countless fiduciary duties, it is really not a surprise at all that the financial institution mismanaged funds.
Insanely, the bank was completely unhedged in a massive bet on bonds and (surprise!) unable to remain solvent after the bond bet went completely sour.
That’s woke money management for you. Literally all the most important eggs in one rapidly sinking basket.
Governor DeSantis was rather unsurprised by the demise of Silicon Valley Bank, noting that banks that remain extraordinarily focused on woke causes are far more likely to fail in achieving their core objectives.
“They’re so concerned with (diversity, equity and inclusion) and politics and all kinds of stuff. I think that really diverted from them focusing on their core mission,” DeSantis remarked briskly.
Yep. Like the core mission of not losing customers’ money on such an epic scale.
Especially when the monies are diverted into ultra-woke causes that usually fund dangerous, invasive riots.
DeSantis also noted that the federal government, rather amusingly, is enormous, yet apparently incapable of preventing major banking failures.
“We have a massive federal bureaucracy, and yet they never seem to be able to be there when we need them to be able to prevent something like this,” DeSantis added with amusement.
Several recent developments have proven more than ample support for the Florida governor’s beliefs.
Perhaps one of the more egregious includes the bank’s fixation on supporting violent organizations that all but endorse total anarchy and ignorance of the law.
SVB donated at least $73M to BLM and other likeminded causes, boasting that the tens of millions of dollars had allegedly opened “opportunities for dialogue, including hosting over 40 small group ‘Conversation Circles’ in which over two thirds of our employees participated in discussions about racial equity issues.”
Unsurprisingly, Signature Bank also provided the fraudulent “activist” organization with at least $850,000 while it was busy pushing employees into pronoun madness.
Looks like all the wokeness in the world wasn’t sufficient to save grossly mismanaged companies and militantly woke boards.
But hey, at least all those employees are well-versed in pronouns and BLM blights!
