(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Former Republican Senator Cory Gardner has partnered with several Republican operatives to launch a new credit card designed to appeal to conservative voters and fund right-wing causes, according to a report in the Washington Examiner.
The card — called Coign, pronounced ‘coin’ — offers conventional perks like “zero membership fees” and “o1% cash back on all purchases,” the Examiner reported, but it’s real selling point is that it contributes “a percentage of its profits from merchant fees to conservative causes and organizations.”
“Coign will let conservatives voice their priorities through charitable donations they get to pick,” Coign founder Rob Collins, a former lobbyist and executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said in statement.
“Too many corporations are investing their customers’ money in political and social priorities that align with their executives, the media, and the Left’s agenda,” Collins continued. “For the first time, the Coign card will allow conservatives to ‘Spend Right’ no matter where they shop.”
The appearance of a conservative credit card is a sign of the times, as conservatives have begun to realize that they should no longer give their money to big companies and big banks who hate their values and seek the ruin of their culture.
The Times points to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ recent decision to strip Disney of it’s self-governing power in the state of Florida as an example of this trend, and one might just as easily point to Republican politicians’ reaction to Elon Musk‘s purchase of Twitter.
Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., for example, took to Twitter to praise Musk’s acquisition.
“Today is an encouraging day for freedom of speech,” Blackburn wrote. “I am hopeful that Elon Musk will help rein in Big Tech’s history of censoring users that have a different viewpoint.”
Credit card companies in particular have become more “woke” in recent years, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
“JPMorganChase & Co. donated more than $2 billion to Black Lives Matter and criminal justice reform groups in response to the movement’s protests, while Bank of America pledged to spend $1 billion on a so-called racial equity program,” wrote Free Beacon reporter Patrick Hauf.
