It sounds like a joke, but Democrats now have their own “progressive” cell phone service provider. It uses its profits to fund liberal causes like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. It’s called Credo Mobile, and conservatives should be aware of their actions. There are likely many using the service, unaware of their donations to major liberal groups.
Credo Mobile was originally formed in 1985 by Peter Barnes, an environmentalist and entrepreneur. He serves on the boards of the Rainbow Workers Cooperative, Redefining Progress, and Greenpeace International. He originally founded Credo Mobile specifically to use liberals’ buying power to fund progressive causes. To date, they have given over $83 million to groups including the ACLU and Planned Parenthood. The company is Planned Parenthood’s largest corporate donor, having given them over $3 million as of 2015.
Credo uses Verizon’s network, however, Verizon does not specifically partner with them because of their political views.
Credo Mobile has partnered with MoveOn.org on several campaigns and has been active in every presidential election. In 2012, even created a SuperPAC to specifically oppose conservative politicians.
Bob Fertik of Democrats.com sent out an email yesterday to his supporters, urging them to join Credo. The Democratic Party has been one of Credo’s recipients.
Here are selections from the email.
Our wonderful progressive partner CREDO Mobile just announced a new Unlimited Plan so you can get all the data, talk and text you can use, and also help support critical groups like the ACLU, National LGBTQ Task Force and Planned Parenthood.
I hope you’ll consider switching to CREDO Mobile to make a real difference with every call you make.
Not only do you get all the data, talk and text you can use, you also help support critical groups like the ACLU, National LGBTQ Task Force and Planned Parenthood. Thanks to valuable CREDO Mobile members, CREDO has been able to donate more than $83 million to progressive organizations fighting for women’s rights, economic justice, voting rights, climate justice and more.
That means you can switch to CREDO Mobile and fund progressive causes without sacrificing price, quality or data.
