‘You Are Evil, Thieving Bastards’

No, not you, readers (well, presumably not most of you). The “evil, thieving bastards” in this case are Bank of America executives who have precipitated a one-woman revolution launched from YouTube. Huffington Post’s Arthur Delaney reports:

For years, Ann Minch of Red Bluff, Calif., has carried a balance of several thousand dollars on her Bank of America credit card, making minimum monthly payments of about $130, sometimes paying an extra $50 or $100. She says she’s never missed a payment.

Bank of America rewarded her loyalty this year by repeatedly raising her interest rate, which reached 30 percent in July.

Fed up, the 46-year-old stepmother of two turned to YouTube.

“There comes a time when a person must be willing to sacrifice in order to take a stand for what’s right,” said Minch in a Sept. 8 webcam video. “Now, this is one of those times, and if I’m successful this will be the proverbial first shot fired in an American debtors’ revolution against the usury and plunder perpetrated by the banking elite, the Federal Reserve and the federal government.”

Here’s the video, which has been viewed nearly 100,000 times since being posted less than a week ago:
