And don't forget about those Luxleaks whistleblowers that could be facing prison, because they're not real whistleblowers and should be prosecuted because they leaked "business secrets" and went against "professional confidentiality". But nothing is wrong with the practices described in the leak. No sir.

Also, remember we've always been at war againt Eurasia.

Emma Watson is an SJW now? I remember hearing her give some kind of speech on gender at the UN, and she sounded pretty reasonable.

Though SJW is about as meaningful as "cuck" or "Islamophobe" now.

I was referring to her tweets, but after glancing through them, they were either deleted or edited out. Then again, they were from around 2014.

I'll retract my statement, though, since I can't really give any definite proof of her harassing anyone with her beliefs.

Well, one is a real thing, the other isn't.

My point is more that "Islamophobe" can easily be applied to anyone who is at all critical of the religion. While it is valid in some cases, it isn't in others.

Sure, if someone's actually getting cuckolded.

You can try to handwave it, but it actually exists, whether people also exist that water it down/misuse it or not.

Wasn't it said earlier in the thread that not everyone who used the bank was involved in the illegal practices?

Most of them were not, evading taxes is technically not illegal per se, that's why these practices exist. It's just morally questionable and also a convenient way to wash illegal funds as well, it's shady. It also pretty much puts the dot on the i of corporate hypocrisy when it comes to domestic economic policy.
