Democrats tell us that we must hate the rich. Yet they are the rich:
Most people who pay attention to politics assume that George Soros is the largest financier of leftist election candidates. While he may have the largest non-profit funding network, Soros is not the person who spent the most directly helping candidates through superPACs or other organizations in 2016. That person is Tom Steyer, a former hedge fund executive who made his fortune in the fossil fuel industry. The Washington Post reported Steyer spent $66.3 million helping Democrats in the 2016 cycle, and the Washington Times reports that the final spend was north of $85 million.
How much did legendary leftist George Soros spend in 2016? A meager $17.5 million.

Steyer has been involved in not only funding left-wing candidates, but also many of the protests you’ve seen over the last few years regarding the environment.
He uses his money to save the climate, which according to leftist dogma is imperiled by the fossil fuels that are the source of his wealth. There are levels of hypocrisy that only the liberal elite can attain.
