RALEIGH – Tom Steyer, a hedge fund billionaire and climate change alarmist, is one of the crowd of Democrats racing to the Left for the presidential nomination and he’ll be making a campaign pit stop in Raleigh this Saturday for a Meet & Greet.
Before running for president, Steyer pledged to spend $100 million to help defeat President Trump. He’s followed a Soros-like tack of funding political activism that helps his crony investment while pushing a deluded Leftist world view that’s become the model for today’s leading Democrats. All the buzzwords are right their in his bio in the announcement.
“Tom Steyer left his successful investing business seven years ago to give his own money and all his time and energy to fighting for progressive causes. He soon became one of the country’s leading forces in registering more young voters and voters of color, fighting climate change, working for racial justice, and helping secure better lives for all Americans. Tom has led a number of people-first, grassroots campaigns that have repeatedly defeated powerful special interests, beating big oil to win clean air laws, forcing big tobacco to pay its share of healthcare costs, and closing a billion-dollar corporate tax loophole to fund public schools. Tom and his wife Kat Taylor were early signers of the Giving Pledge, a commitment to give the bulk of his fortune to good causes before they die. Tom’s dedication to doing what is right comes from his parents. His father was a lawyer who prosecuted Nazis at the Nuremberg Trials; his mother was a journalist and teacher who volunteered to teach prisoners in New York City jails. Tom says his parents showed him the power of having the courage to do the right thing. Their greatest lesson, he says, was that our actions speak louder than our words – what we do is more important than what we say.”
No 2020 Democratic presidential candidate is complete without a reference to fighting Nazis. Does Steyer think he’s essentially fighting Nazis by challenging Trump? Probably, yet that wouldn’t be surprising consider the devolution in political rhetoric since Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) infected a portion of the population.
Steyer’s platform is similarly compatible with the Democrats’ dogma of the day, but emphasizes the ‘climate crisis’ and promising solutions to address it. You can feel confident that those ‘solutions’ feature higher costs, higher taxes, more regulations, and less freedom. After all that, the ‘solutions’ won’t actually make a dent.
So, if you want to witness hubris in action, you can meet Tom Steyer on January 11, from 5:30-7:30, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Raleigh.
