So a bunch of mega-powerful multinational corporations are pouring money on Obama’s new anti-Trump war machine.
It’s because they love democracy and human rights and so on, for sure.
Technology and energy corporations have joined the list of top donors to the Obama Foundation, which on Friday made public the names of more than 700 patrons from the last three months.
Exelon and Microsoft have given more than a million dollars to the foundation, which was founded in 2014 but boosted its fundraising efforts after President Barack Obama left the White House.
Reid Hoffman, a venture capitalist known for creating LinkedIn who has himself given more than a million dollars to the foundation, sits on the board of Microsoft. William Van Hoene Jr., a senior vice executive president at Exelon, which pledged $10 million over the next five years, helps lead the foundation’s efforts to promote diversity and inclusion.
“Exelon is proud to support the Obama Foundation and the establishment of the first presidential library ever located in Chicago, which will undoubtedly become a strong economic driver for the south side and the city we call home,” a spokeswoman said in a statement.
The list of new donors also includes at least one anonymous contributor who directed more than a million dollars through a donor-advised fund managed by The New York Community Trust and another who gave a half-million dollars through the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
Chicago’s billionaire Crown family gave between $250,001 and $500,000. Meanwhile, the family foundation of investor Andrew Hauptman, owner of the Chicago Fire, has brought its cumulative contribution closer to the million dollars it has pledged.
In addition to Hoffman and wife Michelle Yee, two other philanthropists who previously donated have now given more than $1 million: billionaire David Shaw and wife Beth, who advised Obama on financial capability; and through their family foundation, Debbie and Glenn Hutchins, who co-founded a private equity firm specializing in technology and technology-enabled companies such as Skype.
How is it even possible that leftists are able to pretend they are something other than an oppressive, authoritarian, Orwellian elite?
I mean, these antifa – I just can’t process what is going through their brains, as they go out on the street in masks and beat people in the name of multinational corporations while claiming to represent – represent what?
