Left-Wing Activists Want To Defund Mercer Hedge Fund

Left-Wing Activists Want To Defund Mercer Hedge Fund, by Peter Hasson.

Left-wing activists who have successfully pressured some corporations to stop advertising on Breitbart are now pressuring investors to pull their money from hedge fund Renaissance Technologies because its co-CEO is conservative billionaire Robert Mercer.

Sleeping Giants, an anonymous group of left-wing activists, is targeting the hedge fund because Mercer is the main financial backer of Steve Bannon and Breitbart News.

The group cites a ThinkProgress article that named several universities and public utilities as among the investors in Renaissance Technologies. The article was titled, “These wealthy institutions are quietly financing white nationalism.”

Black nationalism good, white nationalism bad, and everyone but the left is racist — there are the current PC fantasies of the political bullies.
