Hypocrite! Guess Who Bought a Ton of Stock in Coal?

The actions of Democrats almost never match up with their rhetoric. Ironically, their “do as I say, not as I do” attitude is the most consistent thing about the Democratic platform.

For an example of classic liberal hypocrisy, look no further than green energy advocate and investor George Soros.

Fox News reports: 

Billionaire investor George Soros, who has demonized fossil fuels for years through his think tanks and political contributions, seems to have warmed up to Big Coal now that stocks are dirt cheap.

The left-wing hedge fund legend has raised eyebrows with major purchases of stock in two large coal companies, firms his critics say he helped bring to their knees. While buying low is the hallmark of any shrewd investor, buying coal goes against the political and environmental ideology Soros has long espoused.

… Soros, whose Climate Policy Initiative think tank recently urged the world to stop using fossil fuels in general and coal in particular, snapped up 1 million shares of Peabody Energy and half a million shares of Arch Coal, giving him significant stakes in what’s left of the U.S. coal industry.

Given these peculiar investments, it looks like George Soros has strategically advocated for regulations on fossil fuels to drive down the value of coal stocks, only to buy a bunch of coal stocks and wait for the stocks to recover in price.

If that’s true, this can only be described as diabolical.
