The left is once again, eating one of their own.
Pete Buttigieg is very popular among wealthy liberals in Hollywood and New York, but among the hard left of the Democratic base he is apparently not far left enough.
Some of them are even seeking refunds of their donations.

#RefundPete Trends as Early Backers Request Donations Back After Learning Buttigieg Not So Progressive After All
Though they initially viewed South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg as an intriguing and progressive newcomer when he began his presidential campaign early this year, the #RefundPete hashtag began trending Thursday morning on social media as a growing number of former donors started requesting their donations back in the wake of recent revelations about the 2020 Democratic candidate.
Kristen Hill, a volunteer community leader for the presidential primary campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in North Carolina, was one of the first voters to kick off the viral hashtag #RefundPete.
“If Pete Buttigieg fooled you into thinking he was a progressive at the beginning of his campaign and you donated what he thinks is pocket change, you can ask for a refund by emailing your receipt to [email protected],” Hill tweeted.
These people are serious:

I said months ago I didn’t like Mayor Pete. To me he felt disingenuous, snobby, inexperienced—and though he started running as a progressive it’s clear he is not. Grab your refunds and reallocate to someone who needs your pocket change #RefundPete

I gave @PeteButtigieg $10 back in March when he was the progressive-ish longshot who spoke nine languages. Now that he's the soulless centrist who would do anything to get elected, I would like a #RefundPete

Democrats are eventually going to implode.
This is proof.
