Most of his life, Steven Spielberg has supported the left-wing side of politics. He supports the US Democratic Party for which he has donated over $800,000. He is close friends with former president Bill Clinton (a liberal politician).
Another element of left-wing politics Steven and his wife support is same-sex marriage. He resigned as a member of the national advisory board of the American Boy Scouts in 2001, because he did not agree with the organisation's stance against homosexuality. On September 2008, Steven and Mrs Spielberg donated $100,000 to the 'No on Proposition 8' campaign fund for their support of same-sex marriage.
Some of Steven Spielberg's films cover liberal elements. These include;
- The Color Purple - the protagonist has a lesbian relationship and soon stands up to her father who abused her when she was a child.
- Schindler's List - based on a true story. The protagonist, Oskar Schindler, despite being a loyal Nazi helps as many Jewish prisoners as possible by employing them in his factory.
- The Flintstones movie (which he produced but did not direct) - based on the 1960s animated situation comedy, a working class quarry worker, Fred Flintstone, is promoted as vice-president. After ordered lay offs to his fellow quarry workers, including his best friend, Barney Rubble, he discovers the cons of being a fat-cat.
