The Vigilante From South Bend-Liar, character assassin, bigot, natural leader for the Democrats
Frontpagemagazine ^ | April 15, 2019 | David Horowitz

Liar, character assassin, bigot – Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for the Democrats.

Pete Buttigieg is the latest star to emerge from Democrats’ 2020 pack, which is no surprise since he exhibits all the tropes we have come to associate with this party in the era of its Trump derangement. On the evidence just of his attacks on Vice President Mike Pence, Buttigieg is a shameless liar, a calculating character assassin and an anti-religious/anti-free speech bigot, motivated by a virulent hatred of his political opponents, especially those who have been good to him like Pence.

Buttigieg’s chosen target is one of the most decent human beings in politics, who was supportive of Buttegieg both before he revealed he was gay and after. Indeed, when Buttigieg made his public announcement, Pence, then governor of Indiana went out of his way to praise his achievements as mayor – a bit of political hyperbole since Buttigieg’s city, South Bend, is a violence-ridden mess. https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/273361/mayor-buttigieg-runs-president-while-his-city-daniel-greenfield Yet, even after Buttigieg’s outrageous attacks, Pence has not had an unkind word to say about him.

Using a gracious and decent opponent as a prop in a hate campaign against Christians for political gain, tells you how low Democrats have sunk this electoral season. The basis of Buttigieg’s attacks is his invention of a non-existent Pence animus towards gays. As if this were not insulting enough, he follows the false insinuation with a lecture on theology to demonstrate that not only is Pence a religious bigot, but as a religious person he doesn’t even know what he’s talking about. Speaking to a CNN lap dog in a venue where Pence was not present to defend himself, Buttigieg said: "If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade," Buttigieg continued, "and that's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. That if you got a problem with who I am your problem is not with me -- your quarrel, sir, is with my Creator." In other words, God is on my side.

This is a peculiar theological view to say the least. It is an argument that born serial killer Ted Bundy could use in his own defense. In fact, Buttigieg thinks he has actually solved the most difficult and ancient theological question of all: If God is responsible for the whole of creation how can we explain or justify the suffering and death of the innocent, and of innocent children in particular. Buttigieg’s reasoning is not only shallow, its premise is malicious and dishonest. There is no evidence that Pence has a problem with the fact that Buttigieg is gay; indeed the evidence is quite to the contrary. It is the bigot Buttigieg who is the one who has a problem with the Christian, Mike Pence.

Like his Democrat comrades – Booker, Harris, Warren - Buttigieg dons the shield of martyrdom, portraying himself as a persecuted minority whose suffering absolves him of responsibility for his aggressions and bad behavior. In fact, in the short time since Buttigieg announced he was gay, far from being persecuted as the member of a “marginalized” group, his political fortunes have taken the form of a minor miracle – an obscure mayor from a violence-ridden city of under 100,000 catapulted into the national limelight as a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination. Far from hurting him, it is the fact that he is gay that has powered this rise, and he knows it. I can promise you that I am more persecuted every day by slanders and lies leading to lost opportunities for being a conservative than Pete Buttigieg will probably ever be for being gay. And unlike him I cannot capitalize on my marginalization by leftwing universities, publishing houses and media organizations for the crime of disagreeing with their political prejudices.

Buttigieg’s real quarrel is not with religious bigotry, but with religious liberty, which happens to be the foundation of all American freedoms. Freedom of religious conscience is the target of an ongoing campaign by the vigilante left and its LGBTQ leaders to force religious institutions to violate their consciences by incorporating views and practices that are contrary to their religious beliefs. This intolerance was on display in the crusade to destroy the Christian baker in Colorado, not because he wouldn’t serve gays – he did – but because he wouldn’t put an endorsement of gay marriage on one of his cakes because it violated his religious beliefs. When the Supreme Court upheld his constitutional right, the vigilantes went back to his shop and demanded a cake dedicated to Satan. The baker won this battle too, which showed exactly how malicious his LGBTQ antagonists were, but at a crushing cost in legal fees and serious threats of physical violence.

In San Antonio recently, six Democratic city council members barred Chick-fil-A from opening an airport restaurant – not because the chicken was bad but because the company contributed to a 501c3 non-profit that expressed views the liberal censors didn’t like. In Buffalo New York, the same unconstitutional ban was instituted against the same company for the same unconstitutional reason. At Yale - a university now in name only - the school administrators announced that law school students who support the views of the Alliance Defending Freedom, a legal non-profit in the fight to defend religious liberty, would no longer be eligible for financial support. If you think Climate Change is the most serious threat to our democracy, think again.

The left’s war against the First Amendment is national in scope, and fully supported by the Democratic Party, whose goal is apparently a one-party state. Christians are on the frontline of this battle because the left’s bigotry singles them out as a special target. Christians created all the freedoms we hold dear as Americans beginning with inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and they are on the front line defending them.

The Democratic Party has declared war on the 1st and 2nd Amendments, and also the 4th Amendment which created the Electoral College as a bulwark to defend the rights of the minority against the tyranny of the majority. Democrats have already declared their objection to the United States Senate because its existence reflects the concerns of America’s religious founders and not the socialist whims of Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. For the same reason and to advance their goal of a one-party state, they don’t want borders and they want non-citizens and felons and children to vote. Finally, they want to prevent any I.D. requirement at the ballot box which would ensure the integrity of the system and prevent their allies from voting over and over until they win.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a natural leader for this sinister movement, which begins with the character assassination of political opponents, at which he has already shown himself adept. Portray those who disagree with you as anti-gay bigots and white supremacists and women haters, and shut down the democratic dialogue itself. That is what a one-party state is all about, and we are rapidly approaching it.

Every Dem candidate must have a color. I wonder what color he's a person of. I think Beto has dibs on hispanic, Bernie has communist. Puerto Rican, Muslim and palestinian are all taken. Native American too, though maybe there's room for a male native. Wonder what happens when someone discovers all these things aren't colors.

Didn’t know he was gay. I need to pay more attention. That’ll cover his color problem, he’s a persecuted minority. He can aspire to be the first gay white looking President. That, along with his accomplishments maintain South Bend as a second rate city. Make America South Bend, no ring to it.

Don’t forget ‘self loathing’....
‘It’s hard to face the truth that there were times in my life when, if you had shown me exactly what it was inside me that made me gay, I would have cut it out with a knife. If you had offered me a pill to make me straight, I would’ve swallowed it before you had time to give me a sip of water...”

So why should we allow promotion of such behavior?

Now he claims he’s a better person since ‘embracing’ his homosexuality???

Butt-gag spoke of his “husband” thus acknowledging and establishing his “oppressed status” as a “non-transgendered bride”.

He has zero chance of being elected POTUS.

If the Democrats want to in their hopes on the gay mayor of a city 1/3 the size of Toledo, Ohio, I say let them.

Should a sodomite gain electoral office, the people will suffer. Already the people of Indiana are deeply damaged by a sodomite personality cult, where the law is enforced according to whatever whim might grab this sodomite each morning.

We cannot have such people in office if we are to remain a Constitutional republic, a nation or laws, rather than a nation of feelings based policy which varies unenforceably from one day to the next.That’s how these sodomite leftists work when they are in office, refusing to enforce laws they do not like, unable to get Congress to change them, they do not preserve and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, vioulating their very oaths of office.

And leaders like Kim,Putin, and Xi? They would bend this sodomite over the nearest table in very short order should he become President of the United States. This sodomite would have us at war in very short order.

Anyone who would vote for this sodomite has really drunk a huge amount of leftist Koolaid, and has voted to destroy our Constitutional Republic as we know it.

NO!

Don't be so sure, look at Jared Polis in Colorado, these boys is organized and could organize a 'first ever, something new, hope and change' etc. candidate a la Obama. Our future may be an outspoken homosexual activist in the White House and we may be wishing Obama was back! It's times like this that make me glad I'm not young anymore.

Him being gay is the least of my fear of this guy. When you read about his dad you realize what a wolf in sheep’s clothing he is. It appears that all of these Rats come from a long line of commies. And when you inform people of the fact that these candidates are literally communiststhey either say “so what?” Or they say your paranoid. It’s incredible and concerning. This “soft” communist revolution is insidious.

He just wanted to be the first something or other..mostly other..running for President.
Followed by the book he will be writing shortly after he goes down in flames.
And of course homos don’t seem capable of containing their lifestyles.
They have to shove it in everyone’s face.
Including your children and your grandchildren.
Probably something to do with poor impulse control or the queer brain?
The same impulse control that would have its finger “on the button” if he were to actually become president.
Which he will not.

And the 'McCarthyism' smear, conveniently forgetting that the Venona papers proved that Senator Joe McCarthy was correct about communist (ahem ... Russian) infiltration at the highest levels of government.

The little poofter keeps brandishing his ‘military service’ in the obvious hope that many kool aid lefty voters with no military connection or experience whatsoever will assume he was a warrior rather than some paper pushing REMF. It is most unlikely that he spent 7 months in Afghanistan on LERP missions. Very unlikely.
