Washington DC and The Holy Land>Pete Buttplug
Prison Bitch 02:53 PM 04-04-2019
Official hate thread for Pete Buttigieg.




Question: on what issues does he actually differ from the standard Dem Party platform? If his entire schtick is “he’s from Indiana and can talk to Midwesterners!” that means nothing. Not if he’s merely babbling talking points

Did Pete Buttplug already crush Beto's dreams?

Buttplug is a diff kinda Democrat from what Zilla told me. Focused on economic issues, not divisive social wedge issues.

Indeed. It was uncalled for and poorly done. If Pete had hopes of somehow appealing to moderates in either party, taking on Pence like that was a bad look. Pence is an absolute honest and upfront guy. Moderates want people who are honest and solid. Pete went all in LGBT, not an attractive move. Him being gay does not have to hurt him but if that becomes the banner, no one is looking to elect the first gay. People are looking for great candidates and if gay thats ok

It effectively smears all traditional Christians of good will who oppose same sex marriage.

Couldn't be if one of his best buds was on that pedo list that Mike Flynn got ahold of which pissed off Pence. I think there's more to know about Pence. But you only defend Republican Evangelicals and think their religious cover, or that they're Republican, means they are all good.

Me too. I'm no fan of Pence, but it seems from what I've been hearing that he and PB had a good relationship. He should have made his point another way.

That's not how left wing ideology works. You are either 100% on their side, or you are a political enemy that needs to be crushed. There's a reason why the left will always cannibalize on themselves.

I call BS on that. A large part of Democrat party wasnt for gay marriage until the 2000s. Hillary Clinton didnt support until 2013.

I think it's more of an issue then you are admitting. Minorities tend to be more religious then whites now. It's mostly religious people that object to popularizing of a sinful lifestyle.

Ive already said it's a history of supporting gay rights. Not that those rights are off by much in today's world. Literally said it every single post. We're talking decades of blatant workplace discrimination, complete denial of benefits or entitlements, even making personal behavior illegal in many states.

And no, I highly doubt that a minority base that has overwhelmingly voted for dem candidates who are often anti religion and extremely pro choice all of a sudden makes this the one issue that makes them change decades of the same voting pattern. It is not even remotely close to a one issue vote the way abortion is for many conservatives.

Ive already commented multiple times that what he has to do to win his base risks alienating the platform that led to his rise in the first place. He is becoming more and more a social issue candidate. He wasn't last year when he was running for dnc.

Just for perspective on how stupid the dems are being on this... Andrew yang, a Chinese guy, was just recently accused of aligning himself with white nationalism because he's specifically called out that white men are struggling too in today's environment. So buttigieg caring about flyover regions is absolutely very very different from the way the rest of the field is looking at issues.

Interesting numbers for PB. A couple of these polls have him at 9. A couple have him at 11.

38 year old guy. With a 29 year old “husband”.
In the White House.
Representing the United States of America on the world stage.
Bringing a 29 year old guy as his date to dinners of state.

Just can’t see this one happening.

> Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor now running as a gay Democrat presidential candidate in 2020, previously praised Sen. Bernie Sanders’ bravery for using the controversial term “socialist” to describe himself in an award winning essay.

As a high school student in 2000, Buttigieg won the Profile in Courage Essay Contest for his essay praising Sanders for labeling himself a socialist.

In the essay, Buttigieg laments the politically correct standards of both political parties at the time, writing that “Candidates have discovered that is easier to be elected by not offending anyone rather than by impressing the voters,” describing politicians from both parties as “rushing for the center, careful not to stick their necks out on issues.”

Buttigieg contrasted politicians he considered centrist, like President George W. Bush, with Sanders.

“Sanders’ courage is evident in the first word he uses to describe himself: ‘Socialist’,” wrote Buttigieg, adding “Even though he has lived through a time in which an admitted socialist could not act in a film, let alone hold a Congressional seat, Sanders is not afraid to be candid about his political persuasion.”

He went on, gushing over Sanders throughout the 8 paragraph essay.

“His energy, candor, conviction, and ability to bring people together stand against the current of opportunism, moral compromise, and partisanship which runs rampant on the American political scene,” wrote Buttigieg.

In the concluding paragraph, Buttigieg credited Sanders with inspiring him to devote his life to politics.

“Above all, I commend Bernie Sanders for giving me an answer to those who say American young people see politics as a cesspool of corruption, beyond redemption,” he wrote.

Notably absent from Buttigieg’s glowing admiration of Sanders was any mention of “Democratic Socialism”, which seems to be a qualifier Sanders only created in the last several years as he prepared for his presidential runs.

It is unknown why Buttigieg himself would run for president, as his apparent political hero had already entered the fray by the time Buttigieg himself decided to run.

In all fairness there’s likely not one among us who wants to be held accountable for the dumb shit we thought was clever when we were in high school.
