Mr. & Mr. Pete Buttigieg.

Peter (Paul Montgomery) Buttigieg (pron. Peter Boota-judge[1]) was born January 19, 1982, and is the mayor of South Bend, Indiana,[2] and according to ABC's The View, is called the "Mayor of Indiana." Buttigieg is mayor of the city which hosts Notre Dame University, America's premier Catholic college. Buttigieg's father, a communist, infiltrated Notre Dame's faculty in 1980.[3] In a harbinger of things to come, Buttigieg announced his candidacy for the Democratic party nomination in the 2020 Presidential election on April 14, 2019.[4] The following day, April 15, 2019, Notre Dame's 800-year-old namesake and symbol of Christian civilization, the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris was burnt down. Buttigieg believes that the U.S. was "never as great as advertised."[5]

Homosexual activism and anti-Christian and anti-conservative stances

Buttigieg is running on a platform of uprooting traditional family values. His priorities are transgender bathrooms and the totalitarian Green New Deal.

Buttigieg has attacked Bible-believing Christians for their beliefs,[6] including Mike Pence, attacking them for supporting President Trump, and Pence for allowing himself to become "the midwife of the porn-star presidency," and describing him as being "a nice guy to your face," but "just fanatical."[7] This comes despite the fact he strongly supports abortion and same-sex "marriage".[8]

The leftist Buttigieg is being promoted as a devout Christian and a "man of faith" despite him being a homosexual, and "married" to a man, while homosexuality is never sanctioned in Scripture, and the Lord Jesus Himself specified that it was male and female that God joined together in marriage, whereas homosexual relations are only condemned in the Bible wherever it manifestly deals with them (see: Homosexuality and the Bible and Homosexuality and biblical interpretation). In addition, Buttigieg even attributed this sinful desire of his fallen fleshly nature to God, stating that he wished that, "the Mike Pences of the world" would understand that if they have a problem with who he is then their quarrel is with God.[9][10][11]

Consistent with the liberal social gospel, which gives a low priority to the teachings of Christ (while marginalizing the teachings of Paul etc. which were inspired by the Spirit of Christ) on personal moral purity in preference to acts such as feeding the (genuinely) needy, Buttigieg criticized right-wing Christians for "saying so much about what Christ said so little about, and so little about what he said so much about." Which, like Barack Obama, indicates ignorance of the totality of what Christ taught and how He did so, and the context of His social actions and the principals of sound interpretation,[12] as well as the evidence that the evangelical church has been very substantially engaged in providing humanitarian aid,[13] and encourages sacrificial giving to help others, which evangelicals engage in more of than other major groups.[14]

While Democrats typically only give perfunctory mention of God, Buttigieg openly invokes his liberal faith and advocates doing so, stating, "we need to not be afraid to invoke arguments that are convincing on why Christian faith is going to point you in a progressive direction." “When I think about where most of Scripture points me, it is toward defending the poor, and the immigrant, and the stranger, and the prisoner, and the outcast...So I think it's really important to carry a message (to the public)...[15]

However, due to Christian persecution, which Buttigieg implicitly sanctioned by opposing The Religious Freedom Restoration Act under the premise that is "appeared to me to be a license to harm others in the name of religion...making it easier to harm people in its name,"[16] this effectively means that Christians who hold to Biblical morality can be impoverished and treated as outcasts or otherwise experience harm (a word Buttigieg often uses for justification of his stance against conservatives), such as when refusing to be complicit in celebrating immoral causes, as in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop. [17]

Illustrating a primary reason why "right-wing Christians" seem so vocal about moral issues (since immorality is foisted upon society and Biblical morality is attacked), Buttigieg's attack on conservative evangelicals has provoked many responses from them. Based upon the logic that the importance of an issue is based upon how much Christ said about it, and the premise that explicit statements only seem to count, evangelical blogger Erick Erickson surmises that perhaps Mayor Pete Buttigieg thinks that Jesus would be okay with abortion and bestiality.[18]

Erickson also pointed out that that while Buttigieg holds himself out as a more tolerant Christian than Vice President Mike Pence, yet the later has never once said anything negative about Buttigieg being gay, while Buttigieg called Pence a fanatic and ridiculed Pence's faith. Erickson thus sees this as suggesting that he "would be O.K. with using the government to persecute Christians," for already "Buttigieg has come out in favor of the government shutting down Christian businesses if they do not bow at the altar of gay marriage."[19]

Cities across America which have adopted open bathroom policies, an issue dear to his heart, have been plagued with dirty hypodermic needles.[20] Buttigieg supports federal legislation banning discrimination against homosexuals, and therefore opposes the Trump administration’s ban on transgender people serving in the military, while supporting gender reassignment surgery for transgender people in prison.[21]

Buttigieg and his "husband" offer no hope to parents, young girls, and women as role models for heterosexuality. Buttigieg's homosexuality and support for the homosexual agenda propelled him into the upper ranks of Democrat candidates and the mainstream media has visibly displayed its adoration for him while he rose in the polls[22] (Liberals/leftists love Buttigieg's attacks on Vice President Mike Pence who supports religious liberty).[23] Major homosexual political donors are financially backing his campaign.[24]

Despite claiming to oppose using religion as a "cudgel," said in his very next sentence that if God were a member of a political party, it would not be the GOP.[25]

Views on race

President Trump remarked on the resemblance of Buttigieg to Alfred E. Neuman; Buttigieg, a man of the world who speaks seven languages, had no idea what President Trump was talking about.

Buttigieg has criticized his supporters for being too white.[26] During his first term as mayor, in the wake of a federal investigation into recordings by police that allegedly contained racist remarks by some white police officers, Buttigieg asked Darryl Boykins, the city’s first ever black police chief, to resign, and later demoted him to captain, resulting in charges of racial discrimination and a suit by Boykins, which was settled out of court. Buttigieg called for the eradication of racial bias in the police force, and has been credited with being being a valuable partner in advocating for the needs of the city’s black community,[27] while being faulted for a decrease in diversity in his administration as mayor[28] as well as in his presidential campaign events.[29]

Buttigieg rejected calls for the resignation of the racist Democrat governor of Virginia Ralph Northam.[30]

Ideology

See also: Long march through the institutions

Buttigieg calls himself an "intellectual" and claims Democrats respect "institutions and rules" and "fairplay." Buttigieg is noted for his use of meaningless Marxist dialectic double talk and buzz phrases, such as "democratic capitalism" which supposedly sets him apart from democratic socialists. Like Obama, Buttigieg poses as a "centrist." He wants to abolish the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court.[31]

Gramsci

Antonio Gramsci was a lieutenant of Joseph Stalin who headed the Italian branch of the International Communist movement (Comintern). After several failed assassination attempts on Mussolini, Gramsci was imprisoned in 1926 until his death in 1937. While in prison Gramsci wrote his Prison Notebooks, speculating on the failure of violent revolution to materialize in Western Europe as Karl Marx had predicted. Gramsci's works are considered by Socialists to be foundational to modern public education and Cultural Marxism.[32][33][34]

Joseph A. Buttigieg, Pete Buttigieg's father, according to his faculty page at Notre Dame University,
"interests are modern literature, critical theory, and the relationship between culture and politics. In addition to numerous articles, Buttigieg...is also the editor and translator of the multi-volume complete critical edition of Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks...his articles on Gramsci have been translated into Italian, German, Spanish, Portugese, and Japanese. He was a founding member of the International Gramsci Society of which he is the executive secretary."[35]

Gramsci's theory of "cultural hegemony" states that the ruling capitalist "oppressor" class uses cultural institutions, such as "traditional marriage," to maintain power. The "oppressors" develop a "hegemonic culture" using ideology unlike Socialists who use violence, economic force, and coercion. "Hegemonic culture" propagates its own values and norms so that they become "common sense" values and thus maintain the status quo. According to Wikipedia, this "Hegemonic power is therefore used to maintain consent to the capitalist order, rather than coercive power using force" as Marxism does "to maintain order. This cultural hegemony is produced and reproduced" by the dominant Christian oppressor class "through the institutions that form the superstructure."

Hate hoax

Buttigieg has been accused of perpetrating a hate hoax on Christians and U.S. Vice President Mike Pence.[36] Richard Grenell, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, who is openly gay, said
I find it really ironic that Mayor Pete stayed silent about this so-called hate hoax on him and others during 2015, 2016, 2017 when Mike Pence was governor of Indiana. There was total silence. It’s ironic that right about now when he’s starting his fund-raising apparatus to run for president that he comes up with this idea and this attack.[37]

Career

Buttigieg has overseen rising crime, homeless, and drug use during his time as mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Violent crimes are three times higher in the Democratic stronghold of South Bend than in the rest of Indiana, and property crimes five times higher.[38] His 80% election vote is not a reflection of popularity, but rather of single party control of a political machine.

In 2017 Buttigieg ran against Keith Ellison and Tom Perez for the Chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee but was defeated because he's white.

Family

Buttigieg was gay-married in 2018 and the couple have no children.[39]

  30. Buttigieg said, "I don’t mean to congratulate ourselves because we’ve got our issues to work through too, but I would point to the contrast between how the Democratic Party handled allegations of sexual mistreatment among people in our ranks … and what's going on on the other side of the aisle. Or when it comes to these disturbing racial relations. The difference between the conversation the Democratic Party is having about the governor of Virginia and the conversation, if any, that the Republican Party is having about people like Steve King. How much will we tolerate?" A blatantly false statement. King was removed from all House committee assignments after King was quoted out of context by mainstream news sources, whereas Rep. Ilhan Omar was never censored or disciplined for a recurring pattern of anti-Semitic statements. Buttigieg went on to say Northam could remain in office until he could primaried out in 2021.
