  • Pete Buttigieg campaign has just made his problems with black support much worse

    American Thinker ^ | 11/18/2019 | Thomas Lifson
    The mainstream media has done its best to paper over Pete Buttigieg’s problems with attracting black support. They hate to admit that there could ever be conflict among members of “intersectional” grievance groups. Blacks, in particular, are to be shielded from any criticisms of collective behavior, which must always be supported, or at least “understood” in “context.” But African-Americans have more negative attitudes toward homosexual behavior than other major demographic segments of the population, based at least in part on attendance at churches that have played a major role in the civil rights revolutions of the past 60 years, and...

    The photo of a black woman smiling at a young black boy had been splashed for weeks across a web page detailing South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigiegs plan to combat racial inequality, which he billed as a comprehensive investment in the empowerment of black America. But when the woman in the photo learned her likeness was displayed on the Democratic presidential candidates campaign website, she was confused, the Intercepts Ryan Grim reported Sunday. The woman isnt African American and shes never heard of the Douglass Plan she is from Kenya, where the picture was originally taken. [W]hats the...

    Burning with the velocity of a prairie fire on a gusty Indiana day, Pete Buttigieg scorched the airwaves, seared the podcasts, and charred the press this week as he ignited his presidential campaign, temporarily torching his Democratic competition in the process. The secret to Buttigiegs publicity run was no secret, wrote Matthew Yglesias in Vox. Like Molly Bloom in his favorite novel, Ulysses, he cant stop saying yesto media invitations. In recent weeks, hes appeared on a CNN town hall, Ellen, A-list podcasts and Morning Joe, and been featured in New York, POLITICO Magazine, the Atlantic and much more. But...

    If youre ever looking for a way NOT to win a primary look no further than the crap Pete Buttigieg pulled trying to prove black people really do endorse both him and his plan. Seriously. Wow. Rachel R. Gonzalez @RachelRGonzalez Yesterday Pete Buttigieg put out a list of 400 Black South Carolinians that endorse him/his plan. -A lot of the people are confused because they didnt endorse. -42 percent of the list is white. -They used stock photos from Kenya. Yet we have heard nothing from his campaign.

    **SNIP** Although none of the Democratic candidates explicitly rebuked Mr Obama's comments, Mr Sanders mounted the strongest defence of his policy platform. Answering questions on a forum aired by Univision , a Spanish-language TV network, he was asked whether Mr Obama was "right" to say voters didn't want systemic change. Mr Sanders, who describes himself as a democratic socialist and progressive, laughed and said: "Well, it depends on what you mean by tear down the system." "The agenda that we have is an agenda supported by the vast majority of working people," he said. "When I talk about raising the...

    Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is failing to garner significant support for his longshot presidential bid nationally, a Reuters/Ipsos poll released this week shows. Bloomberg, who signaled his intention to jump into the crowded Democrat primary field this week by filing paperwork to appear on the ballot in Arkansas March 3 presidential primary, is failing to see any sort of significant support nationally, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll. The poll, which surveyed 2,235 adults between November 1214, 2019, showed only three percent of Democrats and independents supporting the former New York City mayor. Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) and Sen....

    Women who live in Americas suburbs are supporting President Donald Trumps re-election bid, says a new report at, that shows Trump is benefiting from a surge in large-dollar donations from women in suburbs more than any Democrat candidate. While mainstream media are reporting some polls that suggest Trump is losing the support of women, the report by Open Secrets, part of the Center for Responsive Politics, shows the president has over 10,500 large-dollar contributions from women in suburbs, and has received $8,293,135 from them the largest amount than any of the Democrat 2020 candidates. Suburban women, who...

One hundred years ago, on this day, America first celebrated Armistice Day, marking the anniversary of the day in 1918 when the guns of World War One fell silent. You know, there is a day in May when we remember those who served and did not come home. But today, all across America, in gatherings...

    Republicans cheered Tuesday's historic confirmation vote for Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote slamming Democrats as obstructionists and saying that President Donald Trump was entitled to his Cabinet picks. "President Trump has assembled a first-class team for his Cabinet, and obstructing all of these confirmation votes is only delaying the important work that needs to be done," Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said. "In my conversation with Betsy DeVos, I found her to have a deep appreciation for the value of public schools and a special concern for the needs of the...

    New York Times ^ | November 6, 2019 | Charles M. Blow
    Reducing Pete Buttigiegs struggle to attract black support solely to black homophobia is not only erroneous, it is a disgusting, racist trope, secretly nursed and insidiously whispered by white liberals with contempt for the very black people they court and need. I have never been blind to this the people who see black religiosity as an indicator of primitive thinking and lack of enlightenment. (For the record, I am bisexual and not a religious man.) They are those who see black people as a blight on our big cities, pathologically prone to violence and in need of pity and...

    Kamala Harris has dismissed claims that Black voters are less likely to support Pete Buttigieg as nonsense. The presidential candidate was responding to comments over the weekend from South Carolina Representative Jim Clyburn, who told CNN that there was no question that Buttigiegs sexuality was a problem for older Black voters. "I know of a lot of people my age that feel that way," Clyburn said. "I'm not going to sit here and tell you otherwise. I think everybody knows that's an issue." But Harris rejected that claim, speaking with CNN not long after. Im never going to buy into...

    Addressing a conference of African-American church congregations in this vote-rich city, Pete Buttigieg quoted scripture on Sunday morning and extolled his Douglass Plan to combat racial inequities in America, one of several attempts this weekend to confront his strikingly low support among black voters. But Mr. Buttigieg also undertook a delicate task before the African Methodist Episcopal worshipers. As a gay, married man addressing a denomination that does not allow same-sex marriage rites, he tried to seek common ground over being members of minority groups whose civil rights have come under attack. It was a nod to his sexuality, following...

    The idea of 2020 hopefuls Joe Biden or Pete Buttigieg facing off against President Trump next November would be a tragedy as the Democratic party continues to forge ahead without a true frontrunner, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said during a Thursday interview with The Intercepts Deconstructed podcast. Omar was asked about the field of 2020 candidates and whether she preferred Biden or Buttigieg. She answered, None, before characterizing their hypothetical nominations as tragic. Host Mehdi Hasan asked.But if you had to pick one? If one of them is the candidate for your party, who would you rather it be? Omar...

    Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) on Thursday rolled out a proposal for a millionaires surtax, amid a growing interest from Democrats in increasing taxes on the wealthy. This is a bill designed to address two major problems of public policy: the lack of revenue, and inequality, Beyer said on a call with reporters. Its a laser-focused solution that requires those who benefited the most from the economy to contribute in a way they simply havent been asked to before. The lawmakers bill, which is being co-sponsored by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), would create a 10-percentage...
