Pete Buttigieg isnt going to win You may as well start on his political obituary once youve finished with Joe Bidens
Roger Kimball 8 February 2020 3:49 PM
As Joe Biden once said of his old (but then-future) boss B. Obama, the 38-year-old former Mayor of South Bend is bright, articulate, and cleans up well. But the idea an idea that is assiduously circulated by his supporters that he is moderate is ridiculous. In fact, those scrambling for the perfect political epitaph for PB might consider moderate in scare quotes.
Remember, Mayor Peter is the openly gay son of the editor and translator of Antonio Gramscis Prison Notebooks. Gramscis important contribution to the literature of totalitarian tyranny was his idea that Communist dictatorship could only come to free countries by means of a long march through the institutions, cultural as well as political. The left has pretty well accomplished this with respect to the universities and the elite cultural institutions of the media and the so-called arts community. Mayor Pete wants to finish the job through such expedients as packing the Supreme Court with six more seats, abolishing the electoral college (its undemocratic, he says), disarming the populace (a precaution tyrants always take), providing a glide path for the government takeover of healthcare, opening up the borders, and forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for college, even for illegal immigrants, whom he also wants to offer amnesty. Its a start, Comrade.
The truth is, Buttigieg is about as moderate as Bernie Sanders. He comes off as more reasonable than Bernie because he has a more soothing demeanor. (And he comes off as more reasonable than Elizabeth Warren because he does not sound like a screeching harridan whose hectoring voice is like a witchs nails drawn across a blackboard.) He quotes and misquotes scripture. He sounds reasonable, so long as you ponder the timber of his voice and dont ponder the substance of what he says.
But at the end of the day, this Ivy- and Oxbridge-educated progressive veteran is a Gramscian radical. He is there with with Ralph make-em-comfortable Northam on abortion, though he has gotten pretty deft at avoiding the issue. Abortion, in fact, seems to be the one issue on which he wants the government to stay out of our lives. About everything else, its all government all the time.
Mayor Pete will have a scintillating couple of months while the media pretends that he might possibly win the nomination. But he cant, and that will become obvious, I predict, shortly after Super Tuesday. I am really not sure who would have the best chance against Donald Trump in November. I am confident, though, that the sacrificial lamb will not be Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Mayor Pete is not running to win. He's running to mainstream homosexuality.
They are ALL radical leftists, the only one who is open about it is Bernie which is why they are trying to cheat him again.
The Kenyanesian Usurper was just as radical leftist, he just lied about it.
They’re all Bernie. - Mark Levin
Am I a Pollyanna or am I right in saying that in a nation that increasingly celebrates depravity even we are not ready for a Proud Homosexual with a First Gentlemen?
I cant see it. I just cant. Its a Bridge too far. Perhaps I overestimate the culture of America.
Who, then, for the dems?
(Goes to pop more popcorn....)
And they all hate America and Americans.
“Pete Buttigieg isnt going to win”
I wouldn’t be so sure.
A leftist pervert and his “husband”. Just the abomination the fifth-column leftist media love to fawn over.
Right now I’m leaning towards a Bloomberg-Stacey Abrams Dem ticket. Get your popcorn, indeed.
Despite the dnc’s crooked and corrupt efforts, Bernie will be the nominee.
Many dems, like my neighbors, won’t vote for Sanders. They will stay home. Trump wins re-election and we clean up on the down ballot.
Radical? He is Godless.
“Its a bridge too far.”
I said that about Obama in early 2008.
Marx hated these types and described them as a Bourgeois Socialists. He would have spit on them. Uncle Joe would have put one in the back of their heads and kicked them into shallow graves. It is spelled out very clearly in the Manifesto.
There has never been a justice system built to deal with this depth of wickedness we currently see in the republic.
I hope it’s Bernie.
I want a “tear off the bandage” Election that shows where the People of this Country want to end up, Capitalist or Socialist.
Enough of this pussyfooting crappola about Moderate Democrats.
There are no Moderate Democrats, there are just the ones that say what they really think in public while the rest hide their true Agenda behind kumbaya platitudes.
There isn’t a Democrat Politician alive who wouldn’t relish loading all us Deplorable types into Cattle Cars destined for Reeducation Camps, not a one.
Pete Buttigieg, Interior Decorator?

Joe Bidens hard-hitting new ad targeting Pete Buttigieg is drawing a lot of attention, in part because a number of commentatorsAnn Althouse is onedetect a tinge of homophobia. See if you can spot it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3beFOnjBoE
To me, the ad is an appropriate attack on Buttigiegs obvious lack of experience. I would criticize it for grossly exaggerating Bidens own importance; throughout his political career, he has been a mediocrity at best.
The alleged homophobia consists of the ads repeated use of the word decorative (also colorfully) in describing Buttigiegs achievements as Mayor of South Bend. It got by me, but maybe there are dogs out there who will hear a whistle.
In any event, the ad wont help Joe Biden, who has declined to around 12% in the current Real Clear Politics average. More on that, perhaps, later.
He is gay.
He is not liked by the minorities in his own city.
And those two things will knock him out before he opens his mouth.
I am not saying its right. I am not suggesting its fair.
I am saying it is just the way it is.
Whoever runs against Trump will be a sacrificial goat to the point of have a ZERO future in National Politics .
Dems will drop back to saving the doomed party and to gaining positions at the State level like they are doing in Virginia.
