Mayor Pete Suddenly Isn’t So Lovable Anymore

When the 2020 presidential campaign began, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg entered the race, he was quickly pegged as the most lovable candidate. And what’s not to love? He’s young, charismatic, and openly gay. And he’s even married. The Democrats couldn’t be more pleased with their good luck.

Buttigieg proves to just about everyone that the Democrat party is just as diverse as they say they are and just as woke. Even his opponents praised him. They all were quick to jump on the LGBT friendly train and make known their support of his views. After all, it wasn’t like he was going to actually win or anything.

But apparently, the tides are changing a bit. No, we aren’t saying he has much of a chance of beating Trump for the Oval Office, but his numbers are steadily rising. And in some states, like Iowa and New Hampshire, they are even calling him a frontrunner. Yes, his poll numbers have grown that much.

And this makes his opponents just that, someone to oppose at all costs. Gone are the days of niceties and pandering to his beliefs. Instead, it’s time for the claws to come out and cut him down to his own size, back to where he belongs, which according to those near the top, is nowhere near the White House.

Democratic candidates like Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, and even Senator Elizabeth Warren have all started throwing shade at South Bend, Indiana’s mayor.

As The Hill says, “Polls show Buttigieg rising to the top tier of candidates, alongside some whose political careers began before he was born. But as his support grows, other candidates still trying to achieve their own breakout moments are beginning to question whether he has the experience to run the nation or the ability to beat President Trump.”

Californian Senator Kamala Harris’ barb against Mayor Pete simply stated that the race was really only between a few key people now, which doesn’t include him, or her for that matter. For a while now, the frontrunners have been former vice president Joe Biden, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren. Harris was noted as coming in a close fourth place for a time after she took a powerful stab at Biden during one of the Democratic debates.

However, her ratings have dropped considerably, allowing Pete to surpass her and bump her back to a distant fifth place. So while there may be some truth to her jab, it’s pretty clear that she isn’t really in the running any longer either.

According to Warren, Buttigieg simply isn’t progressive enough to defeat Trump. Her evidence of this is his lack of full support for her Medicare for All plan. She says that anyone who doesn’t support this as she and Bernie do doesn’t have the gall to stand toe to toe with the president.

However, since both her and Bernie’s plans call for significant tax increases, the loss of millions of jobs, and over $20 trillion in new government spending, it is unclear how the project will get passed in the first place. Which more than likely means that Buttigieg’s lack of support will only boon his numbers.

Julian Castro’s accusations against Mayor Pete might be the most stinging, albeit the easiest to say. He said that Buttigieg doesn’t have a chance at winning because he can’t “appeal to the African American and Latino communities.” And Castro has a serious point. Whoever wins the nomination will have to achieve a considerable amount of support from black and Hispanic Americans. And Buttigieg is likely to not achieve that.

According to recent poll numbers, he currently has very little support from black voters. Many believe this is due to his openly gay sexuality, particularly among older voters. The belief is that the older and more religious black community doesn’t support his gay marriage and therefore doesn’t want America portrayed by such a man.

However, it’s far more likely that Buttigieg’s past experience with race has more to do with the decision than his sexuality.

Take the fact that he fired an African American police chief once in South Bend, or the drama that ensued when a black man was shot by a white police officer in his city. And we can’t forget about his decision to literally bulldoze over low-income properties lived in my mostly minority groups.

Then again, Castro isn’t doing much better, as he has only 1% of the black vote currently.

  1. The “politically correct” crowd AIN’T . . . And There’re FICKLE. That’s why it’s best to SHOOT STRAIGHT and forget the “woke” . . . because they AIN’T either. Both are more LOST than a GOOSE flying UPSIDE DOWN in their FOG. I’ll take the TRUTH any day. Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  2. Good Bye LGBTQ+ Go back into darkness!!!!!

  3. Buttigieg, You have bad ideas for this country, You don’t deal well with black people, You will lose a lot of votes because you are gay. You are against the consititution. You don’t like the lower income people, You want to take away peoples rights.

  4. I live in Granger, Indiana just outside the City of South Bend, one of the shooting Capitals of the Hoosier State! BeetleJuice, a name I’ve used for this idiot for the past two terms as the Mayor of South Bend who has done NOTHING FOR THE CITIZENS OF THE CITY, except pave the streets of Downtown, as opposed to, for instance the forgotten ghetto of the West Side, where I spent 19 years teaching in the most dangerous and violent High School in the South Bend Community School Corporation! I had 7 of my students shot dead in the streets during my tenure, and was shot at myself walking to my care in the faculty parking lot after school.

    BeetleJuice doesn’t deserve, nor is qualified as a trash collector let alone President of the UNITED STATES!!! He has done nothing for the citizens, and has now line his pockets with campaign contributions!!!! He’s a fraud!

  5. Butt looks like Sheldon on Big Bang Theory. I would never vote for a person with the name of Butt!

  6. I don’t care for Buttigieg but I think it is funny how the other Democrats show their jealousy even toward someone in their own party if they seem to be getting a little more attention than they do. Shows that the Democrats have no character and no respect for even their own party members. With no character and no respect for others, it is not surprising that they hate Trump and his supporters who show their respect for others and definitely shows that the REPUBLICANS have character. The REPUBLICANS are not violent like the liberal Democrats and the REPUBLICANS have tolerance for others whereas the Democrats definitely have no tolerance at all.

  7. AMEN TO ALL OF YOU IN THIS COMMENT SECTION ON BUTT BOY. I’M A 61 YEAR OLD WHITE USA GUY FROM CONNECTICUT, AND IT’S TRIMP IN 2020. THESE NUT JOBS ON THE LEFT HAVE COME FROM ANOTHER SOLAR SYSTEM IT SEEMS. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO DISCUSTED IN MY LIFE. OBOZO THE CLOWN PREZ DID NOTHING FOR THE BLACK AND HISPANIC AMERICANS WHILE HE WAS PREZ. HE JUST PLAYED GOLF EVERY DAY. KEEP THE FAITH AND WORK HARD EVERY DAY AT YOURE JOBS AND DONT TAKE ANY SCHIZEN FROM ANY OF THESE DIRTBAGS.

  8. The Party of Diversity, as they like to bill themselves these days, has a problem. Their three leading contenders are white, old, straight, and two of them are male. Not at all what you would call diverse. The ‘diverse’ candidates are so far down in the polls it is a contest as to whom will be the next one to drop out. On the other hand another communist has entered the contest, Bloomberg famous for his hatred of the 2nd amendment and large sodas. Depending on the state the deadline for filing extends from yesterday all the way up to March 2020. We could see even more clowns competing to be defeated by President Trump in 2020.

  9. This is not the country I grew up in. This candidate is a disgrace. The country’s values are like Soddam and Gomorrah and the Democrats are more interested in helping illegals than Americans. Is this what we want for our children and their children? Vote Trump

  10. Mayor Pete is the darling of the liberal news media because he pushes the gay agenda, and they love it. However, he is as radical as the rest of the Democrat Presidential hopeful field and is no more qualified than Obama. That didn’t work out well, did it?

  11. Wow! Talk about racist and hatred!

    People are people and what they do in their private lives is none of our business nor is it an invitation to judge or criticize them!

    Do you know the “golden Rule?

    “Do unto others as you would have them to do unto you”! Respect is the word that come to mind!

    What we do in our private lives is our own business! Our public lives are open but not necessarily to be judged!

    We are fortunate to live in a country/world where we can be who we are in our own homes and don’t have to hide or pretend to be whatever we aren’t as long as we don’t make others uncomfortable with our behavior in public!

  12. This comment is a bit crass but the truth is the truth. Most of us would never vote for this kind of person because he doesn’t understand the biological purpose for his penis. He thinks he’s alright and that there’s something wrong with the rest of us.
    Also, the historic purpose for a marriage is to pro-create. I’d really like to see him and his spouse accomplish that!

  13. I like this post, enjoyed this one thanks for posting.

  14. If America was ready for a homosexual or transgender president Obama would run Michelle/Michael in 2020. He is smart enough to wait until 2024 when the culture will be more liberal than it is now.

    Plus Pete is too arrogant for even those who THINK they are “woke”
