to support Pete Buttigieg over
sexual orientation, youth

Council Bluffs, Iowa—Democratic voters here love Mayor Pete, but they may be penalizing him because he’s gay. It’s not that they hold it against Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Indiana, but they fear the rest of the country may not be ready for a 37-year-old, married, openly gay man to sit in the White House, so they are reluctant to help him win the party’s presidential nomination. “Pete Buttigieg is interesting to me, but, honestly, he is probably not electable, and the last thing I want is Donald Trump in office,” said David Cline. “I do believe his sexuality is an issue for folks, which is too bad.


Oprah Winfrey, 5/1/19, Washington Times: "I call Mayor Pete Buttigieg ‘Buttabeep, Buttaboop’." Is there a more fetid bunch of homophobic age-ists than the Democrat party, with their identity politics and litmus tests? Never mind that at least one of their front-runners is an obvious closeted homosexual with a hired "boo." And yet, the MSM never calls them to task, instead spreading lies about The Donald being mean.

Pete Buttigieg and this author, Seth Mclaughlin are both typical left wing bullies. They are completely demanding, until they don't get their way. At which point, they become victims. Poor them.

The writer sells voters short. I don't think a significant number of voters care that Buttigieg is gay. But many care a great deal that he cohabits with a male he calls his wife. And even more voters would be concerned that he can't even successfully operate a fairly small city, therefore cannot be trusted in the oval office. I care that he looks like a Keebler elf.

I evaluate whether he has done an excellent job in South Bend which he HAS NOT. The clip of him facing black voters was absolutely pathetic. Inexperienced, wrong on most issues, arrogant, shallow - that too.

Oprah has long ago been unmasked as being an ignorant and racist wretch. She gladly takes the money of white women to add to her bank account, but boy she sure has no respect for them at all. In this instance though, I can give her a sliver of agreement over Buttabing. He is not ever going to be presidential material. He barely is fit to be mayor. Anyone who attacks the majority of the country like he does with his attacks on Christians, is not fit for higher office. He wants to be president of the gaystapo, and that is where his thinking ends.

Discerning voters select candidates based on their performance while holding a position of responsibility in either the private or public sector. Pete and the rest of the Dem candidates are better suited to be cast on a Reality Show than hold Public Office.

Nope. First of all, just being a Rhodes Scholar and graduating from Harvard disqualifies him. From what I've seen in recent decades, people educated at that institution are so alienated from reality and common sense that they cannot possibly serve as leaders. Secondly, in spite of a man's sexual orientation, it is hard to believe that anyone who is incapable of understanding the role of marriage and raising children in anchoring and strengthening society and honoring that institution is sufficiently wise to lead the nation. No, Pete does not have a 'husband', because the word is meaningless without a 'wife', and pretending otherwise is evidence of a major departure from the accumulated wisdom of previous generations.

Liberals seem to to be looking for excuses to prevent Mr Buttigieg from gaining traction. It's always "someone else's fault" that this candidate won't be widely accepted. The fakery is palpable.

And that was a terrible thing for our country. We have to open up institutions. We can’t let these people be on the streets.”(Snip) Mr. Trump also noted the standoff in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

An Afghan asylum seeker who tried to murder a complete stranger while 'fuelled' by a desire to kill English people was jailed for 21 years. Samiulahaq Akbari, 22, was caught on CCTV walking into the Tesco Extra in Thornton Heath, south London, on January 8. Akbari tapped a customer on the shoulder and asked for his nationality. He then took a swing at the victim, Mr Speight, with a ten-inch kitchen knife when he said he was from the UK. Mr Speight managed to kick Akbari off when he leapt on him and miraculously escaped from the scuffle without a mark on him.

The same year that Emma Lazarus‘ poem welcoming the world’s “poor” and “huddled masses” was added to the Statue of Liberty, the U.S. government rejected 5,812 of those same new arrivals for being poor. In his annual report to Congress in 1903, U.S. Immigration Commissioner William Williams warned that too many immigrants were “entering this country with inadequate sums of money,” leaving the system with thousands of charity cases and sinking the country’s standard of living. More than a century later, the debate between those who subscribe to Lazarus‘ optimistic view and those who take Williams‘ more cautious approach to immigration is playing out again

The picture depicting the former president apparently lounging on a chair in the Oval Office, wearing red heels and posing suggestively in a blue dress redolent of Monica Lewinsky was in a room off the stairway of the Upper East Side townhouse.

When it was first reported that pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein had died in a maximum-security prison, supposedly by suicide, the Internet was immediately ablaze with conspiracy theories. That's not so strange considering that several people had warned beforehand that Epstein had dirt on many important people; people who would be well served by his untimely death. An autopsy has now found, the Washington Post reports, that Epstein "sustained multiple breaks in his neck bones, according to two people familiar with the findings." And that's rather... interesting...
