Buttigieg slams DEMOCRATS for DIVIDING Americans with identity politics!

The Booty-Judge is aiming to pick up some people with the middle of the road politics with his honesty about how Democrats are dividing Americans with identity politics.

From the Hill:

In a speech to the Human Rights Campaign, a major LGBT rights group, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who is gay, warned of a “crisis of belonging in this country” being exacerbated by “so-called identity politics” that emphasize how one person hasn’t walked in another’s shoes.

“Something that is true, but it doesn’t get us very far,” he said.

“I’m not talking about pretending there are equivalencies between the different patterns of exclusion in this country,” Buttigieg clarified.

“Divisive lines of thinking” have entered Democrats’ mindset, Buttigieg continued, explaining: “Like when we’re told we have to choose between supporting an auto worker and a trans woman of color, without stopping to think about the fact that sometimes the auto worker is a trans woman of color, and she definitely needs all the security she can get.”

“The wall I worry about the most is not the president’s fantasy wall on the Mexican border that’s not going to get built anyway,” Buttigieg said. “What I worry about are the very real walls being put up between us as we get divided and carved up.”

“When an auto worker, 12 years into their career, is no longer sure how to provide for their family, they’re not part of the country we think of ourselves as all living in together. That’s why we can’t seem to get on the same page,” Buttigieg said.

There’s video of his statement:



I think this is really smart of him because there *are* a few critics of Trump in the middle who are willing to swing to the left if they have a more reasonable candidate. However, he has to paper over some really really extreme stuff he’s already pitched – like getting rid of the electoral college.

That’s it for Sunday – we hope you had a great Mother’s Day!!! If you haven’t already, call your mom. If for whatever reason you can’t call your mom, pray for those who are having a tough time with the holidy. It’ll make you feel better.

Ya’ll have an open thread.

I only have one fodder tweet:

Whoever that Latino is, he is clearly intelligent and handsome.

  1. Somehow we think it’s ok to sexualize young children, but it’s not ok to teach them to be self-sufficient.

    That’s happening more and more and more. CPS is completely out of control, with zero oversight and zero accountability.

  2. There’s only 3 things in life you can be sure of .. If you’re lucky enough not to be conceived by Democrat abortion luving parent(s)

    1 – Death

    2- Taxes

    3- Democrat Election Propaganda Dogma

  3. Just read that the beautiful and great Doris Day has died at 97. I adored her and her movies.

    1. I grew up loving her and her movies. I just read that her last movie was “With Six You Get Eggroll” in 1968. Her legacy endures!!!

  4. >> Like when we’re told we have to choose between supporting an auto worker and a trans woman of color, without stopping to think about the fact that sometimes the auto worker is a trans woman of color, <<

    Wut?

  5. Since I can still squeeze this in on the open thread, I just heard that the much ballyhooed return of the Murphy Brown show, with original cast (and Candace Bergen’s undisguised acid Leftist tongue) has been cancelled after only 13 episodes.

    So sad! 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

  6. Whoever that Latino is, he is clearly intelligent and handsome. With all that charisma this masked Latino should hang out with Captain Cucumber from South Bend and educate him on messaging.
    😯

  7. Isn’t he the candidate who said Christians have to reform their faith? Wasn’t his personal attack on Mike Pence crass, gutter level identity politics?

    Isn’t he one of several candidates pushing for gun control laws to treat every law abiding gun owner as a felon first, …maybe due process later?

    Isn’t he running — even in this very speech — as a LGBTQSWERTYABCXYZ person first, not as a leftist Democrat politico who happens to be gay?

    1. No prediction; way too much could happen between now, the official nominations, the general campaign, and the election.

      To put this in perspective, we are still 5 months away from when Gov. Scott Walker seemed to have a lock on the GOP nomination for 2016…and then the bottom fell out of his campaign.

      I fear many of the possibilities, but I’m a nobody and I’m still not willing to make a prediction.

      How about you? What do you think will happen?

  8. “What I worry about are the very real walls being put up between us as we get divided and carved up.”

    What is the democrat party if not the multitude of victim groups created by the fantasy walls erected by progressives?

  9. Don’t believe a word of it…especially with his recent attacks on Christians & Mike Pence.

    Just another identity politics scumbag trying to play both sides.

  10. “When a (Trans) auto worker, 12 years into (it’s) career, is no longer sure how to provide for (it’s) family, (that’s) not part of the country we think of ourselves as all living in together. That’s why we can’t seem to get on the same page,” Buttigieg said.

    That’s because this concept is alien to traditional Americana. It is a perversion of the family and an abomination overall. America was built on the tenets of the Bible and biblical principles. So, it’s not normal to embrace this perverse way of life (homosexuality and trans). It’s a mental problem and people are suffering because of it (straight and otherwise). I’m fascinated that he doesn’t see this or understand why it’s resisted by MOST Americans (for now).

    1. In another forum I frequent someone commented that back in the 1950s, during the Cold War, her Catholic teacher said that “The Communists believe that the only things standing between them and world domination are the Church and the Family.” Those words were quite prophetic as both of those things have been under attack for decades now. The America of the 1950s no longer exists. Today, traditional values are portrayed as old fashioned or even hateful and bigoted. Heaven help us if Buttigieg, or any of the other radical leftists that make up the Democrat party now, gets into power to finish Obama’s transformation of America.

  11. Democrats have consistently taken the low road… In fact, they have been evil and animalistic in their comments, sentiments and policies. So, it’s wise for this loser to take a higher road for once. Aside from his disgusting homosexual distinction, playing it a little more to the middle is wise. That’s something I’d expect from Biden. Regardless, I hope people don’t fall for ANYTHING the democrats are promising or preaching about. There’s a thin, slimy veneer over their deep pool of evil and anti-Americanism. A democrat CANNOT be allowed to win.

  12. Once again I would be honored to give my highest regards to all the Ladies of TRS.
    Whether or not you are a Mother you all show the great qualities that make all
    “Moms” so special. Thank You.

  13. Strange way for a democrat to try and differentiate himself considering that most of their party is ALL ABOUT IDENTITY POLITICS. Of course this maybe a wink/nod strategy here like Obama pretending to be for traditional marriage to maintain the black vote back in ’08. I guess Alfred Neuman here thinks he can gradually win back the blue-collar demographic that the dems lost in ’16? Only way that could even start to happen for the democrat nominee in this cycle is if the economy absolutely crumbles before election day.

    1. Next thing you know he’s going to come out and
      say something positive about God. That will be the
      ultimate kiss of death for this liberal.

  14. Most leftists with an IQ above room temperature can see that identity politics is a tactic that plays out once you get beyond one or two major groups, like blacks and Mexican labororers, or blacks and gays, etc.

    Black Americans saw their vote being taken for granted under Obama, so Trump ended up with one of the highest percentages of black votes for a Republican in quite some time. And there arent enough “trans” voters to effect any election more significant than town council.

    So, it’s time for fake outreach. The idea is to cover up the glaring holes caused by decades of fake concern for identity groups.

    They are no longer fooling the major groups: blacks, latinos, and labor. All they really have is Big Education, who are “in on the joke” of pretending to care about victims.

    1. As an aside….

      if they don’t find you handsome, they better find you handy”

      -Red Green

      1. @tjk-checkmark Speaking for myself, I find a handy man is always handsome. 😉

      2. Or funny…beauty fades, but having a good sense of humor will get you through the rough spots!

  15. I ain’t buying what he’s selling. As for the tweet Sooper posted, our children belong to the government. Yes, there are children that need to be looked out for, but the CPS system is very much abused by those who are running it. I’ve heard too many horror stories about what they’ll do to keep kids away from good families, and I’ve heard horror stories locally about foster parents that never have kids removed from their care. The state agencies want those federal dollars. Also met a guy last weekend who is an attorney for our CPS (known as DHS in my state). He was saying how he is having to coach a caseworker for an upcoming court appearance. Idk the story about the kid(s) taken but IMO coaching a caseworker shouldn’t be a thing.

  16. Well there you go…. “London Mayor Sadiq Khan said, last week, that he didn’t believe President Donald Trump was worthy of a state banquet hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace,” even saying Trump doesn’t deserve the honor.

    Not a problem: Queen Elizabeth has declined to invite Khan to Trump’s state dinner.

    Hey Boo Boo the Fool!

  17. Got to his joke about how his husband didn’t fold the laundry when it was his turn and decided that I had better things to do with my time.

    1. I got to about the 8 minute mark.. and from what I can tell, all he’s running on is being gay

    2. oh God he is all identity politics all he says is he gay and a christian …and he never shuts up about the gay stuff who cares you idiot

  18. There’s only 3 things in life you can be sure of .. If you’re lucky enough not to be conceived by Democrat abortion luving parent(s)

  26. Meh, this guy. But I did read about the Mexican wrestler that died in the ring. He was in Nacho Libre and I thought of Soop and his avatar. Yeah, Mother’s Day is not a great day for me. But I’ll survive.

  29. @central-valley I believe Biden killed his chances last week when he called for free healthcare for illegals. Even the ordinary Dems are turned off by this.

    As for Haley/Crenshaw, it’s a little early isn’t it? Who knows who else might emerge?
