Buttigieg Drops Insane Amount Of Money On Private Jet Travel. The Irony Is, He’s A Fan Of Green New Deal.

Oh look. More left-wing hypocrisy.

Published

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would no doubt be livid with Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg if she saw the insanely massive amount of cash that the South Bend mayor was dropping on private airplane travel, what with him being a big supporter of the Green New Deal and all.

The Green New Deal, AOC’s pet project, calls for ending the use of airplane travel in exchange for super fast trains. Is it any surprise to see AOC is living in some sort of crazy fantasy world? Seems like that’s where she spends the majority of her time. Perhaps she should give us all a ticket to this magical land so we can enjoy the free stuff that seemingly falls from the sky?

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

Buttigieg spent roughly $300,000 on charter flights this year, nearly $45,000 more than the second-highest spender, former Vice President Joe Biden. Biden has spent approximately $256,000 thus far, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at $60,000.

Other top spenders include Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) who both spent just under $20,000 on flights for their campaigns.

“We are careful with how we spend our money and we fly commercial as often as possible,” Chris Meagher, the press secretary for Buttigieg’s campaign, told AP on Wednesday. “We only fly noncommercial when the schedule dictates.”

Meagher went on to say that the distance South Bend is from major airports is another reason they’ve had to rely so heavily on chartering a private jet so often.

Wouldn’t someone who is dedicated to a certain set of beliefs and principles do whatever it took to live those principles out, even if it was a major hassle and inconvenience? Seems like that would be the authentic thing to do.

But, then again, if you’re only supporting something like the Green New Deal to appeal to a demographic base of voters, and not out of a passionate belief it’s the right thing to do, guess hypocrisy makes a lot of sense.

Save conservative media!

Nick Cannon is a comedian, actor, TV host, racist, rapper, and father to a couple of Mariah Carey’s kids. Did you catch the racist part? That one shouldn’t go overlooked. On Tuesday, the former Nickelodeon star was canned from one of his gigs for anti-white and anti-Semitic comments. From Daily Wire: “The Masked Singer” host Nick Cannon lit up the internet this past weekend when he said that white people are inferior to black people due to the lack of melanin in their skin. Speaking on an episode of “Cannon’s Class,” the television host argued that “melanated people” have a natural sense of compassion and soul that white people lack, creating jealousy and fear that causes them to act out in evil ways. Cannon said, “They had to be savages, they had to be barbaric, because they’re in these Nordic mountains, they’re in these rough environments, so they’re acting as animals. So they are the ones that are actually closer to animals, they are the ones that are actually the true savages.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/Adam4d/status/1283087941271801861?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1283087941271801861%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-nick-cannon-white-people-are-a-little-less-closer-to-animals-true-savages And here’s the part where Nick gets fired… ViacomCBS announced late on Tuesday evening that they had terminated their relationship with left-wing entertainer Nick Cannon after the actor made remarks that were widely deemed to be anti-Semitic on his podcast. “ViacomCBS condemns bigotry of any kind and we categorically denounce all forms of anti-Semitism,” the company said in a statement. “We have spoken with Nick Cannon about an episode of his podcast ‘Cannon’s Class’ on YouTube, which promoted hateful speech and spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.” Nick, Nick, Nick.

Black Community Leaders Calling for Comeback of Anti-Crime Unit Due to NYC Crime Spike

Listen up, de Blasio!

You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Those aren’t just great song lyrics, as the words can be applied to anything and everything a person takes for granted. Bill de Blasio and Andrew Cuomo might want to take note. Check this out, from TDW: Leaders in the black community in New York City are calling on the New York City Police Department to deal with the recent crime surge in the city by reinstating the plainclothes anti-crime unit that the department recently dismantled as anti-police sentiment exploded in wake of the death of George Floyd. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, a former cop, “became the second member of the African-American community to call on the NYPD to stop the violence by re-instituting the Anti-Crime Unit — undercover cops whose job was to get guns off the street,” CBS New York reported. “This, as shootings for the week went up 277%, 49 compared to 13 in 2019. The number of victims is up 253%, 60 compared to 17 in 2019.” Weren’t we told by lefties that crime would decrease if there were less police officers on the streets? Isn’t that basically what the first lady of New York City said, herself? From New York Post: Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 28 incidents and 38 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Friday. By comparison, the same week last year there were only 12 shootings for the entire week.
