Seemingly out of nowhere, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana has made a name for himself in the 2020 Democrat presidential race.
Does Pete Buttigieg stand a chance against Bernie Sanders or anyone else? Probably not, at the end of the day.
However, Pete has a big secret Democrats might just really, really love.
And it has to do with his father…
From Washington Examiner:
The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.
Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel’s more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist.Advertisement - story continues below
He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory,” and a member of the editorial collective of Boundary 2, a journal of postmodern theory, literature, and culture. He spoke at many Rethinking Marxism conferences and other gatherings of prominent Marxists.
Ain’t that something?
Check out Pete’s thoughts on the Electoral College. He’s not a fan…
Democrats are extremely scared that President Trump will be re-elected in 2020.
It is probably because the left doesn’t have a solid candidate, or at least not one strong enough to take down the MAGA agenda.
Now, in liberal New Jersey, Democrats are working overtime to keep Trump’s name off the ballot next year.
Lawmakers in New Jersey have revived legislation intended to keep President Donald Trump’s name off the ballot in 2020. Democrats have targeted Trump with a proposal that “requires candidates for President and Vice-President of United States to disclose federal income tax returns to appear on ballot” and “prohibits Electoral College electors from voting for candidates who fail to file income tax returns.”
If a person not named Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden walks away with the Democrat nomination for president, it will be a major surprise.
Cory Booker, Jay Inslee, Liz Warren, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Ryan, Joaquin Castro, and many others are merely wasting their time.
Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is also running in 2020.
At Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention, Hickenlooper made it clear that he’ll sign a bill that gives reparations to descendants of slaves.
Where will the money come from? Who cares, right?
