Mayor Pete Buttigieg: Sorry, All Lives Don’t Matter

H/T Rod Dreher

… and just like that, the progressive wonderboy of the week Mayor Pete steps on a politically correct landmine, and makes exactly the point that I made in the previous post.

“In his State of the City address that March [2015], Mr. Buttigieg said it was “time for South Bend to begin talking about racial reconciliation.”

“There is no contradiction between respecting the risks that police officers take every day in order to protect this community, and recognizing the need to overcome the biases implicit in a justice system that treats people from different backgrounds differently,” Mr. Buttigieg said, according to a transcript of the speech published by The South Bend Voice.

“We need to take both those things seriously, for the simple and profound reason that all lives matter,” he added.

Four years later, as Mr. Buttigieg pursues the Democratic nomination for president, his use of the phrase “all lives matter” — which has often carried the connotation of ignoring the specific grievances of black Americans — has come under scrutiny. …

Repeat after me.

Buttigieg will never flip White populists. Ever. Period. End of story.

Political correctness is an evil, diabolical ideology. It divides people. It has toxified great swathes of our culture and political discourse. When “All Lives Matter” has become an offensive, controversial statement, it is time for the Democrats to address the elephant in the room.

Be smart, Andrew Yang. Stay in the centrist/moderate lane. Let the “progressives” devour their other candidates like Biden and Buttigieg over political correctness. Build a bridge to White populists who are the swing vote in the middle of the electorate. That’s how you win the presidency.

Don’t end up like Bubba/Buttigieg here and the rest of the field playing the wokeness game. Every concession to these SJW fanatics will only cover you in toxic sludge in the general election. Read the polls and steer a course through the middle of the electorate.

  1. Paying any attention to the mayor of Shithole, Indiana makes about as much sense as paying any attention to Andrew Gook.

    • current polls, for what they’re worth,

      put Genghiz Yang @ 1% (HW and some unknown person)

      and the South Bend faggot @ 2% (his buttbuddy, Tim Cook, and Anderson Cooper)

      and that’s among demoncratz

  2. PC=Cultural Marxism on steroids! Black Lives Matter? All Lives matter? White Lives Matter? Its OK to be white? I remember one politician saying that black lives, and only black lives, matter! That is insane! My response to this political insanity then is Aryana Above All! (Aryana being my preferred term for that demographic much like author Richard McCullough coined the term “Northerkind” in his book the Ideal and the Destiny to describe America’s founding stock, the Anglo-Saxon, the Germanic, the Celtic, AKA Caucasians of Northern and Northwest European stock.)

    • “America’s founding stock, the Anglo-Saxon, the Germanic, the Celtic, AKA Caucasians of Northern and Northwest European stock.”

      It all went south when we failed to preserve that.

      • Nothing wrong with Germanic or Anglo-Saxon people but this is why whites never get anywhere. People who are Slavic, Greek, Italians, and Spaniards are white Europeans as well. Support all European blood and quit the purity spiraling.

  3. Buttzkreig will never go anywhere in these times. Too many sane old people still living who know better.

  4. The guy’s family name literally means “Father of Chickens.” Make of that what you will.

  5. WNs or whatever we are calling ourselves here these days seem to be focusing on a lot of stuff that means nothing at all.
    If this A. Yang idea is something we are to get behind ,we need to start understanding it and what it consists of and we need to do this quickly so that the narrative can be sharp and witty by the time the campaigning all starts.
    I think i get what HW is talking about in general about UBI but i just find it so hard to believe that anything that is good for us wont be sabotaged.
    I think we all know that is going to happen, but what do we have to lose??!?
    More virtue signaling from the gop that hates us?
    I think Drumpft wants out.
    His posturing leads me to this conclusion.

  6. We have nothing to lose by ditching the GOP cucks …
    They do nothing for white America , or anyone for that matter unless its wall street , SM tech giants or israel.

  7. does it bother hunter wallace that this faggot will have higher poll numbers than chairman yang the entire 2020 campaign?

    nobody cares about chairman yang. this faggot appeals to more people.

    • Not really.

      Buttigieg’s numbers surged because he was on a CNN hall. Yang is coming up on MSNBC in a few minutes. He will be on national television this weekend and will have a CNN town hall coming up soon. He also qualified for a second debate.
