Buttigieg Says Trump Voters Are ‘Looking The Other Way’ On Racism (VIDEO)

Written by K. Walker on August 20, 2019

It looks like Mayor Pete got the memo from the New York Times that the way to beat Trump in 2020 is to call the President and anyone who votes for him racist.

The Times recently decided that the only way to cover President Trump now that “Russian Collusion” was a hoax, is to call him racist. 

The question is — who exactly is running things?

Are the Democrats giving the Media(D) their talking points, or is the Media(D) pushing the narrative for the 2020 hopefuls to follow?

It’s a chicken/egg conundrum.

But, you can be sure that the Media(D) and the Democrats are going to make sure that they’re on the same page.

The mayor of South Bend has been incredibly divisive in his campaign so far.

He’s attempted to court Christian voters by repeatedly vilifying the faith of President Trump and Vice President Pence.

Recently, he joined the many other 2020 Democrat hopefuls in labeling President Trump as a white nationalist.

Buttigieg appeared on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper and said that a vote for President Trump is turning a blind eye to racism in exchange for economic prosperity.

Presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg, who is among the Democratic contenders who has called Trump a white nationalist, was asked on CNN’s “State of the Union” whether it’s a “racist act” to vote for him in 2020.

“Well, at best, it means looking the other way on racism,” Buttigieg responded. “But, I think, a lot of people are wondering what kind of deal even that is supposed to be.”

The South Bend, Indiana, mayor pointed to Trump’s recent campaign rally in New Hampshire when the president said people will support him – even if they don’t like him – because the economy is doing well.

“You have no choice but to vote for me because your 401(k), everything is going to be down the tubes,” Trump said. “Whether you love me or hate me, you’ve got to vote for me.”

Buttigieg said Trump’s message is really: “I want you to look the other way on the racism, tolerate the negativity, accept the instability of my administration because I am going to deliver for you job growth almost as good as the Obama years.”

“That’s what his argument amounts to right now,” Buttigieg said. “And it’s part of the reason why he’s unpopular.”

So, who is it that’s stoking racism, again?

Heather MacDonald wrote in a fantastic Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal said that it isn’t President Trump that is racist — but his opponents that are labeling him that way. President Trump rarely uses racial language but Democrats are obsessed with “white privilege” and constantly inject race into everything.

Long before the El Paso massacre, President Trump’s political opponents accused him of sowing “division” with his “racist language.” Mr. Trump “exploits race,” “uses race for his gain,” is engaged in a “racially divisive reprise” of his 2016 campaign, stokes “racial resentments,” and puts “race at the fore,” the New York Times has reported over the past several months.

Yet Mr. Trump rarely uses racial categories in his speech or his tweets. It is the media and Democratic leaders who routinely characterize individuals and groups by race and issue race-based denunciations of large parts of the American polity.

Scott Adams, creator of the Dilbert comic strip has explained how it seems that we’re living in completely different political realities by using the analogy of Two Movies on One Screen. In one movie, President Trump is a vile, horrible, racist and everything that he does is based on his racism. This is fact, not theory and any honest person can see it. The plot to the other movie is very different. In that movie, President Trump promised to not be politically correct and he says what he thinks. This makes it easy for his opponents to cherrypick his statements and frame them as racial attacks. Adams even explains how you can tell which one is the actual reality by using a thing called “evidence.”That’s a blog post that undecided voters would do well to read.

So far, Mayor Pete has endorsed Third Trimester abortion, picked a fight with Vice President Pence over who is a better Christian, and said that Trump voters are so selfish that they’ll overlook racism to get a bump in their 401k.

I don’t know about you, but to me — Mayor Pete Buttigieg doesn’t seem like a very nice guy. He’s divisive and labels those who don’t agree with him as bigots.

Isn’t that what he complains that President Trump does?

I guess Mayor Pete missed the Sunday School lesson on Matthew 7 about specks and planks.

We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.

But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:

“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.

Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
