South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is a homosexual and he likes to remind people of that… A LOT!

Whether delivering speeches, sitting for an interview, attacking political opponents, or engaging in casual conversation, Buttigieg artfully weaves the topic of his sexuality into them all.

It’s as though the rising star of the Democrat party is suffering from some form of homonarcissism: an uncontrollable need to boast of his “God-given” desire for fellas over gals whenever and wherever possible.

What a treat it must be to engage with Mayor Buttigieg at casual social functions:

“Hi, I’m presidential hopeful and gay man, Pete Buttigieg. I’m the first openly-gay presidential candidate in history, and I’m also gay. As a gay man, I’d love to have your support for my campaign in which I’m declaring myself as the first openly gay presidential candidate and openly gay mayor of South Bend who’s gay and is married to another gay man who is also gay. Hey, would you like one of these tasty horderves? I would; I’m starving… and I’m also gay!”

I’m increasingly convinced that Pete Buttigieg has “South Bend Mayor and Gay Man” embossed on his business cards.

Look, there’s absolutely no shame in being a homosexual. America came to grips long ago with the reality that the Protestant church has no business imposing its beliefs on society through the Federal government.

Who Mayor Buttigieg chooses to share his life and bedroom with is his own private business, and while there will always be morons in our society who insist upon spewing their ignorant “Westboro Baptist style” hatred at the LGBTQ community, the bottom line is that being gay in 21st century America doesn’t make you special, brave, or unique; it just makes you gay. You didn’t choose it; you didn’t earn it; it’s not something you ‘worked for’ and ‘achieved.’ 

Unfortunately, Pete Buttigieg has chosen to make his sexuality EVERYONE’s business. It apparently defines him to such an extent as a man and a candidate for President that it has become a running theme throughout his campaign, and he is now using it as a weapon against his political opponents. 

On Sunday, Buttigieg spoke at a fundraising brunch for a group that supports LGBTQ candidates. That’s right; their support of progressive candidates is contingent upon their homosexuality. Facts, policies, political platform, and ability to govern are inconsequential. If you sleep with men, they’re behind you.

In his remarks, Buttigieg stated that many gay people get the impression from society that there’s something wrong with them, adding that it “is a message that puts you at war not only with yourself, but with your maker.”

“That’s the thing that I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand,” Buttigieg said of the Vice President. “That if you have a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”

How interesting that Pete Buttigieg is entitled to his religious beliefs, but Vice President Mike Pence is not entitled to his views on same-sex marriage or religious freedom. Mike Pence doesn’t hate gay people; he supports a traditional and Biblical definition of marriage. That might seem offensive to the enlightened progressives who condemn the Christian faith while inexplicably championing the causes of the Muslim community, but it doesn’t make him a bigot, hateful, or a threat to the LGBTQ community.

Also note Buttigieg’s acknowledgement in his statements that his homosexuality defines him rather than his character, his accomplishments, his beliefs, or his political positions.

The mainstream media is equally OBSESSED with Buttigieg’s sexuality. A recent headline at the Washington Post read: “In Buttigieg, gay Americans see a symbol of acceptance.”

That’s jolly and swell that Buttigieg makes the LGBTQ community and its advocates feel warm and fuzzy, but feelings have nothing to do with a candidate’s ability to govern as the chief executive of the United States.

What should matter are Buttigieg’s policies and his political platform, yet the majority of his supporters have no idea where he stands on some of the most crucial issues we’re confronting as a nation today. 

Why is the entirety of Pete Buttigieg’s suitability as a candidate for President dependent upon who he chooses to sleep with? Because it’s an opportunity for mindless millennials and progressives to fancy themselves as being a part of some historically significant movement: Help elect America’s first openly-gay President! #gogayin2020

It’s also a simple-minded yet effective point of attack for any candidate or conservative voter who dares to oppose Buttigieg on a policy level: “homophobe” is the new “racist.”

Welcome to the 2020 race for President, folks. This one promises TWICE as much name-calling from the left as 2016!
