Have you seen the New York Magazine cover with crime-ridden South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg?
Good grief. The coloring, the smoothness of his skin. Buttigieg doesn’t even look lifelike. In fact, he looks like a character from a Pixar movie.
[If I were that kinda gal, I’d insert an inappropriate, gay-related Pixar joke here: Like maybe suggest “Boy Story” or “Finding Homo.” But I’m not that kinda gal. Then again, since I inserted it (albeit inside brackets), I guess I am that kinda gal.]
I know what they’re trying to do here.
They’re trying to portray Pete Buttigieg as harmless – just a regular guy and moderate Midwesterner — rather than as the far-Left crank who wants to take away your liberty while doing away with the parts of the Constitution he doesn’t like.
Pete hates the Electoral College because it’s keeping us from being a Democracy. Plus, it’s just a sinister plot by the GOP to “keep their agenda in play.”
Of course, we’re not a Democracy – the Constitution expressly designed our system of government as a Republic. And one of the ways it did that is by creating the Electoral College.
As Kurt Schlichter pointed out last week in his column “That Annoying Pete Buttigieg Guy is Just Another Liberal Hack:”
No, Democrat wonder candidate du jour Pete Buttigieg is not some bridge-building centrist who really gets the vibe of Normal Americans and promises to bring us all together in a festival of hugging and liking each other. That’s a con. He’s just another leftist who wants to do all the same miserable things to people like you and me that every other pinko trying to pick up the torch from Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit wants to do. Only to get past our defenses, to avoid tripping our alarms like Big Chief Liz and Willie Brown’s Ex do, he tries to be really low-key and boring about it.
And oh, is he ever boring. He looks like Sheldon on that Big Bang show, and when he talks you want to throw back your head and moan as the goo-goo clichés wash over you. He’s so boooooooring; he sounds like he’s always on the verge of chiding you to use your inside voice. Even Beto is more interesting, and Beto is not interesting.
And the media is working overtime to portray Buttigieg as a dull, boring middle-of-the-road wonk. You know, the same con they pulled with Obama.
But Buttigieg isn’t a harmless Pixar character.
If he’s a Pixar character at all, he’s Sid from “Toy Story” – hell-bent on setting fire the very things that make his life so swell.
From Schlichter’s column:
Where is he on other stuff? Lefty Dem down the line. Killing babies minutes before they’re born? He’s cool with late-term kid-snuffing, unlike us bad Christians – what are we, Pete? Was that “hypocrites?”
He’s perfectly happy to dictate every aspect of your life because of the global warming scam. No cars, no planes, no Big Macs for you! Pete knows better.
He wants to take over your health care because the present system – you know, the one that Obama and liberals like Mayor Pete put into place – is a total failure. Don’t worry, they will get it right this time! Those Harvard guys are super smart, you know.
In fact, if you look at everything Pete Buttigieg is promising, you will not find one single proposal that either increases how much of your own earnings you get to keep or that increases your freedom. Not one. Just like with every other liberal Democrat, everything he would impose upon you will make you poorer and less free. But to him and his ilk, that’s fine, because your prosperity and your liberty are not the goals. They are obstacles to the real objective – more prosperity and more power for people like Pete Buttigieg.
This is exactly why the media is giving Pete a little Pixar white-wash.
Don’t be fooled.
Buttigieg’s attacks on Mike Pence reveal something ugly about the guy – just like Obama’s attacks on his typical white grandmother revealed the ugly truth behind The OneTM.
As Schlichter puts it:
He doesn’t want a society where Americans come together. He wants to keep ripping us apart, while using his soothing tones and unity clichés to okey-doke us into letting him into the Oval Office. And if we are fooled again, like so many suckers were by Barack Obama, we’d find the new boss is the same as the old boss.
This is exactly why the media is trying to turn Pixar Pete into an innocuous wunderkind. They figured they fooled us in 2008. And their hope is lightning will strike twice.
Want proof? I mean aside from the Pixar-style cover of New York Magazine? Just watch this nauseating compilation from the Free Beacon:
Let’s keep Pixar Sid … I mean Pixar Pete … far, far away from the White House, okay?
