This Is Why Black Voters Dont Trust Mayor Pete Buttigieg

When South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg first entered the race, to be honest, I was mesmerized. He struck me as young, but brilliant. He spoke with compassion for the least of these and, led by his faith, he invoked the kind of Christianity long missing from the national discourseone that is inclusive, wrapped in love and equality, and that believes the test of us brings out the best in us. That he is gay and married was of no consequence to me, although I knew it would be for some. I wanted to believe that he would be the sort of candidate who challenged us to higher ground, but met us at our point of need. He has spent nearly …

Lewandowskis House Testimony Was Basically His Senate Campaign Launch

In calling in Corey Lewandowski to testify, House Judiciary Committee Democrats hoped theyd get a spectacle that might boost their impeachment efforts. Its unclear whether that will happen. What they clearly did get, however, was a spectacle that cemented Lewandowskis brand as an unapologetic fighter for Donald Trumpfor better or for worse. Tuesdays high-profile hearing was essentially a coming-out party for Lewandowskis long-teased, but still unannounced campaign for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire: he talked up his blue collar roots and service to President Trump while effusively praising his former boss and gleefully trolling his Democratic questioners.

Democrats Like Pete Buttigieg Who Ignore Identity Politics Are Surrendering Ground to White Supremacists

As the 2020 Democratic field fills with moderate white male candidates, were again hearing the The End of Identity Liberalism. The reality is, there is no such thing as identity politics; the work of ending racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, and other forces of hate is just plain politics. Thats because throughout our countrys history, especially in the last century, conservative political leaders have succeeded in advancing an agenda that widens the gap of economic inequality in part by exploiting the prejudices and fears of low-income white voters, justifying their bigotry in an arbitrary sense of white pride.
