Buttigieg - Like Father Like Son? Hint, Dad Was a Full Blown Marxist.

So you have to wonder, is Mahler Pete a full blown Marxist/Socialist in a moderate wrapper? 

 

Pete Buttigieg's father was a Marxist professor who lauded the Communist Manifesto
 

The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin. 

 

Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel's more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist. 

 

He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory,” and a member of the editorial collective of Boundary 2, a journal of postmodern theory, literature, and culture. He spoke at many Rethinking Marxism conferences and other gatherings of prominent Marxists. 

 

In a 2000 paper for Rethinking Marxism critical of the approach of Human Rights Watch, Buttigieg, along with two other authors, refers to "the Marxist project to which we subscribe." 

 

In 1998, he wrote in an article for the Chronicle of Higher Education about an event in New York City celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Manifesto. He also participated in the event. 

 

"If The Communist Manifesto was meant to liberate the proletariat, the Manifesto itself in recent years needed liberating from Marxism's narrow post-Cold War orthodoxies and exclusive cadres. It has been freed," he wrote. 

 

"After a musical interlude, seven people read different portions of the Manifesto. Listening to it read, one could not help but be struck by the poignancy of its prose," he wrote. The readers "had implicitly warned even us faithful to guard against conferring upon it the status of Scripture, a repository of doctrinal verities." 

 

“Equity, environmental consciousness, and racial justice are surely some of the ingredients of a healthy Marxism. Indeed, Marxism's greatest appeal — undiminished by the collapse of Communist edifices — is the imbalances produced by other sociopolitical governing structures,” Buttigieg wrote. 
 

Paul Kengor, a professor at Grove City College and an expert in communism and progressivism, said Buttigieg was among a group of leftist professors who focused on injecting Marxism into the wider culture.

Like Obama's and his dear old Communist dad. The one that ran out on his wife and child just like Karl Marx.

 

Those Communists are sure tough on families.

Ummm.  He ran out on Ivana and was banging Marla Maples a couple years before he got divorced.

 

As for McDougal and Daniels, given the Fornicator In Chief's penchant for stretching the truth, I will believe them.

Dennis Hastert.  Repub Speaker of the House.  Convicted.  How quickly you guys forget.

 

In court submissions filed in April 2016, federal prosecutors alleged that Hastert had molested at least four boys as young as 14 years of age during his time as a high school wrestling coach.[5] At a sentencing hearing, Hastert admitted that he had sexually abused boys whom he had coached.[6] Referring to Hastert as a "serial child molester", a federal judge imposed a sentence of 15 months in prison, two years' supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.[7][3] Hastert was imprisoned in 2016 and was released 13 months later.[8]

Not like the more recent Epstein and Weinstein, and all the other liberal icons in the MSM and the Dim Party that got busted by the me too movement or have been convicted of child rape like that congressman in California.

 

Hastert was the exception not the rule.

 

No equivalency there.

 

When Trump has an intern blow him in the oval office, or rides the Lolita Express 26 times let me know .

Pro-tip: If you have to resort to invoking Denny Hassert to make some point, you are not winning the argument. 

Pro-tip: stop speaking about you're home boy's opponents parents when there's endless **** people can talk about Trump's father. You're not gonna win that argument and you know it.....
