Media: Pete! Pete! He's our man!

Pete Buttigieg (green bkgrd)An Indiana pro-family activist says it's easy to explain the left's current fawning over the mayor of South Bend.

Since officially declaring himself a 2020 presidential candidate, Democrat Pete Buttigieg has become the darling of the left-wing media. A recent montage aired on Fox News had one mainstream media talking head after another espousing the virtues of the man who's come to be known as "Mayor Pete."

The Associated Press states Buttigieg has "drawn attention for his plainspoken style, and the historic nature of his candidacy as the first openly gay contender." Micah Clark, executive director of the American Family Association of Indiana, agrees with at least a portion of that assessment. Clark says Buttigieg's only real claim to fame is his lifestyle.

"He's a homosexual activist who's 'married' to a man – and that's kind of why the media has become fascinated with him," Clark begins. "It's certainly not because of his record as a mayor. South Bend actually has a higher per-capita murder rate than the city of Chicago; the jobs numbers in South Bend are poor; his success rate as a mayor is pretty pathetic.

"Being a mayor of a modest-size city at 37 years old doesn't in my mind really qualify him to be the leader of the free world."

The pro-family activist argues that it's clearly evident Buttigieg's LGBT activism is fomenting religious bigotry.

"His attacks on Mike Pence for his faith are sickening," says Clark. "I mean, he has attacked the vice president for his Christian faith, his traditional Christian beliefs, while claiming that he himself – the mayor – is a Christian … and yet he rewrites the Bible to say Well, the Bible's wrong on homosexuality."

Clark contends if the media wasn't propping up the young mayor, nobody would even know who he is.
