'Mayor Pete' no moderate on abortion, Electoral College

Pete Buttigieg (Indiana mayor)An Indiana-based conservative activist says the state’s most famous mayor, a current favorite of Democrat voters, is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

In a recent Des Moines Register/CNN poll, Pete Buttigieg enjoyed a whopping 25-percent lead among other Democrats seeking the presidential nomination, enjoying a nine-point spread from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, with Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders tied for third at 15 percent.

According to the RealClearPolitics, Buttigieg is also leading Warren and others when that polls and four others are averaged together: 21 percent for the South Bend mayor, and 18 percent for Warren. 

The poll numbers are making the news just eight weeks from the pivotal Iowa Caucus.

Micah Clark, executive director of the American Family Association of Indiana, says Buttigieg deserves the “wolf” label for hiding far-left views on abortion and slavery reparations, for example.

In fact, Buttigieg suggested in a radio interview that life begins when a baby draws its first breath, drawing from the Bible to make that case.

The mayor, who is openly homosexual, has also railed against Christianity and the Church on the campaign trail, nakedly attempting to pick a fight with Vice President Mike Pence over his homosexuality despite the evangelical vice president never mentioning South Bend’s mayor or criticizing his sexuality.

Regarding reparations, Buttigieg announced during the summer that as president he would spend billions more on historically black colleges, and establish a $10 billion loan fund for black business owners, in addition to supporting reparation proposals, part of his "Douglass Plan" that is attempting to woo black Democrats. 

Buttigieg also supports abolishing the Electoral College, too, calling it “undemocratic,” yet the liberal candidate is being described as the “moderate’ choice according to The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Business Insider, among other news outlets.

Debate debate (three)According to the Times story, Buttigieg has “gradually reinvented” himself as more moderate.

“While [Buttigieg] hasn’t pivoted 180 degrees on policy proposals,” the Times reported, “he is modulating his positions and drawing explicit and implicit contrasts with his progressive rivals." 

Buttigieg comes across as moderate thanks to his Midwest roots and serving as a small-town mayor, says Clark, “but he's not moderate any more than Elizabeth Warren is moderate.”

Hoosiers don’t view him as moderate, Clark claims, and Buttigieg has never positioned himself that way until now.
