Pete Buttigieg (dark bkgrd)A pro-family activist says the endorsement of radical homosexual organizations is not going to sway grassroots Americans to support Peter Buttigieg for president.

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg continues to flounder in the polls. The latest Real Clear Politics average shows the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana is at fifth place with just six percent support. He does fare better in Iowa, where he is finishing third with nearly 16 percent support.

Now the open homosexual has received the endorsement of a group called Equality California and its Nevada partner, Silver State Equality, which together boast a membership of over 900,000. They intend to try to help Buttigieg in Nevada and California, where he is polling at less than eight percent.

Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH), does not think the American people will support someone like Buttigieg.

LaBarbera, Peter"I think the Democrats are in for a real trap here," he submits. "We already see in the African-American community there seems to be a tremendous dislike ... for Pete Buttigieg's candidacy. Part of that, I think, is because he is an open homosexual, and I don't think America is ready for that. I think the media are ready for it. I think the left-wing punditry are ready for it. But I don't think grassroots America is ready for this, because this would be a watershed."

LaBarbera thinks it unlikely that Buttigieg is even a vice-presidential candidate.

"I have to believe that Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden would select a person of color as vice president and not a white guy," the AFTAH president tells OneNewsNow.
