The brother-in-law of Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg claims he has received death threats and hate mail from rabid liberals after the Washington Post published an article about his family that he says is fake news.
Rhyan Glezman, a pastor in small-town Michigan, is calling out WaPo and Pete Buttigieg for fabricating a phony backstory for sell the openly homosexual mayor of South Bend, Indiana as a serious presidential contender for the Democrats in 2020.
The article described Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten, as coming from a small, impoverished home that imposed their Christianity on the gay man, resulting in him becoming homeless and isolated as a result. His brother Rhyan claims this narrative is false.
“A mayor from a small city and his husband, a child who grew up with nothing and his parents kicked him out … it makes a perfect political story for the campaign,” Glezman said to the Washington Examiner. “To me that’s very sad. If that’s all you have to stand on, you’re not fit to be president of the United States.”
While Glezman runs a community church in the small town of Clio in rural Michigan, he claims that his family’s household was never particularly religious. “We went to church at Easter and Christmas,” he said.
Glezman also noted Chasten’s privileged upbringing, showing that WaPo lied about that as well in their attempt to build the oppression narrative.
“The story makes it look as if he came from nothing, a poor family,” he said. “Chasten had everything, from cellphones paid for, car insurance paid for.”
He claims he never had a problem with his brother’s homosexuality, and his belief in the biblical definition of marriage has never been a strain on their relationship.
Glezman has met and hosted Chasten’s previous boyfriends in the past, and attended a baseball game with Chasten and Pete Buttigieg last year.
He even treated his brother with a trip to an amusement park to help him celebrate his 21st birthday, after he had already come out of the closet.
“Would I do that if we didn’t have a relationship?” he asked.
Unfortunately, Glezman has received death threats and other leftist vitriol because of the deceptive report issued by WaPo, showing how the fake news foments hatred and division to push forward Democratic Party interests.
“There was one that said I should go out to the woodshed and kill myself,” Glezman said, referring to a social media post made by a deranged liberal.
He added that he would not be supporting Buttigieg’s presidential ambitions due to his anti-constitutional beliefs, not because of his homosexuality.
“That’s not because he’s gay,” Glezman said. “When you want to rewrite the Electoral College, when you want to change the makeup of the Supreme Court, when you want to have open borders and not have any process there, his extreme view on abortion … those are things that are very important to me.”
Glezman believes the defamation campaign against his family is a part of a greater demonization plan to target Christians as apart of a coordinated assault on religious liberty.
“I believe for me, as a Christian, we’re the people being shunned, people being silenced, and a lot of the liberal side of things are becoming the bigots to Christianity and faith,” he said. “They are becoming the intolerant side.”
Christianity has become the world’s most persecuted religion, and biased reports from WaPo and other fake news outlets will ensure that it stays that way.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
