However, the LGBT movement is not necessarily buying what the fake news is selling. There is a growing backlash against Buttigieg among hardcore progressives who claim he is not gay enough to be the first homosexual President of the United States.
An article written by an openly gay man in The Outline titled, “Why Pete Buttigieg is Bad for Gays” has added fuel to the controversy by implying that the South Bend Mayor is apart of an establishment conspiracy to co-opt and neutralize the nascent LGBT movement.
Author Jacob Bacharach bemoaned Buttigieg for being the avatar of what is presently considered societally acceptable from the homosexual community.
“There is a certain kind of gay guy. He is very likely white. He would say that he is in his “mid-thirties,” although he is much closer to the end than to the beginning of his last credibly young decade,” Bacharach wrote.
“Older women think he is handsome; younger men are not so sure. He is a professional of some kind — not ostentatiously wealthy, but comfortable enough to take the occasional ski trip in Colorado or spring vacation in Spain. He probably enjoys “the theater.” He is sure to mention at some point that he likes to read,” Bacharach continued.
Bacharach resents “Mayor Pete” as he calls him for peddling the “type of unthreatening, socially acceptable, vaguely conservative gay identity” that he feels holds the LGBT movement back.
“I have increasingly come to believe that, though perhaps not intentionally, they do so to the detriment of many other gay folk and queer folk and trans folk and folks who just do not — when you put yourself in the mind of a voter with an NPR mug and maybe even an equality sticker on the back of the Volvo — quite look the part,” Bacharach wrote.
With transgenders and gay people throughout the world undergoing so much real and imagined hardship, Bacharach is “suspicious of the neat schema of [Buttigieg’s] biographical tale.”
“The struggles of trans people, queer people of color, LGBTQ people who are rural, LGBTQ people who are poor, belie this neat onward-and-upward narrative, which is a story about a very particular kind of scrubbed, upwardly mobile, largely white, well-dressed, unutterably corny gay,” Bacharach wrote.
Bacharach is reminded by Buttigieg of his days as a college radical, when he railed against the LGBT movement becoming “another boring, bourgeois constituency of the vacuous center of American politics.” Buttigieg might be the establishment’s man to accomplish Bacharach’s college self’s worst nightmare.
“It is hard to escape the way that American capitalism and American democracy have worked in tandem both to dissipate and to assimilate the radical democratic energies of queer liberation by giving a very circumscribed sort of gay a conditional membership to the club,” Bacharach argued.
While the idea of Buttigieg not being gay enough to be President is laughable, there may be a grain of truth in Bacharach’s lament.
Buttigieg’s assumed palatability with middle America has made him an immediate favorite of the fake news. With the corporate establishment firmly in his corner, it is hard to imagine Buttigieg advancing anything but the globalist status quo if he somehow obtains the presidency.

‘Never Trump’ Republican Group Led by George Conway Endorses Joe Biden for President
They want to hand the country back to the Democrats.
The “Lincoln Project,” a group set up by George Conway and other Never Trumpers, has officially endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for President.
The group made a statement on Wednesday that they are “committed to ensuring that Joe Biden is sworn in on January 20, 2021.”
“Joe Biden has the experience — in politics, in government and in life — to lead the United States out of our current crisis,” Lincoln Project co-founder Reed Galen said in a statement.
“As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady our ship of state, bind up our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a national leader,” he added.
Conway, who is married to White House counselor Kelly Anne Conway, revealed that he gave the maximum donation to Biden in a Twitter post last month.

The group released a demeaning video campaign making fun of evangelical Christians for supporting Trump in January.
“If this is the best American Christians can do, then God help us all,” the advertisement stated.
Big League Politics reported on the genesis of the Lincoln Project, which was founded last year to undermine the President and grift off of individuals with Trump Derangement Syndrome:
George Conway, husband of White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway, has announced a project that aims to sabotage President Trump’s chances at re-election in 2020, and give the country back to the Democrats.
Conway is allying with anti-Trump GOP operatives such as Steve Schmidt, John Weaver and Rick Wilson on “The Lincoln Project.” They made the announcement of their sabotage campaign against the President in a joint op/ed published by the New York Times…
To these individuals with severe Trump derangement syndrome, it is patriotic to elect Democrats who openly pine to eviscerate the Bill of Rights toward their end goal of totalitarian socialism…
Regardless of his motives, Conway has emerged as one of the most classless individuals in modern politics. This grotesque figure is a living reminder that the Washington D.C. swamp enables the worst of the worst to thrive.
These Never Trumpers have been forced out of the Republican Party and are clinging to relevance in the hopes of giving the country back to the Democrats. If Trump defeats Biden and wins re-election in November, these modern-day Benedict Arnolds can be ushered into the dustbin of history once and for all.
