Buttigieg Praised Sanders Socialism

Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor now running as a gay Democrat presidential candidate in 2020, previously praised Sen. Bernie Sanders’ bravery for using the controversial term “socialist” to describe himself in an award winning essay.

As a high school student in 2000, Buttigieg won the Profile in Courage Essay Contest for his essay praising Sanders for labeling himself a socialist.

In the essay, Buttigieg laments the politically correct standards of both political parties at the time, writing that “Candidates have discovered that is easier to be elected by not offending anyone rather than by impressing the voters,” describing politicians from both parties as “rushing for the center, careful not to stick their necks out on issues.”

Buttigieg contrasted politicians he considered centrist, like President George W. Bush, with Sanders.

“Sanders’ courage is evident in the first word he uses to describe himself: ‘Socialist’,” wrote Buttigieg, adding “Even though he has lived through a time in which an admitted socialist could not act in a film, let alone hold a Congressional seat, Sanders is not afraid to be candid about his political persuasion.”

He went on, gushing over Sanders throughout the 8 paragraph essay.

“His energy, candor, conviction, and ability to bring people together stand against the current of opportunism, moral compromise, and partisanship which runs rampant on the American political scene,” wrote Buttigieg.

In the concluding paragraph, Buttigieg credited Sanders with inspiring him to devote his life to politics.

“Above all, I commend Bernie Sanders for giving me an answer to those who say American young people see politics as a cesspool of corruption, beyond redemption,” he wrote.

Notably absent from Buttigieg’s glowing admiration of Sanders was any mention of “Democratic Socialism”, which seems to be a qualifier Sanders only created in the last several years as he prepared for his presidential runs.

It is unknown why Buttigieg himself would run for president, as his apparent political hero had already entered the fray by the time Buttigieg himself decided to run.

Joe Rogan Takes Joe Biden To Task: “Trump Will Eat Him Alive”

“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking.”

Joe Rogan took presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to task on his podcast Friday, calling out Democrats for refusing to admit that Biden appears to be cognitively challenged and lacking mental acuity.

Biden expressed exasperation with leading Democrats for refusing to consider that the 77-year old former Vice President might not be at his mental prime.

You have to be able to call out s*** that’s wrong on your side. That’s the problem the Democratic Party is having right now with that Joe Biden guy. You guys have to be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else sees it, and Trump is going to eat him alive.

Rogan had earlier pointed to Biden’s tendency towards serial gaffes as a disqualifier for the presidency, expressing his view that Biden’s cognitive decline was obvious and visible.

He stumbles through s***, he forgets what he’s talking about… The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking.”

Joe Biden has claimed that he’s running for the Senate instead of the presidency, confused his wife with his sister during a Super Tuesday victory speech, and stated that 150 million Americans have died of gun violence in the past two decades.

Watch the candid segment of the Joe Rogan Experience here:

Ironically, while Rogan’s primary audience appears to be younger conservative men, the longtime MMA announcer leans to the left of the political spectrum and endorsed Bernie Sanders last year.

Establishment Democrats have sought to shut down discussion of Biden’s mental state, likening serious questions as to the prospect of the former Vice President’s potential cognitive decline to be “disinformation campaigns.”

Should they prove unable to simply silence questions as to the party elder’s acuity, they’ll have no one to blame but themselves.
