Angry Pete Buttigieg Is A Total Hypocrite

Pete Buttigieg is a load of crap. He said that he doesn't support Chick-A-Fil because they're anti-LGBT but he likes their food. Total hypocrite he is. He lost my vote.

Default Re: Pete Buttigieg Is A Total Hypocrite

I mean, yeah, that's the sound bite everyone's taking away from it, but he was actually talking about his concern with the left's purity and outrage cultures and how he chooses not to participate in boycotts because he they're inconsistent and give people too much leeway to feel virtuous without actually doing anything useful about the issues. Obviously, you have the right to be mad at him; I just want to offer a deeper context for what he meant when he said that.

I hear what you're saying, Windsmith bat Gaia. Can you say for certain you can interpret his meaning though?

I mean, I can only go by his words and my understanding of them. I can't say with absolute certainty what the intention behind them was. And neither can you, and neither can Bartmanhomer.
