"Queers Against Pete" Disrupt Buttigieg Fundraiser in Chicago

“Queers Against Pete” Disrupt Buttigieg Fundraiser in Chicago – VIDEO

During a fundraiser of more than 300 people at the Standard Club in Chicago on Saturday, Pete Buttigieg, the first openly gay man running for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, was interrupted by two self described non-binary “Queers Against Pete” demonstrators.

One of protesters asked Buttigieg, how a “transgender, queer, or nonbinary teen who is disowned by their wealthy, homophobic parents and therefore cannot afford college” can further their education “because you oppose universal free public education and the majority of voters do?”

“I have great news for you: That person will get free college under my plan because what we are doing is basing it on somebody’s ability to pay. Now, if you are in the top 10% by income, I am going to have to ask you to pay your own tuition,” Buttigieg replied to the protestor who ignored the answer.

A second demonstrator then jumped in confronting the mayor and rambling on for about three minutes on his record with the black community and criminal justice issues.

“I need you to respect me, and respect my question, and respect the people of South Bend! You’re saying solidarity, you’re saying rules of the road, and you’re not following them yourself. You don’t love me; you won’t let me ask my question,” shouted the protester, who also identified as “queer and nonbinary.”

Buttigieg replied: “I respect your activism, but sometimes love is not expressed by interruption. Sometimes love is expressed in a different way.”

The protester remained shouting which prompted a campaign donor to yell, “You’re not the only one in the room!” After the disruption continued Buttigieg finally relented, “You know what? Just go ahead. Let’s do this.”

The protester, who identified as queer and nonbinary but did not give a name, brought up the South Bend police shooting death last summer of a black robbery suspect, Eric Logan.

“Mayor Pete, as somebody who says you want to unify communities, as someone who says they want to follow the rules of the road, there are police officers in South Bend who kill people. What’s his name Logan …” the protester said.

“Not what’s his name.” Buttigieg said. “His name is Eric Logan.”

“There’s so many, I can’t keep track anymore,” the protester shot back trying to cover-up their mistake.

“That’s false,” Buttigieg replied.

 “How can we trust you will show up for queer and trans people and people of color when there were eight community meetings in South Bend about a police officer who killed someone in your community and you did not go to them?”

Buttigieg replied by noting he set up the series of community meetings with “rank-and-file officers to elected leaders to some of my harshest critics, and people who have been in my administration all along” to “empower the community” to help come up with solutions for better policing in South Bend.

“We wanted the conversations to be real. We wanted them to lead to actual change that could be implemented,” Buttigieg said. “In order for that to happen, we had to have conversations that got out of the circus and into the heart. And so those conversations, I knew, would be at their best when they were as far away as possible from presidential politics.”

“I’m not standing up here, as I hope to earn your vote, saying that I have earned it by getting everything perfect, that racism, poverty, homelessness and exclusion have come to an end in my city during my time as mayor any more than they’ve come to an end anywhere,” Buttigieg told the protester. “But we have made so much progress.”

The two protestors not caring what Buttigieg answered kept chanting and screaming “Queers Against Pete” over and over as the event ended.

Donner Tea Party Your Table Is Ready! – Tea Party Starts #FireBoehner Campaign

Brietbart, the Daily Caller and other Tea Party organizations including American Majority Action are incensed over that the fact that the GOP dominated House has removed some its most hard-right members from key congressional committees, and are now backing a campaign to get rid of House Speaker John Boehner once and for all.

American Majority Action (AMA) is launching a #FireBoehner campaign. If 16 members of the Republican Party abstain from voting for Boehner as speaker in January, he will be one vote shy of the 218 necessary to confirm his speakership. “Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives,” said Ned Ryun, president and CEO of AMA. “Boehner has never won a negation [sic] battle with the White House or Senate — and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the conservative movement. It’s time for him to go.”

Ahhhh I love the smell of right-wing GOP/Tea Party cannibalism in the morning.


World Net Daily Attacks Focus On the Family For Being Too “Wimpy” On the Gays

Joseph Farah founder of Wingnut World Net Daily continued the new anti-gay infighting meme today blatantly attacking longtime anti-gay hate group Focus On The Family, saying that they helped the GOP fail because they don’t hate gays enough.

I could go on and on with reasons Christians are losing the culture. In fact, I would have to say they’ve already completely lost it. Abandoned it would be more accurate. Into this sad state of affairs comes the “refocused” Focus on the Family, a truly great Christian ministry founded by a truly great man, Dr. James Dobson. But like many great cultural institutions founded by great Christian men – Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, the New York Times, yes, even the United States of America – it lost the Christian vision and passion of the founders. What am I talking about? I’m talking about the new non-confrontational, wimpy, smiley-faced, lukewarm Focus on the Family as personified by its new leader, Jim Daly, who seems all-too eager to distance himself and the organization he now heads from the legacy of Dobson. Daly’s answer is to find common ground with people who understand they are indeed in a culture war – those, for instance, who promote same-sex marriage and advocate unrestricted abortion. We’ve got to be more “ecumenical,” to “win over friends, not make more enemies.” That’s how fast Christians lose cultural institutions”

Yes!  And the fight for the diminished wingnut funding and placing the blame continues!

This is almost as much fun as  black Pastor in Washington State Ken Hutchenson calling NOM racist.

Keep it up guys.  We’ve got the popcorn popping and we’re loving this show!

Fuck the Lions.  Throwing “Christians” to “Christians” is so much more entertaining
