Happy Hour News Briefs
The aw-shucks mayor from the Midwest, Pete Buttigieg, is being praised – sort of – for downplaying his Marxist-worshipping father.
“He’s deceptive. He’s low key,” AFR talk show host Sandy Rios says of the young presidential candidate. “He seems like an aw-shucks, very-nice guy. At the same time, he’s a committed leftist.”
According to Rios, however, Buttigieg deserves to be grilled about his personal views of capitalism and communism since his father, Professor Joseph Buttigieg, was a committed Marxist while teaching literature at the University of Notre Dame.
Professor Buttigieg’s commitment to Marxism makes the son a “red diaper baby,” Rios says, which is a child raised by communist parents, such as Barack Obama and Bill Ayers, and communist-turned-conservative David Horowitz.
“Pete was raised, and kind of teethed, on communist socialist teaching,” Rios warns. “And he’s very, very smooth, and he’s very, very young, and he hides his policies with his smile and his kind demeanor.”
I would be very excited to learn that boring, overtly pious Mayo Pete was anything other than Alex P. Keaton. But he’s exactly who he seems to be.
