Buttigieg Calls for Slavery Reparations, Green New Deal, Abolishing Electoral College

If anyone deserves reparations, it's South Bend voters. All 8,500 or so who voted for Mayor Buttigieg.

There was a time when Buttigieg appeared to have outmanuevered the rest of the clown car by taking a somewhat more moderate approach. But then his numbers began to fade and he's adopting the same radical leftist positions as the rest of the radical clown car.

Buttigieg instead supports "Medicare for All Who Want It," to convert Medicare into a public option...

 Front and center is a proposal to "create a commission to propose reparations policies for Black Americans."...

...the first item on his security list is not enhancing America's military preparedness. Rather, it is passing a Green New Deal,

 In addition, Buttigieg would also create a "nationwide gun licensing system," one of three candidates to propose federal tracking of gun owners.

Other proposals in the "security" section include legalizing marijuana, abolishing the death penalty, and raising the minimum wage to $15.

Lastly comes Buttigieg's suite of overhauls to American democracy. Front and center is abolishing the Electoral College, which handed President Donald Trump the White House in 2016. However, recognizing that the EC will not be abolished "overnight," Buttigieg also supports the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact to convert it into a de facto national vote. Additionally, Buttigieg is refloating his Supreme Court packing plan, which even left-leaning Slate acknowledged is unconstitutional.

Oh, and also getting rid of Thomas Jefferson.

Pete Buttigieg, who is running in a crowded Democratic field for president, said on Friday he believes renaming events and things named after President Thomas Jefferson is the "right thing to do."

If you're getting rid of medicine, cows and planes, not to mention the constitution, you might as well get rid of Jefferson too.
