Pete Buttigieg Caught in "I Ride a Bike" Scam

Pete Buttigieg

Don't forget, Leninists have no problem with lying and deceit on a big scale or small scale.

And especially don't forget the Biden administration is filled in top positions with children of Marxist-Leninists. 

The father of Kamala Harris is Donald Harris, a hardcore Marxist.

Transportation Secretary Buttigieg's father Joseph, who was a professor at Notre Dame, co-translated and co-edited the three-volume English edition of Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks. He also was a founding member and president of the International Gramsci Society.

Who was Gramsci?

Louis Althusser wrote:
Who has really attempted to follow up the explorations of Marx and Engels? I can think of only Gramsci.
From Roger Scruton in Fools, Frauds and Firebrands: Thinkers of the New Left :
[Gramsci] could never have foreseen that a generation of students would one day be taught to see him in the same light and with the same uncritical adulation that they were taught to see Trotsky, Mao, Castro and Che Guevara: as leader, teacher and hero of a worldwide revolutionary movement.
And the intolerance displayed by modern-day Lefties comes right out of the Gramsci framework.

Scruton again:
Thus to the realist to ask how, in this society of the future, conflicts are to be accommodated or resolved, Gramsci has no reply. The communist shares with the fascists an overriding contempt for opposition. The purpose of politics is not to live with opposition, but to remove it - to achieve the condition in which opposition no longer exists.
Pete's father was also an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory, "

And he was clearly in the movement to position the Marxist attack from a cultural perspective.

“Equity, environmental consciousness, and racial justice are surely some of the ingredients of a healthy Marxism. Indeed, Marxism's greatest appeal — undiminished by the collapse of Communist edifices — is the imbalances produced by other sociopolitical governing structures,” Joseph wrote in 1998, in an article for the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Paul Kengor, a professor at Grove City College and an expert in communism and progressivism, said Joseph was among a group of leftist professors who focused on injecting Marxism into the wider culture, reports The Washington Examiner.

"They’re part of a wider international community of Marxist theorists and academicians with a particular devotion to the writings of the late Italian Marxist theorist Antonio Gramsci, who died over 80 years ago. Gramsci was all about applying Marxist theory to culture and cultural institutions — what is often referred to as a 'long march through the institutions,' such as film, media, and especially education," Kengor told the Examiner. 



  1. Imagine how small you have to be inside, how insecure and pathetic your self esteem must be in order to pull of a stunt like this?

    We all have trouble accepting the world as it is. Those of us who have the most trouble go into politics. Political focus is completely outward. What will the voters think? The media? My allies? My rivals? My benefactors?

    Never do they look inward. And that's how stunts like this happen. Had Butthead looked inward, for even a second, he would have said to himself, "I don't need to trick anyone in order to help them."

  2. Why are the security dudes wearing masks? They'll take a bullet for this guy, but they're worried about a seasonal virus?

    1. Note that the gray haired fat guy who gave the "thumbs up" for Pete to pedal off....... no mask.

    2. Who knows where Pete has been? I'm sure his lifestyle choices put him in high risk categories for all sorts of communicable diseases. They'd be smart to wear gloves as well.

  3. Does anyone even like this guy? I mean he was supposed to be the up and Comer that was gonna give the establishment a run for their money. Some commentators even said he could be the next Obama. However, it's become clearly obvious that Buttigieg is an empty suit who is just good at making meandering platitudes about how he is morally superior to his opponents.

    I mean everytime he hasn't run for mayor in a left wing city he's gotten absolutely shellacked. I suppose him working in the Biden administration is a way to win the good graces of black Democratic primary voters as he had no support among them. Without that his prospects for any elected office-whether it be in the legislative or executive branch-is dead in the water. I think we are just looking at a media created perennial loser who isn't going to have much influence in elected politics. Though he might be appointed in other Democratic administration's.

  4. I was genuinely surprised that his bike had a seat on it.
