Adapted from the latest Radio Derb, available exclusively on

Three weeks ago I passed some noncommittal remarks about Democratic Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, the 37-year-old Mayor of South Bend, Indiana. That was by way of arguing that from the point of view of the Democratic Party, an ideal candidate would be a non-crazy, unthreatening person with just a smidgen of diversity to bring out the SJW voters.

Buttigieg, I argued, fills the bill because he’s homosexual—that’s the smidgen of diversity—but otherwise comes across as a regular guy. He doesn’t want to persecute Christian bakers or boycott fast-food outlets.

Since then, Beto O’Rourke’s star has faded as people have noticed his weirdness and hyperbolic vocabulary. For just the reasons I spoke about—non-crazy, unthreatening, smidgen of diversity—Mayor Buttigieg has filled the void, now that we’ve all figured out how to pronounce his name.

So I’ve been taking a closer look at Mayor Buttigieg. From what I can gather about his positions on the National Question, there’s no way I could vote for him, unless the Republicans were to dump Donald Trump and nominate Jeff Flake. I’m just trying to figure whether Buttigieg would be a plausible Democratic candidate next year.

My inquiries started out in negative territory—I mean, with a disposition to think he’s not a serious candidate.

There’s that name, for example. No, not the surname: Nobody can help his surname, and I’m guessing Buttigieg had stopped being bothered about jokes directed at his surname by the time he got to First Grade, at the latest.

No, it’s not the “Buttigieg,” it’s the “Pete” that irks me. Having lived through the Jimmy Carter Presidency I am inoculated for life against Presidents who want to be referred to by a juvenile diminutive. If the U.S.A. were ever to elect a President who called himself Timmy, I swear I would renounce my citizenship.

Plus, I can never quite get out of my mind the old English schoolyard joke.

Q: What do you call an Irishman who’s been dead and buried for five hundred years?

A: Peat.

And then, still on the negative side, there was the business about Buttigieg speaking seven languages. I was skeptical, I’ll admit. Linguistic prowess, like sexual prowess, is easy to boast of but much less easy to demonstrate to a skeptical public.

Certainly there are people with a talent for acquiring languages. The 19th-century English writer George Borrow was exceptional in that line. Ann Ridler’s careful, scholarly study of Borrow’s language skills concludes that he had reading competence in 51 languages and speaking competence in 20. It happens. And yes, that sound you hear is my teeth grinding: I’m hopeless at languages myself, so I come at this topic freighted with envy.

Where the boasts of politicians are concerned, however, skepticism is always in order. Buttigieg added an extra layer of skepticism by claiming to have learned Norwegian so he could read a particular writer of that language in the original.

When I first read that I thought: Wait a minute … Didn’t James Joyce learn Norwegian so he could read Ibsen? Yes he did. Had Buttigieg read that fact somewhere and just … appropriated it? I was suspicious.

Too suspicious, at least where Norwegian was concerned. The Washington Post website has a video clip of Buttigieg answering questions in Norwegian.

He doesn’t sound too sure of himself in the language; but he understands the questions and gives some kind of answers, and the Norwegians seem happy.

That raised my estimation of the guy somewhat. But then I read Daniel Greenfield’s April 9th takedown of Buttigieg and his city. South Bend, says Greenfield, is a public-sector plantation—a typical “empty sandwich” Democratic city with a big violent black and Hispanic underclass, a white lefty elite class, and nothing much in between.

But didn’t Buttigieg win re-election as mayor with eighty percent of the vote? Yes he did. What the media doesn’t tell you is the actual numbers who voted for him: eight and a half thousand in a city of a hundred thousand.

In other words, South Bend got Buttigieg the way New York City got de Blasio: by hardly anyone bothering to vote, other than public-sector union members and professors of Gender Studies. Meanwhile the homicide rate is worse than Chicago’s.

Edited quote from Daniel Greenfield:

South Bend is a human tragedy. And while Buttigieg isn’t solely responsible for [its] woes, he has exploited it, instead of trying to fix it, using buzzwords and gimmicks to build a national brand …

Mayor Buttigieg is betting that the national media won’t bother looking at South Bend.

So far he’s been proven right.

Appropriate for Good Friday, and Passover, the story of Pete—dammit, Peter—Buttigieg’s rise has a religious sidebar.

He’s been mayor of South Bend since January 2012. That means that his mayoral terms have completely embraced Michael Pence’s four-year governorship of Indiana, the state in which South Bend sits…or festers. Pence has of course been Donald Trump’s Vice President since 2017.

Mayor Buttigieg and ex-Governor Pence are both devout Christians: the mayor an Episcopalian, the Vice President an evangelical. Buttigieg is a homosexual who is married to another guy; Pence is a biblical literalist who believes homosexual intercourse is against the law of God.

Hence the following, from an interview Buttigieg granted to CNN this week:

Clip: The Vice President is entitled to his religious beliefs. My problem is when those religious beliefs are used as an excuse to harm other people.

That was a huge issue for us in Indiana when he advanced [and then retreated from] a discriminatory bill in 2015 under the guise of religious freedom that said it was lawful to discriminate provided you invoke religion as your excuse. And I just believe that’s wrong.

This isn’t about him as a human being. This is about policies that hurt people—policies that hurt children.


And to this day, if you listen closely to what he says, you’ll notice that to this day he has not brought himself to say that it shouldn’t be legal to discriminate against people in this country because they’re LGBT. In most parts of this country you can still be fired, denied housing, denied services because of who you are. He seems to be OK with that. I would love to see him evolve on that issue.

I found that objectionable in several different ways. Speaking as a Freedom Of Association absolutist, I’m fine with discrimination. If you want to fire me, or don’t want to hire me, or don’t want to serve me, or rent a room to me, because I’m white, or male, or heterosexual, or have a British accent, or am too old or too conservative, I’m fine with it. I’ll go elsewhere.

Laws against discrimination are a money pot for the shyster attorneys who promote them, and who finance the politicians that pass them; for the rest of us, they are an insult and a nuisance.

And then there’s that prissy millennial usage “LGBT.” If pressed on the matter, I might allow that there’s a hole in our language here. We need some clear, short way to say “sexually eccentric,” now that “freak” has gone out of fashion. No, I don’t want to bring back “freak”; that would be more trouble than it’s worth. I just think we need a plain word, preferably just one syllable, in place of that pretentiously managerial Human-Resources-Department-speranto “LGBT.”

And then there’s the appeal to snowflakery: “Policies that hurt people—policies that hurt children.”

Mr Mayor: If I whack you upside the head with a loaded pool cue, I will have hurt you, and the law supplies you with remedies. If I sign a bill to prevent homosexual scout masters from taking young boys on camping trips in the woods, I haven’t hurt anybody. Where the children are concerned, much more likely the contrary—I have saved them from hurt.

What I mostly dislike about that clip, though, is the glimpse it gives us of the iron fist inside the CultMarx velvet glove. The mayor tells us that he would love to see the Vice President, quote, “evolve” on the issue of discriminating against sexually eccentric people. “Evolve”—to a higher form of life, you see? To get on the right side of history! Our side! Or else …

Whether Mayor Buttigieg is on the right side of history, history itself will reveal in the fulness of time. There is no doubt he’s on the right side of the zeitgeist, though—the side where all the goodthinkful people stand, the side where all the media talking heads, college administrators, schoolmarms, social-network CEOs, and Human Resources Managers stand.

In this little engagement with the Vice President, Buttigieg is punching down. Behind that engaging boyish smile, if you watch closely, you can glimpse the sneer of cold contempt, the arrogance of power.

And what about the homosexuality thing? Is that likely to help Buttigieg in a general election, or hurt him?

That’s hard to call. I hear that Democratic strategists are worried that a homosexual candidate might lose them black votes; and of course it would be interesting to hear what our Moslem congressgals think about it.

Public attitudes have liberalized a lot this past twenty years. Still, on the poll numbers I’ve looked at, they haven’t liberalized as much as I’d have guessed, or as Social Justice Warriors would have wished. There is still a big block of Americans who are negative on the issue.

For how many, though, is it a deal-breaker? That’s the thing it’s really hard to know. Polls tend to emphasize the binary aspect, for-against, and forget all the shades of intermediate opinion people have: mild disapproval, grudging acceptance, not-much-bothered-either-way.

Speaking for myself, I’m wary of admitting homosexuals to positions of power. They have a way of taking over and corrupting institutions they are let into: The courts of at least two English kings illustrate the problem. So, come to think of it, does Mayor Buttigieg’s church, the Episcopal Church, which is now pretty much just a dating club for homosexuals.

That said, however, there are issues of salience. To borrow a figure of speech from Lady Ann: If we had a homosexual President who got Congress to pass real patriotic immigration reform—an Israeli-style border fence, compulsory E-verify, visa tracking, moratoriums on legal immigration and refugee resettlement—if we had that guy as Chief Executive, I wouldn’t care if he let himself be buggered on the White House lawn in broad daylight.

    There are homo nationalists, but those homos who make a big deal of their homo-hood aren’t likely to be nationalists. After all, just like a Jew who is Jew-first will identify with Jews around the world than with any particular goy nation, a homo who is homo-first will identify with homos around the world than with straights of his own nation/race.

    Generally, homo-nationalists tend to keep their sexual thing to themselves. Greg Johnson remains in the closet because he sees it as a personal thing. Politically, he sides with nation and race.

    Maybe they should call South Bend ‘South Bend-over’.

    So, the town of Notre Dame University elects a homo fecal penetrator who says god blessed him with lust for sodomy.

    Jews totally own Christians. Jews promoted homomania to replace Christianity with Queertianity, and it looks like they succeeded. These christ-cucks are so pathetic.

    It’s starting to annoy me how people keep saying this homosexual mayor is a “devout Christian”. It is impossible to be a practicing homosexual and a Christian of any sort, let alone a “devout” one. The New Testament expressly prohibits homosexuality, as does the Old. There’s absolutely nothing wishy-washy about it. The media can push it all they want, they’re not fooling actual Christians, or even clear thinking non-religious folk.

    There is absolutely no chance I would ever vote for a homosexual, even if he appeared to agree with me on every single issue. I believe, as did everyone else until yesterday, that homosexuals are deviants with serious psychological issues.

    There are two kinds of white people.

    1. Those who are mentally colonized by Jewish supremacists.

    2. Those who are mentally liberated from Jewish supremacists.

    Jewish power controls media, entertainment, and academia, and it promoted homomania as the new holy. White people are glued to junk on TV, and PC undermined critical thought and skepticism. So, whites just grow up sucking in the PC ideology and ‘idology’.
    Since their minds are colonized by Jewish media/academia, they believe homo is holy.
    If homo is holy, then it must be next to godliness. So, god must bless homos.

    This is how white people ‘think’. Of course, they don’t. It’s more like ‘shink’ or shill-think.

    A openly homosexual president is probably a bridge too far at this time. Maybe in another generation. Hopefully America will undergo another Great Awakening before that happens. Imagine, white women will have children. Abortions frowned upon. Homosexuality back in the closet (I hope the old pastime of stomping queers does not return). Metrosexuals will also jam into the closet. Everyone armed. Governments curtailed and cops fear the citizens.

  8. His Norwegian was understandable,, i have heard worse from muricans actually living here tbh.
    other than that my opinion of him is the same as of other politicians, iow lying puss filled scumbags that should be avoided.

  10. “If the U.S.A. were ever to elect a President who called himself Timmy, I swear I would renounce my citizenship.” Trump likes to nickname people. I will nickname Trump Timmy. Everyone has to start calling Trump Timmy. Derbyshire will then be leaving the USA!!!

    You outdid yourself again Derbyshire. You don’t like homos, but you’ll vote for one if he’s good on immigration. Homos would never do this. Males like variety in their partners so foreign males are a plus for them.

    Again, you cannot think logically because of your Chinese family. Here is another one of your insane blogs from VDare:

    In it you mention a EuroSinoNippon alliance. The Japanese hate the Chinese because the Chinese are inferior to them. Which country is better – China or Japan? Japan will never form an alliance with China.

    You cannot comment rationally on the immigration because you caused a problem in the USA with your Chinese family.

  11. SafeNow says:

    Mayor Pete is smart, but Jimmy Carter might well have been the smartest President, in the college board sense. There is a big disconnect between smart/articulate, and having good judgment. During the Camelot years, “the best and the brightest” pursued the insane Vietnam war. Here in California where I live, we are filled with highly intelligent people who regularly do obviously preposterous things.

    I bet Herbert Hoover, a real engineer, was more intelligent than Jimmah. Mr. Carter had been in the nuclear Navy, but whatever term they gave him did not make him an engineer. I’ll give President Carter one piece of praise, at least. I believe he was the most honest man to be President since possibly well before Ike, Truman, and before that, I couldn’t tell you.

  20. I just think we need a plain word, preferably just one syllable, in place of that pretentiously managerial Human-Resources-Department-speranto “LGBT.”

    I’m pretty weak on biblical history and religious prohibitions, but I was not aware that Christ spoke of, or rendered a specific opinion about, homosexuality. Did he?

    It is undeniably true that the Old Testament (Torah) denounces and forbids homosexuality, but I thought that all the Christian bible-thumpers out there picked up the ‘God-given’ against decree against homosexuality exclusively from the Old Testament.

    True or false?

    In any event, it is remarkable that today’s conservative Christians (and never Orthodox Jews) are openly mocked, derided and held accountable by the LGBTQ establishment for their ‘homophobia’–even though it’s the Jews who are the originators of this lingering ‘prejudice’.

    Once again, Jews receive special deference (if not an outright exemption) for attitudes and conduct that, when found in others, is condemned as ‘discriminatory’.

But unlike the stuffy UK, ‘diminutives’ are a favored American tradition, a republican touch in a land with no ‘Lords & Ladies’. A practice worth preserving. Jimmy Carter is a sight better than James Earl Carter. Mitt’s a cute juvenile name that unfortunately is probably the only thing appealing about Romney. Pete Wilson was once considered to be a viable Republican presidential candidate. Nicknames are easier to say & more amiable. Beto is especially cute so let’s hope he stays in the race. ‘Weirdness’ should never disqualify anyone.
    But homosexuality should disqualify, that’s beyond weird; that’s downright nasty. Anyone believing that there could ever be any trade-off’s that would allow such degeneracy on the White House lawn, of all places, should be stripped of their citizenship & deported to Brunei.

  25. “Evolve”—to a higher form of life, you see?

    Evolution doesn’t have a direction. To evolve is simply to change gradually. It’s an absurd human pretense (especially common among the I FUCKIN’ LOVE SCIENCE! crowd) to believe that since we’re the Johnny Come Latelys in terms of life on this planet, we’re the “goal” of evolution, its permanent peak. But ask yourself who’s really a greater evolutionary success: humans, who survive mostly by changing and eventually destroying every environment they invade, or the horseshoe crab, which has survived, virtually unchanged, for 450 million years?

  26. “…if we had that guy as Chief Executive, I wouldn’t care if he let himself be…”

    What if in return for getting that, it required not just tolerance, but celebration, or even to prove your bona fides, participation? Just like belonging to any gang, would they trust you otherwise? The events emerging in the Roman Catholic hierarchy persuade no.

    Didn’t that famous feminist, in regards to Bill Clinton having delivered what she wanted on abortion, say she’d get down on her knees and reward the satyr President with a blow job? Isn’t it the same calculation?

    We have a means and end problem here, with the end likely to reflect the means.

    I’m no biblical scholar either, but I do know that Jesus said specifically that “A man shall leave his father and cling to his wife…” a specific reference to the marriage of one man and one woman. I’m not really sure why people play games trying to pretend not knowing that Christianity was opposed to homosexuality and sex outside of marriage from day one. St Paul clearly condemns homosexuality several times, Romans 1:21-27, Corinthians 6:9-10, Timothy 1:9-10. And even without religion, we know that homosexuality is a disgusting act, the rectum is obviously not a sex organ. Please, let’s not play pretend.

  29. @swamped

    Now that you bring it up, Swamped, I see that I am in complete agreement with you on the “diminutive” form of names. It is indeed an American thing, and a good thing, to have disdain for all the fancy titles and names that show one’s aristocracy, or purport to, vs. the simple “Jimmy” Carter. I also liked that part about the man*.

    I put “diminutive” in quotes like that, as I don’t even think “Pete” really is a diminutive. I’ve known 5% of Peters that were called “Petey” which IS the diminutive. “Pete” is just short for “Peter”, like “Cathy” for “Catherine”, “Beth” for “Elizabeth”, “Joe” for Joseph, and on-an-on.

    No, trust me, for this candidate, the last name is one I’d have the problem with, mainly because of what else we know about him. I don’t know how I could keep a straight (get it?) face in a debate with Mr. Butt-something. (Can someone please write out the phonetics? I don’t watch TV, so I truly don’t know how it’s pronounced.)


    * Though I have much more respect for him as a leader, including as commander-in-chief over the winning of the Cold War, with all his regrets accepted over his signing the disastrous ’86 Amnesty bill, Mr. Reagan had a different type of humility than that of Mr. Carter. He was more into the pompetous (haha, it must be a word, it’s in a Steve Miller song) of the office of US President.

    Let me put it this way: Ronald Reagan Airport (DCA) is the busy national airport 3 miles from the heart of darkness Washington, FS. It has a control tower and is underneath/inside the very busy Potomac Approach airspace. Jimmy Carter Airport is in Americus, Georgia, a town of 17,000 people, is an uncontrolled field (like 90% of US airports), and you can indeed pull the plane off onto the taxiway to let your brother go take a piss in the weeks, if he had too many Billy Beers on the way down. A plane might land 5 times a day, other than practice tough-and-goes.

  31. For what it’s worth in 1923 reichsmarks, I agree with Mr. Derbyshire’s recommendations regarding immigration. But what does he propose in regard to the very large Latin American population born in the US or otherwise permanent? Jared Taylor and Paul Kersey of American Renaissance have stated clearly that they are against assimilation. It seems to me that Mr. Derbyshire, as a leader of anti-immigrant politics, owes the country an answer to this question.

    Well, maybe things will begin to change when people like Ann Coulter stop noticing that Israel can have a wall whereas the US can’t and start noticing that the US can’t have a wall just like Palestinians in the West Bank can’t. Just like West Bank Palestinians will be arrested for resisting the Jewish-Zionist Caravan, white Americans will be arrested for resisting the Brown Caravan.

    What do West Bank Palestinians and White Americans have in common? They are both under imperial-colonization of the Empire of Judea. Things will begin to change for White America ONLY WHEN whites begin to realize that Jews see them as merely More Palestinians. If Jews treat Palestinians like garbage, why would they treat your people any better?

    China and Israel have one thing in common in that both are experiencing Core Expansion. Core Han population expands into Tibet and Xinjiang(aka Uighur land) and Israel Jews expand into West Bank.
    Anglos used to be like that too, moving into Western and Southwestern territories. But today, Anglos are experiencing Core Implosion. The core population recedes and fades while being replaced by new people. In Canada, Anglos are under Jewish command who call for more Diversity, and Han Chinese are taking advantage of this to take over real estate in certain key cities.

    Not one US political puppet is in any shape or form electable, granted you’d even have elections. you got a selection of corrupt puppets who all have a skeleton in the closet, that can be pulled out if the selected puppet does not toe the line expected from him.

    And seriously, what criteria is this? “Oh, the guy answered some Norwegians in Norwegian, makes me consider him eventually”. Don’t you care what these puppets actually stand for in terms of policy, eg shutting down the criminal FED or so?
    The US are totally insane, preoccupied with bread and circuses on a frightening low level of being.

    You can “elect” whoever you want, this puppet will just be an expression of the sorry, degenerate state you are in.
    It is time to finally start questioning your entire system democracy, it is a farce, restore your Republic before it is too late, let the US inc go bankrupt, which is what it is.

    ‘For what it’s worth in 1923 reichsmarks, I agree with Mr. Derbyshire’s recommendations regarding immigration. But what does he propose in regard to the very large Latin American population born in the US or otherwise permanent? ‘

    One has to be realistic and humane. It’s one thing to mistreat people already legally here; for one thing, they’ll object. It’s entirely practical, though, to bar any more from coming, and to make it impractical for anyone here illegally to find work.

  44. Derbyshire knows a lot about Chinese history, and I wonder if he noticed that Trumpism turned out to be like the Hundred Flowers Campaign.

    In the mid-50s, Mao goaded the Chinese people to speak freely. Don’t hold it in. Come out and say what’s on your minds. Let a hundred flowers bloom.
    After awhile, people began to speak freely and express their frustrations. But a lot of what they had to say went against Maoist dogma and the Mao cult.
    So, what began as ‘spring’ ended soon enough as winter. Worse, those who’d spoken freely and honesty were targeted and ruined, mostly by being sent to ‘re-education’ camps. Some were outright executed. The flowers were suddenly ‘weeds’ to destroy.

    We see the same thing with Trumpism. Because Trump acted so loud and brazen, many Americans thought the Overton window had shifted. Also, with Trump as president, surely white voices would be heard and protected. So, people who previously said little or nothing finally began to come together and speak their piece.

    But this just gave the Jews the opportunity to identity those individuals, target them, get them fired, get them deplatformed, get them ruined, and even sent to prison on trumped-up charges. (If Jews can sabotage the big fish president with bogus Russian collusion hoax, they can surely and easily destroy small fish.)
    And what did tough guy white man Trump do for people who followed his lead? NOTHING. He just twiddled his thumbs while Jews in media, academia, deep state, courts, and high-tech went about shutting down tons of his supporters.

    Why has a majority a right to impose themselves, usually to their own disadvantage?

    Trump emboldened white people to act bold and brazen, but when Jewish Power went after them, Trump not only did NOTHING but sucked up to Jewish Power while telling destroyed lives to be ‘good’. Trump is like someone who says, “It’s all safe and clear now. You can come out.” But when people come out of the bushes, they are mowed down by Jews while Trump does nothing. In effect, Trump has just been an informer, wittingly or not, of the Jewish Supremacist Inquisition.

    Jared Taylor and Paul Kersey of American Renaissance have stated clearly that they are against assimilation. It seems to me that Mr. Derbyshire, as a leader of anti-immigrant politics, owes the country an answer to this question.

    Fred, if immigration were cut off now, sorting and assimilation would proceed at their own natural pace. American society would settle down to its own steady state. Overt efforts towards assimilation would be unnecessary and counter productive. I don’t think that Taylor proposes anything other than just let people associate with whom they wish to, without the government forcing its hand on the matter.

    Outside of a few strictly controlled unions (operating engineers, sand hog laborers, iron workers on big projects) a young American man has no hope of a career/life in construction unless he becomes ruthless and exploitive in turn. He must become the one hiring the illegal scab labor. He must become ruthless, cold, hard, corrupt. And I blame the Republican party more than anybody for this state of affairs. Oh, how they conned us all back in 1986. Reagan claimed that he was going to bring illegal immigration under control, and finally the working laborer was going to get a break. Reagan did nothing to stem illegal invasion. Neither did George Bush, neither did his idiot son. We were conned, and yet most of us gave these scum our vote. Well, I’m not getting chumped anymore.

    a typical “empty sandwich” Democratic city with a big violent black and Hispanic underclass, a white lefty elite class, and nothing much in between.

    South Bend is a municipality within St. Joseph County, Indiana.

    1. The population of St. Joseph County is 13.6% black, almost precisely the national mean. About 38% of that population lives in the core city, South Bend, a proportion which is unremarkable for a Rustbelt city.

    2. StatsIndiana reports that there were 129,000 employed persons in St. Joseph County in 2017. The Census Bureau reports there were 211,000 people past their 16th birthday living there. The employment-to-population ratio (0.61) was almost precisely the national mean in 2017. St. Joseph County isn’t a collecting pool of dysfunctional people.

    3. St. Joseph County is, however, comparatively impecunious, with per capita income levels about 17% below national means. Wales has income levels about 30% below the British mean. Is it a stew of social pathology or a society of latifundiaries and peons?

    4. The per capita income levels in South Bend are about 18% below county-wide averages (not remarkable for a core city). That amounts to about 66% of national means.

    5. About 27% of South Bend’s population is black. South Bend’s blacks have income levels about 40% of national means while the remainder of South Bend’s population has income levels about 75% of national means. That translates into 49% and 92% of county-wide averages, respectively.

    6. Noting that St. Joseph County has income levels about 17% below national means. If you delineated a community which excluded about 11% of the working population in the most handsomely compensated professional-managerial employments, you’d have a population whose per capita income level was about 17% below national means. It’s a reasonable wager, though, that St. Joseph County has such people and may even have them in roughly normal proportions, but they’re receiving salaries which are under par for their profession (assessed on a national scale).

    7. Students of social strata may differ about how to define the lumpenproletarian population, but a common figure cited is 4% of the total population. Again, the coarse metrics do not indicate an abnormal share of the population of St. Joseph County is alienated from the workforce. If all the lumpenproletarians live in South Bend, that indicates an underclass population therein of roughly 10% of the total.

    8. Again, the income levels in South Bend as a whole are about 18% below county-wide means. That’s what you’d get if you excluded the 11% or 12% of the local population in the most handsomely compensated occupations.

    9. A population with income levels 51% of local means is what you’d expect if you were looking at one composed of low-skill tertiary sector wage-earners of the sort who populate the quintile of the labor force with the chintziest compensation.

    10. No clue how you’re using ‘elite’. I think a valid use would encompass people with influence and people with ample income producing assets and not much exceed about 2.5% of the population. Except for some glam suburbs, they’re not going to be all that numerous anywhere.

    No one has been a more erudite critic of Mayor Pete than his once neighbor in South Bend, E Michael Jones. Jones keeps warning about the homosexual agenda to all who will listen. If you think that the gay agenda is promoted now, just wait until Pete, publicly kissing his male husband, achieves the reigns of power. It will only encourage more and more teenage boys to give anal sex a try, especially as they discover that good girls, due to the globo-homo agenda, are harder and harder to find.

    All of the women candidates, (save Tulsi Gabbard – whom the deep state media despises for being anti-war), are showing themselves to be shrieking, hysterical incompetents.

    Really, the only candidate capable of uniting the diverse democrat factions may well be Pete. Who is left in that degenerate party to dare even question the gay agenda? Pete’s sexual orientation will only help him in his longshot bid for the nomination (Obama was originally a longshot too). But whether the country as a whole has become gay-friendly enough to elect an out of the closet homosexual remains to be seen. They said a black man couldn’t be elected either.

  84. A generally good article, except that it punts when addressing the primary issue of sodomy. Anyone such as Mayor Buttplug who insists on sodomy as the defining point of their identity is mentally ill, and should not be allowed to run for dogcatcher let alone President. Sodomy divorces sex from its purposeful intent, which is procreation. Then it deliberately eschews the inherent design of the human body. It forcefully attempts to substitute a perversion instead, specifically inserting things into the anus filled with excreta. It requires psychological conditioning to overcome the inherent disgust and revulsion that such an act normally entails, let alone somehow deriving a contrived sense of pleasure from it.

    Homosexuality is environmental conditioning predicated on a genetic quirk in the brain. It’s akin to a league of people born with strong upper bodies who decide to walk exclusively on their hands, and force everyone around them to cater to it. It requires judgment, discernment, and personal responsibility to overcome, in the same way that someone born with a cleft lip decides to correct it with surgery. Anyone who surrenders to it thereby submits to their handicap; then in this age of mindless pc victimology, it also forces the rest of us to submit with a rictus grin plastered on our faces. They don’t do it any better in the DPRK where everyone is forced to cry and fawn over Uncle Kim on pain of torture and death.

    When intent is deliberately ignored, when the pleasure of sex is deliberately and repeatedly divorced from procreation, when sexual pleasure is not only ignored but then forcibly perverted via sodomy, there are inevitable pernicious consequences to society. In making policy you can never do just one thing. There will always be unforeseen consequences. Where there is respect for tradition, then that brings wisdom that concomitant effects are taken into consideration. Unfortunately such effects are usually long term in making an appearance, so in this age of instant gratification political fools are never held responsible for the disastrous results of their own policies.

    E. Michael Jones sums it up very well:
    “So the mayor tells us, well the new trash trucks won’t fit down the alley. Well wait a minute, why did you buy them then if they’re not gonna fit down the alley? Because you don’t understand the design of your own neighborhood. Is this surprising, that you don’t know the purpose of the alley? No, because you think that the anus is a sex organ, don’t you Pete? That will impact your ability to deal with trash collection, won’t it? Because you don’t understand what design is, do you, no, you don’t.”

    South bend itself is a shithole kept afloat by the university, more or less. Thankfully, the area around the university is being gentrified fairly quickly.

    My friends and I regularly shit on mayor Pete for being a fag.

    I would guess that most of my professors were conservative/traditional, though it was hard to tell given that they would never tell us directly. Being in engineering likely skewed the proportion, as well.

    The school is still much more traditional than many of you would expect. Same-sex dorms are still in place, parietals (no opposite-sex individuals in dorm rooms after midnight/ 2 AM on weekends), most students attend mass on Sundays, etc.

    It has changed in that the school’s demographics have shifted from a mix of blue/white-collar families toward more wholly white-collar, but I suppose that is to be expected of a good school over time. Early students are successful, send their kids to the school, and so on. Regardless, almost everyone I knew there was kind, intelligent, thoughtful and humble. I knew of maybe one or two people who made their family’s wealth a focal point of their social life.

    There are those in the administration that would like to change the nature of the school, but I think and hope there will be significant pushback against such changes from the students and their families.
