Buttigieg’s Husband: GOP is Making ‘Children Their Enemy’

Buttigieg’s Husband: GOP is Making ‘Children Their Enemy’

March 17, 2023

Thursday on ABC’s The View, Chasten Buttigieg, husband of Transportation Secretary diversity hire Pete Buttigieg, claimed falsely that Republican lawmakers are going “after extremely vulnerable kids, especially trans kids.”

Buttigieg said, “I think it’s an extremely dangerous time, and it’s a really upsetting time because nothing could be more important than showing up and protecting our families. The way they say they’re showing up for our families, this conversation about giving parents more choice, protecting children, what they’ve really done is, and they have done quite a good job, it been a very well coordinated and well-funded effort to attack the LGBTQ community, specifically with the book bans.”

Fact check: there’s no book ban. What he’s referring to is the righteous parental outrage over children being exposed to sexually explicit books being promoted by school librarians under the guise of sex education. No one has asked for the banning of books.

Another fact check: conservatives are not targeting trans youth. It’s the Left targeting vulnerable children by inculcating gender confusion and then exploiting that to turn drive a wedge between children and their parents. The goal is to subvert the nuclear family, groom children into the demonic Left’s sexual libertinism, and medically mutilate children who have been convinced they are “trans.”

He continued, “When you look at what many of these things have in common, they’re extremely vulnerable children. You have groups of politicians making calculated choices, maybe because they’re losing some policy arguments, to go after extremely vulnerable kids, especially trans kids. It’s hard enough being in school as it is but to be a transgender kid in school and you have this coordinated effort by people who are going after them because they don’t know what else to talk about. They need an enemy. Right now they’ve decided to make children their enemy. It’s very, very nerve wracking which is why I’m glad, I hope that book gets into hands of kids who are looking up to politicians and wondering ‘Do I have a place in this country, do I belong here?’ My answer to them is, yes, you do. There are millions of people in this country who will fight for you and show up for you.”

Claiming that the Right is coming after children simply because they’ve decided to “make children an enemy” is pure demagoguery and demonization. But he got no pushback from the hostesses because the show is pure leftist propaganda.
