(TheLibertyRevolution.com) – Pete Buttigieg knows that if he can’t beat Bernie Sanders before Super Tuesday then the task will get infinitely harder as he battles with Michael Bloomberg for second places. That’s why, following Sander’s huge victory at the Nevada caucus, he went for the jugular and attacked Sander’s “inflexible, ideological revolution.”
The former Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, made a scathing attack on the veteran socialist senator during a speech on the night of the Nevada caucus. Buttigieg came third place with just 13.9% to Sander’s massive 46.8% (at the time of 96% reporting).
“I believe the best way to defeat Donald Trump and deliver for the American people is to broaden and galvanize the majority that supports us on the critical issues,” Buttigieg claimed.
Buttigieg turned his focus onto sander’s explicit socialism and campaign to transform the United States, stating that his plans for a revolution leave out “most Democrats, not to mention most Americans.”
Buttigieg is right. Polls repeatedly show that socialism remains unpopular in the United States and that a majority of voters would not vote for a socialist.
The former Indiana mayor also said that Sander’s “vision of capitalism as the root of all evil” was an alien philosophy to most Americans and that it will be rejected at the ballot box. Specifically, he referenced the Sanders campaign’s promise to implement a Medicare system for everyone in the country, which Buttigieg said would force people to accept plans they don’t want or need.
Polls show that Bernie Sanders remains the frontrunner in the Democratic race, with at least one poll showing that he still towers above insurgent Michael Bloomberg. When the former mayor of New York City enters the race, the Democratic race is expected to become a bitter and divisive battle between capitalist and a socialist.
Buttigieg even referenced the stories of Bernie Sanders supporters, known as “Bernie Bros,” who are bullying supporters of other Democrat candidates online. Sanders said during a debate that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if the vicious online activism done in his name is actually “Russian bots,” but Buttigieg knows it isn’t.
In his speech, he explained how democrats must oppose “the viciousness and bullying that is tearing apart our country” and set a “tone of belonging” for the 2020 election.
“We must change what it feels like to live in the United States of America. And that is a real difference from Senator Sanders’ revolution with the tenor of combat and division and polarization leading to a future where, whoever wins the day, nothing changes the toxic tone of our politics.”
