ButtiegiegWhen you are a totally incompetent manager and unable to fix potholes in a small city, it makes perfect sense for the progressive communist democrats to nominate you as the Secretary of Transportation because you are gay, and your father spent his life translating the work of one of the most influential Marxists outside of Karl Marx.

However, when it comes to resolving real transportation issues involving the safety of our airlines, supply chain failures at U.S. ports, and railroad safety, it seems a no-brainer to concentrate on playing the race card by declaring U.S. roads are racist by design. That is when he was not implementing alphabet (LGBTQXYZ) policies, climate change nonsense, and other woke progressive communist democrat agenda items.

Roads Are 'Designed' to Kill Minorities, Says Transportation Secretary

While ignoring a cornucopia of crises in his two-plus years as Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg has found a supposed crisis that he will address, and it sounds a lot like his previously trotted-out theory that bridges are a tool of racism.

Speaking with Al Sharpton on MSNBC, Buttigieg declared "we've got a crisis when it comes to roadway fatalities in America" before making his usual pivot to frame the problem as one of race.

"We lose about 40,000 people every year," Buttigieg told Sharpton, adding roadway fatalities are "a level that's comparable to gun violence" for emphasis.

[OCS: And like the manipulated narrative about gun deaths, Buttigieg does not mention the overwhelming number of deaths that can be attributed to driving under the influence, or attributable to the progressive communist democrats as they promote smaller and lighter passenger cars demanded by global warming hoax-related fuel efficiency standards. Cheaper vehicles used by the poor and minorities do not survive well in crashes with heavy luxury passenger vehicles or massive pickup trucks.

In 2020, the most recent year for which complete data is available, 45,222 people died from gun-related injuries in the U.S., according to the CDC. That figure includes gun murders and gun suicides, along with three other, less common types of gun-related deaths tracked by the CDC: those that were unintentional, those that involved law enforcement, and those whose circumstances could not be determined. Suicides accounted for more than half (54%) of U.S. gun deaths in 2020 <Source>

And if you want to talk about racial disparities, ask why the progressive communist democrats never recognize the statistical fact that if you remove gun deaths attributable to blacks in the inner cities, you will have a per capita death rate comparable to Sweden,] 

"And we see a lot of racial disparities," Buttigieg continued.

Specifically, according to Buttigieg, "black and brown Americans, tribal citizens, and rural residents" are "much more likely to lose their lives — whether it's in a car or a pedestrian being hit by a car."

Buttigieg argued that the racial disparity is "related to discrimination" and "even the ways roads are designed and built" such that minorities don't have "access to a safe street design that's got crosswalks and good lighting."

"We've got to act," Buttigieg said, despite him not having such urgency to take action to address the broken supply chain, formula shortage, or toxic train derailments — just a few crises Buttigieg ignored or went MIA during.

[OCS: If you look closely, almost all roads and auxiliary infrastructure are built under Democrat auspices and programs by union-dominated labor which often involves cost overruns, shoddy minimum standard materials, and massive time delays.]

What's more, Buttigieg should have thought about where his argument would lead before making his proclamation about racist roads. Because if, as Buttigieg claimed, roads were designed to be more deadly for minorities, who is to blame for building those roads?

In cities and states with crumbling infrastructure, members of Buttigieg's party are in charge of roads. Such as South Bend, Indiana, where then-Mayor Buttigieg was unable to address potholes? Was the danger posed by Mayor Pete's potholes a racist design in action?

A new Department of Transportation roadway safety data explorer shows clearly where America's most deadly roads are. The data viewed on a heat map lights up America's big, Democrat-run cities like fireworks. San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta, New York, and Philadelphia are where these deadly — apparently designed to be so for minorities — exist.

So, did Buttigieg just admit that Democrats are making cities unsafe for minorities? Sure looks like it. <Source>

[OCS: Once again, Buttigieg, is so eager to dodge real problems like the lack of air traffic controllers that will disrupt summer travel, that all he has left are the progressive communist democrat talking points – everything is about color and sex.]

Bottom line…

America is headed by a cognitively-impaired President, surrounded by an incompetent and ineffectual cabinet, and run by a cadre of Obama’s acolytes with the assistance of a malignant bureaucracy.

We are so screwed.

And the GOP is sitting on their hands with their thumbs up their ass while waiting for a nonexistent political miracle to save their party.
