[Ed. – Does Buttigieg think he’s playing into the hands of Republicans with his interpretations of Scripture?]
I’m surprised to see him let O’Rourke get to his left on a cultural flashpoint this hot, especially since Buttigieg has spent the past few months urging Democrats not to let the right spook them by calling them “radicals.”
“If it’s true that we embrace a far left agenda, they’re going to say we’re a bunch crazy socialists,” said Mayor Pete in July. “If we embrace a conservative agenda, you know what they’re going to do? They’re going to say we’re a bunch of crazy socialists. So let’s stand up for the right policy, go up there and defend it.”
Well, if you’re a gun-grabber, that’s exactly what Beto’s doing. And if you believe the polling on gun control, most of the party is with him on buybacks.
