“Mayor Pete” Doesn’t Miss His Moment To Attack Indiana

The Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, Pete Buttegieg, is gaining in popularity. The Democrat has launched a long-shot run for President of the United States, and has gotten some good traction.

However, as Tony Katz notes, that traction comes at the expense of Indiana.

Like Indiana media did during the RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) conversation, Buteegieg didn’t miss a moment to try and elevate himself while attempting to put down Hoosiers. Yet his own story about winning re-election, after coming out as gay, with 80% of the vote proves the lack of bigotry in the state. So why is he p;aying into the disgusting stereotype that Hoosiers are bigots?

Is that how you win the presidency? Insult your home state?

Jussie Smollett Thought His Lie Would Work, Because He Thought Nothing Of Dehumanizing Trump Supporters

Jussie Smollett has been arrested and charged with filing a false police report in connection to an alleged attack against him. As the story has played out, Smollett coordinated and paid (by check!) for two Nigerian men to attack him so he could garner sympathy and increase his TV salary.

[Tony Katz](http://twitter.com/tonykatz) gets to the heart of the matter. Why would Jussie Smollett do this, the MSM asks and laments? Simple: he wanted “Reputation Capital,” and he thought nothing of attacking, demeaning, lying about and dehumanizing Trump supporters to get it.

The real story is that Jussie Smollet, and those who think like him, have so dehmanized the Trump supporter and others who disagree with them that they were willing to accuse them of crimes and let them be found guilty for them when they did nothing wrong. And they did it for cultural advancement – for Reputation Capital – and for a paycheck.
