The fairy tale may soon be about to end for Democrat Pete Buttigieg aka Mayor Pete who has come under intense fire following the shooting of a black man by police in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana this week.
The media has swooned over Buttigieg (pronounced boot-edge-edge) and his adorable husband not because he is even remotely qualified to sit in the Oval Office but because as an openly gay man, he is one of their own with a profession that is vastly overrepresented in terms of homosexuality than the general population.
Mayor Pete was riding high and largely floating above the fray as the rest of the field have begun tearing each other apart but after protests erupted days after the death of 54-year-old Eric Logan who was shot by a South Bend law enforcement officer responding to a call about cars being vandalized.
According to authorities, Logan threatened officers knife which he refused to relinquish which in retrospect, was a severe miscalculation that proved to be fatal. With unrest brewing in the streets, Buttigieg left the campaign trail and returned home rather than appear with the rest of the lamentable pack of fools at this weekend’s South Carolina Democratic Party convention.
Buttigieg made an appearance at a march for Logan where things got a bit heated with some of the protesters.
Citizen: "Can you say it to us today in front of all these cameras that black lives matter?"
Mayor Pete Buttigieg: "Did you just ask me if black lives matter?"
Citizen: "Yes we want to hear you say it."

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg was confronted by a group of protesters in his own hometown Friday following the fatal police shooting of a black man by South Bend police early Sunday morning.
Police Sgt. Ryan O’Neill claimed he fired his weapon when Eric Logan, 54, approached him with a knife and refused to drop it after being confronted vandalizing a car parked at an apartment complex. Logan was transported to a hospital, where he later died.
No camera footage or witnesses exist of the incident, which has stirred up racial tensions in the area because the officer is white and Logan is black. Buttigieg canceled several campaign events, including a fish fry he was supposed to attend Friday, to deal with the issue.
During its commentary Friday evening, CNN played footage of protesters, several of whom were holding “Black Lives Matter” signs, confronting the South Bend mayor.
“Can you say it to us today in front of all these cameras that black lives matter?” one protester asked.
“Did you just ask me if black lives matter?” Buttigieg responded incredulously.
“Yes, we want to hear you say it!” a female protester shouted from the back.
“Of course black lives matter!” the South Bend mayor stressed.
“Then fire your cops!” a male protester shouted.
“Are you a racist?” someone else shouted.
“You truly running for president and you expect black people to vote for you?” asked a woman holding a sign that said, “Who do you call when police murder?”
“That’s a downfall, that’s not gonna happen,” she continued.
“I’m not asking for your vote,” Buttigieg responded.
“You ain’t gonna get it either,” she replied.
This does not bode well for Mayor Pete who despite his recent pilgrimage to Harlem to plant his pursed lips on Al Sharpton’s ass as well as join the other Dems who are demanding that money be stolen by white people who never owned slaves to pay out in reparations now has a major problem on his hands that could queer the deal with the black voters that he has spent so much time pandering to.
Will Reverend Al ride to his rescue? Tough luck buddy, he’s too busy covering the convention in South Carolina so you’re on your own white boy!
