A few days ago, Pete Buttigieg went on the record as saying he envisions a per-mile tax on vehicles in the future—seemingly to circumvent the rising fuel efficiency of cars that cut into the already-ludicrous fuel taxes we have today. By doing so, this would punish rural and poor drivers the most, as they drive farther and likely have cheaper vehicles with worse fuel efficiency. Would this per-mile tax essentially become a double tax on the rural and middle class in America? Buttigieg claims that infrastructure improvements would cost $3.5 trillion, but others have suggested it could cost up to $10 trillion.
Follow me as I delve down the rabbit hole of Buttigieg's motivations, political affiliations, and driving forces behind the plot to "end the global rule of capital" by using the "unprecedented opportunity" presented by climate change to "construct the world that is possible" and enact "Eco-socialism."
As always, I cite my sources, thoroughly. This isn't hyperbole. This is verbatim the ultimate goal. Let's get into it, shall we?
Per Mile Tax? What Now?
The original interview was done by CNBC, in which Buttigieg says they are considering a mileage tax to help cover the cost of infrastructure improvements, which are estimated to cost $3.5 trillion. CNBC says they expect business taxes and high income individual taxes to go up, before she asks about an increased gas tax. Buttigieg says they don't want to increase the burden on the middle class, but then says a "mileage traveled tax" could be the way to do it.
Progressives are also said to believe that the infrastructure package should cost upwards of $10 trillion. Yep, you read that right. $10 trillion.
A mileage tax would almost certainly disproportionately affect rural residents in the U.S. Another thing to consider here is no matter how efficient one's gas mileage is, a per mile tax would circumvent any economic efficiency of one's vehicle.
But of course it's no wonder "Mayor Pete" has no problem tallying up the trillions of dollars he'd need for his stupid infrastructure project. His father, as it turns out, was a renowned Marxist scholar who studied the Italian communist Antonio Gramsci, and even founded a society in his name.
Joseph Buttigieg Faculty Page:
When he was still living, Joseph Buttigieg worked as an English professor for the University of Notre Dame. Joseph was born in Hamrun, Malta on May 20, 1947, and became a U.S. citizen in 1979.
In 1996, Joseph Buttigieg worked to edit and translate three volumes of Gramsci's Prison Notebooks, supported by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Joseph Buttigieg was a founding member of the International Gramsci Society and was also the president.
About Antonio Gramsci:
Gramsci was an active member of the Italian Socialist Party in 1915, and in October 1917 at the outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution, Gramsci is said to have identified himself closely "with the methods and aims of the Russian revolutionary leadership and with the cause of socialist transformation throughout the advanced capitalist world." In January 1921, he joined with the Italian Communist Party.
In Paul Bove's In the Wake of Theory, published in 1992, Bove writes, "Joseph Buttigieg has argued that Gramsci's exemplary worldliness 'needs to be restored to literary criticism today.'" Which suggests Buttigieg was far more than a scholar of his work, he was also a fan of it as well and wanted to bring it into modern literary theory.
Buttigieg & the Communist Brecht Forum
The Brecht Forum is described as the "place where Marxists pontificate and play" by the New York Times. It is also a place where "activists and agitators unite for classes like 'Antonio Gramsci: Revolutionary Strategy and the Historic Bloc.'"
On October 30 and 31, 1998, the Brecht Forum presented a conference titled "Communist Manifestivity." At this conference, Joseph Buttigieg was part of a panel "Can We Go From Cultural Imperialism to World Culture?"
Buttigieg is listed as an "individual endorser" alongside Angela Davis, Sandra Harding, Vicenç Navarro, Frank Rosengarten, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), The Socialist Party USA, and many, many more.
The entire thing is signed off by Louis Proyect, who calls himself the "Unrepentant Marxist." On Proyect's Twitter bio, he elaborates that he is an "Elderly Marxist with deep aversion to dictatorships, particularly those representing themselves as socialist."
Buttigieg & the Democratic Socialists of America
Joseph Buttigieg also appeared at the 14th annual Socialists Scholar's Conference titled "Two Cheers for Utopia: Reimagining Socialism" held on April 12-14, 1996, in New York City. The event was sponsored by the Democratic Socialists of America.
Buttigieg sat on Panel 26 on April 13, 1996 titled "What Does Socialist Education Mean Today?"
Also spotted: Jerry Nadler sitting on Panel 11 titled "The Left and the Job Agenda in the United States."
This appeared in the Democratic Socialists of America magazine called Democratic Left. Here's a look at their lineup of publications.
Wait... is Jerry Nadler a Socialist?
As it turns out... yes. Jerry Nadler was an integral part in getting Bill Clinton to pardon Weather Underground member Susan Rosenberg in 2001.
He also signed onto Bill de Blasio's Progressive Agenda to Combat Income Inequality.
Bill de Blasio worked on Hillary Clinton's senate campaign as her campaign manager in 2000.
During the campaign, de Blasio was said to be “'agonizingly inefficient in a high-pressure, ever-shifting situation,' so prone to ponderous indecision and endless, inclusive-to-a-fault strategy meetings that he wound up sidelined during the final weeks of the campaign in favor of more-seasoned Clinton insiders."
Bill de Blasio was endorsed in 2015 by none other than George Soros.
Jerry Nadler is listed as a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, since 1982, on their now-defunct website. But I found the archive don't worry!
Back to Buttigieg
Buttigieg wrote an essay praising Bernie Sanders in 2000 for daring to call himself a Socialist. He also seems to begrudge the fact that in the US, "Communism is still the dirtiest of ideological dirty words."
In the CNN State of the Union, on February 10, 2019, Buttigieg said Socialism as a "word has mostly lost its meaning."
In short, it seems that the Socialist/Communist takeover of our government is creeping in whether we like it or not. The more I look into it, the more staggering the problem really seems. For example, below is a list of the 2021 Congressional Progressive Caucus members. The CPA was founded in 1991 by Pete Buttigieg's idol Bernie Sanders, the Democratic Socialists of America, and the DC think tank Institute for Policy Studies. It has over 80 members in Congress and 3 in the Senate.
The Institute for Policy Studies, listed above as a founder of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, hosted a presentation given by David Schwartzman on October 12, 2009, called "Eco-socialism or Ecocatastrophe?" In this presentation, Schwartzman claims that climate change is a challenge "is also an unprecedented opportunity to end the global rule of capital." And that by taking "the sciences" seriously, they could "construct the other world that is possible." He goes on to say that 21st century Socialism will either be Ecosocialism or simply will remain the narrow vision of political sects.
In conclusion, our government is infested with Socialists and Communists looking to embolden their plan to "end the global rule of capital" by using climate change as a vehicle to deliver it with. These eco infrastructure policies proposed by Pete Buttigieg are just a symptom of the plot to make it so. His own father was a man who centered his entire career around glorifying a Communist. No matter which way you slice it, the outlook is VERY bleak indeed unless we wake people up to their plan and thwart it by any means necessary.
After my Cuomo video premieres on Wednesday, this will be my new goal. This is far too important.
