Chasten Buttigieg Has The Perfect Clapback To Tucker Carlson’s Attacks On His Husband

Earlier this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson proved yet again what a willfully ignorant bigot he is, attacking Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for daring to have an opinion on the mass shooting at Club Q, an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado.

According to Carlson, Buttigieg didn’t bother to come out of the closet until his thirties. Oh, and he also accused Buttigieg of lying about his sexual orientation to gain entrance into the U.S. military, where he served with honor and distinction.

Specifically, Carlson told his equally bigoted viewers:

“No, Pete Buttigieg wants to talk about identity. He always wants to talk about identity. And the funny, ironic thing is that until just a few years ago, Buttigieg wouldn’t even admit that he was gay. He hid that and then lied about it for reasons he has never been asked to explain. Why not?

“But whatever. Now he is happy to use his sexual orientation as a cudgel to bash you repeatedly in the face into submission. Quote, here’s his latest, ‘If you’re a politician or media figure who sets up the LGBTQ community to be hated and feared, not because any of us who ever harmed you, but because you find it useful that don’t you dare act surprised when this kind of violence follows.’”

That led Chasten Buttigieg, who is married to the transportation secretary, to tell CNN host Don Lemon:

“I would just love for him to follow Secretary Pete on Twitter. He can follow along all of the things that are happening at the Department.

“I just think these people, again, with the megaphones, they have a bit platform. And rather than focusing on real issues, people’s lives – making them better, they decided to focus on hate.”

Chasten also explained exactly why his husband hid his sexual orientation while he chose to serve his country:

“My husband served under ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell,’ which means that he would have been discharged from the American military had he come out of the closet.”

But it was what Chasten Buttigieg said next that’s the perfect antidote to the narrowminded musings of Carlson and his ilk.

“Remember, this type of rhetoric is easy. It’s so easy to attack people and go on your talk show and fire people up about something that’s not actually happening.

“I love my husband deeply. I know that he’s a committed public servant and he has everyone’s best interest at heart.”

Lauren Boebert Says SHE’S A Victim Of The Club Q Mass Shooting

Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert wants us all to feel sorry for her because she says that she’s also a victim of the Club Q mass shooting that left five dead and 17 others injured in Colorado Springs last Saturday.

During an appearance on One America News Network, Boebert claimed the families of the Club Q victims “don’t even have time to grieve before the Left starts pointing the blame and trying to find a cause for this instead of actually going after the deranged shooter, the evil person who did this.”

And then came the congresswoman’s claim that she’s just as much of a victim as those who were shot at the nightclub.

“I’ve been accused of just about every mass shooting there has been. I’ve been blamed for all of it. It has to come to an end. The Left is pissed I won my election, so they’re trying to find something to go after me about.”

Yeah, as if there’s any shortage of things we can “go after” Boebert for. After all, this is the same woman who has said the following things:

Boebert’s victimhood claim was met with righteous scorn on Twitter.

Tucker Carlson’s Latest Attack On Pete Buttigieg: He ‘Lied’ About Being Gay

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is absolutely livid because he claims that Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg didn’t “even admit that he was gay” until a few years ago and “lied about it for reasons he has never been asked to explain.”

Carlson made his remarks in reference to the mass shooting at an LGBTQ bar in Colorado Springs that left five dead and dozens of others injured.

“Pete Buttigieg, of course, couldn’t pass up a moment like this. It’s not like Pete Buttigieg wants to talk about how things are going over at the Transportation Department, which he supposedly runs. Short answer not well.”

That led Carlson to go on an extended rant about Buttigieg in which he accused the transportation secretary of using the Colorado shooting to advance his political aims:

“No, Pete Buttigieg wants to talk about identity. He always wants to talk about identity. And the funny, ironic thing is and the tell just a few years ago, Buttigieg wouldn’t even admit that he was gay. He hid that and then lied about it for reasons he has never been asked to explain. Why not?

“But whatever. Now he is happy to use his sexual orientation as a cudgel to bash you repeatedly in the face into submission. Quote, here’s his latest, ‘If you’re a politician or media figure who sets up the LGBTQ community to be hated and feared, not because any of us who ever harmed you, but because you find it useful that don’t you dare act surprised when this kind of violence follows.'”

The Fox host concluded:

“Buttigieg, now that you’re admitting you’re gay after lying about it, since we’re talking about identity. What do you have to say about that? Well, nothing. Weirdly, Pete Buttigieg hasn’t said anything, nor has he apologized for attacking other people on false pretenses.”

As with nearly everything said by Carlson and the other prime time hosts on Fox, the premise of his argument against Buttigieg is based on bullshit and outright lies that have absolutely no grounding in fact. Instead, they emanate from a place of hatred, homophobia, and self-loathing.

Buttigieg has indeed addressed why he was so reluctant to come out before he did, writing:

“I was well into adulthood before I was prepared to acknowledge the simple fact that I am gay. It took years of struggle and growth for me to recognize that it’s just a fact of life, like having brown hair, and part of who I am.”

And Buttigieg also explained why he remained closeted while serving in the military, noting:

“For individual servicemembers, that meant hiding who they were from the people they trusted with their lives. In some cases it meant living a life that was less than whole.”

Poor Tucker. He can’t stand the fact that Pete Buttigieg is more accomplished than he’ll ever be.

Trump Attorney Jenna Ellis Says Victims Of The Club Q Shooting Are ‘Burning In Hell’

You probably remember Jenna Ellis as one of the clueless attorneys who tried to help disgraced, one-term former president Donald Trump overturn the 2020 election with specious lawsuits that were repeatedly tossed out of court with prejudice.

Ellis claims to be a Christian, and yet something she said about the mass shooting at Club Q in Colorado proves she’s just a hate-filled sack of human excrement who enjoys trying to feel superior to anyone she doesn’t like.

On her podcast, The Jenna Ellis Show, the aforementioned fake Christian proudly declared:

“The five people who were killed in the nightclub that night, there is no evidence at all that they were Christians. So assuming that they were not, that they had not accepted the truth of the gospel of Christ and affirmed Jesus Christ as the lord of their life, they are now reaping the consequences of having eternal damnation. And that is far, far greater – we should be having that conversation. Instead of just the tragedy of what happened to the body, we need to be talking about what happened to the soul and the fact that they are now in eternal separation from our lord and savior Jesus Christ.”

It won’t surprise you to learn that this isn’t the first time Ellis has said horrific things about the LGBTQ community.

In 2017, she posted this on Facebook:

“Whether or not homosexuals are nice, wise people, or misunderstood, or mean is not the issue. … Sin is always sin, even if nice people commit it.”

Ellis was lit up on Twitter for her hateful remarks.

Ellis tried to dig her way out of what she said on her podcast, asserting that she was merely trying to encourage people to get “saved.”

If Jenna Ellis wants to see who is going to hell, all she needs to do is look in the nearest mirror.

Lauren Boebert Gets Hit With Her Anti-LGBTQ Tweets After Saying She Mourns Shooting At CO Nightclub

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) was reminded of her many hateful anti-LGBTQ tweets Sunday after she expressed sympathy for the victims of a mass shooting at the Club Q nightclub that left five dead and 18 injured.

“The news out of Colorado Springs is absolutely awful. This morning the victims & their families are in my prayers. This lawless violence needs to end and end quickly.”

Club Q, it should be noted, is a gay and lesbian club that has hosted drag shows. Such shows have been repeatedly attacked rhetorically by Boebert and other right-wing Republicans who have wrongly accused the LGBTQ community of “grooming” children for sexual purposes.

Boebert was quickly hit with reminders of the disgustingly bigoted things she’s posted on Twitter in the past about LGBTQ Americans.
