No one should be surprised that Pete Buttigieg claims that Jesus was “born a refugee.”
What a complete Bible ignoramus. Remember that he also claims God made him a homosexual, that God’s primary concern is climate change and that a baby is not a human being or alive until he or she draws the first breath outside the mother’s womb.
We should not be surprised. Pete’s father – Joseph Buttigieg – was the founder of the International Gramsci Society. Antonio Gramsci is perhaps second only to Karl Marx in advancing communist theory, which means that Joseph Buttigieg – although a Notre Dame professor for forty years – was a confirmed communist.
Gramsci’s major contribution to communism was the idea the violent revolution is not how to overthrow a free society like the USA. You do it by infiltrating its institutions of cultural influence and subverting what Gramsci called its Christian “cultural hegemony” with ideas and values based upon Marxism.
So you subvert schools, colleges, media, entertainment, journalism, business, the family and yes the church. You don’t need to close churches as the Bolsheviks, Mao and Castro did. You merely pervert the teaching of the church. You replace the cause of personal salvation with social justice and liberation theology. You replace the quest for personal change in the human soul for climate change in the planetary environment. You replace absolute morality with moral relativism so that it is not God’s law that governs behavior, but how you feel that is important.
Buttigieg like his Dad, is a good Gramsci-ite. Pete was raised by a sophisticated subversive, and he continues the Gramsci approach of revolution by cultural subversion. Gramsci’s idea was to usher in a communist revolution before the people even realize what is happening. It seems the leftist apple did not fall far from the communist tree.
