Buttigieg defends husband over tweet praising harassment of Kavanaugh at D.C. restaurant

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg smirked his way through a Sunday appearance on Fox News, defending his husband’s snarky tweet after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and other diners at a Washington D.C. restaurant had their meals rudely interrupted by a far-left activist group.

Kavanaugh, who was one of the conservative justices who butchered the left’s sacred cow of abortion by overturning Roe v. Wade, was targeted after the ShutDownDC tweeted out his location based on a tip, leading to a pack of extremists invading Morton’s steakhouse, causing him to be escorted out through the back door while the noisy tantrum throwers ruined the meals of customers whose only offense was enjoying a peaceful night out.

After the incident, Buttigieg’s other half mocked Kavanaugh on Twitter, writing “Sounds like he just wanted some privacy to make his own dining decisions.”

During his interview with host Mike Emanuel on “Fox News Sunday” the former mayor of South Bend, IN who many say by virtue of his gayness and despite no actual experience was put in charge of the complex transportation system of the United States of America, was asked about his husband’s mocking tweet about Kavanaugh, a man who narrowly survived an assassination attempt by a deranged leftist fueled by hate who drove all the way from California to kill him.

After Secretary Buttigieg addressed the ongoing snafu at the nation’s update on the Biden regime’s initiative taking on racist infrastructure of the 50s, 60s and 70s, he was confronted by Emanuel about his husband’s tweet and the commotion at Morton’s.

“Let’s go to a red hot issue here in Washington,” Emanuel began, “your husband tweeted after Justice Brett Kavanaugh left a Washington restaurant due to protesters, the tweet reads ‘sounds like he just wanted some privacy to make his own dining decisions.’ Is that appropriate sir?”

“Look, when public officials go into public life, we should expect two things. One, that you should always be free from violence, harassment and intimidation. And two, you’re never going to be free from criticism or peaceful protests, people exercising their First Amendment rights, and that’s what happened in this case,” Buttigieg replied. Were the shoe on the other foot, many people conclude that the D.C. police would have rapidly intervened to break up any protest by conservative activists, possibly even locking them up in the special prison for those who are rotting behind bars because they were at or near the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

“Remember, that justice never even came in contact with these protesters,” the secretary continued. “Reportedly didn’t see or hear them, and these protesters are upset because a right, an important right that the majority of Americans support was taken away away. Not only the right to choose, by the way, but this justice was part of the process of stripping away the right to privacy. As long as I’ve been alive, settled case law in the united states has been that the Constitution protected the right to privacy.”

Strangely, Democrat defense of the right to privacy has never included the vast surveillance apparatus that was weaponized by Barack Obama’s administration against political foes and is used to spy on virtually all Americans but hypocrisy remains the coin of the realm in Buttigieg’s party.

“And that has now been thrown out the window by justices, including Justice Kavanaugh, who as I recall swore up and down in front of God and everyone including the United States Congress that they’re going to leave it settled the case law alone,” he added. “So yes, people are upset. They are going to exercise their First Amendment rights, as long as that is peaceful, that’s protected.”

Buttigieg then steamrolled the flummoxed Emanuel who struggled to get a word in as Biden’s apparatchik played the “insurrection” card.

“Compare that for an example to the reality that as a country, right now, we’re reckoning with the fact that a mob, summoned by the former president attacked the United States Capitol for the purpose of overthrowing the election and very nearly succeeded in preventing the peaceful transition of power, I think common sense could tell the difference, he said while the host sat there with his mouth open without calling out the big lie.

“But as a high profile public figure sir,” asked Emanuel once he was allowed to speak again, “are you comfortable with protesters protesting when you and your husband go to dinner at a restaurant?”

“Protesting peacefully outside in a public space?” Buttigieg answered. “Sure, look, I can’t even tell you the number of spaces, venues and scenarios where I’ve been protested, and the bottom line is this, any public figure should be always, always free from violence, intimidation and harassment, but should never be free from criticism or people exercising the First Amendment rights.”
