Pete Buttigieg’s father was a Marxist professor who lauded the Communist Manifesto

Wash Exam-

The father of Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg was a Marxist professor who spoke fondly of the Communist Manifesto and dedicated a significant portion of his academic career to the work of Italian Communist Party founder Antonio Gramsci, an associate of Vladimir Lenin.

Joseph Buttigieg, who died in January at the age of 71, immigrated to the U.S. in the 1970s from Malta and in 1980 joined the University of Notre Dame faculty, where he taught modern European literature and literary theory. He supported an updated version of Marxism that jettisoned some of Marx and Engel’s more doctrinaire theories, though he was undoubtedly Marxist.

He was an adviser to Rethinking Marxism, an academic journal that published articles “that seek to discuss, elaborate, and/or extend Marxian theory,” and a member of the editorial collective of Boundary 2, a journal of postmodern theory, literature, and culture. He spoke at many Rethinking Marxism conferences and other gatherings of prominent Marxists.

In a 2000 paper for Rethinking Marxism critical of the approach of Human Rights Watch, Buttigieg, along with two other authors, refers to “the Marxist project to which we subscribe.”

In 1998, he wrote in an article for the Chronicle of Higher Education about an event in New York City celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Manifesto. He also participated in the event.

  1. I am beginning to believe that the Cohen Brothers are casting the candidates for this Clown Catastrophe. Every time that someone new throws their name into the contest, a few days go by and more skeletons than a cemetery contains come out of the closet. In this case the candidate was already out of the closet, but his Marxist-Leninist father hadn’t been identified. This communist connection sure helps explain this candidate’s disdain for the United States Constitution and his desire to eliminate the Electoral College to “modernize” (destroy) the governance of our country.

  2. They have no platform. They have no focus. They have no agreement. All they have is “GET TRUMP”.

    Kill the booming economy? Non-starter.

    Broken border? We’ve seen it.

    Sanctuary cities? Trump’s exposed their hypocrisy.

    Anti-Israel / pro-Iran?

    Empower Islam? We’ve seen the results of the EU.

    NOKO? They have no clue.

    Counter Russia and China? They hate our defense.

    Kill more babies?

    They are the Titanic, lost in a field of icebergs. 2020 can’t get here soon enough.

  3. Buttstuff roared out of the gate with that usual homespun, folksy Midwestern awwwshucksism.

    But the more he talks, the more he sounds like a typical, farleft radical Marxist with an authoritarian streak.

    This nation will not be your power bottom, homo electus.

  5. South Bend has a very high murder rate (higher than chicago one year) and it is a failing city where people are fleeing to get out of it. South Bend’s population is declining.

    This is the natural order of things when the city leader is a sexual deviant.

    And let’s be clear. South Bend elected this sexual deviant to the office of mayor precisely because he is a sexual deviant.

  6. Pro-tip: Don’t ask Buttstuff what the First Rule of Holes is.

    You’re looking for “stop digging” but he’s thinking “an enema”.

    good one.

    The “organic excitement” part of the Headline is what I thought was bizarre. It’s a whistle out to perverts of the same cloth as Buttgagger.
