Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has overseen supply chain shortages and some of the worst transportation crisis this country has faced has decided to go after a regular American.
The attack comes as even CNN says “Travel in America is a crapshoot.”
Buttigieg recently appeared on CNN not to discuss the fact that he has ruined mass transportation in this country but to go after a woman who stood up for her beliefs.
Lorie Smith is a Colorado graphic designer who sued the state after she refused to create a wedding page for a same-sex couple.
Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote the majority opinion, which said, “In this case, Colorado seeks to force an individual to speak in ways that align with its views but defy her conscience about a matter of major significance.”
“But tolerance, not coercion, is our Nation’s answer. The First Amendment envisions the United States as a rich and complex place where all persons are free to think and speak as they wish, not as the government demands. Because Colorado seeks to deny that promise, the judgment is reversed,” he continued.
Instead of asking Pete about why he is terrible at his job, CNN’s Dana Bash asked Pete if there was any “merit” to the SCOTUS decision.
“No, there isn’t, and I think it’s very revealing that there’s no evidence that this web designer was ever even approached by anyone asking for a website for a same-sex wedding,” Buttigieg said. “It appears this web designer only went into the wedding business for the purpose of provoking a case like this and in that sense, I think there is something in common with the Supreme Court ruling and what we’ve seen happening in state legislatures in the country, which is kind of a solution looking for a problem.”
“In other words, sending these kinds of things to the courts and sending these kinds of things to state legislatures for the clear purpose at chipping away at the equality and the rights that have so recently been won in the LGBTQ+ community and when you do that it’s at the expense of so many other issues that Americans are asking for relief and support on, the kinds of economic issues that President Biden was emphasizing in his Bidenomics address,” he added
The failed Transportation Secretary said that the ruling “tells you everything you need to know about this agenda.”
“The fact that this was relief from a situation that may have never happened in the first place tells you everything you need to know about this agenda to use every instrument of government, courts and legislatures, to claw back at these rights for people who were just trying to go about their lives and just trying to be treated equally by businesses and by the government,” he said.
