Busted: Buttigieg Gets Caught on Camera Doing Some Propaganda Virtue Signaling

CNN reporter shows Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg riding a bike onto the White House grounds...Buttigieg acknowledges it...



Quote:
But of course, there’s a basic story that is not being said by CNN, but it’s there if you look at the video.

“It would appear” from the video that he was driven close to where he had to go for a cabinet meeting in the SUV, then took the bike out and rode the rest of the way accompanied by someone on an e-bike as well as what looks like at least a couple of SUVs.

So what you see is propaganda being caught in real time. But rather than reporting it as the propaganda it was, the CNN just tweeted out that Buttigieg rode to the Cabinet meeting without saying he was really driven there.
Actually using MORE fossil fuel energy to PRETEND that he's using LESS fossil fuel energy...and the media becomes a co-conspirator in the charade...

Is it any wonder that rational, sane people don't believe anything these clowns spew?

Who really cares.....??

Seriously....


This isn't much different than people driving to go some place and jog and then driving home....

I didn't read where Pete claimed to ride 20 miles from home, did anybody else....?

There is a huge difference between someone driving to go for a run and the Secretary of Transportation trying to deceive people into believing he used a bicycle to commute to a meeting. He is supposedly committed to going green but stages a fake political stunt. Sure, that will encourage conservation.

Where does the electricity to charge these miracle batteries come from? Burning fossil fuels accounts for more than 60% of US electric generation. Thanks to Joe Biden we will soon be back to importing fuels. But hey, it's worth it not to have to read offensive tweets.

The rare earth minerals to make the batteries comes from China. The CCP is reaping the benefit of the bribe they paid Hunter.

read the infrastructure outline I posted.

this will decrease the amount of fuel used and decrease pollution

Thanks to Joe Biden we will soon be back to importing fuels.

we do import fuel; Biden intends to end that with his infrastructure action
But hey, it's worth it not to have to read offensive tweets.

feeling snowflakey are we?

you sure bought into that china/biden conspiracy
I thought hunter was busy wrecking the Ukraine. I guess he's a whiz kid
I can't keep w/ y'all's Q list. Carry on.

D.C. gets most of it's electricity from natural gas. The rest comes from biomass otherwise known as trees. Other than driving up the costs of electricity and natural gas for everyone not really sure how battery powered vehicles in a city that gets most of it's electricity from natural gas will be a benefit.

So is his plan is going to build enough wind and solar farms to replace the 65 percent fossil fuel powered electricity plant and 20 percent nuclear power plants?
