Some Buttigieg Donors Demand Refunds With #RefundPete After Deciding He isn’t Progressive Enough

“If Pete Buttigieg fooled you into thinking he was a progressive at the beginning of his campaign and you donated what he thinks is pocket change, you can ask for a refund”

The struggle between the progressive and moderate wings of the Democratic party is continuing to play out in strange ways. Some people on the far left who donated to Pete Buttigieg have now decided he is not progressive enough for their liking and are demanding refunds.

You couldn’t make this up.

#RefundPete Trends as Early Backers Request Donations Back After Learning Buttigieg Not So Progressive After All

Though they initially viewed South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg as an intriguing and progressive newcomer when he began his presidential campaign early this year, the #RefundPete hashtag began trending Thursday morning on social media as a growing number of former donors started requesting their donations back in the wake of recent revelations about the 2020 Democratic candidate.

Kristen Hill, a volunteer community leader for the presidential primary campaign of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in North Carolina, was one of the first voters to kick off the viral hashtag #RefundPete.

“If Pete Buttigieg fooled you into thinking he was a progressive at the beginning of his campaign and you donated what he thinks is pocket change, you can ask for a refund by emailing your receipt to [email protected],” Hill tweeted.

Here are some other examples:

Supporters See #RefundPete Spread On Twitter, Ask For Donations Back

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has recently faced scrutiny for his closed-door fundraisers and work at McKinsey. He has since opened his fundraiser doors to the media and released a list of his clients from his time at McKinsey ⁠ — a record that appears to have sparked even more scrutiny. Amid this scrutiny, some have taken to Twitter to push the “#RefundPete” hashtag to express their disappointment with Buttigieg and ask his campaign to return their donation, encouraging others to do the same…

The trend comes not long after Buttigieg revealed one of his clients at McKinsey was Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), a federation of United States health insurance companies. According to Business for Medicare for All President Wendell Potter, BCBS is part of the current healthcare system purportedly “built to deny people medical care” and hit them with large bills ⁠ — a system he claims Buttigieg’s health care plan is designed to protect.

Buttigieg was asked about his far left critics during a recent event but made sure to remind viewers that he shares their values:

It’ll be fascinating to see if and how this issue comes up at the next Democrat debate on Thursday.

“ The struggle between the progressive and moderate wings of the Democratic party is continuing to play out in strange ways.”

There is no moderate wing of the Democrat Party any more than there was a moderate wing of the Soviet Central Committee. “Mayor Pete” is like all the other Democrat candidates: he wants non-leftists dead or enslaved.

There are the openly progressive proglodytes howling for re-education camps, gulags, and death to those who will not bend the knee to any bat ? idea the progs can think of next and then there are the closeted progressive proglodytes (same description as above) pretending to be moderates let’s all get along until they get elected.

Just vote no to any Democrat no matter what they say because if they were really sane, non-bigoted, non-racist, and moderate they would not be running as a Democrat.

Alfred E Newman could pull this in the 60s or 70s but everyone has a camera now.

Buttigieg is practicing the Obama philosophy and just like Obama, he is as extreme a leftist as they come. They just understand that they can’t win elections being honest about being communists.

I shudder to think any of them becoming President. Imagine the Democrat party having any kind of power given the abuses of power the House has been showing and the direction they want this country to move in, with far too many of their sheep without a clue as to where that will leave the majority of the people in this country. All they hear is redistribution of wealth, which to them means they get money for nothing.
None of them adhere to the oaths they took. Not one.

I wonder how many people asking for refunds actually donated?

Probably the same group who don’t pay taxes and then wonder why they don’t get a refund check in the Spring.

You know how is not asking for a refund?

Trump donors.

Progressive = mental illness

Media noted his small pivot to center last week. (I wouldn’t know. How would they?). The donor class and the ignorant minions of the Democrats seem to want to go full Labour.

I drank a lot of scotch whiskey back in the day, but I cannot stand the taste now. Who do I see to get my money back? Also, I would like a refund on my ex-wife.

Butthead can’t run a small town, and his core political beliefs are retarded.

Besides being gay, what else is on this putz’s resume worth bothering with?

Fat chance of getting your monies back. K-Y Jelly be expensive these days.
