Pete Buttigieg is polling extremely poorly with black voters.
His campaign is trying to change this by having him visit with prominent members of the black community on the left.
During one such visit with Pastor William Barber, Buttigieg said nothing and even appeared to nod in agreement, as Barber suggested that illegal immigrants from Mexico are simply trying to reclaim stolen land.
Pete Buttigieg Nods as Pastor Says Mexican Illegal Aliens Just Reclaiming Stolen Land
Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Sunday listened and nodded without disputing a claim from Pastor William Barber that illegal immigrants from Mexico were merely reclaiming land from the United States.
“We call people illegal aliens … Why can’t we just own in America that some of the people that are trying to come from Mexico here are coming back to land we stole?” he asked. “And the reason we took the land is because people wanted to keep their slaves?”
Some in the congregation applauded.
Barber recounted that President Abraham Lincoln was against the Mexican American War that resulted in the United States ending up with more territory.
Barber urged Buttigieg, as a presidential candidate, to give more speeches about the “lies” of history that kept Americans divided.

Does Buttigieg actually agree with this idea?
The amount of stupid people out there kill me. The left new strategy to re-write American history through the eyes of liberals is dangerous and wrong. These people hate America and want to dictate their beliefs on to you.
