DL needs to answer.
Why are gay men so jealous of Pete?

nobody's jealous of a little suck-up who looks like Alfred E. Neuman, a log cabin republican who pretends to be progressive

Certain DLers are jealous of any successful out gay man OP
And not just jealous, but borderline insane a la R1.
Pete is just the latest in a long list.

Criticizing Pete is no more a sign of jealousy than criticizing Markle is a sign of racism.
The objective reality is that both are shitty people.

Gays are like work fraus they eat their own young. Any successful woman has more to worry about from other women than any man. It’s “who does she think she is” syndrome.

Exactly! Who does Pete think she is? I bet she slept her way into a promotion.

R3, how is Pete shitty? This should be a good one.

There are highly qualified out gay men - who were out for years while Pandering Pete was hiding in the closet - who could run for President and they'd eat lil' Pete's lunch - starting with Gov Polis and Rep Maloney.

There. Fixed it for you.

Who is the jealous racist criticizing Pete? I do recall Pete tried briefly to claim he was a PoC during the Democratic primary... but that color would be pasty white.
Pete certainly pandered to South Bend's racist police force, didn't he.

Lies. You area all jealous of him. He is super smart and share anyone down with his oratory skills. The right fear him..

There are a lot of Bernie nutcases on here, OP. Many of us find Pete to be an exceptional role model, and a great representative for the gay community. Drag queens, porn stars, and Andy Cohen as gay representation was getting a little old and played out. Plus, it just makes me happy to watch him work. He's smart, engaging, and one day will be our president.

He's too smart.

Everyone knows he couldn't do anything right in South Bend and he's already proving what a disaster he is on the federal level - i.e., taxing each mile you drive in your car. The latest incident with the bike shows just what a phony he is. Just like how DeBlasio would ride the subway for 3 stops, the press would take their pictures, and then he emerged to get back into his SUV.

The right wing nuts have their marching orders and it's obviously "attack Pete" so they must fear him.

R18, I knew that accusation had to be right-wing bullshit, and of it got posted straight to DL as the gospel truth.
|by Anonymous||reply 20||04/06/2021|
And thanks for posting it, R18.

Why would rightwingers attack Pete? He's a Log Cabin Republican mascarading as a Democrat.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||04/06/2021|
You tell me, R22, cause they've been attacking him non-stop for years now. You'd think he was Hillary Clinton.
|by Anonymous||reply 23||04/06/2021|
^^ They fear him.
R22 You need to go a corner and think why - and why your head is fucked up.

he looks like a rodent, has an equally hideous husband, and has a sense of unwarranted hubris. You're delusional.

I love him but if he’s all about the Equality Act, I can’t support him.

Ever since I saw on twitter a clip comparing a speech he made juxtaposed with a speech Obama made - same content, same phrasing even same gestures and an attempt at copying his voice, Pete has creeped me out. He's like a version of the Talented Mr. Ripley.

But he’s short.

He is short and short men don't get elected President. At least he didn't insist on standing on a booster box during the debates like Julian Castro did. I've met Julian and his bro. Julian claims he's 5'9" but he's more like 5'4". The organizers at one of the debates had a sense of humor. They stuck Julian next to 6'4" Beto O'Rourke.

Black men also don’t get elected into the White Hou... oh wait.

|by Anonymous||reply 33||04/07/2021|
To expand on what I wrote at R2, I suspect a lot of DLers are a combination of older men whose careers were held back because they were gay or men of all ages who blame their setbacks on the fact that they're gay and so when they see someone who is out and still manages to be successful it enrages them.

You have a point. It makes them feel inadequate.
