Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is hoping to get elected president even though his future as mayor in a small town is far from certain, attended a Black church in Goldsboro, North Carolina.
The Reverend William Barber was giving the sermon. Barber is a big time leftist and absolutely hates President Trump.
When he made the claim that illegal Mexicans are only coming into this country to reclaim land that was stolen from them by the big bad Americans.
Buttigieg nodded his head in agreement.
Payor Pete is trying to convince Black voters to choose him. That seems a little far fetched considering the fact that Blacks in his city are not for him and considers his police department of being racists.
Barber in his sermon urged Buttigieg to continue to fight false history. He wants nhim to speak out for illegal aliens because we stole their land.

Barber also argued in favor of doing away with the electoral college:
“For my dime, I actually consider the electoral college itself to be an example of this problem because it affected anybody who had to live under a presidency that came about because the American people were overruled. And we’re living under one right now, which means everybody is experiencing the consequences of that distortion in our democracy.”
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.
