South Bend Mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg apparently stepped in it in 2015 because he uttered the phrase “all lives matter.”

Now, he’s saying … what?

“At that time, I was talking about a lot of issues around racial reconciliation in our community. What I did not understand at that time, was that phrase, just early into mid-2015, was coming to be viewed as a sort of counter slogan to Black Lives Matter.”

How is he unaware?

Either he thinks all lives matter or he doesn’t.

No one has a copyright on a phrase.

It’s totally okay with Buttigieg and the Left for babies to be killed, illegal immigrants to flood into our nation and a Green New Deal to bankrupt just about everyone.

But saying “all lives matter” is the thing that’s a dealbreaker.
