Target Liberty: Pete Buttigieg's Father Was a Hardcore Marxist

As primary voters continue to go to the polls, voters may have to consider how close the apple has fallen from the tree when it comes to Pete Buttigieg and his father Joesph who was born in Malta and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1979. He died in January 2019.

Pete wrote at the time:

We miss him already but his love of life, and his moral passion, will stay with us forever...We are left with memories of his powerful intellect, his extensive legacy, his personal warmth and his deeply felt love for Mom, me, and all those close to him.

So what was this "moral passion" of Pete's father?

It was a passion for Marxism and more specifically the philosophy of  Antonio Gramsci.


You can't necessarily attribute the views of the father to the son. My father, for example, thought FDR saved the country from depression and that WW2 got the country back to work.
