Meet The Real Mayor Pete

From nowhere Pete Buttigieg, the homosexual mayor of South Bend, IN, has become a well-known fixture in the American media as a candidate for President of the United States. In this video Patrick Coffin interviews Dr. E. Michael Jones, who is Mayor Pete's neighbor and author of a concise biography about Mayer Pete titled “Home Alone: A Neighbor's Thoughts on Pete Buttigieg,” a riff on the candidate’s memoirs (well, a memoir cum political manifesto), Shortest Way Home: One Mayor’s Challenge and a Model for America’s Future. (May 28, 2019)

Mayor Pete grew up on the same street where the Jones family lives in South Bend. Jones’ oldest son attended the same high school, where both were class valedictorian (in different years, of course), and both went to Harvard. Yet, in Mayor Pete’s memoirs there is no mention of neighbors like the Jones family. As Jones makes clear, almost nothing is what it appears when it comes to this longshot Democratic candidate.

In this episode of the Patrick Coffin Show you will learn:

  • The hard left wing political ideas of Antonio Gramsci and Michel Foucault held and taught by Mayor Pete’s father, the late Joe Buttigieg of Notre Dame, and how these have profoundly influenced Junior.

  • Why the homosexual is now considered the ideal citizen.

  • The context of Mayor Pete’s mendacious rise in local politics and why South Bend residents do not grade him highly as major.

  • How the Democratic Party essentially invented Citizen Pete out of thin air.

  • Why Mayor Pete’s so-called gay marriage in the Episcopal church is the apotheosis of the 1930 Anglican decision to permit birth control.

What the Bleep Happened to Architecture

Socrates said that the order of the city was the order of the soul writ large. That observation is all the more true today—and not a compliment to the modern soul or the modern city. Most people simply don’t advert to the quiet influence the surrounding architecture has on their psyche: the shape and scale of buildings, the order and proportion (or lack thereof). The father of modern Bauhaus architecture is the German Walter Gropius, a promiscuous cad who married a promiscuous shrew named Anna Mahler, wife of composer Gustav Mahler. Dr. E. Michael Jones, editor of Culture Wars magazine says that Gropius painted into his architectural vision a radically new kind of building and with it, a revolution in urban planning.

In this episode you will learn:

  • The subtle (?) ways in which the architecture that surrounds us tells us who we are and what our life’s priorities ought to be

  • How Gropius’s rationalization of his own degeneracy got transmuted into buildings built purely for function, and ugly as sin besides

  • Why rebellion against Logos leads to disorder and chaos in the external design of things

  • What public housing Projects in Chicago, suburban Moscow, and industrial Poland have in common

  • Why classical architecture as nurtured by Catholic principles and sound philosophy can lead the way to beautify both home and church design.
