Chasten Buttigieg’s smart-aleck reply to Kavanaugh dining harassment exposes rank hypocrisy

“Rules for thee but not for me” is about as antiquated as hoop rolling when observing the no-holds-barred approach to politics that the progressive movement has embraced. Chasten Buttigieg, husband to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, demonstrated exactly that with his take on Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s forced departure by protesters while dining out at a restaurant in Washington, D.C.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, and even leading up to it because of an unprecedented leak, protests have been unrelenting against the conservative justices. As previously reported, Kavanaugh getting harassed out of a Morton’s Steakhouse was condemned by the restaurant and the right, but widely embraced by Democrat activists.

With a snarky take on the overturn of Roe v. Wade being the supposed removal of a woman’s right to choose, Buttigieg tweeted his reaction to Kavanaugh leaving when protesters arrived at the location saying, “Sounds like he just wanted some privacy to make his own dining decision.”

Buttigieg’s post was met with pushback for the built-in hypocrisy with a notable take coming from Fox News contributor Jason Rantz who wrote, “Chasten Buttigieg thinks it’s okay to harass people at restaurants. If you harass him and Pete at a restaurant? It’s a hate crime.”

It should be abundantly clear by now that any believed ill committed by a Republican, or someone associated with the right, is exponentially worse than an actual offense perpetrated by an acolyte of the left. If that isn’t the case, then it would seem odd that Buttigieg would be openly inviting protesters to come harass him while he is out in public, because that looks to be the standard he wants to establish.

As many pointed out, Buttigieg wouldn’t tolerate any such behavior and corporate media would devote an entire news cycle digging up dirt on the protesters, linking them to elected officials and accusing Republicans of promoting any abhorrent “ism” that they could manage to bring an “expert” in to discuss.

Like with everything, the juxtaposition is telling. For months attendees of then-President Donald Trump’s rally on Jan. 6 were detained without charge for entering the Capitol sparking the ongoing investigation by the sham Jan. 6 committee. Meanwhile, the same day that a suspect was arrested for allegedly showing up at Kavanaugh’s house to assassinate him, protesters were allowed to continue their demonstration outside his home despite it being a violation of federal law.

If the past is prologue, it won’t be long before some minor interaction with Buttigieg or his husband the Transportation Secretary occurs and the predictable change in tone will be broadcast for all to see. “That is what happens when one side wields power and the other side is a doormat. There won’t be any retaliation from the Right. No demands for retribution.”
