Pete Buttigieg is putting together a team of "experts" to help him guide the Department of Transportation straight into the ground by making "equity" a priority.
For the rest of this article, it's important to remember that "equity" is modern Democrat code for Marxism.
But when you see the policies and ideas these "experts" espouse, that will become pretty clear.
Buttigieg earlier this month appointed 24 new members to his Advisory Committee on Transportation Equity, an Obama-era body that Buttigieg is reviving after the Trump administration scrapped it. Included on the committee is Andrea Marpillero-Colomina, a "spatial policy scholar" who says "ALL CARS ARE BAD" given that they cause "a myriad of environmental issues and conditions."
Another Buttigieg appointee, self-described "transportation nerd" Veronica Davis, argued in an August essay that cars perpetuate "systemic racism" and are therefore "the problem" in America's transportation system.
The committee is literally just: "Cars are bad and they destroy the planet AND they're racist! Thanks for the government appointment and professional prestige!"
You can tell that they're Marxist because they want everyone to suffer.
The committee will advise Buttigieg on "promising practices to institutionalize equity into agency programs, policies, regulations, and activities" and plans to meet for the first time this fall, according to Buttigieg's August announcement.
It's a bunch of loser academics with their "theories" about how cars perpetuate systemic racism because only white people can drive or something like that. Idk, I'm not a racist like them.
In addition to Marpillero-Colomina and Davis, Buttigieg tapped to serve on the committee Oliver Sellers-Garcia, who serves as Boston mayor Michelle Wu's Green New Deal director. The city's Green New Deal program, which Sellers-Garcia manages, calls for Boston to transition away from cars and embrace a "multimodal" plan of transportation.
"We need to make it not only possible but also preferable for residents to leave traffic- and pollution-inducing fossil fuel-powered vehicles behind," the city's plan states.
"You vill live in the pod, you vill eat ze bugs, and you vill be happy!"
All of this in addition to sky-high gas price increases, pushing of electric vehicles from the Biden admin, and a general Democrat anti-car policy.
How long until your cars are scooped up by the government?
I'm sorry, OUR cars, comrade!
