A smattering of media figures attacked former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Wednesday, suggesting that he used racist language when he called for a president who had their roots in the "American Heartland."
"It is a dog whistle," former CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien tweeted. "And maybe Mayor Pete isn’t aware of that. There is nothing more virtuous about a vision honed in the Heartland. Again—he should sit with his staffers of color and have them explain this to him." [Hint: read the article to see if he did]
The controversy came as Buttigieg's campaign reportedly disseminated a questionnaire for staff members of color, asking them whether they experienced "microaggressions" in the workplace. The survey was the latest indication that Buttigieg might be encountering issues with his ability to connect with minorities.
Buttigieg had originally tweeted that his roots in the "heartland" were an antidote to the ineffective politics of Washington, D.C.
"Heartland is code. And I'm over it," tweeted Sherrilyn Ifill, president and director-counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund."It erases the legitimacy of the experiences and reality of Black mid-Westerners and cloaks white mid-Western communities in a gauzy innocence and authenticity."
Comedian Andy Richter similarly tweeted: "I’m from the supposed Heartland, and in a political context 'the Heartland' does not mean not-Washington. It means the place where white people run things."
Oh, gag, for cryin' out loud! Do any of these people ever have an original thought? Go here and read the article to find out: https://www.foxnews.com/media/pete-buttigieg-backlash-american-heartland And if you have a dog, give him/her a hug instead of using a dog whistle!
Second, this shows the difficulty the Democrats have; they NEED the heartland but are incapable of giving up their contempt for it. Mayor Pete rightly understands that the heartland was what put Donald Trump in office and he needs to fool at least some of us to win the Presidency. People like Soledad O'Brien are so contemptuous of Middle America they can't see the need to do this - or are incapable of swallowing their pride enough to do it.
Democrats in the past (and she is one, news person or no) used to hide who they really were in order to fool people into voting for them. But they thought they had won completely with Obama and they are unwilling to go back into the closet, as it were (with Mayor Pete more so perhaps.) They want to give the middle finger to Middle America.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.
Do not use the extended-release form of oxycodone to relieve pain that is mild or that will go away in a few days. This medication is not for occasional ("as needed”) use.
