A video showing U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s “husband,“ Chasten, leading gay teenagers in a distorted version of the Pledge of Allegiance went viral on social media Wednesday night.
The video, tweeted and denounced by the Richmond, Virginia chapter of gay group Log Cabin Republicans, shows Buttigieg leading the teens – holding their hands over their hearts – in reciting the following “pledge” to the LGBTQ rainbow flag:
"I pledge my heart to the rainbow of the Not So Typical Gay Camp. One camp, full of pride, indivisible, with affirmation and equal rights for all."
Buttigieg, then, waves the rainbow flag in celebration.
The video is from a documentary, Daily Wire Podcast Host Matt Walsh reports in a retweet of the Log Cabin video:
“This is from the Amazon Prime documentary ‘Mayor Pete.’ They proudly filmed and aired this moment. Nobody noticed until now because nobody watched the documentary.”
“Whatever this is, we don’t want it. Hands off, @Chasten,” the Log Cabin Republicans of Richmond (@LogCabinRVA) commented in its tweet of the video, which was subsequently retweeted by the group’s national Twitter account (@LogCabinGOP).
