Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is blasting the Hallmark Channel’s decision to pull four television commercials that featured a lesbian couple kissing.
“Families are built on love—no matter what they look like,” Buttigieg, the first openly gay presidential candidate, tweeted Sunday. “Being ‘family friendly’ means honoring love, not censoring difference.”
In other words, “wholesome” Mayor Pete believes the reason for the season is forcing children to watch lesbians making out on the Hallmark Channel.
“This truth will be more important than ever as we rebuild our nation into a place defined by belonging, not by exclusion,” he said.

The Hallmark Channel drew Mayor Pete’s ire after they yanked the commercials in response to a deluge of complaints from viewers.
One Million Moms launched a petition drive that led to the Hallmark Channel’s decision to pull the ads.
“Shame on Hallmark for airing commercials with same-sex couples and even considering movies with LGBT content and lead characters,” the organization declared in a prepared statement. “Until recently, Hallmark had a good record for keeping their movies and commercials family friendly. Now, parents can no longer trust Hallmark because Hallmark is no longer allowing parents to be the primary educators when it comes to sex and sexual morality.”
Thousands of concerned viewers signed the petition, leading Hallmark to backtrack.
“The debate surrounding these commercials on all sides was distracting from the purpose of our network, which is to provide entertainment value,” said a statement provided by Molly Biwer, senior vice president for public affairs and communications at Hallmark.
The reality is the sex and gender revolutionaries want to indoctrinate your children — whether they are watching the Hallmark Channel or Disney.
So ease up, Mayor Pete. If parents want to expose their children to kissing lesbians they can watch LogoTV or Bravo.
