BREAKING: Buttigieg claims bridge collapse was hate crime after learning the bridge was gay


WASHINGTON, DC—Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has made the bold claim that the recent collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore should be investigated as a hate crime. The announcement has left many scratching their heads, wondering how a bridge could possibly be the target of a hate crime.

Buttigieg, known for his unwavering support of the LGBTQ+ community, has insisted that the bridge’s collapse was not simply an accident, but rather a targeted attack on a non-human community member. “This was not just an act of infrastructure terrorism, but an act of hate directed towards a bridge that identified as gay,” he stated in a fiery press conference.

The Secretary went on to detail the extensive history of hate crimes directed towards bridges, highlighting the need for increased protections for these often-overlooked members of the community. “It is time for us to take a stand and say, ‘No more!’ to this senseless violence,” he declared.

Critics of Buttigieg’s decision have argued that the move is nothing more than a political stunt, designed to capitalize on the growing wave of anti-hate sentiment sweeping the nation. However, the Transportation Secretary has vehemently denied these claims, insisting that his focus is on ensuring justice for the bridge and the surrounding community.

“To those who would dismiss this as a political ploy, I say this: look at the facts. This bridge was a proud, gay bridge, and it was targeted for destruction. That is a hate crime, plain and simple,” he stated.

As the investigation into the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapse continues, it remains to be seen whether Buttigieg’s push for hate crime charges will gain any traction. However, one thing is clear: the Transportation Secretary is not backing down, and he is determined to fight for justice for the victims of this senseless act of violence.
