Yea, this trend has been predicted for a while.

People like this guy hates the US because they hate the people who laid the foundation and stepping stones for what we are today. So to correct this, it is the goal to just wipe it out, undermine the legitimacy the history of the US, make it a footnote somewhere.

They want a "new USA" with the year starting....at some point, and put those in the past as if talking about some past country that use to exist and we all "rose from the ashes" of such a country.

But they are going to push more, far more than just this. The goal is to remove and replace the institutions of the US, as that is the only true way to rid of the "old USA" and replace with a "new USA".

At that, go to Jefferson's Monticello, they all but replaced him there. They hardly ever mention him, but they make sure to mention the slaves every five seconds.

Because we must all have the same opinion and when someone dares to not share that opinion, they are bad and must be put in their place.

Listen to the interview. Even Buttigieg acknowledges that Jefferson thought slavery was wrong.
Quote:
Throughout his entire life, Thomas Jefferson was publicly a consistent opponent of slavery. Calling it a “moral depravity”1 and a “hideous blot,”2 he believed that slavery presented the greatest threat to the survival of the new American nation.3 Jefferson also thought that slavery was contrary to the laws of nature, which decreed that everyone had a right to personal liberty.4 These views were radical in a world where unfree labor was the norm.
At the time of the American Revolution, Jefferson was actively involved in legislation that he hoped would result in slavery’s abolition.5 In 1778, he drafted a Virginia law that prohibited the importation of enslaved Africans.6 In 1784, he proposed an ordinance that would ban slavery in the Northwest territories.7 But Jefferson always maintained that the decision to emancipate slaves would have to be part of a democratic process; abolition would be stymied until slaveowners consented to free their human property together in a large-scale act of emancipation. To Jefferson, it was anti-democratic and contrary to the principles of the American Revolution for the federal government to enact abolition or for only a few planters to free their slaves.8

Yet he sanctioned it. He approved it. He backed it. Practically speaking, he loved it.

Also, to quote the part you didn’t mention:

Quote:
Thomas Jefferson wrote that “all men are created equal,” and yet enslaved more than six-hundred people over the course of his life. Although he made some legislative attempts against slavery and at times bemoaned its existence, he also profited directly from the institution of slavery and wrote that he suspected black people to be inferior to white people in his Notes on the State of Virginia.

Buttigieg sounds like millennial thinking or as I call it, lack of thinking...

Definition of a hypocrite - someone who says one thing and does another. I doubt Jefferson’s slaves were impressed by his”enlightened” views.

Perhaps you should read his biography. You may disagree with is opinions but, he is certainly no idiot.
