Man, it must be tough to be a white guy in the Democratic Party running for president.
I’ve even seen Pete Buttigieg, who’s a white married gay man, accused of being “privileged.” Whatever you think of homosexuality or gay marriage, I don’t think it’s particularly easy being gay.
Anyway, this below is painful to watch, as O’Rourke grovels after saying he was “born” to run for president. ” I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling is a public service,” he said.
No he wasn’t. He was saying the same thing Barack Obama said years ago at the outset of he 2008 campaign, when Obama said something to the effect of, “I can play in this league.” He was bragging, full of himself. Not discussing “public service.”
Beto also apologized for being white, for being a man, etc., etc.
I mean, is this worth it? And of course, it begs the inevitable question, If you are privileged, is it fair that you are running for president at all?
So Beto is going to fight illegal immigration with a carbon tax, I guess.
I mean, and these people think President Trump is insane, and they blame climate change for people surging to the Mexican border. Beto also warns, “wait until some countries in the Western Hemisphere can no longer support human life.”
Seriously? The temperature might go up a couple of degrees and life comes to an end in Guatemala?
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke said climate change is a reason so many Central American migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.
“There were 400,000 apprehensions at our border with Mexico last year. As you know, many of them were kids – kids who, if they were lucky, showed up with their parents,” O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman who represented El Paso, said at a campaign stop Thursday in Salem, N.H. “But increasingly, we are finding that those who are arriving are farmers from Honduras who are trying to plant what used to grow but does not any longer because they, too, are in historic droughts and cannot feed themselves.
“If you think 400,000 is bad, wait until some countries in the Western Hemisphere can no longer support human life, because that is the direction we are headed,” O’Rourke said.
Beto O’Rourke, former Texas congressman and Democratic presidential hopeful, compared President Trump’s comments on immigration to language used in Nazi Germany at a campaign event in Iowa.
“When the president of the United States has called Mexican immigrants ‘rapists’ and ‘criminals.’ He then went on to call asylum seekers ‘animals’ and an ‘infestation,’” said O’Rourke.
“Now we would not be surprised if in the Third Reich other human beings were described as an infestation, as a cockroach or a pest that you would want to kill. But to do that in 2017 or ‘18 in the United States of America, doesn’t make sense,” added O’Rourke.
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, got more bang for his buck after announcing his run for president than his 2020 Democratic rivals, raising more than $6 million online in the first 24 hours of his campaign.
O’Rourke, who served in the House from 2013 to 2019 and ran a closer-than-expected Senate race last year, announced Thursday he was joining a growing group of White House hopefuls.
The campaign said Monday it raised $6,136,736 entirely online and from all 50 states.
O’Rourke is even more annoying with his penchant for “inspiring” generalities and self-indulgence than Obama was. In fact, he is officially the most annoying person in the Democratic presidential field.
This is where most of the Democrats are going. They are so afraid of their base that they have to agree with lefty former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who smells strongly of insincerity and tells everyone we should be tearing down a portion of the border wall.
Does he actually believe that? Who knows. I think Beto believes what’s good for Beto.
Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, a likely Democratic presidential candidate, is scared to disagree, even while proclaiming that he takes a back seat to no one on border security.
The mob is demanding Democratic leaders, who know better, declare they are in favor of open immigration and socialism. And the Dems are caving to their own mob, for the most part. Sad to see.
