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.
