Beto O’Rourke certainly does seem to have settled on a theme for his 2020 campaign, aside from door-to-door gun confiscation. His plan for the future is to remind us continually that America is rooted in racism and that President Trump is a white supremacist.
It might be shocking to call the president a white supremacist if everything weren’t now a symbol of white supremacy. Remember this summer when Nike pulled shoes bearing the Betsy Ross flag after Colin Kaepernick called them offensive? (Rolling Stone was kind enough to explain how the Betsy Ross flag was racist.) California Gov. Gavin Newsom applauded the move, as did 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro.
And besides, as if that weren’t enough, O’Rourke was just on cable news a day ago likening Trump to Hitler, so … trashing Trump is kind of his thing. Anyway, here’s O’Rourke’s response to Trump’s “lynching” tweet from Tuesday morning.
The legacy of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, and suppression is alive and well in every part of this country—including in the White House where the president is a white supremacist. https://t.co/q4rCTuQRon

If that’s true, we’d be much better off not electing someone benefiting from white privilege as much as O’Rourke. Better safe than sorry.
Beto is a Furry

Beto, you have raised the practice of mudslinging to the level of absurdity. Keep it up, you're giving the Democrat Party a bad name.

I now believe Beto’s roast isn’t fully cooked. Beto your elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top. The gears have stopped turning. Beto gets votes by instilling fear into people’s minds.

Well… he’s not actually getting votes, so… ?

The tradition of leftist hatred and unfairness is alive and well in O'Rourke twitter feeds.

This is some high level yoga twisting to take this tweet and get to this conclusion. I applaud this candidate for being so flexible, and so early in the day.

Ah yes, he used a word for hanging in reference to himself (a white man) so that is clearly racist against blacks.

obvious pandering is revolting.

To call the President a white supremacist is a flat out lie. And, such ridiculous statements is why no one takes your candidacy seriously.

Robert please just shut up. The only thing you do is breed racism.
