Ted Cruz Challenger Beto O’Rourke Calls Police Officers “The New Jim Crow”

Their first debate is tonight. But Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke—Democrat challenger to sitting U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)—can’t keep his foot out of his mouth.

First it was this, uh, explanation of his support for, well, illegal immigration:

Firstly: no, sir, we are NOT a nation of immigrants, we are Americans. And secondly: thanks for reaffirming that liberals do, in fact, want unrestrained illegal immigration so they can enjoy a brand new slave class (of reliable voters…he left that part out). Never mind what it does to those struggling to get by, like keeping wages low and reducing available jobs. And never mind the scores of women and children who are sexually assaulted on their trek to America. Or those who never make it at all. And never mind that O’Rourke’s answer is insulting to 1) the black man, and every other person with more melanin that me, he was addressing, and 2) every Hispanic person residing in America whom O’Rourke apparently thinks exist to do menial grunt work for bleeding-heart pasty liberals like him.

And…in case that’s not a grand enough insult for one town hall…there’s this gem, discovered as I thumbed through The Federalist last evening:

The Texas Democrat began his remarks by talking about the historic injustices against African-Americans in the criminal justice system, saying it began when prisons began colluding with local business and employers to arrest African-Americans for petty crime so they could force them to work on a chain gang.

“That injustice, to many more people here than I know firsthand, continues to persist today,” Beto O’Rourke said. “That system of suspending somebody, solely based on the color of their skin, searching that person solely based on the color of their skin, stopping that person solely based on the color of their skin, shooting that person solely based on the color of their skin, throwing the book at that person and letting them rot behind bars solely based on the color of their skin, is why some have called this — I think it is an apt description — the new Jim Crow.”

Way to channel Joe Biden.

While O’Rourke’s camp is claiming it wasn’t making the comparison—do they have ears? Can they read?—sounds to me like Beto’s hopping aboard the anti-LEO train to make himself a superhero to the Antifa-fueled Left. In Texas. How brave. Seems Beto—the guy who’s thus far ducked and covered from facing ultimate debater, Senator Cruz—has two left hands: on one of them, he apparently views blacks and Hispanics as little more than cheap labor, while on the other insinuating that our LEOs are equivalent to Jim Crow. Talk about your contradictions. And grotesque comparisons. Beto needs a history lesson, stat, on just who birthed slavery and Jim Crow. Hint: their logo is a jackass.

And can someone please remind this false prophet that five police officers were gunned down in Dallas in 2016 by a crazed sniper who sympathized with the law enforcement-demonizing Black Lives Matter organization? You know, the same group embraced by Barack Obama and Hillary “Bring Them to Heal” Clinton? Perhaps he needs a memory jolt.

Beto O’Rourke is now reportedly trailing Ted Cruz by nine percentage points as of a couple of days ago. And now he’s showing Texans who he really is: a cop-loathing race-baiter, the perfect panderer for the progressive left.

Perhaps O’Rourke needs to take a good long look in the mirror, start telling Texas voters the truth about his very serious Kennedy-esque DWI—oh, have we stumbled on to the real reason Beto Boy detests cops? I think we have!—and show some respect for those who enforce the laws legislators put in place. Legislators like Beto, who’d rather toss the entirety of our law enforcement under the bus like a good little Obama wannabe, rather than address the fact that he’s part of the problem, and work to address the very real issues that people like him helped create.

Nah. Why would he start being honest now?

So, Texas, please stick with Ted Cruz…

…he’s the real deal. And he has your backs, and the backs of those who put their lives on the line for public safety 24 hours a day.

You can watch the first Cruz/O’Rourke arm-wrestling match live here or here tonight from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. CDT.

    Also an accurate way to write that sentence.

    oh, have we stumbled on to the real reason Beto Boy detests cops?
    Nah. I doubt he even hates them. He just uses them and those who do detest them to gain power as a progressive. You’d have to think he really believes this stuff to believe that he actually gives a damn about cops either way.

    Vast majority of police officers are brave, honorable, and risk their lives keeping us safe
    And are also black and hispanic, especially in Texas.

    And, yeah, standard disclaimer that all the things the BLM folks are upset about do happen, just not in the quantity or the quality asserted, and not in the institutional fashion claimed. And often not just to blacks (and/or hispanics).

    “Nation of immigrants”

    So is every other nation except Ethiopia. His point?

  • SDN says:

    I hope that Senator Cruz points out on Monday that the Democrats are using the same standard on Kavanaugh that their Klan ancestors used on the Scottsboro Boys.
