Beto, Go Home Already, You’re Drunk

Beto O’Rourke is desperately trying to hang onto his flagging presidential campaign. It’s no wonder, either, since a current average of polls shows him at a whopping 2.6 percent.

So he went to Nashville, and while he was there, said some pretty inflammatory stuff.

On Tuesday he addressed a crowd about the border crisis, flailing his arms and frothing about “kids shitting their pants or the very floor they will sleep on,” “torture,” and the “largest mass incarceration” of children since the Japanese internment in World War II.

Did anyone bother to tell him that Democrat president FDR put those Japanese kids in internment camps? Never mind, he was on a roll.

So whom did Beto blame for this horror show? Not Republicans (surprise, surprise!) or Trump, but all citizens. Yes, all of us.

Beto’s wild gesticulations remind of something I’ve seen before. Now what was it?

Oh, right.

However, that wasn’t the worst of the Beto Road Show in Nashville. He also sat down with immigrants and refugees at a coffee house (where all hipsters meet) to hear their tales of woe. He wanted to know just how ICE had oppressed them. Then he took a question from one of the roundtable participants.

That person asked how Beto would combat white supremacy if he were president. This is how he responded:

“I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy.”

“And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression, even in our democracy.” 

Yes, he went there.

Right, I’m sure Jefferson, Madison, Franklin, et.al., sat down at a heavy masculine wooden table in someone’s man cave library to hash this out. While sipping a glass of fine whiskey:

“Gentlemen, we are here to found a new nation based upon the premise that we as white men are lords of everything we see. We will govern as the supreme white men that we are.”

The idea that the founders drew up the nation to be a haven for white supremacy is as, well, shitty as the kids’ pants that Beto was ranting about.

I trust that the high school Beto attended discussed the founding of the nation and the Declaration of Independence, which would include these words by Thomas Jefferson:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

I also assume that he learned that thousands upon thousands of ordinary US citizens fought a Civil War which ultimately freed slaves.

But maybe I assume too much. Perhaps, instead, Beto was spending class time working on his creepy poetry:

“Wax my ass, 

Scrub my balls

The Cow has risen,

Provide Milk.”

Then again, O’Rourke’s words come straight out of the Democrat songbook. After all, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that Trump “wants to make America white again.”

“They want to make sure that people, certain people, are counted.”

Beto O’Rourke is just singing the song of his people — a bar room ditty of identity politics and grievances, especially for “people of color.” And he’s performing this song well, belting out its tune accentuated by flailing arms and hysteria.

Go home already, Beto. You’re drunk.

    Check out Beto’s “high school” = exclusive, all-boys prep school in Virginia called Woodberry Forest. woodberry.org

    Must not have learned much.

    You give Robert too much credit. Unfortunately, he cannot blame this mess on too much alcohol. The left has simply gone off the rails and even people on the left are noticing.

    That poem alone should disqualify him from ever being employed…anywhere.

    Keep up the great writing.

  • […] The Democratic platform is rife with socialistic ideas.    They don’t even understand the basic history of why the country came to be in the first place.  The agenda creates more dependency on a centralized government authority.  It comes in the form […]

    Simple solution, Beto. Tell those people not to come here in the first place.

    If America is fundamentally so horrible, why do you want to lead it? Wouldn’t it be easier to move some place else?

    Beto who?

    Still seeing some Beto stickers in Austin. Now that’s loyalty.

    Actually, the founding fathers did sit around and drink whole working on the BoR/Constitution. https://www.chicagotribune.com/nation-world/ct-george-washington-bar-tab-20180222-story.html

    Beto is clearly delusional in his bid for presidency but he’s not wrong that the country was founded in part by white supremacy. Our expansion westward was largely based on the concept of “Manifest Destiny”, in which “Indian removal” was veiwed as our destiny because those who supported it believed we were special. Native Americans were massacured under this belief as we expanded West. Despite our forefathers words, we must look to our country’s actions throughout history, because they speak louder and more feircely than the ideals laid out in the Constitution. And I would suggest that the agreed upon ideals in the Constitution we’re never fully indoctorined into our culture. If you take a deep honest look at our history there is white supremacy interlaced throughout, despite our best attempts to eliminate it. And while acknowledge that Beto overstated the pervasiveness of white supremacy in our modern culture, this is without a doubt real and tangible evidence that many of our institutions are still impacted by and influenced by this unfortunately deeply routed concept in our Culture.
