2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke is clamoring to try and stand out among the other Democrat nutjobs. The former Texas congressman’s campaign never caught on with Democrat voters, and he’s been a major disappointment on the campaign trail, as well as in the polls.
Because of this, Beto is going full-kook and campaigning on the razors edge of lunacy, by vowing to confiscate everybody’s guns, and rewriting our nations history to pander to black voters.
Beto is literally the whitest “white guy” on the planet.
In this latest desperate stunt to gain ground with Democrat voters, Beto has canceled the 4th of July, and now claims that America was actually founded on August 20, 1619 – the day the first slave arrived.
Does Beto carry hot sauce in his manbag?
Presidential candidate and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke proposed a new start date for America’s founding during Thursday’s Democratic debate.
“We can mark the creation of this country not at the 4th of July, 1776, but Aug. 20, 1619, when the first kidnapped African was brought to this country against his will,” O’Rourke said.
The candidate’s comments come in the wake of the New York Times’ 1619 Project, which seeks to reframe the American founding around the arrival of the first slaves in Virginia.
“Racism in America is endemic. It is foundational,” O’Rourke claimed.
The former congressman went on to address the country’s “systemic” racism, claiming that America’s original sin of slavery still affects African-Americans in a variety of ways in 2019.
“We have to be able to answer this challenge [of racism]. And it is found in our education system … in our health care system … or the fact that there is ten times the wealth in white America than there is in black America.”
O’Rourke went on to voice his support for slavery reparations, a position popular among the field of 2020 Democratic candidates. [Western Journal]
