Beto O’Rourke is at it again, using terribly flawed logic in order to disparage Donald Trump.
Hate begets hate; this is something that humanity has known for centuries. We are an emotional species whose reactionary nature drives us to do both great and horrific things. We bounce around this life like a pinball, torn between anger, hate, love, and compassion at all times. Some, like the mainstream media, use our emotional nature to control us, spending an inordinate amount of time and resources to keep us hooked. Politicians do the same, but far too often their manipulations steer us toward rabid fanaticism and division as opposed to more empathic endeavors.
Such is the case for Beto O’Rourke, whose hyperbolic disdain for President Trump isn’t compelling the American people to make positive change. It is instead pushing us ever closer to the brink of conflict with one another.
His latest assertion regarding the Commander in Chief is the perfect example.
When asked if Trump is a white supremacist, O’Rourke said, “He is. He has made that very clear. He dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the majority of people here. He said I wish we had more immigrants from Nordic countries because those from Haiti bring AIDS, those from Africa are shit-hole nations. He’s been clear who he wants to keep out with walls and cages and militarization and torture and cruelty.”
O’Rourke has consistently blamed President Trump for the horrific mass shooting that took place over the weekend in El Paso, Texas, intimating that Trump has somehow inspired these hate mongers to commit their atrocious acts.
When his earlier comments didn’t provide Beto with a bump in the polls, the Texan was forced go nuclear with his “white supremacist” line. This is not a compassionate response, nor is it a path forward. O’Rourke is simply using this loaded jargon to further his political career, at the cost of pushing Americans further into the divide diatribes of the mainstream media.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
