Robert Francis O’Rourke is white. Elizabeth Warren might be whiter, but only because she made a fortune as a “person of color” before she had to admit she is not. But, this would be the second Democrat Presidential candidate wrongly associated with an ethnicity to which they have no right.
Will New Hampshire Democrats eat it up?
Dining on Deception
Democrats like to hide from reality. Who they are, what their policies do. This is no different. Lets call it the BETO diet. Shed the unwanted role of the European oppressor. Work off the progressive institutional self-hate. Squeeze into a new, more-comfortably fitting persona, and let people think you might be Hispanic. That way you can take your brief stint in Congress and that one-time loss in a US Senate race and parlay that into a job as leader of the free world.
Takes some hubris, that.
And we’ll be a little bit less free when you are done. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
The former El Paso Congressman will make the announcement on Thursday morning, but KTSM confirmed Wednesday afternoon he is seeking the Democratic nomination.
KTSM received a text in which O’Rourke said, “I’m really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents. It’s a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.”
El Paso is a sanctuary city. It also has higher than average crime. Those two things might be connected. But it is safer than 27% of US cities.
But he’s so dreamy. Sure, Bernie Sanders in a younger less cartoonist package. A bit less cartoonist. And not even remotely Hispanic.
O’Rourke, whose nickname is popular among Latinos, is not a member (of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus) because he lacks Hispanic heritage.
Robert Francis O’Rourke is about as Latino as Ted Kennedy. No less of a left-winger, but another pasty white guy of European descent taking advantage of a manufactured victim-class of the Democrat propaganda machine to advance his desire for power.
Power he and his party would use to oppress the people he claims to champion. Because that’s how it always ends. And there are still people who fall for it. And some of them live in New Hampshire.
