Far-left Democrat Beto O’Rourke Announces Run to Lose Texas Governor

Far-left Democrat Beto O’Rourke Announces Run to Lose Texas Governor

 

In a hypothetical poll between O’Rourke and Abbot conducted in early November, O’Rourke trailed the current governor by nine points in a head-to-head matchup. Forty-six percent of respondents chose Abbott to only 37 percent for O’Rourke.

Formerly considered a Democrat up-and-comer, O’Rourke’s popularity with Texans waned after his disastrous run for the presidency in 2019. O’Rourke made several gaffes and odd statements during the early debate season, which effectively ended his campaign.

After the announcement, Texas Monthly confronted O’Rourke directly about his recent election history, which has included moves to the far left on guns, immigration, and healthcare.

Jonathon Tilove asked the candidate, “Unlike in 2018, you are now a well-known and polarizing figure, and the Abbott campaign will make sure Texans repeatedly hear the statements you made when you ran for president that put you to the left of most Texas voters. Will those define you negatively?”

O’Rourke deflected, “I don’t think this will be much of a campaign if it’s about me. I think it really has to be about Texas. It has to be about all of us.”

O’Rourke was then asked about the precipitous drop in President Joe Biden’s popularity during the first year of his presidency and how that might affect his chances to unseat Abbott.

According to O’Rourke, the answer to defeating Abbott is all about turnout. “I think you’re trying to say this is not going to be easy. I agree with you. And just to compound everything that you laid out, Texas was already the toughest state in which to register and participate in an election. With the elections bill signed into law by Greg Abbott, it is now even harder to vote in Texas.”

“In the 2020 elections, more than seven million eligible voters did not cast a ballot just in the state of Texas, in the most consequential election arguably since 1864,” O’Rourke said. “I want to make sure that I am reaching out to and listening to those who either had an obstacle in place that prevented them from voting, or never heard from a candidate and felt forgotten or written off or not included in the conversation and in the future of this state.”

A former three-term congressman from Texas’ 16th Congressional District, which includes the City of El Paso, O’Rourke made headlines in 2018 when he came tantalizingly close to defeating incumbent Ted Cruz for one of the state’s U.S. Senate seats.

O’Rourke then followed up his loss to Cruz with a run for the presidency. After gaining no momentum during the early Democrat presidential debates, O’Rourke ended his campaign in November of 2019 before primary season began, eventually joining the Democrat establishment on the day before Super Tuesday in endorsing Joe Biden.

Among O’Rourke’s missteps in his 2020 presidential run was his vow to take away certain guns from legal gun owners. During a debate, when asked by moderator David Muir, “Are you proposing taking away their guns? And how would this work?”

O’Rourke responded: “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

O’Rourke continued: “I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield. If the high-impact, high-velocity round, when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body, because it was designed to do that, so that you would bleed to death on a battlefield and not be able to get up and kill one of our soldiers.”

Despite receiving a thunderous applause for the pronouncement from a Democrat primary debate audience, the remark was used to accurately paint O’Rourke as a potential gun-grabber.

O’Rourke’s campaign was further dogged by a report that the candidate literally ate dirt in the wake of his loss to Cruz in the 2018 midterms during a January stop in New Mexico. According to the report from the Washington Post, the soil in the area was said to have “regenerative powers.” Apparently, O’Rourke also brought some of this New Mexican dirt home to his family to eat.

Despite a long aversion to political action committees, O’Rourke went on to found the Powered by People PAC, which looks to increase Democrat clout in the Lone Star State in the 2022 election. O’Rourke can now count himself among the candidates that his PAC is supporting.

Nah, he has enough support without me.  He pushed Cruz to the brink when he ran for Senate.  I think Cruz won by 50K votes.  Beto is still a pizza eating, skateboarding rockstar down here.  :niterider:

None of those things are inherently anti-capitalist. 

Now if you said, the democrats are pushing legislation to end private property, that would be a truly anti-capitalist policy.

Come on. Try again.

That want that too as well as keeping big businesses open during lock downs which kills small businesses plus they love illegal immigration which drives down wages on the market interfering with going rates for labor.

Ok, so when have they ever pushed for that policy? How far did it get? Was there a vote? Did it pass the house and make it to the senate? Lol

Considering that the 1% hedge their bets and fund candidates on both sides, why would they keep donating to democrats who would try to enact "anti-capitalist" policies? Seems kind of dumb, but I'm sure you have a conspiracy theory for that too! I'm sure it involves George soros somehow.

You think Republicans didn't want those big box stores open? Lol okay, right. When all the big box stores donate to Republican campaigns, I'm sure they had the mom and pop shops in mind. Just like the middle class that they do nothing for! Hahaha

You know who else loves illegal immigration? Those farmers that keep hiring them. The same farmers that vote republican.

BTW, the only workers that are effected by immigration, whether its legal or not, are the people who dropped out of high school and the wave of immigrants that came before them. That's it. You can't have all these immigrants "stealing jobs" and also have americans that "don't want to work". 

Just admit it, you have nothing. You just say "radical left", "far-left", "socialism", and "communism" as a way to shut the conversation down and to shift the Overton window. You can't name a single policy. So just derail everything by calling it the boogie man. Lol.

Clown.

Newsflash - These policies are typically brought upon by Executive Orders ("The Dreamers," COVID-19) and Judicial rulings (Hazleton, PA and Farmers Branch decisions).

::bzzzt:: Did you look at the campaign donations from the last cycle? WAY more money went to Senile Joe and I've already posted this Bloomberg article before so I'm not doing it AGAIN. So... why would Big Business want to promote these policies? The same reason why they love regulations which means that it keeps the little guys out and unthreatening to them because they can't afford to abide by the rules in place. Have you ever noticed that when a Big Business makes money they keep it, privatized, but when they make bad decisions and face bankruptcy they're suddenly "too big to fail" and their debt is socialized via taxpayer bailouts? Same principle bro. I'm sorry to disappoint you but George Soros is not involved unless it pertains to getting sweet, sweet taxpayer cash for an NGO.

I'm sure they did but they were the only party fighting AGAINST the lockdowns which you're conveniently forgetting.

Farmers also receive heavy subsidies to either grow or trash certain crops but even with that aside Big Agra has made their life hard and basically forced them to hire the cheapest, unskilled wages they can find. It's a system that needs reformation. I'm thinking people on social services can earn their keep and pick me some juicy cherries in the summer time. What do you say?

Uhhhh... are you serious? Have you seen the customer service and IT industries? What about construction? With customer service they just port the phone lines over to their location to skirt immigration laws and with IT people they have this nice handy, dandy H1B visa thing which was intended to bring in Einsteins from other country but has been abused to bring in people willing to do tech jobs for way less than a kid fresh out of college. And construction... Jeez, I can drive 1 hour south and see tons of illegal immigrants doing stone work, yard maintenance, roofing, you name it.

That's hilarious as I just gave you a full explanation which should awaken you since you're really not educated on anything that I've seen. The Overton Window, for a fact, has shifted leftward over time and not right so I'm not sure why you even brought that one up. As for boogiemen - Oh yes, there are lots of them out there and you know what? They don't give two shits about you or realizing your fantasy Bernie Sanders Future Land so ponder that when you're all tucked away in your Star Wars bed sheets tonight son.

Allowing DACA kids to stay here is anti-capitalist? Lol how?

Yea because a lot of the donor class didn't want to donate to a moron who tanked the economy. It's weird how socialism works out great for the donor class! They love them socialize tax dollars. But, they are capitalists!

Yea, the Republicans are anti-science and wanted everyone to get infected. Brilliant. Lockdowns should have happened along with monthly checks like Canada did.

I realize you don't like brown people, but the fact remains that immigration is not hurting American workers other than the uneducated and previous waves of immigrants. That's it. 

The Overton window has moved right. We have literal fascist trolls in congress like Gaetz and MTG. Obama and biden are basically governed like late 80s early 90s style Republicans. Obama even said as much.

Honestly I don't care to argue with 90% of your post. Just admit that bedo and the corporate dems are not anti capitalism. You have no evidence. None.
