BETO TRASHES USA: O’Rourke Says ‘America Founded on Racism and is Still Racist Today'

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.21.19

Failing presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke unloaded on the United States during a campaign stop this week; saying America was “founded on racism and is still racist.”

“This country was founded on racism, has persisted through racism, and is racist today. If you don’t want to accept that phrase… Look at this: There’s ten times the wealth in White America today than there is in Black America,” said O’Rourke in Arkansas.

“Our country was founded on racism—and is still racist today. In Arkansas, I said why I believe there’s no denying this reality; and why it’s on all of us to change it,” posted Beto on social media.

O’Rourke made similar comments earlier this year, telling a roundtable of migrants that the USA was “based on White Supremacy.”

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

BETO SLAMS BIBI: O’Rourke Trashes Israel’s Netanyahu, Says He's 'Sided with Racists'

Former Texas Congressman and 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke slammed Israel’s Prime Minister Wednesday; saying the Middle East peace process has largely failed because Benjamin Netanyahu has “openly sided with racists.”

O’Rourke was speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire this week when he lashed-out at America’s closest ally in the region.

“Right now we don’t have the best negotiating partners on either side. We have a prime minister in Israel who has openly sided with racists,” said Beto.

“On the Palestinian side, we have an ineffectual leader. Mahmoud Abbas has not been very effective in bringing his side to the table,” he added.

O’Rourke’s comments come days after fellow Democrats -including Congresswomen Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar- found themselves under fire for making a series of anti-Israeli statements.

BAD NEWS FOR BETO: Beto O’Rourke Polling at 0.00% in Latest New Hampshire Poll

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.16.19

Former Democratic superstar Beto O’Rourke’s poll numbers plunged in recent weeks; with new data showing the Texan hovering at 0.00% in New Hampshire just months before primary voters cast their ballots.

“Former Vice President Joe Biden has a narrow lead over the field of Democratic contenders in New Hampshire, but Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) have surged into contention for the top spot in the first-in-the-nation primary state, according to a new poll released Monday,” reports The Hill.

“Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) fell to zero percent support in the latest poll after coming in at 6 percent in April,” adds the website. “The Saint Anselm College survey of 352 likely Democratic primary voters was conducted between July 10 and July 12.”

The survey comes in the wake of O’Rourke’s controversial comments on the campaign trail; telling immigrants that the US was founded on “slavery” and “white supremacy.”

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

O’Rourke spoke with supporters in Mexico last weekend; meeting with rejected asylum-seekers hoping to enter the United States.

“According to a pool report put out by the O’Rourke campaign, the candidate spoke to a group of asylum seekers in Spanish for about 15 minutes at a restaurant in Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from O’Rourke’s hometown of El Paso. The candidate then traveled to a shelter for migrants run by the Catholic Church, where he met around a table with migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala who told of being denied entry into the U.S. and returned to the Mexican border city while their asylum claims were being processed,” reports Fox News.

“Sunday’s visit represented a bid by O’Rourke to re-establish his credentials on the immigration issue after clashing with fellow Texan Julian Castro during Wednesday’s first presidential primary debate in Miami. Castro, a former Housing and Urban Development secretary and mayor of San Antonio, chided the ex-congressman for not being willing to fully decriminalize illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border,” adds Fox.
