Good ol' lib race card.

Beto O'Rourke's website: 'The president of the United States of America is a white supremacist'

Struggling Democratic presidential candidate and former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke is getting desperate in his quest to appeal to the far-left base, even declaring on his campaign website Thursday night: "The president of the United States of America is a white supremacist."

O'Rourke is seeking to breathe life into his campaign amid consistently weak polling performances, and apparently used the occasion of the third Democratic presidential primary debate to go for broke.

The former congressman — who gained national name recognition after his failed attempt to unseat Sen. Ted Cruz (R) last year — made headlines early in the evening Thursday when he proudly announced from the debate stage: "Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15."

According to Politico reporter Holly Otterbein, the comment "was Beto O'Rourke's strongest debate moment so far this year."

O'Rourke has promised gun confiscation before, and even received accolades from his opponents during the debate for his "courage" and willingness to propose scrapping the Second Amendment.

But as the debate wore on, pundits on the Twittersphere discovered that O'Rourke's campaign website had also been updated for debate night.

Indeed, the landing page shows (as of this writing) a red and black picture of President Donald Trump with a caption that reads, "The president of the United States of America is a white supremacist."

"Here's proof," the site says, citing dozens of "examples." The first was reportedly pulled from the El Paso Times, and reads, "Trump falsely claimed that El Paso, one of America's safest cities, had 'extremely high rates of violent crime' before fences were built."

Another example quoted USA Today as reporting that "Trump launched his campaign calling immigrants 'rapists' and criminals." A third excerpt was from CNN, and read, "Trump said there is an 'infestation' of gangs in our country."

At the end of the list of quotes, the campaign makes a call to action: "Say no to Donald Trump's racism. Donate now."

The campaign then goes on to spell out a litany of aggressive gun control initiatives set forth by O'Rourke, including creating "a nationwide gun licensing system and registry," a "national buyback program" for "assault weapons," and repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce Act, "which shields firearm manufacturers and dealers from liability when their products are used to commit crimes."

Beto will go down in flames started by him lighting his own farts. That will be his only legacy.

Beto is little more than a fund raiser for the dems at this point....

No political chance of winning anything....


A fear mongering bumper sticker basically....

Its a shame Trump can't sue for slander.

"White supremacist" is the current buzzword (or buzz-phrase) of the left.

Likewise, "racist."

And "white nationalist."

These terms, due to their promiscuous use, have become essentially meaningless.

So they no longer contain their original sting...

True. Must be racist has run its course.

Warren also called President Trump a white supremacist. From NYT:

Aug. 8, 2019

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said on Wednesday night that she believed President Trump was a white supremacist, broadly accusing him of dividing Americans along racial lines and providing direct and tacit support to those who believe white people are superior to other races.

This too will run its course. This may be next.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) got a stinging response when she called the testimony of former ICE director Thomas Homan "bigoted" and "jingoistic."

If Trump is a white supremacist President he has been a huge failure at advancing the cause. Unemployment levels for blacks, Hispanics and Asians is at historic lows. Food stamp utilization is down more than 8 million from record highs.

While it's true unemployment and food stamp utilization has decreased for white people as well, this just goes to prove they are not treated any better than non whites, something a white supremacist would never do.

For contrast look at President Woodrow Wilson who purged the Federal government workforce of blacks creating a white workforce. Screened the racist movie Birth of a Nation in the WH. Openly criticized the French for allowing blacks to serve as equals in the military. When he was president at Princeton he banned blacks from admission. Oh wait, he was a Democrat and therefore immune to charges of racism.

Deroy Murdock: Dem presidential candidates lie when they claim Trump is a racist

“Donald Trump is a racist.”

Democrats deploy this lie more often than commas and periods. Look no further than Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate in Houston.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey declared: “We know Donald Trump’s a racist, but there is no red badge of courage for calling him that.” He claimed that America has “a president that [sic] can’t condemn white supremacy.”

“Anyone who supports this [President Trump’s immigration policies] is supporting racism,” said Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind. “The only people, though, who actually buy into this president’s hateful rhetoric around immigrants are people who don’t know any.”

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas shouted: “We have a white supremacist in the White House, and he poses a mortal threat to people of color all across this country.”

“President Trump, you’ve spent the last two-and-a-half years full-time trying to sow hate and division among us,” Sen. Kamala Harris of California hectored, “and that is why we’ve gotten nothing done.”

These and other Democrats deliberately ignore the 25 or more instances in which Trump condemned racism, denounced white nationalism, attacked anti-Semitism, applauded Jews, embraced blacks, praised Muslims, and preached national unity and love among Americans, from coast to coast. I repeatedly have documented these statements, events, and actions in tremendous detail, most recently in a piece in the National Review.

Just last Tuesday, Trump addressed the 2019 National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week Conference at Washington’s Renaissance Hotel.

The president did not merely breeze by for a photo op. He spent a full 30 minutes speaking with black educators and detailing his policies to assist scholars, professors and administrators at these 101 public and private campuses – most with large, if not majority, black student bodies.

“For more than 180 years, HBCUs have strengthened our country and called America to greatness,” Trump said. “Your institutions have been pillars of excellence in higher education and the engines of advancement for African-American citizens.”

Trump celebrated distinguished HBCU alumni, including such noted Americans as educator Booker T. Washington, the Tuskegee Airmen who helped win World War II, civil rights leaders Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr., Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and others.

Trump specified the steps that he and his administration have taken to advance HBCUs, including the following:

Many HBCU students attend summer school. HBCU presidents appealed to President Barack Obama for eight years to allow year-round Pell Grants for college students. Obama didn’t lift a finger. Trump approved this in less than two years and gave HBCU students fresh financial aid options. Trump added: “I signed legislation to increase federal funding for HBCUs by a record 13 percent.” (Fiscal hawks might bristle at that number, but no one can call such a spending hike bigoted.)

The Trump administration forgave the debts of Dillard, Xavier and other New Orleans-area HBCUs, which have struggled since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

The White House has pressed NASA to recruit HBCU students interested in space careers.

The Departments of Labor and Education are collaborating with HBCUs to expand apprenticeships for their students.

Forty students have been chosen as the 2019 White House HBCU Competitiveness Scholars.

In his fifth week in office, Trump explained: “I signed an executive order to move the federal HBCU initiative to the White House, right where it belongs.”

These and other pro-HBCU reforms unfold just steps away from the Oval Office, not in some far-flung federal outpost.

Beyond this, Trump repeatedly spoke about national unity, including when he said: “Every day of my presidency, we’ll strive to give every child, of every background and every race, religion and creed, the best chance to reach that beautiful American Dream.”

These are the words of a racist?

Naturally, this huge story generated tremendous attention among the Old Guard media. Wrong!

Trump’s half-hour address garnered exactly zero minutes and zero seconds of coverage on that night’s ABC, CBS and NBC evening news programs.

Alas, Trump stomped on his own potential HBCU headlines by firing National Security Adviser John Bolton via Twitter at 11:58 a.m., just two-and-a-half hours before his speech. Still, despite that major development, ABC, CBS and NBC could have spared a moment or two to mention Trump’s HBCU presentation, at least fleetingly.

After all, the networks somehow found time for such urgent developments as ABC’s 15 seconds on the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders doubling their pay, CBS’ 22 seconds on the health benefits of twice-weekly naps, and NBC’s one minute and 34 seconds on a 9-year-old Ohio boy who was “lunch-shamed” on his birthday.

“The national news media have no interest in highlighting any facts which might undermine the ‘Trump is a racist’ narrative,” the Media Research Center’s Brent Baker observed. MRC kindly furnished this statistical confirmation of the networks’ irresponsible public affairs coverage.

Tuesday afternoon, Trump reached out to blacks – as he has many times before. On cue, the media buried the story. And, playing their part perfectly, top Democrats two days later screamed: “RACIST!”

This is exactly why America is choking on the poison of division. And the corrupt fake news media are right in the middle of this “DJT = KKK” venom – pumping it out by the gallon.

In addition to the term"white-supremacist“he has more than his fair share of sociopathy to go along with his long term narcist trait.

It's pretty ironic that the Left has gone completely crazy with hatred, yet they've ALL become armchair psychologists at the same time...
