A desperate Beto O'Rourke
goes for broke, claims America
was founded on white supremacy

Original Article

A failing campaign makes a man desperate, and Beto O’Rourke surely is a desperate man. The former Texas congressman was asked this week at roundtable event featuring immigrant and refugee participants to explain how President O'Rourke would fight white supremacy in the United States. "I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was founded on white supremacy,” the poorly polling 2020 Democratic primary candidate responded. He added, “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."

How is this different than what every single other Democrat claims to believe? Not only "white supremacy" but "the patriarchy" and "income inequality" ( = not enough communism). Add "raping the environment" and you've got the entire deranged package that every single former mind infected with a (D) buys into. The current wave of malicious idiot-speak among the Dims is merely exposure of who they are, not a change in their (total lack of) thinking.

And if ALL the Black voters in the US voted for him, seeing as he his statement will turn all but a few non-blacks off, that should leave him with less then 10 percent of the population that would possibly vote for him. That is if ALL that 10 percent voted for him. The Black population in the US, according to the last census, put them at 12 percent. They do get out the vote, but still----

Any public speaker who might be mistaken at the lectern for a freestyle swimmer hasn't learned proper speaking technique, and is trying too hard. O'Rourke is a pitiable, low IQ character whose mouth is not connected to his brain. If hair and teeth rule, he's the ruler. If not, he's lost, because that's all he's got..

This is getting old. Did he sleep through History class in middle school? In the context of the 18th Century when this nation was founded slavery was widely practiced throughout the world and had been since antiquity. The US colonies were not in any way unique in this respect. Yes, slave were brought and kept here, just like everywhere else in the world. Most countries in the world at that time were ruled by hereditary monarchs. Individual rights and liberties for common people were not recognized, instead it was the "divine right of Kings". People were subjects of their ruler, not citizens of a country. This badmouthing of our country's founding is really getting stale. Nobody in the press is bothering to correct these idiots.

So Robert O'Rourke believes America was founded on white supremacy. This is the kind of statement one makes when one is ruled by their hatred instead of their brain. They make stupid ignorant statements like this. Tomorrow, it will be someone else making stupid ignorant statements. None of the Democratic candidates for President are qualified. None of them use their brains!

Everyone continues to get this wrong, conflating culture with race. So here’s the answer. Write it down. The issue in America, and everywhere else in the world, is culture. It is not race. Since culture is learned and not inherited, the problem is by definition not race. America when it was founded was infused with Western European culture. Western European culture is far and away superior to every other culture on the face of the earth. Some other cultures may have their own little charms, but Western European culture is superior to all of them. All of the problems in African American communities are cultural. They are traceable to specific elements of African American culture, which is a culture of ignorance, promiscuity, illegitimacy, violence, and failure. It celebrates, promotes, and perpetuates those negative and destructive characteristics. What we continue to view as the fruits of white racism are in fact the inevitable products of an inferior culture. Those African Americans who reject the central core of African American culture and assimilate into American/Western European culture, who get married before they have children, value education for themselves and their children, hold down jobs, and learn early the value of self-control, lay the foundations for happy and successful lives and they prosper like everyone else. Those who don’t reject African American culture, as well as those of other races who embrace it, fail. The glaring exceptions are those who promote the worst of African American culture through the entertainment and pop culture industries. They are handsomely rewarded for their betrayals. The problem is cultural, not racial.

Well said, #19!! I've been trying to tell people this for years. I have nothing against African Americans per se, but I do have a major problem with the thug culture that too many are entrenched in. I live in Atlanta (the heart of the city) and honestly, it's a daily struggle. From going to the grocery store to the gas station, and everywhere else in between. It's sad.

Once again, we hear from a Democrat how bad we all are and how unforgivable our sins . . . . with no mention the role the Democrat Party played in slavery, Jim Crowe, separate-but-equal, re-segregation of federal civil service, segregation of the military, Japanese-American internment, opposition to womens' suffrage, and opposition to the Civil Rights Act. It literally is the worst-of-the-worst telling us how bad we are.

Well actually Bob, there is an arguement that a practical and factual realization of Black supremacy played a role. You see Bob, as it turns out black Africans proved to be far more capable to survive the rigors of plantation slavery. A black slave cost about fifteen times that of an Irishman like you. It was about how well they could do the task, and they did it better that you or I could. It also turned out that the natives who were also acclimated to the climate and physically could have done the work wouldn't. Wouldn't you know it Bob, tending fields was women's work. Noble savages saved by their misogyny.

Beto could be technically correct, it's all in what your definition of "Supremacy" is. The white settlers from the Plymouth Rock era to the early 1800s had single shot muskets then rifles that quickly evolved to repeating rifles. The indigenous opposition had stone age weapons until they learned how to make deals for firearms by trading buffalo hides but by that time they had been killed off by the thousands and were outnumbered and outgunned by the descendants of the Pilgrims. I'm sure Beto did not reason this out, his intention was to pit Whites against Blacks, just as it is with the other 19 goofballs.

The idea that America was founded *** on *** white supremacy is wrong. White supremacy was not a reason that the colonists came to the New World. You might say that, for some, the idea of Christian supremacy, Catholic supremacy, or Protestant supremacy was a reason for settling the colonies. But white supremacy was beside the point. The first colonists didn't have black people on their minds at all, except in some theoretical sense. Ideas of white supremacy did exist in the world, of course. My guess is that African savages looked at themselves, when confronted by non-African travelers and their equipment and their other inventions, and decided that the whites just might have something going for them that they themselves did not. When comparing the great sea-faring ships of the whites to their own dugout canoes, for example, they might have wondered, "Now why can't/didn't we build that?" Same thing for weapons and even the wheel. No doubt they would have looked at any other non-colored races (including Asians) they encountered and thought the same thing. When confronted with some of the advancements of the Middle Easterners, they might have thought the same thing. They wouldn't have seen the Aztecs or Incas, as the Africans never crossed the oceans on their own. I don't give thoughts to white supremacy as a "foundation" at all.

Trying to actually deport illegal immigrants whom courts have ordered deported is now considered authoritarian. Ken Cuccinelli, a top official at the Department of Homeland Security, made clear that he intended to follow through on President Trump’s plans to remove foreigners in the United States illegally for whom final removal orders have been issued. Cuccinelli said this on national TV on Sunday, and told reporters Wednesday that these operations “absolutely” were going forward. The reader needs to understand the modesty of this undertaking. Nobody is talking about deporting all 10 million illegal immigrants. Cuccinelli isn’t even talking about deporting every illegal immigrant who has been ordered deported by a judge. Cuccinelli

Pete Buttigieg soared from obscurity to third place (at one time) in the Democratic race for the presidency. His candidacy struck me as interesting for about a week. Then, I realized that he’s just another left-wing Democrat, distinguished from the rest of the field primarily because he happens to be gay. And he has fallen back in the polls. Even at its peak, the Buttigieg campaign faced a huge problem — lack of support from African-Americans. One poll I saw had him at zero percent among this cohort. You can’t make a credible run at the Democratic nomination for president with zero percent black support. Things got even worse

The FBI on Wednesday arrested two former senior officials who served in administration of Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, leading the chair of the House committee that oversees Puerto Rico to call for the governor to step down. The arrests also spurred concerns on Capitol Hill about the billions of dollars in aid that Congress has approved for the island. The federal indictment says the former officials illegally directed federal funding to politically-connected contractors. The arrests come about a month after Congress approved a controversial disaster aid bill that earmarked additional funding for Puerto Rico’s recovery from Hurricane Maria in 2017, which were tied up in part because President Trump called

That includes 88% of Republicans, 63% of independents and 52% of Democrats. Most notably, the poll found that 55% of Hispanic voters favor the idea.

I suppose I should be thrilled that the U.S. Women's soccer team won its second world title but I confess to rooting for all their opponents during the games. I don't particularly care for soccer anyway but it was the purple-haired star player Megan Rapinoe who turned me off by spouting her disdain for any White House visit before she was even asked. Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.

(Snip) pay gap is far from just “gender bias,” the reason there is a pay gap between the men and the women is that the men bring in many more fans, and millions of dollars more in revenue than the women’s soccer. The pay gap is about economics, not gender bias.

Joe Crowley (D-NY), a member of the party’s leadership team under Pelosi, in last year’s primary race. The latest spat began on Saturday, when columnist Maureen Dowd of the New York Times reported that Pelosi had disparaged AOC and her allies on the left (original links):

The long-hated “turncoat Republican,” as some describe him, garnered the world’s unanimous rage again when excerpts from journalist Tim Alberta’s upcoming book, “American Carnage: On the Front Lines of the Republican Civil War and the Rise of President Trump,” were obtained by The Washington Post and then described in detail in a piece published Thursday.The excerpts showed Ryan trash-talking the president. Why this angered conservatives is clear. What’s not so obvious is why this also angered liberals.In interviews with Alberta, the former House speaker had described President Donald Trump as an uneducated buffoon
