Beto O’Rourke Says America Was ‘Founded On White Supremacy’

Published

on

Former Democratic Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke levied some harsh criticism towards the country he is seeking to lead.

During a campaign stop in Nashville, Tennessee over the weekend, the 2020 presidential candidate told a group of immigrants and refugees that America was founded on white supremacy and that the country remains institutionally racist today.

“This country was founded on white supremacy,” O’Rourke said. “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 has made racial justice and open immigration policies a pillar of his presidential campaign. The former lawmaker supports decriminalizing illegal immigration, tearing down existing border fencing, and amnesty for illegal immigrants currently living in the country. Additionally, O’Rourke has stated that its time for the U.S. to “take a hard look” at slavery reparations.

Once believed to be a front-runner for the Democratic presidential contest following a Senate campaign, O’Rourke’s team has hit lagging poll numbers.

A CNN poll released after the first round of Democratic presidential debates showed O’Rourke polling at 3%.

A version of this story appears on the Daily Caller website.

      Totally agree. This con artist will say and do anything. He has no moral compass going back to his teenage years. With his track record I would keep quiet. Yes, the Founding Fathers came to America to get away from religious tyranny. That is why America is the land of the free and the fair. Not bigoted democrats whoa re trying to turn America into a 3rd World dump! The Country was built on the Bible, hard work and loyalty .

    Beto is a pathetic, lying, do and say anything to be elected, He is always low rating America! If America is so bad why millions want to come here? Also why this pathetic scum has never left? All these Demo-rats do is lie, promise everything and accomplish nothing, divide Americans to keep power! They are promising to raise taxes, open borders, give everything free to illegals, take away people’s guns, government run medical, and offer nothing to Americans,

    Beto is truly an idiot. Can’t believe he was campaigning in Mexico!! All is knows how to do is skateboard and spend his wife’s money. I’m ashamed he’s from Texas.

  • Where did this douche bag come from? I believe it was WHITES that settled this country you hump! If this freak of nature is so concerned about White privilege, donate ALL you wifes’ wealth to the poor . make a difference Beto. Your chance of being President is as likely as me being the next pilot for Air Force One.
