Beto O'Rourke says he and his wife are descended from slave owners

Beto O'Rourke says he and his wife are descended from slave owners

Quote:
White House hopeful Beto O'Rourke (D) on Sunday revealed that he and his wife, Amy, are descended from slave owners.

The former House lawmaker from Texas wrote in a Medium post that he was recently given documents showing that his paternal great-great-great grandfather listed two women, Rose and Eliza, as his possessions.

"That those enslaved Americans owned by my ancestors were denied their freedom, denied the ability to amass wealth, denied full civil rights in America after slavery also had long term repercussions for them and their descendants," O'Rourke wrote.

While I believe this story is possibly true, this guy is the type of person that would lie about his ancestors actually owning slaves. Most people would try to hide it or not acknowledge it, Beto tries to score political points. He's the worst panderer I've ever seen run for President.

They say an Italian might try to take your head off, but an Irishman is more likely to start at your feet and work his way up to take everything

"listed two women, Rose and Eliza, as his possessions."

Maybe he was a pimp?

When is the next "Comedy Hour"? I'm sorry, I meant the next Democrat presidential debate.

How long until all of the democrat candidates have ancestors who owned slaves? It seems to be the new hot thing no matter how statistically improbable. I mean very few Americans actually owned slaves.

Democrat party is the slave party and has always been the slave party since Andrew Jackson.

As mentioned in a previous post. There was the so called “Big Switch” in that “all” of the racists in the D party went to the R party. The “Big Switch” is the big lie. The most successful subterfuge in history has been the racists Democrat party getting Black Americans to support them and blame Repubs for the state of the inner cities that are in fact controlled by Democrats. Truly amazing feat of lies and subterfuge brought to you by DNC.

In a new poll, Beto the furry is polling at 0.0% in New Hampshire lololol.

I can't recall ever seeing someone who blew up like a rockstar politically and then immediately cliff dove and tanked this badly. The media propped him up big time when he was running against "Lyin' Ted", and the incredibly favorable coverage and incredibly punchable opponent blinded a lot of Americans to how badly this guy sucks.

All you have to do is look at the Civil Rights vote of 1964 to know that is garbage.

I really thought he was the future face of the Democratic party after nearly stealing Texas from Ted. Young, half decent looking, charismatic enough, ran a better national campaign than a Texas campaign. And then like you said, just sh*t the bed since then.

I think his biggest problem is that he's in the modern identity obsessed democrat party. Look how he has to twist himself into a pretzel to escape the designation that he's just a privileged white boy who had everything handed to him on the platter of white supremacy.

Beto can't be his true self in the party so flails about trying to be something else. This is going to make him look indecisive & a flip flopper.
