Skip to comments.Beto Ties Trump to El Paso Shooting
Posted on 08/03/2019 10:00:53 PM PDT by conservative98
Saturday, in the aftermath of the El Paso mass shooting, near the scene, former Rep. Beto ORourke (D-TX), a candidate vying for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination, blamed President Donald Trump in part for the days tragedy.
ORourke called Trump a racist and accused the president of stoking racism, which he said could be a part of the alleged shooters motivations.
Weve had a rise in hate crimes every single one of the last three years during an administration where you have a president whos called Mexican rapists and criminals. Though Mexicans commit crimes at far lower rates than those born in this country, he has tried to make us afraid of them to some real effect and consequence. Attempting to ban all Muslims from this one the day he signed the executive order, the mosque in Victoria, TX was burned to the ground. Those chants that we heard in Greenville, NC Send her back, talking about our fellow American citizens, duly elected to represent their constituents in the Congress, who happen to be women of color.
He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country. And it does not just offend our sensibilities, it fundamentally changes the character of this country, and it leads to violence.

Well, at least a major candidate didn’t say it.
Beatoff, just doing what he does.
Hes got his Kennedy mug all over the news reporting on this
Someone does not want him to quit the campaign?
All the other candidates and all the media will be saying the same thing over the next few days.
Beto was just the first, because he is a local, and could run to the cameras on site first.
Master Beto the wild arm-waver, makes an Inflatable Tube Man at the corner used-car lot look presidential.
Beto is insane.
“Well, at least a major candidate didnt say it.”
They all will by tomorrow.
Can we pay him to cry racism every day about President Trump? The more Irish Bob uses this tired insult, the higher the Presidents numbers get!
IIRC, I made that statement real early today. Expect the rest of the contestants to pile on. Where’s hogg and Shannon t watts and ass-tro-naught margabby kellygiffords.
They’re going to tie this to impeachment.
I’ve taken to calling him Master Beto.
So no white people were killed or wounded? Why would a guy who supported Trump go to WalMart which is supposedly full of Trump supporters?
What Im trying to figure out is why he traveled to El Paso when there are much more active crossings closer to where he lived.
Beto not letting a crisis go to waste...
Maybe this terrorist went close to the border to kill more Mexicans.
I am a very sick person.
