Skip to comments.O’Rourke: Cruz and Trump Are Pushing ‘Bulls***’ Fear And Paranoia
Posted on 04/03/2018 6:16:25 PM PDT by MarvinStinson
Texas Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Beto O'Rourke said Tuesday that President Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz are inciting fear in Texas voters and called that "bullshit."
O'Rourke got to that word after dodging a question on the progress of a Texas ports bill he said he's working on with Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas).
"So why hasn't it happened, Congressman?" interviewer and Tribune CEO Evan Smith asked.
Instead of answering, O'Rourke said, "Let me tell you what the president and our junior senator are doing right now."
"They want you to be afraid of Mexicans. When they call them rapists and criminals and say only a wall will keep them out," he said.
He then condemned them for scaring Americans about Muslims.
"When they try to scare you about what Muslims are going to do if you give them the chance to come into the country, and it's Cruz saying we should send police patrols into their neighborhoods and Trump saying we should keep them out altogether," he said.
He also condemned them for "trying to scare" Texans on gay couples adopting kids in Texas and transgender kids using their preferred bathroom.
"They are trying to push you based on fear and paranoia and anxiety, and that, Evan, is bullshit. And we've got to be bigger, stronger, and more courageous than that. And I know we are," he said to applause.
O'Rourke is mounting a bid to knock off Cruz in the 2018 election. He raised a strong $6.7 million in the first quarter of 2018.
Illegals, muslims and gays.
A democrat saying repubs are pushing bull***, etc?
Wow. Soooo much ignorance, stupidity, and...basically...leftist loonism in one article.
Can this guy win in Texas? I sure hope not. (Unless it includes Austin, I suppose)
Rallying Americans is not “scaring” them.
It is the Democrats who say American can’t win are the ones who are fear-mongering.
From the Bullkrat Party.
He’s going to make Wendy Davis look like a strong contender by comparison. He’s already signed on to a semiauto ban in the House. Suicide for a state-level race here.
Beta O’Cuck, the Stalinist Douche.
Sounds like the kid in Florida.
Maybe Beta can invite Lil’ Hitler Hogg to come campaign for him. That’ll go over really well in Texas.
...O’Rourke is mounting a bid to knock off Cruz in the 2018 election...
I find it hard to believe that Texans would vote for this BS artist.
Boy, that is saying a lot!
Illegal Mexican laborers have stolen millions of dollars off my family’s table over the last decade.
Fear them? No, but I loathe them with a passion you can’t imagine.
I’ve seen several Beto signs in my neighborhood in Dallas. The on Cruz sign was shredded-or course. I don’t put much stock in that because Cruz suppoters just don’t put out signs because they get vandalized by the lefty criminal loons.
Does he know he’s running in Texas?
I’m not afraid of illegal aliens, Beto, but they do commit crimes at twice the rate that citizens do.
Texans need to keep this homo out of the Senate.
Looked him up. Oh yeah, another Ken Doll. The one thing the Dems get better than we do, is phony, good looking young men who will lie until next Tuesday just to get elected.
I hate nobody. I do hate what people do. Illegals, Muslims and Gays are a segment of society that is co-opted by the left to fundamentally destroy this country.
