One of the biggest takeaways from Thursday’s Democratic presidential debate on ABC, was that the radical left wasn’t shy about telling the public what their plans for guns were. At one point, former Congressman Beto O’Rourke (TX) was raging and promised: “Hell, yes, we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” It was a radical declaration that went under-discussed during CNN’s post-debate analysis and didn’t seem to concern anyone on the panel.
ABC Democratic debate co-moderator David Muir on Thursday offered seven questions on guns and skirted around the main one: Will your plans violate the Second Amendment rights of Americans? For the most part, Muir simply wondered how forcible gun confiscation “will work.”
Democrat presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign would like to stop all fake news … except for the disinformation that Beto himself brings to the table. The campaign got angry after a rumor was spread on the internet that the Odessa shooter supported O’Rourke Campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon (a 2012 deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obama) tweeted that the campaign was “entirely helpless to stop misinformation.”
On Monday morning, in the aftermath of a mass shooting spree in Texas from the weekend, CNN personalities were again pushing for more gun laws, including "universal background checks." CNN's three-hour New Day morning show discussed the issue in four segments, and only had guests with left-leaning views on the issue of gun control. Not only did liberal Republican contributor Ana Navarro slam the NRA and declare that she was "sick" of politicians giving "thoughts and prayers" instead of passing more gun control, CNN contributor Andrew McCabe made the questionable claim that "universal background checks" might have prevented two high-profile mass shootings as he repeated the myth of the Charleston loophole.
Like an adolescent seeking attention, Beto O'Rourke, desperate for any hook to hoist his pitiful polling position, has resorted to puerile vulgarity. O'Rourke has glommed onto the issue of mass shootings as his last, best shot to salvage his drain-circling candidacy. O'Rourke was a guest on CNN's "State of the Union" this morning. Guest host Dana Bash began by playing a clip in which O'Rourke, addressing a group yesterday regarding the shootings in Texas, called the situation "f---ed up." CNN bleeped out the vulgarity. But when Bash invited O'Rourke to comment on the situation, he again spoke of it being "f----ed up," and this time, CNN didn't bleep it.
As if Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke doesn’t have enough to worry about as he craters in the polls, a staffer working in his campaign caused an embarrassing incident on Tuesday by ejecting a reporter who was covering the event for a conservative news website. O’Rourke -- whose full name is actually Robert Francis “Beto” O'Rourke -- was addressing a rally in South Carolina when a person on his campaign staff told Breitbart News Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak to leave the event because the right-wing website is walking a line “between being news and a perpetrator of hate speech.”
Sorry but running for the U.S. Senate is just not good enough for me. On Thursday, presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke attempted to reboot his failing campaign with a major speech in which he rabidly attacked President Donald Trump but may have ended up shooting himself in the boot. That is the conclusion of liberal Washington Post political reporter Aaron Blake who proclaimed himself disgusted by the massive hubris displayed by O'Rourke's speech in El Paso when he stated that running for the U.S. Senate is not important enough for him.
After two mass shootings took place within hours of each other last week, the Sunday panelists on the Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz discussed the concept that people in the media accused President Trump of being responsible for the shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. Our friend Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist went so far as to state that people in the media blamed Trump and his supporters for the deaths, which is “completely beyond journalists’ responsibility and a real turning point for the worst in American discourse.”
All of MSNBC’s far-left fantasies came true Wednesday afternoon when reporter Jacob Soboroff got 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke to label President Trump a “white supremacist” – he didn’t exactly have to twist the left-wing politician’s arm. The impromptu live interview occurred in the 4:00 p.m. ET hour, causing Deadline: White House anchor Nicolle Wallace and her liberal panelists to be overwhelmed with joy.
A ghoulish Stephenie Ruhle on Tuesday promoted the idea that 2020 Democrat Beto O’Rourke could use the mass slaughter in El Paso this past weekend as a way to gain “momentum” for his floundering presidential campaign. She wondered, “Beto has said he is running in the name of decency and democracy. As bad as this may sound, could this moment be a chance for Beto to gain some momentum?”
On Wednesday, all three network morning shows wailed about President Trump daring to criticize former Democratic Congressman and 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke. However, none of broadcasts had any problem with the wildly irresponsible rhetoric that O’Rourke and other Democrats have employed since the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio over the weekend.
The New York Times’s lead story Monday morning was of course the mass murder of 29 people in two mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso. The second paragraph cast some blame at “angry words directed at immigrants...by right-wing pundits and President Trump.” The theme of Monday’s paper was to tie President Trump to the El Paso mass murderer. Peter Baker and Michael Shear’s “news analysis,” “In Texas Gunman’s Manifesto, An Echo of Trump’s Language,” handed flailing Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke (and several other Democratic opportunists) a microphone to blame Trump.
