The Democrats running in 2020 are all trying to outleft each other. One of the ways they’re doing this is by crapping all over America and its history.
In the latest example, Beto O’Rourke recently claimed that America was founded on white supremacy.
To make matters worse, he was talking to immigrants and refugees when he said it.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
O’Rourke: U.S. ‘Founded On White Supremacy’
Struggling presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke told a group of immigrants that America was founded on white supremacy at a campaign event on Monday.
“This country was founded on white supremacy. And every single institution and structure that we have in the country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim Crow and suppression even in our democracy,” the former Texas congressman and failed Senate candidate said.
O’Rourke made the remarks during an appearance in Tennessee where he talked with a group of immigrants and refugees. He was asked how he would combat white supremacy as president, which led him to condemn America’s founding.
He is currently struggling in the race for the Democratic nomination. Despite a strong start with excellent fundraising numbers, a weak performance in the first debate has led to low poll numbers. Politico reported he is currently polling at around two percent support nationally, and just one percent in Iowa.

Beto is pandering hard to the left because his campaign is in a free fall.
Reeling O’Rourke seeks a way forward
He got battered in his first presidential debate. His poll numbers have sunk to low single digits. Glowing press coverage has given way to questions about how long he can hang on.
Beto O’Rourke’s candidacy today is almost an inversion of what it was at the start of his campaign less than four months ago. Back then, he bathed in national attention and raised a staggering $6.1 million on the first day of his campaign, while drawing criticism for his light policy footprint and lack of campaign infrastructure.
Today, even as he’s assembled a stable of experienced operatives and released a spate of policy proposals, the former Texas congressman is polling at 2 percent nationally in the latest Morning Consult survey.
One Iowa poll released this week put him at 1 percent in the state. A fundraising machine in his Senate campaign last year, O’Rourke has dodged questions about his latest performance in the money race.
How long before Beto drops out?
