Beto O’Rourke Drops Bombshell About Connection To Slavery

Where’s the liberal outrage?

Published

on

In a move that should, if the left were consistent, spell the end of his political aspirations, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke revealed that both he and his wife are descendants of slave owners.

Yes, a consistent application of the beliefs of the modern-day progressive should see Beto dropping from the race and spending the rest of his life attempting to atone for the sins of his ancestors.

Probably not going to actually happen though. You know, because hypocrisy or something.

The failed Texas Senate candidate, who is losing ground in the presidential race, made the revelation in a Medium post, saying that he was recently given documents that revealed his family’s past.

“A paternal great-great-great grandfather of mine, Andrew Cowan Jasper, owned these two women in the 1850s,” O’Rourke wrote. “There are also records showing that a maternal great-great-great grandfather, Frederick Williams, most likely owned slaves in the 1860s (“most likely,” because we are not certain that the Frederick Williams who is my ancestor and the Frederick Williams who owned slaves are the same person, but there’s enough circumstantial data to lead me to conclude that it’s likely).”

“Records also showed that Amy had an ancestor who owned slaves and another who was a member of the Confederate Army,” O’Rourke added.

O’Rourke’s claim comes after the media last week tried to tie Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s opposition to reparations to the fact that his great-great-grandfathers owned slaves. When the media tried to push that narrative they were met with the fact that former President Barack Obama’s ancestors were slave owners.

Sen. Kamala Harris’ ancestors also owned slaves. So where is all of the classic liberal outrage over these folks having this sort of bloodline? Surely they would have no problem striking at these kind of folks if they were Republican, so what gives?

Oh. That’s right. You get a free pass these days if you have the right ideology. It’s okay to say and do heinous things so long as you hate Trump and support the murder of unborn babies in the womb.

Sickening, isn’t it?

Save conservative media!

Ilhan Omar’s Housing Plan Costs $1 Trillion; Includes Provisions For Undocumented Immigrants

Published

on

Controversial Congresswoman Ilhan Omar announced her affordable housing program, which will cost $1 trillion, revealing that it includes provisions for illegal immigrants. Omar revealed the “Homes for All Act” on Thursday, which would go hand-in-hand with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal by creating 12 million housing units by ensuring they were all built to the highest environmental standards. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In her announcement, Omar, 38, explained that her affordable housing plan would ensure that no one is denied access to public housing, no matter their gender identity, race, sexuality, or immigration status. https://twitter.com/Ilhan/status/1197515008982310912 “We will prohibit any discrimination against residents based on sexual orientation, gender, criminal history or immigration status,” Omar explained, later adding, “Doing the Homes for All really gets us closer to having the America I imagined be realized and I’m really excited for the opportunity to now be in a position of influence to get that done.” This would break from the Trump administration’s affordable housing policies. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson announced in May that undocumented families would be denied taxpayer-funded housing in order to make room for citizens in need of public housing. Omar, who first arrived in America at the age of 12 as a refugee, has noted that the sight of folks living on the streets had a profound impact when she came to this country. Ever since, she has vowed to fight for making housing a human right. https://twitter.com/IlhanMN/status/1197530827741110272 Omar did not provide any information on how the program would be funded.

DNA Test Results Reveal Hunter Biden Is Father Of Arkansas Woman’s Child

Published

on

DNA tests results have “established with scientific certainty” that Hunter Biden, son of former Vice President Joe Biden, is the father of an Arkansas woman’s baby. The woman filed a motion on Wednesday concerning the DNA results. The filing says Biden is “not expected to challenge the results of the DNA test or the testing process.” Here’s more from CNN: Hunter Biden had denied in a previous court filing that he had fathered the child, but agreed in October to a paternity test. Neither Joe Biden’s campaign nor an attorney for Hunter Biden immediately responded to requests for comment. It’s the latest development to thrust the former vice president’s son into the spotlight as Joe Biden seeks the Democratic 2020 presidential nomination. The news came just hours before 10 Democratic contenders met in Atlanta for a debate. Hunter Biden has been the subject of scrutiny in recent months over his business dealings in Ukraine. President Donald Trump’s efforts to convince Ukraine’s President to investigate the company that had reportedly paid Biden as much as $50,000 per month to sit on its board is the subject of the House’s impeachment probe. There is no evidence of wrongdoing on the part of either Biden in Ukraine. Lunden Alexis Roberts, 28, filed the lawsuit back in May asking for child support and health care for the baby, who was born in August of 2018. Roberts’ legal team’s latest filings say that Biden’s family members are eligible for protection by the Secret Service. Roberts petitioned the court to seal any information concerning the identity of the child.
