Beto’s 2020 “Destiny” Story Has Democratic Voters CRINGING

If Beto wants to win over the middle, he’ll need to tone it down with the “mysticism”.

Beto O'Rourke

With only a few big names left to officially announce their candidacy in 2020, Beto O’Rourke has jumped headfirst into the fray…but his reasons why are concerting voters.

Robert Francis O’Rourke, who goes by the Latino-voter-friendly “Beto”, has long been considered a bit of an outlier in the political scene.  His youth and vigor allowed him to stage a number stunts during his failed Texas senate campaign in which O’Rourke skateboarded both around a Whataburger parking lot and onstage at a rally.

His “will-he, won’t-he” wait on deciding to run for the Oval Office is now over, and voters are wondering why it took so long for Beto to commit.

He has answered those questions in an interview with Vanity Fair, and voters are a bit dumfounded.

The wide-ranging interview is the cover story of the latest edition of the magazine, with the 46-year-old boldly declaring he was “just born to do this”.

That’s a bold statement from a man who couldn’t steal Ted Cruz’s Senate seat just months ago.

It gets stranger.

The Vanity Fair piece, written by Joe Hagan, seemed to echo the fawning tone of much of the media coverage that followed his failed bid to unseat Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz last fall.

Hagan, who previously penned a similarly photographed and written profile of another Democrat, former presidential candidate John Edwards, wrote in the new piece: “For O’Rourke, what followed was a near-mystical experience,” referring to his entry into politics.

Voters keen on Beto will need to keep an eye on how his campaign handles the off-putting, “mystical” elements of his “destiny” style piece.

This isn’t the sort of reputation that you want to build in the infancy of your campaign.  One funny Saturday Night Live bit about Beto going to roadside psychics or consulting a crystal ball, and this campaign is sunk.

Save conservative media!

Such a shame…

Hating America has seemingly never been cooler than it is today. It is really sad to see how so many people don’t understand how good they have it, and would rather cause violence and disruption instead of making the nation an even better place. Here’s some of what went down in DC on Independence Day, via TDW: Far-left activists trampled on an American flag in Washington, D.C., on the nation’s 244th birthday.

The activist group wants the DC police department defunded, prison and jails dismantled, and stop and frisk tactics ended — all initiatives they say Mayor Bowser hasn’t invested in.

The NFL is set to play the “Black National Anthem” before all week one games kickoff this upcoming season. The NBA has already said it will paint “Black Lives Matter” on courts. But they’re not stopping there. Check this out, per ESPN: The National Basketball Players Association and the NBA reached an agreement Friday on social justice messages that can be displayed above the numbers on the backs of jerseys when the league resumes play July 30, a source told ESPN’s The Undefeated. The list of the suggested social messages that were agreed upon by the NBPA and the NBA and then made available to players via email, per the source, are: Black Lives Matter; Say Their Names; Vote; I Can’t Breathe; Justice; Peace; Equality; Freedom; Enough; Power to the People; Justice Now; Say Her Name; Sí Se Puede (Yes We Can); Liberation; See Us; Hear Us; Respect Us; Love Us; Listen; Listen to Us; Stand Up; Ally; Anti-Racist; I Am A Man; Speak Up; How Many More; Group Economics; Education Reform; and Mentor. […] After the first four nights, a player can simply go back to their last name. If they choose to continue showing a social message, their name would go below the number. Check out the thoughts of this former ESPN reporter on the George Floyd rioters and looters, via Sporting News: Palmer was offering his thoughts on the protests across the United States in the wake of George Floyd’s death. On Thursday night, Palmer quote-tweeted a photo of a burning building with the caption, “Burn that s— down. Burn it all down.” But shortly after midnight on Sunday, Palmer had a change of tone once protesters showed up closer to where he lived. Here’s Palmer’s deleted tweet: And here’s the follow-up (screenshotted, in case he deletes…
