HE'S DONE! Strikingly Small Amount of People Attend Beto Rally, & It's Truly Jaw-Dropping

Linkedin Share

Candidate Donald Trump never held a small rally in 2015 or 2016.

People were interested in what he had to say and things ended up working out for him pretty well.

Failed Senate candidate “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) can’t say the same.

Things aren’t looking so good for him, at the moment.

Former Texas Rep. and current presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke had a small crowd for a campaign event at the University of Nevada Las Vegas on Friday.

Around 35 people here to see Beto O’Rourke at UNLV. The rally was supposed to be held in the courtyard outside, but students told me no one is on campus on Fridays bc it’s mainly a commuter school.

Just over two dozen people?

Yowza.

A professor at @unlv told me this campus is a ghost town on Fridays, but this is a very small crowd for @BetoORourke in Vegas.

Time to call it a day, “Beto.”

Should this guy be allowed to fail his way up? Many Democrats believe so.

In a recent speech, O’Rourke called for the redistribution of wealth, power, and privilege.

WATCH:

Part of Beto’s speech, via Real Clear Politics:

Based on the differences between us of race, ethnicity, geography or religion to keep us apart, to make us angry, to make us afraid of ourselves and of one another. Unrestrained money and influence has warped the priorities of this country. It has corrupted our democracy. It has invited the cynicism and the distrust and the disengagement of millions of our fellow Americans who see their very own government enthralled to those who can pay for access and for outcomes. A vigorous democracy, both political and economic, is the only check against this inertia of power, the only way to free our institutions of their capture and corruption and the only means by which we can lift the voices and the lives of our fellow Americans.

But when – but when the safeguards of this democracy are manipulated by those in power, when members of Congress can choose their own voters, when the supreme court decides that corporations are people and money is speech, when pacts and special interests can buy the outcomes of elections and legislation and when voting rights are not expanded, they are functionally withdrawn, then we run the risk of becoming a democracy in name only. And the idea that we are founded on the principle that we are all created equal, to equal opportunity is justifiably seen as a lie to those who have experienced gross differences in opportunity and outcome when it comes to education or health care or economic advancement or justice.
