In the wake of the two mass shootings in Texas and Ohio, a disturbingly old and familiar reaction has arisen, pointing the finger. Despite the bodies of the dead not even being cold yet, the political agendas of eager, power-hungry, narcissistic hopefuls shine through like a fog light on a dark evening. Front and center in this embarrassing and disrespectful effort is the former Representative from Texas Beto O’Rourke.
Beto is barely a candidate for the Democratic nomination. His unnatural “youthfulness” has failed to catch on in the polls, as he languishes in the bottom of an already packed Democratic Primary group. So what’s the correct course of action to ignite his stagnant campaign? Perhaps push a new agenda which could benefit the American people? Bring forth some fresh ideas that the youth could rally around? Try to bridge the gap between the ever polarizing sides of Right and Left? NOPE! Instead, Beto decided to go with the old tried and true method of exploiting tragedy and calling people names.
Beto’s twitter account started it off. On August 5th Beto wrote: “This President, who helped create the hatred that made Saturday’s tragedy possible, should not come to El Paso. We do not need more division. We need to heal. He has no place here.” Somehow Beto failed to see that by not allowing someone in El Paso would cause division. That someone being the democratically elected President of the Constitutional Republic, In which Beto happens to reside. Excluding people from things is inherently divisive, yet Beto’s level of hypocrisy and naivety did not end there.
Donald Trump responded to Beto in typical Trump fashion with a tweet of his own. “Beto (phony name to indicate Hispanic heritage) O’Rourke, is embarrassed by my last visit to the Great State of Texas. Where I defeated and trounced him and is now even more embarrassed by polling at 1% in the Democrat Primary, should respect the victims & law enforcement & be quiet!” Some might say that it was the right thing for Trump to respond, but in the end, he gave Beto what he wanted, some much-needed press.
In Beto’s response tweet, you can almost imagine him salivating at the opportunity to play a hero in this new narrative he has created for himself. ” El Paso will not be silent, and neither will I, twenty-two people in my hometown are deceased after an act of terror motivated by your racism. “
Finally, in an interview conducted by MSNBC, Beto broke out the big guns. When Beto was confronted and asked if he thought the President was a white supremacist, he responded with, “He is. He has made that very clear. He tore down and dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the bulk of people here. He’s been clear who he wants to keep out with walls and cages and militarization and torture and cruelty.”
Let’s start the epic movie slow clap for Beto. When the polls have you down, call some racist. There is also a lot that must be done about mass shootings in this country, and it’s a serious discussion we should be having with serious people. Beto is spitting on the graves of those shot in this tragedy for his gain, and it is disgraceful. Pointing fingers is childish and leads nowhere, yet it has become the currency of a fake victim culture which has cropped up in recent years.
The bottom line is crazy people tend to do crazy things. Not one soul on the left seems to be discussing the fact that the shooter in Ohio was a vehement Trump hater and was supporting Elizabeth Warren. Was it Elizabeth Warren’s fault that there was a shooting in Ohio? Of course not, because that’s an insane statement and so it blaming Trump for Texas.
Let’s use this as an argument. When Mark David Chapman got arrested for the murder of John Lennon, he famously had a copy of Catcher and The Rye on him. Which had the handwritten inscription, “To Holden Caulfield, From Holden Caulfield, This is my statement” He had purchased that specific copy of the book that day. Using Beto’s logic, it would be fair to say that J.D. Salinger is a Nazi. Also shouldn’t be allowed to mourn the death of John Lennon. For that matter be allowed to listen to anything the Beetles have ever released. (Paul McCartney solo work is okay.)
Beto is not a genuine person and does not care about anyone but himself. Standing on the backs of dead people is something that has happened in politics for years. But in this age of transparency, wouldn’t it be better if we all agreed to stop playing schoolyard games? In the end, these three things will happen: Beto’s minor “bump” from this will fade. He will go on to make thousands of dollars doing lectures and liberal arts schools across the country and writing a horrible autobiography. Trump will continue to be Trump, and this won’t affect his chances of re-election in the least. And there will still have been two senseless shootings with dozens of people dead. Maybe it’s time to have an essential and sophisticated conversation instead of pointing fingers.
