Democrat Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke is the left’s darling in Texas.
He regularly spews the radical left’s rhetoric.
But O’Rourke just crossed the line when he said this about our police.
Beto O’Rourke was invited to a townhall meeting at Prairie View A&M University in Texas.
During the event he slammed law enforcement calling it “the new Jim Crow”
“Talking about criminal justice reform, let’s talk about where this problem started. When contractors needed labor, they would talk to local law enforcement who would arrest African-Americans for idling, for petty crimes, frivolous offenses. Those contractors would describe the number of bodies that they needed and law enforcement would provide those bodies… in a system that was radically unjust, following what we thought was the end of that injustice at the end of the civil war.
That injustice, to many more people here than I know firsthand, continues to persist today. That system of suspecting somebody, solely based on the color of their skin; searching that person solely based on the color of their skin; stopping that person solely based on the color of their skin; shooting that person solely based on the color of their skin; throwing the book at that person and letting them rot behind bars solely based on the color of their skin, is why some have called this, I think it is an apt description, the new Jim Crow.”
Without providing any evidence, O’Rourke is accusing our law enforcement of perpetuating injustice.
But this is typical behavior for Democrats.
Democrats like O’Rourke use victim storylines to push their radical agendas.
It should also be noted that Beto O’Rourke has had a run-in with the police in the past.
In 1998 O’Rourke was arrested for driving while under the influence of alcohol after causing an accident.
The truth is, Democrats like O’Rourke won’t stop playing the identity politics game pitting groups in society against each other.
