Over the weekend, Beto O’Rourke launched what is either his third or fourth campaign relaunch. He’s back out on the campaign trail after staying in El Paso as he ran to any and every television camera to call President Trump a racist and call for more gun control for the last two weeks.
Now, the failed senatorial candidate is really going after the support of the far, far left of his party. In an appearance in Arkansas, Beto launched in a self-righteous diatribe as he called the United States a country founded upon racism which is still alive and well today.
Our country was founded on racism—and is still racist today. In Arkansas, I said why I believe there’s no denying this reality; and why it’s on all of us to change it. pic.twitter.com/cHLKmCMGEB

Has the United States always been perfect? No, of course not. But the United States has done more to free oppressed people around the world than any other country that has ever existed. Americans are the most generous people in the world But O’Rourke doesn’t see it that way.
Much like those in his party, O’Rourke sees everything through the prism of race and color.
But if he wants to talk about an organization with a checkered past when it comes to race, maybe he should look into the Democratic Party.
