Beto O’Rourke made history a few years ago when he said “Hell yes” in response to a question about whether he’d come for everyone’s guns. It made people not want to vote for him because, well, most Americans like to hold onto their Second Amendment rights.
O’Rourke hasn’t figured out that he’s not the kind of person Americans want to see hold public office. He had a failed attempt to become a senator. He also had a failed attempt to be the Democratic candidate in the presidential primaries. Now, he’s decided that he’ll try to run for the governor of Texas.
We’re talking Texas here, folks – where there are more gun owners per capita than any other state. And Beto O’Rourke is just going to come in here with his gangly stature and his goofy smile and claim that he’ll come for guns. Most Texans are gonna laugh right into his face when he tries to take their guns. They’ll give up their rifles and their shotguns over their dead bodies.
Well, it seems that O’Rourke has finally gotten the message. He has realized that gun confiscation is a no-go for Texans, so he’s changing his stance as quickly as he can.
O’Rourke isn’t the only candidate for governor. He has to go up against Greg Abbott, the current governor. Abbott certainly has some enemies in the state. However, the staunch Republican has also done a lot of good – including standing toe to toe with Biden over the southern border crisis and keeping American freedoms in place throughout the COVID pandemic.
Abbott is also maintaining a double-digit lead over O’Rourke.
The state is still very much red, despite how many people from blue states have immigrated in the past few years. Many from blue states may even choose to vote red simply because they don’t want to see traces of past failures haunt them again.
O’Rourke is going to have to prove to Texans that he’s not the far-left progressive that he has claimed to be in the past. To do this, he has to change the way he feels about guns.
He’s done such a 180 about the issue that he’s now working to defend the Second Amendment. He recently told supporters in Tyler, Texas that “I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment.”
It seems that he’ll say anything if it means getting voters to like him.
This is great that he’s not going to try to come for our guns anymore, but it’s also led to a lot of confusion. How can he claim he wants to come for our guns one day and say that he wants to defend the Second Amendment the next?
We don’t really know who Beto O’Rourke is, what he wants to do, or what he’d be like as governor. Not knowing the motives of a candidate is dangerous. Joe Biden told us what he was going to be like, and he’s done just the opposite. So, if there’s one thing that we’ve learned, Democrats are inconsistent in their messaging. They’ll say whatever they think will get them the most votes.
Beto O’Rourke isn’t going to win the governor’s seat. There simply aren’t enough Republicans who believe that he’s willing to defend anything. And, let’s remember that O’Rourke is pro-migration – and that means a lot more illegal immigration at the southern border.
Perhaps O’Rourke should give up politics once and for all. Then, he doesn’t have to worry about convincing anyone that he’s a genuine guy with Americans’ (or Texans’) best interests at heart.
