Is Beto O’Rourke Trying to Sabotage the Democrats (Again)?

I am starting to wonder if Beto is a Republican plant.

In 2018, O’Rourke squandered Democrat resources in Texas. In fact, both Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum could have benefited from some of that money. Claire McCaskill could have as well in Missouri.

But Beto stockpiled cash and kept it, only to lose to Cruz. His fundraising inarguably deprived other Democrats of resources they could have used.

Now, on stage at the Democrat debates, Beto is helping Democrats be defined as radical America hating gun grabbers. He insists the nation is racist and unrepentant in its racism. He insists the Democrats are going to grab everybody’s guns and the crowd goes wild.

This just provides fuel to the GOP fire that the Democrats are too radical to be trusted with power.

Beto is, two election cycles in a row, brilliantly helping the GOP and playing to their narratives. Given how much media attention Beto has been given and how many fawning profiles the press has written about him, it will be hard for the Democrats to distance themselves from him.

This helps Donald Trump.
