Beto O’Rourke says he’s the descendant of slave owners.
How shocked the American public must be to learn that a white dude called Robert Francis O’Rourke had someone in his family who at some point might have been connected with the common practice of slavery.
Beto’s case is also a serious reach.
One can tell that he wants to be descended from slave owners, so he can virtue signal over it. But the evidence he provides for this is spurious.
Like Elizabeth Warren sought to weaponize a Native American sneezing on one of her ancestors once, Beto is weaponizing his slave-owning family past.
He’s the victim, now.
