Beto O’Rourke to African-Americans, Latinos: ‘Death Cult’ GOP Wants You To Do The Dying

Failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke launched an unhinged attack against Texas Republicans saying they are content to see minorities die due to the coronavirus pandemic.

O’Rourke, who typically analogizes everything the GOP does to Nazi Germany, all but accused Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick of attempting to murder people.

The governor has said a shutdown in his state could be avoided if residents continue to wear masks and as long as case numbers trend in the right direction.

Abbott, Beto said, is “choosing to allow people to die when he could choose to allow county judges to save their lives,” suggesting it is “one of the most craven, callous failures of leadership that I’ve ever witnessed in my life.”

He pointed to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose state far-and-away leads the nation in the number of deaths from COVID-19, as someone “guided by the facts and the science and the truth.”

Minorities Will Be Doing the Dying?

If you don’t get motion sickness from watching Beto’s head-bobbing in the above video, you’ll see that he then focuses his attention on  Patrick.

O’Rourke takes issue with the Lieutenant Governor’s assertion that life has to go on – even during a pandemic.

“My message is that, let’s get back to work, let’s get back to living, let’s be smart about it, and those of us who are 70-plus, we’ll take care of ourselves,” said Patrick. “But don’t sacrifice the country.”

Beto’s response, as you might expect, was hyperbolic and completely lacking in facts.

“In other words, let’s get on with the dying, knowing full well that it will be those frontline workers making $7.25/hr … it will be African-Americans, it will be Latinos …who will be doing the dying,” he claimed.

“This is a death cult. The Texas GOP,” O’Rourke continued. “Only they want you to do the dying, and that is exactly what’s happening in Texas right now.”

Beto Isn’t Bright

O’Rourke’s comments pivot seamlessly between ‘frontline workers’ and minorities being the unfortunate victims of coronavirus.

But the Texas Tribune in 2015 provided statistics indicating those frontline workers are predominantly White.

“Texas may be a majority-minority state, but minorities are largely underrepresented among the state’s health care professionals, according to new figures published by the Texas Department of State Health Services,” they reported.

No one demographic would be affected more than the other in Beto’s example where only essential workers continue on.

Not to mention, what are those people struggling to get by on $7.25/hr going to be making during a shutdown? Roughly, give or take, $0.00.

“Ultimately Beto is just not a smart person,” Tom Elliott, editor of Grabien Media writes.

An understatement to be sure.

  • If the GOP wants minorities dying, then why did most of those deaths occur in Democrat-ruled cities and states? Well Francis? It seems you are long on accusations, but very short on answers. Cowboys refer to that as "All hat and no cattle." But you are a typical Democrat, so I wouldn't expect anything else from you.

  • Really? And where did you get that piece of info? You've been reading the Nat'l Enquirer again, I see. Try plugging in to REALITY, and drop your unintelligent "WISHFUL THINKING". You do like to spew your bias, don't you? And by the way, there are MANY minorities in the GOP, oh uninformed one, but you don't want to hear that....
