Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke complains about wealth inequality, yet his wife Amy Sanders O’Rourke is the likely heiress to a vast fortune, according to a report from the Spectator.
Nevertheless, the 2020 presidential hopeful recently tweeted about the level of inequality present in America.
The unprecedented concentration of wealth, power and privilege in the United States must be broken apart. Opportunity must be fully shared with all. We must all have the opportunity to succeed. Together. As one country.

O’Rourke declared that this “unprecedented concentration of wealth, power and privilege” in America “must be broken apart.”
The former congressmen and failed Senate candidate’s campaign has largely been focused on neoliberal pet issues such as higher taxes, climate change legislation, and heavy gun control.
However, O’Rourke has positioned himself as the immigration candidate that supports a more “humane” alternative to President Trump’s policies — better known as open borders.
On top of that, O’Rourke’s platform does nothing to substantially overhaul the U.S.’s tax code, which rich oligarchs and Democratic Party backers like George Soros exploit to their own benefit.
Nor does O’Rourke touch the regulatory state in Washington D.C. which crushes small businesses and keeps many lower to lower-middle class Americans from rising up in the economic ranks. Trump actually passed an executive order that rolled backed a considerable list of Obama-era regulations in order to give small businesses breathing room.
According to the Census Bureau, five of America’s richest counties are located in D.C. suburbs, largely thanks to the unprecedented levels of government growth. None of this is addressed by O’Rourke’s 2020 platform.
After a surprising showing in the 2018 elections for the U.S. Senate in Texas, O’Rourke appears to be one of the favorites to win the Democratic nomination.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
