‘Beto’ Whines About ‘Wealth Inequality,’ Doesn’t Mention His Filthy Rich In-Laws

His party backers are fat cats too.

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.

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.

Ironically, conservative commentators like Michelle Malkin and Lou Dobbs have pointed out that mass migration will worsen the inequality that O’Rourke complains about due to depressed wages.

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.

Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”

Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.

Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.

Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
