Beto O’Rourke made an appearance on “All In With Chris Hayes” and was asked if he would vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The Texas Democrat’s answer was crystal clear.
“I would not have. I would not have. We’re 50th in the country, as you said, in voter turnout, by design, on purpose, some people not intended to vote. We need a Supreme Court justice who believes in voting rights. In a state where you can be fired for being gay, [we need] a Supreme Court justice who believes in civil rights” as quoted by the Daily Caller.
O’Rourke then listed several reasons why. Before this moment, he spent the previous 5-6 minutes ranting about various topics as Hayes listened intensely.
Watch his answer in this video.
Unfortunately for O’Rourke, he wasn’t voting, and Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed. O’Rourke can now refer to him as Justice Kavanaugh from this point out.
Kavanaugh faced a smear campaign and baseless sexual assault accusations, but none of them panned out for the Democrats. Six FBI background checks and a new FBI report could not substantiate or discover any evidence that would lead a prosecutor, or anyone else, to believe that Kavanaugh had committed any of the criminal acts he was accused of.
Most people rooting against Kavanaugh likely had no idea who he was until Democrats began their attack, hoping to keep him off the Supreme Court. His confirmation marks a potential power shift that could last for decades and Democrats were highly afraid of the Supreme Court shifting in a direction that could decide their future for a very long time.
O’Rourke is challenging incumbent Republican Ted Cruz for his seat on the Senate. Cruz has pointed out major flaws in O’Rourke’s campaign and ideals.
O’Rourke appears to be a very big fan of Obamacare.
You can watch his full interview with Hayes in this video to get a better idea of what he’s all about.
He mentioned that schools have a pipeline to prison, but that’s a Democrat myth. Schools provide education and the biggest problem with the public school system is the parents at home who refuse to value education. When students come to school from homes with bad parents, then they act up. When those same students get to high school and skip class, without any disciplinary action from home or school, then they fail and often drop out. When those people who had bad parents at home eventually drop out of high school and can’t get a job, or don’t want one, then they resort to crime and often end up in prison. It has nothing to do with the school and everything to do with bad, lazy, irresponsible parents who won’t put their foot down and place value in education.
Another topic O’Rourke spoke about was making every ‘Dreamer’ a United States citizen.
The flaw with this is that his language promotes breaking into the country and could lead to increased numbers in illegal aliens flooding the border.
I guess Democrats need votes, even if they’re illegaly in America.
