"Beto O'Rourke, the Dangerous Fake." By Donna Garner
Excerpt: I am a Texan, and we Texans know a true left-leaning Democrat when we see one. Please believe me when I say, "Beto O'Rourke is one!" Beto is not "born to do this" as he stated in the recent edition of Vanity Fair where he told about his decision in glitzy and glowing terms to run for the President of the United States. What is Beto O'Rourke really? He is a huge but dangerous fake. Robert Francis O’Rourke (a.k.a., Beto) has no Hispanic blood in him and is a fourth-generation Irish-American. When young, the Spanish nickname Beto was given to him to differentiate him from another family member. Even though he chose to go by Robert or Bob in college, his politically savvy father told him to change his name back to Beto to gain political stature when he returned home to largely Hispanic El Paso. [Even though Beto's father died in 2001, his advice lived on when Beto decided to use his vast campaign funding from people outside Texas to pay to have his one word "Beto" blood-red campaign signs planted all over Texas six months before the 2018 mid-term elections to establish name recognition, particularly with Texas Hispanic voters.] Of course to set the scene for Beto to run for the Presidency on the Democrat ticket, the leftist media has to explain away the fact that he went to an elite boys’ boarding school and to Columbia University in NYC – both very expensive ventures. The media must try to figure out a way to make Beto look as if he is a common man who relates to the downtrodden -- not someone who comes from "White privilege." The facts indicate that he actually came from a wealthy family with lots of political pull and with possible ties to the El Paso/Mexico cartels. [No wonder Beto "loves" free trade with Mexico!] Because Beto exhibited early signs of rebellion against societal norms, had several altercations with the police, misbehaved frequently, lacked self-control, and was involved in alcohol/drug abuse, his step-grandfather (ex-military) wanted to “rescue Beto from himself” by sending him to the elite boys’ boarding school for the last two years of high school. He graduated from Virginia's Woodberry Forest School in 1991. Beto graduated from Columbia University in 1995, and he was arrested soon after that for committing a burglary at the University of Texas El Paso with two other people.
