O’Rourke: Texas GOP a ‘Death Cult,’ Wants Blacks, Latinos Dead

July 22, 2020

Tuesday on MSNBC, former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke called the Texas GOP a “death cult” that wants “African-Americans” and “Latinos” to do the dying in this coronavirus pandemic.

“We know that Latinos and African-Americans are disproportionately bearing the burden of COVID transmission that is out of control in the state of Texas. This governor, our governor, Greg Abbott, is choosing to allow people to die when he could choose to allow county judges to save their lives.”

O’Rourke added, “This is one of the most craven, callous failures of leadership that I’ve ever witnessed in my life… [W]e have a governor who perhaps is looking at the 2022 Republican primary for the office that he now holds, trying to fend off our lieutenant governor, Dan Patrick, who on Fox News said there are more important things than living. In other words, let’s get on with the dying, knowing full well that it will be those frontline workers making $7.25 an hour, which is the minimum wage in Texas. It will be African-Americans, it will be Latinos and Mexican-Americans who will be doing the dying right here in Texas. This is a death cult, the Texas GOP. Only they want you to do the dying, and that is exactly what’s happening in Texas right now.”

Like all Democrat leadership, O’Rourke is a hateful, clueless demagogue who knows that smearing his opponents as callous racists is the most effective way to address his base. Shameful.
