The Crook, the Kook and the Commie
The Democrats have a nice field of future presidential contenders already. Just wait until the rest of them jump in. In addition to the surfeit of talent there, they have a strong group of up-and-coming young Socialist Congresspeople. To wit:
Beto O’Rourke, who, at just 15-years-old, wrote a riveting “murder fantasy” short story about the joys of running over two children with a car, according to a recently released Reuters report. The same report also revealed that he was a member of a notorious group of hackers called the “Cult of the Dead Cow.” Maybe they ran over the cow with a vehicle, too. Oh well, their farts are bad for the environment. But back to the “murder fantasy,” which he wrote under the pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord.” Beto characterized the murder spree as part of his desire to seek “the termination of everything that was free and loving.” Let’s hope he doesn’t get elected.
He wrote: “Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head. My dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care. It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing more of these 'acts of love,' and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out. The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were. ... I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.”
Well, isn’t that special. Nice guy.
He’d earned the kid’s happiness in his dreams? “Sweet visions” filled his head after running them over? He was in “ecstasy?” Killing kids and others was “an act of love?” Well, we know where he stands on abortion.
And he is beloved of the people and a media darling. Imagine if it came to light that Trump had written something like this in his past. Think it might spend some time prominently featured on the news cycle? Still think the media isn’t biased?
Beto’s pseudonym should have been “Psychotic Warlord.” People literally get investigated for less sickening posts than this on social media nowadays. Where are the calls to ban the sale and possession of automobiles? Yet, he then wrote another piece in which he challenged the perspective of a neo-Nazi who was defending Hitler’s actions. Reuters said of the story: “He took on a self-proclaimed neo-Nazi who maintained that Hitler was misunderstood and didn’t personally want Jews killed. O’Rourke and a Jewish friend questioned the man about his theories and let him ramble about Jews and African Americans, an attempt to let him hang himself with his own words.”
Beto wrote: “We were trying to see what made him think the horrible things that he did.” That question would’ve been better directed at himself. In a sane world, Beto would’ve already hung himself with his own words.
O’Rourke has also been arrested on a burglary charge, but that hasn’t diminished his fan’s ardor. After all, he’s young, many think him attractive, and he’s continually hailed as “Kennedy-esque.” Which is understandable since he, too, attempted to flee the scene of a car accident he caused by driving while intoxicated.
Next there is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a young woman who has called for the abolishment of the automobile, airplane, fossil fuel industry and cow farts, even while being chauffeured around in a large black limousine with her burger-munching advisor. She has a plan to retrofit or rebuild every single structure in the nation, though no idea how to pay for it.
Then we have Bernie Sanders, a free-market-capitalist-hating near-octogenarian who owns three houses, whose wife was investigated for allegedly defrauding a bank, and whose 2016 campaign was reportedly fraught with sexism and harassment.
What’s next, a lily-white woman who thinks she’s Native American and a black man who thinks he’s Spartacus?
Hold on to your hats. We ain't seen nothing yet.
