Former 2020 Candidate: Trump More Racist Than Slave Owners

The statement was simply baffling.

The sheer audacity of American politics these days is a cause for concern.  We are no longer dealing with balanced individuals and benevolent truths.  Instead, we have waded into the murky end of the swamp, and every step forward could be the one that plunges a rusty, jagged edge into us.

This is hyperbole unhinged, with political figures saying whatever comes to their minds at any given moment, hoping to land some sort of violent, vitriolic blow to their opponents with no real concern for what sort of radical whims it will conjure among their followers.

Former 2020 candidate Beto O’Rourke is just such a politico.

“You had the most destructive, hateful, racist president in the history of this country who is literally tearing apart the fabric of the United States of America,” O’Rourke said during a clip at the DNC.

And while that may just sound like the normal Democratic drivel, let’s not forget one important point…

Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, James Polk, Zachary Taylor, Andrew Johnson, and Ulysses S. Grant are reported to have each owned slaves at one point.

O’Rourke has long been a bit of a firebrand for the Democrats, taking extreme positions on several subjects that placed him too far to the left to be a viable candidate in 2020.
