Beto Desecrates Small Town Church
Beto holds rally in Whitesboro church turned venue.
In his quest to desecrate everything Texan and holy, Robert Francis O’Rourke held a rally in a former Whitesboro church.
Now known as “The 1906 Venue,” the former church was the venue choice for Beto. It felt ironic this rally was being held at a church, but, more on that later. Lots of local residents were upset at the venue choice, which is also Whitesboro’s oldest landmark.
Before going in, we made bets on the color shirt he was wearing.
Counter protestor presence was strong. There seemed to be about 200 people outside protesting the rally and only about 150-200 people packed inside the small church. We estimate about 1/3rd of those in attendance at the rally were not there to actually support Beto.
Demographics inside were interesting, lots of older people were present inside the venue and the majority were women. There were only a handful of young people.
Beto started the event addressing veterans which is odd considering his base is very anti-veteran. His speech went on about making sure veterans have access to mental health care and so on.
He was also wearing his normal uniform of disgusting sweat drenched blue shirt.
He hit all his usual talking points, gun control and red flag laws, raising the minimum age to purchase firearms. A man asked Beto if he believed the second amendment’s purpose was to oppose a tyrannical government and Beto said no that’s not the purpose.
Lots of teachers were present and he spoke about raising teachers salaries and supporting teachers. He also spoke on reforming foster care.
And of course he talked about “women’s rights” which is just a fancy set of words for “baby murdering.” Beto was always careful to avoid the word “abortion” and just use words like “women’s bodily autonomy” or their “right to choose.” He refused to define when he thought life began in the womb.
The grossest moment was when all the women stood up and cheered for killing babies, in a former church. With the stained glass cross glowing in the background. Weird. Gross. God help us.
Not sure why all the old women were excited about abortion…we imagine child-bearing is not in their future.
Overall, Beto seemed to have toned himself down for the place he was in. We know that when he’s in Austin or Denton he is much more aggressive.
He’s not trailing too far behind Abbott in a Quinnipiac poll. 48% of voters said they support Greg Abbott and 43% of voters said they would vote for O’Rourke. Although, as we all know, the polls mean nothing and usually sway left.
Abbott has his work cut out for him since Republicans and Democrats alike aren’t too keen on him being Governor again after his handling of COVID and the winter storm of 2021.
And don’t sleep on the power of dark money. O’Rourke’s campaign got $1 million in donations from George Soros.
O’Rourke just reported fundraising $26.7 million, $2.7 million more than Abbott.
He will continue his tour across Texas and end in Denton on September 7.
