If you’re on the internet, you are probably familiar with the “Nobody said anything” meme. The meme begins with a “nobody: …” and then out of nowhere comes a non sequitur. Nobody said anything and so Beto O’Rourke came out apologizing for his ancestors having owned slaves. In his defense, this could be like how Michael Scott wanted to control the media narrative before the narrative controlled him. But the narrative that perhaps Democrats have latched on to is that Beto O’Rourke comes from a wealthy family, married into an even wealthier family who also happens to be descended from slaveowners, and is Bobby Newport from Parks and Rec. So with his campaign struggling, but perhaps still organizationally viable, Beto O’Rourke confessed to his ancestors’ crimes, but in doing so, went full Swalwell.
Beto O’Rourke writes:
In the aggregate, slavery, its legacy and the ensuing forms of institutionalized racism have produced an America with stark differences in opportunities and outcomes, depending on race.
For example, there is 10 times the wealth in white America than there is in black America. Black men are six times more likely to be incarcerated than white men. The disparity in infant mortality between black families and white families is greater today than it was in 1850. Whether it’s the economy, healthcare, education, criminal justice or even in the inherent biases revealed by technology, there really are two Americas.
I benefit from a system that my ancestors built to favor themselves at the expense of others. That only increases the urgency I feel to help change this country so that it works for those who have been locked-out of — or locked-up in — this system.
As a person, as a candidate for the office of the Presidency, I will do everything I can to deliver on this responsibility.
In addition to making significant changes to education policy (immediately address $23 billion in underfunding for minority-majority public schools), economic policy (ensuring equal pay, deploying capital to minority- and women-owned businesses, $25 billion in government procurement to these same businesses), healthcare (universal healthcare and home health visits to women of color to reverse trend in maternal and infant mortality) and criminal justice (police accountability, ending the drug war, and expunging arrest records for nonviolent drug crimes), I will continue to support reparations, beginning with an important national conversation on slavery and racial injustice.
We all need to know our own story as it relates to the national story, much as I am learning mine. It is only then, I believe, that we can take the necessary steps to repair the damage done and stop visiting this injustice on the generations that follow ours.
There’s a lot to break down here. The first I want to tackle is the statement about the two America. The two Americas he is talking about is not urban vs rural or red vs blue. It’s the Oppressors and the Victims. This dichotomy is foundational in social Marxism or what we more commonly refer to as Leftism. So I wanted to point out the Freudian slip before diving into the self-emasculation.
The closing paragraph is where Beto O’Rourke takes responsibility for the offenses of his ancestors. He acknowledges that he is on the side of the Oppressors by virtue of being born. This is exactly what Eric Swalwell did. If you recall such winning campaign messages, “being bold, without the bold” and “pass the mic.”
Eric Swalwell is not supposed to be a special case. He is the outcome of social-Marxism for regular straight white males. Intersectionality paired with social-Marxism places a low value on being a straight white male. A straight white male is supposed to embrace his low standing. Eric Swalwell is the epitome of this, and Beto O’Rourke is following suit. Joe Biden self-emasculated himself to not upset the victimology of Kamala Harris. It’s worth noting that Beto O’Rourke may just be attempting to scarf up the (nonexistent) Swalwell base in the primary race. The Democrat Presidential Primary Bracket has Beto O’Rourke, if we are to judge that he won his first matchup, facing off against Beto O’Rourke, so perhaps, in my bracketology, I anticipated this:
It’s A Cult
As Andrew Klaven perfectly explains, the goal of feminism is to make women second rate men and to make men second rate men. Eric Swalwell is the end game of intersectionality for straight white males. It’s a cult, and Swalwell is a low ranking member trying really hard to reach level three of fifteen. In this cult, everyone will be stripped of individuality for the sake of the collective. Collectivism. Conformity. Communism. It’s all social-Marxism fighting on multiple fronts of victimhood in the Culture War. Look at his policy proposals, all of them are his attempts to atone, not better our society. To Beto O’Rourke, this isn’t about justice, this is soteriology. This new rebirth of Marxism is a cult and the only way for straight white men to be saved is self-emasculation, going full Swalwell.
