Beto now wants to defend the 2nd Amendment???

Recommended Posts

I get that all politicians are liars, but there are occasions where I'm kind of stunned when one of them is so brazen about their BS.

Case in point, Beto O'Rourke.  He's most famous for failing to win any elected office of importance and for making himself the but of jokes on both sides of the political aisle, but he refuses to give up.

He's now running for Governor of Texas.  You'd think his stance on gun confiscation would be a big barrier in a state like Texas, particularly when he was so definitive about it during the Presidential debates:

“Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

Beto - 2019

 

Astonishingly, he seems to have a different stance now.  Not nuanced, not slightly different...but a total reversal.  When asked about his confiscation comments from 2019, Beto said:

“I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment”

Beto - 2022

 

Yup, he's now a 2nd Amendment champion????

I get that he’s a political zero, but how the fuck could he make such a drastic and abrupt turnaround and think ANYONE would buy it??

Hell, he even contradicts himself in the SAME breath when he (lies) says he wants to defend the 2nd Amendment, but lies and BASHES Abbot for passing permitless carry!!!

“I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment,” he said. “I want to make sure that we protect our fellow Texans far better than we’re doing right now. And that we listen to law enforcement, which Greg Abbott refused to do. He turned his back on them when he signed that permitless carry bill that endangers the lives of law enforcement in a state that’s seen more cops and sheriff’s deputies gunned down than in any other.”

Dude is a pathological liar…

Yep.  That's appalling, even by career politician standards.  Which are pretty damn low.

We saw the same when one term Jimmy Florio ran for governor here in NJ. He stated that we had sufficient gun laws and no more were needed. First thing that walking stool sample did was have his flunkies in the statehouse push through many more. Same s***, different a**h***.

soooo....he's gonna run for an office again, and whomever runs against him needs to play the ever-lovin shiit outta that clip of him saying he's gonna take our shit.

I suspect they'll do just that.

It's friggin TEXAS!!!!

I bet they play the 2019 clip in every political ad and then include the flip-flop quotes.

When Beto loses I'm sure he'll cry about racism/sexism/white-supremacy even though he's a white guy...

Don't trust the guy that "biked to work" after getting dropped of inside the fence by an SUV.

It's all about optics.

"Buttigieg said he rides his bike to work some days, but acknowledged that “it doesn’t do much for my carbon footprint because I have to have a security detail.” He said he does it regardless, for exercise and as “a transportation secretary who is trying to encourage people to bike to work and make it easier and safer for people to do it.”

And this isn't some long trek from his house to the office where he works.  In his mind "riding to work" is the 3 mile trip from his office to the White House (when he needs to go there).

I think you confused Beto with the Male Lactater Buttagedgedgedgedge. Mini Pete did that right after he was made 'Transportation Secretary'. Then disappeared for three months to breast feed.

Or did Beto do that somewhere too?

What, the polling his team did said his stance in 2019 cost him the election and they suggested he use one of his other faces and talk out of that side instead. Normal political practice... </sarc>

Die hard Democrats will believe whatever Democrat politicians say no matter how ridiculous or proof to the contrary.

He's just learning from the script of others: "We would never do anything against the second amendment."

Seriously, why would someone like this even WANT to run for anything in Texas?

To appeal to all the far left Dems that fled Commiefornia and fled to Texas for a better standard of living.  So they can make it just like Commiefornia which they destroyed.
