Beto O'Rourke, No More Mr. Nice Guy
Beto suspends his election to comfort the people of El Paso
Beto cut his campaign short in Nevada and head to El Paso, not just the place he grew up in, but the place where a young man with years of life left in him, chose to follow the road of hate, the hate and divisiveness coming from the White House was clearly written in his manifesto.
This built up hate over someone of a different race, who had never done anything to him; who didn't even know him. He plotted his massacre and drove from Allen, Texas to El Paso to commit mayhem. There we thousands of people in the mall and at Walmart when this gunman opened fire and destroyed the lives of so many.
To think, Thank God that they stopped him before he could have taken more lives is an understatement. This could have been so much worse.
Domestic Terrorist attacks thousands of innocent people
As people in America were waking up with the tragedy of El Paso on their minds, they began to hear about another domestic terrorist act in Dayton Ohio, where 9 people were killed and 16 were wounded or injured.
Then today alone, three are arrested before they could commit an act of violence against their fellow man. What they all had in common, was hate and age. All in their early to mid 20's. There is a pattern here, they are being prayed upon by racists. Someone who just finished school or didn't and is unsure about their future? Prime pickings for organizations that push hate.
Donald Trump was not wanted in El Paso nor Dayton
Donald Trump showed up in El Paso and Dayton, to what looked like an opportunity to campaign. Selfie shots, thumps up and let us not forget the comparison of crowd size from the dueling rallies between Trump and Beto O'Rourke.
Trump even had the family of the orphaned baby bring him in for a photo shoot. He just lost his parents and the family was mourning their loss and Trump was more concerned with a photo op.
No more Mr. Nice Guy
Beto O'Rourke spent the last two weeks, mourning and consoling the people of El Paso and making it known that Trump's rhetoric has got to stop, most of all his hate mongering. Beto was quoted as saying "Trump rhetoric on race played a role in this and every other shooting."
Beto is angry and so are most American's. Beto says he's tired of Trump attacking people of color in his tweets. "He is a racist and stokes racism in the country. It fundamentally changes the character of the country and it leads to violence."
Beto is determined to fight for the end of senseless gun violence. Beto left El Paso and went to Arkansas, where he attended a gun show and talked to people about the gun laws he will pass as president and talked to them about their fears about losing their guns, security, safety and their 2nd amendment rights. To make a law that everyone can live with, he is making sure to understand the issues on both sides.
Surprisingly, the polls show that over 60% of Americans want background checks. Red flags data base (national, not just local), a ban on assault rifles and more. America is strong, but right now, it's afraid of the Domestic Terrorism in our country and it's increase.
Beto O'Rourke has said he will not give up the fight, he will not step down and run against John Cornyn in Texas. He will fight to make a difference for everyone.
