White males have no future in the Democrat Party. Beto O’Rourke, who just announced his candidacy for the Democrat Nomination for the Presidency, has proven this in two embarrassingly revealing interviews where his whiteness is an admitted liability.

O’Rourke is acutely aware, too, of perhaps his biggest vulnerability—being a white man in a Democratic Party yearning for a woman or a person of color, a Kamala Harris or a Cory Booker. “The government at all levels is overly represented by white men,” he says. “That’s part of the problem, and I’m a white man. So if I were to run, I think it’s just so important that those who would comprise my team looked like this country. If I were to run, if I were to win, that my administration looks like this country. It’s the only way I know to meet that challenge.
“But I totally understand people who will make a decision based on the fact that almost every single one of our presidents has been a white man, and they want something different for this country. And I think that’s a very legitimate basis upon which to make a decision. Especially in the fact that there are some really great candidates out there right now.”

Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke said Friday he’ll be “more thoughtful” when talking about his family after joking on the campaign trail this week that his wife has been raising their children “sometimes with my help.”
“Not only will I not say that again, but I’ll be more thoughtful going forward in the way that I talk about our marriage,” O’Rourke said during a recording of the podcast “Political Party LIVE!” in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, according to CNN.
The former Texas congressman, fresh off launching his White House bid this week, said he would also be more thoughtful in “the way in which I acknowledge the truth of the criticism that I have enjoyed white privilege.”
The Democrat Primary is going to be something to watch, where the Democrat candidate who attacks whiteness the most will prevail. In an act of prostration, even O’Rourke has declared his own whiteness a near disqualifying liability… but he’s to desirous of attaining power to get out of the way and allow true diversity to take over (as if he believes he is somehow exempt – by identifying and admitting his whiteness as an unearned privilege – from the racial takeover of the Democrat Party).
There’s no getting off this ride…
