This is the Only Thing Beto O’Rourke Will Be Taking From You Now

Don’t expect to hear too much from former Texas Congressman and failed presidential candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke any time soon.

The decline of the Beto phenomenon was truly something to watch. It was especially interesting to see how his treatment by the mainstream media changed over the course of his brief time in the political spotlight. In 2018, he was the next big thing — the next Barack Obama. When he was running for Senate, he was the man who could do the impossible: flip Texas blue. Suddenly, when he was running against the likes of Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Joe Biden, Beto faded into the distance.

This sudden shift in importance became particularly clear when Beto made himself a single-issue candidate. No one cared about his tax policy anymore — because all he talked about was taking our guns away. Remember: Democrats used to deny wanting to do this, but Beto put it all out there.

Perhaps this was Beto’s big mistake, and one of the reasons why the media and the DNC suddenly wanted nothing to do with him. He said the quiet parts out loud, and you’re not allowed to do that as a progressive.
