Bob O'Rourke, Ted Cruz's Irish-American opponent who has culturally appropriated the name Beto to sound hispanic, has been in full defense of protestors taking a knee to the national anthem. Now he's going directly after the American flag.
O'Rourke rented out a Veterans of Foreign Wars Hall in Navasota, TX to hold a campaign rally. According to VFW Post 4006 Commander Carl Dry, O'Rourke's campaign insisted the VFW Hall take down its American flags.
“I do not normally attend rental events, but I attended Saturday to make sure things ran smoothly,” said Dry, who noted there were only two requests he could not allow at the VFW Post. “They wanted to open the doors (to the Flight Deck Lounge) and I couldn’t allow that and they wanted to take the flags down, I didn’t only say no, I said hell no, you don’t take the flags off the wall. I can’t believe any American would ask us to do that and I don’t know why he wanted them down or what he was going to put up instead.”
This seems to be a pattern with O'Rourke. He supports protesting the national anthem, he wants to take people's guns away, and his campaign team sees no problem asking a group of veterans to take down their American flags so he can have an American flag free rally.
This is an instinct thing, folks. When your campaign staff does that, it is a reflection of the candidate himself. It is more and more clear that Bob O'Rourke is not just okay with protesting our flag and national anthem, but he's okay with getting rid of them altogether.
