With that, we bring you an editorial by Jake Highwell:
“This country was founded on white supremacy. And every single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery, and segregation, and Jim Crow, and suppression,” Robert Francis “Beto” O’ Rourke, July 9, 2019.

Unless I am missing something, which I do not believe, I am, it seems like Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is advocating for the replacement of the United States of America.
First off, this sort of anti-white and anti-American rhetoric is commonplace amongst liberals who make up the modern Democratic Party. The days of John F. Kennedy and the sensible Democrat are long gone. What has filled the vacuum left by sensibility is a melting pot of racially-charged socialistic angst that is hell-bent on erasing history and replacing America with a progressive utopia.
Progressive utopia. Or perhaps an inverted Third Reich? It is easy to laugh at the likes of Beto O’Rourke and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when they come out and make asinine statements. The problem is that their rhetoric is resonating with a good portion of the populace. It is not just the far left who are making these sort of comments.
Left out of hyperventilating coverage:
This would just reinstate the citizenship question removed by the Obama Administration.
Not only do Democrats want to open our borders to anyone who wants to come in, they don’t want to know who’s already here!https://t.co/PBr55dR0en

It is racism. No doubt about it. I consider myself a sensible person. I have never judged a person on their skin color or sexual orientation. I have been friends with all sorts of people. I have had staunchly conservative friends and others who love Bernie Sanders and AOC.

History is not the only thing that is trying to be replaced by left. A 1930s mural in Oak Park, Illinois was painted over in April because it had too many white people and lacked diversity.
Diversity and inclusion. Those are the buzz words. The Beto O’Rourke quote echoes those two tenets. It is those two tenets that will be used to demonize whites, Asians, legal immigrants, Christians, Conservatives, Jews, heterosexuals, and any other group that is deemed in opposition to diversity and inclusion.
The next time a progressive liberal spouts hatred speak up and meet the challenge. The time for fear has passed. We must confront this threat with peaceful rhetoric. It is time for the silent majority to rise to the occasion. To rise up to defend life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all people, not just a select few. That is true diversity and inclusion. The aspects that make this country so great and has inspired countless heroes to lay their lives on the line to defend it.
