I&rsquo;m a Christian and a conservative and I am tired of Democrats running down our country. Beto O&rsquo;Rourke is the latest Democrat candidate for president to bash America by proclaiming that the United States was founded upon &ldquo;white supremacy.&rdquo; I don&rsquo;t deny that America has its flaws and dark moments in her history, but those don&rsquo;t define who and what we are. We are all about freedom. How do Democrats like O&rsquo;Rourke think this will get them elected? &mdash; Red, White, and Cool<br />\n Dear Cool:<br />\n Robert Francis O&rsquo;Rourke is fading in the polls and is struggling to be relevant after a horrible debate performance. While Beto was out on the campaign trail he made this star spangled statement: &ldquo;I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that 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, even in our democracy.&rdquo;<br />\n Wow, what a jaded view to have, but the Democrat primary is a battle for the far left of the party and making shocking statements is the only way O&rsquo;Rourke can hope to get any coverage and traction for his lead balloon campaign. Sadly, I believe most of the Democrats secretly share this shameful sentiment.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n Just when I was getting tired of politics and about to shut down everything including FOX News, Nancy Pelosi and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez get into a feud and reel me back in. Ocasio-Cortez actually implied Pelosi was a racist, which is hysterical. A leftie calling another leftie a racist &mdash; how does it feel Nancy? &mdash; Laughing in Louisiana<br />\n Dear Laughing:<br />\n Sadly the term and or implication of racism is thrown around so often by the left that it dilutes and demeans the victims of true racism. But I agree with you that it&rsquo;s amusing to watch Democrats use their vapid argument of racism and identity politics against each other. Don&rsquo;t forget that Kamala Harris practically called Joe Biden a racist during the first debate.<br />\n AOC said the following when referring to Pelosi, who is trying to keep her party unified: &ldquo;When these comments first started, I kind of thought that she (Pelosi) was keeping the progressive flank at more of an arm&rsquo;s distance in order to protect more moderate members, which I understood,&rdquo; Ocasio-Cortez told&nbsp;the Washington Post, &ldquo;But the persistent singling out ... it got to a point where it was just outright disrespectful&nbsp; ... the explicit singling out of newly elected women of color.&rdquo;<br />\n Don&rsquo;t get me wrong, I&rsquo;m no Nancy fan as the speaker has spent her Washington career labelling Republicans and conservatives as racists at every turn. That being said, San Fran Nan may be a lot of things but she&rsquo;s no racist, which makes Ocasio-Cortez&rsquo;s retort so silly. However, this spat illustrates how immature AOC is and also how the race card and victimhood is the knee jerk reaction of Democrats no matter who they&rsquo;re battling. Pelosi has her hands full and understands that the &ldquo;squad&rdquo; is highlighting how far left the party has veered and could cost Democrats everything in 2020 including the Speaker&rsquo;s gavel.<br />\n AOC fails to see that it isn&rsquo;t her color and gender causing her problems, it&rsquo;s her idiotic tweets and statements that are giving Pelosi heartburn. The AOC squad acts like they just got elected to their high school student council and think they have the right to storm into the principal&rsquo;s office and demand control of the school. Well Principal Pelosi just slammed the door in those little girls&rsquo; faces.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:<br />\n I was appalled at the conduct of the U.S. Women&rsquo;s Soccer Team after their world cup win. It was classless and unbecoming &mdash; and whoever is the president shouldn&rsquo;t justify that kind of obnoxious behavior. But even more dreadful was the Democrats&rsquo; race to politicize and pander and stick it in President Trump&rsquo;s eye. &mdash; Disgusted in Decatur<br />\n Dear Disgusted:<br />\n I agree, and the politicization&nbsp; by team captain Megan Rapinoe has caused me not to care about women&rsquo;s soccer. I expected the Democrat pandering as much as the world expected the favored American&rsquo;s victory.</p>\n<p> Email your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.</p>\n', created = 1574023585, expire = 1574109985, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:72a064c42e5b74f1ff54dc595fc82b2c' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
