Beto O’Rourke Threatened by Fellow Politician

Beto O’Rourke Threatened by Fellow Politician


>>Last night during the Democratic debate
in Houston, Beto O’Rourke unapologetically defended his call for a mandatory assault
weapons buyback program. And as a result, a right wing State Representative
in Texas put out a threat against him. State Representative Briscoe Cain said, quote,
My AR is ready for you Robert Francis. Robert Francis is Beto O’Rourke’s legal name. And that is a threat, that is threatening
a Democratic candidate with violence if he follows through with his proposal. Now for those of you who were wondering what
it is that Beto O’Rourke said during the Democratic debate that fired this guy up so much, take
a look at this video.>>The critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and
how would this work?>>I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed
to kill people on a battlefield.>>If the high impact, high velocity round,
when it hits your body, shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed
to do that. So that you would bleed to death on a battlefield. And not be able to get up and kill one of
our soldiers. When we see that being used against children
and in Odessa, I met the mother of a 15 year old girl who was shot by an AR-15. And that mother watched her bleed to death
over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa
and Midland. There weren’t enough ambulances to get to
them in time. Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your
AK-47.>>We’re not gonna allow it to be used against
my fellow Americans anymore.>>Now again Texas State Representative Briscoe
Cain responded to that with my AR is ready for you Robert Francis. And so this morning, Twitter decided to take
that tweet down because it violates their terms of service. Twitter said the tweet from Texas State Representative
Briscoe Cain violated its rules against making violent threats, and that it had removed the
tweet the next morning. So what do you ladies think about this?>>Well, first of all, what is the follow
up to that? Because, yes, we know that that’s the digital
space. But what’s happening in real time around making
a terroristic threat? Because just to be clear, had that been a
person of color, an activist, someone who’s associated with an organization such as Black
Lives Matter, they would have a field day, right, would eat that up. But because this is someone that feels they’re
beyond reproach and that they represent someone like the NRA, who as far as I’m concerned
and San Francisco is, there a terrorist organization. And so, what does that look like in real time? What arrests needs to be made? That’s a threat.>>Yes.>>It is a threat and it’s an incitement of
violence. And this has been, this is not an isolated
incident. There have been more and more of these statements
by public figures lately including Meghan McCain talking about a civil war if there
are any gun regulations passed by Democrats. I mean, it’s-
>>He’s just gonna reach into her yoga pants and pull out a girl by.>>These people, I can’t even, I’m sorry.>>I just think that rhetoric matters. And inciting violence like this is unacceptable.>>It absolutely does, as I was saying in
the break. I’m teaching my students in this Intro to
Human Rights class at the beginning of the semester, torture and genocide. And the preconditions for that, guess what,
are always rhetoric. And it’s always about marginalizing a group
of people and making the threat public and not suffering any sort of repercussions beyond
deleting a tweet. What was really interesting is that directly
after the debates, Trevor Noah said, he commented on Beto O’Rourke saying this and saying, you’re
not afraid of them coming for you with their AR-15’s? And this joke became a reality, literally,
like within minutes. And that shows you just how vile and vicious
these folks are, because they are in the scarcity mindset that they think that the white male
against a government that is not their vision of their choosing, their very narrow vision
and choosing. If they are elected, then they think that
we’re gonna, stash up with the guns and kill them all. Which guess what? It hasn’t happened.>>Which is kinda what they thought even during
the Civil War, it’s happening to this epigenetic beer.>>Yes.>>That if we don’t have some sort of control,
they’re going to come for us and they’re going to overthrow us.>>And guess what, there have been government
buyback programs in the US since 1974. They’ve been done on the municipal level and
they’ve been from like Seattle to Baltimore. So this has happened, and I’m just curious
why people want AR-15s and AK-47s. But for me the curiosity also extends to the
state on an international level. I’m a big-time pacifist. I don’t think anybody should have this military-grade
equipment, including governments.>>Yeah, that’s a great point.>>And it’s so interesting that they wouldn’t
at least open the door for gun reform. So even if you’re not making a bold statement
such as Beto O’Rourke, they’re not even trying to have the conversation. And instead they’re scapegoating other causes
like video games.>>Yeah.>>Yeah.>>And they’re like, this generation-
>>Mental health.>>Doesn’t have respect for I think it was-
>>Godlessness.>>Yeah.>>All this nonsense about, all we need is
more religion in schools and it will solve the problem. No we need gun control.>>A teacher had guns, yeah, yeah. Exactly, that’s how we stop violence.

  • To bring much needed focus to the pivotal issue of climate change, TYT is raising funds to host a Climate Change Town Hall. http://tyt.com/townhall

  • How is it a threat he’s just stating that he’ll defend his property from an unconstitutional seizure of his guns

  • Thank God AK-47s are not used in shootings. But apparently, there are more of them in circulation than I previously thought, owing to laws that were different before 1986, as it turns out.

  • I don't think that chubby sister cares too much for white men. Just sayin.. Does she really think only white men have AR 10's and Kalashnikovs?

  • Wouldn't Beta O'Rourke have had the upper hand in any physical or intellectual engagement while standing on a table or the closest higher structure?

  • Live by the gun and die by gun violence. This is very American. Does O’Rouke think we are civilized?
    I am sure a few will sell their gun through a buy back to pay medical copays or their dental bill.

  • java the hut transgender ernie and Osama bin Laden's daughter good luck aliens oh oh how about his threat to steal my property he has a b & e charge so yea I take that seriously

  • we need to organize we have the right to a militia at the moment we need to use that against these anti America on u.s. soil this soil is sacred

  • You call THAT a THREAT? "My AR is ready for you Robert Francis." What part of that sentence is threatening? I see a statement that simply says that his AR would be ready for him when he got there. Β Please explain what part of that sentence is a threat would you? more ………….

    On another note, it appears that DemocRATS are all ok with threatening Republican voters with violence whenever they go into a restaurant or other place of business. Maxine Waters says it's what all DemocRATS should do. So why is it ok for DemocRATS to threaten violence against Republicans but not the other way around? You DemocRATS a're all hypocrites, every last one of you.

  • YOU'RE ALL IDIOTS IF YOU BELIEVE THESE ARE MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS. The military wouldn't THINK of using such an inferior firearm for use on ANY battlefield. DO SOME RESEARCH FOR A CHANGE YOU MORONS. YOU'RE ALL TALKING OUT OF YOUR ASS. God, it's just amazing how little you people know about any of the things you discuss.

  • Well of course there will be violence if the government tried to disarm the people lol we're not just gonna roll over !! Come and take it the second amendment Shall not be infringed !!
