Beto O’Rourke’s Cavalier Use of the F-bomb on the Campaign Trail

Beto O’Rourke’s Cavalier Use of the F-bomb on the Campaign Trail

“what the f*** are these guys doing in Washington DC?”

Rep. Beto O’Rourke is Sen. Ted Cruz’s Democrat challenger in the upcoming midterm race.

Despite being a Congressman, O’Rourke has poised himself as a D.C. outsider, much like Cruz did in 2012. Contra to Cruz’s polished, poised self, O’Rourke is scrappy and irreverent.

So much so, that The Texas Tribune put together a montage of O’Rourke firing off F-bombs on the campaign trail.

And not this kind of F:

But back to O’Rourke. Here’s a montage of him cursing like a sailor.

Which really just reminds me of the opening sequence in Office Space:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Wouldn’t be surprised if some Hollywood director coached him to curse so that us “ignorant redneck hicks” would relate to him.

“Trump is the new black” he said.

Except instead of understanding Trump’s actual appeal to voters, the Left is merely mimicking their fantasy narrative of Trump the Vulgar.

    Does he kiss his mommy with that mouth???????

      A lot of the millenials I’ve been around think that this is how you show you’re “tough” or “serious”. Everyone but them looks at this behavior and says “oh gawd, another idiot millenial thinks he’s acting tough”.

He can’t fix his teeth, but he can fix America. (Besides, what’s broken besides the likes of Bucky Beto?)

For you, Bucky:

I ride a bike through the local neighborhoods. A few miles into my route, there is one house with a red Prius parked in front and a Beto sign in the yard. Every time I zip by there and the Prius is gone I wonder if they’re buying oil free baked vegetable chips at Whole Foods.

I can’t wait until November and this doofus is back in El Paso or wherever the hell he decides to go to find a new job. I’ll get a nice laugh going by that naked yard.

    Naked yard? I live in Austin and on my daily walk through my hood I still see “I’m with her” posters. Along with those idiotic “In THIS house we believe…” signs.

      Those “Hated has no home here” signs.

      I assume that they mean Trumps’s hatred has no home there, but their hatred for Trump is alive and well.

      Ha. Well, yeah. Weirdos gotta weirdo.

Oh, how edgy. The. Most. Boring. Word. Ever.

    Also the most overused. A sure sign of a small mind and a smaller vocabulary.

    It is also a sign of disrespect for any in the audience who might not like casual use of expletives in public. Just plain bad manners.

Since even words like “fuck” are used conversationally, at least in the US and UK, surely they’ve lost the power to trigger a negative response in a listener – especially as far as younger adults are concerned? Not according to a new paper published in the Journal of Language and Social Psychology. Melanie DeFrank and Patricia Kahlbaugh, at Southern Connecticut State University, found that teenagers who swear casually were judged by college students as being less intelligent and less trustworthy.

Beto may be older than a teen now, but the optics remain. What impresses the kids of high school age and/or maturity doesn’t impress everyone else, kid.

The art of swearing depends on having the wisdom for when to use it and when not to. You’re not there yet, Beto boy.

    Agree. The left is terrific at bastardizing all language, not just neutering curse words. Either they are terrible at understanding what happens when that happens, or they don’t care. Maybe both. All they care about is setting the rules, which change when the next rule-setters take over. Every rule-setter thinks he can do it better than the previous one.

    Civilization burns to the ground.

    No matter how many times I hear the F-word, I hate it more than any other word in any language. I don’t cuss but I put up with people using curse words because that is the way people are (some anyway) but I will always hate the F-word. It is the most vile, disgusting, and filthy word in the English language, at least to me. It signals to me that the person who continually uses it doesn’t have the intelligence or the knowledge to express themselves without using it.
    Many people occasionally let slip the F-word, that’s one thing and I understand, but those who use it in practically every other sentence is what I’m referring to.
    I don’t castigate or berate anyone that uses profanity or especially the F-word, I just hate the word. I’ll leave a movie or turn off a TV show if it ends up being like that. So many good movies or shows abuse the F-word for no good reason and I just hate it.
    That’s all.

This Democratic public swearing has run its welcome mat.

He would be near perfect if he just had a pussy hat on /s

One idea with which I was raised was that there are over a million words in the English language making it to be language with the largest vocabulary ever. If you cannot manage to convey your thoughts adequately without having to resort to a handful of vulgar curse words, then you are making a far greater statement about your own intellect and such that what you are trying to say with words.

“Contra to Cruz’s polished, poised self, O’Rourke is tacky and irrelevant.”

Typos fixed for ya! 😉

Napoleon Dynamite grows up and learns swear words. Oooo, how cool and outsider he is to use vulgarity like an immature child. People swear, but you don’t want that in public speeches. Go Beaver go, fade into obscurity.

Like most millennials, Beto has neither the intellect nor the experience to be a Senator from Texas (or anywhere else, for that matter). Having received a fundraising email from Lizzie Pannill Fletcher, I put both her and Robert Francis (“Beto”) in the same category as Alexandria Ocasio Cortez- they all know the slogans and the buzz words, but none of them can tell you how their slogans will fix what is wrong in this country. In reality, they neither know nor care, they just want to get elected.

And you expect something classier from a Commiecrat,er Communist.

Reminds me of Rush’s depiction during the 2004 campaign of John F-ing Kerry.

The word is becoming so common that it is no longer a “bomb”.

TO MANY use that word for my taste, without thinking? It sounds like bunch of field(construction) hands, Which I was one. IT is just to nasty sounding for my taste. TRASHY MAYBE? That is more like it. Trash in trash out.

Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s boys were often told that crying was for girls and to “stop crying or I’ll give you something to cry about”. Unfortunately, swearing became a substitute for “unmanly” emotional expression. Of course, that’s total #$%@! but that’s just the way it was then.

Perhaps someone ought to ask Beta if he needs to have a good cry or simply “why are you crying, Beta?”

And I hope Cruz calls him “Beta” – and when he surely objects, reminds him who the Alpha dog is in the race.

The likes of Bucky crazy-eyed ortega, Fauxcahontas, hillary klinton, obama, have become long in the tooth.

Best. Election. Ever.
