Anyone else sick of people blaming this mysterious “white male privilege” for their troubles?
Oh for the love of everything in this world. Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Robert O’Rourke put his tail between his legs and became a beta male on the set of The View as a way to relaunch his campaign.
How? Just that horrible white male guilt that every white male has to feel because feelings. Instead of giving credit to hard work for where he is now, he “acknowledged that his background and position of white male privilege has helped him advance in his career.”
White. Male. Privilege. Is anyone else sick of white males having to apologize for their race and sex?
Give me a break. He expects this to relaunch his campaign? Because we all want a sad little man as the leader of this country.
Hate President Donald Trump all you want, but he does not take crap from anyone nor does he apologize, especially for his race and sex.
Leftist co-host Joy Behar asked O’Rourke if his Vanity Fair cover came off as “elitist,” even though I’m pretty sure President Barack Obama had his face plastered all over magazines in 2008 and 2012.
For some reason, O’Rourke agreed as he cowered before the women. From The New York Times:
In the Vanity Fair profile, which appeared on the eve of his campaign announcement in March, Mr. O’Rourke made his ambition clear. “I want to be in it,” he told the magazine. “Man, I’m just born to be in it, and want to do everything I humanly can for this country at this moment.”
On Tuesday, Mr. O’Rourke sought to qualify that comment. “I have my work cut out for me to be a better person and ensure that I’m more mindful to the experiences that others have had,” he said. “I was attempting to say that I felt that my calling was in public service. No one is born to be president of the United States of America, least of all me.”
Co-host Meghan McCain mentioned one of O’Rourke’s gaffes, which infuriated me. He said that after he lost his Senate bid he traveled across the country alone and only “sometimes” helped raise his children with his wife.
Okay, yes, it was a joke, but McCain noted “that a female candidate wouldn’t be able to get away with.” She asked him if he can get away with a lot more because he is male.
Here’s the thing. O’Rourke did not get away with that stupid comment. People on the left and right threw criticism at him for saying that. Did O’Rourke point that out? No, he whined about that mysterious privilege he and other white males enjoy.
Behar brought up the criticisms, which led O’Rourke to admit that he “deserved it” and explained he meant to show “that his wife had the ‘lion’s share of the responsibility during this campaign.'”
Something tells me this will not help O’Rourke “relaunch” his campaign. I do not know about you, but I do not want a spineless male or female to lead this country.DONATE
