Beto Makes the Texas School Shooting About Him by Crashing Gov. Abbott’s Press Conference

Beto Makes the Texas School Shooting About Him by Crashing Gov. Abbott’s Press Conference

Way to make a tragedy about you, ROBERT.

Wannabe big-timer Robert O’Rourke crashed Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference about the school shooting at Robb Elementary School.

The mayor went off on Robert.

Robert said the shooting was totally predictable and preventable.

He’s not wrong because the shooter, Salvador Ramos, made numerous social media posts about his plans and desires:

Salvador Ramos, 18, started posting on Facebook “approximately 30 minutes before reaching the school,” Abbott said of the teen, who did not appear to have a criminal record.

“The first post .. said, ‘I’m going to shoot my grandmother.’ The second post was, ‘I shot my grandmother,’” Abbott said. “The third post, maybe less than 15 minutes before arriving at the school was, ‘I’m going to shoot an elementary school.’”

“Sick SOB” pretty much sums it all up.

Beto said the shooting was totally predictable and preventable.

It sure was. If they had been monitoring his facebook they would’ve found that he was going to shoot his grandmother about 15 minutes before it happened. And about 15 mintues later he posted that he was going to shoot up a school.

He did not have a criminal record or any record of mental illness.

    Milhouse in reply to Peabody. | May 25, 2022 at 4:50 pm

    Exactly. The only way for the authorities to have predicted and prevented this would have been to have the sort of police state that is constantly spying on everyone, monitoring everything we write, tapping our phones and reading our email and watching us on the street. No, thank you. If that’s the price for preventing such shootings, I’ll take the shootings.

      NotSoFriendlyGrizzly in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2022 at 7:18 pm

      Milhouse, I oftentimes find myself in opposition to your opinions. Not because you’re wrong and I’m right, but just simply we have a difference of opinion. But this time, I’m 100% in agreement with you.

      chrisboltssr in reply to Milhouse. | May 26, 2022 at 1:31 am

      Exactly correct. We always want the police to be reactive. The minute they are proactive you are no longer a free people and you better hope you are armed.

      Dimsdale in reply to Milhouse. | May 26, 2022 at 7:32 am

      Social media is social monitoring. And subjective censoring, of course.

    JOBBOSS in reply to Peabody. | May 25, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    And where is this “Facebook Police” supposed to come from? We don’t have a criminal surveillance society and unless a person is put under court supervision, there’s no way to “monitor” what they do, say, or intend.

      NotSoFriendlyGrizzly in reply to JOBBOSS. | May 25, 2022 at 7:21 pm

      Well, actually, there is. But it is incredibly intrusive, illegal, and unconstitutional. However, while I have never worked for the NSA directly (I have been subcontracted via the companies (some)) that I’ve worked for, I can tell you that they have the capability. Do with that what you will.

      RandomCrank in reply to JOBBOSS. | May 25, 2022 at 7:24 pm

      FB’s moderation is done by artificial stupidity. Those people don’t actually alert authorities, or at least I have never heard of them doing it. Not to mention the rampant advertising of stolen merchandise and other scams in their “Marketplace.”

      henrybowman in reply to JOBBOSS. | May 25, 2022 at 8:36 pm

      Facebook did its job.
      The kid posted, “I just shot my grandmother.”
      They passed it to their disinformation checkers, and indeed, he had just shot his grandmother.
      So no need to censor THAT post.
      What’s for lunch?

      smalltownoklahoman in reply to JOBBOSS. | May 26, 2022 at 5:10 am

      About the only way to do that I can think of would be with bots that forward posts to the proper local authorities. However given how dumb bots can be I would expect an a** ton of false reports that would give any law enforcement agency an aneurysm.

    Sisu in reply to Peabody. | May 25, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    “… the shooting was totally predictable and preventable.”

    beto’s attendance and performance adds to my suspicion that every one of the recent “sole actor” atrocities are in fact “psych ops” by the government (primarily demonrats and deep state) to create a “useful crisis” as a distraction from all other recent failed (withering) and current crises and causes of stress in the domestic US society.

    Regardless, as the manner in which this tragic event ended proves again – a firearm in the hands of a responsible, trained, focused individual ends the violence.

    Hopefully the voters in Uvalde, Texas and across the US will reject this demonrat charade and indignation directed at all those who continue to strive to live their lives as if “free”.

    P.S. beto should resign and forfeit all pay and lifetime benefits.

      Milhouse in reply to Sisu. | May 26, 2022 at 1:45 am

      Resign from what? He holds no office.

        Sisu in reply to Milhouse. | May 27, 2022 at 9:33 pm

        Milhouse, You need to get out of your ALF more or are a “milk container poster” of a “troll”.

      Dimsdale in reply to Sisu. | May 26, 2022 at 7:35 am

      Agreed on the “psych ops.” How likely is it that these types are groomed and prodded to the point of action by “anonymous” internet individuals for political purposes?

      Kind of like the FBI (FIB) in the crowd on J6…..?

        Sisu in reply to Dimsdale. | May 27, 2022 at 9:41 pm

        And, now we know more, including DPS chose not to engage when the threat was out side and then entered the school – No Duty to Protect Individuals, Only Society At Large.

        The irony is that all those “new domestic immigrants” to TX have no better “government” than from where they left; and, clearly the “police unions” still determine “law” and who “shall live and die”. …

        No comments before “Millhouse” divines and proclaims his perfect insights.

Colonel Travis | May 25, 2022 at 2:42 pm

What an egotistical, insensitive prick.
Can’t wait to vote this jerk out of existence this fall.

RandomCrank | May 25, 2022 at 2:47 pm

I hardly ever name objects, but my AR-15s are exceptions. I named the first one Hillary because the bitch didn’t want me to have it, and when I inherited the second one a few months ago I named it Beto because the bitch will never get it. LOL

You know what MIGHT have stopped this?

Armed security at the school.

This murdering fuck WAS NOT A STUDENT, he showed up at the school (on the run from the police) and started shooting.

Any bullshit from Democrats about guns that doesn’t include armed security at the schools is just the sick fucks exploiting dead children for politics.

So, was Francis in favor of eliminating armed school security 2 years ago like a lot of other Democrats?

Another hysterical female, from the Hysterical Female Wing of the fascist Democrat Party.

Ban trannies, not guns.

    Milhouse in reply to slagothar. | May 25, 2022 at 4:52 pm

    There is no indication that this guy was a transistor radio — or a transsexual. It’s all sick rumors made up by sick people who have nothing better to do, and spread by gullible fools who will latch on to anything.

      Mercyneal in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2022 at 5:02 pm

      Look at his photos

        CommoChief in reply to Mercyneal. | May 25, 2022 at 5:29 pm

        Goth/Emo? A disciple of Santa Muerte?

        I’m Gen X and and my Daughter just graduated HS last year in El Paso. Many of the kids in that 85% + Hispanic city dress …oddly to my eyes. I can only imagine what older generations might think. The kids sometimes wear eye shadow, yes the males. It doesn’t make them trans.

          RandomCrank in reply to CommoChief. | May 25, 2022 at 6:08 pm

          I have to chuckle about the eyeliner thing. Come on, kids, teenagers have been doing shit like that long before anyone was shooting up schools. No one’s heard of the “goths” or the “horrorcore” phenomenon, complete with makeup?

          That kid was a lost and lonely soul, raised by a combination of an drug addict mother than a felon grandfather, and a grandmother. We can only read between the lines, and therefore might be wrong. I see a kid who wanted to belong, and who wasn’t raised with even basic social skills. It went down from there.

          The foregoing isn’t any kind of excuse. Far from it. The kid deserves the death penalty. Still, reducing this to phony accusations originating with the lying nutcases of 4chan is errant trash that serves no purpose whatsoever.

          healthguyfsu in reply to CommoChief. | May 25, 2022 at 8:49 pm

          Many kids dress oddly regardless of race and geography. They look ridiculous and don’t even know it….but shock value and social media points so….

          CommoChief in reply to CommoChief. | May 25, 2022 at 9:23 pm

          RC/healthy

          That’s my point if I wasn’t clear. The advent of social media spreads info, style, culture faster and further than previous generations. I was part of the generation where cable TV boomed. Kids always rebel at least a bit.

          One minute later I’m watching MTV and seeing how kids dress in LA and NYC and London; teenagers in rural south Alabama saw Billy Idol and Madonna and Prince and went wild trying to copy them. Today they emulate each other, posting photos, tic toc vids and exchange info among themselves instantly. The pace of change and fads doesn’t have any latency or lag. Nothing really wrong about it and it doesn’t mean a kid is trans because he wears makeup; odd maybe, rebellious perhaps or maybe that’s the social group he finds himself fitting into.

          RandomCrank in reply to CommoChief. | May 25, 2022 at 9:29 pm

          It’s been almost 50 years since I graduated from high school. We had kids doing shit like that back then. More generally, there’s always a teenage cohort that does the androgyny thing.

        Milhouse in reply to Mercyneal. | May 25, 2022 at 5:34 pm

        What photos? The photos you refer to are without any basis in fact, being circulated only by some sick and crazy people.

          SDN in reply to Milhouse. | May 26, 2022 at 7:40 am

          You can’t trust photos without detailed analysis. The deepfake technology is too good.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | May 26, 2022 at 4:01 pm

          These weren’t deepfakes. Some sick f***s just took some random photos off the net and circulated them with the deliberate lie that they were the shooter, and a lot of stupid gullible fools believed them and ran with it. Including some right here.

      irv in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2022 at 5:13 pm

      But how would you know (before the autopsy) if he was a transistor radio? This is an insidious issue that has not been properly addressed.

        henrybowman in reply to irv. | May 25, 2022 at 8:40 pm

        I’m qualified.
        I’m an electrical engineer.
        I can tell a transistor radio.
        If it’s not a transistor radio, I can recommend a consulting biologist.

      jhkrischel in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2022 at 5:24 pm

      So, I think you’ve got two narrative wars going on. There’s indication that he had a lisp, and wore makeup, and was teased for it. And then there are a bunch of obviously fake photos attributed to him as a tranny.

      If “these photos are fake” narrative takes hold, future real evidence of his genderfluid sexuality will just be dismissed as a hoax. Smells like the same playbook as “the kraken”, where you push an obvious lie and call people on it, while the less glossy truth gets overwhelmed.

        RandomCrank in reply to jhkrischel. | May 25, 2022 at 6:11 pm

        Only one photo is authentic, and neither suggests nor proves anything. The rest were swiped from a tranny’s Reddit page by the nutcases of 4chan.

The Twitter army is out trying to get their full mileage off of this already. No shame in that grifter game….as Obama would plagiarize from his unofficial mentor, never let a crisis go to waste.

What a rude punk. Remember the last time he ran he was constantly jumping up on counters and tables in eating establishments and getting his dirty feet all over everything?

Somebody really needs to curb-stomp this little fucking punk and teach him some manners.

Jack Klompus | May 25, 2022 at 3:47 pm

Someone should’ve jumped off the stage and beaten this repulsive little gutless twerp to a pulp. This foul little human herpes sore needs to have his ass kicked severely. I am so fucking sick of useless shit bags like Beto and the entire sector of the population who finds anything remotely admirable about him. FUCK THESE PEOPLE.

    RandomCrank in reply to Jack Klompus. | May 25, 2022 at 11:23 pm

    I occasionally tell my winger neighbor who, like me, is a life member of the NRA and Second Amendment Foundation, that it’s a good thing we live at the end of a 900-foot gravel drive way on 20 acres, 5 miles from town. Otherwise … um, that’s enough. Okay one more thing. If one of the county tweakers (meth) should happen to try to break in while we’re here, it would be a close call between feeling sorry for the fool and being pissed about having to clean the rug. The backhoe would take care of the rest.

    If anyone happens to be looking for Mr. Castle Doctrine, look no further. I am the god damned poster child. Enter our four walls without being invited, after crossing our boundaries marked with “No Trespassing” signs, and then try to break in, and I quote the most quotable person, myself.

    “Random Crank, what’s your home defense gun?”

    “Which room?”

    To quote the Grateful Dead: “Their walls are built of cannon balls/Their motto is ‘Don’t Tread on Me.”

    Believe me, no hair trigger, however it might sound. Still: Beware the fool who tries it.

FORMER Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke. He just took himself out of the race with that immature stunt.

    Yeah, I guess he’s back is his “Damn right we’re coming for your AR-15!” mode again. Like good proggie liars everywhere, his position changes with the wind.

    Beto must have taken a page from the Howard Dean book of political speech.

    Milhouse in reply to Pasadena Phil. | May 25, 2022 at 4:54 pm

    Anyone who was going to vote for him will admire his stunt and will think it makes him look good. Any normal person who would be turned off by it would never have voted for him anyway.

      geronl in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2022 at 5:29 pm

      It seems like half the people are as swayable as a flag in a hurricane

      CommoChief in reply to Milhouse. | May 25, 2022 at 5:35 pm

      Agreed. His campaign was not getting traction even with d/prog. This stunt is throwing red meat to his base. It’s probably the only chance he has to gain momentum. For a few days his campaign will be back in the news and get folks talking about him.

      Many of us view it as a ghoulish attempt to make political profit off the tragedy of murdered kids but for some this sort of thing is the d/prog version of ‘this guy is a fighter’.

    Joe-dallas in reply to Pasadena Phil. | May 25, 2022 at 4:58 pm

    unfortunately, beto the butt head will lose no votes among his supporters

How they can justify giving 4o billion dollars to Ukraine after this? That money should be used to help solve this problem, but instead they tell us they can solve it by passing a bill.

Why don’t they tell Ukraine to pass a fricking bill to end the war with Russia?

    geronl in reply to Peabody. | May 25, 2022 at 5:31 pm

    The federal government should not fund or control public schools in any way, shape or form. If you mean mental health treatment, sure but the Democrats celebrate mental problems and encourage the mentally ill to be proud of it.

      Peabody in reply to geronl. | May 25, 2022 at 5:46 pm

      Here are some things $40 billion could be used for:

      1. Mental health. Need to build hundreds of mental health facilites and hire mental health workers.

      2. Family break down. Need to do something about one family homes and homes without a father.

      3. Drug addiction and committing crime to get money to buy drugs needs to be addressed.

      4. Gangs and gang violence.

      5. School security: Need to have a camera and buzzer with only one entrance into schools. Better doors and windows. An armed security guard would be nice.

      6. Gun security at home. Many of the shooters stole the guns from their parents.

      7. Teaching CRT is stirring up racial hatred and causing more problems than it solves.

      8. Illegal immigration is overwhelming the nation and draining our resources dry.

      9. _______________________________________________

        NotSoFriendlyGrizzly in reply to Peabody. | May 25, 2022 at 7:41 pm

        I am not disagreeing with any particular point on your list. However, #5 is, at best, semi-problematic.

        “5. School security: Need to have a camera and buzzer with only one entrance into schools.”

        The problem with this is that all “Emergency Exits” will need to be manned by armed security personnel. Otherwise, what is to stop a shooter, or compatriotaccomplice, from triggering an emergency exit and holding the door open…..

        Again, not disagreeing with you. Just pointing out an obvious flaw.

      Peabody in reply to geronl. | May 25, 2022 at 6:02 pm

      My list is just brainstorming, not an actual list of recommendations.

      My point is that passing a law won’t change anything. If they want to do something worthwhile politicians need to spend less time worrying about Ukraine and more time worrying about our problems.

      School shootings are just the tip of the iceberg. Our country is in bad shape and we can’t afford to give $40 billion away.

It would be nice if Facebook devoted as many resources to monitoring death threats as it does to conservative speech. It strikes me that instant referral of a death threat to the police station nearest the source should not be much of a technology challenge.

I also wonder how much law enforcement of all varieties is stretched impossibly thin by millions of illegals crossing the border, thanks to Brandon.

Finally, how did that guy get into that school? Schools around here (NJ) have long since made it difficult to enter.

    Joe-dallas in reply to jb4. | May 25, 2022 at 4:59 pm

    There are reports that he got passed the security guard at the entrance. Not sure how accurate those reports are

Beta didn’t do himself any favors with the voters with that stunt.

I have a question. Where did this 18-year-old kid get the money to buy two rifles in one day???
That’s got to be about $3000 worth of guns he bought, along with the ammo and magazines he used.
Where did it come from?

    RandomCrank in reply to JOBBOSS. | May 25, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    The rifles cost 4 grand including tax. He bought about 350 rounds, which go for about $200 on ammoseek. Magazines are dirt cheap. If he had scopes (I don’t think he did, but just in case), those range all over the map. I have a couple scopes that cost less than $100.

    In any case, the stories say he was hassled because his family is poor. He had a fast food job, but could he have saved 4 or 5 grand? If so, he’d have had to be squirreling money away for quite a while. Alternatively, given that he was shot by a Border Patrol guy from an elite unit, I wonder if the kid was running drugs and/or illegals.

Given that many of these mass shootings are by young males and we appear incapable of “red flagging” anyone or doing anything about mental illness, might raising the gun purchase age to 21 be helpful?

    nordic_prince in reply to jb4. | May 25, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    About as helpful as raising the drinking age to 21 in order to stop teenage drinkers.

    henrybowman in reply to jb4. | May 25, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Besides being unconstitutional?
    Guns are like drugs. If your location, age, etc. afford you a way to buy them legally, then you buy them legally. If not, you buy them illegally, and it’s no skin off your nose either way.

    healthguyfsu in reply to jb4. | May 25, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Most of these types are of age. There are a few exceptions, but I doubt a couple of years would have stopped them from either:

    a) waiting a few years and then going on a rampage
    b) obtaining weapons illegally and still going on a rampage

    Barry in reply to jb4. | May 25, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Let’s just raise the age of murdering to 150, problem solved.

    alaskabob in reply to jb4. | May 26, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    He carried a handgun, which is illegal for him being under 21. What is more powerful? Owning a rifle or voting Democrat at 18.

TheOldZombie | May 25, 2022 at 9:33 pm

UPDATE: CBS SAYS BETA SNUCK IN THE ROOM IN ORDER TO MAKE THE SCENE.

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cbs-news-beto-press-conference-texas-clearly-staged

Beto is going to have to start wearing a tie….¿por que?

It will keep the foreskin from shrouding his head.

Just another communist dancing on the graves of children to push totalitarianism. He’ll have to get in line.

Is this the same “Beto” who was going to take our guns, then wasn’t going to take our guns, and now wants to take our guns again? Let me know when he stops spinning. I’ll be curious to see if his face ends up on the front of his skull.

2nd Ammendment Mother | May 26, 2022 at 9:40 am

This “murder fantasy” written and published by 15 year old Beto O’Rourke needs to be front and center of any discussion:
“Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them.

“THIS HAPPINESS WAS MINE BY RIGHT. I HAD EARNED IT IN MY DREAMS. AS I NEARED THE YOUNG ONES, I PUT ALL MY WEIGHT ON MY RIGHT FOOT, KEEPING THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL ON THE FLOOR UNTIL I HEARD THE CRASHING OF THE TWO CHILDREN ON THE HOOD, AND THEN THE SHARP CRY OF PAIN FROM ONE OF THE TWO. I WAS SO FASCINATED FOR A MOMENT, THAT WHEN AFTER I HAD STOPPED MY VEHICLE, I JUST SAT IN A DAZE, SWEET VISIONS FILLING MY HEAD.”
15 year old Beto O’Rourke
“My dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care. It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing more of these ‘acts of love,’ and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out. The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were. … I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.”

franciscodanconia | May 26, 2022 at 9:50 am

Must be a soy rage.

Beta reminds me of the fifth grade playground punk who tries to impress the fourth graders. Sure, he’ll succeed, but what does that say?
.

If Beto says it could have been prevented than Beto must have known about it. Abbott should have asked Beto if Beto knew about it why didn’t Beto report it and saved the children.

aramissebastian | May 28, 2022 at 5:18 pm

So, the problem I have with this ‘grace period’ stuff is, when exactly is the right time to talk about this problem of rampant gun violence?

Is it when everyone except the victims has moved on from the most recent tragedy, and the sense of urgency for change has abated, and the usual apathy has set in?

That’s a little too self-serving of the status quo, which has to change, leaving aside the issue of gun safety reform. It is a national outrage that little kids are being slaughtered in the classroom.

Oh, and BTW, when someone as partisan as Gov. Abbott holds a so-called press conference, and disseminates disinformation besides, is that any less ‘political’ than Beto?

Like any pol., Beto likes to focus attention on himself. Deride him for that if you must, but he does speak for a lot of people nation- and world-wide who think that the indiscriminate proliferation of firearms is insanity, pure and simple.
