With the Democratic Party’s presidential primary race in full disarray, party leaders are watching in horror as Democrats fall over each other to make themselves unelectable against Donald Trump.
But one top Trump challenger just took the cake.
And what he said in just one sentence will leave the Democratic Party in ruin come 2020.
There has been a grand total of three Democratic presidential primary debates thus far.
And with each passing debate, it seems as if the party continues to lurch further and further to the left than ever before.
But the final debate of the summer, held in Texas last week, helped to shine a light on just how radical the Democratic Party has gotten over the past three years.
When asked a question about gun confiscation, failed Senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke ended up torpedoing his own party’s presidential candidates with just one sentence.
“Hell yes we are going to take your AR-15,” Beto roared to a far-left debate crowd that rose in applause.
Meanwhile, Americans across the country looked out in horror as one of the leading Democratic presidential candidates vowed to stop at nothing to disarm them.
What Beto is proposing is even worse than simple confiscation however.
The only way that every weapon in America that Beto wants to remove from private hands can be confiscated, is if law enforcement goes door-to-door across America.
And that’s a recipe for disaster.
Beto knows this too.
He knows that there’s no way that the federal government can confiscate people’s firearms without catastrophe.
But he’s just saying this because he knows it will rally his liberal base around his failing presidential campaign.
But there’s one massive problem for Beto, and the entire Democratic Party.
President Donald Trump is watching their debates.
And he’s getting material left and right to use against the Democrats come 2020.
The same sound bites of Beto demanding sweeping gun control will eventually be used against the Democrats when they wrap up their primary calendar and select a nominee.
When that happens, Beto’s demands for door-to-door gun confiscation will become a liability rather than an asset for the Democratic Party, which has so far utterly failed to present itself as a reasonable alternative to President Trump.
This means that Beto’s remarks, while drawing praise from Democrats across the field and in the audience during the latest debate, could end up sinking the Democratic Party’s fortunes in the next presidential election.
What’s worse, Beto even admits that he’s supporting full-blown confiscation, because the question the moderator asked him was, “You know the critics call this confiscation. Are you proposing taking away their guns and how would this work?”
And yet Beto willingly stated that he was in fact calling for confiscation, and that under no circumstances would the federal government allows citizens to own an AR-15.
It’s as clear of a definition of confiscation as can be.
Do you think Beto’s remarks about gun confiscation could hurt Democrats in 2020?
