The 2020 Presidential Election is gearing up to be one of the nastiest campaigns ever recorded.
Every Democrat candidate is going on record saying outrageous things just to get air time.
But what Beto O’Rourke said about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could end not only his presidential run, but also his career in politics.
O’Rourke has been in Iowa on the campaign trail speaking to voters.
During a stop, O’Rourke said the US-Israeli relationship is among the most important “on the planet.”
But then he decided to single out Netanyahu calling him “racist” and an obstacle to peace.
“That relationship, if it is to be successful, must transcend partisanship in the United States, and it must be able to transcend a prime minister who is racist, as he warns about Arabs coming to the polls, who wants to defy any prospect for peace as he threatens to annex the West Bank, and who has sided with a far-right, racist party in order to maintain his hold on power.”
Netanyahu is a huge supporter of President Trump, and Trump views Netanyahu as not only an important ally, but also a friend on the world stage.
It’s no surprise Beto O’Rourke is singling out Netanyahu as he calls for a two-state solution.
Of course, his version of a “solution” is to have Israel give leaders of Palestine a large swath of land that is already part of Israel.
And the fact that Trump has formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has many on the Left fuming.
Trump also signed a proclamation recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israel, overturning a longstanding US policy and handing Netanyahu a huge foreign policy victory right before his upcoming re-election.
Beto isn’t the first Democrat to come out swinging on Netanyahu.
His new colleague in the House, Rep. Ilhan Omar, has come under fire for her immense anti-Semitic rhetoric against Israel and its current Prime Minister.
She was forced to apologize after Democrat House leadership condemned her remarks.
But the fact is, anti-Semitic rhetoric is becoming a primary platform plank for Democrats.
What do you think? Do you think Beto’s career in politics could be in jeopardy if he keeps following Rep. Omar’s anti-Semitic lead?
