Beto O’Rourke agrees we should mark the foundation of America as 1619, when the first slave ship arrived

You might have missed it this summer when the New York Times launched a “major initiative” in the New York Times Magazine called the 1619 project, with the idea of examining America’s history as if it began in 1619, the year the first slave ship arrived in Virginia.
2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was on board from the start and in a radio interview with The Breakfast Club, Beto O’Rouke let listeners know that he, too, was all for changing the founding of America to 1619.
We should mark the foundation of America not on July 4, 1776, but on August 20, 1619—when the first human beings kidnapped from Africa were brought here to build the wealth of our country. Until we acknowledge this history, and repair this damage, we cannot build a better future.

Beto now wants to do away with July 4 as a national holiday. He truly hates America. Looking at his poll numbers, the feeling is mutual with likely voters.

Probably somehow less than zero now.
I mean it’s a decent thing to bring attention to but lord almighty is this a transparent pander. You need a North Star Beto. You’re all over the place.

No doubt the history has been acknowledged. What will repair it? A time machine?

Reparations, probably, although the Democrats have mostly danced around that issue. Does Elizabeth Warren have a plan for that?
With this perspective, there is nothing left for Beto to do but give away his belongings and work tirelessly for the enrichment of the people on whose backs he now stands.

Shouldn’t he step aside and back an African-American candidate for president?
