It’s no secret that Democrats favor handouts over actually giving Americans opportunities to work and generate upward mobility.
This was once again proven when 2020 Democrat hopeful Beto O’Rourke publically expressed his support for using the tax code to transfer money from white Americans to black Americans; this outrageous proposal was documented by Fox News.
Everything You Need to Know
Like many progressives, O’Rourke maintains the belief that anyone who is white in America is somehow automatically bestowed privileges that everyone else is excluded from. The Democrat candidate furthermore believes that there is this big, evil system which is out to get people of color, but African-Americans in particular.
Therefore, in the twisted Democrat way, O’Rourke believes that taking money which belongs to people and giving it to those who he deems as “oppressed” is evening a supposed unequal playing field.
When asked how he’d employ the tax code to help African-Americans, O’Rourke responded with the following statements:
“What if in the tax code we did a better job of breaking down that accumulated wealth, of taxing it so it is not producing the greatest income and wealth inequality that we’ve seen in our lifetimes, unseen since the Gilded Age of the 19th century? What if we decided that we would use the proceeds to invest in people, in education?”

The Fallacy of Left-Wing Logic
As demonstrated by O’Rourke and so many other Democrats, left-wing logic asserts that African-Americans and others are at a distinct disadvantage from others and so unable to compete that the tax code should become a handout machine. This is simply not true. The fact of the matter is that this is America and anyone who is willing to work hard and make the right decisions can pull themselves up.
This is something which Democrats hate to hear because it bursts their false narratives. At the end of the day, the entirety of the left-wing platform is built on manufacturing problems; then, Democrats propose outrageous solutions which give the groups they have deemed as victims just enough to tread water, thus continuing the vicious cycle.
The good news is that many Americans are waking up to this.
