Kaitlin Bennett, the grassroots Director of Liberty Hangout, demonstrated just how uninformed a series of Robert “Beto” Francis O’Rourke supporters where when they admitted to not knowing who he was.
Bennett, if you are unfamiliar with her work, is best known as the “Kent State Gun Girl” who, during a graduation ceremony, posed with an AR-10 rifle to demonstrate her support for the Second Amendment.
She is a Libertarian who is a strong advocate for the American people to bear arms without fear of infringement from politicians who are pushing their “common-sense” gun-control regulations.
In this video, Bennett traveled to St. Augustine, Florida to conduct several man-on-the street interviews with college students who expressed support for Texas-based presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke. Beto is an Irish American politician who some accuse of adopting the Spanish nickname ‘Beto’ to pander to Texas’ growing Latino populations.
The ruse seems to have worked because, even while running for president on a national stage, his supporters do not seem to realize that Beto O’Rourke and Robert Francis O’Rourke are the same person.
Several of these interviewees express their warm support for the “fresh” and “new” candidate of Beto. When asked about Robert Francis O’Rourke, however, their support turns to ice.
The interviews become even more comical when Bennett asks the Beto supporters about the criminal background of Robert Francis O’Rourke.
She asks them if a candidate should be expelled from the presidential race if he is discovered to have been a drunk driver who attempted to flee the scene of an accident that almost killed someone. Of course, they respond that the candidate should be barred from running.
What about a candidate who was past history of burglary? Absolutely. That candidate should not be allowed to run.
Watch the shock on their face as they realize the candidate with the criminal history that she is describing is actually Beto.
If the entire situation were not so serious, and the stakes were not so high, the absolute ignorance of Democrat Party supporters would be hilarious.
