Congressman Beto O’Rourke gained a ton of national attention this year during his Senate campaign with a video of his response to a question about NFL Players kneeling during the National Anthem…

Video of Beto O’Rourke defending protesting NFL players goes viral

In the past 24 hours, a video posted by Rep. O’Rourke about the southern Border Wall has gotten nearly 3 million views.

The Hill:

“President Trump’s proposed border wall would block access to the Rio Grande, the 4th longest river in North America; Seize land from Americans through eminent domain; exile hundreds of thousands of acres of the U.S. to a no man’s land between the river and the wall; seal off critical wildlife corridors; destroy your public lands; and send the wrong message to the world. The southern border already has over 600 miles of wall and fence, and since 2007, the undocumented immigrant population has grown more through Visa overstays than unauthorized border crossings.  We need realistic immigration reform, not a symbol of division.”

Beto has taught us at least two things in 2018:

  1. Don’t be afraid to directly engage Trump on Racial or Immigration Issues

2.  Social Media is an effective tool for reaching voters directly and at this point, is more effective than depending on Traditional News Media to influence public opinion. Trump gets it. AOC gets it. Beto gets it. Hopefully, more Dems (and fewer Republicans) master the use of Social Media and alternative media.
