2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke once wrote a “murder fantasy” short story about running over two children with a car, according to a new report that also revealed that he was a member of a famous hacking group called the “Cult of the Dead Cow,” a famous group of hackers credited with inventing the term “hacktivism.”
The details were uncovered in a Reuters report which says the groups focus was to provide the necessary tools to those wanting to hack Microsoft computers. He also ended up writing bulletin boards, one he wrote when he was 15, detailing himself accelerating a car into a group of children and hearing them scream.
Reuters revealed that O’Rourke, who joined the Democratic presidential primary race on Thursday, was a member, while reporting, “there is no indication that O’Rourke ever engaged in the edgiest sorts of hacking activity, such as breaking into computers,” Fox News reports.
But the report also revealed that teenage Beto, in connection with the group, wrote stories under the name “Psychedelic Warlord” — writings that remain online.
One piece in particular detailed the narrator’s murder spree, as part of his goal seeking “the termination of everything that was free and loving.” The piece described the first kill as the murder of two children crossing the street.
It reads: “Then one day, as I was driving home from work, I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy, happy to be free from their troubles. I knew, however, that this happiness and sense of freedom were much too overwhelming for them.”
“This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams. As I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood, and then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two. I was so fascinated for a moment, that when after I had stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze, sweet visions filling my head.”
“My dream was abruptly ended when I heard a loud banging on the front window. It was an old man, who was using his cane to awaken me. He might have been a witness to my act of love. I was not sure, nor did I care. It was simply ecstasy. As I drove home, I envisioned myself committing more of these ‘acts of love,’ and after a while, I had no trouble carrying them out. The more people I killed, the longer my dreams were. … I had killed nearly 38 people by the time of my twenty-third birthday, and each one was more fulfilling than the last.”
Of the latest revelations, O’Rourke, 46, told Fox News, “It was stuff that I was a part of as a teenager that I’m not proud of today, and I mean that’s the long and short of it.”
Asked about the potential impact on his 2020 campaign, he had this to say: “I can’t control anything I did in the past. All I can do is control what I do going forward, and what I plan to do is give this my best; bring as many people together around the solution we face. That’s what I hear the people of Iowa saying as well.”
This dude is a complete freak and when I see him speak he looks like a freaking meth-head.
