Now that Robert Francis O’Rourke, aka Beto, has thrown his hat in the ring to run for the Democratic nominee for president, he opens himself up for scrutiny not seen in his failed run in Texas for the U.S. Senate and it turns out he has some strange, disturbing skeletons in his closet.
Writing as a teen under the pseudonym “Psychedelic Warlord,” O’Rourke penned a piece titled, “The Song of the Cow,” which calls on a “sacred” cow to not only provide for him milk, but to “buff” and “scrub my balls,” The Washington Examiner reported.
I need a butt-shine,
You are holy,
Oh, sacred Cow
I thirst for you,
Buff my balls,
Love the Cow,
Good fortune for those that do.
Love me, breathe my feet,
The Cow has risen.
Wax my ass,
Scrub my balls.
The Cow has risen,
O’Rourke was a member of the hacking group “Cult of the Dead Cow,” according to Reuters, and while he was just 16 years old, the experimental writing from a “misfit teen in El Paso, Texas,” as Reuters described him, exposes an odd mindset.
Interestingly, President Trump was asked for his thoughts on O’Rourke entering the 2020 presidential race by reporters in the Oval Office on Thursday.
“He has a lot of hand movement. I’ve never seen so much hand movement. I said, ‘Is he crazy or is that just the way he acts?’” Trump responded.
“I’ve never seen hand movement, I watched him a little while this morning, doing, I assume some kind of a news conference. I’ve actually never seen anything quite like it. Study it. I’m sure you’ll agree.”

And as bizarre as it may be to beseech a sacred cow for personal services, the deep crevices of O’Rourke’s mind get darker. Much darker.
Turns out, the Democrat fantasized about running over children in a car, as seen in a short story he wrote at the time — image a Republican with this disturbing thought process on their resume.
Not lost in the mix is O’Rourke’s believe that he had a “right” to what someone else possessed.
“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…. This happiness was mine by right. I had earned it in my dreams,” O’Rourke wrote.
“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,” he continued.
As for the hacking, Cult of the Dead Cow “is notorious for releasing tools that allowed ordinary people to hack computers running Microsoft’s Windows,” Reuters reported, adding that there’s “no indication that O’Rourke ever engaged in the edgiest sorts of hacking activity, such as breaking into computers or writing code that enabled others to do so.”
Although, he apparently did steal long-distance phone service for his dial-up modem.
The candidate summed up that period of his life as “profound value.”
“There’s just this profound value in being able to be apart from the system and look at it critically and have fun while you’re doing it,” O’Rourke told the news service. “I think of the Cult of the Dead Cow as a great example of that.”
As for his flailing arms, the phenomenon is taking on a life of its own online:

This is how Beto gets his arms warmed up for his speeches. Gotta make sure he doesn’t tear something as he flails wildly about. pic.twitter.com/NruRTDETZw
