Two current attitudes taken, by 2020 hopefuls Bernie Sanders, and Beto O’rourke, the “radicalism” within the Democratic party, according to conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.
Shapiro claimed that O’rourke’s views on abortion and sen. Sanders, I-Vt., gun control push on the heels of the terrorist attack in new Zealand as a proof of how the party changed.
“I’m old enough to remember when the Democrats tried way, of suggesting, they pushed for a gun confiscation now apparently they are going to full-scale embrace of gun confiscation,” Shapiro said on “Fox & Friends”.
“We have something called the Second Amendment in this country, and it is deeply embedded in the American culture and the law.”
New Zealand this week responded to the attacks on two mosques in the city of Christchurch 50 believers killed through the ban on the sale of “military-style” semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines.

Sanders responded by saying that the United States must lead new Zealand.
“This is what looks like real action to stop gun violence. We must follow the lead of new Zealand, take on the NRA and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons in the United States,” he tweeted.
Shapiro believes new Zealand is to choose a bad example to the promotion of gun seizures.
“There are 35 murders in the whole country in 2017, a country with approximately 4.4 million people,” Shapiro said, comparing the County to the United States.

He then went after the candidate of the Democrats O ‘Rourke’ s views on late-term abortions.
“It’s really pretty crazy, the fact that Beto O’rourke and all the other major Democrats feel compelled to hug you, this is the position that you have, in order for the abortion up to and sometimes over points of the birth,” Shapiro said. “It just shows that the radicalism of the Democratic party.”
O’rourke was recently asked about his stance on late-term abortions and how he voted would have protected the Senate bill would children who survive a failed abortion.
“I would have voted to allow women their own decisions about their own body,” O’rourke said.
BETO O’ROURKE IS IN FAVOUR OF SEEMINGLY THIRD-TRIMESTER ABORTIONS
Shapiro also criticized the media for its role as a late-in coverage of late-term abortion, the topic of faith, you are trying to portray, is an extreme view as mainstream.
“Beto the generalized position that third trimester abortions should be legal, forget the child-murder position, also the third-trimester-position is a position, the hold only 13 percent of Americans,” Shapiro.
“So far out of the mainstream, far more from the mainstream-as a generalized pro-life views on the Republican side of the aisle. And it is amazing to see that the media treat it as if it were mainstream, it is assumed that women have the right to kill babies fully formed.”
