Today is a high-stakes day for Americans, as eyes are turned towards Virginia for more than one reason.
Not only is the state at the center of a firestorm of controversy related to public school “education,” but it is also the center of a major gubernatorial race between a long-term Democrat, Terry McAuliffe, and a fresh face for the Republics: Glenn Youngkin.
Youngkin, a successful businessman and political newcomer, offers numerous strengths over the ailing McAuliffe, especially since McAuliffe has shot himself in the foot repeatedly over public education.
After all, who can forget his infamous proclamation regarding parents and teaching, namely that parents shouldn’t be telling schools what to teach?
For this exact reason, Tucker Carlson has sounded the alarm about just how consequential this election is.
“Stop dividing us by race. Stop indoctrinating our schoolchildren to hate us. Stop treating parents like domestic terrorists. This is not about whether a Republican or a Democrat wins tomorrow. This is about where we go from here as a country.” [Source: Fox News]
Unsurprisingly, Trump has thrown his weight in the direction of exactly where the nation should go: in favor of Youngkin.
“Glenn Youngkin is a good man, a hardworking man, a successful man. He loves Virginia and wants to cut your taxes, save your children’s education, and many other very good things.” [Source: Washington Examiner]
In other words, Trump fully supports Youngkin, contrary to fiction news that suggests otherwise.
Which Trump directly addressed.
“The Fake News media, together with some of the perverts doing ads ad nauseam on primarily Fox (Fox shouldn’t take those ads!), are trying to create an impression that Glenn Youngkin and I are at odds and don’t like each other …
Importantly, this is not true, we get along very well together and strongly believe in many of the same policies. Especially when it comes to the important subject of education.” [Source: Washington Examiner]
Amen. Just imagine, if Trump were in power now, Loudon County would have been put in its place a long time ago.
And if anyone would be considering a “domestic terrorist,” it would certainly be schoolboard members over parents, especially since they are actively stirring up hate based on divisions.
Kind of the same methods used by terrorists, in other words: Follow their ideology, or else …
Trump also wisely advocated for individuals to vote, especially given any tricks that the Democrats may have in store with regards to voting.
“I am not a believer in the integrity of Virginia’s elections, lots of bad things went on, and are going on. The way you beat it is to flood the system and get out and vote.” [Source: Washington Examiner]
Absolutely. Flood the system, and keep flooding it … with votes in favor of America, not against.
On his part, McAuliffe continues to flounder, arguing that Trump’s policies are supposedly fueled by “division.”
“Today Trump said that he and Glenn ‘get along very well together and believe in many of the same policies.’ We have rejected the racism, the hate, the division, and the lies of Donald Trump twice. And tomorrow, we will do it again.” [Source: Washington Examiner]
Yeah well, the only way the Democrats will “do it again” is through rather unscrupulous means.
One way to certainly not “do it again” is to attack the state’s teachers for daring to be (gasp!) white.
“Fifty percent of our students are students of color, 80% of the teachers are White, so what I’m going to do for you, we’ll be the first state in America …
If you go teach in Virginia for five years in a high-demand area — that could be geographic, it could be course work — we will pay room, board, tuition, any college, any university, or any HBCU here in Virginia.” [Source: Fox News]
So, in other words, one person and one person only is fixated on race (and division): McAuliffe.
Because division is the Democrats’ answer to having zero sound policies of their own.
Fortunately, Trump called out McAuliffe for exactly who he is, especially in light of McAuliffe spending upwards of $100,000 on fake news ads on the Facebook platform
Apparently, “fake news” only applies if it’s unflattering to Democrats … One of the may ways in which Democrats cheat, as noted by Trump.
“Terry McAuliffe is a low-life politician who lies, cheats, and steals. He was a terrible high-tax governor and would be, if elected, an even worse governor again …
I say to all of our millions of followers, don’t listen to the Fake News and misleading advertisements written largely by already-acknowledged perverts … Get out and vote for a man who will be a great governor, Glenn Youngkin!” [Source: Washington Examiner]
One can only hope that Virginians will be greeting Governor Youngkin tomorrow …
