But critical race theory isn’t taught in Virginia schools!
The Republican sweep in Virginia Tuesday night has nullified that claim. Glenn Youngkin beat Terry McAuliffe in the governor’s race. Republicans took the lieutenant governor’s office and, most important, beat the incumbent, George Soros-installed attorney general. In a shocking upset, the GOP even flipped the House of Delegates.
All this, despite the incessantly repeated claim on MSNBC and CNN that “CRT isn’t taught in Virginia schools!” uttered every five minutes like “Weather on the Ones!” Who were they trying to fool? Liberal women in New York? They don’t vote in Virginia. But MSNBC and CNN so enjoyed sneering about the stupidity of Republicans that they never bothered to consider that the people who would be voting could see with their own eyes what was being taught to their children.
Disturbingly, even with McAuliffe announcing that parents should have no say in what their children are learning in school — and then telling Virginia teachers that the white ones would have to go — the election was ridiculously close. The current tally is about 51% to 49%.
Liberals thought they had a lock on Virginia, no matter what lunacies their candidates spouted. They had a gigantic immigrant population (non-English speakers are a key Democratic constituency); illiterates (same), who were specifically given the right to vote by Democrats; and felons (duh), more than 300,000 of whom were enfranchised by the last two Democratic governors.
That’s rough. Democrats had specifically earmarked those immigrants for Texas and Florida.
All night on Tuesday, liberal commentators kept talking breathlessly about the early vote/mail-in vote, correctly presuming it to be overwhelmingly Democratic. That should tell you what early voting is really about.
Early voting has nothing to do with the convenience of the voters. It’s about the convenience of Democratic operatives, who need weeks and weeks to drag their voters to the polls and help them fill out absentee ballots. Conveniently, Virginia has “no-excuse” absentee voting, allowing anyone to request a mail-in ballot for any reason, for up to 45 days before an election.
