Glenn Youngkin Defeated Terry McAuliffe Because Democrats Betrayed Parents

From COVID-19 closures to critical race theory, Republicans can fix schools by giving families more choice.

|

While former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe's loss to Republican challenger Glenn Youngkin was cemented very late on election night, in practice the day that he forfeited the gubernatorial race was September 28. That was when, during a debate with Youngkin, McAuliffe, a Democrat, made the statement that "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach."

That was his response to questions about school curriculum and the fury that had taken hold at many local school board meetings, where irate parents assailed education leaders for allegedly supporting what has been termed "critical race theory" by right-wing activists who oppose it. CRT is a divisive concept, in part because progressives and conservative disagree sharply about what it even is. Many members of the liberal media don't even believe it exists, and have accused the GOP of fabricating the issue. As Youngkin's victory became apparent, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace lamented that critical race theory, "which isn't even real," had swung the suburbs 15 points in Republicans' favor.

Christopher Rufo, a conservative activist and the architect of the current CRT framing, has claimed a well-deserved victory: There's no question that his efforts to supply a memorable name—critical race theory—for the series of semi-related, clumsy diversity initiatives and questionable curriculum choices in some public schools helped raise the salience of the issue.

But the other piece of the puzzle, undoubtedly, was public schools' utter failure to serve kids and families throughout the pandemic. Schools shut down for months, offloading teacher duties to frustrated parents all over the country. The education system forced families to take more responsibility for educating kids. It catered to the every whim of teachers union leaders like American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten, no matter how unreasonable, while kids and their parents were left to fend for themselves. It put public employees ahead of citizens and taxpayers. And it continued to subordinate the needs of families for more than a year. Even at present—long after it has become perfectly clear that COVID-19 is not a significant threat to children—many public schools in blue municipalities continue to force kids to wear masks. Some kids even have to wear masks while playing sports outdoors.

What happened in the Virginia gubernatorial election is that a reckoning finally arrived. Parents rightly objected to the idea that they should assume more and more of the school system's responsibilities but should not enjoy any authority. And they clearly blamed Democrats for taking the side of teachers unions: K-12 parents broke decisively for Youngkin.

Critical race theory has now taken center stage in this unrelenting culture war, to the extent that Joy Reid now thinks "Education is code for 'white parents don't like the idea of teaching about race.'" That attitude is a recipe for continued failure—for alienating Democratic voters. The more the media calls parents racists for wanting to exert some influence over their kids' educational options, the worse off Democrats will be.

If Republicans truly wish to capitalize on their better-than-expected showing, they should deliver on what parents of all political stripes want: school choice. Pass laws that expand the ability of families to choose the education option that is best for individual students. Rather than having bitter arguments about what policies schools should be allowed to implement, parents should simply have the right to take their dollars and find a school that aligns with their values on COVID-19 protocols, curriculum, and everything else.

  1. "MSNBC in full meltdown mode."

    A panel full of losers, including Castro who was laughed out of the dem primary after simping for Trans-men's abortions in the debate...crying about a loss they earned with their propaganda.

    And how many times did they say "TRUMP INSURRECTION!!!" They are so clueless, they really have no idea that normal people roll their eyes at them at best, and despise them at worst.

    1. That's one big problem with the campaign McAuliffe ran: people here are concerned about education issues, high gas prices, high food prices, etc. but Democrats don't care what we're concerned about.

      For them all the focus should be on: trumptrumptrump mean tweets trumptrumptrump racist trumptrumptrump insurrection trumptrumptrump on and on and on...

      Independents especially are tired of hearing about the Left's obsession with Trump. Trump isn't President anymore and in the meantime we have real concerns.

      1. They really just cant comprehend what normal people think and how their lives are. They cant understand why people are upset. The Fuck Joe Biden thing has them scratching their heads.

        Tell people that everything is better because mean tweets are gone, but food is more expensive, their job sucks, gas more expensive, vehicles more expensive, and even if they could afford whatever shit they want to get their kid for christmas its not in stock. Also despite Covid cases going way down, and vaccine available that you may have taken, you still have to wear a mask everywhere, its the new normal after all. And you can take all that and be happy, because Trump is gone! Arent you happy?! No InSurreKshun!!

        1. I made over $700 per day using my mobile in part time. I recently got my 5th paycheck of $19632 and all i was doing is to copy and paste work online. this home work makes me able to generate more cash daily easily.ZXv simple to do work and regular income from this are just superb. Here what i am doing.

          Try now……………… READ MORE

        2. "The Fuck Joe Biden thing has them scratching their heads."

          Their reaction to it is priceless.

          Articles bemoaning the coarsening of dialogue (4 years of "Fuck Trump" did not do that, it seems)

          "Reporters" (Ken Dilanian barely qualifies as human, much less a reporter) going to the fucking Secret Service over LGB on a gun.

          The AP possibly inventing a pilot saying "LGB" and the reporter trying to fucking enter the cockpit (story sounds like BS as I doubt the reporter does not get arrested for what she claimed she did)

      2. Msnbc was calling Va voters racist last night despite the gop electing a black woman as lt gov and a Hispanic as ag. They learned nothing.

        Also if I hear one more democrat claim that youngkin won because he lied about CRT in schools... Rufo posted primary documents from 2017 in VA that showed the schoolboard itself said they were teaching CRT based concepts and training teachers in CRT. They have no shame in lying.

        1. They proudly and brazenly supported CRT, and called anyone arguing against it racist.

          Now that they lost partially due to it, they have to say "bad mean R's LIED about it!" and completely deny it.

          1. … if I hear one more democrat claim that youngkin won because he lied about CRT in schools...

            The gaslighting about Democrat’s support of teaching CRT in K-12 is going to ramp up like a hurricane. I predict it will be the next censored “misinformation” to suggest the Democrats ever supported teaching CRT to begin with.

            1. Bruh, CRT doesn't exist. They said so on MSNBC.

              Fuck Joe Biden

            2. We have always been at war with crt.

        2. Maybe the know something we don't and expect McAwful to win. The Democrats did sponsor white supremacist rallies during the campaign, after all.

      3. That's one big problem with the campaign McAuliffe ran: people here are concerned about education issues, high gas prices, high food prices, etc. but Democrats don't care what we're concerned about.

        All the Beltway media and polling balloonheads have been blaming the failure to pass the Green New Deal and infrastructure bills on this loss.

        These bitches live in such a tightly constructed hugbox of their own making, that they have no connection to what people were thinking outside of their DC cocktail parties. Did they not notice that McAullife's numbers started nose-diving when he promoted the chemtard radical deathfat line that parents should shut up and let the "experts" run the schools? Or the nope-this-wasn't-coordinated-with-us-at-all-no-xir Lincoln Project fiasco?

        Youngkin really ought to be sending a fruit basket to the Lincoln Project and Louden County school board, because everything that revolved around them the last few weeks is likely what put him over the top.

        1. The best part about Youngkin's win is that (P)Rick Wilson has been completely radio silent on his Twitter feed since yesterday afternoon.

      4. McAuliffe, Garland, the entire Demorcatic party are in the Education guild's hip pocket.

    2. MSNBC is more evidence that the proggie left are trying to gaslight themselves.

  2. "Joy Reid now thinks "Education is code for 'white parents don't like the idea of teaching about race.'"

    Keep it up dems. Keep telling normal people that are well meaning, who just want their kid to learn what a school SHOULD teach, that if they dont fully swallow and repeat your activist propaganda that they are racists. Keep it up.

    Bloodbath in 2022, R senate, R house, Biden agenda done for

    1. Fookin' hilarious that arguments by chemfat and MSNBC lunatics like Joy Reid are completely indistinguishable.

      1. Ive told him before that I dont really need to argue with him because I can tell him what his take is already by reading yesterdays Wapo, NYT, CNN headlines.

        Its no coincidence his argument is almost always perfectly in line with Joy Reids

        1. I wouldn't be surprised if he lives in the NoVa swamp havens, considering how well-aligned his arguments are with those demographics. He's likely just parroting whatever his neighbors are telling him.

          I mean, shit, McAulliffe made the EXACT SAME assertion about parents and school involvement that he's been making here for weeks now.

    2. the cracks are widening...folks like reid are being seen for the absolute dunces they are. their hyperbole is thin and insincere.

      it will be a bloodbath...the first cut was last night when virginia told the arrogant governor and his arrogant minions to get the fuck out

      1. When Joe Biden heard his little play thing McAwful lost, he shit his pants - again.

  3. Guess what? Terry McAwful now plans to contest the election.

    Does that make him an insurrectionist?

    1. Yes. And any supporter of his voicing the same in public is a domestic terrorist that should be dealt with as such. How could authorities know that they are not armed?

      1. They better not trespass on public property.

      2. How could authorities know that they are not armed?

        Between home, work, and any public business pretty much everyone's got access to a fire extinguisher.

    2. Is the counting done? Because if not, I suspect that a few tens of thousands of "extra" ballots will be counted in the next couple of weeks. Gotta count all the ballots, very thoroughly.

      1. Alright, I actually looked it up, and the dems will need to conjure up over 70k votes to Correct the current results. Considering the ruling that requires mail-in have a witness signature, this would be somewhat more difficult for them than it was in 2020, so it seems like it comes down to how many more weeks the Counting will continue.

        1. Agreed - the fraud isn't over until Youngkin is sitting at the Gov's desk.

          1. I'm not sure it matters at this point since McAulliffe conceded. That's the Dem code for "don't do anything stupid with additional 'fortification' or we'll really piss people off." When Norfolk's dump didn't push Terry within striking distance, that was the final blow.

            I saw last night that Fairfax was playing some reindeer games, but it looks like they ultimately threw in the towel as some of the red counties were holding back a handful of precinct results in anticipation of that.

            1. The most commonly heard phrase every year on election night?

              "This is a traditionally Democrat county and only a small portion of the precincts have reported results so far".

              I also noticed the surprisingly tight NJ race had counting stop in the middle of the night while Cittarelli was up by 1,500 votes. This morning that had flipped by 3,000 votes to a Murphy lead.

              1. NJ was so close it was going to end up being contested anyway, regardless of who won.

        2. Wisconsin ignored the witness signing rule last year. Don't give up faith.

          1. Yes, it's possible to just completely ignore that requirement, but from what I heard, Youngkin upped the R's election observer game for this one, and until the ballots themselves are shredded it should be simple enough (different from easy enough) to have unsigned ballots disqualified.

            To me it seems like the only way to Correct the result without making it too blatantly obvious would be to drag out the Counting for a couple of weeks as mail-in ballots postmarked right at the cut-off trickle in. The reason they're for the absurd delay could be waved away as related to the supply-chain shortage.

            1. the only easiest way to Correct the result...

              Fixed myself.

        3. "Considering the ruling that requires mail-in have a witness signature"

          Wasn't McAuliffe appealing to Gov Coonman to override that?

          1. Of course he is. Democrats don't take no for an answer.

      2. McAuliffe Just conceded, according to CNN.

        1. ... AFTER Brandon refused to take his call ...
          ... or just couldn't remember who he was ...

    3. No, questioning elections NOW is the height of patriotism.

      It just was not 10 months ago.

      Stuff happens fast.

  4. I hope Phailing Phil Murphy loses in the People's Republic of NJ.

    Jack & Diane have a very slight lead (as of now 800am). But wait! Guess what happened? We have lots of mail-in ballots to count. You know, those ballots that the NJ legislature changed the law about earlier this year to 'facilitate' voting. Guess where those ballots are concentrated? Yeah, you know.

    Watch what happens in the People's Republic of NJ.

    1. How we have elections where we don't have a known count of all mail on ballots before counting starts is beyond me. There were also multiple reports on VA of in person voters being told they had already voted by mail. Doubt they investigate to see of someone committed fraud by voting as someone else.

      1. Mail-in ballots will continue to be counted through the end of the week, apparently. Why it takes 10 times longer to count the remaining mail-in ballots as it took to count the other million and a half is beyond me.

        1. They have to wait for mail-in ballots dropped in a mail box just seconds before the in-person voting closed to arrive.

          1. More importantly they need to know just how many mail in ballots to add to get their candidate across the finish line in first.

          2. Granted, they have to wait for delivery. Standard time for intrastate first-class is two days or less. So if voting closed on Tuesday night, there might theoretically be a mailbox that only has one pick-up a day so the mailbox gets emptied on Wed evening. That still means delivery to the recipient by Friday. The elections board managed to count all the in-person votes in a single day so giving them a single-day to count all the mail-in ballots seems reasonable, too. Which means everything should be done by Monday evening.

            Which, okay, does work out to about a week from the close of in-person polling. I withdraw my objection.

        2. All night long you heard "some of these Democrat stronghold counties have only reported 30% of their totals".

          It's pretty clear why they hold their numbers.

          In-person balloting needs to be tabulated fully before they know how many phony ballots to fabricate.

          1. Which is why, years ago, I found it hilarious during a Wisconsin Supreme Court election a conservative district didn't finalize their vote tallies until every other county did.

            Progs declared it unfair, mind you.

            1. This is why I said yesterday that red counties need to start countering this fortification crap by slow-rolling their own vote counts. The likely long-term result would be a farcical situation in which no one submitted their final numbers for weeks, and hopefully lead to a needed reform telling the counties, "get all your mail-in and in-person vote tallies in by 10 pm, or the ones you haven't submitted yet won't be counted."

              1. I dunno. That sounds pretty racist to me.

                Fuck Joe Biden.

      2. Until they get rid of that invitation to fraud I'll never trust another close election.

    2. Murphy's winning. The outstanding votes are almost entirely in Dem-heavy counties. Remaining vote should break like 60/40 to him.

      Jack needed to win a majority of the votes in Bergen, Somerset, Middlesex, and Burlington. He got one out of the four, maybe because of a hometown bump.

      What I think is going to be interesting is looking into breakouts for Passaic, normally a heavily Democratic area which Jack almost won, and Hudson, which is quite similar demographically but went to Murphy in the usual way. Overall what I expect to see:
      1. Downmarket Hispanic conversion to the GOP looks to have some stick to it
      2. The GOP still needs to figure out how to pitch Asians
      3. Joe Biden is a boat anchor

      1. It isn't "Asians". It is "who are they in this state".

        In the west they are a cross section of society, largely immigrant or first and second generation. They are heavily upwardly mobile, education is huge for them and they skew very much like the Jewish voter in NYC.

        In the east they are much more likely to be longer term immigrants in NYC and surrounding areas where they are less education focused and less upwardly mobile. And then there are the newer arrivals... West coast college graduates with big paying jobs in professional capacities and in political organizations around DC. Totally different crowd.

        There is a blue color pitch, an education and merit based achievement pitch, an immigrant pitch and an elitist, statist pitch.

        Most of those are not the same people.

        1. Agreed.

          NJ Asians (both kinds, because Asia is such a small, homogeneous place) is a lot more like your former group. Jews are the comparison I've always used. Democrats monopolize their votes in places where they cluster (Bergen County and along the Edison - Princeton corridor).

          To make an overbroad analysis drawing much from my own professional experience and my wife's experience as a Math teacher in this area, they seem to be extremely status-conscious, particularly amongst each other. So while they may have sympathy for the education/merit pitch I'm betting it's the elitist/status-based one that drives a lot of the vote. And the GOP has no real argument there, they're proudly countercultural at this point.

  5. Virginia is for lovers and yesterday, they did indeed Fuck Joe Biden

    1. Outstanding.

    2. Hopefully, they phucked phailing phil murphy in the People's Republic of NJ, too.

    3. Only if they respect him in the morning would they be lovers.

  6. Finally a Reason headline and article I can get behind. You guys had me worried for a while there!

    1. What precisely had you worried? They’ve been consistently for school choice for decades.

      1. The overall mealy mouthing about Dems and dem programs

        1. So, Reason‘s not being Breitbart or OAN.

          1. Reason not being overtly supportive of liberty and the US Constitution by providing cover to anti-American democrats.

            1. Example?

    2. Maybe you missed all the whinging about the totally not real CRT in schools. Anything to support the DNC machine even if this one was tolerable by at least representing the issues (even if wrongly).

  7. parents should simply have the right to take their dollars and find a school that aligns with their values on COVID-19 protocols, curriculum, and everything else

    What if your most important value is sticking your nose in other people's business and telling them what's for their own good? And isn't that what politics is all about, imposing your views on everybody else?

    1. Government is another term for how we legally fuck with each other.

      1. I love it! A Libertarian Parallel Universe re-work of Barney Frank's quote!

    2. +1

      The left know better than you so OF COURSE they should be in charge.

      This is their defining belief.

      How about, instead of "Build Back Better", they try putting it back how it was before they broke it.

      That will never happen though. It will never sink in that most Americans simply want to be left the fuck alone and free to choose the path of their own lives.

  8. The attempts to brand republicans and the second coming of trump is insulting. Couple this with the ongoing real life examples of how authoritarian the democrat party has become and the decision is quite simple.

    At the moment republicans are less of a threat to individual freedom, talk about actual issues and are less authoritarian. If republicans are smart, they will pursue smaller government and increase the freedoms of individuals with items such as school choice.

    1. If republicans are smart...

      That's an unreasonably large "if".

    2. Ive never been a straight party voter, always been registered independent, voted on both for D's and R's in the past. But the pendulum has swung way too far and the D's have lost it. Trump broke their brains. In my opinion voting straight R until they have been checked and lose their authoritarian / activist mentality (and they are going to need to lose lots of elections before that happens) is the only solution at this point. The level of propaganda and coordination with big companies, the media, and their aggressive agenda is a threat to the country.

    3. So, we’re just going to overlook that little episode where Trump attempted to overturn the results of the election.

      1. Do you think he believes what he says about the election?

      2. Democratic Governor Samuel Tilden of New York won 250,000 more ballots in the popular vote than his Republican opponent, Rutherford B. Hayes, and snagged 19 more electoral votes. But Tilden was still one electoral vote short of the required majority (185), and 20 votes remained uncounted: Florida, Louisiana and South Carolina remained too close to call, as each party accused the other of fraud, while in Oregon an elector was declared illegal and replaced, with controversial results. As the crisis mounted, threats of another civil war loomed.

        In an unprecedented move, Congress established a 15-member commission of senators, congressmen and Supreme Court justices (including seven Republicans, seven Democrats and an independent) to decide the election. After the swing vote turned in Hayes’ favor, he was awarded all 20 electoral votes from the disputed states, giving him the necessary 185. After the Democrats threatened to filibuster and block the official vote counting, the issue was settled in negotiations at D.C.’s Wormley Hotel in February 1877. The Democrats would accept Hayes’ victory provided that Hayes remove all federal troops from the South, among other conditions. The compromise consolidated Democratic control of the region, effectively ending Reconstruction and reversing the gains that African Americans had made during the post-Civil War era.

        The idea that Trump is/was some sort of existential threat to the republic continues to be laughably ignorant.

        1. Yep, and the "Corrupt Bargain" incident in the 1824 election was arguably just as contentious as well.

          The problem with leftists is that they have no other frame of reference other than binary "socialist/fascist" thinking, and their conception of history is basically limited to the Civil War, World War II, and a laughably short overall timeline that rarely extends beyond the previous 20 years.

          Bring up anything outside that timeframe, and they likely haven't even read about it, much less understand it.

          1. their conception of history is basically limited to the Civil War, World War II

            Washington chopping down the apple tree counts as a conception, though it's usually called an apocryphal story rather than history. Again, my general impression of the leftist understanding of WWII is "And then, for no particular reason at all, the German people elected Adolph Hitler." Not the deeper cultural analysis about socialism and elitism that Ken outlines below.

            1. "Again, my general impression of the leftist understanding of WWII is "And then, for no particular reason at all, the German people elected Adolph Hitler.""

              Right on. There are so many lessons from Hitler's rise to power, and the German people's response to him that are completely lost on them. But the amount of complexity is far beyond their critical thinking abilities. Plus it paints a pretty nasty picture of socialism and they cant really look to far into something like that

              1. Wow, I have a whole bunch of grayed out comments in response my comment -- and then somehow the one comment I don't have muted is somehow about Hitler.

                1. The hilarious result of White Mike creating his hugbox is that he ends up with the stunning realization that people can have conversations without him.

                2. It was an interesting discussion on how people fail to understand history and oversimplify things. Sort of like what you do with Jan 6 and pretty much everything related to Trump.

            2. Washington chopping down the apple tree counts as a conception

              Their understanding of Washington or any of the founding fathers was summed up by the shitlib hippie teacher from "Dazed and Confused"--" a bunch of slave-owning, aristocratic, white males who didn't want to pay their taxes."

              Again, my general impression of the leftist understanding of WWII is "And then, for no particular reason at all, the German people elected Adolph Hitler." Not the deeper cultural analysis about socialism and elitism that Ken outlines below.

              The best part is their utter bafflement and disgust towards the America First-ers, even though plenty of their commie allies were isolationist between the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and the launch of Operation Barbossa.

        2. Not to mention that the democrats still insist to this day that Bush STOLE the 2000 election from Gore, and that Hillary Clinton and the democrats STILL insist that Trump STOLE the 2016 election from Hillary. They even had impeachment hearings about it.

          It takes special kind of pea-brained low IQ morons, without an ounce of honesty, decency, or integrity, to insist that the 2020 election had 0.00% fraud while also insisting that republicans steal elections.

          Think about it -- what absolute, dishonest, hypocritical morons.

      3. So, we’re just going to overlook that little episode where Trump attempted to overturn the results of the election.

        Ah yes, nothing like being a gaslighting shitbag toady for the MSM. GTFOH with that bullshit.

        Tell me, does Dem cock taste that great?

      4. The rest of us just aren't pretending your little fantasies are real.

        1. Back at ya. I'm not pretending right-winger's fantasies of a stolen election are real.

          1. Are you still on about how the election was stolen? The rest of the country, including the 'right wingers' have moved on.

            It's only the Left that keeps screaming about it.

            A bit of the telltale heart, perhaps?

          2. Back at ya.

            Not exactly. You seem to presume I engage in the same sorts of fantasies you do except for the other team. No evidence required, as usual.

      5. Stacy the Human Hippo says "guten tag".

        1. Hi, Tulpa!

    4. Democrats also have the issue of as bad as they believe Trump was....there is really nothing Biden has not made noticeably worse since he was "elected".

      1. You know, funny thing, I don't think Sanders would have screwed things up as badly.

    5. Trump was the best and most consequential president of the last 40 years. If only republicans acted like Trump we wouldn't be in this mess, but republicans by and large were anti-Trump, which is why they collaborated with democrats on the Nov 3, 2020 coup.

    6. No one goes into government because they think people in government should have less power.

  9. Yep. The Virginia election was the Democrats' to win or lose, and they managed to lose it well.

  10. Progressives are still projecting the wrong message on this. Here's a great example.

    "Unless the President passes his two priority bills soon and makes progress on other issues including voting rights or immigration reform, already difficult midterm elections will begin to look impossible."

    ----CNN, November 3, 2021

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/03/politics/us-election-day-analysis-virginia-new-jersey-democrats-reckoning/index.html

    The general rule here is that elitism provokes a populist response. Local school boards imposing an unpopular curriculum and mandates on the unwilling is just one example. Biden siccing the FBI on parents for opposing their school boards and McAuliffe stating that parents have no business telling schools what to teach their children are just two more examples of elitism. There are plenty of others.

    Imposing immigration reform on unwilling voters is another example of elitism. Changing federal law so that states can't elect as many Republicans and can't set their own voting laws the way they want is another form of elitism. Using the coercive power of government to force people to pay higher heating bills this winter as a solution to climate change is elitism. Enacting more of their elitist agenda will not help the Democrats in the midterms.

    "Populism refers to a range of political stances that emphasize the idea of "the people" and often juxtapose this group against "the elite" or "the establishment".

    In all of its forms, from the left to right, populism is a reaction to elitism, and the more Joe Biden and the progressives enact their elitist agenda, as reflected in their budget reconciliation bill, the more it will generate a populist response. If the Democrats don't change direction on that reconciliation bill, they may get Trump reelected in 2024, or it may be some other populist just like him--perhaps without the mean tweets.

    1. I see "Biden siccing the FBI on parents for opposing their school boards" as much more than just an example of elitism. The FBI (as well as most Federal Career Bureaucrats) are de facto agents of the DNC and what was done by the AG deserves a much sronger perjorative than elitism in action.

      The Elitism is that the DNC is (was?) confident that they can use the press and govt to obscure their machinations without penalty.

      1. Whatever else it is in addition to that, it is also an example of elitism.

    2. Democrats might need to worry that the results of their actions get less "polite" over time.

      The Tea Party was far more polite than Trump was.

      What will follow Trump?

      1. Exactly.

        The real dangerous shit happens when the American people start to believe that the only way their rights and opinions will be respected is if someone like Trump is in charge. When they lose faith in liberal institutions to respect their rights and opinions, they will not give up on their rights and opinions. They will give up on liberal institutions, and then we're in real trouble.

        1. The real dangerous shit happens when the American people start to believe that the only way their rights and opinions will be respected is if someone like Trump is in charge.

          I'd argue the real dangerous shit happens when people say they've exhausted the Ballot Box and have decided to resort to the Bullet Box. That's when you turn Downtown America into Sarajevo 2.0 and the US collapses into a failed nation-state....

    3. Moreover, Ken, populism:elitism::nationalism:socialism.

      The more elitists tell you to give equally to places you've never been and people you've never met, the better others who say 'keep your money at home' or even just "give your money to us and we'll spend it on you" are going look. People like sarcasmic and Laursen saying 'being so pragmatic demonstrates your willingness to forfeit ideas and principles for pragmatism' don't seem to fathom that the stance is analogously elitist (let alone that the dead don't have principles or ideologies) and, based on the position they're advancing indifference to, indistinguishable from pro-socialist.

  11. Incidentally, we should expect to see moderate Democrats head for the exits on the budget reconciliation bill.

    Last weeks headlines were about why the progressives in the House won't support the moderate Democrats' infrastructure bill. After the Virginia election, the headlines next week will be about why the moderate Democrats in the House refuse to support the progressives' budget reconciliation bill.

    Nancy Pelosi is toast.

    1. Current dem legislation is fucked, and Biden's overall agenda is fucked.

      His presidency is about to be like the rest of Obamas, but without Obamacare

    2. Maybe. They want their SALT back really badly.

      1. is that state and local taxes or strategic arms limitation treaty?

    3. Incidentally, we should expect to see moderate Democrats head for the exits on the budget reconciliation bill.

      Doubtful. Elected Dems don't respond to the prospect of electoral losses in the same way Republicans do because they understand left-controlled institutions (academia, media, NGOs, the executive branch) will provide sinecures to reward their loyalty.

    4. Guarantee Tester is getting vewy, vewy nervous.

    5. “Nancy Pelosi is toast.”

      OTOH, last night’s events could give Pelosi the tools she needs to tell Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of the Progressive Goon Squad that they are nowhere near as politically powerful or popular as they think they are, that they are in no position to make demands or impose their views, and that they can all fuck themselves before they cost the party control of Congress next year. It will be interesting to see if this happens.

      1. Pelosi seems to be saying she's not running for re-election.

  15. McAuliffe must not give up. Republicans probably stole this election like they stole the Georgia governorship from strong beautiful Black woman Stacey Abrams.

    File lawsuits. Demand a recount. Or several recounts until the correct result — a Democratic victory — is reached.

    #KeepVirginiaBlue
    #KeepCRTInPublicSchools

    1. The longer the count, the more mail-in ballots can be fortified. I believe we can achieve 120% voter turnout with proper motivation!

    2. Russian collusion?

    3. October Surprise?

  16. I would suggest that part of the reason Youngkin defeated McAuliffe has to do with the fact that McAuliffe is a big fat lying phony, a greasy shitweasel politician willing to say or do anything to win.

    1. You described just about every democrat politician.
      I would add one more item: neo-Marxist.

    2. Of course, McAuliffe is a Clinton crony.

    3. None of that prevented him from getting elected on the first place.

      Being known as a lying shitweasal is not a barrier to high political office.

  17. Also take note dems. Your propaganda machine that spent every second trying to tie Youngkin to white supremacy, and make him the second coming of trump, still wasn't able to overcome how disgusted people are becoming with democrats.

    Despite all the propaganda, a R just took the gov in a state that Biden won by 10 fucking points, where an R hasn't won anything in over a decade!!

    Buckle up, its going to be rough for you. Dont fuck with people's kids next time

    1. Reinforcing this: they almost lost in deep-blue NJ despite the GOP candidate barely running a campaign. That's a very bad sign.

      1. The GOP Guy could still win it. It's very close. But, yeah, just the fact that it's this close? And that I have relatives there who are Democrats but voted for the Ciattarelli?

    2. To put it bluntly: the democrats suck.

    3. The fact that Youngkin was clearly not part of the Trumpista movement helped a lot too. If he actually had been a Trump pick with Trump down there stumping for him every day, he would have lost big.

      This election came to down the parents. Not Republicans parents, but parents on the left, right, and the vast middle. Most politicians forget that a third of all voters are NOT part of a tribe, and one does not win a general election they same way one gets the nomination in a primary.

      1. Things leftists believe for 100 Alex.

    4. Expect the Dems to attempt the same nonsense they pulled in California when the L.A. Times declared Larry Elder as the black face of white supremacy only this time to newly elected Lt. Gov.Winsome Sears.
      Another one left the plantation.

  18. How many votes cast in this election and how many cast in Virginia for the 2020 election?

    1. About 4.3 million in 2020, about 3.2 million this year.

      1. How many in 2016 and when coonman won?

        1. ~4 M in 2016 for president, ~2.6 in 2017 for governor.

          1. Interesting. Thanks.

  19. People are getting tired of being preached at by smug, self righteous liberals. Critical Race Theory is the catalyst behind the revolt against the post modernist neo-Marxist democrats. People simply won't stand for this rubbish, which is exactly what it is,rubbish. McCauliffe exemplifies the attitude of liberals which is: "we know what's best for you and you don't" or "you're all evil racists because you're white".
    Or in the case of McCauliffe," parents should have no say in their children's education." No one has ever come out as totalitarian and authoritarian as that statement. That one statement alone caused his political suicide.
    Furthermore it appears that democrats are being swept from office across the country as people are signaling they have had enough of these self righteous preachy little wannabe tyrants.

    1. The sad part is that CRT isn't even being taught in schools. But the Democrats are so eager to take the opposite position from the Republicans, that they end up defending that it is.

      CRT, like any critical theory, is not something taught at the elementary school level. It's a very esoteric and specialized thing at the university level. It's wrong of course, like all critical theory, but the idea of a sixth grade curriculum including CRT is as silly as a sixth grade curriculum including postmodernist literary theory.

      But the acronym "CRT" was a useful signal to highlight some very questionable things being pushed into schools.

      The solution of course, is not Republican control of government schools, but the complete abolition of the government school system itself.

      1. Why do you lie so much? It’s well documented.

      2. I've literally posted primary sourced documents from Rufo multiple times the last few days. How do you remain so ignorant?

        1. This is Braandyshit; the asshole who can't tell Biden from Trump. You expect honesty from a piece of shit like that?

      3. CRT became the catch-all because "cultural Marxism," which is a more accurate description of the general anti-white tenor of today's educational curriculums, is even more vague as an identifier. CRT became the identifier due to the wokesters' race obsession.

        1. CRT is a subset of Critical Theory.

          Critical Theory is Cultural Marxism.

          Every last bit of it is a gussied up, academicspeak for "no enemies to the left."

          1. The only people who deny this are all, unsurprisingly, on the left.

      4. Again we see the pretense CRT can only meaning teaching what the theories are and does not include implementing the tenets of the theory. This is how left wingers protect CRT while concurrently pretending not to support it so they don't discredit themselves.

        In reality the Virginia Department of Education has a brief on their website describing how CRT is changing education. Facts don't matter to Brandybuck and other left wingers though.

      5. You do know that "critical theory" is exactly that (a literary theory), right?

      6. Critical Race Theory for school children is called "Culturally Responsive Teaching".

      7. the idea of a sixth grade curriculum including CRT is as silly as a sixth grade curriculum including postmodernist literary theory

        Postmodernist literary theory is in the sixth grade curriculum. They obviously don't use the technical jargon that the college professors are fond of, but literature and history are now a single combined subject concerned with narratives and contingent social 'truths' that define communities and power structures.

        That's postmodern literary theory.

        By the same token, they're not sitting down and having sixth graders read law journal articles from '90s Critical Race Theorists, but they are teaching systemic racism as fact and training children to group themselves by racial identities and telling them that it's teaching them lessons about race-based social privilege.

        That's critical race theory.

  20. MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace lamented that critical race theory, "which isn't even real,"

    I solemnly swear that I will slap anybody that ever says this in my presence.

    1. I will join your cause.

      1. ... and my Axe!!

    2. They are doing the same gaslighting they did with Antifa and the riots. Any time someone brings it up its met with "What even is Antifa? Who are they? Ive never seen or heard of them at all, this isnt a real issue"

      Then the next segment is "mostly peaceful protests" with a burning building in the background. *chefs kiss*

      1. The other funny thing is, in combination with what JohnZ points out above, they are completely detached from reality at the moment. They set up both jaws of the vice and are now getting clamped by it.

        Dems: "The other team is white supremacists!"
        Voters: "Uh huh." *Votes against Dems*
        Dems: "CRT isn't a real thing! They're using it to smear us!"
        Voters: "Uh huh." *Votes against Dems*

        Even passive voters who hate white supremacists and give zero shits about CRT have to look at it and say "If CRT isn't a real thing, why do you think everyone's a white supremacist?"

        Time to come up with some new lies.

    3. In fact, I will Jap slap anybody who ever say this in my presence.

      1. Said FDR?

    4. I solemnly swear that I will slap anybody that ever says this in my presence.

      Ooh. The famous slave owning, fascist, Eugenicist, white supremacist, neo-Nazi group, The Proud Boys, probably has your membership card and commemorative certificate all filled out and ready to drop in the mail.

      1. Many members of the Proud Boys are Hispanic.

  21. What a BS article. Ds did not betray parents at all. CRT is a made up issue and yes it is code for whites don’t want to teach history. And the other issue is Rs are pissed that schools acknowledged that covid was real by having students wear masks.
    It is Rs that have betrayed the students and to believe that Rs care one bit about the education of children is a fantasy.

    1. Narrator: Just as everyone expected, she didn't learn anything

    2. I suggest democrats double down on labeling half the country as racist bigots, while pursuing an agenda of single payer healthcare and abolishing the first and second amendments. Once you control what people are allowed to know, you won’t have any more problems with stupid voters.

      1. Half the country is racist. Single payer healthcare is popular and a much better system then we have. Ds don’t want to abolish 1A and 2A, that is just an R lie.

        1. Half the country is racist.

          99+% of humanity is racist. This is a tenet of CRT. You see it all the time, from all corners, where discriminating against Mexicans is labeled as racism despite 'Mexican' not being a race. Teaching it codifies it as part of the racist system. Again, by it's own tenets.

          It doesn't matter if CRT is real or not. People recognize the oxymoronic nature of the ideology, formal or other, and reject it. As they've been conditioned to do through 40 yrs. of Civil Rights and 200+ yrs. of civil liberties exposure.

          1. Nobody hates white people more than white liberals.

        2. "Single payer healthcare is popular"
          Free shit is always popular.

          "and a much better system then we have."
          Bullshit.

        3. "We're surrounded by racists that you only see on TV when I show them to you!"

          Find better rhetoric.

        4. Yes, yes! More of that, please. Keep telling us we're racists and that 'single payer' is popular.

          We'll come around any day now.

        5. So popular no state has enacted it.

        6. Brian

          I suggest democrats double down on labeling half the country as racist bigots, while pursuing an agenda of single payer healthcare.

          MollyGodiva

          Half the country is racist. Single payer healthcare is popular and a much better system then we have.

          ROFLMAO

          1. *chefs kiss*

            seriously, they have literally zero insight into their condition

        7. Molly giving OBL a run for his money as best parody account.

    3. Also, as Jesse lists below:

      https://mobile.twitter.com/realchrisrufo/status/1454467134067642377

      Sorry kiddo, we brought the receipts. CRT is real, and you clowns lost because of it.

    4. That is one way of looking at things. I hope you do well in life.

    5. Thank you for providing us with Exhibit A: Extreme Dissonance in the Face of Facts.

    6. "CRT is a made up issue"

      Biden siccing the FBI on parents for opposing their school boards is real.

      McAuliffe's statement that parents have no business telling schools what to teach their children was real.

      Progressives should have fun choking on those very real issues.

      1. P.S. Both of those very real things are thoroughly consistent with progressive ideology. In other words, the progressives losing in Virginia because of their ideology was also very real.

    7. Odd that people are people are so opposed to laws that would stop them teaching something that doesn't even exist.

      1. Dems: "CRT doesn't exist, and anyone who opposes the teaching of CRT is a racist."

      2. +++

        Exactly this

      3. It really is astounding watching people who decry flat earthers as stupid for wanting to teach their religion to their kids in their schools advance an ideology they openly admit is fictional on kids/schools/parents who don't want it.

        I can't tell if Neitzsche's quote got it wrong or doesn't lay it out clearly enough. In fighting monsters, you become the bigger monster. Staring into the vast abyss, you become a more expansive abyss.

      4. The two biggest pieces of evidence out there that it is real, and racist, are their response to the laws banning essentially blatant racial profiling:

        - those that wish to teach CRT were furious when they were told they could not teach it
        - the laws themselves mostly said "dont assign characteristics to someone based on their race, dont be a racist", and those wishing to teach CRT lost their minds over this.

        If I make a law saying "no one is allowed to pull their dicks out at kids on the playground" and a bunch of people angrily protest it, I have a feeling theres some fucking pedophiles in that group.

      5. CRT exists, but what is taught in pre-college schools is not VRT. The Rs are trying to ban the teaching of history they don’t like.

        1. Stop lying.

        2. No, they aren't. Go read the laws if that's what you think.

          1. I did read the laws. The Rs are banning basic history.

    8. The key difference between leftists and others is evidence. Of course they claim anyone who disagrees with them does so only because of racism. But they can never identify the racism, they just accept it as a given as they have been indoctrinated to do.

      By contrast Dems / leftists prove their racism every time they speak, from expecting people to show up on time is white supremacy to "we have too many white teachers in Virginia". While the evidence doesn't matter to propagandists it does to regular people. And they can't help themselves because extremism is the path to success in Democratic institutions.

      The more people pay attention the worse it is for Dems & the left generally.

      1. "The key difference between leftists and others is evidence. Of course they claim anyone who disagrees with them does so only because of racism. But they can never identify the racism"

        And this points to the religious nature that wokeness has taken on. Both in terms of belief without evidence, but also the weight they put on "racism" and "white supremacy". For them its the ultimate sin, so it is extremely important not to be considered as such. And those that are bad people can be labeled as such with minimal evidence to the accepted crowd.

        But its mostly their obsession. Im at the point where I just laugh when something is labeled racist or white supremacist. I care about it about as much as if someone took the lords name in vain, as a non-Christian myself.

    9. Ah, your tears are so DELICIOUS.

      I love them more than is likely healthy.

    10. Did you consider not proving that you are both ignorant and stupid, or does this just happen?

    11. When the governor tells parents "we don't work for you", he's right -- he won't be working for them for much longer.

      1. Self-fulfilling prophecy.

    12. Do you have someone who helps wipe the drool off your chin all day?

    13. Molly is the best. White Mike and his sarcumsac should take lessons. This is how you outrage troll right here.

  22. "Christopher Rufo, a conservative activist and the architect of the current CRT framing, has claimed a well-deserved victory: There's no question that his efforts to supply a memorable name—critical race theory—for the series of semi-related, clumsy diversity initiatives and questionable curriculum choices in some public schools helped raise the salience of the issue."

    A little incorrect. He didn't supply the name or brand it CRT. They directly adopted CRT and he argued that it is wrong to do so. CRT was a thing before, they started using it, and he has since argued against it.

    1. Here is Rufo posting primary sourced documents from VA the last 5 years showing the schools calling it CRT and CRT based training.

      https://mobile.twitter.com/realchrisrufo/status/1454467134067642377

      I dont know what Reason gets for lying about this and playing the lefts attempted word games.

      1. It reminds me of the Great Reset conspiracy theory, where there was never any sort of Great Reset planned anywhere, even as influential Davos-types were publicly calling for a Great Reset.

      2. No idea why he adopts their way of framing the debate. Their whole schtick is that he branded them with it and its not a real issue, but rather one that he essentially conjured out of exaggerated claims.

        The guy lists multiple examples of them directly implementing CRT, & them admitting they are doing so, but the media plays the game of essentially downplaying his claims or accusing him of demagoguing it when he is just truly shining a light on what they are doing.

        1. Activists aren't trying to convince the people who know what is going on. They're trying to influence the people who hate politics but hear the conflict and want a 15 second summary of the issue. They know they are lying, but they also know the vast majority of people will never seek out anything other than mainstream media version so they give them a fig leaf to convince them the good people have things under control.

      3. Progressives don't care about facts or reason.

      4. I dont know what Reason gets for lying about this and playing the lefts attempted word games.

        To attend the DC cocktail parties that actually take place across the river.

    2. Exactly. I can't believe Soave of all people, who should know better, wrote this up as if Rufo invented the term.

      1. He did a lot to popularize the use of the term in the current context. He says himself that he is using the term in a broad way that is not exactly coincident with the academic theory.

        1. Which is not a criticism on my part. I think it is good that he has made people more aware of this stuff and how dangerous it is and the use of the term has helped.

          1. Indeed. If Democrats can call blacks "White supremacists", which they have done more than once, whining about this is kinda amusing.

          2. It's poisonous any way you look at it. My take is a lot of the agitprop peddled by D's now is buttering the public up to force the R word. Reparations, which will blow this country apart. Underneath everything else it's the ultimate prog wet dream.

        2. He says himself that he is using the term in a broad way that is not exactly coincident with the academic theory.

          Yes, he includes the actions and programs implemented due to CRT as is perfectly appropriate. People trying to act as if a plan based on CRT "isn't CRT" are attempting to mislead the public and defend Dems and CRT.

          1. Yeah. Some of the complaints are technically correct. The practices and policies supported by CRT are not identical to the theory itself. But that fact is being used in very misleading ways to keep people ignorant of what's really going on, looks like.

  23. I'm beginning to think that much of Virginia doesn't simply think of itself as a suburb of DC.

    1. I'd actually be fine with declaring DC a state if Fairfax County could be carved off and given to them to bolster their population numbers, followed by forbidding any federal employee from buying a house within the new boundaries.

      1. Off topic somewhat, but why not a Grand Bargain to create a few new states?

        -DC
        -Puerto Rico
        -Northern California
        -Upstate New York
        -Eastern Oregon

        etc.

        1. I've been supportive of that as well. Teton County is rich shitlib central in Wyoming, and they're represented by Liz Cheney. Illinois should not be dominated by Cook County, and Colorado shouldn't be dominated by Denver and its woke neoyuppie/race-mongering suburbs.

          In fact, I'd love to see Colorado's Western Slope break off from the rest of the state, shut off the Colorado River diversions in the name of "environmental protection," and tell the Front Range to go fuck itself.

  24. The bottom line is that even people who pay little attention to politics realize we can't have racists running the school districts. What's astonishing is that Dems didn't realize being so open with their racism was going to be a problem.

  25. Youngkin is not bed of roses. He's good on education, in comparison to his opponent. And this election came down to the parents. But he's pro-qualified immunity and other crap. So Virginia gets the bad governor, not the even worse governor.

    But seeing this loss handed to the Democrats is awesome. They still don't get it. People don't want masters lording it over them. And the "We Are Your Masters" party just lost a state. Pass the popcorn.

    1. Schadenfreude is the only true electoral pleasure of the libertarian.

      1. How quoteable and true. As Papa Heinlein observed, there may not be anyone to vote , but there are always lenty of people to vote against. Virgiinians voted against some very deserving losers.

        1. Sorry for the extended italics. For and against are what I meant to stress.

    2. Wow, what a reach to try to both sides this. Pretty pathetic actually.

    3. Brandyshit is still trying to excuse his inability to tell the difference between Biden and Trump.
      He's a real asshole in that regard.

  26. Atlanta Braves - 7

    Houston Astros - 0

    Greg Abbott demands recount!

    Has anyone checked papers on Jorge Soler? Is he legally allowed to play baseball in the US?

    Where is the ball which somehow left the stadium? Is a hit like that even possible according to the laws of physics?

    There are many unanswered questions and we know you can’t trust Georgia.

    1. It's great seeing cheaters lose.

      1. Did not see any cheating. Some close calls.

        Max Fried probably had the best six innings of his life. You could see it in him when he went to the dugout. His focus. No runs. No walks. It just happened for them. It’s just a game.

  27. McAuliffe, a Democrat, made the statement that "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach."

    This wasn't a statement about CRT or COVID rules. This was a public servant forgetting (and denying out loud) that public servants (including teachers, school boards, education planners and governors) work for the public.

    1. What he was saying was that parents should have no say in how we want to brainwash and indoctrinate children into socialist theology and that includes critical race theory.
      As some progressives have already stated, your children no longer belong to you, they belong to the state.
      McCauliffe is another of these statist liberals.

  28. these are the kinds of mornings when Joy Reid's thoughts are delicious.

  29. also delicious watching Terry McAuliffe fall *down* for once

  30. Many members of the liberal media don't even believe it exists, and have accused the GOP of fabricating the issue. As Youngkin's victory became apparent, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace lamented that critical race theory, "which isn't even real," had swung the suburbs 15 points in Republicans' favor.

    That's a lie, and you know that's a lie.

    If "CRT" didn't exist, then the Democrats wouldn't be fighting parents and the GOP about it

    Christopher Rufo, a conservative activist and the architect of the current CRT framing, has claimed a well-deserved victory: There's no question that his efforts to supply a memorable name—critical race theory—for the series of semi-related, clumsy diversity initiatives and questionable curriculum choices in some public schools helped raise the salience of the issue.

    "Critical Race Theory" is a name and concept invented by left wing academics back in the 1980s. It is what undergirds teh Democrats racist approach to indoctrination

    Rufo is identifying what the Dems are doing, not making anything up.

    You should try not making things up, too

    1. If CRT did not exist then it would need to be invented.

  31. what has been termed "critical race theory" by right-wing activists who oppose it

    The fuck?

    Dudes, Soave, CRT IS WHAT THE PEOPLE WHO CREATED AND TEACH IT CALL IT.

  32. As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of? I’ll tell you. Woke identity politics. That’s what. Check this quote from the new Lieutenant Governor of Virginia…

    When I joined the Marine Corps, I was still a Jamaican. But this country had done so much for me, I was willing, willing, to die for this country," Sears said during her victory speech early Wednesday morning. 
    She then led the boisterous crowd in a "USA" chant. 
    "In case you haven't noticed, I am Black. And I have been Black all my life…”

    So fucking what? How about you a.) go stick your Marine Corps up your arse and b.) stop mentioning that you are Black all the time? We get it, Jesse Fucking Jackson, you have to deal with people who look at you because your Black. Fucking deal, ok? God… woke identity politics is the worst. How about we talk about the inherent contradictions of the working class taking on the burdens of their rich bosses and then go on and talk about concepts related to false consciousness and drop all this woke identity bullshit? That’d be a start.

    1. How about you pay your mortgage.

    2. Dude, you're halfway to sanity! You got it that the left has pushed the social issues too far.

      Now complete your journey into the light and acknowledge that property rights are just as fundamental as free speech or peaceful assembly.

    3. As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of?

      Your weight problem?

      1. Paying his mortgage.

      2. "As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of?"

        Always being wrong?

        Nah, that can't be it ...

    4. The false consciousness is communists blaming successful people for their problems.

    5. California delenda est.

    6. Did you not get your nap today? Seem a little cranky.

      "As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of? "

      Not being able to find your pacifier, lack of snack packs? Finding object permanence difficult? No critical thinking abilities?

      Usually all consistent with the problems a Marxist faces.

    7. Go suck the formaldehyde out of Lenin's dead cock, you worthless, racist piece of shit. Those last three brain cells of yours are doing you no good at all.

      -jcr

    8. no one believe you really think that way

    9. As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of?

      Gulags?

    10. As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of?

      Starvation?

    11. As a Marxist, You know what I’m sick of?

      Lysenkoism?

    12. The only reason you people are into Wokeism is because you never could sell Americans on Class War, so it"s your own damn Socialist, Marxist fault if you have to deal with Wokeism.

      Oh, by the way, being a U.S. Marine is inextricably part of Winsome Sears' being ("Once A Marine, Always A Marine"), so she doesn't need to use it as a suppository, as you suggested. However, if you are a Foreign or Domestic Enemy of the U.S, a Marine will gladly use their boot as a suppository for you.

  33. Hey last night’s choice in Virginia was a choice between possibly the most colorless Dem pol in the country and possibly the most soulless corporate CEO in the country. The CEO won. So what?

    1. Run better candidates, get better message, be a better non-sociopathic person

      All good starting points for your ilk

  34. DER… THE LIBRULS KEEP TEACHING THE 5 YEAR OLDS CRITICAL RACE THEORY. THEN THEY GO AND HAVE SEX WITH 8 YEAR OLDS AT COMET PIZZA BING BONG. NO WONDER THEY LOST!!

    1. And he moves from denial to anger.

      1. He’a going through the 7 stages of grief.

    2. Pay your mortgage.

    3. That'll work

  35. And yet, to listen to the leftist commentary on this, the big issue is that Bite-me couldn't get the green bad deal through congress.

    I do hope that Nancy, Chuck, AOC and Bernie keep right on thinking that too, and just keep pushing good and hard on it. The results in Nov. 2022 will be truly amazing!

    1. Saw that as a headline at WaPo.

      1. These fools are a fantastic example of a circular firing squad, whether you agree with them or not. They can't even do "bad" well.

  36. Glenn Youngkin Defeated Terry McAuliffe Because Democrats Are Stupid, Arrogant Progtard Assholes.

    FTFY

    1. That's nothing new. The difference this time is that they were doing a shitty job of hiding it.

  37. as long as there are government schools, what is taught in those schools is a huge issue. The GOP shouldn't abandon the fight just so they can take their kids elsewhere. That's part of it, but isn't the whole battle. The primary purpose of schools is the education of children, not a jobs program for leftist radicals.

  38. All these hot button social issues are ignoring the fact that Glenn Youngkin was an executive with the highly-corrupt Carlyle Group. This private equity juggernaut is responsible for high crimes and massive financial frauds. At the state government level things like tax increment finance and section 8 tax credits, and development contracts go a long-way. Focusing on non-issues like CRT is the way these crooks get people distracted.

    1. You're doing great

    2. Cry more

  39. Joy Reid now thinks

    Since when?

  40. To speak of the Democrats ‘betraying’ parents, one would have to show evidence that they were on the side of parents within memory, and I’m not sure that’s possible.

    Say, rather, that McAwful was defeated because he allowed far too much of the contempt Democrats feel toward parents to show.

  41. Despotic Dems or less despotic Rems? Not a choice for liberty, for freedom loving people. Boycotting the vote, the system, the rulers? Now, that's "striking at the root of the problem". That's standing up for yourself, for your sovereignty, for self-rule, for a paradigm shift in politics.
    The world will follow our example.
