Glenn Youngkin Says Virginia Parents Rejected ‘Division’ Of Biden’s Democrats Pushing CRT

Glenn Youngkin on Wednesday attributed his victory in Virginia to a “movement” of parents that began in Loudoun County as education became the central issue and propelled the Republican to victory over former Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe.

“I was really blown away by the widespread support across the Commonwealth of Virginia,” Youngkin told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in the first network interview since he was declared the winner of the Virginia governor race in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

“This campaign wasn’t a campaign a while ago, and it became a movement,” the Republican victor said, adding that “education has really become a pinnacle of this election.”

“Parents all over Virginia began to see that they really had an important (sic), decisive role to play in their children’s education,” he continued. “And when they heard Terry McAuliffe say … he wants to put government between parents and their children, this was no longer a campaign and it became a parent-led movement.”

Youngkin defeated McAuliffe by 50.9 percent to 48.4 percent in a state expected to be easily handed over to Democrats after President Joe Biden won it by 10 points in the 2020 presidential election.

Educational issues became a central focus of the campaign as parents feared they would lose control over their children’s time in school, including teaching critical race theory theory and trans students’ rights.

“So many people are trying to divide us and tell one group that they have to be different from another and that it’s time for us to come together,” Youngkin said, as people on the campaign trail told him they were tired of the division .

During his campaign, Youngkin brought it back to religion, saying that all people are equal because God made it that way.

“Here in our schools we have a moment to stop teaching our children about their differences and to teach them about the things that can bring us together and prepare them for a great life,” Youngkin said. “And that’s what we’re going to do in our schools when I’m governor.”

Conservatives have fought hard against schools that adopt the teachings of critical race theory, a way of teaching history that links the development of the US and its laws to race.

Republicans argue that this teaching is a way of making America seem like a racist nation, and they say it focuses too much on dividing students by race.

Trans problems have also been rampant in schools in Virginia, especially in Loudoun County, the richest county in the US

The Loudoun County school board ruled in August that transgender students could use facilities and participate in school groups, such as sports, that are linked to their gender identity.

Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe (left) was expected to easily take victory for his old position in a state that President Joe Biden (right) won by 10 points in the 2020 presidential election

A few months later, the affluent county of Virginia made national headlines for a case of the rape of a college student by a 15-year-old boy wearing a skirt in the ladies’ room at school.

Youngkin, a businessman before he ran, said he is ready to work for Virginians in “real human time, not government time.”

It is expected to be inaugurated on January 15, 2022.

The Democratic Party is waging war on who is to blame for the unrest in Virginia and the wafer-thin margin of victory in New Jersey. Incumbent Democrats say if Biden’s agenda had been passed before Election Day, the results would have been different, but progressive factions argue the party had to go the far left to win.

Joe Biden said Wednesday he didn’t think it would make a difference if his agenda passed in Congress before voters went to the polls, despite speculation the outcome would be a rebuke to his presidency.

Instead, the president said the large number of Trump supporters came to vote was to blame and said people are angry about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and rising gas prices.

“I think it should have been over before Election Day, but I’m not sure I could have changed the number of very conservative people who turned up and the red districts that were Trump voters. But maybe,” the president said at an event at the White House on Wednesday.

In appealing to Trump, Biden agreed at least in part with his predecessor, who immediately took credit for Youngkin’s victory, claiming that it was MAGA troops who had put him over the top — in a race that saw Youngkin take some took remarkable steps to try to keep distance between himself and the former president.

When asked whether the Democrats in Virginia should have won, given Biden won it by 10 points in 2020, the president said, “I know we did, but we also ran into Donald Trump,” a comment that suggested Youngkin a stronger and stronger less division.

Biden said he will continue to bring up Trump “because the issues he supports affect their lives every day, and their negative impact on their lives.”

“Look, I just think people are at a point, and understandably, there’s a lot of confusion. Everything from will you ever get COVID under control or will my kids go to school, will they be able to stay in school to whether or not I get a tax break that will allow me to pay for the needs of my kids and my family,” he said. .

The president added: “People are upset and insecure about a lot of things — from COVID to school to jobs to a whole host of things, and the cost of a gallon of gas.”

Progressive factions of the party argue that the Democrats need to rearrange even further to the left to adapt to the changing political landscape.
