If Terry McAuliffe is trying to undermine the rise of Glenn Youngkin, he needs to try a different strategy.
McAuliffe, the former Democrat Governor of Virginia, has recently waded his way back into the news by running once again for Virginia’s upcoming gubernatorial election, which is set to take place this November.
McAuliffe will face off against Glenn Youngkin, a businessman and first-time GOP representative that has become increasingly popular across the state, particularly with his focus on unity, as well as law and order.
Sheriff Matt Robertson, for instance, speaks glowingly about Youngkin’s support for police, which has been decimated by Democrat smear campaigns for years, especially since 2020.

On his end, McAuliffe is attempting to dissuade voters from favoring Youngkin by bashing the Republican’s views on education, which unequivocally support parental influence in their children’s education.
More specifically, McAuliffe publicly proclaimed that parents should have nothing to do with their children’s education, which probably wasn’t the smartest comment to make in a nation that has become increasingly concerned with critical race theory and a number of other divisive educational tactics.

Really, Mr. McAuliffe?
Needless to say, if parents prefer for their children to avoid reading graphic content, as well as avoid praying to gods that they do not really believe in, then they should have the right to intervene.
After all, if a parent can refuse for their child to stand for the flag, then they should also be able to stand for their child’s ability to disengage from highly questionable activities in the name of “education.”
Then again, since the educational system has long been permeated with Democrats (many of whom predictably refused to return to work during COVID), what else is to be expected?
Stephen Miller, a former Trump adviser, wryly noted that “every parent in Virginia” should hear McAuliffe’s brusque comments on education before voting.
Fortunately, most parents will have an opportunity to do so, as Youngkin has already converted McAuliffe’s frightening commentary on education into a compelling political ad.
However, while McAuliffe’s words make a great political ad, Sean Parnell, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, also points out the truly frightening implication of the Democrats’ words.
“For a moment McAuliffe showed you what he really believes & it should frighten every parent … The reality is, all radical leftists think this way … They believe they know what’s best for you & your children. They want total government control over every aspect of your life.” [Source: Breitbart]
Not only do they want total governmental control, but they also want the truth to be entirely hidden, as evidenced by the “feedback” Kamala Harris recently gave to a university student who was predictably ranting and raving about Israel.
“Your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth, cannot be suppressed and it must be heard …
This is about the fact that your voice, your perspective, your experience, your truth, should not be suppressed and it must be heard, right? And one of the things we’re fighting for in a democracy, right?” [Source: Breitbart]
“Your perspective” is one thing.
“Your truth” is quite another …
In fact, creating false truths is a hallmark of authoritarian regimes, and Harris’s encouragement of blanket lies should be a major cause of concern for all Americans.
David Friedman, who served as Former ambassador to Israel with the Trump administration, excoriated Harris’s remarks on the truth, blasting them as “shameful.”
“Shameful. There is truth and [there] are lies. No one is entitled to their personal truth. This attack on Israel is simply a lie and VPOTUS should have called that out.” [Source: Breitbart]
On the contrary, the VPOTUS extolled the student’s hatred of an American ally, going so far as to elevate the accusations against Israel as “truth.”
Then again, Harris, just like McAuliffe, apparently have zero qualms about the virulent influence of education upon American youth minds’ today.
After all, it’s the younger Americans who appear the most in favor of extreme socialism, and those beliefs didn’t emerge in a vacuum …
Instead, they began with classrooms wherein parents have limited, if any, control.
