People, enjoy some liberal panic. On Monday and Tuesday, MSNBC’s ReidOutJoy Reid, host Joy Reid, and other liberals panicked when they saw that Glenn Youngkin (Va. Republican gubernatorial Candidate) has the chance to upset Terry McAuliffe (D).
Of course, they took it upon themselves to lie about Youngkin on education, racism, voting, and insist he’s “worse” than “MangoMussolini” Donald Trump. When we talk about the Loudoun County teenager who A rape was committed by a boy in a girl’s bathroom, one panelist said “Youngkin and surrogates have…exploit[ed]”It is. “demagogu[e] about trans kids.”
Reid usedThe campaign as the c-block for Monday’s show, lamenting Youngkin “could reverse all of” the “progressive laws” implemented by outgoing Governor Ralph Northam (D) (whom she wouldn’t point out wore blackface) and falsely accused Youngkin of being “against racial inclusiveness in schools and says an abortion ban in Virginia is appropriate.”
Speaking to Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher, Reid seemed panicked as, knowing she’ll never be subject to so-called fact-checkers, claimed Youngkin would ban abortion:
So, can you explain why it’s even close, when you have a Trump-backed Republican who’s vowing to turn it basically into a mini-Texas on abortion and who’s, you know, out there doing the — whining about Critical Race Theory, which isn’t taught in Virginia schools?
Youngkin is a Texas resident. Has said he wouldn’t sign such a bill into a law and, on CRT, it’s Clearly false to say race-based education hasn’t arrived in our classrooms.
Reid called for an end to the Republican officeholders being elected permanently “[g]iving any Republican power seems so dangerous” as, no matter their shade of red, they’ll be “trying to steal the 2024 election for Trump”The votes for fudge and the other candidates are tallied.
Reid cautioned against a certain fate. “he is no different than any other Republican” Voters and candidates need to “[p]ay attention…because it’s the ones who try to sneak in under the radar, a lot of times they’re even worse.”
Youngkin must have been on Reid’s mind and that of her pals on the McAuliffe campaign as, right on cue, she opened Tuesday’s show with the campaign and the narrative peddled at a McAuliffe rally that Youngkin hates Black women because a woman in one of his campaign ads called for the banning of Toni Morrison’sBeloved2013
Reid used that as a jumping off point to claim “Glenn Trumpkin” was engaging in race-baiting by running a campaign “based on…the delicate feelings of conservativ-ish white suburbanites” while “pouring high octane gasoline on cultural anxiety over jobs and societal change and weaponizing anything that makes white Christians feel icky” (click “expand”):
We are just beginning ReidOut With Beloved. Toni Morrison’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, “Beloved”, tells the tale of Sethe (a ranaway slave woman) who murders her daughter in order to save the child from the traumatizing life she is living.[A]pparently, for some white parents, the real pain isn’t about black people. It’s not true. It is about their emotions and the pain they are feeling. One white parent advocated for Beloved to be banned from Virginia schools in 2013 because her son was having nightmares. Glenn Youngkin, a Republican candidate for Virginia governor, featured that parent Monday in an ad. Youngkin has promised to prohibit critical race theories being taught in Virginia public schools. But no matter. But he wants to ban Beloved as well.
[S]These are some of the reasons this is the race you need to be paying attention. You will learn everything that you need about the Republican game plan for next week, and next year. Glenn Trumpkin — sorry, I mean, Glenn Youngkin — is locked in a dead-heat with Democrat Terry McAuliffe…Youngkin is endorsed by MangoMussolini himself, but acting just moderate enough to try to snag those suburban swing voters that he needs to prevail. There is a fight for white suburb votes, and it’s happening all across the country. Republicans are trying to take control of states such as New Jersey, by playing on the fragile feelings of conservative-ish white suburbanites.
It is not a new tactic. Trump has been following the Republicans’ lead and have poured high-octane gasoline onto cultural anxiety over jobs, societal change, and weaponizing any that makes white Christians feel sick. This is akin to losing an election, and not being able to elect their preferred president. It’s also like engaging in actual history, which, let’s be honest, is not a war on critical race theory.
Reid continued to spew her foul bile and claimed Youngkin, along with his party, are against Martin Luther King Jr.’s books. “facts and knowledge,” Trans children to avoid any consequences “cis tears,” “masks and vaccines” They prevent Covid-using people from dying.
Back in reality, Youngkin released an ad supporting the vaccine and encouragingVirginians will get it.
Supposedly a journalist, The 19th’s Errin Haines said “the racial playbook” Youngkin’s using of the Beloved-banning supporter “is not limited to the Big Lie of a rigged election or voter fraud” As “[r]ace-based appeals to white voters are an increasingly perennial aspect of GOP politics.”
Reid also praised Youngkin’s ad for the Lincoln Project, a pedophile-hiding Lincoln Project. “[a]The rights of gay couples to wed are denied by nti-Semitism and racism [and] that ugly Charlottesville hate.”
Right on cue, she told Lincoln Project senior adviser Stuart Stevens that Youngkin’s the kind of person who’s “saying to white parents you have to fear books about black people or about white people ever having done anything that wasn’t amazing.”
Joy, yes. White suburbanites think slavery was our country’s crowning achievement.
As New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg would do afterwards, Stevens obliged and said the campaign hinges on whether Virginians want to support racism (click “expand”):
STEVENS – This is ultimately about race. You know that I have written a book on this subject called “It Was All a Lies”. Racism: A Sin Original in the Modern Republican Party. As Republicans we did admit that and tried to make amends. Ken Melmann was chairman of NAACP 2005 and he apologized for his Southern Strategy. All that’s out the window now. This race is a simple one. Donald Trump won Virginia by ten votes on November 3, 2020. You wouldn’t vote to elect Donald Trump on November 3rd 2020, if that was the case, why vote for him November 2nd 2021? If you didn’t vote for Donald Trump on November 3, why would you vote for him on November 2, 2021? Trump is Trump’s Candidate. And this — this issue over the only African-American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize — Nobel Literature Prize is just — embodies all of these things. You were right. It is about denigrating history. It is all about race. And, look! What’s this about cancelling culture? They’re trying to cancel the only African-American female Noble laureate in literature? The entire Republican ideology net is a fraud.
GOLDBERG : It will seem as though there are these types of Maoist education sessions in elementary schools. Glenn Youngkin has, I believe, done us a favour by saying that this is not what they are talking about. They are talking about Tony Morrison being banned. You know, They’re talking — they’ve been talking about banning all sorts of, you know, sort of, historical — the legitimate teaching of history. It’s not about browbeating children about their white privilege. Giving them an education that is comprehensive and balanced.
Goldberg touched also on the Loudoun County Rape. “Youngkin and surrogates have been running and demagoging about trans kids in schools and trans bathrooms and there was a horrible rape of a — of a — of a high school girl in Virginia that they’ve been using and sort of exploiting to act as if trans people are predators[.]”
Before the A-block wrapped, Reid and Stevens claimed without evidence that, if elected, Youngkin and all blue state Republican governors would fabricate election totals to ensure Trump returns to office in January 2025 (click “expand”):
REID: [I]If they are able to win back the states most likely to elect Democratic presidential candidates, such as Virginia and New Jersey, then it will be a success. Are you certain that the governors in question, I have no doubt about it, will try to win Trump’s election in 2024.
STEVENS: Unfortunately, no. Donald Trump is suddenly interested in governors because he can’t remember a governor of America just a few short years ago. It’s because they know that they can pass laws — they’re going to try to pass laws that, if the states are close in 2024, they’re going to try to overturn the election with these Republican legislatures. There’s not really any secret about this. The team has made clear that this all is part of an organized strategy, and it’s mostly about the race. Was there any attempt to denial certification? The reason was that the areas were so obscure and were dominated by Blacks, who were allegedly illegally voting. Because the country is constantly changing, Republicans were faced with a choice. The Republicans had two options. They could either adapt to appeal to non-white voters, or make it more difficult for them to vote. Tragically, the latter is what they chose.
