Glenn Youngkin vows to take a bold stand against critical race theory as governor

Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin on Sunday vowed on “Life, Liberty & Levin” to “ban” critical race theory on his first day as governor.

“[I]In the immortal words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we are called to judge one another based on the content of our character and not the color of our skin, ”said Youngkin. “And that’s why there is no room for the critical race. theory in our school system, and why, on day one, I’m going to ban it. “


He explained that the CRT “teaches children to see everything through a race lens, then divide them into buckets and have children.” [who] are called privileged and others [who] are victims. “

“[I]This is simply false “, he added after asserting that his opponent, the former governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe,” had presented “” the first examples … during his administration “.

Youngkin’s comments come as the Virginia governor’s race approaches a tipping point. With Tuesday’s election and the possibility of a winner not being decided until a few days later, the race became more unpleasant. The Lincoln Project has admitted to planting people wearing tiki torches in white and khaki shirts at a Youngkin rally on Friday in an attempt to link the candidate to white supremacist groups that attended the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally.

Loudoun County Public Schools Superintendent Dr Scott Ziegler has publicly lied about not being aware of sexual assault in the school bathroom. Ziegler had spoken to the school board about an alleged sexual assault in the girls’ washroom on May 28. A Loudoun County judge found the 15-year-old boy guilty.

Youngkin said school officials “quietly” transferred him to another school and “hid” the investigation from parents and the public. He allegedly sexually assaulted “another young woman,” according to Youngkin.

“[The Loudoun County School Board, Ziegler and Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney Buta Biberaj] are absolutely guilty of gross negligence and fail to fulfill their constitutional duty to ensure that our children receive a quality education, ”he said.


“[T]this is so wrong that all of a sudden the Justice Department has become a political tool to silence parents and deny them their First Amendment rights, let alone the right they have in Virginia to be. fully committed to genuinely have a say in the education of their children, ”he continued. “This is a fundamental moment in the Commonwealth of Virginia, but it is a fundamental moment across the country.
