The Democrats would have you believe Republicans are a bunch of right-wing racists.
But Americans are catching on to who the real racists are.
And a high-profile civil rights leader just called out Democrats on racist rhetoric.
All eyes were on Virginia this month as the blue state flipped red in a big way.
Democrats spent their final days leading up to the election fussing and fuming about Republicans “politicizing” school board elections.
No doubt, they were shocked when numerous Republicans swept into office along with new Governor Glenn Youngkin.
That includes Winsome Sears, Virginia’s first female and woman of color to serve as the commonwealth’s Lieutenant Governor.
Sears, who was born in Jamaica and came to America as a child is exactly the type of candidate Democrats like to pretend doesn’t exist.
Sears served in the United States Marine Corp and is an unapologetic Second Amendment supporter.
While there tends to be a lot of talk about “strong women” in politically correct circles, the reality is probably a bit much for them to handle.
Jayson Miyares also made history, becoming the state’s first Latino Attorney General.
The results may have shocked Democrats, but going into the election, a Virginia civil rights leader warned that former Governor Terry McAuliffe’s obsession on the race of public school teachers is an “explicitly and implicitly racist approach to education.”
McAuliffe wanted to increase the number of black teachers to equal the number of black students saying, “so what I’m going to do for you—we’ll be the first state in America. If you go teach in Virginia for five years in a high-demand area—that could be geographic, it could be course work—we will pay room, board, tuition, any college, any university or any HBCU [historically black colleges and universities] here in Virginia.”
“Why is he talking about providing special assistance to teachers, candidates, and then talking about HBCUs?” Bob Woodson, President of the Woodson Center, asked during an interview with Fox News, “That’s more than a [racist] dog whistle—that’s a dog megaphone.”
The Fox News article also tore apart the core argument Virginia Democrats were using to campaign.
“McAuliffe has claimed that Critical Race Theory — a framework that involves deconstructing aspects of society to discover systemic racism beneath the surface — is not being taught in public schools. He has claimed that concerns about CRT are a ‘racist dog whistle.'” the article stated.
Yet Woodson argued that the Democrat’s race-based approach to teachers reflects CRT.
“Everything he says echoes critical race theory,” the civil rights veteran told Fox News. “It automatically operates on the assumption that the most important aspect of our lives is race.”
Woodson said that a good education program “has nothing to do with the color of the teacher or the color of the student. It has to do with the presence of excellence.”
The clear-headed thinking prevailing in Virginia — where about half of all students are black — should serve as a warning for those who think they can use Critical Race Theory to achieve their own political goals.
Their plan to draw lines in the sand and fan the flames of a race war is going to leave them standing on the sidelines watching conservatives from all walks of life step up to get the country back on track again.
