OK, Virginia Republicans, Independents, and Parents — Put Up or Shut Up
by
Glenn Youngkin (Fox News/Youtube)

It is a very simple proposition. For Virginians, it now is time to put up or shut up.

The rest of the country does not want to hear about your schools or the critical race theory textbooks being used to poison your children for life — even more toxic than if they were swallowing colorful Tide pods. We don’t want to hear about your rising violent crime statistics. About the Biden administration’s methodical replacement of your voting majority with illegal immigrants who, in time, change your demographics as they ultimately get amnestied, their teens get DACA’d, and their subsequent generations are born on our American soil and immediately become citizens with voting rights.

We don’t want to hear about the inflation now ravaging your economy. And we darned well are sick of reading and hearing the lies of what President Trump said about Charlottesville, where he unequivocally condemned Nazis and White Supremacists — and Antifa.

All we care about now is whether you arise by next Tuesday, November 2, if you have not yet done so, and send a clarion call and ringing message to all of America that you, chosen by the national gubernatorial election calendar to stand at the fore of the American conscience, are sick and tired of being force-fed by The Squad and the regressive “progressives” and Woke — and their ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, and Washington Post media that march goose-step lockstep with them.

Vote the Left out.

It is in your hands. And don’t use that lame, bogus excuse that “there is no point in voting because it is rigged.”

First, that is a lie. No matter what anyone believes about last November 2020, this one is not rigged. If Franklin Roosevelt said “We have nothing to fear but fear itself,” then this time “the votes to throw out the McAuliffes and to elect the Youngkins will not be there only if they are not cast.” Indeed, if I were on the other side of the political aisle, I would not even bother arguing the issues — because the Democrats, liberals, so-called “progressives,” and Woke lose on the issues — but I instead would be spreading on social media that the machines have been programmed in Venezuela and the fix is in, so don’t bother voting for Youngkin.

The fix is not in. Not on this one. We saw in Georgia what happened when just enough disgruntled Republican conservatives sat it out to allow Raphael Warnock, a racist who is completely unworthy, to slither in to give the Democrats the U.S. Senate by the skin of their teeth.

Go out and vote for Youngkin.

Is there something more precious to you than your children? Your gold? Your baseball or football teams? If so, pursue your gold, and let the country — and your children and grandchildren — demise.

But there may never have been an American governor’s election more critical than this one for which there has been a more clear choice between your children and your comfort. You can stay home and not vote. You can belly-ache about the state of being. Or you can throw out the Left in an election that really may be one of the most pivotal last stands we all can make for the country we once knew.

They on the Left are destroying us. Economies can be rebuilt. Armies can be resupplied. Even populations can be restored — albeit with some major difficulty. But if our children and grandchildren are lost, our society is lost. The Left methodically has poisoned our children and grandchildren for half a century, beginning on the college campuses in the 1970s, brainwashing students, and then moving as many of them as possible into teaching. The teachers’ licensing schools were turned Left. Teachers with few other marketable skills started coming out in droves to teach high schools and elementary schools. The Left simultaneously started taking over school boards. Curricula started changing. Textbooks were changed.

For half a century, American parents have not grasped what has been going on — even though it all was in the open. Kids would come home and talk, but parents did not ask, did not focus, did not listen. On school faculties, conservatives no longer were being hired. Other conservatives who had been hired before their politics had emerged were being fired. They would be “canceled” long before the term gained currency. Long before “Replacement Theory” was being applied to voter demographics, it was being applied to school and university faculty hiring. For nearly half a century, it has been the dominant practice for colleges to high schools to elementary schools to hire people on the Left for permanent tenured teaching positions, refuse to hire conservatives except for token short-term positions, and fire conservatives when their private political beliefs emerged.

School syllabi and curricula changed. If you happen to mention to students that there are only two genders, you cannot get hired. If you were hired before the subject came up, they fire you. If you have tenure and cannot be fired, they induce students to go on social media and to create Twitter storms and Facebook campaigns of defamatory deceit and brazen lies, calling you “racist,” attacking your “White privilege,” and even accusing you falsely of sexual misbehavior, as they did to Brett Kavanaugh. The aim is to destroy and force broken tenured teachers to resign rather than to face public obloquy. And indeed, most people are too weak to stand and fight back, to defend themselves. Moreover, to fight back for one’s honor, dignity, and reputation costs money — sometimes six figures, just to sue for one’s reputation in civil court.

So this has been going on for decades, and so many American parents turned blind eyes, focused instead on Zombie cable shows — now replaced by “Squid Games” and Koreans dying when losing contests like “Red Light, Green Light, 1-2-3” — while their children were being destroyed. Imagine: a nation of parents focused more on the latest cable TV show than on the content of their kids’ education. Thus is a country lost.

And then, finally, along came COVID. Suddenly, fortuitously, classrooms were closed and classes were moved to Zoom on home computers. Suddenly, as if by Divine Revelation at Mount Sinai, parents saw — and heard with their own ears — the pure, unadulterated intellectual excrement and academic poison being taught to the children they were feeding, clothing, and presumably were sheltering and educating: delusion over what sex their own boys and girls are and lies about American history, race, and even numbers and simple math.

It is all out there now. If the Virginia gubernatorial race, despite all this, goes to McAuliffe and the Democrats on Tuesday, November 2, then start packing it in. You may find temporary reprieve in Texas and Florida, but the Left will aim for them next — as they have done to Ronald Reagan’s California and Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Arizona.

Or Youngkin and the Republicans win. A message gets sent: Today we began to take back America.

Virginia Republicans, Independents, and Parents — it is time for you to put up or shut up. And G-d help us all if you miss the moment.
