It seems that to be a radical left-wing Democrat in good standing, one must be willing to deny reality and find a way to blame Donald Trump for everything. Case in point: On Monday, Fox News reported that Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe falsely claimed that critical race theory is a “right-wing conspiracy” created from whole cloth by former Pres. Donald Trump and and McAuliffe’s GOP opponent for governor, Glenn Youngkin.
“That’s another right-wing conspiracy,” he told a woman who asked him about the subject. “This is totally made up by Donald Trump and Glenn Youngkin. This is who they are. It’s a conspiracy theory.”
Translation: Don’t believe your lying eyes and ears. Despite the fact that a full-scale war has broken out between states and communities across the country that have roundly rejected the racist curriculum while others have embraced it, it doesn’t really exist. The fight, according to McAuliffe is over the emperor’s new clothes.
Here’s audio of his statement:
Fox News added:
A source familiar told Fox News those comments were made on June 4, after months of debate surrounding racial content in Virginia schools. Youngkin, the GOP nominee for governor, has been outspoken about the issue and attempted to tie it to McAuliffe in May.
He told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that “it just seems that Terry McAuliffe and the left, liberal Democrats here want to take our education policy from having everybody in the fast lane to putting everybody in the broken down lane.”
Youngkin and others have blasted the Virginia officials for proposing a series of controversial measures that appeared to limit advanced opportunities for students.
“Critical race theory is not a political game or talking point to Virginians,” Youngkin spokesperson Macaulay Porter told Fox News. “Terry should tell that to the parents, teachers, and students in Loudoun County, Fairfax, and across the Commonwealth who are up in arms about the lefts’ political agenda being forced into classrooms.”
The Fox report went on to say that “Virginia state employees have proposed eliminating accelerated math courses and advanced diplomas.”
Reaction on Twitter has been pretty much what you’d expect:
First it was "conservatives don't understand critical race theory."
Then it was "that's not real critical race theory."
Now it's "critical race theory doesn't even exist."
And it's only Monday.https://t.co/dLI4NVgV53

And Donald Trump created it.
Keep in mind this is the same party that would have us believe that Antifa is just an “idea,” and the violence we experienced last summer was “mostly peaceful.” Oh, and this is the same party that spent three years spreading the conspiracy theory that Russia helped elect Donald Trump.
