The liberal media’s immediate reaction to the left’s defeat in Virginia on Election Day was to start screaming at the state and accusing voters of forwarding a racist agenda because Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin (R) had promised to get Critical Race Theory out of schools there. But to help perpetuate the false narrative, they ignored how those same Virginia voters elected Winsome Sears (R), a black former Marine who immigrated to the U.S. from Jamaica, to be their lieutenant governor.
While ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News avoided talking about Sear’s historic victory on Wednesday, they also perpetuated the big lie that CRT did not have an influence in Virginia schools. “[Youngkin] also tapped into frustration with COVID regulations and vowed to ban critical race theory, though it's not actually taught in Virginia public schools,” proclaimed ABC congressional correspondent Rachel Scott.
We know this to be a lie because just before the election, a Fox News investigation found a book recommended for teachers that urged them to inject CRT into their lessons. And there’s evidence that gubernatorial flunky Terry McAuliffe (D) had pushed CRT during his first stint as governor.
