“On Day One, I’m Going To Ban It;”; Youngkin Goes After Critical Race Theory

It was reported earlier today by the Epoch Times that Virginia’s gubernatorial race continues to heat up over the influence of critical race theory (CRT) in K-12 education, with Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin vowing to ban the Marxist ideology “on day one” if elected, and his Democratic opponent Terry McAuliffe insisting that it has never been taught in public schools.

With only two days to go until Election Day and early voting underway, Youngkin pledged on Sunday during an interview with Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin” that he would ban the teaching of CRT, which he said divides children into groups of “oppressors” and the “oppressed,” pitting them against each other.

Fox News went on to report that Youngkin explained that CRT “teaches children to see everything through a lens of race and then to divide them into buckets and and have children [who] are called privileged and others [who] are victims.”

“[I]t is just wrong,” he added after claiming his opponent, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, “introduced” “the first instances of it…during his administration.”

Youngkin’s comments come as the Virginia governor’s race nears a critical point. With the election on Tuesday and a chance that a winner may not be decided until a few days thereafter, the race has turned nastier. The Lincoln Project admitted to planting tiki torch-wielding people in white shirts and khakis at a Youngkin rally on Friday in an effort to link the candidate to the white supremacist groups that attended the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally.
