Tuesday Night’s Debate Explains Dramatic Difference Between Glenn Youngkin and Terry McAuliffe
The Virginia governor’s race could develop into an argument with a clear choice that has real implications for campaigns across the country in 2022.
Tuesday night’s debate made clear the dramatic difference between Republican Glenn Youngkin and Democrat Terry McAuliffe. It is clear that Youngkin stands with parents who care about their children’s education, and McAuliffe stands with union owners who want complete control over our lives.
During the debate, McAuliffe made what might have been an election-disruptive mistake. He spoke honestly about the extent to which he would exclude parents from their children’s education.

Consider this exchange:
Republican Youngkin: “I believe that parents should be in charge of their children’s education.”
Democrat McAuliffe: “I don’t think parents should tell schools what they should teach.”

The following night on Granthshala News Channel’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Youngkin expanded on the difference between himself and McAuliffe:
“[McAuliffe] He believes that the government and politicians know about our children better than parents. He wants to exclude parents from getting involved in educating our kids…Virginia parents have been standing up for their children’s rights for the past 20 months, fighting against school boards that are accusing them of all kinds. trying to impose things.

“They are asking schools to open, and what you saw last night was … [McAuliffe] Don’t care what they think. He wants to direct what we learn, He wants to teach our children to think, and He wants to forgive parents for all this.”
The simple fact is that former Governor McAuliffe is relying on union bosses to fund his campaign and provide workers with the voting effort. McAuliffe has received $525,000 from the National Education Association and $425,000 from the American Federation of Teachers. $950,000 from the union’s owners goes a long way to explaining McAuliffe’s contempt for the parents.
You can better understand McAuliffe’s desire to get rid of Virginia’s right to work law when you learn that the Service Employees International Union has given $689,167 to its campaign. McAuliffe’s conversion to larger government socialism and radical policies has earned her $1.75 million from Freedom USA PAC (Mike Bloomberg’s PAC) and $250,000 from George Soros personally. It’s only the end of September, so McAuliffe’s anti-parental, pro-Union position will make his campaign even more money in October as it desperately tries to grab the governorship.
McAuliffe’s open contempt for parents and subjugation of unions may result in a loss of election.
However, McAuliffe’s open contempt for parents and subservience to unions may cost him the election. After all, there was a recent rally in Loudoun County, Virginia, of more than 1,000 people who were outraged at the teaching of left-wing extremism in their schools. Parents of students at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax, Virginia are outraged as school officials are “purging” students of Asian descent to wake up.
In fact, citizens across the country of all backgrounds are concerned that left-wing fundamentalism is taking hold in schools while standards are being lowered – or even abolished, in the case of Oregon.
Virginians have historically been proud of their education system and have valued their children and grandchildren to receive a good education. They see unions weakening this tradition and crippling the future of their children.
When McAuliffe clarified the gap between parents and union bosses in a debate on Tuesday, it could be the campaign’s pivotal moment. If Youngkin continues to escalate the issue to the next month, McAuliffe could be permanently branded as the union boss-controlled Big Government Socialist candidate – and therefore unacceptable to most Virginians.
A pivotal decisive moment like this is not new to Democrats. Consider the following examples:
In 1972, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. George McGovern announced that he would be “settled” by his vice presidential candidate, Sen. Tom Eagleton (who after accepting the nomination admitted that he had been given electric shock treatments for depression). 1,000% behind”. A week later he left Eagleton. He was defeated in a landslide.
In 1984, Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale proudly announced in his acceptance speech that he would raise our taxes. His support broke, and he never recovered. President Ronald Reagan happily compared his tax cuts with Mondale’s tax hikes. The result was a landslide.
In 2004, Sen. John Kerry was filmed windsurfing in Nantucket in a fancy dress. This convinced voters across the country that he was in fact an elitist out of touch with ordinary Americans. He lost a few weeks later.
In 2016, Secretary Hillary Clinton attacked most Republican voters as “disappointing,” increasing the voter base of Donald Trump. She was defeated a month later in a shocking trouble.
McAuliffe’s declaration that “I don’t think parents should tell schools what they should teach,” could add to this list of campaign-catastrophic mistakes.
If McAuliffe loses, it will be a real warning to Democrats across the country that big government socialist values and awakening policies may not be sustainable – even with massive union and billionaire funding. .
Last Tuesday night, the Virginia governor’s race took on a new significance as a national bellwether.
