McAuliffe Supporters Stage Tiki Torch False Flag Stunt in Front of Youngkin Bus
Lincoln Project now claims responsibility, but are they taking the fall to save McAuliffe?
A very strange story is being played out on Twitter this afternoon.
Glenn Youngkin, the Republican nominee for governor in Virginia, is in the midst of his final bus tour of the commonwealth ahead of the election on Tuesday. He stopped earlier today at Guadalajara Mexican Grille in Charlottesville and, as his campaign typically does, allowed the crowd to take pictures in front of his bus. That’s when this happened:
These men approached @GlennYoungkin’s bus as it pulled up saying what sounded like, “We’re all in for Glenn.” Here they are standing in front of the bus as his campaign event at Guadalajara started.@NBC29 pic.twitter.com/l681ejyBjc

Straight out of central casting! As you may remember, Charlottesville was the site of the infamous “Unite the Right” rally a few years back. The clowns that gathered in front of Youngkin’s bus today were dressed similarly to some protesters at that rally — and they were even carrying torches!
Terry McAuliffe staffers were only too happy to retweet reporter Elizabeth Holmes’ report. This must prove that Glenn Youngkin is a white supremacist, right? Hello, October surprise! Wrapped in a shiny bow and served on a silver platter.
Not so fast. Twitter supersleuths were suspicious right away; it all seemed a little too perfect. They alleged that it may well be that Democrat operatives played dress-up in order to smear Youngkin and help their floundering candidate.
This is so clearly a political operation organized by @AdamParkhomenko it's not even funny.
And I have the receipts.

Was this a stunt cooked up by the party — or at least a few rogue operators?
The Lincoln Project claimed responsibility for it.

However, some people think LP is taking the fall because others have possibly been identified and appear to be current or former Democrat/McAuliffe operatives. Democrats denied involvement, but some of the alleged participants have started the digital walk of shame — protecting accounts and scrubbing personal information.
But a reminder that McAullife’s staffers immediately started spreading it around almost as if they knew it was coming
How did VA Dem staffers get involved in doing it? How much did McAullife’s campaign know
This raises more questions https://t.co/VdFwpN40yl

UPDATE: The staffer has now removed her picture as well as her bio stating she works for @vademocrats. What the f is going on? https://t.co/UumytBFUr8 pic.twitter.com/1YmFoAcFK7

Never forget how staffers on Terry McAuliffe’s campaign immediately spread this psy op, saying it’s “disqualifying” and that “this is who Glenn Youngkin’s supporters are” pic.twitter.com/vmLb6S85l9

Terry McAuliffe's campaign was feeling so desperate at their terrible poll numbers that they made a bunch of their staffers dress as white supremacists and condemned them to being memes for the rest of their lives.

In case you haven’t been following, five Democrat operatives, apparently staffers for the McAuliffe campaign in VA, were outed as tiki torch-bearing white supremacists today. Their presence was promoted by the McAuliffe campaign, journalists, and Democrat political commentators.

This isn’t typically what innocent people do. They’ll usually pin a tweet saying, “Wasn’t me”, and move on with their lives. Something is definitely off here.
If this little stunt does prove to be an effort by Democrats to discredit Youngkin, it’s abominably stupid at best and downright despicable at worst. And it means that Glenn Youngkin is doing so well with Virginia’s voters right now that the only way to stop him is to cook up a controversy.
And, let’s face it, Terry McAuliffe has earned his spot atop the dumpster fire. He’s running a campaign against Donald Trump and concerned parents — and no silly campaign stunts will erase that.
Putting young campaign staffers in a creepy and uncomfortable position is very on-brand for the Lincoln Project. So is setting donor money on fire for something that backfires hilariously.
Also, they misspelled Youngkin's name. https://t.co/qGIUkj0zdl

to the full extent allowed by law.
This wasn’t a ‘stunt”, it was a hoax and that is the way it was tweeted and retweeted. Nor was it a Lincoln Project, the players have all been identified and they are local Democratic Party officials and volunteers.
Rats, all of them.
IF REPUBICANS DID THIS — THEY WOULD BE IN SOLITARY
I think it’s safe to presume that McAwful and his staff had a role in this – or at least tried to gain from it by spreading the LIE.
Virginia Voters do not want these race-baiters in office. In fact, they should be prosecuted.
MORE DIRTY TRICKS – FROM THE PARTY THAT HAS BECOME KNOW FOR IT.
2014 to 2017 – Hunter Biden sell influence
2016 – Clinton gets DNC to undercut Sanders Campaign
2016 to 2019 – Russia Hoax
Feel free to add to the list . . .
It was clearly a hoax meant to be taken as the real thing.
If it was ‘stunt’ the fake white supremacists would not be locking and deleting their twitter accounts. They didn’t expect to be identified so quickly. If ever.
Jussie Smollett got away with his idiotic and poorly thought through hoax for a lot longer than these morons.
These are the people who claim they can competently govern the state. McAuliffe has demonstrated how incompetent he and his staff is.
The democrat strategy is to win the election by hook or by crook.
When I saw these photos it looked more like fraternity wanna bees pledges doing some stupid stunt to become brothers by making themselves a laughing stock.
The boy lovers club (otherwise known as the Lincoln Project) have taken ownership of this fake race attack.
So it’s not really a surprise these Democrats orchestrated the race attack to begin with. Its also not surprising other Democrats just happened to be there to capture this race attack and broadcast it as hard as they could.
A hoax is a stunt.
How stupid do you have to be to think this kind of stunt would be effective?
Maybe McAuliffe really is in that much trouble.
Honestly, they are idiotic to think that it would work, but they’re not really idiotic for trying it.
I’ve said this for a long time. This is why they do crap like this, why they haul out absolutely laughable bullshit sexual assault accusations from decades prior that magically disappear, why they stand up and outright lie about crap like this.
BECAUSE THEY PAY NO PENALTY FOR FAILING.
Why WOULDN’T they do something like this? If it works, great Youngkin is a racist.
If it fails, so what? They brought ‘attention’ to the issue, and nobody will face meaningful consequences for it.
These rats are desperate to be relevant (and get back on the gravy train), so they’re cow-towing to the left.
But no one wants GOP rats, not even the left.
Yep. They do it because they can.
No consequences ever.
Even if they lose an election because of stupid tactics, they keep it up for the next one and the next one and the next one.
It reminds me of one of my favorite movies “The Night of The Hunter.” Two kids are running away from the evil preacher in the middle of the night, they travel for miles and eventually hide in a barn to rest. In the wee hours of the morning, before the sun crosses the horizon, one of the kids wakes up to barking dogs in the distance. The kid looks way out into the field and is stunned by the silhouette of the singing preacher riding a horse.
“Don’t he never sleep?”
That’s how I feel about these people. They never quit. Their drive for conquest is, to me, unnatural. They have no purpose in life but to rule.
Since when does business casual attire make you a white supremacist’? Or is it supposed to be the baseball cap addition that indicates racism? Or perhaps it’s that tiki torches are culturally appropriate? I’m a little lost on the symbolism here….
Oh. And. Since when does being black while wearing business casual make a man a white supremacists?
Ha ha ha ha! I totally missed the black white supremacist!
Yeah, that’s a big clue that this is a hoax!
Were they scraping the bottom of the barrel or was the cream rising to the top?
Is there anyone who really believes the LP did this all on their own and without coordinating it with the McAuliffe campaign?
The clowns and stooges they trotted out are all VA Dem party operatives and staffers. Who are now are locking down and/or deleting their twitter accounts. They wouldn’t be doing that if they knew all along their ruse would be exposed.
I think the only open question is whether or not the LP had anything at all to do with it. Is the LP volunteering to take the blame to ‘take one for the team’? And for some under the table cash.
The LP saw which way the wind was blowing and claimed credit to give cover to McAuliffe’s campaign. No way they did that on their own, using well placed democrat activists. If it were LP, they would have used underage boys.
another site identified the fat one as a McCauliffe staffer
At least one of them work directly for McAuliffe
Remember. The unbelievable morons that thought that
A) this was a good idea, and
B) that ANYBODY would be fooled by this laughable crap
are the same people that think they’re so much smarter than you that they deserve to control every aspect of your life.
It works. It reminds people on the left of what Trump said about the fine people, even if Trump never said it, and that reminds them of how entertained they were by their own outrage, and they vote for the lefty.
The same thing works on the right. Keep track of the outrage posts.
If the race is very close, demoralizing even less than 1%of likely Youngkin voters to cause them to stay home could lead to a McAwful win.
Assuming you are unethical, immoral, and unprincipled and the only thing that you care about is winning, it wasn’t a terrible plan.
The execution was terrible. Using easily identifiable Democrat operatives was retarded. If they’d used random, unidentifiable people, then it would still look staged to almost everybody. But there would be no proof. In that case, they’d be able to deny involvement. Then it might work on someone who works all day and only has time to glance at a headline. In a razor thin race it only has to work on a tiny percentage of people.
They couldn’t find anyone stupid enough to do this so they used Democrat party workers.
You have to admit they look pretty incompetent.
so they did find people stupid enough…democrats
Social Jussie Warriors.
Mist them with indelible ink spray and then track where they go, afterwards.
Or, bring out a firing squad – being they’re already lined up.
The democrats already have a “squad” that fires off their mouths at every news conference.
Got my Halloween costume all set now. Easy Peasy.
All you have to do is hold out your arms, make two fists and pretend to be president of the United States.
Matching white dress shirts and khakis?! That’s almost as cute as this picture tonight of Biden and Macron in matching blue suits.
That was dangerous, the protocol officer should be fired. What if Biden forgot which one he was?
You could tell it was a hoax because they never lit their little tiki torches but instead just stood there like idiots waiting for the next cue what to do.
Also, someone should explain to them that Tiki torches are designed to be used *at night*.
False Flag and a false confession, unless the Lincoln Project can call on Democrat operatives whenever they need them.
And Tiki torches? We’re the going or coming from a Luau.
After the election identify the false flaggers. Pretend you fell for the false flag and call them relentlessly out for being what they pretended to be, contact their employers and demand the fascists be fired.
Are these people really stupid enough to think they would escape cancellation? Do they think they have any worth to their employers after they burned themselves publicly?
This is one of the very rare occasions cancel culture is to be embraced.
Some leftist rabble-rouser named Lauren Windsor has fessed up to organizing the hoax-
Scumbags one and all.
Good grief, man. Everything about them is fake!
The emperor has no clothes.
Yeah, they were almost as fake as Joe Biden pretending to be president.
Another black eye for the Lenin project. This Alinsky tactic goes all the way back to Nixon.
Funny thing is all participants have to go underground scrubbing a nice resume of Leftist signaling on their former social media outlets.
* GRIN *… any questions
The true believers genuinely think this wasn’t a loss. They believe it brings up the NC incident and ties Youngkin to the ‘horrors of Trump’. It is frightening how thoroughly the control of their thoughts have been ceded to the progressive left.
I’m thankful for all the memes. The’s a photo with the FBI guys in shorts next to them. That double points. My fav is a KKK person in front of the bus with a pic of Northam saying it was him under the KKK robe.
Wait a minute, how on earth did tiki torches become racist? And when did this happen? Was there a memo?
I was particularly confused by the tiki torches, too. Were they going to have an outdoor party?
Guess I’m going to have to get rid of my torches….
Wait – I just figured it out: they were protesting the admittance of Hawaii to statehood. That’s racist against Asians/Pacific Islanders and, as a bonus, explains the lone black guy.
