Terry McAuliffe’s Colossal Blunder Earns Him the Ire of Parents

Terry McAuliffe’s Colossal Blunder Earns Him the Ire of Parents

Instead of “clarifying” or apologizing to parents, McAuliffe keeps defending his remarks that parents shouldn’t “be telling schools what they should teach.”

It was the gaffe heard ’round the commonwealth.

Democrat Terry McAuliffe, who wants a second chance at ruining Virginia, committed a blunder of colossal proportions during a recent debate against his Republican opponent, Glenn Youngkin. McAuliffe said parents shouldn’t “be telling schools what they should teach.”

Yes, amidst a headline-making, state-wide uprising of parents who’ve had it with their children being made political pawns by radical school boards and woke school officials, McAuliffe dared to tell these parents, in no uncertain terms, to buzz off.

As is typical of Democrats, he conveniently forgets that parents, in part, fund these schools. They have every right in the world to tell schools what should and should not be taught.

The story doesn’t end there, of course. In the weeks following the debate, McAuliffe took every opportunity to double down on his remark. While parents pleaded with school boards for a seat at the table, the guy who sent his kids to an eye-watering expensive private school told them they had no right to that seat.

The Youngkin campaign took note of McAuliffe’s smug, tone-deaf defense of his remarks and put out a brutal ad earlier this week. In it, McAuliffe blithely tells parents they do have the right to say to schools they want teachers vaccinated, but “we don’t want them picking books.”

They don’t call him McAwful for nothing.

This self-inflicted blow might prove fatal with the voters. Democrats don’t win in Virginia if they don’t take population-heavy Northern Virginia. What Dems seem oblivious to this cycle is that the Northern Virginia of 2021 is not the Northern Virginia of 2020, which went for Biden. Party lines don’t matter when radical, power-hungry politicians and bureaucrats threaten your parental rights.

Recent polling shows a virtual dead heat between McAuliffe and Youngkin. Angry suburban parents might prove to be the mightiest voting bloc in recent history.

Election Day is November 2nd.

I believe it was Limbaugh who dubbed this guy “The Punk”.

Fits.

Virginia- McAuliffe needs to lose by 3% to actually lose the election beyond the measure of fraud.

With rigged elections what chance does the Republican challenger have?

Honestly, I think this would have been more of a national blunder than a state of VA one. This state has gone to the crazy Dems of the north. I hate them all and wish we could secede.

So telling the truth about your opinion of your constituents is a blunder.
Good to know.

I took my daughter to a ‘Trunk or Treat’ celebration in Virginia. I thought they would be handing out Halloween candy. But, it turned out to be Stacy Abrams handing out fraudulent McAuliffe ballots from the back of her SUV.

I think I don’t want to call it a blunder.
I want to call it “being honest about his agenda and intentions” and I want to encourage him to keep on being “honest”.

Come on, Mr. McAuliffe.
Tell us more.
Let the voters know what you really think.

And if he gets elected, his constituents get the government they deserve.

    Even if it’s election by fraud, if the people allow it, they get what they get and deserve.

    Interesting cynicism…do you believe you personally deserve Joe Biden?

    Not all of his constituents will vote for him, just idiots and dead ones.

      The sin of deliberate omission by the Republican half of the Uni-Party in their silence since actually before November 2020 means we do bear some blame for not punishing them.

every once in awhile public employees need a firm reminder that they work for us, not the other way around.

He also said CRT was just a “right wing talking point”

— show how clueless he is

Meh. The urge to virtue signal often outweighs even the basic survival instinct (see: any deep blue hellhole like Portland). The ability of progressive parents to absorb punishment meted out by those whom they worship is staggering.

I am not convinced that McAuliffe will lose any support among those who only want to vote in a way that they can Feel Good About Themselves (TM) and win approval of their commie peers.

“It was the gaffe heard ’round the commonwealth.”

I’m not sure it was a gaffe. Our Faux President commits gaffes, but he’s just stupid! McCauful really believes that parents should not control their children’s curriculum. The Left is all about control, everything, all the time. They can live your life better than you.

It’s tied. Half the voters want more of him.

Any number of above 20% would be remarkable IMO, but it’s ~50%

Let that sink in. Wow.

    That’s what I despaired about the 2020 election. Fraud notwithstanding, at least 70,000,000 Americans voted for Biden over Trump. Trump might not have been everyone’s cup of tea (personally, I’d LOVE for him to be president again), but 70,000,000 Americans preferring Dems and Biden over Trump??? That’s damn nuts.

    Lets go Brandon.

      FEW VOTED FOR BIDEN

      Nearly everyone who did not vote FOR Trump say they vote AGAINST Trump.

      I recall talking to people before the election – family and friends – who said they would vote for [Stalin, Hitler, a monkey, the Devil himself, etc . . .] before they would vote for Trump.

      At the time I said, be careful – you may get worse. They all felt older, middle-of-the road BIDEN could not be worse.

      LOOK WHAT THEY GOT.

      THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO – BY THEIR NEGLIGENCE – GOT BIDEN ELECTED.

      I now tell them it’s their fault we are in this mess. They do not like to hear it. Maybe next time they will care as much for who they vote FOR as they do about who they vote AGAINST.

    It’s tied according to the polls.

    Polls are punditry, not news. They exist to sway opinion, not measure it.

      It’s not wrong by more than 4-5%.

      This is a large number of people who metaphorically want to stick their own heads into a wood chipper.

If Newsome could pull out a “win” with his record, McAuliffe could be a shoo-in. Dems are nothing if not stupid when it comes to voting against their own interests.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to txvet2. | October 21, 2021 at 12:50 am

    That is indicative of something. First is the 2020 theft. Then Newsom. If McAuliffe wins it means that with fraud, the Third Box is moot. Once is chance. Twice is coincidence. Three times is an enemy act of war.

McAuliffe’s right…since America officially died on January 20th……they are no longer “your children,” they belong to the collective.
