Voters have been increasingly disappointed in betrayals from politicians they have supported. For example, I was blindsided yesterday by Senator Ted Cruz talking about January 6 as if he was a radical leftist Democrat propagandist.
Usually, politicians wait until they’re in office and have some months or even years under their belts before they break their promises and go against their supporters. Inbound Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin didn’t wait to take the oath before betraying the base that got elected, namely parents who want Critical Race Theory abolished from their schools. He tapped Aimee Rogstad Guidera to be his Education Secretary. She’s not what the parents who voted for Youngkin had in mind.
According to Joy Pullman at The Federalist:
Guidera was the founder and longtime chief executive of the Data Quality Campaign (DQC). She ran the organization from 2005 until May 2018, when she left to pursue private consulting. Founding DQC is the biggest and most visible education-related job on Guidera’s resume.
When preparing for societal collapse, don’t forget the water!
Yet DQC is deeply tied to the political swamp on almost every education issue possible, including the Common Core debacle and racist critical theory. These are not just associational ties, but also major financial ties.
Despite repeated inquiries, Youngkin communications staff declined to answer specific questions for this article and instead directed The Federalist to a quote published in a Daily Wire article three weeks ago about other potential conflicts of interest between Youngkin’s education secretary and his stated education policies.
Cato Institute Education Analyst Neal McCluskey said, “The only kind of disconnect is, I don’t see anything in her past that indicates that she has a a lot of history of trying to remove things that people don’t like in the curriculum because they’re at odds with their values, or they’re at odds with how history should be taught.”
The only thing worse than a Democrat is a Republican who makes leftist moves. At least with Democrats we can see the leftism coming. Republicans are supposed to act more conservative than what Glenn Youngkin is demonstrating.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our brand new GiveSendGo page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
