McAuliffe Wants To 'Diversify' Virginia’s Teachers

The candidate criticized the high percentage of white teachers as Youngkin leads in the polls


At a campaign event in Manassas on Oct. 31, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe lamented how many white teachers Virginia has.

“We got to work hard to diversify our teacher base,” he told the audience. “Fifty percent of our students are students of color, 80% of the teachers are white, so what I’m going to do for you, we’ll be the first state in America. If you go teach in Virginia for five years in a high-demand area — that could be geographic, it could be course work — we will pay room, board, tuition, any college, any university, or any HBCU [historically black college or university] here in Virginia.”

McAuliffe included “addressing modern-day segregation” in his campaign platform. He intends to add a school integration officer within the Virginia Department of Education and to “improve access to affordable housing” so families can relocate to areas with high-performing schools.

According to Fox News, “McAuliffe’s reference to historically Black colleges and universities and his framing the program as intended to address this racial disparity suggest that he intends to use the program as a kind of affirmative action, prioritizing non-White prospective teachers.”

Glenn Youngkin, the Republican challenger, replied by reviewing another one of the Democrat’s promises: raising teacher pay.

“Forty-three-year career politician Terry McAuliffe failed to keep his promises to raise teacher pay to the national average the first time he ran for governor, so now he’s trying to scare teachers by lying about Glenn Youngkin’s education plan,” a campaign spokesman told Fox News. “Unlike McAuliffe, Youngkin will keep his promise to raise teacher pay and propose the largest education budget in Virginia history.”

Education has loomed over the Virginia governor race for months.

Youngkin and McAuliffe have clashed over Critical Race Theory, book banning, and parents’ role in education throughout the campaign, notes Newsweek.

President Donald Trump has thrown his support behind Youngkin and is set to host a virtual campaign event for him on Nov. 1. Trump called the Republican a “good man, a hardworking man, a successful man” who “loves Virginia.”

“Terry McAuliffe is a low-life politician who lies, cheats, and steals,” Trump added. “He was a terrible high-tax governor and would be, if elected, an even worse governor again.”

McAuliffe served as the governor of Virginia from 2014 to 2018. Current President Joe Biden has spoken out on his behalf and criticized Youngkin’s connection to Trump.

At a campaign event last week, Biden saidWell, just remember this: I ran against Donald Trump. And Terry is running against an acolyte of Donald Trump.”

McAuliffe has fallen in recent polls, creating a tight race that culminates on Nov. 2. 

A FiveThirtyEight poll indicated Youngkin pulled ahead of McAuliffe among voters on Oct. 28. As of November, the poll shows the Republican in a narrow one-point lead — 47.7% to 46.7%.

    Those of us who have at least 2 brain cells know that there is NO election integrity. Hell, those of us who grew up in Dumbocrat cities, counties and states learned very early that there was no use voting. We learned this when our ages were still in the single digits.

    As I grew older, I studied the Constitution and the thought processes that conceived of it. I learned ( am still learning) about those who signed the Declaration of Independence and wrote the Constitution. I have concluded (subject to change) that while the Constitution has no EXPLICIT procedure for dealing with bad elections, it does have an IMPLICIT procedure. In my opinion (it is just an opinion), the founders of this country felt that if elections were fraudulent then there WAS NO GOVERNMENT.
    Now think about this for a second, the Founders (based on all information I have so far) felt that if elections were fraudulent then the government had ALREADY been taken over by a usurper and any government in place was NOT legitimate. I seem to recall something about protecting our country/constitution from enemies both foreign & DOMESTIC. Come to think of it, I seem to remember that one of the first 10 Amendments addresses this in an oblique manner. 😉

    Defending the Constitution involves violence-lots of violence. I am asking you, the reader of this comment, to ask YOURSELF, “What will I do?” Will you be a poll watcher? Will you get together with friends/acquaintances and go down to the polls with various blunt/sharp objects to protect the poll observers? If some ratchet bitch comes running out of the democrat offices demanding that the poll watchers stay 50ft back, will you beat her black ass white (fuck political correctness, we know the ethnicity of the soldiers)? If a bunch of poll workers attempt to double feed Dem ballots, will you stop them and permanently teach them the error of their ways? When a bunch of hoodrats wearing fake cop uniforms show up to “fortify” the polling place(s) will you see to it that they never get back up? When some badge-wearing POS-s show up to arrest you “in the name of the law”, will you make them pay for their treason? Will you make the POS’ bosses pay for their treason? Can you do what is needed to get information from the soldiers about those hiring/leading them?

    The previous paragraph is scary isn’t it?

    Well, here is the thing…If you can’t get your shit together because of religious reasons or just being stupidly middle class (mostly religious) then just take all of your worldly possessions and a tube of KY jelly, find the nearest illegals, hand them your stuff, bend over and tell them to have their way with you (I recommend using the KY at that time).

    I hate this. Youngkin can’t win. You know the woke voting rights bill that is waiting in congress? You know the same laws that exist in California? Virginia passed it a couple of months ago. You know, Voter ID, Signature match, poll watchers, campaign contributions, curb side voting, drop boxes, and operatives going door to door to collect votes. Yup! All there. The only way he can win is if the number of votes is so overwhelmingly for Youngkin that there is not enough suitcases under tables to make up for it.
