    Democrat Terry McAuliffe Scrambles to Course Correct After Parents Comment: ‘My Words’ Taken ‘Out of Context’

    ASHLEY OLIVER 19 Oct 2021

    Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who is running for governor again, released an ad this week clarifying that he has “always valued the concerns of parents” after he was hit with a tsunami of backlash for a comment he made about parents’ role in education in the last gubernatorial debate.

    The new ad features photos of McAuliffe and his family as McAuliffe emphasizes the importance of parents in schools, a message that comes after McAuliffe said during the debate September 28, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

    McAuliffe’s debate comment was met with a barrage of criticism, several op-eds from media outlets and interrogations from reporters, and fresh attacks from his Republican opponent, Glenn Youngkin, who seized on the moment and launched a “Parents Matter” initiative to amplify the two candidates’ contrasting positions on education policy.

    In McAuliffe’s new ad, shared by the Virginia Scope, McAuliffe says, “As parents, Dorothy and I have always been involved in our kids’ education. We know good schools depend on involved parents. That’s why I want you to hear this from me. Glenn Youngkin’s taking my words out of context. I’ve always valued the concerns of parents”:

    The ad represents a shift in messaging for McAuliffe, who has otherwise been focusing largely on tying Youngkin to former President Donald Trump, painting Youngkin as extreme for his pro-life stance, and highlighting his support for coronavirus vaccine mandates versus Youngkin’s rejection of mandates.

    Youngkin spokesperson Macaulay Porter said in a statement that McAuliffe’s new ad signals he is “struggling to save his campaign” as polling indicates the candidates are in a dead heat with the November 2 Election Day quickly approaching.

    “Two weeks before Election Day, Terry McAuliffe is struggling to save his campaign,” Porter said. “After 3 weeks of confirming more than half a dozen times that he meant exactly what he said in the debate, McAuliffe has been ordered by panicked DC Democrats to stop spouting anti-parent screeds.”

    Porter added that McAuliffe’s “attempt to fool Virginians is pathetic, and parents know the truth because the videos don’t lie.”

    Youngkin’s campaign also released a video of McAuliffe repeatedly doubling down on his controversial debate remark:

    He has no shame. “I was taken out of context, but I will not prove that by showing the context or any old quotes. Just believe what I am saying right now. History doesn't matter.”

    Not surprising. Democrats always claim that they're always being taken out of context while everyone that is against them isn't.

    Simple solution. Parents need to take their kids out of state schools en masse. Then they have no need to tell the state schools what to teach.

    Not so simple. That means if you want your kids to be educated you have to homeschool them, and most 2-income households don't want to live on just one income, and probably don't have the stomach to homeschool.

    The solution is simple though for some it may be harder to implement than others. That said, there are schools that are not state schools, no you don't have to home school to get out of state schools. And there are free or almost free online curriculums with video lessons. *cough* Ron Paul curriculum *cough*. And more and more people are working from home so that 2nd income doesn't necessarily preclude home schooling. People basically had to do that last year when many schools were shut down. Some got used to it and just didn't send their kids back to in person public school.

    He is. Look into his resume. He hasn't practiced medicine in 40 years. Heads of the various agencies are PR men just like the Pres. Donald went to Fordham, another Jesuit school. Most of Bush, Clinton, Obama, Donald, Ol' Joe etc cabinets are Jesuits/Catholic, with some Jews (administrators of the Roman legal and financial system) and some POC for "diversity" scapegoating.

    Good point about working from home. That fact has changed the homeschool paradigm - for the better.
