These people seem very threatened by "critical race theory". I don't particularly get it. Black people were literally enslaved, then segregated, and now have their voting rights under attack. Just like we should learn about the holocaust we should learn about our own nations oppressions and genocides. I'm not sure why it hasn't come up yet but we should give Indian reservations senators. I thought the entire point of that bullshiat ass farking system was to "make sure minority voices are heard". Guess it only counts if you're a Southern slave owner? I want two farking senators from the Dakota reservation. I want two farking senators from the Black communities in Harlem and Bedford Stuyvesant. Where are the refugees represented? I want two farking Senators representing Syrian and Guatemalan refugees.

I say this as a white male. Diversity makes us stronger, it's my favorite part about America. Let all the voices be heard. I'm not afraid of becoming a minority.

Let freedom farking ring! I believe in you and you and you. I want Black people and American Indians and refugees to feel welcome, loved, and have opportunities here.

Everyone's welcome in my house.

There's nothing wrong with cooking with lard, that shiat is flavorful. I cook with reserved bacon fat constantly and it's awesome.

Opposing CRT is now de rigour amongst even VA GQP?

Just saying you vote GQP says you are a bigot but I guess these asswipes want even further proof.

Along with buying onto the big lie that racism is a thing of the past they are also required to buy into the big lie that the "stop the steal" nonsense was anything other than the GQP pretending they didn't lose in order to justify farking up future elections mixed with typical Trump denialiam.

Oh and that those attempts to deny especially black voters access to the polls is anything but bigotry mixed with cynical political calculation.

"Most Virginia Republicans are painted as these big hard-right, hard-conservative voters who only care about Donald Trump. That's not true," Doran said.

Indeed. They also care about being "pro-Second Amendment, anti-abortion, pro-business" and importantly, anti-science. So you have avowed Trump loyalists and those who don't name drop him, but they all push Trumpian policies.

But no, don't call them hard-right.

Living in my liberal bubble here in Northern Virginia...

It is shocking to me just how assbackwards the rest of Virginia acts. It is so disheartening to drive down 95 and see huge-ass considerate flags on huge flagpoles adjacent to the highway.

I realllly doubt Virginia will have a Republican governor anytime soon. I mean, we get legal weed and ability to grow it, in 53 days.

I like my liberal bubble thank you!

They're recreating Jim Crow for all non-rich people so they have to come up with this big lie bullshiat.  The big lie is that their agenda is to not shorten the lifespan of everyone who isn't them.

Dear World:

Virginia is for lovers. Before you book a hotel or go to one of our restaurants, please keep in mind that a state senator and governor candidate does not feel safe going outside without a military firearm. If the people responsible for the government don't feel safe then maybe you shouldn't travel here.

Every GQP candidate needs to be asked in a public forum, if they will take a knee and bow to Trump and pledge their allegiance to him? If the say no.  the base will reject them. If they say yes, the moderates will run like hell from them.

my local NextDoor has a politics group.  A bunch of them took that 4-color grid test to see where everyone was (left/right,auth/libertarian).  A lot of the so called "conservatives" fell in the center or a little to the left.

leading one MAGAt to question the grid itself.  They were so close to getting it.

This is the second time I have seen a group of conservatives take these tests and be shocked how many 'liberal' positions they agree with on an issue-by-issue basis.  Yet, collectively, they cannot vote for a democrat.

I recall a lot of VA residents wanting the schools opened.  Concern about kids educations, right?

Out of a compromise, the current Gov stated that "kids will go to school in summer to make up for the losses this past year".  How'd that work out?  Are the VA parents so happy their kids are going to be able to "catch-up" academically this summer?

What's that? summer school is only voluntary, like always?   No surge in enrollment?  People aren't giving up vacations for children's education?

Trumpers in 2022 are going to be a clown show.

I have a friend who supports a higher minimum wage, universal healthcare, and is pro choice (those are just what I can remember off the top of my head) but he will never vote for a Democrat because he hates that they push rights for minorities. He's also not getting vaccinated despite being a pilot. He grew up on an Iowa farm and just can't break the "liberals bad, vote Republican" dogma.

Was just talking with a pilot buddy of mine yesterday. Hobby pilot. His day job is a mechanic for Delta.

He got Covid early on last year. Hasn't been able to fly since due to lingering side effects, and is probably out of flying until next year while continuing to jump through the FAA medical screening process.

It's frustrating to hear about people like your friend. Because of that 20-30% of our population Covid will continue to linger and mutate and force the rest of us to likely need to receive boosters periodically for the next ten years.

Lard happens to be one of the most healthy ingredients you can cook with.   As long as it was rendered from a properly raised hog and not processed with hydrogenation.

They can keep going so far of right.....straight to insane. They'll win SOME seats but Virginia is doing pretty well. If they don't eat their own in Democratic Primaries, we'll stay at least barely Democratic. I think the Trump Party scares about 10% of Republicans and that's enough to win with narrow margins. We can't take it for granted, but if we do what we need to do, Democrats in Virginia win. And we get weed - and a State Election Day!
