Well, That’s Certainly One Take

AOC Says McAuliffe Lost Because He Was...Too Moderate – PJ Media

Sure. Let’s go with that.

With a straight face, the erudite Congresswoman explained: “I know that Virginia was a huge bummer. And honestly, if anything, I think that the results show the limits of trying to run a fully 100% super-moderated campaign that does not excite, speak to, or energize a progressive base. And frankly, we weren’t even really invited to contribute on that race.”

Wait a minute. If McAuliffe didn’t “speak to or energize a progressive base,” it certainly wasn’t for want of trying. He called for teachers to be hired not on merit, but to satisfy the requirements of “diversity.” As parents in Virginia and elsewhere are rightfully outraged over Critical Race Theory and all of today’s fashionable sexual madness being taught in public schools, McAuliffe argued against a parental role in education and declared that only “experts,” not parents, should approve textbooks. McAuliffe claimed last Sunday that Youngkin was “ending his campaign on a racist dog whistle.” Meanwhile, his supporters worked hard to smear supporters of his opponent Glenn Youngkin as white supremacists.

Yeah, that was the problem. They needed to move farther left.

I’ll agree that McAuliffe isn’t as far left as AOC, but the backlash from the voters was because they didn’t like the direction, not because you didn’t go far enough.

I hope she can convince more people of this though. If so, the Left will keep losing elections.
