Thursday on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, failed vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) reacted to the San Francisco school board recalls by claiming that Virginia’s education system, which pushed the racist, divisive Critical Race Theory curriculum despite the objections of outraged parents, was strong under Democrats.
Kaine said, “Under Democratic leadership in Virginia, we have some of the best public schools in the nation, right? I mean, what do you want to look at, SAT scores, NAEP scores, the quality of our student performance, the quality of our higher ed institutions? Under Democratic leadership, it was high… I don’t live in San Francisco, but, what I hear is, overwhelmingly, the voters are like, you guys were more focused on renaming schools than you were on creating a learning environment that was safe. And if that happens, yeah, you’re going to find that local people will switch out their local leadership and they’ll put somebody else in.”
Kaine is glossing over the fact that SF parents threw out the radical school board members because they were pushing woke garbage on their children — just like in Loudon County, Virginia, the locus of nationwide attention as complaining parents were treated like domestic terrorists by no less than the Biden administration’s Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Then Kaine went on to fear-monger and demonize parents — because that’s what Democrats do: “What I worry about, and we saw this in Virginia, it’s one thing to say, I don’t like what the Loudon School Board does, it’s another thing to send a letter to their house saying, I’m going to kill you and your children. The violent threats against these poor school board members, most of whom are parents with kids in the school who want to run for next to no money, no pay, to try to do a good job…”
Kaine is equating justifiably angry parents with terrorist threats, and defending woke school board members who are trying to undermine parental control and indoctrinate children with race-mongering “social justice” programs.
