According to a recording obtained by Fox News, former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who is running for governor again, was caught on tape this month describing Critical Race Theory (CRT) as nothing but a “right-wing conspiracy.”
McAuliffe was asked by a woman in June to comment on CRT, a topic that has roiled public school systems nationwide and has made particularly strong waves in Virginia’s Loudoun County, where ongoing protests by parents against divisive race-based curricula have gained national attention.
“It’s another right-wing conspiracy. This is totally made up by Donald Trump and Glenn Youngkin. This is who they are. It’s a conspiracy theory,” McAuliffe replied.
Fact check: McAuliffe’s reply is a grotesque, bald-faced lie.
His remark came a week prior to the National Education Association (NEA) coming out in support of Critical Race Theory. Predictably, NEA has donated more than $100,000 to McAuliffe. He also received substantial donations from another major teachers’ union and CRT supporter, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).
Conspiracy theory? The real conspiracy is that propagandists like McAuliffe are hiding the truth about the subversive CRT, which is a Marxist ideology designed to inculcate racial division and anti-Americanism.
