McAuliffe: ‘Experts,’ Not Parents, Should Pick School Books

McAuliffe: ‘Experts,’ Not Parents, Should Pick School Books

November 3, 2021

Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Virginia’s tone-deaf, totalitarian former Governor Terry McAuliffe declared that parents should not be picking school books because “we have experts who actually do that.”

The host asked the gubernatorial candidate to comment upon a video in which McAuliffe said, “Parents had the right to veto books, not to be knowledgeable about it, also take them off the shelves. I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decision.”

He added, “So yeah, stopped a bill that I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they teach.”

Asked what about that clip he felt had been taken out of context, or how he would reassure parents that they have some say in their kid’s schooling, McAuliffe replied, “Listen, that was about a bill I vetoed which people were very happy that I vetoed the bill, that literally parents could take books out of the curriculum. I love Billy and Jack McAuliffe, my parents, but they should not have been picking my math or science book. We have experts who actually do that.”

The experts he’s referring to are the same radical ideologues who have warped American education into social justice indoctrination.

McAuliffe went on to smear his opponent Glenn Youngkin, falsely claiming the Republican “is closing his campaign on banning books. It’s created a controversy all over the book. He wants to ban Toni Morrison’s book, ‘Beloved.’ He’s going after someone who won a Nobel Prize, Presidential Medal of Freedom. He wants her books banned. In all the hundreds of books, you could look at, why the one black female author? Why did you do it? He’s ending the campaign on a racist dog whistle.”

These are the desperate accusations of a man who has demonstrated to Virginia parents that he and the “experts” on failed schoolboards think they can raise children better than the parents can.
