Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe caused a firestorm on social media following his comment during his debate with Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
Youngkin rebuked McAuliffe Tuesday night for vetoing a bill that would have allowed parents to remove controversial books from their school libraries. The former governor responded, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach… I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decisions,” he said.
Youngkin, however, rightly stated, “I believe parents should be in charge of their kids’ education.”
Sean Parnell, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, tweeted in response to McAuliffe’s comment, “For a moment McAuliffe showed you what he really believes & it should frighten every parent.” Indeed, it should terrify and galvanize every parent into action.
“The reality is, all radical leftists think this way,” Parnell added. “They believe they know what’s best for you & your children. They want total government control over every aspect of your life.”
Exactly. And that is the mindset of today’s entire Democrat Party.
