I was trying to tell people that Youngkin was a globalist, Bush-lackey GOP establishment stooge but was shouted down as a "doomer"

All one had to do was look into his background, the Carlyle group, and his ties. And the fact that the GOP establishment was slobbering all over him and saying how great it was that he distanced himself from MAGA.

People kept saying that the VA election was proof that "we can vote harder to win" and thought it was some big win for MAGA.

You cannot compare the VA election to the 2020 election. The VA election was globalist stooge vs globalist stooge. Either candidate was a win for the establishment. Unlike Trump, where both parties hated him and wanted him gone because he wasn't "part of the club" and onboard with the globalist agenda.

Youngkin is just another Romney/McStain/Bush.

_Cabal_ 17 points ago +22 / -5

So was I. It was rather obvious he was milquetoast at best--a weakling. It was obvious he would fold under pressure once in office, and ultimately just be another uniparty asset.

I hate being right all the time.

Now all the faggots here who were so far up this obvious weakling's ass are going to pretend like they weren't. And then they'll make the same mistake all over again at the earliest opportunity.

And yeah VA doesn't mean shit to anything. This is literally people here regurgitating MSM bread and circuses narratives. It's almost laughable that they don't realize how easily manipulated they are by the very things they claim to be "awake" to.

These people will never change. And the worst part is they actually believe they're redpilled, when in reality they're indistinguishable from normies.

KekistaniMemeLord 6 points ago +18 / -12

Fake and gay, nobody was up this guys ass, just like this "vote harder" shit is a complete strawman from divisive faggots on this board.

Notice how Youngkin isn't mandating anything himself? That's the difference. Like the post said this was better than the alternative, literally the Clinton's bagman. If all he does is stay out of the way with shit like this that'll be fine.

Ghostof_PatrickHenry 4 points ago +4 / -0

This. I was the original anti-Youngkin shill on this site. Most people here didn’t even know who he or Amanda Chase were when the nomination was hijacked from her. (Not Youngkin’s fault— Pete Snyder was the actual establishment ringer, even Amanda Chase said that before the primary. Snyder came in second, and Youngkin was suppose to pick him to be his running. Instead he picked Winston Sears. Sorry not sorry for being more informed than all of you🙃)

We all knew what Youngkin was and what he wasn’t. And for all the hand-ringing over this statement he’s made, let’s assess what it actually means. The only authority a locality has over these businesses is the right to issue minimal fines. They cannot suspend business licenses, ABC liquor licenses, or certificates of occupancy (all of which were threatened by Ralph Northam). These licenses are issued by the state, except for the C.O.’s, and there is no existing state law that allows a municipality to revoke a certificate of occupancy for defying local COVID mandates.

So while some restaurants may comply with these local ordinances (I have not heard any rumblings of such things, and I live in one of the few blue Virginia county) most will happily pay the fines and operate at maximum capacity, because the alternative is going out of business. (Speaking as someone plugged into that network of entrepreneurs.)

So what will ultimately happen, should these commie authoritarians attempt to target local businesses with fines, is that the entrepreneur community will mobilize against them and have them ostracized and removed from office. These are entry-level political seats, and none of these people (even those on the Richmond city council) have any real connections that could protect them from community revulsion.

(For comparison, look at what happened when Trump left office, and we were left without a strong executive at the national level. We turned our attention to our local/state politics, and we all saw the outcome of that 2 weeks ago. So I welcome any dynamic that forces normie discomfort and compels us all to awaken to the reality of our situation and into mass civil disobedience toward our local politicians.)

There is / was some hope for Lt.

You were voted in to destroy CRT, not show how Republicans can do CRT better than the Democrats...

Even if someone had confidence in him as a candidate for whatever reason, it was obvious he was the hand picked RINO when the Virginia GOP changed the rules for the primary. Nothing is 100% but at the very least it definitely looked like Amanda Chase had a good shot at winning the primary, which they needed to prevent.

SmokeyAF 3 points ago +3 / -0

I agree with this assertion, the changing of the process to arrive at a desired outcome. I supported Chase, but held some doubts how she’d fare with northern VA.

That's was a win, we needed some good news this year.

If he doesn't appease the Dems who voted for him, how is he going to get re-elected in a blue state?

conservativeyuppie 14 points ago +15 / -1

He can't get reelected anyway, VA governors can't serve more than one term consecutively.

crowsfury 5 points ago +6 / -1

Ah then he's a traitorous coward. If he can't run for reelection, he has nothing to lose anyway, so why isn't he going full MAGA?

conservativeyuppie 11 points ago +11 / -0

Because he was never MAGA to begin with. The Republican Party of Virginia changed the primary to a delegate system at the last minute to prevent the actual MAGA candidate from getting nominated since she was leading in the polls.

MAGA1775 6 points ago +6 / -0

Because he's not MAGA. Not even close to MAGA.

Look into his background and ties with Bush and the fact he was the CEO of the Carlyle group, a globalist investment firm with ties to Soros and big banks. He was heavily favored by the GOP establishment over the actual MAGA candidate.

He's another globalist RINO of the same ilk as people like McConnell/Graham/Romney/etc.

Infringedshallnotbe 3 points ago +3 / -0

For the record he can run for reelection if he waits 4 years after his first term ends. However, he is not "going full MAGA" because he is not MAGA, he is a typical DC area "conservative" which isn't much of one at all. Hopefully he helps make some good things happen with the tax situation in the state and some other financial issues, but not a lot of confidence on my end.

yeah because we don't constantly keep falling for it every time they pull this stunt.

BoughtByBloomberg2 3 points ago +3 / -0

I didn't say he wasn't a rino. I said media lies. What are his reasons for no mandate? Is he one of those retardicoms who believe in small government so local governments should handle it?

If that is his motivation it requires a different attack angle. It should be made clear that the right to bodily autonomy supercedes any other concern he has and he owes it to his constituents in the whole state to garuantee that and protect their rights from mini tyrants.

If he's just a vax fag you tell him to eat shit and that you will do everything to sabotage his career.

Goozmania 12 points ago +12 / -0

ckover9000 4 points ago +4 / -0

Same here. They took the primary out of people's vote to keep her out. Still glad McCawful didn't win, though. And she's still a senator so at least we still have her there. If enough people get involved in the process we can vote in an actual general primary again and hopefully she's still interested.

Lmao useless faggot GOP. Every time. This is why they didn’t cheat to win, the gop uniparty made an agreement to have VA be “red” for a bit

MAGA1775 4 points ago +4 / -0

Yep, it was globalist stooge vs globalist stooge. There was no need for widespread cheating to win like with the 2020 election to oust Trump.

People kept saying VA was evidence that "we can vote harder to win" -- but you can't compare it to the 2020 election.

The Republican Party of Virginia changed the primary to a delegate system at the last minute to prevent the actual MAGA candidate from getting nominated since she was leading in the polls.

It was just like every other election before Trump came along where only uniparty-approved candidates were running. A win/win for the globalist establishment no matter what happens, while grifting citizens by making them think there's actually a difference.

N900mixalot 7 points ago +10 / -3

This place is getting worse every damn day.

FROM the fucking article that NOBE OF YOU mitches read:

"Localities are going to have to make decisions the way the law works and that is going to be up to individual decisions but, again, from the governor’s office, you won’t see mandates from me,” Youngkin clarified in a one-on-one interview over the weekend…


Local control is a fine conservative solution to the dilemma of different communities having different preferences. If your county commissioner or school board is being too heavy-handed (or not heavy-handed enough) with COVID protocols, you can throw the bums out. Youngkin’s hands-off policy should mean a reprieve for unvaccinated state employees who don’t want to comply with Northam’s rules, too. If the new governor means what he says, those anti-vax workers will no longer be under pressure to get vaccinated come January.

victory2024 6 points ago +6 / -0

I read the article and I still have a problem with this. Unlike Florida where DeSantis banned all local mandates, Youngkin is going to let local counties still fuck people over with mandating vax and masks.

Some of us were trying to scream from the roof tops to warn everyone, but no one wanted to listen. Its really disheartening watching our side continue to get grifted over and over. This wasn't even a hard one to peg if anyone actually took a moment to look into Youngkin's background.

I think it was mostly Trump endorsing him at the last second though, and because of that people thought he was "MAGA vetted." But unfortunately Trump's endorsements haven't been good. He seems to just endorse whichever Republican is leading in the polls.

bigbossman2 1 point ago +1 / -0

We have to choose the right property vetted Republican candidate before they run against a Democrat, by then it's too late.

Ed_Ward 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes this looks bad, but there was literally no other option for Virginia voters. The VA GOP didn't let voters into the primary, they hand picked Youngkin, so it was either him or the CRT communist democrat.

MAGA1775 2 points ago +2 / -0

Obviously with only those 2 options, I'd have voted Youngkin too if I lived in VA.

My arguments were more pointed toward the people who took the VA election as proof that "we can vote harder to overcome the fraud" and that Youngkin was some major win the America First/MAGA agenda.

LarryBugman 6 points ago +6 / -0

Yeah, no one said that this was about anything other than keeping that even more dangerous dem rat-man out of the position.

TheRedPlank 6 points ago +6 / -0

It seems a really hard thing for GOP purists to get on board with. They traditionally want to limit bigger government getting involved with individuals, localities, businesses, etc. But at a certain point they need to get tf over it and step up to the plate.

sustainable_saltmine [S] 8 points ago +8 / -0

limit government's ability to make your life more difficult, yes, but higher government should step in to stop local fiefdoms from getting out of control and abusing citizens. Like how SCOTUS is supposed to smack down out of control lower courts

He won in VA because he convinced enough Dems to vote for him instead of McAuliffe. It's obvious isn't it? Youngkin is worried about his political future in a blue state. That is why he won't do the right thing and stay on the MAGA path.

Smurfection 2 points ago +3 / -1

More people should have turned out in the primary then. If Republicans don't want RINOs winning in purple areas, then start showing up for the primaries and caucuses. The reality is Youngkin won because a lot of DEMOCRATS were disgusted with the way DEMOCRATS trashed parents, promoted CRT and lied about sexual assaults to protect whatever the "boy in the skirt" crowd identifies as.

We could have run a MAGA candidate that could have ended up winning because most people were voting against the Democrats and would have voted for anyone that wasn't a Democrat. Youngkin won his primary because too many Republicans thought they had to endorse a RINO to win because VA is a purple state.

MAGA1775 5 points ago +5 / -0

The MAGA candidate was going to win, and was leading in the polls, until the corrupt GOP establishment changed the rules to get their globalist lackey candidate nominated instead.

Smurfection 1 point ago +2 / -1

Not to beat a dead horse, but what rules were changed to throw the primary to the RINO if the MAGA was winning. I believe you're right because I remember reading something about that, but I just want a bit more detail.

Infringedshallnotbe 3 points ago +3 / -0

You are correct that suburban voters, whether they are democrats or republicans voted for Youngkin at a higher rate than in 2020, but you are wrong about why Youngkin won the primary.

It is possible he might have still won, but the Virginia GOP changed the rules and the type of primary because it was likely that a MAGA candidate (Amanda Chase) was going to win if they had a regular primary. They instead turned it into a delegate convention drastically reducing the number of voters that turned out with those restrictions.

Smurfection 1 point ago +1 / -0

My state of Minnesota is a Caucus state so our primary is a bit involved. It starts with the precinct caucus, goes to a district caucus, then a wider district convention and finally a state convention. At each caucus, the number of delegates are chosen, either from whoever shows up or whoever becomes a delegate. As the delegate advances each level, the competition to become a state delegate becomes more challenging.

However, we have had times in the past in which we've had both a Republican endorsement by convention (endorsing convention) and a primary vote open to the general public. It's been more common in the last 15 years as Republicans in Minnesota are deeply dysfunctional.

How did your delegate convention decide delegates and where there committees that pushed out or allowed in certain groups?

Infringedshallnotbe 1 point ago +1 / -0

Definitely sounds complicated in Minnesota. Just for context, in Virginia the primary system has been much more simple. It is just like voting in a general election, you go in a vote as long as you are registered. Sometimes you have been required to sign a paper stating you intend to vote for the republican candidate in the general election, but they have no way of knowing if you did, so that is really just to get voters contact information for donation requests. Then 6 months before the primary the VA GOP changed the format and rules of the primary due to....you guessed it, COVID.

As far as what they changed it to, I would summarize it as this: It was a delegate system where if I remember correctly they did not limit who could be a delegate but you had to apply and pay a small donation (fee) by a certain date. This effectively prevented a large portion of the voters from showing up since most people don't pay attention to that level of politics. Then with the voting, it was ranked choice, and my guess is they chose that because they knew Youngkin and Synder would have a better shot over Chase with this system. Lastly, they used some equation to figure out the weight of each delegates vote based on the number of delegates voting in each location, which was 39 or 40 around the state.

I just looked up the 2017 primary and it had a total of 365,803 votes where as the 2021 primary had 30,556 votes.

Smurfection 1 point ago +1 / -0

Ranked voting is simply a way to blow out a candidate in a caucus system. It's just another way to practice "bulletted ballotting" by another name. I am very aware of the type of process that was used in Virginia and I'd suspect if you went from a "general style" primary voting system to a delegate/caucus type voting system, you lost around 95% of your would be primary voters. Yep, proving once again caucus/delegate style system are simply a way of giving a few people at the top control over the state party's nominee and endorsement process.
