I remember all the stormfag crowd saying Youngkin was a flop and a neocon who would only let this shit continue, but he was done more than anyone else and has shown how completely easy it is. He didnt sit around bitching or trying to compromise or debate this issue. The debates over, everyone has made their mind up either way on this issue and now its just a question of action and he has completely gutted CRT from his state.

this is what politics is all about, gaining institutional power and then using that power to help friends and punish enemies.

Damn straight. I had my doubts, but I was wrong - Youngkin and his team are killing it here in VA.

I think most had doubts. But then day one came and he's been doing things like this.

Youngkin has the potential to turn VA red for a good while into the future.

Its an uphill battle just because you have DC right there.

you have a massive DC tumor in the north that wasnt part of the state before..

Sure. My point was that if he leads and governs as well as Desantis for example that'll push VA more red. You do have different dynamics at play with the increasingly based 2nd gen plus Cuban immigrants & other Hispanics. I digress.

Main point: if you do amazing job then you pump your party numbers and votes up.

Trump did such an amazing job he got millions more votes when he ran the 2nd time, for example.

It's good to be skeptical. The conservative movement has been fucked over and over and over by grifters and fakes. I don't believe in ANYONE until they DELIVER conservative/populist legislation.

Governor Youngkin is absolutely crushing it. What a winner. He is executing on his promises and does not apologize for his swift actions. He doesn’t compromise. He just executes with the mandate he was given by the people. What a leader. This is what we can only hope we get with other Republican Party officials.

I think he hangs out on this board and is a fren.

At this point, he's done more than Trump ever did after he won in 2016.

This is what I was waiting for him to do back then - fire every single Obama soyboy lackey still in the various government positions.

But Trump was seeking reconciliation, after a bitter presidential race - and that was his mistake.

I am one of those that doesn't see him ever becoming President again but I really really would like to be proven wrong.

If he does become President again, what Youngkin is doing is what I want him to do - fire everyone.

Fuck, that's what made him fucking famous in the 2000s - his catchphrase "You're fired!"

I member that too. Not sure if doomfaggery from our members, or external shilling

Shilling. Trying to dishearten frens. I come here to be encouraged with high energy, not to vent like some soy cuck. I hope other frens who have been “here” since 2016 understand that, and introduce the new frens to the idea.

Perhaps we need a “high energy” revival.

Lesson learned from Trump's first term: fire literally everyone the moment you arrive. Anyone who worked for the enemy previously will sabotage you endlessly. So remove them from the building. Immediately.

Maximally apply every ounce of your power and influence. That's what leftists did for decades, and look at where we are now.

Yeah, all Trump did was on like his last few days sent out some impotent executive order telling people not to preach CRT thing in government facilities, which was ignored anyway.

This is an academic issue and needs to be taken out in academia, not politics

They should be fine with this, since CRT is not a thing 🤷‍♂️

That's the argument I keep using. If it doesn't exist, banning it should cause no harm.

Youngkin cleaning house here, it's awesome to see! I'm excited to see what he does next.

That being said, my local school board just voted to uphold their mask policy in defiance of Youngkin's EO. Apparently they are waiting to see the outcome of the case going before the the VA Supreme Court.

It will be interesting to see what parents and their kids do come next week. (My kid is home schooled so it won't directly affect her, but it still pisses me off.)

Why not eliminate the department altogether?

Yeah how much better is Diversity, Opportunity and Inclusivity? Hopefully it's not bs optics. Giving it the benefit of the doubt right now.

Criminalize CRT and set up a tip line for students

I love a tip line with rewards idea!

All the Dems had to do was delete it from their official Department of Education website. That's one of the ways I can tell the news lies if they repeat "CRT wasn't even being taught in schools." Look at the official website. Yep the actual book was on the official website.

This is great but some schools have teachers who have other ideas. Not time to get too comfortable. Be vigilant.

On a side note our school district sent out a letter saying the masks are no longer required for students in class but while they are on the bus they will be required -- something about busses being public transportation ruled by the feds. Oh and the teachers still have to wear them. Ugh!

Salesman slaps Youngkin's state - "You can fit so many patriots in here".

Other Republican governors - If DeSantis & Youngkin can take control from the lunatics then so can you. Step up your game or get voted out.

it's sad that I cant enjoy anything Youngkin or Desantis is doing because I'm waiting for them to totally fuck us.

But they studied this in college and grad school. How will they find work in the real world??

The problem is the colleges. They weaponized these fools with degrees that are worthless, the people have to eat and they metastasize and take over institutions and perpetuate these rules and roles.

Younkin shouldn't be appointing anyone as the Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. It should be abolished. I'm sick of the stairstep lack of change that Republicans are known for, we keep moving the wrong direction.

Trump… TRUMP. Pay fucking attention to VA. Learn from it.

It’s called firing commies
