Prior to his upset victory last night, Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin campaigned on promises to end lockdowns, stop coronavirus vaccine mandates, and remove anti-white CRT from education.
Following a tough race in Virginia against former Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe, Youngkin has become the Governor-elect, standing on a platform that has appealed to much of the Republican base, seemingly even managing to convert some former liberals who were concerned about the influence that the radical left has on the Democrat Party.
Conservatives and supporters of 45th President Donald Trump have much to look forward to under his leadership in Virginia, at least according to Youngkin’s campaign promises. The primary issue that may have turned many voters off from McAuliffe towards Youngkin was his recent strong stance against the indoctrination of children into believing anti-white critical race theory that was taking place in Virginia’s schools, and schools across the nation.
Youngkin stood with parents against McAuliffe, who during the campaign suggested that they should have no input into the education of the children. With Virginia voters, who named education as their number one priority, a 33 point lead in the opinion polls for McAuliffe in September transferred to a 9 point lead for Youngkin in the last days of the race.
This gives the Governor-elect a strong mandate to reform the education system, and crack down on school boards that leave children vulnerable to both psychological and physical harm from those who push for an anti-white or LGBT agenda.
When he begins his term as Governor, Youngkin further promised that economically-damaging coronavirus lockdowns would come to an end pm tje forst day, saying in a campaign stop on Monday that he would declare Virginia “open for business.”
This promise flies in the face of those such as Anthony Fauci and Joe Biden who have been pushing for the country to sacrifice everything for a virus with an almost 99% survival rate.

Despite a further push from Joe Biden and the federal administration to mandate a coronavirus vaccine, Youngkin has rejected the possibility of any sort of mandate to take place in Virginia. In a debate with his now-failed opponent, he slammed McAuliffe for being in favor of firing employees who did not want to take the coronavirus vaccine. This led to McAuliffe slandering him as an “anti-vaxxer,” a lie so astonishing that even leftist fact checkers were not able to claim it was true.
However, those who believe in the America First agenda popularized by President Trump should also be concerned about a number of views that Youngkin has professed during the campaign.
Most notably, Youngkin chose to ignore the mountains of evidence of irregularities that took place during the 2020 presidential election, claiming that Joe Biden was the legitimate winner, and that if he were Governor at the time, he would have “absolutely” voted to certify the election results of his state.
Youngkin has also taken seriously the leftist boogeyman of “white supremacy,” putting out a campaign advert in September that seemed to blame so-called white supremacists for rising crime rates in the state.
In fact, when working as the head of the Carlyle Group, a private investment firm, the group offered to match donations people made to the leftist, anti-white SPLC, an organization that labels conservatives as Christians as “hate groups.”
The Governor-elect also endorsed the destruction of Richmond’s Robert E Lee monument, with a spokesman telling National File in September he supports the removal of Confederate monuments throughout the state, although local communities, not the state government, should have the final say in the matter. It seems that conservatives and supporters of the America First agenda will have to hold his feet to the fire to ensure Tuesday’s victory will not be a hollow one.
