Liberals know why Democrats lost the Virginia governor’s race – the racist Karens

An overwhelming majority of white women voters with no college degree helped propel Virginia governor-elect Glenn Youngkin to victory over Democrat Terry McAuliffe, and some in the liberal media claim that they know why.

They’re racists.   

‘As a student of American history and a person of color, I never underestimate the white, hot rage, anxiety, and resentment of a Karen scorned,’ wrote Wajahat Ali for The Daily Beast in a piece titled, ‘You Damn Karens Are Killing America.’ 

‘When push comes to shove, many white women in this country have historically shoved people of color out of the way,’ Ali claimed. 

‘I can assure you,’ declared MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross on Wednesday.  ‘Black voters in Virginia are not shocked by the so-called Youngkin shocker.’

‘This is about the fact that a good chunk of voters out there are OK with White supremacy. Let’s call a thing a thing.’

‘Actually, scratch that. They are more than OK,’ Cross concluded.

MSNBC host Joy Reid also saw bigotry bubbling below the surface of Youngkin’s appeal.

‘[Republicans are] dangerous to our national security, because stoking that kind of soft white nationalism eventually leads to the hard-core stuff,’ she said on election night, claiming that the GOP is conditioning voters to accept, ‘soft racism.’

And like clockwork far-left pundits smeared many of the same Americans, who previously helped put Democrats in the White House.

White women with little or no college education were an important part of Biden’s coalition in Virginia in the 2020 presidential election.

44% of these voters supported Biden, nearly matching the percentage of white men with college degrees, who went for the now-president. But in 2021, the group swung 37 percentage-points towards the GOP.

They backed Youngkin by 74% to 25% for McAuliffe, according to exit polls.

Despite all this, some in the media still see race as the driving factor behind the election shocker in the Commonwealth of Virginia. 

‘What’s your message… to Democratic voters, especially Black voters, who see Republicans running on race and education, lying about critical race theory?’ asked PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor during Wednesday’s White House news conference.

‘Well, I think that the whole answer is to just speak truth to that, lay out where we are,’ Biden responded.

In the run-up to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat to Trump, she infamously took a slightly different tack and preemptively dismissed half of her opponent’s supporters.

‘You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,’ she said at New York City fundraiser in September of 2016.

‘The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that.’ 

Several months later, Trump arguably won the election by winning over Rust Belt and Midwest voters, who had previously supported President Barack Obama.

Again, critics had a ready explanation for the shift in voting behavior. 

They’re racist. 

‘Why Did Some White Obama Voters Go for Trump?: Trump gave them a choice between multiracial democracy and white primacy,’ a Slate columnist explained. 

Vox doubled-down on that conclusion years later, advancing a study that also blamed racism for Trump’s election.

‘There is tremendous evidence that Trump voters were motivated by racial resentment (as well as hostile sexism), and very little evidence that economic stress had anything to do with it,’ the writer emphasized.
