A Bad Weekend for Race Hoaxsters and Hustlers
Oh, was this a bad weekend for race hustlers and hoaxsters!
From the pathetic and wicked hoax to try and paint GOP gubenatorial contender Glenn Youngkin as a racist, to Colin Kaepernick’s latest grab for attention, to CRT peddler Ibram X Kendri accidentally destroying his own arguments for CRT, race-baiters took it on the chin.
The “White Supremacist” Tiki Torch Hoax Backfires
The boy-chasing sleaze balls of the Lincoln Project teamed with members of Young Democrats of Virginia for a hoax on behalf of sleazy Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe. This multiracial (!) group of preppies pretending to be “white supremacists” showed up at an event for GOP candidate Glenn Youngkin carrying tiki torches, attempting to evoke the images of the Charlottesville Riot. Attempting to paint Youngkin as a “white supremacist.” (This as a man who literally wore blackface and/or a Klan hood sits in the governor’s mansion.)
These men approached @GlennYoungkin’s bus as it pulled up saying what sounded like, “We’re all in for Glenn.” Here they are standing in front of the bus as his campaign event at Guadalajara started.@NBC29 pic.twitter.com/l681ejyBjc

McAuliffe’s campaign and Democratic operatives spent hours pushing the tweets of this group before it was exposed as a hoax and the work of the Lincoln Project. The McAuliffe campaign denied any involvement. However, they also have pocketed over $250,000 from the Lincoln Project. Have they returned the money?

By the way, who was governor of Virginia when the Charlottesville riot took place? McAuliffe. Who had the authority to position state troopers and the National Guard to ward off trouble when Trump’s DHS was warning Virginia that ANTIFA and the white supremacist groups were both planning for a violent confrontation? Instead, a riot was permitted.
Who benefited from allowing that confrontation to take place? And the subsequent hoax about what Trump said in response to the riot? The Democrats lived off the Charlottesville Hoax for four years. Joe Biden repeatedly pushed the debunked hoax during the 2020 campaign.
What these people won’t do for power. Tuesday, the voters of Virginia can say “Enough!” Then again, perhaps it’s because polls show Virginia voters are saying “Enough!” that they had to resort to such a cheap and ugly stunt.
Colin Kaepernick Compares Playing in the NFL to Slavery
Colin Kaepernick decided to dress up for Halloween as “A Washed-Up Celebrity Desperate for Attention” … or maybe he was going as Maxine Waters. In either case, he should have won a prize for his outfit.
In a new Netflix show, the former 49ers quarterback and American flag-hater compared playing in the NFL to slavery. Specifically, Kaepernick equated the physical tests NFL hopefuls go through before the draft to the physical inspections before slave auctions.
In his Netflix special, Colin Kaepernick suggests the NFL training camp is synonymous with literally buying slaves.

As David Hookstead noted, Kaepernick himself has over 43 million reasons that analogy is bunk. But forget the money for a second. Isn’t it insulting to the players? Each of those young men makes the conscious decision for himself to make the sacrifices and commitment necessarily to become an elite athlete, to put himself in a position to be hired by an NFL team. Nobody made them hit the weights, hit the track, or suit up for three-a-days in the August heat every summer for years on end. And travel to an NFL combine. Flying coach to the combine isn’t exactly the Middle Passage.
These are young men with their own minds attempting to fulfil their individual dreams, as far as their own talent, physical gifts and sweat can take them. Perhaps that’s Kaepernick’s real beef. They embody the promise of America.
CRT Peddler Ibram X. Kendi Accidentally Refutes CRT!
Ibram X. Kendi, whose made a fortune and name pushing Critical Race Theory accidentally debunked CRT over the weekend. Oops!
Kendi retweeted with comment an article by The Hill, which reported on how white students are fudging their race on college applications to increase their chances of getting in. Kendi tweeted:
More than a third of White students lied about their race on college applications, and about half of these applicants lied about being Native American. More than three-fourths of these students who lied about their race were accepted.
The Daily Wire has a wonderful takedown of why this story completely undercuts Critical Race Theory:
Many social media users quickly realized that a true “systemically oppressive” nation would not go out of its way to expedite and bankroll the education of “oppressed” racial groups — to the extent that students in the “oppressor” category would falsely identify as purported victims of the system in order to reap its benefits.
Kendi deleted his tweet.
Then naturally, he responded to the wide-spread observance of how he undercut his own arguments by calling his critics racist and violent.
Jack couldn’t deny his lies so this is how he responded. And his “broke” reference has a long history within racist structures. White enslavers boasted of *breaking* Black people (when they did not *break* Black people). The resistance never stopped then and it won’t stop today. https://t.co/PjTEgk1djO
