Liberals are celebrating their victories in Virginia today, acting as if it’s a sign of things to come. They’re trying desperately to make the public believe the results are a direct repudiation of Trump, but the reality is that most of their victories were long-expected.
Thanks to the density of people and proximity to the DC swamp, Northern Virginia’s voting patterns decide the entire state’s fate. And the 50+ mile area is incredibly liberal and growing in numbers, which is why these results aren’t surprising. As the votes were coming in and result all but decided, President Trump, all the way from Asia, decided to way in on the election.
As reported at the Daily Caller, once it becomes clear Democrat Ralph Northam would win the race to be Virginia’s next governor Trump tweeted, “Ed Gillespie worked hard but did not embrace me or what I stand for. Don’t forget, Republicans won 4 out of 4 House seats, and with the economy doing record numbers, we will continue to win, even bigger than before!”
Ed Gillespie was the Republican challenger for Virginia governor, and while he wasn’t completely on the Trump train, he did support some of the president’s ideas. For example, he attacked MS-13 and sanctuary cities, and he bashed Northam for declaring he wanted to tear down Confederate statues.
Of course, the left-wing media accused him of racism and “white nationalism” for supporting these common sense positions, running countless ads and spewing out Soviet level propaganda in Northam’s favor the entire election.
The Democratic victory has the national media overjoyed, as it’s an ample opportunity to spread even more anti-Trump propaganda. They’re using the Left’s wins as evidence that Trumpism is already on its way out, hoping that they’ll simultaneously fire up the liberal base and demoralize conservatives ahead of the 2018 midterms.
A victory on Virginia is hardly surprising, as the last governor was also a leftist clown. It’s unfortunate that the once swing state is becoming more solidly blue, but if that’s what the people want then so be it.
