The far-left reporters at The Washington Post are worried about Governor Glenn Youngkin (R-VA), smearing him as a pyromaniac “lighting a match” when it comes to Critical Race Theory. The Post, which has NEVER endorsed a Virginia Republican for governor, lectured Youngkin on Monday, repeatedly deeming him” polarizing” for actually governing as a conservative.
The Post even stealth edited the story by writers Gregory S. Schneider and Laura Vozzella. Here’s the print version that appeared on the front page on Monday: “The new governor has also stoked racial tensions with his focus on banning critical race theory, an intellectual framework for examining the way policies and laws perpetuate systemic racism.”
Here’s the online version, which went up two days earlier on Saturday: “The new governor has also lighted a match under racial tensions with his focus on banning critical race theory, an intellectual framework for examining the way policies and laws perpetuate systemic racism.”
So, online Youngkin is “lighting a match.” In print, he’s “stoking racial tensions.” Whichever version you read, The Post wants to make it clear: It’s Youngkin who is the problem. The print subhead: “VA. Governor moves fast on polarizing issues and attracts a national spotlight.”
