The old playbook is in full force with Glenn Youngkin giving Terry McAuliffe such a scare in the Virginia gubernatorial race. The latter should be trouncing the former, but that’s not happening, with a poll released today showing the two candidates tied going into the final two weeks.
Last night, McAuliffe’s supporters came up with the brilliant electoral strategy of promoting a giant inflatable chicken with Donald Trump hair. But just in case you were wondering if these people truly have nothing of substance to run on, Youngkin is now being accused of possibly hating Jews.
You might be asking why? The answer is because he dared to tell the truth about George Soros’ left-wing funding network propping up far-left radicals at the local level.
Critics might question whether this is antisemitic. Glenn Youngkin says “George Soros-backed allies” from the “left, liberal, progressive movement” have inserted operatives onto school boards. @wusa9 pic.twitter.com/vuQ0oOOoaa

This isn’t difficult. If you are attacking someone simply because they are Jewish, that is anti-Semitic. But it is not anti-Semitic to go after a politically active bundler of radical, left-wing politicians just because that person also happens to be Jewish by heritage. No one on the right is criticizing Soros because he’s Jewish.
Rather, they criticize him because he’s a really bad guy who has funded horrible candidates that have caused serious damage to the lives of Americans. Go ask Chicago how Kim Foxx is working out for them or how Loudoun County likes their new prosecutor, both backed by big bucks from Soros’ many political organizations.
But again, this just shows how desperate the McAuliffe backers in Virginia are getting. The possibility of the mediocre Democrat losing this race is starting to feel all too real for them. Three months ago, no one in McAuliffe’s camp, officially or unofficially, thought he had a chance of losing. Now, they are going with the kitchen sink strategy, flailing about and hoping something sticks.
Regardless, Youngkin is not anti-Semitic and Soros is absolutely fair game for political attacks. To suggest otherwise is lunacy, and the Republican candidate shouldn’t even respond to this stupidity.
