Direct Line News – Week of 01-18-2023

Tonight on Direct Line – David Shephard is a native (and very proud) Virginian.  Raised in Fairfax County, David graduated from George Mason University and majored in Government and Politics.  He spent decades in politics, campaign consulting, raising money and lobbying.  He is also a longtime conservative blogger writing for numerous blogs, including his own, \”The Virginia Gentleman\”, blog.

Many who are politically conservative sincerely believe the political left intentionally stokes racism. They do so by constantly pounding the table about “White Supremacy,” which nowadays is virtually non-existent, and by promoting Critical Race Theory in schools so that non-whites will grow up believing that they are helpless victims. The Left does so, they believe, in order to keep minorities perpetually in a separate, under class, and struggling for survival. The logic is simple. Stunting the growth and development of non-whites will keep them voting for Democrats. In 2021, however, Virginians by and large saw through this ruse. For lieutenant governor, they elected a black female Republican, Winsome Earle-Sears. For governor, they elected a while male Republican, Glenn Youngkin. To the office of Attorney General, they elected a Hispanic Republican, Jason Miyares. Never before had a political party in Virginia offered up such an ethnically diverse ticket, nor had the citizens ever elected one.

Don’t miss this political thriller, and whatever you do, think about it the next time you cast a ballot.
