White supremacist tiki torch protest at Youngkin rally was staged by radical leftist group

It’s no secret in this day and age that when Democratic candidates face an uphill battle against a Republican opponent, they’re all too quick to play the race card. That was recently evidenced at a rally for Glenn Youngkin, Virginia’s GOP gubernatorial candidate, who is running a neck-and-neck race with Democratic favorite, Terry McAuliffe.

According to the Daily Caller, at a recent rally for Youngkin in Charlottesville, a group of white men dressed in white while holding tiki torches stood in front of Youngkin’s tour bus, causing immediate controversy as the media portrayed it as a racial protest. However, as these scenarios usually turn out, it was all orchestrated by Democratic operatives.

The radical leftists who make up the ranks of The Lincoln Project admitted in a statement that they staged the racial protest hoax, saying in a statement that it wanted to remind voters of what took place at a ‘Unite the Right’ rally in 2017 which included white supremacists donning white polos and tiki torches.

“Today’s demonstration was our way of reminding Virginians what happened in Charlottesville four years ago, the Republican Party’s embrace of those values, and Glenn Youngkin’s failure to condemn it,” The Lincoln Project said in a statement.

The group apparently didn’t intend to reveal that they were behind the staged racial hoax protest, but thanks to Vice, of all left-leaning outlets, someone recognized one of the participants holding a tiki torch as a member of the far-left group.

Youngkin’s campaign, prior to the staged incident being exposed as a fake, strongly condemned the situation, and assured the media that it had nothing to do with it, which proved to be a true statement. They even went as far as accusing McAuliffe, who’s certainly no stranger to playing the race card, of being involved.

“I think they work for Terry McAuliffe, and I’m sure he sent them,” Youngkin told a local media outlet at the time.

As the two candidates are set to face off on Tuesday, the entire country will be watching, as the race has been widely promoted as a bellwether look at what the country can expect in the upcoming 2022 elections.
