Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who is running for governor again, is continuing to deny that Critical Race Theory (CRT) is being taught in schools and has repeatedly dismissed the concept, describing it as a “dog whistle” and “right-wing conspiracy.”
McAuliffe said Tuesday during an appearance on MSNBC that his opponent, Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin, “talks about Critical Race Theory. He talks about having these parents meetings on Critical Race Theory. It really bothers because it is a racist dog whistle. We don’t teach Critical Race Theory here in Virginia.”
