After Virginia governor-elect Glenn Youngkin claimed his victory over Democrat Terry McAuliffe, several liberal media critics blamed “racist” Karens for it. Explaining why the Democrats lost, Wajahat Ali wrote, “As a student of American history and a person of color, I never underestimate the white, hot rage, anxiety, and resentment of a Karen scorned.” His piece, which appeared in The Daily Beast, was titled, 'You Damn Karens Are Killing America’

He added: “They vote for their interests, which is preserving whiteness at all costs. When push comes to shove, many white women in this country have historically shoved people of color out of the way.” Agreeing with Ali’s sentiment, MSNBC's Tiffany Cross said, “I can assure you, Black voters in Virginia are not shocked by the so-called Youngkin shocker. This isn’t about enthusiasm. This isn’t about Democrats not doing enough to exercise their base, and this definitely is not about messaging or even about Beloved.”

“This is about the fact that a good chunk of voters out there are OK with White supremacy. Let’s call a thing a thing. Actually, scratch that. They are more than OK,” Cross concluded.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid explained, “Republicans are dangerous to our national security, because stoking that kind of soft white nationalism eventually leads to the hard-core stuff. It leads to the January 6th stuff, because if people are tolerant of it in your party, they're tolerant of the soft racism, it's a really short trip to get to the January 6th insurrectionist play.”

According to reports, White women with little or no college education helped President Joe Biden in winning Virginia in the 2020 presidential election. But in 2021, the support shifted to Republicans as the group backed Youngkin by 74% and there was 25% support for McAuliffe, exit polls stated.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday, November 3, when PBS NewsHour correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked Biden, “What's your message... to Democratic voters, especially Black voters, who see Republicans running on race and education, lying about critical race theory?” He replied: “Well, I think that the whole answer is to just speak truth to that, lay out where we are.”

Twitter also has a lot to say about the election shocker in the Commonwealth of Virginia, especially after “racist” Karens were accused. A user tweeted, “whoa, men on the left get pretty misogynistic when things don't go their way.” The second user wrote, “Talked to my boss, a white woman in the Richmond burbs, today about the election. It all came down to education for her.” “It FLOORS me that you can research data so well and yet put it to writing so awful, trying to make hyperbolic talking points that are so rancid and repellent to a majority of people. Seriously, I am caught between being embarrassed and impressed here,” the third user added.



 



 



 

 

A tweet read, "Title and graphic just hits wrong. And I’m normally a defender of the value of honest critiques and discussion of white women as a political demographic." Another stated: "Men still telling women how to think and feel - I thought we were beyond that."
