The writers at the Washington Post, like so many liberals, are still hung up on Glenn Youngkin’s defeat of Terry McAuliffe last fall. Exit polls said that economics issues were on the top of most people’s minds, but the Left caught a glimpse of parents becoming activists in their children’s education: parents didn’t want critical race theory influencing the way their children were treated, and yes, they had some concerns about the schools’ policies on transgenderism (translated by WaPo into “attacks on transgender people”).
Jeff Stein of the Washington Post has shared an article about changes to the leadership of the conservative Heritage Foundation, claiming that Heritage is realigning its mission to reflect the “red meat” of the Republican Party: “critical race theory” (in scare quotes for some reason), attacks on transgender people, and schools.
Heritage changes its leadership as the GOP policy machinery increasingly orients around the new "red meat" of the party — "critical race theory;" attacks on transgender ppl; schools — over the fiscal/spending issues that once defined the think-tankhttps://t.co/S8mIa35iRX

Being corporate stooges is not a path with much of a future in the GOP in 2022. https://t.co/zzfx9yjfCw

To be clear, being anti-CRT and anti-race essentialism, which ties in neatly with being against race-preferences and Affirmative Action, is most definitely a form of minority outreach.
Being big business-skeptical is a form of minority outreach. https://t.co/t2PyuXurHZ

We’re still wondering why Stein put “critical race theory” in quotation marks; is that to indicate that it’s not a real thing?
