Political scholar and Atlantic contributor Norman Ornstein has been watching this Glenn Youngkin fella for a while, and he doesn’t like what he sees. The Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate that currently has Terry McAuliffe’s campaign at DEFCON 5 has been pretty vocal in his opposition to government policing of parents who care about what’s happening to their kids at school, and in Ornstein’s mind, that makes Youngkin “wholly unfit for public office”:
Glenn Youngkin's signature commercial, on schools and parents, attacks the FBI for going after Virginia parents. In other words, Glenn Youngkin supports threats of violence against school board members. He is wholly unfit for public office.

Should … should the FBI (and DOJ) not be condemned for going after Virginia parents? Was that wrong? Should Glenn Youngkin not have done that?
Impeccable and scholarly reasoning https://t.co/4slwKFfsRU

Good to see your reasoning ability is still as sharp as it’s ever been.

That’s sarcasm, in case you couldn’t tell.
Oh, you mean the people that covered up not one, but two rapes and lied to the DoJ to demonize the people calling for justice?
Weird take, for normal people. Totally on brand for trash like you tho.

You dink. The letter that prompted the FBI’s letter has been withdrawn. And Garland admitted there was no other source for his letter. https://t.co/4LHEbRHl4P

Like Merrick Garland, Norman Ornstein doesn’t have an intellectual leg to stand on.
Siding with school board members who we now know covered up a student rape is a bold strategy… https://t.co/UhgOKIBRBg

So you think it's ok that Democrats passed a bill in VA that allowed Loudoun County schools to hide not one but TWO rapes of freshman girls in their high-school bathrooms by the same boy in a skirt.
You might really want to rethink this tweet, Norman. https://t.co/dN8yZnAfFE

Maybe rethink his entire career while he’s at it.
Actually, if your daughter is raped in a school bathroom, threats against anyone involved should be the standard parental reaction. https://t.co/Qai3JpD4dy

Turns out the parent targeted is the father of a girl who was sexually assaulted and the school tried to cover it up.
What would you do if it was your daughter?
Bad look, Norm. Your Trump derangement is clouding your judgment. https://t.co/1I1HvtEXCd

"Criticize law enforcement tactics and you're actually pro-crime" is maybe not the best long-run position for progressives to stake out https://t.co/HnoMGVEPOI

Well, to be fair, they’re not known for the best long-term strategies. Unless, of course, their long-term strategy is to step on every rake they can find.
