Glenn Youngkin is already being rebuked by right-wingers for inadequate loyalty to MAGA insanity


The Daily Beast reports that many MAGA conservatives who helped put Youngkin in workplace are already experiencing “purchaser’s regret.”

Over the previous week, outrage has bubbled over amongst right-wingers and TrumpWorld allies alike, who’re beneath the impression Youngkin has inadequate MAGA loyalty, citing his hiring of an LGBTQ staffer and his refusal to dam COVID-related native mandates.

Oh, do inform.

The hits began pouring in towards the fleece-clad governor-elect earlier this week after he declared he would not attempt to block native vaccine and masks mandates throughout the Previous Dominion—a break from extra hardcore Republican governors like Florida’s Ron DeSantis.

The dying cult calls for a sacrifice, Glenn. Did you actually assume you possibly can govern as a Republican within the 12 months of Our Lord 2021 with out genuflecting to faux phlegmy freedom?

Proper-wing media figures nearly instantly started publicly bashing the governor-elect. Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton railed against Youngkin for refusing to face up towards “abusive” masks mandates, whereas right-wing outlet The Federalist tossed him under the bus for not being a “robust conservative governor.”

Ouch. Youngkin hasn’t even moved into the Govt Mansion but and he’s being deemed a failure.

One other of the MAGA crowd’s main lights has already accused Youngkin of being a dreaded RINO—a “Republican in Title Solely.” In fact, nowadays that would imply anybody who thinks a young person who bumblefucks his method right into a protest with an assault rifle and kills two individuals one way or the other isn’t evocative of a traditional Greek hero.

John Fredericks, who hosts a radio present on Actual America’s Voice (which additionally airs Steve Bannon’s Struggle Room), lately said, “Two weeks, submit his election, right here we go: As soon as once more with one other RINO alert.” It appears to me that somebody who defers to native management vis-à-vis public well being dictates would truly be a true Republican, however these of us stopped making an attempt to make sense years in the past.

But it surely isn’t simply inadequate fealty to the novel coronavirus that’s obtained Republicans in a lather. It’s additionally the truth that Youngkin employed a staffer “with pronouns” who (gasp!) seems to establish with LGBTQ causes. Simply take a look at this late-night Twitter thread obsessing over the staffer, Joshua Marin-Mora, from Claremont Institute fellow Pedro Gonzalez:


Gonzalez’s insomniac vitriol sparked additional scrutiny of Marin-Mora.

As surprising/not surprising as Youngkin’s victory was, it could be robust for him to carry his fragile voting base collectively. And if right-wingers are this suspicious of him earlier than he even takes workplace, perhaps Youngkin’s double-sided shtick isn’t the magic method for Republicans to sway purple state voters sooner or later. In spite of everything, if Republican candidates can’t be trusted to be little Despicable Him minions, what good are they?
