The disgraced anti-trump political committee “The lincoln Project” faces severe backlash for smearing Youngkin’s campaign after orchestrating a viral Hoax and making individuals holding tiki torches associate themselves with Youngkin.
Twitter caught fire after a series of pictures of men wearing baseball caps, khakis, white shirts, and sunglasses standing beside the gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin’s campaign bus, demonstrating support and loyalty for the Republican – reported Elizabeth Holmes, from NBC affiliate media.
Allegedly, the pictures were meant to invoke the white supremacists involved in Charlottesville’s deadly event in 2017.
The bold stunt was exploited by the left, including staffers from Terry McAuliffe’s campaign.
Christina Freundlich, McAuliffe’s representative, tweeted, “The Unite the Right rally was one of the darkest days in the Commonwealth’s history. this is who Glenn Youngkin’s supporters are.”
After the Twitter critics suspicion that the opponents of Youngkin orchestrated the act, the anti-Trump committee owned what they called “demonstration.”
In a press release, the group said, “The Lincoln Project has run advertisements highlighting the hate unleashed in Charlottesville as well as Glenn Youngkin’s continued failure to denounce Donald Trump’s ‘very fine people on both sides.’ We will continue to draw this contrast in broadcast videos, on our social media platforms, and at Youngkin rallies,”
“Today’s demonstration was our way of reminding Virginians what happened in Charlottesville four years ago, the Republican Party’s embrace of those values, and Glenn Youngkin’s failure to condemn it.”
Stever Krakauer, the Fourth Watch critics, wrote, “Anyone who continues to associate themselves with The Lincoln Project owns this. This is who you are,”
“I do not think it’s out of the realm of possibility that Lincoln Project is taking the blame because they have no shame and their reputation really can’t get any worse,” wrote Brent Scher, the executive editor of Washington Free
Glenn Greenwald, the Substack journalist, said, “Needless to say, right-wing groups that perpetrated a fraud like this — causing media figures and campaign operatives to spend all day swamping Twitter with an outright racist lie — would be instantly banned from social media,”
