Virginia GOP Governor Candidate Asked for Southern Poverty Law Center Donations While Running Bush-Linked Equity Firm
On Monday, the Virginia Republican Party nominated Glenn Youngkin as their gubernatorial candidate to take on a Democrat contender.
Youngkin is painting himself as a conservative outsider to Virginia voters:
However, Youngkin had previously worked as a co-CEO for the Carlyle Group, a private equity firm with deep ties to the Bush family. This Wall Street colossus has facilitated the outsourcing of jobs as part of the globalization process crippling the American economy and way of life.
As Black Lives Matter terrorists were razing cities and performing ISIS-style desecrations of cultural artifacts last year, Youngkin was encouraging the Carlyle Group to donate to social justice causes.
Youngkin along with fellow co-CEO Kewsong Lee announced after the death of drug-addicted serial felon George Floyd that they would match donations for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI), and the NAACP Legal Fund.
"In keeping with our deep commitment to our core values, we will continue to invest even more resources towards Diversity and Inclusion, not only at our firm, but in support of certain organizations focused on driving change in our world," Youngkin and Lee announced in May 2020.
"As part of our efforts, the firm and individuals of Carlyle have already donated over $10 mm towards causes in light of the pandemic. Today, we are announcing a special match to support organizations that are working on social justice and reform of the U.S. criminal justice system. Carlyle will match donations up to $1,000 to the organizations listed below and it will not count towards your annual matching gifts limit of $2,000," they added.
Big League Politics has reported on the SPLC’s record of left-wing agitation against the Bill of Rights and Constitution, targeting conservative groups for exercising their 1st Amendment rights:
"The Southern Poverty Law Center has officially designated the Proud Boys as a hate group. The Proud Boys are a multi-racial pro-West fraternal organization, whose only two requirements for entry are to be biologically male, and to believe that the “West is the best.”
The Proud Boys was founded by conservative commentator Gavin McInnes in 2016, and was originally set up as a drinking club made up of New York area fans of his now discontinued show on Compound Media. The group has kept its drinking club roots, but has grown to have thousands of members across the world. The Proud Boys hosted their first national meetup in September of 2016, which brought well over 100 Proud Boys to Las Vegas...
“Most sane people on the right are aware of the Morris Dees hustle. They are facing legal action for putting innocent people in danger and the FBI no longer uses them as a resource,” stated McInnes. “Most of us recognize Dees as a con artist who preys on old Jewish people with money. They’re petrified of Nazis coming back and I believe he takes advantage of this fear by pretending they lurk around every corner. It’s immoral and wrong and totally corrupt. The SPLC’s cofounder Millard Fuller, has been quite vocal about this and sold his shares when the guilt got to be too much. Fuller gave away his money and started Habitat for Humanity as a kind of penance.”"
Youngkin appears to be another wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing RINO wasting the time of conservatives; a globalist swamper who lacks the courage to stand up to the Radical Left.
