Gutfeld asks if Dems will learn anything from ‘scum bucket’ Lincoln Project’s racial hoax

Greg Gutfeld does not suffer fools lightly. On Monday, Gutfeld laid into the “unstable scum buckets” at the Lincoln Project during a segment on Fox News’ “The Five” ahead of Tuesday’s gubernatorial election between Terry McAuliffe (D) and Glenn Youngkin (R) in the state of Virginia.

“We cannot forget that one of the biggest stories in Virginia was the unstable scum buckets of the Lincoln Project who tried to exploit racial conflict by creating a hoax,” Gutfeld said. “And that is to… the fact that race has become the prism that the media and Democrats often decide to see everything through.”

On Friday, the rabidly anti-conservative clan of political reprobates admitted to perpetrating the hoax in which they impersonated supporters of Youngkin while brandishing tiki torches in a juvenile effort to call to mind the violence of Charlottesville, VA in 2017.

“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,” the group stated in a press release.

“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,” they wrote.

Gutfeld articulated and criticized the advancement of the philosophy that all things must be viewed through the lens of skin color – a mentality that has been embraced by the Left and allowed to fester to toxic levels.

“There are columnists and people in the media who claim that when people say you’re a concerned parent, they really mean concerned white parent,” Gutfeld said, “so now parenting is being seen through this racial prism by people like McAuliffe who sends their kids to private school, because if you went by their logic, then if you send your kids to private schools, you are a concerned parent ergo white parent.”

“This hoax thing might be that turning point where the Democrats have to consider letting go of this racial prism,” he said. “It’s time to change the tools and start operating on a different manner than they are now.”

Hoaxes that are centered around phantom racism are not a new tactic for the Left. In fact, it becomes increasingly evident that such childish attempts are their preferred line of attack, given how outmatched they are as a whole when it comes to the intellectual debate of ideas.

One of the more infamous cases is that of Jussie Smollett, the B-list actor who feigned an attack from two MAGA hat-wearing black men in the early A.M. hours of a frozen Chicago morning, having inexplicably come from a Subway sandwich shop. For an extra touch of style, he claimed the men told him, “This is MAGA country” as they attacked him. (Chicago, sure.) They proceeded to drape a noose around his neck which he did not remove until he arrived at a police precinct. The attackers were apparently not interested in the sandwich; they left that intact, unlike Smollett’s dignity which he sabotaged himself.

Smollett is due to stand trial in November. The Virginia race for governor is to be decided Tuesday, November 2.
