These men approached @GlennYoungkin’s bus as it pulled up saying what sounded like, “We’re all in for Glenn.” Here they are standing in front of the bus as his campaign event at Guadalajara started.@NBC29 pic.twitter.com/l681ejyBjc

The small group of false flag operatives was comprised of three White men, a White woman and a Black man, dressed in matching white dress shirts, tan khaki trousers, ball caps and sunglasses with each carrying Tiki torches pretending to be Youngkin supporters reenacting the infamous 2017 White nationalist Tiki torch Unite the Right march in Charlottesville.
The McAuliffe campaign and the Virginia Democratic Party each issued statements denying involvement in the false flag stunt.
The Lincoln Project statement threatens more Tiki torch protests and repeated the “fine people on both sides” lie about President Trump as a reason for the false flag stunt. The group did not offer proof of involvement, leaving open the question of whether Democrat operatives were involved.
October 29, 2021 — Today, The Lincoln Project released the following statement:
“Glenn Younkin has said: ‘President Trump represents so much of why I am running.’ Youngkin proves it every day by trying to divide Virginians using racial code words like Critical Race Theory and supporting a ban on teaching the works of America’s only Black Nobel laureate.
“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.
Liberal activist Lauren Windsor claims co-credit:
In my capacity as a communications consultant, I worked w @ProjectLincoln to coordinate today's Youngkin action in Charlottesville. I join them in the fight to defend our democracy from rightwing extremists and call for Glenn Youngkin to denounce Trump’s ‘very fine people.

Here’s Katie Pavlich calling on the party to ask the FBI to “help track down the white supremacists”:
Well since your campaign claims to be against white supremacy, with the exception of KKK Ralph, I’m sure you’ll be calling the FBI to help track down who these white supremacists are. They are very dangerous. Thank you for your help @AndrewWhitleyVA. https://t.co/E15TJ9TpxA

ok. But will you help us identify these people so they can be prosecuted for a possible hate crime? https://t.co/aHsHd3NoZL
