Lincoln Project Claims Responsibility For Virginia Tiki Torch Hate Hoax, Doesn’t Acknowledge Dems Allegedly Involved

The anti-Trump Lincoln Project has claimed responsibility for the Charlottesville-themed hate hoax enacted on the campaign trail in Virginia today that saw several activists dressed like alt right activists from Charlottesville pose in front of the Youngkin bus while reportedly shouting “We’re all in with Glenn!”

In a statement on its website, the anti-Trump group whose co-founder resigned after it was revealed he promised to help young men with their political careers in exchange for sexual favors, the Lincoln Project claimed full responsibility.

They enacted the hate hoax, per the statement, because Youngkin has said nice things about President Donald Trump, who in turn once declared there were “very fine people” in attendance at the Unite The Right protest held in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

President Trump was referring to protesters who did not want to see historic monuments destroyed in the name of progressive politics and behaved peacefully, however, and not those on the left and right who clashed violently that night.

“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,” wrote The Lincoln Project in its statement. “We will continue to hold Glenn Youngkin accountable. If he will denounce Trump’s assertion that the Charlottesville rioters possessed ‘very fine’ qualities, we’ll withdraw the tiki torches. Until then, we’ll be back.”

The Lincoln Project failed to explain why it hired individuals who have been identified by various parties as well known, partisan Democrat activists in its statement. As National File reported earlier today, Internet sleuths identified two of the individuals believed to have been at the protest. The Virginia Democrats claim they were not involved in the protest.
