‘Parental Crap’: Virginia Dems Keep Stepping in It as Hot Mic Moments Capture Them Demonizing Parents
by Rebecca Downs, Townhall:
Virginia Democrats lost monumentally in November 2021, when now Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) ran on and was elected on education and protecting parental rights. While the governor looks to make good on his promises, state Democrats keep getting in the way.

As Fox News reported on Wednesday, state Sen. Monty Mason and state Del. Shelly Simonds, both Democrats, can be heard on recordings shared by the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) criticizing Republicans over S.B. 1515, which requires pornography websites to verify a user’s age to be at least 18 before content can be accessed. Mason also mocked an amendment from the governor–which failed–that would have required children to get parents’ permission to set up social media accounts and use websites that collect user data.
Speaking about bills that were “of consequences,” Monty pointed out that Youngkin “slapped that online parental garbage pornography bill.” He also mocked extra steps to require verification for making online purchases as “stupid.”

The recordings come from a meet-and-greet event held at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia.
In another recording, Monty also mocks the governor for lamenting that “the Senate Democrats are playing politics with children’s lives.” While Republicans also took back control of the House of Delegates when Youngkin was elected, the state Senate is still under Democratic control and is considered a major target for the 2023 election.
“It’s just all a part of this parental crap that they’re selling,” Monty said, as Del. Simonds chimed in to remind the senator “you guys killed it, right,” as he proudly boasts “oh yeah, we killed it again!”
With an audible sigh, Simonds reminded “this is why we have to keep the Senate,” as Monty can be heard chuckling. “It’s because the House is in the hands of the Republicans, and they can push through all kinds of stupid things, and we rely on the Senate to kill it all.”
