Republican lawyer outed after his mom says a school book scared him so much Virginia should vote GOP to ban books
Facebook.

Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin is out with a new ad by a mom talking about how her child was terrified by a book he was forced to read while in school. She goes on to talk about why having a governor like Youngkin means better regulations on schools so far-right parents can decide what everyone's child should read and learn.

What is becoming known now, however, is that the mom's son was actually a senior in high school when he was "scared" by the book he read. He was 17-years-old and legally able to see rated-R movies in a theater. The child is a lawyer in the Republican Party today, and it is being reported in multiple outlets that he was so terrified by a book at 17 that it's being used in political ads years later. Even at 19, he was confessing to having "night terrors" after reading the book.

Night terrors are defined by the Mayo Clinic, "episodes of screaming, intense fear and flailing while still asleep." The analysis goes on to say, "sleep terrors differ from nightmares. The dreamer of a nightmare wakes up from the dream and may remember details, but a person who has a sleep terror episode remains asleep. Children usually don't remember anything about their sleep terrors in the morning. Adults may recall a dream fragment they had during the sleep terrors."

Youngkin is going all-in on his campaign of literary censorship, despite a Fox News campaign attacking Democrats for attempting to censor Dr. Seuss because the author's foundation stopped printing certain books of his.

Issues like "critical race theory" and censorship of African American history and literature could motivate white supremacists and those on the far-right in next week's election. However, it is unclear if it could make or break the Virginia governor's race, where voters say they're most concerned about the economy and COVID.

A Fox News poll tried to claim that a "plurality" of Virginia voters were against teaching "CRT," yet when asked what the top issues people are voting on in the 2021 election it only ranked at 7 percent. Only 39 percent (plus or minus 3 percent) oppose CRT. More people say they support teaching it (27 percent) or don't know enough about it (32 percent). The same poll shows Youngkin's polling at just 44 percent and Donald Trump's at 41 percent. A conservative, anti-CRT group is already launching a $1 million expenditure attacking the education policy. Few other groups are polling the issue and none in the past month.

Democratic challenger Terry McAuliffe said that the issue is nothing more than "another right-wing conspiracy" being used to sow hatred and division.

The Republican lawyer, Blake Murphy, who was scared of the Black author Toni Morrison, is now 27-years-old and working for the National Republican Congressional Committee. He was ridiculed online for his fears caused by the book Beloved, which is based on a true story, depicts a family of former slaves after the Civil War who thinks their home is haunted by their daughter who died eight years prior.
