The video here comes from The Recount, which has proved to be reliably biased toward progressive causes. Virginia Democrats are using the footage of student walkouts to prove that Gov. Glenn Youngkin “messed with the wrong generation.” ABC News notes that “student activists held school walkouts across Virginia on Tuesday to protest Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s proposed changes to the state’s guidance on transgender student policies, revisions that would roll back some accommodations.”
“We decided to hold these walkouts as kind of a way to … disrupt schools and essentially have students be aware of what’s going on,” Natasha Sanghvi, a northern Virginia high school senior and member of the Pride Liberation Project who helped organize the resistance effort, told The Associated Press.
Sanghvi said the existing, more permissive state policies, which were adopted under former Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam’s administration, had been powerful in helping students feel affirmed in their identities at school. The new ones made public earlier this month, she said, have the potential to harm “every single queer student in the state of Virginia.”
Youngkin did choose the right generation to mess with, because they’re too young to vote, they’re short-sighted, and like sheep, will walk out of school for any reason.
Governor Youngkin messed with the wrong generation.

This means absolutely nothing. High school kids and teenagers in general are stupid and will follow any squawking sheep. https://t.co/SD25yAh5q4

Kids are idiots and I think it’s funny that we’re supposed to care what these brats think. https://t.co/cx5OXmjKSD

Did we learn nothing from the walking joke that is David Hogg?

I would wager a bet that the majority of those kids “walking out” are simply doing so to get out of school.

Gosh, there must be 200 total. Wow.

It was teachers that organized everything.

Kids skipped school. Big if true.
Just kidding. You’re morons.

Everyone knows that the hardest thing to do is to convince schoolchildren not to go to class.
But it is remarkable coordination so congratulations on that.

These aren’t spontaneous walk outs. They’re organized. Those teachers unions had better step up. Only 4 schools? Weak.

“Why are we marching?”
“No idea but keep walking”

You can get kids to walk out of class for a TikTok video.
But, sure, this means something.

“Look at all these kids who follow our orders if they can get out of class! Don’t you want them voting?”

“We want our teachers to help us keep secrets from our parents.”
Shut up and get back to your classrooms so your teachers can explain to you how people can have 38 different sexes.

God forbid they miss science class, where they’re learning that the doctor makes a guess at a baby’s sex when it’s born and sometimes gets it wrong.

@vademocrats @GovernorVA Looks like the brainwashing about climate change has been effective. Also showing results from the indoctrination about gender and sexual identity. Decades of taking over educational institutions has begun to pay dividends.

We’re sure these students were facing terrible repercussions if they walked out while the teacher was leading gender studies class. So brave.
HACK AF! Aaron Rupar’s attempt to make Gov. Youngkin look stupid by taking him OUT of context does NOT go wellhttps://t.co/JIftE5Ok8z
