Recently, The Lincoln Project sent a group posing as white supremacists with tiki torches to a GOP campaign event in Virginia ahead of the state’s gubernatorial election.
Reported by The New York Post
The co-founder of the Never-Trumper Lincoln Project has doubled down on the group’s much-decried decision to stage a political stunt involving fake “white supremacists” supposedly backing Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin.
When asked by CNN’s Chris Cuomo Friday if he wanted to apologize, Stuart Stevens said no.
In fact, he told Cuomo, this is why people have donated millions to the Lincoln Project – even though both liberals and conservatives have called him out for trying to smear Youngkin as racist.
“Listen,” said Stevens. “Every day I hear people pleading with the Lincoln Project to help show Democrats how to win, how to play hardball. You know, this is an example.”
The Lincoln Project organized a fake group of five people pretending to be white supremacists to stand outside Youngkin’s campaign bus Friday during an event in Charlottesville, site of the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in August 2017.
In one of the defining images of that rally, organizer Jason Kessler led a tiki torch-wielding mob on a march through the grounds of the University of Virginia in an attempt to echo Nazi torchlight parades.
President Trump later declared there were “very fine people on both sides” of the deadly rally.
Stevens called on Youngkin, who’s beating Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe in a recent Fox News polls, to denounce former President Trump.
‘The question here is not about some guys who showed up at a rally,’ said Stevens. ‘It’s why hasn’t Glenn Youngkin denounced Donald Trump for saying that there are good people on both sides? I mean, that is absolutely outrageous. And it’s because Glenn Youngkin wants it both ways. And I think that’s the message that needs to be driven here.’
But, who are they?
The Lincoln Project is an anti-Trump RINO group. The political action committee (PAC) formed in late 2019. Founded by George Conway, Steve Schmidt, John Weaver, Rick Wilson, Jennifer Horn, Ron Steslow, Reed Galen, and Mike Madrid. During the 2020 presidential election, it aimed to prevent the re-election of Donald Trump and defeat all Republicans in close races running for re-election in the United States Senate. In April 2020, the committee announced its endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
When you look into an anti Trump/ Republican group, why do you always find a Pedophile?
A co-founder of The Lincoln Project is being accused of sending unwanted messages to young men, pressuring them for sexual favors in exchange for jobs and career advice, according to a new report.
John Weaver, who worked for various national Republican candidates such as the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, has been accused by nearly two dozen men who said they received suggestive messages from Weaver, with one saying the messages began when he was 14 years old, The New York Times reported.
The Times reported that Weaver in one message told one of the young men he would “spoil you when we see each other.”
“Help you other times. Give advice, counsel, help with bills. You help me … sensually,” Weaver reportedly added.
The anti-Trump Lincoln Project PAC has raised $90 million since its creation in 2019.
While only $27 million of that amount went toward advertising costs — prompting questions about how much of the funds have gone to its members — the group saw financial success in its efforts to remove President Trump from office.

They even pissed off Antifa. I guess they hate competition.
Watch Alex Jones break it down as a DNC False flag.
The left does like to commit fake hate crimes in order to push an agenda to control us.
As I tweeted earlier today
HEY #Lincoln Project, guess who you just pissed off? Faking a hate crime is the same as doing an actual hate crime. Your asses are about to be dragged. Lincoln Project = Antifa.
