Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears, a Republican elected during the Virginia anti-wokeness red wave of 2021, stands firm in her beliefs despite backlash.

She emphasized the importance of holding onto God’s law and not conforming to wokeness.

“In order for [Democrats] to continue to win, they need to get 80 to 90 percent of the black vote. That’s why they are so full of hatred when conservatives like me, or libertarians, don’t think the way they do,” Sears said, adding, “We don’t really care.”

“I think what we have to be careful about as Christians is that no one is on the throne except Christ,” she said. “We know that God can use anyone. He even used a donkey to speak to Balaam [an Old Testament story] to tell him he was going down the wrong path. So, if He can use a [expletive], He can use anybody.”

A recent incident with state Sen. Danica Roem led to controversy, with Sears refusing to apologize initially.

“How many votes will it take to be able to pass this bill with the emergency clause?” transgender Sen. Danica Roem asked.

“That would be four-fifths, senator,” Sears said.

“And what would be the exact number for that, madam president?” Roem said.

“Yes, sir, that would be 32,” Sears said.

“Roem appeared to be distraught on the state Senate livestream after the incident happened,” reporter Bill Atkinson said.

While Democrats demanded an apology, Sears maintained her stance. Criticism and support followed, highlighting the clash of ideologies.

Sears remains unapologetic for her views on gender and identity, rooted in her faith and principles.

“I understand Senator Roem is upset,” Sears later said.

“I am not here to upset anyone. I am here to do the job that the people of Virginia have called me to do, and that is to treat everyone with respect and dignity. I myself have at times not been afforded that same respect and dignity,” she said.

“And so, I apologize, I apologize, I apologize. And I would hope that everyone would understand there is no intent to offend.”

“Apology or no apology, we will not forget this smear, @WinsomeSears,” Virginia Democrats wrote online. “Show some respect for the position you have and don’t insult one of VA’s finest public servants from that dais. Again, we will not forget.”

“To honor black history month, Virginia’s first black female Lt. Governor gets attacked by unhinged liberals for calling a spade a spade. You don’t matter to the Democrat Party unless you walk, think, & talk like them,” Prince William County supervisor and Youngkin campaign staffer Yesli Vega said.
