Why do Democrats have an obsession with wearing blackface? It wasn’t funny in the 1980s and it isn’t funny now. When is demeaning one’s fellow Americans, based upon something they cannot control, EVER funny?
VIRGINIA’S LINE OF SUCCESSION IS PITIFUL
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, the second in line to assume the governorship of the state, admitted today that he dressed in blackface when he was a 19-year-old college student. No doubt, Herring wanted to get out in front of this story in case Governor Ralph Northam and Lt Governor Justin Fairfax both decide to step down. Herring declared:
“I have a glaring example from my past that I have thought about with deep regret in the many years since, and certainly each time I took a step forward in public service, realizing that my goals and this memory could someday collide and cause pain for people I care about.”
“In 1980, when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college, some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers we listened to at the time, like Kurtis Blow, and perform a song. “It sounds ridiculous even now writing it.”
Herring has not ruled out the possibility that he could resign due to his wearing blackface as a young man.
WHY ARE DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS SUCH HYPOCRITES?
Knowing full well that he had done the same thing, last Friday, AG Herring immediately called for the governor’s resignation over news that Northam had worn blackface in medical school:
“It is no longer possible for Governor Northam to lead our Commonwealth and it is time for him to step down.”
SHOULD AN ACCUSED RAPIST BE GOVERNOR, EVEN IF HE IS BLACK?
Lt. Governor Fairfax would assume the governorship if Northam resigned, but he has been accused of a 2004 rape during the Democrat National Convention in Boston.
Long pretending to be the savior of black Americans, Democrats are in a quandary. Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax has been accused of rape. He is a black man, and next in line to replace Governor Ralph Northam, should he resign.
THRICE IN ONE WEEK: DEMS CAN’T MEET THEIR OWN “STANDARDS”
Democrats have been hoisted on their own petards THREE times in barely one week. Pretending to care about blacks AND pretending to care about women, what oh what can they do with this mess?
Dems had already called for Northam’s resignation, before Fairfax’s accuser came forward. But, if Fairfax becomes governor, aren’t they denying the #MeToo movement and the pain of women who claim they have been sexually assaulted?
No Democrat has called for Fairfax to step down, he is black, after all. But, if he refuses to become governor, “Herring, The Racist” will become Virginia’s governor.
RACIST OR RAPIST OR RACIST: SO HARD TO CHOOSE
Racist? Rapist? Racist? With such sterling qualifications, how can the Dems choose between them? Perhaps all three should leave.
Virginia’s Speaker of the House of Delegates, Kirk Cox, is next in line after AG Herring. Cox is a Republican! Oh, isn’t Democrat politics a fun sport to watch?

RACE-BAITING: LIVE BY RACISM, DIE BY RACISM
Last week Ralph Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook (when he was age 25) splashed across the media. Under his name, in large font, is a photo of two people. One is in full blackface, wearing a straw hat over a curly black wig. This smiling goon is standing next to someone wearing a white Ku Klux Klan outfit.
In this disgusting photo, neither idiot is identifiable. First, Northam admitted that one of these idiots was him, sparking an amusing debate over which costume was worse. Later, he claimed that neither the person hidden by blackface, nor the person inside the KKK hood, was him. As of Monday, Northam refuses to resign.
Ralph Northam won Virginia’s governor race in November 2017 against the GOP candidate, Ed Gillespie*, with disgusting, race-baiting ads. Northam’s ads painted Gillespie as a racist trying to mow down minorities with a pickup truck. This, despite the lack of evidence that Gillespie had any racist tendencies.
Northam PERSONALLY set his “you are racist” standard.
Race-baiting has long been a Democrat campaign technique. In the 1860s the Democrat Party in Southern States created the Klan to both terrorize black Americans, and to convince white voters that they were “controlling” the blacks. “Vote for Democrats, we will protect you from blacks” was the race-baiting theme. In fact, whites had little to fear from blacks.
*The basis for this racism charge is due to the fact that Gillespie wanted to crack down on MS-13 gangs that are terrorizing immigrant communities. Say what? Wanting to reduce victimization of (mostly) immigrants makes Gillespie a racist? No doubt this asinine Liberal “logic” effected the vote.
