Media Helps Disgraced Democrats Northam, Fairfax and Herring Survive

The networks demand visually compelling images to drive coverage, and the Northam – Fairfax – Herring scandal has no compelling images: No howling mobs outside the Governor’s residence, no dramatic impeachment hearings with graphic testimony about alleged assaults at the hands of Lt. Gov. Fairfax, no college friends describing the blackface rap routine A.G. Herring performed.

Why the Virginia implosion really matters

Monica Crowley, Washington Times

The home of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry is convulsed in a multi-tiered scandal of such utter unbelievability that if you presented it as a screenplay, you’d be laughed out of Hollywood. The Northam, Herring and Fairfax scandals pose big liabilities to the Democratic Party heading into a critical electoral time. And they threaten major cultural movements surrounding race and women. Those things are far more significant than any single Democratic pol. And so, as they say on “Shark Tank,” “for this reason, they’re out.” It will be an unsurprising, and long-delayed, denouement.

A curtain call for the Virginia Minstrels

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Now the black and white gentlemen from Virginia have revived the tradition if not the particulars of minstrelsy, revised in form but faithful to the tradition. The Democrats were full of rectitude and righteous indignation last week, with unanimous demands that the guilty must step down. But that was then, and this is now, and maybe zero tolerance isn’t always such a good idea. Maybe 5 percent of intolerance can be tolerated. That’s both Jumpin’ Jim Crow and Mr. Bones, the star of the minstrel show, applauding.

The Virginia Democrats’ Minstrel Show

Warning: article includes some historical references that may be offensive to some readers. The racist behavior of Northam and Herring has exposed the deep vein of hypocrisy on race that runs through the Democrat Party. We believe both Northam and Herring should resign, because in addition to their racist pasts, they were elected through a fraud on the good people of Virginia who have worked hard to heal the Old Dominion’s racial divisions.

A Study in Morals

William Murchison, The American Spectator

No hint of moral horror escaped the Ralph Northam’s lips on infanticide, even as he recounted the facts. Moral horror we leave for other life situations, such as the prospect of alienating a key voting bloc and possibly, in consequence, losing an election and then — horror of horrors — losing political power. One thing we must admit about Joe Biden, in contrast with a mere Virginia governor: He knows what makes the modern world go round. And it’s not morality.

For Virginia Dems, there goes the wheel that comes around

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

You might think that Virginia Democrats would feel ashamed of themselves now for how they campaigned against Ed Gillespie in his race against Mr. Northam two years ago. The killer television commercial that ruined the Gillespie campaign depicted a pick-up truck adorned with a Confederate battle flag and a Gillespie bumper sticker — you could imagine Mr. Gillespie driving if you wanted to — about to mow down a crowd of minority children. The moving finger writes, what goes around comes around, and all that good stuff.

Which Mitch McConnell Will Show Up To Defend The Unborn?

We applaud Senator McConnell and over forty other Republicans for co-sponsoring S.130 the “Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”, but whether the bill ever gets a vote depends entirely upon which Mitch McConnell shows up – the somnolent one who caves to every Schumer threat of a filibuster or the aggressive one who is muscling through S.1 to limit the President’s options in Syria and Afghanistan.

Outrage over blackface, silence over killing babies

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Perhaps Dr. Death should get himself one of those hoods that executioners have always been so fond of throughout the darkest of ages. It could even be pointy. I bet it comes in white, with convenient, yet fashionable, little eye holes. Virginia House Del. Kathy Tran introduced the legislation that, she admitted, would legalize “abortion” during actual labor. Among the rest of civilization, this is called “infanticide.” Or, more plainly, “murder.” But, hey, according to Death Squad Grand Wizard Ralph Northam, the baby will be kept “comfortable” while waiting for his or her death row conviction.

‘Coonman’ Northam Tries to Cop a Plea

David Catron, The American Spectator

It’s only a matter of time before Northam goes. The Democrats are burdened with a very sordid racial legacy, including slavery, the KKK, Jim Crow, segregation, white supremacy, civil rights, etc. The governor is an all too conspicuous reminder of this lengthy catalogue of crime. Indeed, considering how heavily they now rely on identity politics, he is about as radioactive as it gets. “Coonman” is a goner whether he knows it yet or not. His political executioners don’t do plea bargains.

The Left Won’t Stop at Ralph Northam

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

We are at the beginning of a Kulturkampf to purge America of all monuments and tributes to the white males who created, built and ruled the country, and once believed that they, their nation, their faith, and their civilization were superior to all others. And, without apology, they so acted in the world. Those two guys drinking beer in blackface and Klan robes and a hood thought they were being funny, but to the unamused members of a radicalized Democratic Party, there is nothing funny about them. And, after Northam, these intolerant people will demand that the Democratic Party nominate a candidate who will echo their convictions about America's past.

Cheerleading Infanticide Might Just Be The Tipping Point For Democrats

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

I’ve talked to a significant number of people who were probably nominally pro-life and who saw what the Democrats were doing in New York and Rhode Island and Virginia and were shell-shocked. But these people all agreed on one point that any civilized society would find unnecessary to debate. You can’t kill babies. Let’s make the swing-state Democrats make a choice – support unrestricted infanticide like the leaders of your disgusting party, or oppose killing babies. Choose.

Capitol Hill’s Invisible GOP “Leaders”

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The headline events of last week revealed Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise and the rest of the House GOP leadership team and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Assistant Republican Leader John Thune and Senate Republican Conference Chairman John Barrasso to be feckless, cowardly and unwilling to fight for the GOP’s principles.

Reminder: Ralph Northam Won After Calling Ed Gillespie Racist

Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media

The news is particularly horrific because Northam ran a smear campaign against Ed Gillespie in 2017, and won the Virginia governor race after tarring Gillespie as a white nationalist. Gillespie had immediately condemned the white nationalists in Charlottesville. In a moment of supreme irony, Northam defended himself on Saturday by referencing his own denunciation of Charlottesville. The Democrat sent out a disgusting mailer (which I received in the mail) tying both President Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie to the white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va.

Ralph Northam Is The Perfect Democrat

In his support for “partial birth infanticide” and race baiting campaign ads Ralph Northam ran as the perfect Democratic candidate for Governor. Now that the real Ralph Northam and his racist background has been revealed, his willingness to lie his way through a crisis in the best tradition of Bill and Hillary Clinton is likely to save his tenure as Governor.

The Establishment Media And Ed Gillespie Made Racist Ralph Northam Governor

The Gillespie campaign's opposition research was pathetic, but the media, and Washington Post in particular, don’t look for evidence of racism on the part of Democrats because they are deeply invested in the narrative that Republicans are racists and they don’t have any interest in turning up evidence that would disrupt that narrative by showing real racism on the part of Democrats.

The Boundless Depravity Of Democrats

In their embrace of "partial birth infanticide" Democrats in Virginia and New York have entered a realm of depravity not seen since Adolf Hitler began a program of eugenics and euthanasia to “cleanse” German society of people the Nazi elite deemed undesirable.

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

Northam victory based on dishonesty and racial animus

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Yes, Virginia, there is still a Jim Crow. And his name is Ralph Northam, who deployed the most racially charged, dishonest, divisive and incendiary campaign in decades to get elected governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia. Mr. Northam, nee Crow, won the must-win race Tuesday in which history and decadeslong political trends were so heavily in his favor that it should have been impossible for him to lose.

Shades of Clinton and 2016 have Democrats nervous about Ralph Northam

W. James Antle III, Washington Examiner

In the last gubernatorial race and a 2014 Senate contest in which Gillespie was the Republican nominee, the GOP overperformed the polls at the ballot box. The Democrats won both races anyway, but Northam's lead may not be sturdy enough to withstand Republicans overperforming again.
