It hasn’t been a good week for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. A few days ago he caused a firestorm when he said this in talking about the new abortion bill in Virginia:
If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother. So, I think this was really blown out of proportion. We want the government not to be involved in these types of decisions.
This is evil personified. What does it say about an ideology that would even allow this as possible? Under ANY condition. The left has attempted to dehumanize the human fetus for much of my lifetime. Sadly they have been pretty successful, especially with the current generation coming up. To me this is a culmination of Darwinism. It teaches that there is nothing special about us and that it’s the survival of the fittest (i.e. strong). Abortion is like a religion to the devout left and any attempt to oppose it is met with opposition like we saw this week.
While the national media pretty much ignored it as best they could, it caused such an uproar in the state that the bill has now been shelved.
But that was just the beginning of Northam’s problems.
Today all hell broke loose when a high school picture of Northam either in black face or a KKK robe and hood surfaced. And this time the media did NOT ignore him. While there was criticism from the GOP (both state and nationally), the most intense and shocking attacks came from the left:
Alyssa Milano: Join me in demanding @RalphNortham resign NOW. #NorthamMustResign #LoveNotHate
Julian Castro: It doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat. This behavior was racist and unconscionable. Governor Northam should resign.
Moveon: If @RalphNortham is one of the two people pictured in the highly disturbing, horrific photo wearing either blackface or a KKK hood – or if he selected or approved of its use on his yearbook page — he should immediately resign. There are no excuses for such a racist display.
NARAL: Governor Ralph Northam admitted that he is pictured in the racist photo in his medical school yearbook. Making amends and rebuilding trust must start with resigning his post. Virginians deserve better.
Kamala Harris:Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.
Mia Farrow: Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam must resign
Michaell Avenatti: Gov. Northam must resign immediately. And any Dem that looks the other way on this or offers ridiculous excuses is an absolute hypocrite. What is wrong is wrong regardless of political affiliation. He was 25 at the time, it was 1984, and he still has not come 100 percent clean.
Boy when you’ve got Avenatti on your tail you MUST be in trouble!
So what is going on here? Don’t get me wrong. I think Northam should resign. But I do not for one minute believe that all of a sudden the Democrats were caught by surprise. Or appalled and outraged. They had to have known this when they were vetting Northam for the Governor’s race. Normally they would circle the wagons around him. After all, Bill Clinton was a racist and they let him serve 2 terms as President. Robert Byrd was the Senate Majority leader after serving in the highest positions of the KKK. Shoot, Ted Kennedy let a woman drown and they didn’t blink an eye. Need I say more?
Call me crazy, but I think all this is a total show act. We are being played. Look at the names from Hollywood above. Do you really think Mia Farrow gives a hoot about politics in Virginia? Or that Alyssa Milano even knew who Ralph Northam was 24 hours ago? C’mon. These radical Hollywood leftists are like the Borg. There is no “independent” thought. They simply react and parrot the liberal group think from social media. Any moment now Cher and Rob Reiner will chime in. Jim Carrey will no doubt paint a picture. I am not buying any of this.
So the question is, why are they doing this to Northam?
One word: abortion.
As I said above, that issue is the holy grail for the left. And earlier this week, Ralph Northam made a critical mistake: he accidentally exposed the the left for being OK with abortion post-birth (i.e. infanticide). And in doing so he doomed the bill’s success (not only now but for the foreseeable future). And he has given Trump an issue that is uniting the GOP. They will not tolerate that. They are scared to death that if Trump gets another constitutionalist on the Supreme Court then Roe v. Wade will be overturned. And RBG is in bad health from what we have read. You see, Andrew Cuomo played it smart in New York. No one really paid much attention to that bill until it was too late.
In other words, Northam just became expendable. He will not survive this. I think he is gone by Monday. Maybe even before the Super Bowl pre-game.
Oh, and in case your wondering, when Northam resigns, the Lieutenant Governor takes over. That would be Justin Fairfax, a young African-American liberal. Isn’t that interesting? It hits most of the buttons of the left’s identity politics. The only thing missing is that he’s not a woman. But you can’t have everything you know. And it still beats an old white man any day (when it becomes necessary that is).
If I were AOC, I would be watching this very close and determining if maybe I should talk less and listen more. That would be good advice for her.
