Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s career-dissipation light is blinking red. Democrats are incensed by a racist photograph taken 35 year ago. The governor’s support for infanticide — just days ago — drew nary a protest from the party of Robert Byrd, Hugo Black, Orval Faubus, George Corley Wallace, Bull Connor and Theodore Bilbo.
The photo, which appears in Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook, shows the future governor either in blackface or wearing the full regalia of an erstwhile auxiliary of the Democratic Party, hood and all.
First the liberal Democrat admitted he was in the picture and humbly apologized. Then, he denied it was him, but apologized again. By now, every Democrat over the age of six is calling for his resignation.
While Northam has Democrats in a frenzy (race is a central pillar of the party), they’re cool with his support for infanticide. In January, the Gov. (himself a physician) defended the bill of a fellow Virginia Democrat allowing abortion while the mother is in labor. Dems vie with each other to see who can be the most odious here.
Ole Doc Northam explained the proper procedure in such a situation: “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” on whether or not the kid would die.
There’s a 1-in-3 chance that baby would be black.
In 2014, 36% of all abortions in the U.S. were performed on black women, compared to a total black population of 13.3%. More than 19 million African American children have been disposed of in this fashion since Roe.
Could it be intended to hold down the black population? Is it a coincidence that 79% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in minority neighborhoods?
No child will die as a direct result of that moronic photograph. But roughly 420,000 black babies will be aborted this year – courtesy of the Party of Choice – a choice of which the Klan would approve.
