Democratic Governors Association, NAACP Re-Up Calls for Northam Resignation

Prominent leftist groups still want Northam gone.

Published

The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) has renewed its call for Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, outed by Big League Politics for wearing blackface or a KKK robe in his medical school yearbook, to resign.

“In a press conference Saturday, Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo (D), who leads the DGA, acknowledged what she called a “fluid” situation in Virginia, where Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) have both acknowledged appearing in blackface and Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) faces two allegations of sexual assault,” The Hill said.

The DGA called for Northam’s resignation before BLP exposed Fairfax as an alleged rapist. Herring admitted to wearing blackface days later.

“It’s a very, very disappointing and challenging set of circumstances in Virginia,” Raimondo reportedly said. “We felt that in light of these circumstances, it was appropriate, and stand by that.”

Northam handled the situation bizarrely, first admitting that he appeared in the photograph, then holding a press conference the next day to deny that appeared in the photograph. He did, however, admit to wearing blackface on a separate occasion.

The embattled Governor is expected to embark upon a “listening tour” to try to repair his reputation.

Big League Politics reported:

Racist Virginia Democrat governor Ralph Northam is setting off on a “listening tour” of the state to address his own well-documented racist past — which includes blackface or a Klan hood, blackface in emulation of Michael Jackson, and a collegiate screed about “the city streets.”

Northam’s listening tour will also featureNortham describing “what he he has learned from his own experiences,” according to an adviser.

America will be sure to listen closely to what Northam has learned since his racism finally caught up with him.

As protesters call for his resignation, and his own state party abandoned him, Northam is trying to become the world’s least convincing social justice warrior. A Daily Kos poll shows 60 percent of Virginians favor resignation and 24 percent hope he will stick it out.

The Hill reported that the first stop on the tour, scheduled for Virginia Union University, was cancelled after students objected to Northam’s presence.

The NAACP isn’t cutting Northam any slack, either.

“We must no longer sit back and be placated,” said the Rev. James R. Kelly, president of the Fauquier County NAACP, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

“We must no longer sit back and let someone’s party determine our support.”

Pelosi is Emboldened by Coronavirus Bailout, Vows to Dupe Republicans Harder Next Time

The Democrats’ socialist agenda is winning big during the coronavirus panic.

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled the wool over the eyes of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans with last week’s $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The disaster relief money was earmarked for many liberal pet projects, and Pelosi aims to do the same thing for the next round of bailouts.

She said on Monday that House Democrats are already preparing another massive stimulus bill, using the coronavirus pandemic to enact more socialism. She is likely to include massive infrastructure spending and serious government intervention into the health care markets in the upcoming legislation.

“Our first bills were about addressing the emergency. The third bill was about mitigation. The fourth bill would be about recovery. Emergency, mitigation, recovery,” Pelosi said during a conference call.

“I think our country is united in not only wanting to address our immediate needs — emergency, mitigation, and the assault on our lives and livelihoods — but also, how we recover in a very positive way,” she added.

Republican leaders are up in arms about how Pelosi is exploiting a crisis to get her partisan agenda muscled through Congress, but it is unclear if they have the courage to actually stop her.

“They’re approaching it — it seems like — as an opportunity to pass their political and ideological agenda. We’re approaching it as, ‘How do we protect the public health and our economy?’ And those are pretty divergent goals,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said.

Pelosi is eager to exploit the coronavirus crisis quickly and use the panic and fear in the public as an excuse to massively increase government spending and control.

“I do think that it is really important that as soon as we are here, we are ready to pass legislation,” she said.

President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans did Pelosi’s bidding when they moved forward a $2 trillion bailout bill that included funding for liberal policy goals that had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) sounded the alarm over the sham and attempted to get Congress to actually deliberate and vote on the bill. It instead passed on a voice vote with most legislators sequestered away from Washington D.C.

Massie’s principled stand against Pelosi’s profligate spending bill earned him a tongue lashing from President Trump, who now wants Massie replaced in Congress because he’s too conservative.

With no Republicans seemingly willing to stand up against Pelosi, there will likely be more bailout socialism on the way as the Democrats use coronavirus for their far-left power grabs.
