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

Prominent leftist groups still want Northam gone.

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.”

Kanye West Announces Presidential Campaign; 2020 Spoiler?

A shock entry to the Presidential race.

Published

on

Rap artist and businessman Kanye West announced that he would be running for President in a surprise Saturday tweet; surprising some political commentators on what would be a late entry to the 2020 election. However, the Montana resident and businessman declined to specifically confirm that he would be running in the 2020 election, which is merely four months away.

West generally trends conservative and adopted pious Christian views several years ago; changing the subject matter of his music to better reflect biblical themes. He’s maintained a warm relationship with President Trump, speaking of his opposition to stifling political correctness in the entertainment industry; the rapper even stated that he planned to cast his first ever vote for President Trump in the 2020 election.

Should he run in this election, it seems more likely that West would be at least inclined to vote for himself.

However, West’s appeal to the black community could mean that he serves as a de facto spoiler taking away enough votes from Democratic nominee Joe Biden to prevent the party elder figure from securing a November victory.

West was edited into the Wikipedia article for the pending 2020 presidential election hours within his tweet, being featured as a major party candidate in the election summary of the page.

Kanye West is yet to file a declaration of candidacy with the Federal Elections Committee, and it’s too late for him to get on the ballot on many major American states, raising questions about the timing or seriousness of his supposed 2020 campaign. However, the colorful musician could be referring to a 2024 campaign.
