EXCLUSIVE: Ralph Northam’s Great-Grandfather was ‘Red Shirt’, Family Owned 42 Slaves

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

It’s all in the family for Democratic Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam, whom Big League Politics exposed as a blackface/KKK hood-wearing racist two weeks ago.

Northam’s roots can be traced back to his great grandfather, Captain J.E. Brownlee, also a Democrat, who fought against the Yankees in the Civil War. After the war, he was a stalwart member of the “Red Shirts,” a group of white supremacists – all Democrats – who made a name for themselves by intimidating freed slaves to stop them from voting.

“In the days of the sixties that tried men’s courage and called for self-sacrifice and devotion to their country, Capt. Brownlee was tried and found not wanting,” Brownlee’s obituary reads. “With his valiant company of ‘Red Shirts’ he was always at the front, and in the right place, and it may truthfully be said that he did as much to redeem his country from Radical rule and tyranny as any man in upper Carolina.”

Here is a snapshot of Northam’s ancestry, proving that he is indeed the great-grandson of Brownlee.

The Red Shirts are described thusly by Dave Neiwert, who contributes for the SPLC:

State Democrats organized parades and rallies in every county of South Carolina. Many of the participants were armed and mounted; all wore red. Mounted men gave an impression of greater numbers. When Wade Hampton and other Democrats spoke, the Red Shirts would respond enthusiastically, shouting the campaign slogan, “Hurrah for Hampton.” This created a massive spectacle that united and motivated those present.

Red Shirts sought to intimidate both white and black watchers into voting for the Democrats or even not at all. The Red Shirts and similar groups were especially active in those few states with an African-American majority. They broke up Republican meetings, disrupted their organizing, and intimidated black voters at the polls. Many freedmen stopped voting from fear, and others voted for Democrats under pressure. The Red Shirts did not hesitate to use violence, nor did the other private militia groups. In the Piedmont counties of Aiken, Edgefield, and Barnwell, freedmen who voted were driven from their homes and whipped, while some of their leaders were murdered. During the 1876 presidential election, Democrats in Edgefield and Laurens counties voted “early and often”, while freedmen were barred from the polls.

According to the 1860 census, John Brownlee, Northam’s great-great grandfather, owned 42 slaves. Among them, presumably, were later freed slaves whom Northam’s great-grandfather attempted to intimidate out of voting:

Author’s Note: BLP never wanted to shame anyone for immutable traits, like family lineage, or to disparage those who fought in the Civil War for what they believed was right. It is part of American history, and must not be forgotten. But the modern political left has made these rules. They must learn to play by them.

Shipments of 20,000+ Fake US Driver’s Licenses From China Intercepted at Chicago Airport

For use in election fraud?

Published

Customs authorities have intercepted more than a 1,000 individual shipments containing almost 20,000 fraudulent driver’s licenses at Chicago O’Hare Airport this year alone.

19,888 fake US driver’s licenses have been caught in smuggling busts at the airport, distributed throughout 1,513 fraudulent shipments.

Fox 5 New York is reporting that the fake ID’s are coming from mainland China, Hong Kong, South Korea, and the UK.

These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences,” Customs and Border Patrol’s Ralph Piccirilli said in a statement. “Criminal organizations use these counterfeit IDs to avoid attracting attention to their illegal activities.

Customs officials have described the fake Chinese ID’s as extremely realistic and well-made, stating that the barcode on the fake documents passes electronic verification checks.

If this many fake ID’s are coming in at one airport alone, there’s a significant possibility that many more fake documents are being smuggled into the country at other airports. It’s entirely unclear what these ID’s are being used for- most of the bars that underage college kids would enter to drink alcohol in are closed. There’s a very real possibility the Chinese-made fake ID’s could be an integral part of an election fraud operation. Even the most strict voter ID states such as Arizona accept a driver’s license as proof of voter registration and eligibility.

Customs officers stationed at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport are reporting that they’ve busted more than 2,000 fake ID’s since 2019, describing a surge in the smuggling of fake driver’s licenses.
