Virginia Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax today seemed to blame his alleged victims for the media circus regarding his sexual assault accusations, comparing his treatment to a public lynching.
Fairfax today made more heads spin as he appeared to blame his alleged victims for daring to come forward, comparing his treatment by the media and other politicians to a modern day lynching. The comparison was made even more incendiary after “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s apparent hate hoax, which involved an attempt to tie rope around his neck and pour him with gasoline.
He made the unsettling comparison on Sunday when delivering a surprise speech before the Virginia State Senate.
“I’ve heard much about anti-lynching on the floor of this very Senate, where people were not given any due process whatsoever, and we rue that,” Fairfax said, referencing legislation the General Assembly passed expressing “profound regret” for lynchings in Virginia between 1877 and 1950.
“And we talk about hundreds, at least 100 terror lynchings that have happened in the Commonwealth of Virginia under those very same auspices. And yet we stand here in a rush to judgment with nothing but accusations and no facts and we decide that we are willing to do the same thing,” Fairfax said.
This continues a pattern of belittling his alleged victims in an attempt to deny their stories, as according to reports Fairfax remarked “f**k that b**ch” during an off record conversation while trying to discredit one of the accusers earlier this month.

Virginia’s Republican lawmakers are now attempting to get a sworn testimony from Fairfax and his accusers, something that would meet the request of one of Fairfax’s accusers, who said in an article last week that her life has been turned upside down in the week after coming forward with her story.
In her article, she said that she has refused calls from politicians and media outlets to make the alleged rape a partisan issue or media talking point, and as such has been ignored.
Watson also stated that reporters and researchers have dug into every facet of her personal life, going as far as researching her elementary school records in an attempt to find evidence she may be untrustworthy or lying about the alleged rape.
Rather than a “secret” investigation into Fairfax, she demands a public hearing, and blames the Virginia legislature and the media for refusing to do its job and investigate the allegations publicly.
While Fairfax has yet to deliver a sworn statement, he has readily used his bully pulpit to blame his alleged victims.
CNN Journos Are Throwing a Fit About a Trump Administration Official’s Pro-Western Civilization Comments
On June 29, 2020, writers Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott penned an op-ed at CNN attacking Merritt Corrigan, a deputy White House liaison at the US Agency for International Development, for some of the tweets she made between 2019 and 2020.
They claimed that she “has a history of inflammatory rhetoric aimed at refugees, the LGBTQ community and women.” CNN’s KFile analyzed several of the tweets from Corrigan’s account, “which were captured by the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine.”
Corrigan was previously employed at Hungary’s Embassy in the U.S.where she tweeted in support of nationalist Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on multiple occasions. She described him as “the shining champion of Western civilization,” according to ProPublica, which covered a number of Corrigan’s tweets on June 5.
Corrigan was also attacked for some of her anti-mass migration tweets. “Mass deportations when?,” Corrigan tweeted back in October 2019, linking to a 2010 article in which German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared that Germany’s multicultural experiment was a failure.
Corrigan also questioned radical feminist narratives, which bothered the hall monitors in the mainstream media. She was singled out in particular over a comment that she made in response to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren’s statement in support of homosexual marriage during a Democratic presidential townhall.
“This sick statement by Warren, which glibly mocks a real crisis happening in our society, is exactly why women shouldn’t be in office. They will always advocate for themselves at the expense of men, and revel in it,” she tweeted back in October 2019.
In another tweet from that same month, Corrigan bashed conservative radio host Michael Knowles for sharing a picture of himself with a drag queen.
“Right wing gatekeepers have made it abundantly clear that their allegiance is to Satan and those who carry out his agenda of appalling sexual perversion over those who question the liberal status quo,” Corrigan tweeted.
It’s funny how outlets like CNN will obsess over people’s social media history, while turning a blind eye to journalists on the Left like the Washington Post’s global opinions editor Karen Attiah who recently declared that “White women are lucky that we are just calling them ‘Karen’s.’ And not calling for revenge,” in a tweet she quickly deleted.
CNN would be better served by actually reporting on the news and doing real journalism.
But that that might be too much to ask from a purveyor of Fake News like CNN which is more interested in perpetuating political correctness and distorting political developments to fit their globalist agenda.
