Protesters outraged by Virginia governor Ralph Northam’s racist past showed up outside the Governor’s Mansion Saturday to make it clear that they want Northam to leave office. Northam is under intense national pressure to resign after Big League Politics published a medical school yearbook photo of Northam and his friend posing in blackface and a Ku Klux Klan robe, respectively.
Activist Art Burton said, “We are here today because the history of Jim Crow is still alive and living in the Governor’s Mansion.”

Joe Biden is the latest Democrat to call for Northam to resign for his racist history.
There is no place for racism in America. Governor Northam has lost all moral authority and should resign immediately, Justin Fairfax is the leader Virginia needs now.

But Virginia senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner — while expressing concern about the situation — have not yet asked Northam to resign.
The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus convened an emergency late-night meeting. Governor Northam could not do anything to convince them that he should remain in office.
Former governor Terry McAuliffe stated, “This has been a heartbreaking day. Ralph Northam is my friend and he served well as my Lt. Governor and as Governor. His actions on display in this photo were racist, unacceptable and inexcusable at any age and any time.”
“The situation that he has put himself and the Commonwealth of Virginia in is untenable. It’s time for Ralph to step down, and for the Commonwealth to move forward,” stated former governor McAuliffe.
“These images arouse centuries of anger, anguish, and racist violence and they’ve eroded all confidence in Gov. Northam’s ability to lead. We should expect more from our elected officials. He should resign,” said New Jersey senator Cory Booker.
Democratic senator Kamala Harris of California called for Northam to resign.
“Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together,” Senator Harris stated.

Harris joins the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in calling for Northam to resign.
“Black face in any manner is always racist and never okay. No matter the party affiliation, we can not stand for such behavior, which is why the NAACP is calling for the resignation of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam,” said NAACP president Derrick Johnson.

Nick Sandmann Makes Triumphant Return to March For Life A Year After Covington Hate Hoax
Sandmann emerged victorious from the dastardly, shameful libel attempt.
Covington Catholic student Nick Sandman returned to Washington D.C’s March for Life on Friday, one year after he was made the target of a vicious libel campaign that attempted to slander the Kentucky teenager as racist for his encounter with a raucous Native American protestor.
The Kentucky high schooler, who was 17 at the time, was accosted by Nathan Philips at the 2019 March for Life, kicking off a national controversy. CNN, Ben Shapiro, and the New York Times attempted to mercilessly smear Sandmann for the interaction, claiming he had somehow dealt with Philips in a racist manner.
After the incident was further exposed, it became obvious that Sandmann had simply stood by respectfully as Philips approached a group of Covington Catholic students and started banging on a drum.
Sandmann tweeted images of his return to the event on his personal Twitter page.

It’s heartening to see that Sandmann hasn’t backed down from his pro-life convictions in light of the national hate campaign waged against him by the mainstream media. He mentioned on his Twitter page that he underwent an interview with NBC at the very area of the National Mall where he was accosted by Philips.
Exactly one year ago today, Nathan Phillips approached after the March For Life in Washington, D.C.
Today I stood in the exact same spot I had year ago and did my first fair interview compared to the setup @ NBC.
I won’t ever be bullied or surrender. Thanks for all your support

Sandmann has taken his defamers to court and won. Fake news network CNN was recently forced to pay an undisclosed sum in a settlement to Sandmann, a small price to pay for their defamation of the pro-life teen.
The debunking of the Covington Catholic hate hoax was one of the first major media hate campaigns to be effectively discredited, making it clear that the days in which fake news smear artists could ruthlessly smear patriotic Americans without fear of consequences are over.
President Donald Trump attended this year’s March for Life, speaking of his pro-life principles and pledging to continue the fight against abortion as President.
