Racist Ralph Northam Confirms ‘Darkening’ His Face, and Students Called Him ‘Coon Man’

Published

on

Democrat governor Ralph Northam, who has been accused of repeated instances of racism over the years, rambled in his press conference Saturday regarding the racism scandal engulfing his administration.

Northam denied that he ever assembled or bought his medical school yearbook, and he said that he does not believe he was one of the people in the photograph on his yearbook page. However, he did acknowledge “mistakes” on many occasions, likely because he knows more details of his racial history will be coming out as he defies the Virginia Democrats and clings to office.

“My main nickname, in high school and college, was Goose. There were two individuals…a year ahead of me who called me ‘Coon Man,'” Northam confirmed.

“And I regret that,” Northam said, referring to his “Coon Man” nickname making it into the yearbook.

Northam said the photo “was clearly racist and offensive.”

“I can not and will not excuse the content of the photo. It was offensive, racist, and despicable,” Northam said.

“I believe then, and now, that I am not either of the people in that photo,” Northam said.

Northam acknowledged that his excuse is “difficult to believe.”

“I have made significant progress…I am far from perfect, and I can always strive to do more.”

“The person I was is not the man I am today,” Northam saids.

“I am asking for the opportunity to earn your forgiveness,” Northam said.

The protesters don’t seem to be too interested in opening up a conversation with their governor at this point.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?

Published

on

Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?

Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.

Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”

However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.

The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.

In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.

One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.

The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”

The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”

Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”

Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.

His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”

Sanders responded, “Yes.”

Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.

All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.

Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
