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.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
