Ralph Northam Is Descended From Slave Owners

Published

on

Democrat Virginia governor Ralph Northam, caught in scandal after I published a photo from his medical school yearbook page showing a man in blackface and another man in a Ku Klux Klan hood (prompting multiple confirmations from Northam that he was in the photo), is the descendant of slave owners.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported in 2017:

“He recently called his father, retired Judge Wescott Brownlee Northam, to ask.

“The news that my ancestors owned slaves disturbs and saddens me, but the topic of slavery has always bothered me,” Ralph Northam said in an interview. “My family’s complicated story is similar to Virginia’s complex history. We’re a progressive state, but we once had the largest number of slaves in the union.”…

Wescott Northam’s father, Thomas Long Northam, also was a judge and died when Wescott was 14. All the Northams before him were farmers, Wescott Northam said. Wescott’s grandfather was Levi Jacob Northam, and Levi’s father was James Northam — the great-great-grandfather of Ralph Northam.

The slave schedules with the federal census in 1850 and 1860 show James Northam owned eight slaves in 1860 and nine slaves in 1850. The 1860 slave schedule listed Levi Northam with three slaves, two of whom he employed but were owned by others. The schedules listed the slaves’ ages — from 1 year old to 60 — but not their names.”

Democrat Virginia senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, joined by Congressman Bobby Scott, offered their review of governor Ralph Northam’s strange press conference in which he vowed to continue governing, despite not having any support. Northam has been undone by the “Blackface-Klan” photograph in his medical school yearbook — first published by Big League Politics.

Warner and Kaine were holding out to see if Northam could pull it together. No longer.

White Student Government Leaders Resign from Their Positions Because of White Guilt

Published

on

The President and the Vice President of the University of Connecticut’s Undergraduate Student Government recently stepped down from their posts.

And they did so because of white guilt.

VP Alex Ose stepped down last week, according to a report from The Daily Campus. She alluded to “the climate and incidents of racial injustice across the country and at the university.” But as Greg Piper of the College Fix noted she did so “without elaborating on what’s wrong at UConn (or why she can’t address the perceived problem as an elected official)”.

Ose stated:

I feel that it is my duty to step down from my position to make space for BIPOC (black, indigineous and people of color) voices to truly rise and be heard. It is my responsibility to make space, not to create an echo.

Ose also called on the rest of the white members of the student government to resign. She challenged her white colleagues to think about the “intent” they have in holding leadership positions and consider making space for BIPC students.

President Joshua Crow wasn’t as radical when he resigned.

“It is important in this time to ensure that marginalized groups have the platforms they need,” he declared, according to The Daily Campus.

Funny enough, Piper pointed out that “Crow’s temporary replacement is … another white guy, Will Schad.”

None of what we see taking place at UConn is occurring in a vacuum. It’s all a part of the cultural revolution that has taken place since the death of George Floyd.

Since the Right has largely put up a feckless defense against the Left as of lately, such groveling to PC mobs will continue at breakneck speeds.

America needs a real opposition to these cultural radicals.
