An appointee of Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam was forced to resign in disgrace on Tuesday after bigoted posts she made on social media to foment hatred against the Catholic Church were unearthed.
Northam had appointed Democratic Party activist Gail Gordon Donegan to the Virginia Council on Women, but she had to quit her post after her incendiary comments about Catholics were discovered and caused great controversy.
“Abortion is morally indefensible to Catholic priests bcuz it results in fewer children to rape,” she wrote in a disgusting post from 2010.
That same year, Donegan wrote: “Saw a bumper sticker: ‘You can’t be both Catholic & Pro-Choice.’ Add: You can be a pedophile though!”
One year later, she wrote: “Go tell a Catholic they have dirt on their forehead,” including the hashtag #waystooffend to her post.
In addition to her comments about Catholics, she also made rude and profane comments about Republicans on her social media profile. She called former Republican U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock a “sh*thead” and told Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Radhika Jones to “f**k off, eat shit, and crawl back to hell.” Virginia’s two bishops led the charge that ultimately prompted her resignation.
“We expect anyone appointed to a council, board or commission for the commonwealth to be respectful of all faith groups and civil in his or her public comments. Her statements are offensive to Catholics and our faith,” Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington said in a statement.
Bishop Barry C. Knestout of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond said that Donegan “has demonstrated a pattern of ridiculing Catholic beliefs and employing stereotypes designed to malign people of faith. Had these comments been directed toward any other group of persons, they would have disqualified her from this role.”
They eventually got their wish, but certain Democratic Party leaders feel that Donegan should have been kept in her role even though she made hateful remarks toward Catholics on many different occasions.
“It is unfortunate that the Commonwealth will not benefit from the commitment and advocacy of Gail Donegan,” Senate Minority Leader Dick Saslaw (D-Fairfax) wrote in a Twitter post. “Her dedication to important issues would have made a great addition to the Virginia Council on Women.”
Donegan was forced to resign, but Gov. Northam remains in office despite the fact that he could never dispute the Big League Politics report showing his embarrassingly racist blackface photos from a college yearbook. She may have been the sacrificial lamb in this case, but overall, this hypocrisy shows the Democrats will only pay lip service against hate and bigotry when they are absolutely obligated to do so.
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Blames Nursing Homes for COVID-19 Deaths for Following Order Issued by His Health Department
Cuomo is playing the blame game.
Governor Andrew Cuomo is blaming nursing homes for following an order issued by his health department in March to house COVID-19 patients in the facilities, which has resulted in an explosion of deaths in nursing homes across his state.
“The obligation is on the nursing home to say ‘I can’t take a COVID-positive person,’” Cuomo claimed at a recent press conference – adding that it is the responsibility of the nursing home to say if they are “too crowded,” “too busy,” or if they do “not have enough PPE” to house COVID patients.
“If they say ‘I can’t take the person,’ they can’t take the person so that’s how it works,” Cuomo said.
However, Cuomo is misrepresenting the actual text of the orders issued by his administration. Cuomo did not give nursing homes any choice but to take COVID-19 patients in a move that would go on to earn him a great deal of scrutiny.
“No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the [nursing home] solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19,” the order read.
“NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or re-admission,” it continued.

Cuomo is deflecting blame after widespread outrage over his administration’s order that has doomed many of the most vulnerable New York residents to painful, miserable, lonely deaths.
Big League Politics has reported about the “blood” that is on Cuomo’s hands for putting the elderly at risk:
The Health Department of New York made a deadly decision on March 25 when it forced nursing homes to take in people who held a positive diagnosis for coronavirus in certain cases.
It was determined by the state of New York that these coronavirus patients were “medically stable,” but in actuality, they were far from stable. They still carried the disease that could be easily passed to others in these crowded facilities.
The New York Post reported that in one particularly morbid case, coronavirus patients were admitted to a nursing home in Queens with body bags accompanying them.
“My colleague noticed that one of the boxes was extremely heavy. Curious as to what could possibly be making that particular box so much heavier than the rest, he opened it,” an executive from the nursing home said to The Post on Thursday.
“The first two coronavirus patients were accompanied by five body bags,” the whistleblower added.
The body bags would soon be filled with corpses as coronavirus swept through the hospital among the most vulnerable population. Thirty residents would die from coronavirus-related in just days after the first COVID+ patients were admitted at one nursing home alone.
“Cuomo has blood on his hands. He really does. There’s no way to sugarcoat this,” the health care executive said.
“Why in the world would you be sending coronavirus patients to a nursing home, where the most vulnerable population to this disease resides?” they added.
Cuomo will never take responsibility for the deadly impacts of his failed public policy regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
