Democrat Virginia lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax reportedly expressed disdain for Vanessa Tyson, the Stanford fellow accusing Fairfax of sexually assaulting her at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.
Fairfax, who then worked as John Edwards’ “body man” on the John Kerry campaign, is slated to become governor if Ralph Northam resigns from office for his racist yearbook photo. But Northam’s resignation is now complicated by Fairfax’s scandal, and by third-in-line attorney general Mark Herring’s admission that Herring also wore blackface in college.
Fairfax is not happy, according to NBC News.
NBC News has learned that Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax used profane language in a private meeting Monday night, while referring to his accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson.

Big League Politics first reported that Vanessa Tyson had accused Fairfax of sexual assault Sunday evening.
Fairfax has refused to apply the standard to which Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was held during the Blasey Ford allegations- believing all women without due process – and vehemently denied the allegations, threatening to sue BLP in a desperate denial released at 3 a.m. Monday. He later did the same to The Washington Post, who disputed his account as to why they spiked the story after they learned of the allegations years ago.
Monday, Fairfax speculated wildly as to who might have been behind the leak of the sexual assault allegations. He appeared to suggest that embattled Governor Ralph Northam, also a Democrat, might have been the source of the leak. BLP exposed Northam’s racist past on Friday, igniting a national furor has lead to calls for Northam’s resignation from powerful Democrats nationwide.
So far, both men have refused to resign.
The law firm did not immediately respond to a comment request.
Is Sherlock Holmes About to be Cancelled?
Will Sherlock Holmes be the next victim of the woke purges?
According to a report from Express, certain literary experts believe that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote “crass racist descriptions” in his novels about Sherlock Holmes. Arthur Conan Doyle was the author of the world famous Sherlock Holmes novel.
Doyle had a statue built in Edinburgh built in Edinburgh across the house Doyle was born in.
In one of Doyle’s short stories, The Adventure of the Three Gables, he wrote about an occasion in which Holmes stared at the “hideous mouth” of a “huge negro” and informed the “savage”: “I don’t like the smell of you.”
Similarly, in The Sign of the Four, the second novel which featured Sherlock Holmes in 1890, Doyle describes the indigenous people of the Andaman Islands off the coast of India as “naturally hideous, having large, misshapen heads.”
Dr. Merrick Burrow, a professor of English at the University of Huddersfield said to The Times of Scotland: “Especially in the early Sherlock Holmes stories, there are crass racist descriptions.”
“There is no question that the language used to describe people of various ethnicities is inflammatory, offensive and insensitive by any contemporary standards. The stories are almost all narrated by Dr Watson and there is a racist framework of descriptions of immigrants in negative terms,” Burrow remarked.
Burrow asserted that the author should not be judged by contemporary standards. She emphasized that Doyle’s “crass characterizations were fairly typical of his time [The Victorian Era].
He continued: “There is a massive difference between someone who was a slave trader or waged military campaigns and someone who wrote books.”
Jonathan McCafferty, the president of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, said there was “lamentable instances of language” in Doyle’s works.
Such concerns over Doyle’s alleged racism come in a time when Black Lives Matter protests have flared up in American and all over the world.
Such uproar has given the radical iconoclasts the opportunity to call for the destruction of Western history.
Doyle’s works are among the many pieces of European history that are fair game for destruction.
What we’re witnessing across the West is what happens when political correctness is allowed to run rampant.
