On Thursday, November 7, 2019, former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe criticized Laura Ingraham’s “racist kind of talk” after the Fox News host argued that Democrat’s strong performance in statewide elections was largely due to an increase in the “foreign-born” population.
“She oughta take her racist policies, go sit with Donald Trump and have a good afternoon talking to each other,” McAuliffe said on CNN when questioned about Ingraham’s comments.
McAuliffe served as Virginia governor from 2014-2018.
“We don’t want that in the Commonwealth in Virginia,” he continued. “We are a strong state because of our diversity.”
The former Virginia Governor praised diversity, seeing it as a strength.
It’s the diversity that makes us the strong country we are. It makes Virginia strong. We love our diversity [and] we don’t want that racist kind of talk in our state,” he stated, making the case that Democrats won control of the General Assembly due to how they “focused on issues that matter to people.
McAuliffe added, “We are inclusive, open, welcoming, we’re booming.”
The Virginia Democratic Party on Tuesday gained control of Virginia’s government for the first time since 1994. Democrats won at least 21 of 40 seats in the state Senate and 51 seats in the 100-member House of Delegates. These victories motivated Democratic Virginia Governor Ralph Northam to state that the “ground has shifted in Virginia government.”
Northam is already promising to unveil legislation dealing with gun control, climate change, and the LGBTQ community, all legislative items at the top of the Democratic agenda. He’s pushing this entire agenda forward despite photos of him wearing a KKK or blackface coming to light a few months ago. In addition, his Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax was accused of multiple cases of sexual assault.
Even when considering Northam’s flirtation with racism in the past and his troubled political team, Northam continues to operate without much social repercussions. On the other hand, Ingraham is called a “racist” for simply using statistical figures to analyze a political trend.
In the wake of the results, Ingraham commented on Wednesday, November 6, 2019 “that demographic changes throughout the state, but especially in Northern Virginia, have altered what was once a moderate to right-of-center state.”
“And it made it really a petri dish for radical left-wing ideas,” she continued. “Virginia’s foreign-born population nearly doubled from 2000 and 2017, and these immigrants are mostly concentrated in Northern Virginia. Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, outside of D.C., and they are altering the demographic makeup of the state — and, as The Washington Post and others have pointed out, the electorate.”
She then said Virginia’s voter base has been “dragged” to the left “since immigrants are more likely to vote Democrat.”
“That’s just a fact of life,” she asserted, before also arguing that suburban women’s changing political views have played a role in Virginia’s political shift.
According to a Washington Post report, Virginia’s foreign-born population increased 78 percent between 2000 and 2017.
Exit polls have yet to provide details about Virginia’s recent elections.
However, Ingraham’s instincts might be correct.
Recent data show that congressional districts with foreign-born populations higher than the national average voted overwhelmingly for Democrats in 2018.
For that reason, politicians and their media surrogates are beginning to label anyone who simply points out statistical realities as “racist.”
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.
Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
