Virginia Democrats Regret Not Giving Immediate Passes to Leaders for Racism, Sexism

Sexism and racism is acceptable as long as it comes from Democrats. That seems to be their new official policy.

Published

Months after scandals brought disgrace to the Virginia state government, Democrats in the Virginia legislature are expressing regret after calling Virginia Governor Ralph ‘Coonman’ Northam and Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax to be held accountable and resign for their racist and sexist actions.

“I’m sorry we did,” state Sen. Janet Howell (D-32nd) said of how she and others attacked Northam and Fairfax, adding that “there were a lot of life lessons” learned from the fiasco including, “Don’t rush to judgment.”

“Statements were made before people even talked to the governor,” said State Sen. Barbara Favola (D-31st), who initially called for resignations before backtracking.

The delusion only worsened from there as Democrats continued to pat themselves on the back for refusing to hold their disgraced officials accountable.

“Our session was a success,” said state Sen. Adam Ebbin (D-30th), perhaps trying to convince himself this was the case.

“We need to contemplate first,” Ebbin added, making it clear that he wants Democrats to protect their own corrupt leaders.

“Make sure you know your facts, particularly if you know the whole world is watching,” said Del. Mark Levine (D-45th), although he did not mention how any facts have changed since the initial reports.

In late January, Big League Politics broke a story featuring pictures of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s old college yearbook page where there was a picture of a man in blackface was standing next to a man in a Klan uniform. It was later determined that Northam, whose old nickname was ‘Coonman’, was the gentleman in blackface.

“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive,” Northam said at the time. “I am deeply sorry for the decision I made to appear as I did in this photo and for the hurt that decision caused then and now.”

“This behavior is not in keeping with who I am today and the values I have fought for throughout my career in the military, in medicine, and in public service. But I want to be clear, I understand how this decision shakes Virginians’ faith in that commitment,” he added.

Big League Politics has also reported frequently on Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax’s alleged history of violent sexual acts toward women.

Fairfax has been accused of sexual assault by Vanessa Tyson, a political science professor at Scripps College in Claremont, California, who claims he raped her during the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

“In my ideal world, I’d want him to resign.” Tyson said during an appearance on “CBS This Morning.” “I would want Meredith, myself, and Mr. Fairfax to be able to speak. To be heard. And particularly for survivors, I think this is incredibly important…we need to be treated as the human beings that we are.”

Tyson referred to another accuser in Meredith Watson, who claims Fairfax raped her while they attended Duke University. Fairfax steadfastly denies the women’s claims and even reportedly flew into a rage over the accusations saying a sexist slur about the victim: “F*ck that b*tch.”

This was Fairfax’s official response:

Despite the fact that there has been no accountability, Democrats are ready to move on and give the benefit of the doubt of their racist and sexist leaders in the state of Virginia.

“We all want Virginia to be a better place,” Del. Alfonso Lopez (D-49th) said.

The Democrats did not apply the same standard to Judge Roy Moore in Alabama, who they railroaded out of a Senate seat with false charges, or Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whose life they tried to destroy in a similar manner. Hypocrisy has become a holy sacrament of sorts for partisan liberals.

Free Speech Organization FIRE Defends Kansas State Student Jaden McNeil From a Politically Correct Lynch Mob, KSU Will Not Expel the Student

Published

on

After Kansas State University student Jaden McNeil made a Tweet in jest about George Floyd last week, he came under fire from all angles — athletes, the student body, and university administrators.

Given the tense climate of American political discourse in 2020, there was speculation that he was about to be expelled from the university.

Nevertheless, online activism from the likes of staunch right-winger Michelle Malkin helped create sufficient pushback against the lynch mobs that were descending on McNeil.

Now, McNeil has even more backup with free speech organization The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) coming to his defense.

FIRE sent KSU a resounding warning:

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty, freedom of speech, due process, academic freedom, legal equality, and freedom of conscience on America’s college campuses.

FIRE appreciates that Kansas State University is one of the few institutions in the country whose policies earn a ‘green light’ rating from FIRE. We write today in response to the University’s statement that it is reviewing its “options” concerning KSU undergraduate Jaden McNeil’s statement on social media.

KSU made a suggestive tweet in response to McNeil’s original tweet about Floyd:

 

A message from President Richard Myers: The insensitive comments posted by one K-State student hurts our entire community. These divisive statements do not represent for the values of our university. We condemn racism and bigotry in all its forms.

We are launching an immediate review of the university’s options. Black Lives Matter at Kansas State University and we will continue to fight for social justice.

Although McNeil was forced to delete his Tweet about George Floyd last week, sites like Revolver still maintained a record of it.

McNeil tweeted jokingly, “Congratulations to George Floyd on being drug free for an entire month!”

FIRE’s letter served as a reminder to KSU that as a public university it is bound by the United States Constitution and is compelled to protect free speech per the First Amendment. Yes, even when it comes to offensive speech.

The letter added:

While McNeil’s tweets may be deeply offensive to many, they do not fall into a category of speech unprotected by the First Amendment, which strictly limits public universities like KSU from punishing protected expression.

The entire statement can be read on Michelle Malkin’s twitter feed:

 

The stakes are high in 2020, as free speech hangs in the balance thanks to relentless pressure from the PC Left and Big Tech.

If the Right loses this battle, all other rights —right to bear arms all the way to the freedom of association — will be ripped to shreds.

The good news is that KSU announced that it will not expel McNeil over his Tweet. But the fight is far from over.

Anyone who values American freedoms should stand in solidarity with McNeil.
