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.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
