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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
