Virginia in Play: Trump is More Popular Than Racist Ralph Northam

Northam continues to hide out as his poll numbers plummet.

The embattled governor of Virginia, who has been caught in a racism scandal since Big League Politics exposed him for wearing blackface or a KKK outfit in college, is now less popular among voters in his state than President Donald J. Trump.

“[Christopher Newport University’s Rachel] Bitecofer, who led the polling and serves as assistant director at the center, found that Northam’s approval rating is at 40 percent, down 19 points from December. That’s worse than President Donald Trump, whose approval rating in Virginia is at 44 percent, according to the survey,” according to The Virginian-Pilot. 

The eye-popping 19-point drop comes as scandal has rocked Virginia’s three top elected officials. Aside from Northam’s racism scandal, his deputy, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, has been accused of sexual assault by two women. Both men have refused to resign, despite calls from the electorate and fellow politicians.

As noted by The Virginian-Pilot, the mainstream press has all but dropped coverage of the scandals, choosing instead to focus on Russian “collusion” conspiracy theories.

“It also helps that more than one in five respondents said they hadn’t heard any recent news about Northam,” the report said.

Northam has shied away from the public eye since the scandal broke. Big League Politics reported last week:

Democrat Virginia governor Ralph Northam did not appear at the census meeting at NOVA Community College in Alexandria, as he was scheduled to do on the morning of April 1.

Northam is still keeping a low profile after Big League Politics published his medical school “blackface/KKK” yearbook photo, which exposed Northam’s racist past. President Donald Trump has put Virginia in play for his campaign in the 2020 election.

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.
