A Democratic Virginia State Senator has been charged with two felonies for her role in an attack on a Confederate statue in Portsmouth, Virginia in June. Louise Lucas was charged with conspiring to commit a felony, and felony injury to a public monument in excess of $1,000, according to Portsmouth Police Chief Angela Greene.

Lucas, who has served in the Virginia Legislature since 1992, is the Senate’s president pro tempore. Videos on her own Facebook page show her present at a June monument destruction attempt, in which one vandal was seriously injured when a falling Confederate statue struck him on the head.

The monument memorializes Confederate soldiers, and does not depict any specific historical figure.

Police Chief Greene is calling upon everyone charged with monument destruction to turn themselves in to the police, immediately. Lucas had previously attacked Greene for her efforts to crack down on statue and monument destruction, claiming she “abdicated her responsibility to maintain peace and failed to uphold the law.

Controversial Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is lining up behind the cultural vandal Democrat, seeking a free pass for the legislator to attack historical monuments. Northam tweeted that “It’s deeply troubling that on the verge of Virginia passing long-overdue police reform, the first Black woman to serve as our [president] pro tempore is suddenly facing highly unusual charges… [Sen. Lucas], I look forward to seeing you in Richmond tomorrow — so we can get to work.

Virginia Democrats appear wholly united in defense of vandalism operations. The Virginia Constitution gives legislators immunity from criminal prosecution during legislative sessions, but this immunity does not apply to felony crimes.

You don’t have to like the monuments to Confederate statues, or whatever you think they represent. But destroying public statues commemorating the heritage of the southern United States is a revisionist act of historical extremism.

Leftist Michael Moore Chides Joe Biden for Pursuing “White Racist Redneck Votes in Michigan”

Moore isn’t happy Biden is going for Republican voters.

Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore blasted Democratic nominee for pursuing what he termed as “white racist redneck votes in Michigan in a Saturday tweet.

Moore took offense at Biden’s decision to accept the endorsement of NeverTrump RINO former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. Snyder, who left office as one of the most unpopular governors in the history of the state, oversaw the response to the Flint water crisis.

Moore saw it as offensive that Biden would tout Snyder’s endorsement on the basis of the water scandal, in which tens of thousands of mostly black Flint residents were provided with contaminated and dangerous tap water on the part of the state.

It’s of some political importance to point out that Joe Biden isn’t a socialist. He’s a neoliberal corporate Democrat with a long track record of policy positions that are distinct from the track record of socialists such as Bernie Sanders. The former Vice President is planning on coasting to victory through making inroads with senior and suburban affluent voters, but his reluctance to pay homage to young left-wing voters who formed a considerable part of the 2008 Obama coalition could spell his November downfall.

Moore’s description of supposed “white racist redneck voters” in Michigan doesn’t exactly spell much in support of new voter outreach on the part of Democrats, suggesting that the seemingly malleable Democrat coalition might stretch too much and figuratively explode.
