HERE WE GO-> Virginia Dem Leadership Defends Gov. Ralph Northam’s Blackface, KKK Yearbook Photo
Virginia Democrat leadership is already coming out in defense of Governor Ralph Northam’s racist yearbook photo.
A picture from Democrat Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook surfaced on Friday showing two men, one in a KKK hood and robe and one in ‘blackface’ on the same page as Northam.
The photo was first published by Big League Politics on Friday and later confirmed by other outlets such as WaPo and The Virginian Pilot.
One half of the page shows Ralph Northam wearing a suit jacket and a tie, a photo of him in a cowboy hat and boots and another of him leaning up against a convertible.
It is unclear who the two men in costume are, however Eastern Virginia Medical School allowed students to personally choose photos for their yearbook page.
Democrats ALWAYS defend their own no matter what.
A Ralph Northam ally, Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax) defended the governor saying we don’t need to examine something that occurred 30 years ago — unless your name is Brett Kavanaugh of course!
Via The Washington Post:
“His whole life has been about exactly the opposite and that’s what you need to examine, not something that occurred 30 years ago,” said Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (D-Fairfax). “While it’s in very poor taste, I would think no one in the General Assembly who would like their college conduct examined. I would hate to have to go back and examine my two years in the Army. Trust me. I was 18 years old and I was a handful, OK? His life since then has been anything but. It’s been a life of helping people, and many times for free.”
Jack Wilson, the Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia said if it is indeed Northam in the photo, he needs to resign.
“Racism has no place in Virginia,” Wilson said in a statement. “These pictures are wholly inappropriate. If Governor Northam appeared in blackface or dressed in a KKK robe, he should resign immediately.”
Why are we just now finding out about Governor Ralph Northam’s 1984 yearbook with pictures of him presumably in blackface or a KKK robe?
Why did the Republican oppo researchers drop the ball during the Virginia gubernatorial election in 2017?
Ralph Northam’s yearbook would have been perfect fodder to attack the Democrat candidate with especially in Virginia.
