So, in the midst of pushing for a bill that would allow late-term abortion if the pregnancy would cause mental distress to the mother, Governor Northam discussed an example of in-labor abortion. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that's what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.” Governor Northam probably misspoke but has instead taken the stance that his statements have been mischaracterized because he was talking about abortions for babies with deformities.

Today it surfaces that his medical school yearbook has a picture of him and another person in blackface and klan robe.

I don’t particularly think he should resign because of this. We need a blackface amnesty cutoff at some point. But it should be a consistent standard.

Why? For something he did that was racist 34 years ago while he was in college? Is he a racist now? We’ve had senators like Robert Byrd whose a former klansman and Strom Thurmond who was a presidential candidate for the segregationist party. They renounced their views, Northam has apologized. The only reason I would see for him to resign is for consistency with the calls made regarding other people.

Byrd and Thurmond have been dead at a decade or so?? America has rapidly changed since then. Those guys couldn't get elected dog catcher in this current culture. Byrd never really apologized and "Sperm" Thurmond only apologized AFTER the media revealed he fathered a black child with his black maid.

Are you out of your mind? That’s West Virginia and South Carolina you’re talking about. If backwater Iowa can elect Steve King, you don’t think West Virginia would still be voting Robert Byrd for senate? I’m hopeful that Jesse Helms couldn’t get elected now a days, and outrage culture is amplified by the internet and fringe media, but I don’t have any trouble believing Thurmond or Byrd could be re-elected now a days.

Interesting that Northam hasn't said whether he was the black face or the KKK hat.

This other similar incident happened just last week in Florida and the new secretary of state resigned.

Misogynists aren't liberal. You should consider joining the GOP. Or better yet, just get over your misogyny. Basically all Democrats are saying he should resign. I'm pretty sure he will. I have no idea how I'm venomous for agreeing with my party on this, but you do you.

You are attacking a guy for stuff he did what like 40 years ago? Get over it. Did he dress up in blackface recently? No. I didn’t think so.

Why not have the court prosecute people, even posthumously, for acts that were legal during their lifetimes but are illegal now?

Reply

I'm not attacking him at all. Like I said, one of the reasons he should resign is consistency. A Republican resigned last week for the same behavior.

Reply
gladigotaphdinstead (Feb 1, 2019 - 9:08 pm)

Consistency is the most feeble minded reason you could possibly give. That's tantamount to "if your friend jumped off the bridge, then you should do." And if consistency mattered at all (it DOES NOT) then Brett Kavanaugh would not be on SCOTUS.

The only thing I actually do like about the guy is that he had the intestinal fortitude to stare down the SJW mob and not back down.

If Democrats call for this type of behavior to have consequences when GOP does it, it has to have consequences when Democrats do it. This is obvious.

Has no consequences when GOP does it. Look who our president is. Ffs.

He'll probably resign this weekend. His Black Lt. Governor then takes over.

The GOP is changing a little on this, so it does have consequences. They stripped Steve King of his committee assignments. The GOP secretary of state in Florida resigned just last week for the same stuff.

But you’re calling for it. Rather than taking a reasonable stance and saying “let’s look at what he has done since college and judge whether or not he’s a complete racist or whether these are some jokes that look really bad in the present but weren’t totally outrageous in the early 80s”

It’s like we have this wing of progressives that want prison justice reform and people to be given a second chance, unless they’re white and the offense was exhibiting racist or sexist behavior that doesn’t even meet the level of a crime.

Reply
frida2 (Feb 2, 2019 - 11:06 am)

Well, it doesn't really matter what I call for, but thanks for making such a big deal about my opinions. I clearly take up space in your head. Almost every declared Democratic candidate, and some undeclared potential candidates (including Amy Klobuchar) have called on him to resign. So, my view here is just inline with the Democrats. I think you should switch to the GOP. I think you would feel safer in that party.

I would be a little concerned something happens to the Lt Gov and then someone from the Republican legislature takes over.( I am not sure of the line of succession, but you may recall the Repubs won the legislature through heavily gerrymandered districts and then after a Dem wave it came down to a tied seat and then a coin flip.)

I would say probably not resign because it was a long time ago, but geez. If they can show a pattern or anything of racism then probably, but for one thing probably not.

I don't think catwoman333 is a Democrat and I actually think she's probably posting from St. Petersburg. She claims to be a Democrat but she viciously hates on every Democrat except Nancy Pelosi. While I certainly love Nancy, there is something really weird about someone who hates every Democrat except Nancy. When she used to post under her old username (employmentlawyer) she claimed to be a Bernie supporter, but now she even trashes him. Weird.

Obviously the creator of this post isn't a Democrat. It's like the Russians aren't trying very hard anymore.

@frida2, your comment should be edited: "I don't think." Because obviously you don't.

1. Where in that post do I "claim to be a Democrat"?? Where is your proof that I "hate EVERY Democrat"?? For the record, I'm a registered Independent and have voted Dem, Repub., and 3P in the past, and I have also posted numerous unflattering comments about Trump and his actions. That list you cited only a handful of potentially 20 people rumored to be considering a WH bid. You have NO IDEA of my views of any others considering a bid in 2020.

2. "Viciously hates??" "weird"?? ROFL. Classic childish, overwrought, bombastic rhetoric straight from Trump Tweet Land. So I guess that means that anyone who has a different opinion here is automatically deemed a "vicious hater" or "weird". Hilarious to see a Dem adopt the Trump Playbook tactics.

Speaking of St. Pete's, honey, you appear to be one of the biggest trolls on this website, never missing an oppty to launch into a lame personal attack against anyone here who does not share your rigid demands for blind, partisan Dem. Party allegiance to any particular candidate or position.

It is indeed laughably ironic to see a rabidly partisan Dem. accuse others of precisely the SAME "sin" the Dems usually fault in Republicans: namely INTOLERANCE for "diversity"--of viewpoints and candidate choices. Too many Dems--and also many Repubs--have become humorless, shrill, intolerant, extremist pains in the butt who adamantly oppose the slightest compromise or bipartisanship. No wonder MILLIONS of Americans are so disgusted by organized parties, politics....

Some of us aren't blind, Kool-Aid slurping, cult followers of ANY party, candidate, or ideology merely because party leadership puts up the "Applause!!!" sign. Nor do I subscribe to the politically suicidal strategy of rushing to the coronation/endorsement of a flawed or weak candidate with a lot of baggage that may sink her/him in the general election. Nor do I believe in "identity" politics to the exclusion of assessing views on other issues. So what??? Maybe I just don't want to see Trump win ANOTHER 4 years in the WH solely because the party stupidly again chooses to pander a narrow constituency instead of trying to woo MOST Americans. Or maybe I--like most people--just enjoy laughing at the absurdity of politicians and politics in general. So what?? If you find it SOOOO OFFENSIVE that someone else jokes or disagrees with you, just pop a Xanax and chill.

a lot of so called Dems on this site professed to hate Hillary yet she carried no more baggage than any other male president ever has save for Obama but his baggage was being black which clearly contributed to Trump getting elected, an idiot who carried more baggage than anyone ever has BUT he brought the cockroaches out of the darkness / woodwork which CLEARLY delineated what this country was / is all about and that's a good thing --

now we know we live in a pretend democracy, capitalism is an inside joke to the politicians that know what it really is, our foreign policy has the steadfastness / resolve of a scarecrow at the mercy of whatever wind blows through -- it's a country that has never let go of its inbred misogyny, bigotry, white nationalism and racism, the Christian nation thing has been exposed for the phony hypocritical joke that it always was, everyone that gave their lives to defend our way of life i.e. democracy / capitalism died working on "maggie's farm" and as tools of the state's hidden / stealth agenda most of which is about serving up the military industrial complex and its never ceasing "feeding at the trough" at the expense of everything else this country needs to serve the people -- look to the politicians that serve that beast and you'll find the real enemies of the people but they need the ignorant stupid "we need a cult" idiots to give them electoral sway

nobody in the Dem field has impressed themselves on me yet but that's because I know Hillary is still head and shoulders above all of them

Here's the thread where catwoman says Nancy should run for president. If you can't see she's a Russian troll see a doctor quick. Look, the Russians are good, but we don't have to be stupid.

do you see me on there (I did start that idea when she cut Trump's golden cahunas off on the govt shutdown / no SOTU speech thing)? but hey if she's that good then it's pretty clear why Trumpacola is POTUS -- what's the purpose of posting this on my Donny Jr "fugitive" thread, I don't get it

Trump is ALREADY "off the rails" and has been for most of his life.

@Frida2, while I guess I should be flattered that you spend so much time obsessing about my posts, YOU are the classic definition of troll, personally attacking people who--GASP!!!--don't happen to share your views of the world. Yawn....

Libs give the guy a pass on infantcide, but want him to resign over a 1984 Halloween costume. I will never fully understand how libs think.

I don't think he should resign.

This guy seemed to have been a bit of a clownish personality, well liked by everybody. Black people who went to school with him seemed to go out of their way to defend him. I think his nickname -- coonman -- actually speaks to his affinity for black people and black culture. He loved Michael Jackson. He grew up in a predominately black town. He was on his high school basketball team. He seemed to be a Rex Chapman type. So in this picture, he was the guy in blackface. He was coonman, the blackest white guy you know. Coonman was so cool and laid back that he was not above having a beer with a klansman in a klan suit and then jetting off to San Antonio to don blackface, a glove, and a hat, and when a dancing contest by moonwalking across the stage. Even at the press conference Saturday, coonman seemed willing to do try out his moonwalk if he could just find space in the crowded room.

All in all, I think this picture is pretty funny. The fact that he had it put in the yearbook shows that he had no guilty intent. People act like times have changed so much. 1984 was not that different from today, Orwelllian allusions aside. In the eighties, Campanis was fired for saying black people lacked necessities to manage baseball teams, Howard Cosell was fired for calling a black Redskins player a little monkey, Dinkins was elected mayor of NYC, etc. In 1984, people knew that the Klan was a fringe group, publicly supported by nobody.

Black people need to lighten up. This is one reason why there is so much resentment towards negroes in the body politic -- black people are too quick to jump on a moral high horse about stuff like this. Let the man finish out his term and find some real issue to worry about.

if he does resign, I guarantee a republican will win the next gubernatorial race in Virginia.

@bp, "guarantee"?? Seriously??? LOL

Dude, if Northam resigns, he will be succeeded by Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax who is black, young, and very popular. My $$ says Fairfax will be heavily favored and likely win a full term.

Fairfax is alright, but he's too establishment. He's no coonman....

Fairfax has now been accused of sexual assault. He claims the encounter was consensual. I feel bad for him and remain a firm believer in innocent until proven guilty. Hopefully he learns from this and realizes the Democrats pushing for believe all victims is a bad policy.

“I feel bad for him and remain a firm believer in innocent until proven guilty.”

The Democrats created this environment. Its their problem now.
