First they came for the governor of Virginia...

The pixels were barely dry on the governor's apology when the Richmond Times-Dispatch posted at 7 p.m. on Friday, "Editorial: Northam must resign."

Goodness. Do these people suffer ADHD or what?

Without bothering to take a deep cleansing breath, the newspaper's editorial plunged into demanding his head without thinking.

Forget the 24 hour rule.

These bozos don't even have a 24-second rule.

The editorial began, "Gov. Ralph Northam has served his nation and commonwealth with admirable distinction and dedication. So it gives us no pleasure to see his rapid fall from grace. He is by all accounts a decent and considerate man. And yet, his poor judgment has undermined his standing with Virginians in ways that we believe will permanently impair his ability to act as an effective governor. He should resign and return to his profession as a physician, with the thanks of those he has served as a state senator, lieutenant governor, and for the past year, governor."

His poor judgment was 35 years ago.

The picture in his medical school yearbook was so dumb that I am surprised they published it.

Certainly a 25-year-old medical student should have sense enough not to put on blackface or a Klansman's hood (we are not really sure which one in the photo he is).

But the logic of the editorial's premise is laughable.

"He is by all accounts a decent and considerate man," the newspaper said.

If he is "a decent and considerate man," why did they demand his resignation?

The answer is everyone else on the left was. The governor of Virginia had to be sacrificed for the greater good. The greater good in this case being the killing of babies upon birth in the name of the great god Abortionius.

The American Left is insane with power. They go after anyone at anytime for anything. There are no rules but the mob rule.

Consider the frame up of a high school kid by some communist Fake Vietnam Veteran Indian. Within hours people were calling in death threats, his bishop and school denounced him, and people were lobbying colleges to ban applicants from his school.

This is nutty. This is the law of the jungle in the land of the free. Electronic lynchings are everywhere, with the strange fruit dangling on Twitter and Facebook.

Conservatives delight in the governor's pain because they are making Democrats play by Democrat rules for once.

But the game is wrong. And this event will be used to pressure out of office the next conservative with a skeleton in his closet.

Supporting this injustice feeds the beast. This game is called You're Next.

Let's stop it.

Look, we know President Donald John Trump isn't Hitler, but a growing portion of the American population is acting as if they were Germans in 1932.

Don't think for a moment that Kamala Harris or Cory Booker or all the other Democrats are above exploiting that.

  1. Remember Sen Robert Bird? He was an actual Klansman who wore the robes for real not just for some stupid picture in a yearbook. Yet he was the darling of the Democrat Party and the "Dean of the Senate" even after he used the n-word multiple times in a Prime Time TV interview.

    2. What so many forgot was that an eye for an eye is a limitation. If someone takes your eye you cannot take their life, but if someone takes the life of your near kin, you can settle for something less than taking their life.

  5. This was predictable. No problem with infanticide, but put on a costume at a party and you're worse than Hillary. The narrative and PC control is what matters more than anything else.

    This is why Republicans need to quit playing the game. The Dems know wherein their greatest source of power lies. Enabling them in this is cowardly. But we can count on the cucks to chime right in.

    1. The problem with your train of thought is that the Ds are not going to quit their side of the issue. And the media will never call them out of not quitting. So what you are proposing is unilateral disarmament. In theory, I agree with you. In practice, it seems like just another loss for conservatives.

  7. I played Jiminey Cricket in a second grade play and wore green food coloring on my face and hands. I have picture proof. I cannot hold a public job now as I was offensive to Martians.

    Agree this has to stop. How far back will people dig? What was acceptable years ago should not be fodder for the mob. What was distasteful (but legal) years ago should not be either.

    I hope that Northam continues to be publicly embarrassed for this as he is a promoter of infanticide. I hope he stays in office. I hope the mob’s double standards are exposed and done in forever. Our next Supreme Court nominee would approve.

  8. "Conservatives delight in the governor's pain because they are making Democrats play by Democrat rules for once. But the game is wrong."

    Don, I don't claim to have all or even any of the answers. But this feels like the Cold War nuclear disarmament unilateralists' argument to me.

    We owe our survival in the past to steely-eyed missile men who were prepared to stare down those who would see everything we stand for destroyed.

    Just as well for our future survival that they didn't hold with reproductive termination.

    Because the future belongs to those who show up for it.

    If conservatives reproduce and go hard for their ideals, and leftists abort and attack their own, guess who the future belongs to.

    God preserve the right.

    1. Well said, Dave. Vote for Pro-Life candidates. Give money, other donations (my wife made baby quilts), or volunteer hours to Pro-Life organizations. We were long time supporters of the Shady Grove Pregnancy Center In Rockville. Above all, trust God and turn it over to him. He’s got this.

    3. When you are the 'target' of a bully, you must first get his attention. HIS, not the crowd standing around, so a Rabbit punch to the solarplexus is usually a good starting point. [as that kid in the movie said to the bully "Just YOU Ace!!!] As long as they have the support of the crowd it makes it difficult to start a 'dialog'.

  9. I ought be disgusted, but sadly I find myself rather amused. Currently Ralph Northam finds the idea of killing born babies to a laudable idea. No problem for the left. However some thirty five years ago Northam held views akin to one Sheets Byrd, which may or may not reflect his current views For this social faux pas Northam is deemed unfit for office.


    Translation, to the democrats dead babies don't vote. However blacks do.

  10. While I appreciate and understand the sentiment embodied in "First they came for..." we conservatives need to ratchet up the pressure and hound him from office. Not for the blackface/Klan stupidity. For the infanticide comment as well as the pisspoor adult judgement shown in that photo. It's not too much to have SOME standards for public officials.

  11. If they were honest, they would get rid of the Democrat brand & leave behind the past of Jefferson Davis, Gov. George Wallace, and Bull Connor & rebrand. If they were honest, they wouldn't be lefties, though.

  12. The only way to make them stop the game of "you're next" is to make them follow it widely & often. They will apply it to everyone else. Make their dispossessed our co-belligerents or at least sit on the side.

    If a tool works, they will continue to use it until it breaks.

  14. Scary to say the least. These people will destroy their own if there is any hint that it will cause them damage or a loss of any power. This has nothing to do with him being some sort of racist. The democrat party is really the psychopath party.

  15. shove the same crap right down their habitats.
    That'll do nicely.
    Dems are nothing but playground bullies.They come for you especially when they know you are weak. If you don't fight back they descend on you like a pack of rabid wolves.
    But when you stand your ground and punch them back hard in the face, they are stunned. You punch and you keep going until you draw blood and they go down.
    They will think twice about pulling that trick again because they know you will hit back and its not so fun anymore.
    Once we all do what the Donald did when the Bush tape was strategically aired, they'll stop using that tactic. I laughed out loud when I saw the presser Trump called the next day with women former Prez Horndog Clinton had assaulted and raped. That bastard and his harpy wife never have recovered.

  27. He is NOT decent, nor honorable, but he DOES support killing human fetal babies, because the mother feels it might be inconvenient.

    The "You're Next" game is lousy, but Reps have been suffering from for years -- it won't stop until Dems demand that it stop.

    Dems won't demand that it stop until they start getting hurt by it more than it hurts Reps. A lot more. Which is tough since the Dem media is quite willing to avoid talking about Dem racism, but is willing to invent Rep racism.

    It's fair to say it's a dumb, wrong, even anti-American game. But it's clearly a game the Dems are playing, and winning at. Only Rep losers are willing to "not play". Today, you can't "not play", like Nick Sandmann was "not playing" -- yet, the Dems have him as one of the stars of the week.

    Dems need to get sued, and lose, and lose big enough, to start wanting the game to end. Reps can't end the game, tho more lawsuits against Dems that are won are mostly likely to end the game sooner.
