Blackface in Virginia: Did the Republicans sit on the evidence during the campaign?

That was the first question that had occurred to me when the story broke.

When the scandal broke about Virginian Governor Infanticide’s pictures in blackface (leaked by a horrified former fellow medical student, we are told), one huge question was, why didn’t his Republican opponent Ed Gillespie’s team find the pictures first? Why did it take someone freaked out by Democrat’s now-open espousal of ending the lives of survivors of very late abortions to finally uncover what many must have known about him (and, it turns out, other Virginia Democrats)? \

Well, from streiff at Redstate:

Having observed a boat-load of GOP campaigns over the years, I find nothing at all implausible about the Gillespie campaign having the material and deciding not to use it. From what I’ve seen of Vichy Republicans in action at fairly close range, I’d actually be more shocked if it was used than finding it wasn’t. In fact, one of the reasons Kessler gives as to why the story might be false is actually one of the reasons why Gillespie might have decided not to use it …

So finding a GOP campaign acting against its own interests for the sake of being a noble loser isn’t new. I would submit the 2008 McCain campaign had as its objective to be a gracious loser to the first viable black presidential candidate. I’ve never really been convinced Mitt Romney wanted anything more than to lose cleanly in 2012.

As to the denials, if you’d had the images and chosen not to use them because you wanted to take the high road and protect “muh principles,” knowing what you know today, would you admit to not using them? My guess is that you would deny knowing anything about them and take the hit for being merely incompetent. More.

Reality check: You will only understand why Trump won if you take into account the fact that—very unusually for a Republican—he actually wanted to win. It will be telling indeed if the American (and Canadian) conservative electorate continue to sponsor and fund candidates that enjoy posing as graceful losers. They don’t have to.

Democratic congresswoman to teenage pro-Trump pundit: ‘You’re right to be afraid of us’


During the State of the Union address Tuesday, 16-year-old CJ Pearson on Twitter referred to U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez of New York as “the woman next to” fellow Democratic U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying Velazquez “keeps trying to look the other way” while Ocasio-Cortez “has been talking this entire speech.”


House Democrats Held The First Climate Change Hearings In Six Years. It Was A Mess

“Climate change is a civil rights issue,” Reverend Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, told lawmakers on the committee on Wednesday morning. Lennox also referred to tackling global warming as the “lunch counter moment for the 21st century.”

“When I think of climate change, I don’t think in terms of green. I think in terms of black and brown,” California Rep. Nanette Barragán said during Energy and Commerce hearing.


Before Northam, Democrats Didn’t Just Dress Up as Klansmen

When Virginia Governor Ralph Northam endorsed fourth-trimester abortions last week, nobody called for his resignation. His decision 35 years ago to masquerade, either in blackface or as a Klansman — which malefaction against taste Northam engaged in seems unclear — offends modern sensibilities to such a degree that his party, his predecessor, and nearly every presidential wannabe says he should step down. This says something more about us than him.

Democrats did not always exhibit a zero-tolerance policy toward dressing up in white sheets. They once, at least in some parts of the country, demanded it from candidates.


Chuck Schumer Smirks as Trump Describes How Dems Want to ‘Execute’ Newborn Babies

Decked out in white to virtue-signal their #Resistance to Trump, Democratic women sat emotionless as Trump described a horrific Virginia legislative proposal that would allow children to be killed after they are born, and a law recently passed in New York that allows for partial-birth abortion. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) simply smirked as the president described the monstrous procedures.


WOW: Dems Demand Return Of Obama’s Project That Forced Taxpayers To Foot The Bill For Illegals

According to The Washington Examiner, the failed Obama project used taxpayer money to help keep illegal alien families out of detention centers and gave them healthcare, transportation, housing, and legal assistance to help them claim asylum in the U.S.


Huckabee: President Trump’s Speech Tonight

Tonight, President Trump will go to the House of Representatives (his invitation got delayed in the mail by a week) to give his State of the Union Address. Advance word is that he will attempt to reach out to work with Democrats, which is no surprise since one of the major reasons he was elected was his reputation as a deal-maker. But voters didn’t reckon on just how around-the-bend nutzo his opponents would be.


Trump, in Super Bowl Sunday interview, slams ‘very rigid’ Pelosi, reveals troops’ mission in Iraq

In a wide-ranging, three-part interview set to broadcast Sunday, President Trump revealed that U.S. troops will remain in Iraq to “watch Iran,” and charged that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is “very bad for our country” and “doesn’t mind human trafficking” at the border, according to an advance transcript of his remarks.
