Horror of infanticide takes a back seat to racial insensitivity
We’ve reached a bizarre point in our history when an objectionable medical school yearbook photo in which the subject’s face is obscured, is deemed more offensive than condoning infanticide.
Comparing the vileness of aborting a human baby up until the moment it draws its first independent breath to a 35-year-old photo taken in another time and context and which the subject alternately admitted and then denied it was him, has become the rallying cry for demanding Democrat Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam resign.
Incredibly, Northam, who condones abortions up until birth, is a medical doctor specializing in pediatric neurology. Did we mention, he’s also a Democrat? Somehow that fact was obscured, as CNN in its zeal to besmirch a Republican, misidentified Northam as a member of the GOP.
But the revelation of the clearly offensive photo deemed to be Gov. Northam is what has brought the swiftest condemnation. Showing more spine for holding onto his job than for standing against infanticide, he has so far dug in his heels, refusing to acquiesce to the calls to step down, though the list of Democrat officials demanding his resignation continues to grow.
National Democrats including 2020 presidential wannabes Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Julian Castro and Kamala Harris have called for Northam to resign. They are joined by former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, under whom Northam served as Lieutenant Governor, the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Governors Association, former Vice President Joe Biden and even Hillary Clinton, who has made a career of lying — have all jumped on the bandwagon. The NAACP and MoveOn, a Soros-sponsored leftist mega-fundraising group have united behind the calls for Northam’s resignation. U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine along with U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott, all Virginia Democrats, joined in the voices raised against Northam.
Despite his resistance, it’s a good bet Northam’s more astute wife, Pam, is already packing in anticipation of vacating the Governor’s Executive Mansion.
