Everywhere. All of Virginia, including his Democratic colleagues have asked him to resign.

The pattern is Dems are a lot more willing to call out their own - Repubs either bunker up and defend, attack another front, ignore, or crawl under rocks. Hive mind.

He is a politician, he just says that photo does not reflect the person that he is today. Politicians are so good at politico-speak.

Here is my issue, "Political Correctness" rearing its ugly head once again. He was a kid and this happened 35 years ago. Kavanaugh was 40 years ago. Kevin hart was 9 years ago Has the Governor done good things while in office? Is this offense worse than being an accused sexual harasser? Worse than using a Homophobic slur? As bad as wearing a MAGA hat and smirking at a Native American?

Where does the madness stop?

The guy that says he can grab women by the pu$$y in addition to affairs with a stripper and a Playboy Bunny and who lives with racist undertones is still in office today.

Yeah, he gone it would look like? Always told my kids, some screw ups and bad decisions, You can bounce back from and get a 2nd chance, but some You can't ? Not that anyone including myself always listens. He may not be that guy we see there, however, at that point in time he chose to do what he did, BIGV, what do You want outrage for, how about positive discussion and action, this subject shouldn't have sides, but sadly it does. I noticed when Franken was revealed he wasn't around long, I expect the same here, at the same time I noticed our beloved and respected President was busy trying to fiercely push into office a mall stalking pedophile?............Peace........joe

Wait, now I'm confused, should we be outraged or not?

Maybe the problem is considering dressing as a Klansman merely "politically incorrect". We are responsible for our own actions and elected officials are held to a higher standard than comedians.

Meanwhile, if you don't care about the opinions of celebrities such as Kevin Hart, don't use them as an equivalency for politicians. You can't have it both ways.

I don't believe Kevin Hart's opinion has anything to do with this. He stepped away from a prestigious gig because of some he said/did a long time ago. My "where is the outrage" question was asked before I was aware he had resigned, directed at members of this board.

Had he not resigned would members here have called for it?

The original post seemed to be asking where is the outrage from Democrats when one of their ranks gets targeted for past indiscretion.

However the OP then clarifies as where is the outrage over political correctness.

Thread point too obscure, or I am too dense. Or both.

I'm really not sure why you're asking about Kevin Hart. The Oscars and comedy are a little different than being Governor.

Meanwhile, Governor Northam now says he believes it is not him in the photo, even though he already admitted it was. Which is a really abrupt about-face.

Ok, I think I get it. Yes the libs and free cons here are not afraid to kick any politicians @ss, regardless of party. We are free thinkers. I have ripped on Gore and Obama for their corporate cronyism bullsh!t many times.

The only locksteppers here are the trumpettes.

I'm not following the train of thought either. Apparently previously dressing as a KKK member has better job security in the public sector than protesting does in the private sector.

Same thing would happen if they dug up a photo of him ripped on acid covered in mud in a sex pile at Woodstock. Oh well. Just gotta hope it was worth it.

Which character in the photo was purported to be him?

Different things shock different people. A KKK outfit is scary as hell to a lot of people, while to others it is ho-hum. If they found a 40 year old photo of him in tight bondage leathers sashaying with a rainbow flag leading a gay pride parade with his flabby pale pimply @ss hanging out, a whole other set of folks would cry foul. And the people defending him and saying it was an expired nonissue would be called PC, no?

So PC must mean anything not white, conservative, heterosexual, and christian, is my takeaway.

Whaddyagonna do.

None. First, he didn't recall. Now, he says he wasn't in the photo. Having spoken to some classmates, the yearbook that year was screwed up.

He DOES recall dressing as Michael Jackson with hat & glove for a dance contest in San Antonio for which he used a little black shoe polish on his cheeks because "well, that stuff is hard to come off. Have you ever tried it?"

You don't get it. If the Democrats didn't call him out, the right would scream hypocrisy. If the Democrats do call him out, the right screams PC run amok.

I just look at it as two different sets of values. Democrats expect a certain set of values these days (and quite honestly they didn't in the past). The Republicans, which in the past were big on family values, aren't anymore. As with many things, tables have turned. There was a time the evangelicals would have demonized someone like Donald Trump based on his lack or morals, but the party of family values is gone and replaced by the anti-PC party who's top priority is your protect their own at any cost. But here we are, and the Republican party is as powerful as ever, so I guess if keeping power is what counts, it has worked well for them.

Below is a Q & A with Jerry Falwell Jr that more than backs up your post.

Let me just say this for the record, "I think the far right Christian belief system is nuts. Nothing could be more out of my reach.

Probably so, but in reality, just the other side of the same coin. The left screams "Racism, Bigotry & Homophobia" towards any view that does not fit their agenda.

I think this thread proves once and for all what a complete jackass BIGV truly is. Has there ever been a more juvenile misguided biased idiotic thread? What on Earth is his message?

Nah. He's got a point about the kneejerk stuff. Yet somehow this thread sort of cancelled itself out and I don't know whether I should be outraged. I also never heard of this or Kevin Hart so I'm probably just a total subversive because I am completely out of the media loop, not feeding any of it . . . and I honestly don't give a flying f*ck.

Nice rainbow by Capitol Butte there btw
