Nah. He's got a point about the kneejerk stuff.


What point? Please explain. It started with “where’s the outrage?” Then he goes on to say that there shouldn’t be outrage. Then he brings up Kevin Hart in comparison, followed by “I don't believe Kevin Hart's opinion has anything to do with this.” Then it turned into whether anyone specifically on this board is outraged. And ended with:

quote:
The left screams "Racism, Bigotry & Homophobia" towards any view that does not fit their agenda.


And you can honestly say that he had a point? You really think the liberals BIGV reads about online represents all Liberals? Sell me on why this thread was intelligent. Or is it possible this is simply the drivel of a low IQ prejudice idiot?

Whoa, a little harsh, dude. Remember, this is a music website where we fellow music fans can respectfully disagree. No one is running for office here.

Northam should resign, no other acceptable outcome.

From my perspective, his constant finger-pointing and prejudice against a political affiliation and minorities is far far worse, and if he is free to spew it, then I will certainly feel free to treat it accordingly.

This would only be true if I posted something and bailed on those responding to me and asking me direct questions. Go back and look at all the threads....one of us ignores questions, and one of us responds to everyone. Pot meet kettle my a$$. I’m the one here answering any question from anyone.....directly.

How can anyone tell for sure who is in that KKK outfit? Or was Northam the one in blackface?

His nickname back in those days in question.

"It has also emerged that a yearbook from Virginia Military Institute listed “Coonman” as a nickname for Northam. Asked if he thought Northam was racist, McAuliffe said he could not answer the question"

Resignation reportedly forthcoming.

This whole thing on Northam was started by the right - the photo was unearthed and released by Big League Politics, a website founded by former employees of the far-right Breitbart News. This was an action by conservatives - so maybe the reaction against racism, bigotry, and homophobia is becoming bipartisan. Of course this is a transparent right wing propaganda coup to get the Democrats to eat each other alive. Either way, doesn't matter, regardless of ulterior motive, if racism, bigotry, and homophobia are now ammunition for both sides, this is progress.

It is unfortunate that a good person and dedicated public servant like Northam has to be the fall guy, but perhaps this is a good thing. Democrats are showing that they have the integrity to criticize their own. If Northam resigns it will be honorable.

How many Republicans have ever gracefully resigned when racial and sexual indiscretions came to light? None?

Don't yearbooks stop after college?

I can't imagine what kind of circumstances led to such a picture no matter who is in it. This isn't a freshman frat pic. It's medical school where presumably adult future MDs aren't partying in costumes on campus. Geez.

It would be nice if we could measure someone on their words, actions (or in-actions) and accomplishments (or lack thereof) now as opposed to something they did or didn't do 30+ years ago.

His confusing damage control makes it worse though.

I think he, along with Kavanaugh, are being judged by their actions 30 years ago because of the very specific public office job they are seeking. I’d agree 100% if they were applying for any other job, but when it involves serving the public and making laws, there’s no room for it, especially if there are other candidates who didn’t have those lapses of judgment.

So now the Lt. Gov, who would become gov should Wannabe Michael Jackson step down, denied old charges of sexual assault that were published on an online site at about 3AM this morning.

The Washington Post investigated in 2018 before the Lt. Gov took office & didn't find the allegations credible enough to even make a story.

I'm surprised we have ANYONE willing to run for elected office at any level given the dirt that's dug up or made up against people of all races, genders, and parties.

BTW, if someone is a victim of sexual assault, TELL THE COPS not the news.

Well at least if Northam resigns we will be spared the president coming up with a nickname for him like "Sambo" or "Shaft". You know that is the next thing that will happen, just wait.

I knew Virginia was backward, but the gov admits to blackface, the Lt Gov has sexual assault allegations, & now the Attorney General (3rd in line) admits to wearing blackface in 1980 at a college party where he was dressed as a rapper. So, who's left? Sounds like there's no one in the state who hasn't worn blackface, a confederate uniform, or KKK hood or waved a confederate flag.

Would those be the shoes Northam wore when moonwalking like MJ?

Exactlly wrong. You wish it. That is exactly what the right wing stealth media partisans were hoping for, to try to paint the Left into a double standard hypocrisy corner - but the fact is Democrats immediately and overwhelmingly demanded his resignation. Even here in WP libs have not been defending the guy.

Every news source is saying this, from CNN to Fox. Here is a Breitbart article supporting this, since you probably trust Breitbart:

No one is defending Northam. IMO, VA is moving slowly because they have to treat the AG the same way - you know, the white UVA student who was a black face rapper - so they lose 2 of the top 3 members of gov't. Not much of an excuse, they both should've been gone as soon as they admitted it, but there's more than the usual calculus.

The faster the Lt Gov is in & a new AG appointed, the more settled the gov't & the party become.

This thing deepens. A GOP Senator in Va added to the starting lineup.

Sounds like there's not a man in the state leg who hasn't appeared in blackface, a confederate uniform, a KKK outfit, or waving a confederate flag. This is the state where Charlottesville happened - over a confederate statue.

Maybe it's time to have an all woman legislature.

And remember that Emperor Don said about C'ville - there are very fine people on both sides when referring to white nationalists.
