I never witnessed a self-immolation broadcast live. Well, until yesterday when Virginia Governor Ralph Northam torched himself in an ill-advised press conference.
Clearly Aborto-Northam believes in terminating his credibility even until the moment of birth.
What a week he’s had.
First, he says the quiet part out loud and admits in bloodless detail just how far Democrats are willing to go in the name of “Women’s Reproductive Choice.”
Then, when sentient human beings reacted in horror, Northam feigned righteous indignation.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the pediatric neurologist/baby killer, his medical school yearbook revealed an even darker side.
Well, “darker” in the shoe-polish sense of the term anyway. Personally I think a willingness to murder babies after they’re born is as dark as it gets.
The “man in blackface with a guy in a Klan costume” was finally enough to get Democrats who have no problem with murdering babies to scream for Northam’s head.
So Ralph Northam releases a mea culpa — apologizing for dressing up that way and assuring us that’s not who he is.
Clearly Governor Baby Killer thought groveling for forgiveness would stop the calls for him to resign.
Democrats don’t believe in forgiveness.
The chorus of resignation demands continued unfettered despite Northam’s apology.
And that’s why he shifted gears.
As I said yesterday, Northam announced that he would be holding a press conference later Saturday afternoon and hinting that he was not one of the people in the photo (despite the fact that he apologized for appearing in the photo just twelve hours earlier).
And that press conference kicked the Northam dumpster fire into a full-on self-immolation.
Northam (who again just the night before gave a heartfelt apology for posing in that picture), begged Virginians to trust his word that he isn’t in that picture.
But that wasn’t even the worst of it.
Let me sum up what Northam had to say:
“No, I’m not in that picture. I never saw that picture before in my life and I didn’t choose the pictures that showed up on my page. Not that I haven’t put on shoe polish and pretended to be black before. Because I have – like when I did my Michael Jackson impersonation. And I probably would have done it more often, but by golly! Have you ever tried washing shoe polish off your face? It ain’t easy! Wanna see me moonwalk?”
It was like a terrible car accident. No matter how much you don’t want to watch, you just can’t turn away.
Thank heaven his wife had the presence of mind to keep him from moonwalking.
At least there’s one Northam with the sense God gave a goat.
Honestly, I don’t know how Governor Shoe-Polish-Infanticide-Thriller Jolson could have made that press conference any worse.
Actually, yeah. I do.
Ralph Northam didn’t just end his political future; he set it on fire live in front of a national audience.
And the fact that he refuses to resign actually gives me a happy.
As I said yesterday morning, the Democrats want him gone for two reasons: 1) He hurts their “all Republicans are racists” narrative. And B) Northam is on record admitting that the Democrats want “abortion” to include the murdering of born babies.
And by refusing to resign, we can hang Post-Birth Abortion/Shoe Polish Northam around the Democrat Party’s neck like a smoldering millstone.
And that could spell trouble for the Democrats’ effort to turn Virginia solidly blue.
But the damage isn’t limited just to Virginia.
Because the fact is, even pro-choice Democrat voters are squeamish at the idea of flat-out infanticide.
Which is exactly why the Democrats are, in one voice, demanding Governor Self-Immolation hit the bricks. He exposed the Truth. And for the Democrat Party, the Truth is the last thing they want out there.
I think John Nolte over at Breitbart is right. Northam (not to mention the Democrat Party) is banking on the news media burying this scandal as quickly and quietly as possible.
And perhaps they’ll oblige him and scrub it from the national news. But between his extreme views on infanticide and his admitted history of shoe polish use, I’m thinking Virginians won’t let it go any time soon.
