The Left’s Values

Governor Ralph Northam’s politics were defensible by the Democrats as long as the controversy was limited to the nuances of late-term abortion versus infanticide. But when an old picture of him in blackface standing next to someone in a Klan outfit appeared, even Planned Parenthood has turned on him and demanded his resignation.

So the Left does have a line that shouldn’t be crossed, but it’s unclear what defines it. I suppose a Neo-Marxist analysis would say that the power struggles defining the controversies control. Black v. white supremacy falls along lines that might divide voters and relate to political power, whereas unborn children don’t vote. Is it really something that crass?

  1. They can turn on him only because the Lieutenant Governor is also a Democrat; were the Lieutenant Governor a Republican, Mr Northam’s photo would have been a youthful indiscretion.

  2. If, as he now maintains today, he is NEITHER the person in black face nor the person in the KKK robes, I have two questions:

    1. Why did he apologize yesterday? (This is a rhetorical question)
    2. Why did he never complain about this photograph to the staff of the yearbook?
