The Democrats’ New Puritanism Will Lead To Their Undoing

Kevin D. Williamson, New York Post

Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam either did or did not appear either in blackface or in Ku Klux Klan robes 34 years ago in a yearbook photograph while he was a medical student. The picture appears with his name, he apparently once was jocularly known as “Coonman” and he certainly appeared in blackface on a different occasion as part of a Michael Jackson costume worn in a dance contest that — well, let’s just quote the governor himself here: “I actually won the contest because I had learned to do the moonwalk.”

Northam must go, as a matter of character. On that we have the word of such figures as Joe Biden, a plagiarist who once cited his ability to navigate the linguistic challenges of buying coffee at a 7-Eleven as evidence of his good relations with the Indian immigrant community; Terry McAuliffe, a former fixer for Bill Clinton; former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder, who once used a government airplane to pay a private visit to a former softcore porn actress he appointed as a university regent; Sen. Bernie Sanders, author of bizarre rape-fantasy political tracts; Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Cherokee impersonator; and Hillary Rodham Clinton, chief tactician of the “bimbo eruption” unit all those years ago.

If Northam goes, the governorship passes to fellow Democrat, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who now faces impeachment as two women have come forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct — at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and at Duke University in 2000.

The Democrats, hot off insisting that mere accusations of misconduct — as a high-school student — were sufficient to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court, are thereby put in a pickle. They might turn to the second in line, Attorney General Mark R. Herring, also a Democrat — and also someone who recently acknowledged wearing blackface at a college party. That would bring the Dems to the third in line, House Speaker Kirk Cox, who insists he’s never donned the racist makeup. He is also a Republican.

The Fed vs. the Middle Class

With interest rates flattened [by the Federal Reserve], government zeroes out the future. Abandoned were 80 percent of private defined-benefit pension plans. Public plans faced a similar evisceration in the future. With no acknowledgement, the U.S. government had casually dispossessed the American middle class of its retirement assets and pushed millions of Americans into acute dependency on government programs. ... Government dependency negated the American dream.
