Carlson: VA Dems Not Calling for Northam Resignation Want Blackface, Klan Robes ‘Safe, Legal and Rare’
On Friday’s edition of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Tucker reacts to the trends toward infanticide in the recent Orwellian abortion laws and proposed/passed by Progressives Democrats, especially by Virginia governor, Ralph Norton. Pay particular attention to the sarcasm he uses. The full transcript is below the video.
As you saw on tape, Northam came out in favor of infanticide this week. Not exaggerating. Northam said it slowly and clearly. You just saw it. Then he reiterated his views, just in case he wasn’t clear the first time. In a statement today, Northam explained that abortion at any stage is a positive good, and this is worth listening to this carefully, because, quote: “Reproductive freedom leads to economic freedom.”
In other words, abortion is virtuous, because it makes women efficient employees, better and more dutiful servants of Northam’s donors. They can work longer hours without worrying about anybody but their bosses. Northam is in favor of that, so are the democrats that are serving their own masters in the private equity class.
Well the press covered this of course, but not in the way you’ve imagined. So to the reporters of the Washington Post, the real crime here, was Republicans complaining about Ralph Northam. Quote: “Abortion bill draws GOP outrage against Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, Democratic legislators.” That’s a headline. Republicans whine too much, infanticide, not a big deal.
And then all of that changed you heard on today, the first day of Black History Month, a site called Big League Politics uncovered the photo Trace just told us about. What is so interesting about it, is that Ralph Northam spent a lot of his last campaign calling his opponent racist, again and again and again. The closing of that campaign was non-ending flurries of ads putting up the Republican opponent up against pictures of what happened at Charlottesville, the atrocities of Charlottesville.
There is no evidence his opponent was racist, but Northam said it a lot. And yet strikingly, Northam’s opponent never took pictures of himself in blackface or in a Klan robe. So there is some irony in this story. As of right now, a number of prominent Democrats, Kamala Harris among them, have called for Northam’s resignation over this. But there are many in his party, particularly in Virginia, who are standing by him.
Those Democrats personally oppose blackface and Klan robes, as a matter of conscience, but they don’t want them relegated to some black alley. They want blackface and Klan robes to be safe, legal and rare, a private matter between a politician and his donors. For now, Governor Northam will be kept comfortable, you can be certain of that. He will be resuscitated if that is what his party desires.
