Because GOP Won’t Oppose PC Feeding Frenzies, VA Blackface Scandal Turning Into Victory for Left

President Donald Trump usually has good political instincts, but he didn’t get it when it comes to Virginia’s latest political “scandal.”

“African-Americans are very angry at the double standard on full display in Virginia,” President Trump tweeted on Sunday, after Governor Ralph Northam refused to resign after being busted for appearing in blackface in a yearbook photo. In fact, however, a new poll shows almost 60 percent of black Virginians want Northam to remain in office. [Nearly 60 percent of Virginia’s African-Americans want Gov. Northam to remain in office: poll, by Louis Casiano, Fox News, February 10, 2019] The only people who want him to resign are whites. And Northam is using the “scandal” as an opportunity to double down on far-left politics.

In contrast to naïve whites, Virginia’s black voters get it—Governor Northam is now entirely dependent on their goodwill and this gives them great power. Ludicrously, Northam is embarking on a kind of one-man “struggle session,” reading the likes of Ta-Nehisi Coates and promising to take destroy Virginia’s Confederate monuments.
