An old Chinese curse “May you get what you wish for” can be reinterpreted in English to “What goes around comes around”. The implication is the very long knives one marched in the night with may come in the twilight to your door. These are not reasonable times where today’s hunters are tomorrows prey.
Virginia Governor Ralph Northam began the week fending off charges that he supports state sanctioned infanticide(murder). In a on camera interview Governor Northam, a former pediatric neurologist turned Progressive political hack, appeared to defend the ancient Chinese practice while attempting to explain away testimony by Virginia Delegate Kathy Tran (D-Fairfax County) in support of her proposed bill that would allow abortion up to the moment of birth, but would also allow for the medical execution of the infant outside the womb in some instances. It would be no surprise if Tran and supporters threw the race card given, she is only proposing to legalize a cultural practice. If one really wanted to understand the historical truth, one would finally understand what the Northern Virginia Confederates were fighting to prevent. Northam said, “So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mothers.” Daddy shut up and leave the room, we’ll make sure the tot has a pillow.
Facing much justified criticism from the political Right, the medical doctor turned Gubernator elaborated further in the days that followed. In response to the question whether he regretted either the substance or the form of his explanation of Madam. Tran’s testimony, the man once charged with the Hippocratic Oath not to “play at God” clicked his heels “No I don’t. I’m a physician. I’m also the governor. But when I’m asked questions a lot of the times it is put in the context of being a physician, again realizing how we approach, how we manage patients, how we offer advice and counseling, so no I don’t have any regrets.” Doctor-Governor Mengele went on to say that he regrets only “that those comments have been mischaracterized.”
Mischaracterized, taken out of context, misinterpreted that always seems to be the cover when one’s unaltered words are in the public domain. There was not a single Democrat politician who challenged Governor Northam’s explanation of Tran’s proposed bill, while no one, Republican or Democrat, called for his resignation. Unfortunately, or fortunately for Governor God, his come around week was not finished depending on how one viewed the events. Photos from Governor Northam’s medical school yearbook in 1984 mysteriously surfaced as in the case of Dylan Roof appearing to show the future governor either in blackface or wearing the notorious garb of the Ku Klux Klan. The political tsunami from the Right was swift and calls for his immediate resignation resounded across the land. Some of these calls came from various Leftist notables in his own party. 2020 presidential desirable Senator Kamala Harris (D-California) tweeted “Leaders are called to a higher standard, and the stain of racism should have no place in the halls of government. The Governor of Virginia should step aside so the public can heal and move forward together.” Another wannabe president, Senator Elizabeth “Squaw” Warren (D-Massachusetts), tweeted “These racist images are deeply disturbing. Hatred and discrimination have no place in our country and must not be tolerated, especially from our leaders — Republican or Democrat. Northam must resign.” Julito Castro, former Housing and Urban Development Secretary under President Obama who is considering a run at the presidency, tweeted “It doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat. This behavior was racist and unconscionable. Governor Northam should resign.” Other politicos and members of the babbling classes, Left and Right, took part in the verbal stoning.
What is most indicative of these unreasonable times in which we live are the responses these two incidents called forth. In the first, involving Governor Northam’s defense of legalized baby killing, only politicians and pundits on the Right offered resistance to such an evil proposal, but duly noted did not include calls for the governor’s resignation. In the second, involving a yearbook photograph from thirty-five years ago depicting the governor wearing either blackface or a Klan outfit at a party of some kind, politicians and pundits on the Right and Left immediately joined hands in denunciation and called for his resignation. Many on the Right commented on the rank hypocrisy of a man who would don so called offensive costumes repeatedly denouncing his political opponent as a “racist”, as Governor Northam shamelessly did in Virginia’s gubernatorial campaign just last fall defeating race pandering neo-con Ed Gillespie. Speaking of what goes around comes around. In what was then a quasi- reasonable world in 1984 the Northam yearbook photos would be considered sophomoric humor of the time. Go on to You Tube and watch the SNL skits 70’s and 80’s. Heavens to Martin Luther how could NBC ever have allowed such offensiveness to be aired?
However, before the Northam affair came the outrageous phony charges of sexual misconduct against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh – charges which were based, in part, upon defining the meaning of immature commentary found in Justice Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook. It is clear where our ruling master’s priorities lie. In 2019 America, legalized infanticide, pure murder of infants, garners a mere yawn. As it were, among our ruling elite in both parties and the Cultural Marxists media they are expanding the definitions of hate think utilizing their contemporary lenses. Even worse than black face is those who have attended Antebellum balls wearing period dress, sombreros or any other dress of a favored ethic group. Employers are encouraged to peruse year books, event publications and programs to find these past now contemporary acts of racism and hate. May you get what you wish for.
