After Northam embarrassed the party and promoted infanticide earlier this week, a heaven sent yearbook image has ‘surfaced’ providing the left with all the ammunition they need for a complete character assassination.
His democrat stock has dropped so far and so fast that CNN did a report where they labeled him a Republican.
During a broadcast of Anderson Cooper 360, which showed a video of Northam addressing the inflammatory yearbook photo in a video posted to his Twitter account, they placed an “R” beside his name.
Although previously congratulated on his election victory, Northam has now become a pariah. Everyone from Kamala Harris to Julian Castro have jumped on the bandwagon calling for his resignation after the image of possibly Northam dressed in either KKK regalia or Blackface was reported yesterday.
Northam has issued a statement apologizing for the yearbook photo.
However, many people wonder why Northam’s history of bigotry never bothered the left until this week.
In the yearbook, Northam is known by the nickname ‘coonman.’ In a video tweet, Northam said:
“My fellow Virginians, earlier today I released a statement apologizing for behavior in my past, that falls far short of the standards you set for me,” Northam claimed.

“The Virginian-Pilot released a page from Northam’s 1984 medical school yearbook Friday, showing one man dressed in a Ku Klux Klan hood and another in blackface on the half of the yearbook page set aside for Northam. Big League Politics first reported on the photo Friday.”
Of course, why this image wasn’t ‘reported’ before presents more questions.
Northam has refused to resign.
“I have spent the last year as your governor fighting for a Virginia that works better for all people. I am committed to continuing that fight for the remainder of my term,” he claimed.
Of course, that’s not stopping democrats from crucifying him, despite having earlier embraced him.
“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,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), tweeted.
Previously, Harris congratulated Northam.

Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro also couldn’t resist the call for public shaming:
“It doesn’t matter if he is a Republican or a Democrat. This behavior was racist and unconscionable. Governor Northam should resign,” Castro said.
The NAACP also joined the mob:
“Black face in any manner is always racist and never okay. No matter the party affiliation, we can not stand for such behavior, which is why the NAACP is calling for the resignation of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam,” said NAACP president Derrick Johnson.
“The Root politics editor and MSNBC contributor Dr. Jason Johnson of Morgan State University said Friday during an interview on the network he wasn’t sure that Northam would be able to survive a scandal of this magnitude.”
“I don’t know that Northam will be able to survive this kind of scandal because this probably won’t be the only thing that comes up,” Johnson said.
During a debate for Virginia Governor, Northam refused to shake hands with his GOP opponent, who is black. Jackson uses his outstretched hand to tap Northam on the arm and then re-extends his hand almost into Northam’s lap, but Northam won’t touch him.
In another image with Obama, it looks as if Northam won’t actually grasp his hand, but keeps his open to prevent it.
His racist behavior never bother democrats until he created the abortion scandal this week.
Here’s a lesson for all liberal hopefuls. Unless you toe the line and protect the image of the party (many people argue that’s slavery and socialism), you will be sacrificed for the good of the left.
