Now Democrat Attorney General Mark Herring of Virginia Has Admitted to Blackface

Sounds to me like Virginia Democrats have a racism problem. First Governor Ralph Northam donned either a KKK outfit or slathered his face with makeup for a photo, then later he admitted to being in blackface as Michael Jackson. Now the Attorney General Mark Herring, third in line for the governorship, has admitted to blackface.

 

Here’s the money shot:

“In 1980, when I was a 19-year-old undergraduate in college, some friends suggested we attend a party dressed like rappers we listened to at the time, like Kurtis Blow, and perform a song. It sounds ridiculous even now writing it. But because of our ignorance and glib attitudes — and because we did not have an appreciation for the experiences and perspectives of others — we dressed up and put on wigs and brown makeup.”

Herring then says it was a one-time thing and it was 40 years ago, therefore doesn’t reflect who he is today. He will not confirm if he will resign, only that there needs to be “honest conversations” about his future in government.

Now, had the Democrats not spent all summer tearing down Brett Kavanaugh for an event which they say happened in HIGH SCHOOL, we could all be somewhat sympathetic to young people making terrible choices. Alas, we’re living in a post-Kavanaugh world. A world where Democrats analyzed every comma, word, or errant apostrophe in Kavanaugh’s yearbook, diaries, and personal calendar from when he was in HIGH SCHOOL in a clear attempt to destroy his life. So boof that.

Sorry, I haven’t any sympathy. Democrats wrote the rules. Democrats set the precedent that alleged incidents with no proof at all were admissible in a politician or judge’s career. There’s evidence with Northam. Herring has admitted to blackface. Going by the rules as set by Democrats, Northam and Herring must resign. Now.

The GOP didn’t make these rules. Conservatives in media didn’t make these rules. Democrats did. Live by the sword…

I watched the press conference where he talks about dressing as Michael Jackson and it's fucking hilarious.

I don't think he should resign.  Just move on.  We all did, do, or will do something we regret later in life.

Gov Northam should "absolutely" resign. We all saw the picture next to the guy in KKK robes. There's still no confirmation of who Northam was in that photo, but even if he was the black guy...it's still fucked. Im not "incensed" by just blackface. But when you put the larger context of the event to the blackface, then things become murky. Had Northam dressed in blackface but not next to some KKK cosplayer, than I wouldn't expect him to resign. Ertel, the republican, he wore blackface and put "katrina victim" on the back of the shirt....that's not acceptable in way shape or form. This aren't arbitrary "rules" some party came up with, we all know what's fucked up and what's not...or maybe "so so" fucked. 

This attn general is just admitting to dressing in blackface with a bunch of friends and rapping a song in the confines of their own place, probably either drunk or high or both....not expecting a resignation there unless there's more to it and he's just copping to some of it in an effort to obfuscate something else. Im really upset with democrats for not immediately calling for Northams resignation. There's no context to that photo that makes it ok. In fact, any "context" that could be added would probably just start to make it worse which is probably exactly why everybody stfu about it.
