"Very rarely does a politician leave me surprised or speechless. But this week, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam advocated for the murder of newly born infants, and then managed to add yet another dimension to his resume of evil with a photo that reveals him participating in seriously racist behavior. And yet he refuses to resign," said Project 21 member Rich Holt. "This Bond-villain level governor will, of course, be given a pass by the radical left - which he represents - because, when a liberal acts racist or wants to commit murder, it's apparently allowed."
"The racist blackface picture that has emerged from Governor Ralph Northam's medical school yearbook, coupled with his recent comments supporting de facto infanticide, prove he has a long history of poor moral judgement," said Project 21 member Christopher Arps. "The people of Virginia should decide if this governor still has their confidence and the moral authority to lead them."
"This is truly appalling, but not surprising, given that his political forefathers created the Ku Klux Klan," said Project 21 member Gregory Parker. "I find it interesting that liberals continue to look for racist ghosts among conservatives, such as claiming a Christian boy with a smile is racist, yet fail to look inward. It's all too hypocritical."
"Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's 1984 medical school yearbook picture, with him either in blackface or a KKK robe, captures a mindset that - as a southerner who was a high school senior at the time - I know all too well," said Project 21 member Nadra Enzi. "Will his apology suffice - especially among the blacks, elite liberals and moderate voters who aren't inclined to accept mea culpas from conservatives? This foretells that a painful introspection lies ahead, where the avowed 'anti-racist' coalition must choose either partisanship or principle. And choose they must."
