In the wake of Northam, some truly hollow men

The introductory stanza from the great poem "The Hollow Men" by T.S Eliot has no better description to capture the actions of all the men involved in the events of the last few days in the great Commonwealth of Virginia in the wake of the Ralph Northam revelations:

 

We are the hollow men

We are the stuffed men

Leaning together

Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!

 

We see the true core beliefs of these people in the wake of Northam's medical school blackface and Ku Klux Klan photo scandal, and his even more scandalous statement defending infanticide.

 

As a proud Virginia High School graduate and current constituent of Virginia's Democratic Governor Ralph Northam, I look on at what this Virginia Military Institute graduate and former doctor has said and done and can only say it's simply stupid and awful. But it seems to go beyond that, representing a historic sea change in the political landscape.

 

First, the governor advocated the actual murder of a baby, positioning the Democratic Party itself into that stance. That was evident from the spot-on critique of the matter from Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican:

 

"This is morally repugnant," Sasse said. "In just a few years pro-abortion zealots went from 'safe, legal, and rare' to 'keep the newborns comfortable while the doctor debates infanticide.' I don't care what party you're from — if you can't say that it's wrong to leave babies to die after birth, get the hell out of public office."

Yet the governor's position on baby murder only drew the normal political theater of "blah, blah, blah" -- words of criticism without any call to resign. With no call to leave office, it was the expected normal political theater of shallow and meaningless political posturing by his fellow elected Virginia Democrats, which include Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, and Commonwealth Attorney General Mark Herring.

 

And then the photos of his medical school yearbook page came out.

 

Suddenly, everything changed.

Except that they have no shame and it is never their fault.

This, exactly!

 

Which is worse, the blackface photo or infanticide? The photo has taken all the air out of the room and his disgusting radio interview explaining how he was all in for “4th trimester abortions” has been swept under the rug now.

 

Mayhaps this is the real reason this photo was pulled out from someone’s (a democrat for sure) manilla folder of dirty tricks? Hmmmm???? Because the Honorable Governor ripped the mask off their pretense of “safe, legal but rare” abortions and the powers that be in the leftist command aren’t quite ready for that yet?
