Ralph Northam (b. 1959) is the extreme pro-abort who is the Democrat Governor of Virginia elected in 2017. He has defended infanticide. Northam previously served as Lt. Governor to Clinton fundraiser Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
Allegations of racism
In early February 2019, it was discovered that Northam included a photo on his medical yearbook page of two people posing together, one wearing blackface and another dressed as a KKK member, although Northam implausibly denied that he was one of the two after he admitted to being one of them. Northam tried to excuse his conduct by claiming he dressed up for a Michael Jackson contest, although the clothing in the photograph was well out of style in the 1980s.
In response, racist Democrats then tried to prevent Northam's resignation by exploiting sexual assault allegations against the African American Lt. Governor. Then, the Attorney General who would be third in line of succession revealed that he, too, had also appeared in blackface at a college party in the 1980s.
In October 2017, the Northam campaign issued flyers omitting Northam's running-mate for Lieutenant Governor, Justin Fairfax, an African American, while the Democrat nominee for Attorney General and white man, Mark Herring, was included on the flyer.
A Northam campaign ad was released which slandered his Republican opponent, Ed Gillespie, and his supporters, in which a pickup truck with a bumper sticker for Gillespie and a Confederate flag appeared chasing down minority children and cornering them in an alley – one of the children in the ad then wakes up, revealing the scene to have been a nightmare. Northam defended the ad via projection, claiming Gillespie's own ads "have promoted fearmongering, hatred, bigotry, racial divisiveness."
The ad was pulled the following day after the terrorist attack in New York City, in which a winner of the Diversity Immigrant Visa lottery killed eight people and seriously injured eleven by running them over with a pickup truck. An ISIS flag and a document indicating allegiance to the terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) were found in the truck.
