I'm more repulsed that he's okay with murdering an infant in his care...

I still say that social media will be the downfall of this country, you can share stuff and drive a narrative in minutes like never before. You can sway public opinion with no facts and if you are wrong no one cares tomorrow the damage is done, no one cares about the truth or the correction.
Change the term "social Media" to "mass media" in your post and either way you are still 100% correct.

At each point in our life we are the summation package of all experiences, education, and personal elements.

If an individual appears to have reformed from some inappropriate opinion, then he should be given further opportunity to demonstrate what he has evolved into. If that proves not good or not appropriate, then he should be ousted, or not re-elected.

However, if he appears to not have reformed from some inappropriate opinion, then he has been uncovered as inappropriate for his position. He should resign or, if there is a mechanism, should be ousted through legal procedure.

Using the Virginia governor as an example: IMO, after observing him recently and assembling those images with his visible past, this VA governor appears to be a consistent package of arrogance, elitism, dislike for certain types of people, and a schmuck.

I don't disagree but he did wave the racist flag towards his opponent while he himself had skeletons. Had he not done that then maybe. I have a problem with the hypocrisy

You probably don't follow Virginia politics, but like many Democrats, his hypocrisy is difficult to bear.

Like against his previous opponent:

http://twitter.com/RalphNortham/stat...-gop-racist%2F
My racist Governor Coonman (D) chose to go all in with the race card. His supporters were mostly coastal libs, unions and Hollywood. They swamped the state with accusations of his opponents alleged racism.

So no. Sorry but this is just Karma bitch slapping him. **** him and **** his supporters.

Depends on the "what" and the "who".

This is the guy who plays identity politics. We are just applying his own medicine. As others pointed out, he and his allies were so quick to paint Gillespie as racist.

We are just applying his own conduct and standards to himself.

How many people that claim to be offended are actually just trying to be offended on behalf of someone else just to prove how ‘kind’ they are? Like they think they are just doing a public service or something?

apologize to an individual, never to a faceless group or a collective as it simply empowers the group to oppress and extort liberty from others later

Depends if you are White or Not White.

No really, that's what it boils down to.

Once a racist, always a racist.

Northam has lost the moral authority to lead minorities in VA, disinfranchising those persons.

He must go immediately.
