The Democratic Party in The USSA suffers from a serious problem. It suffers from its own belief in universal suffrage. You get more of what you tolerate and you get who you tolerate. Eventually, these people rise inexorably to the top of your heap. Justin Fairfax, Democratic Party LT Governor in Virginia, is a prime example.
News from the Virginia Democratic Party is that they’re “evaluating” Justin Fairfax and the allegation of sexual assault. I’ll bet they are, just the same way they’re “evaluating” how the Virginia Democratic Party went from resurgent to ridiculous over the space of five days. Now that Scripps professor Vanessa Tyson has gone public with her allegation of sexual assault against the lieutenant governor, the party has no choice but to start “evaluating” the claim and Fairfax’s shelf life in the #MeToo era.
And wow did she go public.
To quote Ron Burgundy from “The Anchorman”, “Boy, that escalated quickly.” It gets worse for the Dems.
Virginia sank deeper into political turmoil Wednesday when another top Democrat — Attorney General Mark Herring — admitted putting on blackface in the 1980s, when he was a college student. With Gov. Ralph Northam’s career in peril over a racist photo in his 1984 medical school yearbook, Herring issued a statement saying he wore brown makeup and a wig in 1980 to look like a rapper during a party as a 19-year-old at the University of Virginia.
So how did they get such an All-Star Team in office in The Great State of Virginia? Democracy is running its natural course. It is sold as a proxy for combat. It is becoming more and more like actual combat. The VA Dems were like an actual army doing anything that they could to win. This led them to run whoever they thought would win, regardless of how bad they are as human beings. Nothing quite tattoos Excremental Human Being on your forehead like raping a rape-crisis center employee who was previously sexually violated as an eight-year-old girl. It’s like LT Gov. Fairfax just won the dirtbag lotto jackpot.
Why are nothing human being occupying the three highest offices in The State of Virginia? Somebody had to vote for them. It couldn’t have been a vote based on principle. These people stand for nothing beyond governing on behalf of their political patrons, drunken buffoonery and libidinous satisfaction. It’s genuine relief that Virginia was saved from the !RACIST! woman-beating Alt-Right from Charlottesville.
But there was more at work here than just effective propaganda against hapless GOP candidate/nebbish Ed Gillespie. The partisans favoring this ticket had to have known these guys weren’t exactly the guys Machiavelli wished for when he wrote The Prince. They were, however, three pretty slick and convincing career politicians who would do what they were paid to do.
So inevitably, failure is met with betrayal. The jackals turn on the weak amongst their herd. And meanwhile, the evil aided and abetted by the morally senescent threatens to devour basic decency.
Aborted babies are being used in macabre experiments in the US that involve grafting dead fetus parts onto mice which are then used to test drugs. Documents seen by Sun Online outline procedures that involve cutting out glands and livers of unborn children and then fusing them onto lab rodents.
So obviously all three of these jack-legs get fired and leave office to go into the wilderness to live out their remaining days in exile. Oh, wait… They all have dirt on eachother, and enough of them are compromised so that The VA State Government may not even have legally clear instructions on who they legitimately could make governor. If you take down one or two, it would be like the guy who absent-mindedly knocked over the first domino. These guys are looking so bad right now that arresting corrupt politicians would leave VA without a functional state government. Am I the only one halfway-seriously wondering if that would have a downside?
It reminds me of another democracy rotting its way into the depths of demotic decline. In Brazil, their version of the FBI went renegade against the deep state and launched Operation Lavo Jatto. It was a sting operation that merged into the Brazilian Version of a RICO case. And then it kept finding more and more bad people. Then it came to an impasse because there was nobody left with clean hands.
There was no political party or organization that didn’t deserve an entire suite of rooms in the Rio De Janiero Gubbermint Hotel. They couldn’t arrest everybody who sucked, so they ended up not fixing much of anything via The Brazilian Legal System. There was one scapegoat sent into the woods, but none of the sinners on the public payroll were washed as white as snow. To put it nicely.
Eventually, as democracy increasingly becomes a race to the bottom, all the competitors get worse and worse. Like a herd of zebras, it becomes a blur: impossible to tell the reprobates apart. The lions then don’t know which individual one to take apart and eat. It becomes int he interest of the political class to recruit more and more of the reprobates. In democracy, the trash pandas win. Ralph Northam is no more or less trashy than the others.
