As you already know, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is under major pressure to resign after he was found with a blackface/kkk photo in his yearbook.
This, after Northam made very disturbing comments about abortion earlier last week.
Over the weekend Ted Cruz blasted the media for how they covered Northam:
Media fixation w/ blackface (“was he dressed as Michael Jackson?”) obscures the more damning point: anybody who voluntarily chooses to celebrate the evil & bigoted KKK is unfit for public office. Media should be asking: did you select that picture to represent what you believe?— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) February 2, 2019
And why does media relentlessly shill for Dems? They won’t cover Northam’s defense of infanticide, but they’ll ask if he can moonwalk.... https://t.co/sMkMrBjMzY— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) February 2, 2019
The Michael Jackson/moonwalking thing was ridiculous. The point was, as Cruz put it, that at the very least Northam celebrated this evil.
David Axelrod was thinking along the same lines:
I don’t understand. If Northam WASN’T in the photo, why was it on HIS yearbook page? Did he select it? If so, isn’t that just as bad?https://t.co/AzsNnVC2aI

But I’m with Cruz on the bigger point he made. The media didn’t give a flip about the infanticide comments said by Northam. In fact some in the media tried to defend him, as we pointed out. The racism was bad, but the infanticide comments were horrible and the media basically shrugged.
But that’s generally the way it is with the MSM, because they are Democrats. If these last two years of them going HARD after Trump has taught us anything, it’s that they are more biased against Republicans than they’ve ever been.
