The Democratic party is looking to win the upcoming Virginia gubernatorial race by whipping black voters into a frenzy over fantastic conspiracies and demagoguery about events that went down in Charlottesville back in August.
With longtime Clinton crime family capo Terry McAuliffe on his way out due to being term-limited, it is up to another term-limited race-baiter to make the case for a heavy African-American turnout on November 7th.
None other than Barack Obama has been stumping to promote Democrat Ralph Northam who is currently the Lt. Governor as well as black candidate Justin Fairfax, a black man running to replace Northam at Lt. Governor.
Northam is the candidate who drew criticism after his campaign literature had been doctored to remove – or whitewash – his African-American running mate from roughly one thousand flyers that were to have been distributed in Northern Virginia.
Some would see that ploy as being racist but when it comes down to whipping up hatred among the rank and file blacks using the bad-assed bogeyman Donald Trump, and especially if Barry himself is stumping for Northam, all is forgiven.
Democrats are seeking a massive black turnout to keep the state in their column after McAuliffe moves on, likely to prepare for his 2020 presidential bid.

Democrats are looking to mobilize black voters for Virginia’s crucial gubernatorial race, hoping to boost turnout with a core constituency that has repeatedly helped turn the state blue in the past.
The governor’s race is one of the biggest electoral prizes on the ballot this year. With turnout expected to be significantly lower than last year’s presidential race, both parties are scrambling to make sure their base heads to the polls.
Democrats are working to engage black voters, who made up 20 percent of the electorate in the 2013 governor’s race and helped elect Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D). McAuliffe, who is term-limited out of office, won 90 percent of black voters in 2013, a similar total to Obama’s numbers in his 2012 reelection.
The Democrats’ focus on getting black voters to the polls was on display Thursday night, when Obama returned to the campaign trail for the first time since leaving office.
Obama was joined by Democratic gubernatorial nominee Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, who is running for lieutenant governor and state Attorney General Mark Herring. If the Democratic ticket wins, Fairfax would be the first African-American elected statewide in more than two decades.
A crowd of 7,500 people packed the Greater Richmond Convention Center to hear speeches from Obama, as well as Reps. Bobby Scott and Donald McEachin, two African-American lawmakers who represent Virginia districts with large concentrations of black voters.
While he didn’t mention President Trump or Republican nominee Ed Gillespie by name, Obama condemned the current political environment and addressed the fatal clashes over the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville.
Obama said that “the most painful parts of history” shouldn’t be used as a way “to score political points.”
But that is all that Mr. Obama – and the rest of the Democrats – are about, scoring political points off of fomenting racial resentment. Don’t forget that McAuliffe is the one who moved heaven and earth to restore voting rights for tens of thousands of felons to make sure that Hillary won the state in 2016.
It is disgusting, divisive and dangerous but nobody calls them on their race-baiting unless it’s the voters.
