The Democrat governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, is in a situation of controversy after a picture resurfaced from his medical school yearbook page showing two men, one dressed as a Klan member and another in blackface. Although it has not been confirmed which of the men is Northam’s office admitted that he is in the picture, saying:
“Earlier today, a website published a photograph of me from my 1984 medical school yearbook in a costume that is clearly racist and offensive.”
Now, which of the men is Northam, we have yet to find out, but there is something to be said about this photo, and that is the racist and Darwinist roots of the Democrat party and how this history has not ended but can be seen in the Democrats’ vicious support for infanticide (known mostly as abortion). This is reflected in Northam’s recent comments supporting infanticide for deformed children even after birth. In a radio interview, Northam said he would support that third-trimester abortions “in cases where there may be severe deformities or there may be a fetus that’s not viable.” He also talked about committing infanticide even after birth:
“When we talk about third-trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physicians, more than one physician, by the way. And it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that’s non-viable. So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
Trump was correct to point out:
Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.” This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late term abortion.

So, in a very diplomatic way, he is saying that a child, even after birth, remaining alive depends on whether or not “that’s what the mother and the family” desire. The spirit of eugenics still continues on in the Democrat party. Lets make a parallel with history. Let us begin first by briefly discussing one of the most famous of the Democrat presidents, Woodrow Wilson. In 1902, the well known Black intellect and activist, Booker T. Washington, was invited to Wilson’s installment as president of Princeton. But, Washington was prohibited from being housed with the faculty, as the other guests were allowed to do. Nor was the African American thinker allowed to attend the official dinners. When he was asked about the idea of an American Black studying at the university, Wilson said: “while there is nothing in the law of the University to prevent a negro’s entering, the whole temper and tradition of the place are such that no negro has ever applied for admission, and… [it] seems unlikely that the question will ever assume a practical form”.
In 1912, Black Americans showed support for Wilson. Until this time, Blacks generally supported the Republican party, the party of Lincoln and the party that strived to free Black slaves. But upon this time there was a break from this tradition. Wilson also marketed himself to gain the favor of American Blacks. During his campaign, Wilson met with an influential bishop of the African American Methodist Church and told him that Blacks could rely on him for “fair dealing,” saying that “my earnest wish [is] to see justice done them in every matter, and merely grudging justice, but justice executed with liberality and cordial good feeling”. He also promised to be vocal against the lynchings of Blacks.
A magazine called Crisis, which was ran by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (founded by Margaret Sanger supporter, W.E.B. Dubois), exhorted Blacks to vote for Wilson, stating that “it is better to elect Woodrow Wilson President of the United States and prove once for all if the Democrat party dares to be Democratic when it comes to black men.” (See Emmerson, 1913, pp. 157-58)
In July of 1919, the month in which the Great War ended, the United States would suffer the most violent outbreak of racial bloodshed since the Civil War. In 25 American cities, attacks against Blacks and migrants erupted in horrific mob violence. In Chicago, thirty eight people were murdered and one thousand African American families were left homeless. A few blocks away from the White House entire Black neighborhoods were set to flames and fifteen people were shot, burned and bludgeoned to death. Wilson denounced the mob violence, writing:
“Germany has outlawed herself among the nations because she has disregarded the sacred obligations of law and has made lynchers of her armies … How shall we commend democracy to the acceptance of other peoples … if we disgrace our own by proving that it is, after all, no protection to the weak?”
The National Equal Rights League pushed Wilson to secure the same protections that Wilson had “forced Poland and Austria to undertake for their racial minorities.” But Wilson was not going to go beyond just calling for the rule of law. The FBI, instead of going after racist gangs, was rather fixated on targeting Black radicals. (See Tooze, The Deluge, ch. 18, pp. 339-40) There were also many lynchings that were done by the Ku Klux Klan. In the South the Klan committed 64 lynchings in 1918 and 83 in 1919. Wilson himself was a strong admirer of the Ku Klux Klan and said:
“The white men of the South were aroused by the mere instinct of self-preservation to rid themselves, by fair means or foul, of the intolerable burden of governments sustained by the votes of ignorant negroes and conducted in the interest of adventurers.”
He also once said that the policy of the Union was to “put the white South under the heel of the black South.” Wilson was also a backer of enforced sterilization, as we read in one report from FEE:
“With the dictates of Social Darwinism and the eugenics movement in mind, in 1907, he campaigned in Indiana for the compulsory sterilization of criminals and the mentally retarded; and in 1911, while governor of New Jersey, he proudly signed into law just such a bill.”
This spirit of violent eugenics is still amongst us. Today, a governor of Virginia will say that children of disability have no right to be born or to be alive. It is this sinister spirit, this spirit of Antichrist, that lives on today. These agents who war against humanity reject that God made us in the image of his own eternity (Wisdom 2:23) and war against the one who boasts that God is his father (Wisdom 2:16). If the righteous one declares that God is his Father, then he declares that all of humanity has the same Father. “He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth” (Acts 17:26). Thus the way of racism is the way of the Antichrist, for it goes contrary to the ways of the Apostles, and thus the ways of God. It is this sinister spirit that seeks death in its hatred for the One Who created life. “All who hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:36)
