Northam came out from behind his desk once the all-clear was sounded, and sent this self-congratulatory tweet:
“We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The teams successfully de-escalated what could have been a volatile situation. I will continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and will do everything in my power to keep our Commonwealth safe.”
Having spent the better part of two weeks stirring up dissent and poking the bear, Northam hastily threw up barricades and announced the approach of the barbarians. According to Ralphie, the Legions of Hell were on their way and Richmond was going to be the portal to Armageddon.
I doubt anyone of import in the State or City police departments took him seriously.
Now the world knows he is a self-important silly little man who sees an Indian behind every tree. For seventeen years 2ndAmendment proponents have participated in Lobby Day with absolutely no incidents. But, of course, Ralphie wasn’t guarding the gates.
Sorry. No data so far.
Perhaps Lady Northam will be stirred by his posturing and posing in the Governor’s chambers tonight, but I doubt it. Who could spend more than ten minutes around this empty suit and not have his number?
Northam states in his tweet that he will listen to the voices of Virginians, but he’s done a fine job of ignoring the will of over 90 percent of his counties. What will change now?
Tonight, a sadness falls over Virginia’s capitol city as media whores and pundits drown their sorrows in cheap beer. Hoping to make their bones covering a bloody rampage, they instead had to settle for chasing down members of groups like Mom’s Demand Action. If the mom’s make it to the same taverns as the network drunks, they may get seven seconds of action.
Northam is beating his chest, but you can bet your thirty-round magazine he was hugging tight to his security team all day, and now he realizes what could happen if the citizens of his state chose to use their numbers to back him down.
A salute to all the pro-Constitution attendees in Richmond. You made America proud. And thanks for cleaning up all the litter before you left. Did you perhaps find a pair of tighty-whities with a streak down the back? Lady Northam would like them returned to her husband.
