(Natural News) Whenever a Republican lawmaker or official is caught up in a “racial controversy,” even if it’s fabricated by Democrats, all of the Left’s usual suspects in Hollywood race to their nearest personal devices to virtue signal on social media about what ogres, bigots, and poltroons they are, not to mention being menaces to ‘enlightened, progressive’ society.
But when Democrats commit real racist sins, Hollywood’s pretenders to their best impersonation of crickets.
Such was the case last week when late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel ignored the burgeoning controversy involving top Democratic leaders in the Commonwealth of Virginia involving the governor and attorney general and their racist past.
First, Gov. Ralph “Infanticide” Northam was embroiled in scandal when a photo from his 1984 medical school yearbook surfaced. The picture featured someone in blackface smiling and holding what appears to be a beer standing next to someone else in a KKK hood and robe. Northam went on to claim, incredulously, that he ‘doesn’t believe’ either of the people in the photo is him, though the picture appeared on his personal page and students got to select the pictures for their page.
Then, no doubt fearing that he would be exposed next, Virginia’s Democratic attorney general, Mark Herring, issued a statement earlier this week ‘admitting’ that he donned blackface and a wig in 1980 to look like a black rapper at a party when he was a 19-year-old undergraduate at the University of Virginia.
While Democratic presidential contenders including Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Rep. Julian Castro of Texas have come out with perfunctory condemnations of both men along with calls for them to resign, there hasn’t been a major outcry from the dishonest “mainstream media” (MSM) or Kimmel and Fallon, though they both donned blackface as part of comedy skits in the past.

Kimmel donned blackface to mock NBA player Karl “The Mailman” Malone, who played 18 seasons with the Utah Jazz.
Meanwhile, Fallon once donned blackface and other African American characteristics to imitate and mock comedian Chris Rock.
The hypocrisy is thick on the Hollywood Left
As Breitbart News reported:
Indeed, though both Kimmel and Fallon are now subservient to the politically correct nature of Hollywood, there was a time where both reveled in some politically incorrect humor — Kimmel especially.
On The Man Show, Kimmel and his co-host Adam Carolla did a number of non-PC skits. In one, they poke fun at Asians for a “limited grasp of English” and call their home countries “hellholes.”
Meanwhile, Fox News noted further:
Kimmel wore blackface on numerous occasions, impersonating NBA Hall of Famer Karl Malone as well as former daytime talk show host Oprah Winfrey in his Comedy Central series “The Man Show.”
Other late night hosts poked fun at Northam but otherwise gave him a pass. “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who is black and from South Africa, called the Democratic governor a “legend” for claiming to be certain he wasn’t in the yearbook photo because he did blackface at another time. He also called him a “blackface connoisseur” for being an expert in knowing how hard it is to get shoe polish off your face.
Meanwhile, Stephen Colbert praised Northam because he “finally had a chance” to sit down and look at his med school yearbook, adding, “I’m guessing that wearing blackface is one of those things you would remember doing, like skydiving or your first time.”
The hypocrisy is thick, however. Kimmel called POTUS Donald Trump “racist” during his opening monologue for the Oscars in 2017, just a month after he was inaugurated. Also, Kimmel has mocked black music superstar Kanye West over his praise of the president.
When the Left is racist, it’s something to forget about; when a Republican might have, could have, maybe said something racially insensitive, it’s time to go to war with the Right.
