Fairfax compares sexual assault allegation backlash to lynchings

Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax on Sunday compared himself to victims of lynching amid accusations that he sexually assaulted two women. Fairfax has denied the accusations of sexual assault by Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson. House Majority Leader Del. Todd Gilbert called Fairfax’s comments about lynchings as the most ’disgusting type of rhetoric he could have invoked’.

What you have gone through is nothing even close to a lynching. Welcome to the #metoo era you jackass. You didn't speak up for Kavanaugh I bet. Enjoy that boomerang coming back and cracking your skull that your own Party threw as a political weapon.

Bullshit, bud. Nice try, but don't lessen the experiences of real lynching victims by comparing yourself to them! That is damn offensive!!! Shame on you.

It is the Democrats crying the loudest for his head and it was the Democrats that historically used the KKK to terrorize and lynch blacks.

Live by the sword die by the sword, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. You didn’t protest when this happened to others and as long as it happened to others and not you, you didn’t protest. The point was made by classical liberals and conservatives alike , and around the globe , that the #me too movement was in danger of becoming a dangerous mob and the MSMs demand for perpetrators was undermining due process . I didn’t hear you joining the concern. Enjoy.

People literally compare themselves to real victims all the time. Idiots can we just swamp out those victims with them instead

It can't be heard in a court of law because there is no evidence other than he said she said.
