Tom White Profile in the Richmond Times Dispatch

The Richmond Times Dispatch has been working on an article about the crazy stuff I do. Blogging and music mostly. And they published it today.

Hanover activist has a softer side

Tom White’s gentle and melodious singing voice contrasts sharply with the provocative and aggressive tone of his blog.

White, 60, is a musician, a computer guru, a political activist and a conservative blogger from Hanover County. He runs a blog called Virginia Right, known for its pointed political posts.

In it, he has accused Hanover County schools of promoting a “pro-Muslim” agenda and argued that an LGBT group is brainwashing young children into accepting homosexuality as a lifestyle.

He recently pushed a Hanover principal to remove a math problem that used a character named Jihad, writing that it was “nothing more than desensitization training to prepare young minds for the ongoing pro-Islam education that is being taught in Hanover schools.”

But when he is not writing scathing blog posts, White is known as a jocular and affable guy with a variety of interests and respect for others’ perspectives.

On a recent Wednesday night, he sang a tribute to Bob Marley during a songwriting workshop at a Richmond coffee shop.

After White finished, TeeJay Johnson, an aspiring rap artist, and Luke Rhodes, a Richmond songwriter, told him his chorus was catchy but suggested stretching it out a bit.

Rhodes, who is friendly with White, acknowledged that his blog can be “abrasive.” And he sometimes reminds White to keep politics out of his songwriting.

Johnson said White the activist and blogger is completely different from White the musician.

“When he talks about politics, he’s this gung-ho guy,” Johnson said. When it comes to music, White has an extensive knowledge and is supportive of his fellow musicians.

“She’s an excellent lyricist,” said White, referring to Johnson. He said he has promoted her songs on social media.

“You’re going to make me blush,” Johnson responded jokingly.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
