Since the Charlottesville protests of 2017, the Left has been on a monument removal craze, which conservative Pat Buchanan noted in a recent column.
With Democrats in firm control of the state legislature, they will likely shove their PC agenda down Virginians’ throats.
Buchanan calls attention to how first-term Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton has criticized U.S. capitol statues of George Washington and Robert E. Lee.
Both statues have been significant artifacts of Virginian history for over a century at Washington, D.C.
Instead, Wexton wants to replace Lee with an African American hero from a list that she and Congressman A. Donald McEachin submitted.
Two of those on the list are lesser-known figures from the desegregation era of the 1950s. The third is the renowned historical figure Nat Turner.
In “The Americans: A Social History of the United States,” published in 1969, author J. C. Furnas gives a politically incorrect perspective to the life of Nat Turner:
In August 1831, Nat Turner, paranoid slave preacher and cunjur man, led his superstition-fuddled followers to kill fifty-five whites of all sexes and ages in an aimless terrorizing of Southhampton County in the southeastern corner of Virginia.
“The poor twisted creature could hardly have found a worse time to sharpen Southern fears of a slave rising,” wrote Furnas. The Virginia legislature ended up rejecting bill that would gradually phase out slavery by a narrow margin.
Turner would be tried and hanged after he was caught.
Nat Turner’s terrorist actions had effectively delayed emancipation.
Buchanan argued that “If the Virginia General Assembly votes to replace Robert E. Lee in the U.S. Capitol with a statue of Nat Turner, it will not be the unifying event Wexton imagines.”
However, things are getting heated on other fronts.
On January 20th, there will be a “Lobby Day” at the Assembly, where thousands of gun advocates will gather in Richmond to protest Northam and his new Democrat majority’s gun control proposals.
BLP reported that about 91 counties have created “Second Amendment sanctuaries” where local authorities are expected to not enforce prospective infringements on the Second Amendment by the state legislature.
The Washington Post wrote:
Virginia is a former Confederate State with strong rural traditions and lax gun laws. Guns represent the strongest, reddest line against the demographic changes that have seen Old Dominion voters usher in a new era of Democratic leadership in recent elections.
A Nevada-based group called the Oath Keepers said it is sending training teams to help form posses and militia in Virginia. The leader of a Georgia militia called Three Percent Security Force has posted videos and calls to arms on Facebook, urging ‘patriots’ to converge on Richmond.
It’s not just guns and history that Virginians are divided over.
Last year, Northam voiced his support for abortion through the first nine months of pregnancy. He took it a step further by supporting abortion even if it was unsuccessful.
Northam made his views about the rights of the unborn clear:
(Third trimester abortions are) done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s nonviable. 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.
Political tensions are so high in Virginia that Buchanan believes “a new secession is underway” because “Virginians are separating from each other over issues as deep and divisive — such as who can take innocent life and when — as those that divided us in 1861.”
Although calls for secession will likely not morph into anything concrete in the short-term, Virginia is clearly politically polarized at the moment.
The 2020 session of the Virginia General Assembly will be a heated affair no matter how we look at it.

Trouble in Paradise: Establishment Democrats Working to Eliminate AOC’s House Seat
According to an article from Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, Democrat leadership is making an effort eliminate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s house seat.
Elected in 2018, in New York’s 14th congressional district, AOC has become the face of a new generation of Democrat radicals.
Jarret noted however that AOC’s extreme politics is creating a “divide amongst her own party, even with the head honcho herself, Nancy Pelosi.”
From radical open borders policies to Medicare for All, AOC is pushing the legislative envelope. She has also set up a PAC “Courage to Change” that is currently funding seven House candidates. On Twitter, AOC declared, “it’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more.”
However, The NY Post noted that Democrat leadership are making efforts to derail her hype train. In the article, the Post noted that AOC “may not last in Congress.” The freshman congresswoman is “Already in hot water for refusing to pay dues to her caucus’ fundraising arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, she’s now devoting her resources instead to defeating Democrats.”
The Post concluded, “Don’t be surprised when the established Democrats who’ll control redistricting after the 2020 Census does their best to eliminate her seat.”
This recent struggle shows how the culturally radical wing of the Democrat Party is starting to butt heads with the establishment gatekeepers.
This is indicative of a cultural and political realignment where old school Democrats are likely to be eaten alive their radical offspring thanks to demographic shift.
