Virginia County Renames Highway to Please PC Masters

Published

on

Political correctness culture scored a major victory when the Virginia Commonwealth Transportation Board unanimously approved changing the name of Jefferson Davis Highway in Arlington County on Thursday, May 17, 2019.

According to Patch, Route 1 and 110 will be named Richmond Highway, replacing the name of the president of the Confederacy.

Ralph Northam tweeted “Good news. Glad to see unanimous support for this change from the Commonwealth Transportation Board.”

This is the same Ralph Northam that Big League Politics exposed for his own racist past by posing in a photo wearing either blackface or a KKK robe.

Northam has been busy running a whitewashing campaign to hide his own racist past and this is just yet another attempt by injecting himself into the conversation.

This recent change is part of a larger PC movement to remove statues and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and generals. Supporters of these movements contend that those who fought to preserve slavery during the Civil War should not be honored. On other hand, critics assert that statue removals are effectively removing history and setting the stage for the removal of foundational figures like the American Founding Fathers.

This move was similar to one implemented by Alexandria last year. On a unanimous vote, the city council renamed the stretch of Route 1 that went through Alexandria to Richmond Highway after three years’ worth of discussion. This change came into effect on January 1.
