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.
A Week After Getting Kicked Off YouTube, Stefan Molyneux Gets Booted from Twitter
On July 7, 2020, right wing social media philosopher Stefan Molyneux received a suspension from Twitter, a week following his ban from YouTube. This move comes at a time when many people are questioning Big Tech’s influence on political discussion on the Internet
The ban was implemented without even so much as a warning, according to a report by RT. Molyneux explained the situation during a livestream. “It’s nice to see that Twitter is talking to tech journalists before they would talk to me,” he commented. The right-wing pundit asserted that he was suspended from the platform following the promotion of a new essay that details his values and beliefs. “It’s not hard to understand why powerful people might not want you to read what I wrote below,” Molyneux wrote in a note detailing his suspension from Twitter.
Molyneux is of the opinion that the campaign to deplatform conservative influences has begun to “energize” conservatives. He believes that his ban shows “who has the power and who doesn’t have the power.”
Twitter disputed the idea that he was kicked off for ideological reasons. Twitter provided a statement to CNN in which it contended that Molyneux “was suspended for spam and platform manipulation, specifically operating fake accounts.”
But others condemned Twitter’s decision and warned of a growing assault on free speech, expecting “the purge” to “accelerate.”
Fellow commentators such as Mike Cernovich were critical of this decision. He took it a step further by predicting that the group of renowned public figures who recently signed on to an open letter calling out cancel culture would not bother to defend Molyneux.
Cernovich tweeted,”The Venn diagram of people who just signed that Against Cancel Culture letter and those who will mention Stefan Molyneux being banned will be two wholly non-intersecting circles.”

Molyneux is the host of Freedomain Radio and was permanently unpersoned from YouTube on June 29 after supposedly being in violation of the site’s “hate speech” policies.
Molyneux’s removal comes at a time when Big Tech is putting the clamps on all forms of right-wing dissent.
As the 2020 elections approach, this kind of censorship will likely increase against figures who actually stir the pot.
