“Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University, has voiced his support for efforts to allow counties in Virginia unhappy with the state’s Democrat-controlled Legislature to join West Virginia.
Standing alongside West Virginia’s Gov. Jim Justice in a roomful of whirring robotic factory machinery at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College in Martinsburg, Falwell told reporters that he backs so-called Vexit efforts.
“Many counties (in Virginia) are taking a long hard look at escaping the barbaric, totalitarian and corrupt Democratic regime that is trampling on individual rights throughout the state,” Falwell said.“
When West Virginia seceded from Virginia because it had seceded from the United States of America. A standing invite was created for the border counties between the two states and recognized by the government of the USA because the South lost.
“Earlier this year, the West Virginia Senate adopted a resolution by voice vote to remind residents of Frederick County, Virginia, that the county has a standing invite from 1862 — to become part of West Virginia in response to the legislation being proposed in Virginia.
Now Governor Justice of West Va. has expanded to the invitation to ALL counties in Virginia.
I lived in Virginia, briefly in the 1990s, I got a bit of feel for their attitudes and I developed a fondness for their preposterous arrogance.
Their state has been invaded and taken over by the city of Washington DC. That is the truth of it. Virginia is now in the position that most other states that are “blue” are in. Most of those states would be rock Red if it weren’t for one major municipality.
I call those the Predator Cities.
Virginians love of their Old Dominion is one so old that it is like a path that has been carved into stone by centuries of feet treading upon them. Abandoning it will be difficult even if they aren’t leaving their homes.
But at this point real Virginians have only two other options, open rebellion and complete submission.
For what it’s worth guys, if New York Magazine hates it, it’s got to be a good idea.
