Battle for the Old Dominion

With the recent triumph of the Democrat Party in the 2019 statewide elections in Virginia, it will only be a matter of time before an effort is made to rewrite Virginia law concerning “memorials for war veterans.” Progressive efforts to topple these monuments have been thwarted by legal obstacles, and now, with a majority in both houses of the Virginia legislature, Democrats will undoubtedly include a potential revision to any monument protection law as part of a larger “social justice” legislative package. The culture war will consume Old Virginny.

Part of the problem, of course, rests with the modern education system. The minds of mush who run around demanding an end to symbols of “white supremacy” are encouraged by an academic establishment more interested in activism than understanding and knowledge. Two recent pieces on Virginia history, written or influenced by professors at the University of Virginia, underscore the problem.
