I Hate Being Right: Liberals Go After Route 1

On July 3rd, I wrote an article entitled, “Jefferson Davis HWY: Change the Name or Dig it Up Completely?“, making fun of liberals desire to ban, destroy, and rename everything that reminds them of their racist history and devotion to slavery.

Today? Now this:

Amid moves around the country to banish Confederate flags from public view and remove statues of Confederate leaders from prominent places, an online petition to rename Virginia’s Jefferson Davis Highway has been launched.

A statue of Davis, the Kentucky-born president of the Confederate States of America, has already been targeted for removal from his birth state’s capitol rotunda by Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)

Regarding the Jefferson Davis Highway, the road winds from Northern Virginia southward “to the North Carolina line.” My Fox DC reports that it was originally “planned as a transcontinental highway that would begin in Washington, D.C., pass through many southern states, and end in San Diego.”

The Jefferson Davis Highway was created in the 1920s and sponsored by the Daughters of the Confederacy. Signatures for the petition to change the name are being gathered on, where visitors are told to “Stop Memorializing a Slave Owner and White Supremacist: Rename Jefferson Davis Highway.”

I somewhat hoped that by mocking them, they might refrain from personifying everything I was mocking them for. Sadly, they are everything I mock them for, and worse. Nothing is beyond the realm of possibility with these people. So, Democrats are only taking one side of the Democrat Debate. Now we wait for the other shoe to drop.

Will Democrats vow to dig up Route 1, Jefferson Davis HWY, if the Governor refuses to rename it?

Is Governor McAuliffe involved in protecting Jefferson Davis HWY? No one knows. No one asked him.

But isn’t that suspicious enough??!?!

We’re moving forward! Permanent Revolution! No racist road shall survive!

    So how’s that “defending white supremacists like Jefferson Davis” thing working out for you?
    No one’s talking about digging up a road, you stupid twits. They just don’t think a militant slavery-defending politician should have a road named after him.
    Nice try on the “their racist history” part too. It’s not about political party, though we all know that the labels of conservative and liberal would be reversed when referring to the 19th century. It’s about not endorsing a sad part of our heritage, the subjugation of an entire race. But it’s all good for you dopes, so have at it!

      You call us dopes when millions upon millions of hard working immigrants came to this great country well after the Civil War as did my father.Most had no clue nor did they care
      about digging up bad times and regurgitating them forever and using them as an excuse for a lack of drive and determination to work hard and make positive contributions to this great country as you seem so willing to do! There are many great black’s who made super positive examples with that same drive of those from countries like Germany,Poland,England Ireland,Italy,and on and on and you do nothing but insult their intelligence and ambition.
      If you asked these millions who came here after 1900 about the Civil War most all would ask what the hell are you talking about? Slaves, I don’t know anything about slaves and don’t know anyone who ever had or owned any and besides I am too busy working so go take you hateful talk somewhere else. Who is THE DOPE? You idiot!

      You have been hoodwinked. It is part of a program by Obama and his cohorts to divide the country on racial lines, stir up the black folks to vote Democratic. The White House does not represent Americans. His rainbow decoration of his house shows this. He talks democracy, christian etc. but his actions are Muslim. This has been a pre planned attack on things Southern just waiting for an excuse to be put into action. When some nut shoots a bunch of people the plan comes to life. My kin fought on both sides, it is history. A country who destroys its history will make the same mistakes again and again.

    Popular Democrat Jefferson Davis isn’t the problem.

  3. Steven Brodie Tucker

    Fascism, on the other hand, in the Democrat Party, might be.

  4. Paul Blumstein says:

    Possibly another case of life imitating art?

    Why does this feel so much like book burning ala Fahrenheit 451?

    Or, perhaps, reshaping history is more like 1984?

    Progressives survive by reliving the past ,demonizing America’s sins and quite frankly I am a bit perplexed why anyone doesn’t immediately recognize it, and the reasons for it.

    No other nation has done more , spent more and labored as has the U.S to correct ( to the extent one can correct such a horrible period ) the terrible blight of our treatment of an entire race. That said, at what point do we let it go and spend our time , energy and resources addressing the issues Progressives just as soon wished we ignore ?

    Last weekend in Chicago, not much different from any other weekend in Chicago seven murders took place, all people of color and one happened to be a 7 year old child. Too often we hear the term of ” black on black crime” without much discussion of why this modern day phenomena exists

    Walter Williams has spoke of his childhood nights of sleeping on the fire escape to find relief from the brutal heat of the summer nights. This took place back in the 1940’s , when certainly America’s race relations were nowhere near what they are today. Discrimination as Dr. Williams points out was overt and officially sanctioned. Employment and education opportunities were largely still at that time denied to people of color. Yet families stayed together and felt safe in inner cities ( he lived in New York City ) Contrast that with what we have today. Children were raised with two parents in the home. They were poor, treated unfairly, but love and discipline & family order existed.

    And then ask the question…..why do these folks want to talk about a highway name ? I think it answers itself.

    What are the odds that people like Bill Howell will spend an equal amount if time fighting to have roads like “MALCOLM X BLVD” in DC changed?

    We’ve got plenty of Virginians to be proud of (Washington, Jefferson, Monroe, Booker T. Washington, Oliver Hill, just to name a few) to have to name a road for someone whose major accomplishment was trying to undo the country that so many Virginians proudly built, fought for, died for and pledge allegiance to. Rename Jeff Davis highway!

    • Paul Blumstein says:

      Jeff Davis was very American. At that time, the North had more representatives and was making laws against the South. (Slavery wasn’t the reason the War started). Jeff Davis was following the advice given in The Declaration of Independence: “…Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”.

      We always need to remember that option.

        The war was primarily about Slavery:

        2nd sentence of Georgia secession declaration: “we have had numerous and serious causes of complaint against our non-slave-holding confederate States with reference to the subject of African slavery.”

        2nd paragraph of Mississippi secession declaration: “Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery– the greatest material interest of the world…[abolition] has been long aimed at the institution, and was at the point of reaching its consummation.”

        South Carolina secession declaration: “But an increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding States to the institution of slavery, has led to a disregard of their obligations, and the laws of the General Government have ceased to effect the objects of the Constitution. ”

        Texas Secession declaration: “They demand the abolition of negro slavery throughout the confederacy, the recognition of political equality between the white and negro races, and avow their determination to press on their crusade against us, so long as a negro slave remains in these States.

        For years past this abolition organization has been actively sowing the seeds of discord through the Union, and has rendered the federal congress the arena for spreading firebrands and hatred between the slave-holding and non-slave-holding States.”

        Should I go on?

        Davis was a traitor. The Confederate Flag is a celebration of traitors. I don’t want Jefferson Davis Highway anymore than I want “Benedict Arnold Highway” or “King George Highway”

  8. Paul Blumstein says:

    One statement among many is hardly proof of the cause of secession.

    And, only plantation owners owned slaves. As yourself why almost every white southerner (& a few blacks) would risk everything to keep slavery.

    Take a look at the Northern recruitment posters. Not one says “Join the army and free the slaves.”

    And, if you have the time and energy, check the newspapers around near the start of the war.

    If you don’t like the Jeff Davis Highway, take another route.

    • Anonymous says:

      One statement among many? These were THE statements the States made declaring themselves seceded. I’m wondering why so many seem to have trouble with history; the Confederacy ADMITTED IN THEIR OWN WRITING that the ONLY reason they were seceding was the preservation of SLAVERY.

      Plantation owners dominated the government, held all economic power and then decided to start war by firing on Ft. Sumter. At the point at which they began the war, they knew the non-slave holding whites would be forced to fight when faced with the Union Army attacking. Slaveholders put slavery above everything: morality, their fellow Southerners (white and black).

  9. Paul Blumstein says:

    This will be my last post on this topic. Instead of cherry-picking to prove my point, I will present the full picture for the readers to see for themselves. Especially interesting is the declaration of SC as it was the first state to secede.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
