Uh Oh, ANTIFA: The Entire State Of Virginia Is Named After A Slave-Trader

DC: Antifa clashed with white nationalists in Charlottesville, Va., over a statute of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, but the state itself is named after the woman who brought slavery to the Americas.

Queen Elizabeth I, also known as The Virgin Queen, reigned from 1533 to 1603 and sponsored the expansion of the English slave trade into the British colonies of America and India, according to the national archives of the U.K. When Virginia gained statehood 1788, it owed its name to the late queen.

Antifa, a violent group of left-wing radicals who are known to destroy symbols they deem “problematic,” has yet to voice concerns about two of America’s most storied states paying homage to the Virgin Queen.   MORE

  1. IQs are dropping. Virginia did not “gain statehood in 1788”.

    Daily Caller is declining fast. Its pieces now increasingly read like they were written by Huffpo millenial SJWs.

    Not just the noticeable overall tilt to the Left, but the astonishing ignorance of 6th grade history, geography, etc.

  2. McAuliffe is term limited. He’s gone in January. Unfortunately Ed Gillespie is the republican nominee to replace him. He’s a walking snooze button

  3. HEY ANTIFA ASSHOLES!!

    YOU WANT TO BE OF ACTUAL HELP?? GO AFTER THE OPPRESSION OF WOMEN, GAYS, AND TRANSGENDERS!! GO AFTER MASS MURDER IF INNOCENT MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN!! GO AFTER HONOR KILLINGS!! GO AFTER FEMALE MUTILATION!! GO AFTER GOAT ABUSE!! YES, I’M TALKING ABOUT TAKING ON ISLAM, YOU MINDLESS MORONS!!!!

  4. The left should be complaining about slavery in the Middle East and Africa. They must call for a boycott and not allow immigrants in from any of the countries that have slaves. Oh, Islam is okay with slavery and would probably reinstate it here if they could. Never mind.

  5. Most States have Indian names,as do many counties and towns. A bunch of cities have problematic names and histories (e.g. Chicago) We’ll have a lot of reconciliating and reconstructing to do after the Great Peoples’ Uprising on Nov 4.

  6. Our President was totally correct in pointing out that the violent riots from all sides has to stop. He was also correct in pointing out the Left’s assholish zeal to tear down our symbols and statues.

    Basically, Prez Trump said, “If this keeps up, where does this shit stop?”

    I’ve said several years ago after the church shooting in So Carolina that the Left will soon go after companies, towns and streets with “un-PC” names. For example, anything with the word “Dixie” in it. Winn-Dixie, watch out! Old Dixie Highway in Florida. Anything with Lee, Beauregard, Jackson, Forrest (but not Mansfield Lovell, dammit! He was the Rodney Dangerfield of Confederate Generals)
