Jerry Falwell Jr. Has The Virginia Sadz

The Hill reports:

Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University and an ally of President Trump, said on Tuesday that the District of Columbia should “annex” Northern Virginia and return governance of the state “to Virginians.

His argument appeared to hinge on federal employees who work in Washington while living in Virginia. Parts of Northern Virginia, including Fairfax County and Alexandria County, were won by Northam in Tuesday’s election.

  • this is the literal definition of gerrymandering. you would think the president of a university would know that.

    • basementmatt

      He does, and it’s probably what he wants.

    • Phil

      In his defense, it’s not a very good university…..

      • Gene Perry

        & not a very good president …

      • Gerry Fisher

        I saw what you did there. 🙂

      • Oh, Parker

        I saw a bumper sticker for Liberty University on one of those giant GM dinosaur SUVs the other day. It also had sports team stickers for a high school that’s in a “white flight” and heavy Trump supporting area south of Indianapolis. I just sat there and went…yup.

    • worstcultever

      I wonder how many resumes with “Liberty University” on them go instantly to the reject pile in the actual world of businesses and entities who wish to hire smart people.

      • Tawreos

        If it were up to me, it would be all of them.

      • Oh, Parker

        You’d be surprised at how many deplorables in Indy get into jobs they aren’t prepared or skilled for due to saying just the right amount of Jesusy stuff and knowing the right people. They don’t usually advance much or distinguish themselves, but it’s enough for them to make the payment on their Yukon while everyone else carries their weight. I mean, it’s fucking epidemic.

      • Librarykid

        During the reign of the shrub, there was a woman at the DOJ picking Liberty graduates to pack the justice system with right wing robots.

        Liberty University makes me thing of what we learned in social studies in the 60s: countries with words like “free” or “peoples'” “democratic” “republic” etc. were none of those and were generally repressive, authoritarian communist, etc.

    I live and work in Northern Virginia. The federal government isn’t the big scary entity that Republicans have made it out to be – it’s a big place with lots of buildings that my neighbors go to and work in every day. Even if you take away the hatred that Trump spews, at the end of the day they know a really really bad department manager when they see one

    • Nowhereman

      Whenever I hear people say that we need a businessman to run the country, I cringe.

      • Ron Robertson

        And if they can’t disenfranchise them, they lie their way into office, and if that’s not working, they gerrymander their way in. It’s their trifecta of power grabs. Since they rely exclusively on that, and not their political positions, it tells you what they think of their own platform.

        • Nowhereman

          We have GOT to get our hands on more state legislatures in 2018. That is imperative. And I hope that the democrats are serious about having a 50 state agenda. They’ve ignored my state (Alaska) forever.

    Where the hell is the so-called “conflict” in NoVa?

    • boatboy_srq

      Two parts.

      1) Rural VA is getting trigggered about encroaching exurbs (this despite getting rich selling their farmland for tony subdivisions), and they hate paying taxes and getting the services those taxes provide. Google “Don’t Metro Loudoun” for an example.

      2) Much of the new NoVA community is Blah/Brown, and lily-white Vuhjinnya don’t hold with that.

  • marshlc

    This is a line of thought that particularly irks me – “if you think and live differently than I do, you’re not really a Virginian”.

    Sometimes it’s used pretty lightly, but most of the time it’s an attack, even when wrapped in the sheep’s clothing of a light banter.

    After our last provincial election here in Alberta, there was a thing about the new premier not knowing how to wear a cowboy hat, with pictures of her at the Calgary Stampede with her hat on backwards. “Ha ha, she’s not really an Albertan” with a strong undercurrent of “She’s not the legitimate premier”. To which my reply was “I’m sixty fucking years old and have lived and worked and paid taxes in this province for all but about five of those years. I’ve never worn a goddam cowboy hat and wouldn’t if you paid me to but if you want to say I’m not “really” an Albertan because of that well just step a little closer when you say it”.

    In the same way, the right in most countries have stolen the word “patriot” to only mean their brand of stupid nationalism. I just can’t stand this and call it out whenever I see it.

    • boatboy_srq

      Falwell’s response is a glimpse into the dark soul of GOTea “federalism.” They really do want 50 separate countries cooperating under an umbrella treaty org rather than a union, and it shows in moments like these.

      • RoFaWh

        The US once had that. It was called the Articles of Confederation and it didn’t work worth a damn.

        • boatboy_srq

          Most of the Civil War scholarship I have seen hints rather broadly that had the South won the Confederacy would have dissolved completely by 1900 for just the same reasons, leaving the Union with a dozen warring states on its southern border.

    • Karl Dubhe

      Steven, our old PM, also wore his hat backwards in a Stampede event. IIRC.

      Most of my farming relatives in Alberta wear baseball hats, not cowboy hats. Maybe the guys who talk about who the real Albertans are, are actually from somewhere else. 🙂

      • RoFaWh

        Texans have a phrase for it: “All hat and no cattle.”

I’m betting it will happen sometime between Thursday and early next week.
        I’m getting my stash of popcorn ready. We thought the indictment of Manafort was good, this is going to be even better.

          I’m faintly surprised they even know to get out of bed in the morning.

    • Librarykid

      This is the trouble with Islam. It means “submission” and that is not human nature or even most living things’ nature. Most living things seek to make things more comfortable for themselves by striving to make their situation better. Plants grow toward light and extend roots into soil. Animals hunt for food, lodging and sexual partners. Nothing alive sits submissive.

      • GayOldLady

        Every religion requires submission to something. Usually what they consider the “will of god”.

        • RoFaWh

          Give me a religion where it suffices to just pop into the temple once a year (or even just once a decade) and say “hi” to the resident idol.

      • zhera

        I guess I should have worded my question differently. Why is DC a district separate from a state?

        • swimboy

          The district was set up so that no single state would have more influence over the federal government than any other. It was felt at the time that if federal employees (and federal property) were under the jurisdiction of a state’s government, it would provide unfair influence.

          • zhera

            Thanks!

        • Baltimatt

          The US Constitution specifies that a federal district up to 10 miles square be ceded by a state or state and under the authority of the Congress, Article 1, Section 8.

          Federal districts aren’t uncommon around the world but I don’t know why it works elsewhere….where people actually got along unlike the colonies. We had 8 “capitals” before DC and the Residence Act 1790. The government moved there in 1800 with all 131 federal employees.

    • Hank

      DC, as a non-state, has a non-voting member of the House of Representatives, however the DC Government can still be overruled by the House (Rethuglicans) if the House does not like what the District Government approves, i.e. Legalizing anything. We can vote for a Mayor and City Council to run the District of Columbia. We can vote in national elections for 3 electoral votes for President. It was set up as a region for the Federal Government, which OWNS large areas, and all the buildings, white House, Museums, and other Government owned buildings do NOT pay real estate taxes to the District, either. Part of the income, that the Federal Govt. gives to DC can be withheld.
      It was never supposed to be an area, that people actually lived, but where the Federal Government resides. People were supposed to reside in the states, that they come from. It changed early on to a place of residence for people and never had a vote. As of now, the population of DC is greater, than @ the 10 smaller states in population. Yet still now no vote in the House and certainly no Senator.

  • Tulle Christensen

    A long time ago Congress gave the DC area south of the Potomac back to Virginia because the state wanted it back.

    • stuckinthewoods

      Back then it seemed impossible to believe that the federal government could use even a fraction of the 100 sq miles. All federal buildings were by law to be built on the MD side, the government had control of the total but was letting a major port, Alexandria, become neglected. Then, as now, there were political rivalries in Virginia, some Virginians weren’t sure they wanted it back, but it was returned in 1846. Remember, this was the area of the unionist Restored Government of Virginia during the Civil War, in concert with the counties that became West Virginia.

      • Craig Howell

        The 1846 drive to retrocede the area of DC south of the Potomac to Virginia was led by the big slave trading companies, who were worried that Congress would abolish the slave trade in the District. Most of their business was in Alexandria, not Washington City, so they continued to thrive after Congress did just that a few years later.

        • Kruhn

          That and to counter Western Virginia’s weight in The House of Burgesses with their lack of attachment to slavery.

        • stuckinthewoods

          Strange to think of these areas of the present DC metro area as separate cities with separate fortunes. Georgetown was a port itself then, now expensive shops and residences. Which states bought slaves, which areas had slaves to sell, which states preferred cheaper imported slaves, which states dealt in shipping slaves, which states had investors in developing regions like AL and MS…the early 19th C was so complicated and different from now it’s hard to comprehend the time. It’s like reading about some fictional country. I have in front of me an 1854 guide, 8 years after this…unbelievable difference, not much beyond what appears to be (unnamed) Logan Circle.

    I have a much better idea: let’s kick red states out of the union altogether. I’m sick of them sucking money from blue states.

    • RoFaWh

      Instead, let’s cancel the citizenship of red state inhabitants, then be nice and agree to let them stay in their homes if they buy annual licenses. Or maybe temporary work visas.

      Just cut them straight out of any participation in American democracy.

    • SelectFromWhere

      32 million people in Red states voted for Clinton last year, and almost 22 million in Blue states voted for Trump.
      It’s not as simple as categorizing people by what state they live in, any more than it is to categorize people by race, gender, orientation, religion, etc–but thanksforplaying.

    If the GOTea had not fallen in love with defense contracting and lobbyists with fat expense accounts, NoVA would not be the overdeveloped trainwreck it has become. They made this bed. Sorry, Junior.

    This makes me happy: “Virginia elected its first openly transgender state lawmaker on Tuesday, voting Democrat Danica Roem into the state’s House of Delegates. She unseated Virginia Del. Bob Marshall, the Republican who introduced the “bathroom bill” that would have prohibited transgender students from using the bathroom of their choice.”

    That she unseated hate monger Marshall is especially sweet.

    • RoFaWh

      Sounds very trumpian.

  • William

    Falwell should consider moving his church and University to Zimbabwe.

  • Puck

    How does he know what the founders intended? Using his crystal ball again? If they intended anything they would have written in the constitution that dc is for the conflicted. I believe they intended that there would be no liberty university.

    • RoFaWh

      Just more bullshit pulled straight out of his ass.

    • paganguy

      Because that’s what the voices in his head tell him.

  • Steven H

    Everyone is conflicted in a democracy!!! The whole point of democracy is that the voters have a vested interest in the outcome.

    There’s no indication that the founders intended for anyone to live in DC anyway, and all of them (you know, the politicians who are clearly conflicted) and their white, male employees were allowed to vote.

    Also, it’s a sin against this country that the nearly 700,000 people living in DC don’t get to vote for Congress. There are more of us than there are Vermonters and Wyomingjits.

  • The_Wretched

    Falwell Jr hates democracy?

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Most rabid Christians do, after all, God is a King, he has no time for things like freedom…only obedience.

  • DN

    He wants to give us all of northern virginia? Is he familiar with the US constitution? Taking on NOVA would result in a District greater than 100 square miles. Which is unconstitutional. Does he seriously want 2/3 approval in both houses plus 3/4 state approval of a 28th amendment?

    Gotta love how conservatives wrap themselves in the Constitution but only when it suits them.

  • LeeCMH

    I don’t think Virginia will go for NOVA. Think about all the taxes the state gets from those suburbs.

  • coram nobis

    Pride goeth before a Falwell.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      Kudos

  • Kruhn

    Sure Sprawn of Falwell! Because as you read the Act that established the District of Columbia, it says it is a 10 square mile district, so only Arlington could revert back to DC. And while we’re at it, asshole, Arlington County reverted back to Virginia so that the state legislature could have more slaveholders as delegates to counter the freeholders and yeoman farmers of what later became West Virginia. I doubt even the most rabid Republican wants to lose the Commonwealth’s electoral weight.

    • JAKvirginia

      Well… actually, the VA part of the District was reverted back to VA after the Civil War as punishment for seceding. Fun fact: the land was returned but not the river. At the end of King Street in Old Town Alexandria is a marina. The boat residents pay taxes to DC.

      • Kruhn

        Nope. That happened prior to the Civil War.

        • JAKvirginia

          Correct. Thank you.

  • RoFaWh

    I wonder what his financial crimes are.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    When it comes to Christians, my charity is lacking….on purpose. Choke on this your fucker….

    Thoughts and prayers for all Republicans who lost last night.

  • cleos_mom

    But can he pray away those epic D.C. traffic jams?

  • Snarky

    So Falwell is saying that the only way to win VA is to handwave and not count one third of the state’s population?

    GOP losers just admitted that they only appeal to rednecks, and they wish only rednecks could vote.

  • Richard B

    I am so looking forward to the day when the dishonest, amoral narcissist is driven out of office and his embracing scamvangelist enablers, like Jerry Fallwell, Jr. never let go of their anchor Trump and sink to the bottomless depths of obscurity.

    Shutup asshole. Remember what happened The last times you guys tried that!

  • ErikDC

    Even if Virginia gave back Arlington County and all of Alexandria to the District (only part of Alexandria was ever part of DC), Northam still would have won by 150,000 votes. Even with all of Fairfax County included with Arlington and Alexandria (an absurd idea if you’re going by the founders original intent, none of which was ever part of DC), Northam still would have eeked out a narrow victory. Giving the District all 3 of those counties would make DC bigger by population than a quarter of all states and equivalent to the population of New Mexico. There is a better chance Falwell will be elected Pope someday than of that ever happening and, even if it did, Ralph Northam would STILL be Governor-Elect of the state of Virginia today.

    The Republicans just got shellacked last night.

    I was actually wondering whether, in ALL Red south-western Virginia, there might be move to join WV (ironic, since WV originally split because they stayed w/ the Union in the Civil War).

    • jerry

      Not likely, though SW VA, E KY, SE OH, and the WV southern coal counties do have everything in common.

  • SelectFromWhere

    Wonder how much economic growth for the state comes from that region, compared to the rural west?

  • Danny Higgins

    He must have forgotten his, and the bible’s, ideas about “God puts those in power that he wants to lead.” Remember Jerry? You say that all the time about Trump. Well, Bucko, if that is true then God has put a Democrat man in the Virginia Governor’s chair and a Transgender woman in a Virginia House seat. Who are you now to deny God’s wishes?

    • Gianni

      They always forget those applicable Bible pieces when they don’t like what has happened. Then it overwhelmingly becomes the hated ones’ fault for somehow blowing past God’s control. It’s in those cases that God has “allowed” the hated thing to happen – thereby, it was still under His control. It’s called ‘pretzel logic’.

  • Charlie

    maybe Jerry Jr. should take Liberty U. out of Virginia, perhaps to Alabama or a more welcoming state…not sure that any of us would miss him or the school…

    by-eeeeee!!!

    • Gianni

      Alabama would certainly be more in line with his fundie thinking/beliefs.

  • ArchiLaw

    There’s always a scene when you can’t win fair. BTW, Rev, Fairfax and Loudoun Counties were never part of DC. Thanks for playing.

  • Davester

    This is the best he can do? His dad was a much better drama queen/right-wing ambulance chaser/rabble-rouser.

    He deleted that tweet apparently.
