What today’s insane Democratic Party is doing in Virginia will scare you

For the first time in 26 years, Virginians voted a Democrat majority into both the state’s House and Senate. Four weeks into the General Assembly, the new majority is voting in laws restricting parents’ rights, removing religious protections, and disturbing rights traditional to Virginians…

With Gov. Ralph Northam’s backing, Virginia passed the so-called Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which would repeal multiple protections for women and the unborn, remove restrictions on abortions, and dismantle sensible sex separation in bathrooms, locker rooms, jails, and hospitals. It would also allow minors to abort without parental consent, would remove the ultrasound requirement before an abortion, and would make abortion access a legal right through an amendment to the Virginia Constitution.

“Since there is no evidence of discrimination taking place, the purpose of the so-called nondiscrimination proposals is not to protect anyone, it’s to weaponize the government to discriminate against and harass private businesses and faith-based organizations that have deeply held moral or religious beliefs regarding sexuality and marriage,” …

House Bill 1627 is also of particular concern to Chase. The law would result in aggressive prosecution of any perceived harassment of persons in certain government positions. The bill states, “[C]ertain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.”

“If they can pass open-ended laws on what constitutes harassment, then they can also say your freedom to express yourself … your religion, and what you stand for is now considered threatening,” said Philip Search, Chase’s strategic adviser. “That can be any religion that doesn’t agree with the social norm or what the government entity in power dictates.”

Senate Bill 399 would alter Virginia’s voting system so the state’s Electoral College votes would be awarded to the national popular vote winner. This would further remove Virginia’s autonomy in an election, aligning the state with notoriously far-left states such as California and New York in the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
