Media Ignores the Virginia Counties that Voted to Keep Confederate Monuments

The media completely ignored the three counties whose voters voted to keep Confederate monuments in place.

Virginia voters in Mathews, Middlesex, and Nottoway counties decided to turn down a bid to remove all Confederate monuments in their jurisdictions last Tuesday.

In Matthews Country, for instance, voters were asked of they wanted to destroy the Soldier’s & Sailor’s Monument that sits at Court and Church streets on the Historic Curt Green. Voters said to leave the monument alone.

Middlesex County was asked to eliminate a Confederate monument raised by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1910. The question was placed on the ballot after the county board voted in July to add it. Voter rejected it.

Finally, in Nottoway decided to keep a Confederate monument that has sat in front of the county courthouse since 1893.

Per Big League Politics:

Mathews County voted against erasing its history by 80%-20%, while Middlesex and Nottoway counties voted against taking down their monuments 75%-25% and 68%-32% respectively.

Similarly, exit polls showed that 54% of the Virginian electorate were against removing Confederate monuments.

Looks like the anti-American liberals have not yet quite won this argument with Virginia’s voters.
