The Governor of West Virginia has invited disgruntled residents of the state of Virginia to buck their liberal government and join his state instead. The bizarre invitation was delivered via a joint press conference with Liberty University’s president, Jerry Falwell Jr. on Tuesday and would require that dissatisfied Virginia counties act on an 1862 standing invitation to join the West.
“If you’re not happy where you’re at, come on down,” Governor Jim Justice said at the presser, according to Fox News. “If you’re not truly happy where you are, we stand with open arms to take you from Virginia or anywhere you may be. We stand strongly behind the Second Amendment, and we stand strongly for the unborn.”
In November, the Democrats regained control of the Virginia General Assembly for the first time in a decade and quickly pledged a series of laws seeking to expand abortion access and tighten gun control.
“While Governor Justice and I have always shared great pride for our states, what’s happening in Virginia right now is a tragedy in the making,” Falwell said of the current political situation. “Democrat leaders in Richmond, through their elitism and radicalism, have left a nearly unrecognizable state in their wake, and they are using their power to strip away the God-given rights held by every person in the state, despite their due protections under the U.S. Constitution.”
