Virginia (AP) — Ralph Northam, governor of Virginia, issued a proclamation today calling for wage slaves and indentured servants of state government to take up arms against rebellious “Second Amendment Sanctuaries” that threaten the tranquility of the Commonwealth.
“I have always entertained Hope that Virginia might enact fundamental Change for the people,” says the Northam Proclamation. “To defeat the treasonous Purposes of the rebels, I must now be disagreeable and call out the National Guard because a Body of armed Men has threatened to unlawfully assemble at the State Capitol and destroy the well-disposed Subjects of this State.”
The Northam Proclamation announces:
- That ordinary civil Law is not enough to put down the rebellion
- That the Legislature gives Northam the Virtue, Power, and Authority to enact Martial Law
- That all Traitors shall be brought to Justice, and the Peace and good Order of the State shall be restored
The escalating tensions come after dozens of localities declared themselves Second Amendment Sanctuaries, awakening a long-dormant love for the Constitution among the people.
“Governor Northam is behaving like the royal governors who long preceded him,” said Erich Pratt, senior vice president of Gun Owners of America. “He has arrogantly and brazenly tried to restrict the rights protected to Virginians by the First and Second Amendments.”
“In Virginia, the people only possess rights that the General Assembly expressly grants to them,” said Northam. “The people can’t just cordon themselves off from state law. I have issued orders to the National Guard that the Guard cannot refuse.”
The people of Virginia have responded by declaring a new “Real State of Virginia” with the same motto that Virginia adopted in 1776: “Thus Always to Tyrants.”
“We’re not trying to promote a civil war by any stretch of the imagination, I want to make that clear, but we want to exercise our right under the Constitution to regulate and promote the order of a well-trained militia,” said Travis Hackworth, chairman of Tazewell County’s Board of Supervisors.
