Beware the Street Name Police

Old Town is a historic corner of Alexandria, Virginia, rich with historic homes inhabited by many of Washington, D.C.’s managing class. Alexandria voted overwhelmingly for President Joe Biden in 2020. During the campaign, Trump lawn signs were a challenge to find, while Biden-Harris signs dotted the front yards of Old Town’s row houses.

A rump of Alexandria progressives — they call themselves “nonpartisan,” which speaks to their low level of self-awareness — could help push blue Virginia back to red.

Reconstruction Alexandria is working to change “the names of racist/confederate streets, buildings, you name it” in the Beltway city.

As the Alexandria Times reported, activists are collecting signatures to change the name of venerable Lee Street, which, according to the city’s inventory of Confederate street names, was “named for the Lee family of Virginia” upon the death of Mrs. Robert E. Lee in 1874.
