Skip to comments.How Voters Turned Virginia From Deep Red to Solid Blue

SOUTH RIDING, Va. Not long ago, this rolling green stretch of Northern Virginia was farmland. Most people who could vote had grown up here...they usually chose Republicans.
The fields of Loudoun County are disappearing. In their place is row upon row of cookie-cutter townhouses, clipped lawns and cul-de-sacs a suburban landscape for as far as the eye can see. Unlike three decades ago, the residents are often from other places, like India and Korea. And when they vote, it is often for Democrats.
Guns, that is the most pressing issue for me, said Vijay Katkuri, 38, a software engineer from southern India, explaining why he voted for a Democratic challenger in Tuesdays elections. He was shopping for chicken at the Indian Spice Food Market. There are lots of other issues, but you can only fix them if you are alive.
Mr. Katkuris vote the first of his life helped flip a longtime Republican State Senate district and deliver the Virginia statehouse to the Democratic Party for the first time in a generation... But while political leaders come and go, the deeper, more lasting force at work is demographics.
Once the heart of the confederacy, Virginia is now the land of Indian grocery stores, Korean churches and Diwali festivals. The state population has boomed up by 38 percent since 1990, with the biggest growth in densely settled suburban areas like South Riding. One in 10 people eligible to vote in the state were born outside the United States, up from one in 28 in 1990. It is also significantly less white. In 1990, the census tracts that make up Mr. Katkuris Senate district were home to about 35,000 people 91 percent of them white. Today, its population of 225,000 is just 64 percent white.

So disarmed Indians from India come here and vote to disarm us. That pretty much sums up the virus that is leftism.
The New York Times will on one hand say Americans are wrong to be anxious over immigrants, then turn right around and write about how much said immigrants loathe the First and Second Amendments and want to ban "hate speech" and guns.
...and this so-called “educated” immigrant said that he lived for a while in New Jersey. But it was congested and expensive, and crime was high.
So he moved to Virginia and supports high taxes and gun control.
This is what the NY Slimes calls the growth of higher education......which translates into, the growth of indoctrinated morons.

I need Katkuri to detail the traumatic event that made his so scared. Was he robbed? Shot at? Pistol whipped? Or are his only experience’s with guns when he sees cops and soldiers with them? If so, then he is exactly the type of uninformed voter that the Dem’s depend on.
On a side note, I’m curious to know how he came to be a US citizen and given the ability to vote.
and an increasing crime rate, to go with all of that. NoVa is experiencing some very significant gang violence.
Democrat’s are so effin’ dumb that it’s almost hard to believe.
Immigration due to the change in the immigration law in 1965 killed my country. We mind as well expect to live like people live in India due to idiots like the person interviewed for this article.
More proof that Churchill was right. “The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”
Democrats are parasites that consume their host.....once the host is nearly gone, they move on to a new host and consume that one.
Like the aliens in Independence Day. Shame so many don’t realize that.
Democrats will continue to foster the downward spiral of this nation as they allow unskilled, uneducated and parasitic immigration to continue rather than managed, skilled immigration as we had prior to the 1960s.
Corporations and colleges colluding to teplace every traditional American citizen voter. Bonus... how many trillions of trillions taxes did they avoid. Hint, even Warren’s medicare for all exept exemptoxrats plan would have been funded.
They do not care any more than the 30 year olds living off mom and dad do not care that they are milking the host.
The more we tolerate dependency, the more dependents will be created and the more socialist we will become.

Id like to thank the NYT for exposing the dirty little secret about U.S. immigration policy. These people are being brought into this country precisely because they even the most educated and successful among them are such docile peasants who wont even utter a peep as their government and corporate overlords push them around.
Taking a guess here. H1B worker, they get green cards, then citizenship a few years after taking our IT jobs. Of course their wives come with them and are almost always also hired and then have children who are automatically citizens.
Government jobs did it.
Vijay Katkuri says gun control is his most important issue. He fears being killed by a gun. Statistically he probably has less chance of being murdered than getting hit by lightening. He has a 1 in 100,000 chances of falling victim to lightning in a lifetime.
This neurotic, foreign, opportunistic un American parasite, and many more like him, is who threatens our 2A rights.
Out of my cold dead hands.
They drag in more since are they will hire only fellow Indians .
India dumping its population here just like China .
By the way, they voted 70 % for Hillary in 2016.
Look into the voting system they use. When INdiana decertified a certain voting system that could manipulate the vote by cell phone (2011) Virginia was using it and refused to also decertify the system. It is still being used.
