Corey Stewart is the Face of the Republican Party in Virginia
by Stan Scott
Corey Stewart is now the face of the Republican Party in Virginia -- its primary voters chose this defender of treasonous Americans to carry their flag against Tim Kaine. This demonstrates their commitment to using the power of the state to protect discrimination against minorities. Their support for Corey Stewart says all you need to know about those who control the Republican Party in the Commonwealth.
Corey Stewart, like Donald Trump, is a racist. He defends the honor of men who betrayed their oaths to the Constitution and fought instead for the right of local plantation elites to use the power of the State to protect slavery - the literal power to own human beings. This was no honorable cause, and men like Robert E. Lee deserve no honorable memoriam.
Virginia conservatives of all types will work and vote for Stewart in the end anyway. Some simply share his racist views. They want him to use the office to protect them from contact and competition with people of color.
Those who don't will still happily support a neo-confederate racist for election to the US Senate because they know he agrees with them on policy. Stewart would vote to cut taxes on the wealthy and regulation of corporate power. He would vote to confirm judges who would uphold voter suppression laws, overturn Roe v Wade, protect corporations from regulation, and protect the right to discriminate on religious grounds.
The Virginia GOP has its nominee for US Senate. He’s a white supremacist and a racist. They might as well own it.
