Hate and racism in Virginia’s governor race

Corey Stewart and the only flag he serves under.

A hate-filled county supervisor who proudly declared himself a “Trump Mini-Me’ in Virginia Tuesday came within one percentage point of becoming the Commonwealth’s Republican candidate for governor in a November general election this year.

Corey Stewart bragged about his goals of disruption and hate.

“There is one word you will never hear from me, and that’s unity,” Stewart said in his campaign. “We’ve been backing down too long. We’ve been backing down too long in defense of our culture, and our heritage and our country.”

White nationalists flocked to Stewart’s campaign of protection of Confederate monuments and hatred of immigrants.

He promises to serve only those of his color and calls immigrants and others of differing faiths, genders and races “those others who are not worthy.”

He promises “to continue the revolution that Donald Trump started.”  He won’t, however, be doing it as governor of Virginia.  He was the Virginia co-chair of Trump’s campaign but was fired for participating in a protest outside the Republican National Committee offices in Washington.

Stewart also defended Trump after release of a video showing the future President making lewd remarks about women.

“No big deal,” Stewart said at the time.  “He acted like a frat boy, as a lot of guys do.”

“The only revolution he wants to continue is an expansion of blatant racism,” says Virginia voter Corrine Clevine.  “He’s an Neanderthal in a state where the primates come out and vote when one of their own stands upright and screams hate and bigotry.”

“Stewart claims to speak for people like me,” says Sam Travers, a truck driver from Prince William County, where Stewart is a county supervisor.  “He ain’t speaking for me.  He ain’t speaking for my family.  He’s a moron.”

Former Virginia Republican chairman Shaun Kenney said Stewart chose high-level negativity to “drive down turnout to the fanatical base and lean on that base to turn out.  Negative campaigning always does well and Corey’s strategy, though not honorable, was his planned path to victory.”

Stewart proudly flew the Confederate flag at his rallies and showed up often in Charlottesville, where local officials want to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee from the city’s downtown.

“You had to ask if he was running for the president of the Confederacy or governor of Virginia,” declared George Mason University political science professor Mark Rozell.

Former Virginia Republican Congressman Tom Davis says “the Republican Party if moving from the country club to the country.”

A better way to put it may be that the Republican Party is heading out the back door and into the backwoods where it belongs.

  1. Racist, hatefilled speech worked for tRump so Stewart little thought it would work for him. Unfortunately many many racist politicians dress in nice but are still racist no matter how well they speak

  2. He is just a stupid ignorant dumb racist moron. The quicker he go away and never be heard of is the best thing that can happen. He needs to go down.

  3. “… We’ve been backing down too long in defense of our culture, and our heritage and our country.”

    You might ask the Iroquois about that. What makes you think it’s your country, paleface? J.

      • I knew someone would say that, probably trolling, but here goes:

        So you took it away from someone else, and now you’re pissed off that someone’s taking it away from you? Real reasonable, that. Enjoy your reservation.

        J.

  4. Perhaps people need to re-read Aesop’s “The Four Oxen and the Lion,” “A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them.

    At last, however, they fell a-quarrelling among themselves, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by one and soon made an end of all four.

    United we stand, divided we fall.”

  5. The Confederate Battle flag is the flag of TREASON. If your proud of this flag then understand what it represents and its not pride it’s Injustice and treason.
