BREAKING: Trump Virginia State Director Corey Stewart Fired for Protesting RNC


Couldn’t have happened to a nastier guy than Corey Stewart the immigrant-bashing, demagogic thug of Prince William County and the (former) Virginia State Director for neo-fascist Donald Trump. I saw a bit of the protest at the Republican National Committee (RNC), seemed to be mostly (a handful of) people yelling crazy things like “lock her up” about Hillary Clinton. Also, gotta love Stewart’s post about starting “a rebellion against GOP establishment pukes who betrayed Trump.” Who uses words like “pukes,” by the way? What a deeply weird dude.

    DPVA Statement on Virginia Trump Chairman and Gubernatorial Candidate Corey Stewart Protesting the RNC

    The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement in response to gubernatorial candidate and Trump’s Virginia Chairman protesting the Republican National Committee headquarters:

    “The Republican Party is imploding nationally and Corey Stewart is leading the destruction here in Virginia. This didn’t happen overnight – Trump’s rise is a result of the Republican Party’s strategy of appealing to people’s fears. Donald Trump is a disgrace and those who stand by him and defend him will be paying the price for years to come, not just with women, but within their own party.”

    It’s Past Time for Republicans to Rescind Their Endorsement: A Letter to Ed Gillespie, Rob Wittman, and Frank Wagner

    Over two dozen national Republicans have withdrawn their endorsements of Donald Trump, but Virginia Republicans running for governor are still standing in his corner.

    Please see below for a letter to Ed Gillespie, Rob Wittman, and Frank Wagner from Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker calling on them to rescind their endorsements.


    To: Republican Gubernatorial Candidates
    From: Susan Swecker, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Virginia

    To Ed Gillespie, Rob Wittman, and Frank Wagner: it’s time to follow your moral compass and revoke your endorsement of Donald Trump. Your candidate’s latest bombshell is absolutely abhorrent and unbecoming for any respectable human being, let alone someone running to be President of the United States.

    I won’t write his words here – they are beyond the pale and frankly too sickening to repeat; but I will say this – they are unforgivable. Republicans, Democrats, and Independents must all reject this repulsive narrative that is all too familiar for Donald Trump.

    Perpetuating sexual assault as normalized behavior is not “locker room banter,” it is an outright disgrace. Since when does the Republican Party condone groping and degrading women?

    How can you, fathers, brothers, and husbands, stand by this man that demeans and objectifies women so casually? Is Donald Trump the role model you want for your children?

    Look at your wife, look at your daughters, and try to explain how you can continue to support Donald Trump. Put your party allegiance aside and let your conscience take over – condemning what he said is not enough; it’s obvious the man is fundamentally unfit for office.

    It is inconceivable to think that you will continue to vote for this reprehensible man. Mr. Trump’s candidacy is a poisonous mix of misogyny and ignorance, and if elected he would pollute the standards that make the American president the most respected figure in the world.

    Merely condemning your candidate is meaningless posturing if you continue to endorse him. If you expect to ever govern the people of Virginia, including millions of women and girls, you have to do more. Virginia values are simply not compatible with Trump’s words, and our Commonwealth deserves better than someone who blindly supports him.

    I ask you to disavow this candidate once and for all. If you truly revere family values, rescind your endorsement today. Enough is enough.

    Democratic Latino Organization of Virginia (DLOV):

    RNC fires Corey Stewart. Virginians should too.

    Corey Stewart epitomizes the inflammatory behavior that has been tolerated and often encouraged by Donald Trump over the course of his campaign. In Virginia, we know Corey Stewart’s bigotry and divisiveness all too well. From his failure to rebuke attacks on the Gold Star Kahn family, to his anti-immigrant rhetoric in Prince William County, he reminds us that we cannot trust Trump or his surrogates with leadership of our Commonwealth or our nation.

    While his firing is just another symptom of the Trump campaign’s unraveling, this is not an excuse for Democrats to become unfocused. We must continue to work hard to register Latino voters and turn out the vote for Hillary Clinton on November 8. Let’s send a strong signal that indeed Love Trumps Hate.

    Marvin B. Figueroa
    DLOV President

    I live in a heavily Republican rural VA county. I honestly am afraid of armed violence by Trump supporters on or after Nov 9.

    On my big ol’ gas-guzzling F250 is a Clinton-Kaine bumper sticker along with a “Proud to be a Democrat” sticker. Over the past few weeks, I have been cursed at, spit at, and told “someone ought to shoot all you f’ing liberals.”

    I’ve seen more than one vehicle in my county sporting bumper sticker: “Trump the Bitch,” “Lock her up,” “Hillary for prison 2016,” and the like.

    There are some seriously deranged people out that along with some who are right on the edge. Some/many/most/all of them have guns and Trump is stirring them up with every word he utters.

      Scary times…and you’re absolutely right, the most “deplorable” of Trump supporters are not going to take his defeat well.

      I’ve had a similar instances in deep blue Falls Church-Arlington-eastern Fairfax. I can only imagine what I’d encounter down near Culpepper or further south.

      I truly apologize for the actions of those supporters. Those actions are never acceptable. To date I’ve only seen those kinds of actions (and pictures of victims) coming from Hillary supporters. The supporters of Trump that I know in Raleigh (and I know many) are kind leaders in the community and do not have guns. To me, Trump is like a house Dr who comes to your house, tells you that you need to lose 100 pounds, stop eating this or that and then he leaves and you start calling him crazy. That’s when you realize, however that he is the only one telling you the truth. Churchill was such a guy. Spoke out on the dangers of communism but people called him that crazy fat man. As Communism began taking over and they saw its destruction,, they began asking”where is the crazy fat man?” He ended up saving Europe. Lincoln saved slaves. I believe Trump is neither democrat or republican but a constitutionalist (look at his supreme Court 20 nominees) . He’s a pragmatist, someone who isn’t tethered to others, isn’t run by emotion, and simply looks at problems to solve them. He’s a business man, not a politician. This is exactly what we need because America has been going in the wing direction for too long. Too much corruption. I am probably changing from republican to independent after this to send a message to Washington that I’m done with all elite. Just maybe we will vote on the person from now on. Just maybe the new party will be those who are constitutionalists, where the liberty, rights, and freedom is the rule of the day and government is run by the states and counties, not big gov, big pharma, globalists who want control us all. (I’ve read of hundreds of horror stories of lives ruined by that.) We are most divided since the cival war and we know that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. Just maybe we will humble ourselves (to God and then each other) so that hard hearts will once again become soft and can actually heal. I’ve seen that on a small scale during my life and pray that will happen everywhere.

        This seems like parody on one level, but then again, so does the entire Trump campaign! LOL

    Corey Stewart’s political career is O-VER.
