At the “Old South Ball” in Danville, Virginia Republican (of course) gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart declares Virginia the state of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, declares that “I’m proud to be next to the Confederate flag,” and claims the Confederate flag is “not about racism…hatred…slavery…it’s time that we embrace [our heritage].” So…does the Virginia GOP agree with this crap? Does it condemn it? Silence? What’s the deal?
