Check out the video, below, of neo-Confederate nutjob and 2018 Virginia GOP U.S. Senate candidate Corey Stewart, tossing his usual far-right red meat to Republicans in Arlington, which Corey – with his usual subtlety and tact, LOL – called “occupied territory” full of “left-wing lunatics.”
Among other fascinating comments, Corey vowed yet again to “run the most vicious, ruthless, aggressive and brutal race against a Democrat that you have ever seen” (APPLAUSE from the Arlington Republicans – they absolutely eat up this viciousness!). Corey did point out, correctly (for once), that none of his GOP primary opponents (just-as-crazy-as-Corey-in-their-own-unique-ways “Paulbot” Nick Freitas and theocratic bigot Ewww Jackson) “has ever won a single election in Northern Virginia – not one.”
Now here’s a good conspiracy theory for you: Corey claimed that Virginia Democrats won in 2017 because “left-wing billionaires from the left coast” poured resources into “little” House of Delegates races, also “bused people in from New York, New Jersey, Maryland” (anyone hear a bit of a “dog whistle” here?), but in 2018 Democrats supposedly aren’t going to spend any resources on Virginia and “we’re going to kick their teeth out in 2018.”
Finally, gotta love this one: asked if he would do anything about Facebook, Corey said he would. Why? Not because of privacy intrusions or threats to our democracy, but…wait for it…because supposedly Facebook, Google, etc. specifically limit conservative speech (he gave the example of Googling “gun control” and “Chicago” and how the truth about the “high crime” and “gun control” connection has been suppressed). Yep, that’s the leading contender for the VA GOP’s 2018 U.S. Senate nomination, and a perfect illustration of how far off into John Birch Society loony-land today’s Republicans have lurched. Let’s not just beat them in November, let’s crush them.
