Henrico County Dems Accuse Virginia House Speaker Kirk Cox (R) of Making “Same White Power Gesture That the New Zealand Terrorist Makes In His Court Appearance” [UPDATED: Henrico Dems Take It Down]

What do you think?


I can’t stand Virginia’s right-wingnut House Speaker Kirk Cox (R), of course, but I’m not sure what to make of this, from the Henrico County Democratic Committee’s Facebook page. What do you think? Is Cox innocently resting his hand that way, or is there something more insidious going on here? I mean, personally I’ve never viewed Cox as a white supremacist – I’ve viewed him as a lot of other bad things, including being a corrupt tool, pushing and defending racist policies, etc. – even if he leads the party that nominated white supremacist Corey Stewart for U.S. Senate last year. I also tend to doubt he even knows what a white supremacist hand symbol is. Anyway, let us know what you think, in the comments section, and/or vote in the poll below the screenshot.
