Trump has now endorsed Corey Stewart who won the Republican primary for the Senate in Virginia. He’s another extremist like Roy Moore. Like Trump, he thought the bigots in Virginia included good people. Even the Republicans in the Senate are not pushing this guy but Trump is.
The article states: “After the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in August, when one of the participants drove into a crowd and killed a counterprotester, most Virginia politicians specifically condemned the white supremacists and neo-Nazis who had organized and marched in the event. But Mr. Stewart adopted similar language to President Trump, saying that “half the violence” was the fault of the counterprotesters, including “far-left nut cases.”
“People condemned all those far-right agitators, but no one seemed to condemn the left wing,” he told WTOP, a Washington radio station. “Clearly, half of that violence was committed by left-wingers.”
He denounced other Republicans for apologizing and condemning the violence, saying they were playing into liberals’ hands.”
