The Republicans just nominated alt-right, neo-Confederate Corey Stewart, a friend of Paul Nehlan, for Virginia’s US Senate seat. They nominated a theocratic, race-baiting child predator for Senate, Roy Moore, in Alabama. In other states, the Republicans have avoided the most embarrassing results. Coal baron who was convicted of safety violations connected to the deaths of 29 miners Don Blankenship lost the primary for the nomination for the West Virginia Senate seat. But the winner, as in most states, represented himself as a hardcore Trump supporter who professed his fealty.
The Republicans, of course, nominated Donald Trump for president and elected him to the office. Although the Republican’s national Senate organization has not endorsed Stewart, Trump, whom national Republicans have shown themselves incapable of resisting, praised the bigot heartily.
“Congratulations to Corey Stewart for his great victory for Senator from Virginia. Now he runs against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof,” Trump said.
Trump has a lot in common with Stewart, after all. They both called for imprisoning their political opponents. Trump has just come back from meeting with the worst dictator in the world, Kim Jong-Un, who does just that, and Trump praised him as “talented,” said “I trust him,” and denied the extent of Kim’s human rights abuses.
Corey Stewart said, “Robert E. Lee was a great man.” Trump morally equated Lee with George Washington.
Dennis Hof, an actual pimp who is running for Nevada’s state legislature as a Republican, said, “It’s all because Donald Trump was the Christopher Columbus for me.”
He’s inspired a lot of nut jobs even crazier than the Louie Gohmerts and Michelle Bachmanns whom the Tea Party had already inspired. Now Trumpism has conquered the Republican Party and wiped out conservatism.
