Conservative leaders in Prince William County can no longer be silent. Corey Stewart’s values are not conservative values, nor are they Republican values, nor are they Virginia values. The use of racially charged language to further his gubernatorial campaign is divisive, racially motivated, and wrong.
Late Thursday night Corey Stewart referred to his opponent Ed Gillespie as a “cuckservative.”
The term is an accusation by the alt-right of being a race traitor, because supporting tolerance and diversity means weakening the power of “White Americans” (hence, cuckolding yourself). Corey Stewart is explicitly wrapping himself in White Nationalism, and accusing Ed Gillespie of insufficiently prioritizing whites over other races.
For Stewart to attack a fellow Republican for not holding the white race in a position of racial supremacy is unconscionable. Such language is not representative of Prince William County, our values, or of Virginians across the Commonwealth. Corey Stewart has disqualified himself as a candidate in the gubernatorial primary.
This week’s appalling actions follow weeks of hypocrisy, segregationist and explosive behavior that is unbecoming of a Republican leader in Virginia. CLICK HERE to read more.
I am horrified by the dangerous ways Corey Stewart has embraced the white supremacist movement. America was founded on the promise that everyone is equal under the law and has unalienable rights given to us by our Creator. Our nation was built on this revolutionary idea, not on preferring any race or group of people. For Corey Stewart to attack a fellow Republican for not preferring the white race is unconscionable. It should disqualify him as a candidate in the Gubernatorial primary, and it is clearly time for him to step down as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Prince William County.
