Candidate for Senate Corey Stewart has called anti-Semite Paul Nehlen
one of his heroes,
“One of my personal heroes, not from Virginia, but from the great state of Wisconsin, there is Paul Nehlen, who had a lot of courage and took on Speaker Ryan,” Stewart says, turning to Nehlen. “And I can’t tell you how much I was inspired by you.
This video was posted on Corey’s Facebook page in February 2017:
Nehlen has begun tweeting out pictures of an anti-Semitic book he’s reading, as well as tropes about American foreign policy putting Israel first,” Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro wrote in December. “He’s retweeted ‘anuddah shoah’ jokes, favorites among the anti-Semitic alt-right, and he’s told Commentary magazine editor John Podhoretz to ‘eat a bullet.’ And back in August, he retweeted a series of images from the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.”
Shortly after, Nehlen was banned from Twitter after tweeting a photo of Meghan Markle photoshopped to resemble Cheddar man, a dark-skinned stone-age man discovered in Britain, with a caption that read, “Honey, does this tie make my face look pale?”
In February, Wisconsin GOP Chair Alec Zimmerman announced that Nehlen “is not a member of the Republican Party of Wisconsin,” and that Nehlen and his ideas “have no place in the Republican Party.”
If that’s not enough, Stewart recently praised his volunteer of the week, Ian MacDonald:
The problem with MacDonald is he identifies with white supremacist and founder of the American Nazi Party George Lincoln Rockwell.
UPDATE: (Ian MacDonald tells he had no idea whose picture he was posting. When he learned who it was, he deleted it.)
So we have candidate Corey Stewart praising a well known anti-semite and a young man who identifies himself as George Lincoln Rockwell, founder of the American Nazi Party. And he wants to represent the Republican party challenging Tim Kaine for the US Senate? No, just no. He’s an embarrassment.
You can’t make this stuff up.
