The victory of Corey Stewart in the Virginia Republican Senate primary has led to the greatest outbreak of Main Stream Media wailing since Donald Trump won the GOP nomination for the presidency. The hoaxsters over at Rolling Stone whined, “Virginia Republicans Are Rallying Behind A True Bigot: Corey Stewart.” [by Tim Dickinson, June 14, 2018] Vox explains to its audience of bugmen that the new GOP nominee is an “alt right hero.” [Virginia Republicans just nominated an alt-right hero to run for Senateby Jane Coaston, June 13, 2018] And CNN, trying to be as objective as it can be, simply says Stewart “built his public image on championing Confederate symbols”.

Yet despite wailing from journalists, Stewart is hardly outside the mainstream, especially on the Confederate monumentissue. According to a study published in January 2018, a plurality of Virginia voters support keeping the Confederate monuments where they are, with 49 percent arguing for the status quo and 33 percent saying they should be removed, either by being relocated to museums or presumably destroyed [VCU Poll: Nearly half of Virginians want Confederate monuments left in placeby Ned Oliver, Richmond Times-Dispatch, January 9, 2018]. And GOP Establishment favorite Ed Gillespie, largely because of pressure from Stewart, also defended Confederate monuments at the last minute during the 2017 Virginia gubernatorial primary. It’s journalists who think the status quo is beyond the pale that are being extreme.
