On Saturday, Corey Stewart, Sen. Tim Kaine’s Republican challenger, condemned the violence which resulted in the murder of three people at the “white nationalist” demonstration, along with the “counterprotesters” including Antifa, on Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.
And then Stewart threw shade at Sen. Kaine, wondering why he was furious about the Virginia riots, but completely silent when his own son perpetrated violence against Trump supporters during the January 20th Inauguration of President Donald Trump.
“There is no need for violence in a constitutional republic,” Stewart said. He reiterated this message a short time after the interview during an address he gave about Saturday’s events in Charlottesville over Facebook Live.
“I’m not going to play their game,” Stewart said of the left, several members of the Democratic Party, and establishment Republicans, adding:
“The left has been violently attacking conservative politicians and conservatives. And the left-wing mainstream media has been essentially condoning it. Democratic and other left-leaning politicians very rarely ever condemn violence that is perpetrated by the left. There’s a double standard and some hypocrisy here by the media, by the left and even by a lot of establishment Republicans.
“We have the violent left which recently attacked a U.S. Congressman [Steve Scalise], which has been attacking Trump supporters across the country, and I never hear Democratic politicians condemning them. I’m not going to play their game. I am not going to condemn anyone other than the criminal. We always have to protect citizens who are trying to exercise their First Amendment rights. From my perspective, there were a lot of left-wing agitators who violently attacked citizens who were trying to espouse their views last night and today.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the House Majority Whip, was in intensive care with a life-threatening bullet wound through his hip after James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on members of congress during a baseball practice in June.
Of Tim Kaine, Stewart said, “I find it reprehensible that he stated he was proud of his son, who is a violent, left-wing agitator who was arrested in Minneapolis,” Stewart said. “And there is a great example of Tim Kaine and other Democrats being complete hypocrites as they condemn right-wing violence but are silent, and are even proud, of the violence that is perpetrated by left-wingers like Tim Kaine’s son who is a member of antifa.”
