“It’s Time to Denounce”
I am Corey Stewart, Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia in the Republican Primary election on June 13.
There have been a lot of politicians denouncing things this weekend. And I would like to denounce a few things myself.
I denounce fake news, like the Washington Post, who lie to Virginians and use political correctness as a weapon to shame, ridicule, and silence Americans.
I denounce weak establishment Republicans, like Ed Gillespie, who refuse to stand up for life, our 2nd Amendment and other constitutional rights, our heritage, and our President.
I denounce sanctuary cities, like Richmond and Fairfax County, who harbor MS-13 gang members and other illegal aliens who commit crimes against our families and take our jobs.
I denounce greedy corporate monopolies, like Dominion Virginia Power, who destroy neighborhoods and trample on our property rights.
I denounce Terry McAuliffe, who sits on his hands while working Virginians of all races, in all parts of Virginia, struggle as thousands of jobs leave our Commonwealth.
I denounce bigotry and bigots, like Charlottesville City Councilman Wes Bellamy, who foment racial hatred.
I denounce hypocrites, like Ralph Northam and Tom Perriello, who refuse to acknowledge the long history of racism within the Democratic Party and denounce racist Democrats like Wes Bellamy.
It’s time to stop apologizing. It’s time to stop running away. It’s time to stand up for Virginia.
I love Virginia. I admire its people. I respect its industry. I marvel at its beauty. And I treasure its history and heritage. All these things I pledge to protect, using every power available to me as Governor of Virginia. And I will never back down! Let’s take back Virginia on June 13. God bless you and your families.
Let’s take back Virginia!
