A Trump Campaign Chair Just Defended The Confederacy And It Instantly Backfired

Yesterday, at the direction of Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the City of New Orleans began the process of removing four statues commemorating the Confederacy’s fight to protect a state’s right to freely enslave human beings of African decent. (That is the stated purpose, but one statue included the inscription, “the national election of 1876 recognized white supremacy in the south and gave us our state.“)

Among the many who were enraged by the removal is Virginia gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart who served as President Trump’s campaign chair for the state. He recently tweeted his outrage and Twitter is has been throwing it back in his face ever since

It wasn’t difficult for people to come up with things considerably worse than Stewart’s worst-case scenario, and yet, they still found a way to make it entertaining and educational. Stewart would do well to take the responses to heart.

Stewart, for his part, remained obstinate in maintaining his ignorance.

And Twitter continued to call him out for it. Let’s hope it never stops.
