Corey Stewart on Civil Rights
Tim Kaine (D): Yes. In 2006 opposed VA amendment banning same sex marriage. "We're still fighting for full LGBT equality."
Corey Stewart (R): No. Strongly opposes; seeks to overturn Supreme Court legalization.
KAINE: Yes, it is. But look who won last year. It wasn`t the people who want to secede or go backwards who are winning elections.
Q: When you mayor of Richmond, you dealt with some of these questions about how to represent the Confederacy. The rallying point last year for the Unite the Right rally was the question of the removal of Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville.
KAINE: Charlottesville was not about statues. It was about hatred. It was about bigotry and division. This was not a save the statue rally. It was a Unite the Right rally. Statues don`t make you march around chanting, "Jews will not replace us." They don`t make you say "blood and soil" or other slogans from Nazi youth rallies. To say Charlottesville was about statues diminishes the gravity of it.
Said Stewart: "This is the state of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison and James Monroe. It's a state of the founders. It's the state of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution."
He added: "But it's also the state of Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson, and J.E.B. Stuart. Because, at the base of it, Virginians, we think for ourselves. And if the established order is wrong, we rebel. We did that in the Revolution, we did it in the Civil War, and we're doing it today. We're doing it today because they're trying to rob us of everything that we hold dear: our history, our heritage, our culture."
A: Stewart believes in traditional marriage between one man and one woman.ÿ
