Corey Stewart Bashes ‘Wimpy’ Tim Kaine Over Antifa Son and Sandinista Support
A candidate for U.S. Senate from Virginia bashed his incumbent opponent for supporting the radical left, and for raising his son to do the same.
“Wimpy Tim Kaine is weak,” said Corey Stewart on Twitter. “He’s a far-left liberal who plays footsie with radical communists in central America. And the coconut doesn’t fall far from the tree. Here’s his radical leftist son, whose involvement with violent
#Antifa wimpy Tim celebrates.”
Sen. Tim Kaine’s (D-VA) son was arrested in Minneapolis, MN during a violent Antifa protest of a a pro-Trump rally in 2017.
The youngest son of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., was sentenced to a year of probation and ordered to pay $236 in fines and fees for resisting arrest after he and others disrupted a Minnesota rally in support of President Donald Trump.
Fireworks and smoke bombs were set off inside the capitol and several people were arrested. Minnesota state officers had to call for backup from St. Paul police.
Linwood Michael “Woody” Kaine, 25, of Minneapolis, was arrested outside the capitol and later charged with three misdemeanors.
Two of them — concealing identity and fleeing a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle — were dismissed Dec. 11, according to online court records for Ramsey County, Minn. Kaine pleaded guilty to obstructing legal process/interfering with a peace officer.
Stewart also referred to Kaine’s 1980’s support of Nicaraguan Sandinistas in Central America.
“In recent weeks, Nicaragua has descended into violence and chaos,” wrote The Hill in July. “Driving that collapse has been the long-held Marxist, dictatorial instincts and brutal tactics of its president, Daniel Ortega.”
Stewart rightly pointed out, as did The Hill, that it was weak leftist policy led by Kaine, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and John Kerry who allowed the Sandinistas to rise to power.
“Throughout the 1980s, support of Nicaragua’s Soviet-aligned Sandinista regime was the darling of leftist Americans, left-wing American politicians and those around the world who sought to harmonize Christianity and Marxism through liberation theology,” The Hill wrote.
According to the piece, Kaine offered his support to a prominent Sandinista priest who would later be killed during an invasion of Honduras, led by a Che Guevara protégé.
“Politicians who shilled for the Sandinistas in the 1980s should have condemned their human rights violations then, and certainly should do so now. Having manned the ramparts with the Sandinistas in the 1980s, Bill De Blasio, Bernie Sanders, John Kerry and Tim Kaine cannot maintain silence on this matter and moral credibility too,” the piece said.
Once a radical leftist, always a radical leftist.
