The Washington Post is running hard with the narrative that pro-Trump Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart wore a Confederate uniform to a formal event, even though Stewart has told the newspaper that he was actually wearing a traditional Scottish kilt uniform.
Stewart, who worked on the Trump campaign as Virginia state director for most of the election, is running against Bush administration RNC chairman Ed Gillespie in next month’s primary, in which the polls are tightening and the race is up for grabs. Stewart is fighting against the removal of Confederate monuments in Virginia, in addition to his promised crackdown on illegal immigration and Trump-style tax cuts. The liberal establishment Washington Post, meanwhile, is accusing him of playing Confederate dress-up.
“The Washington Post has tried to take me down for years,” Stewart told Big League Politics. “When I led the nation’s toughest crackdown on criminal illegal aliens in 2007, they labeled me as a bigot and racist and said I would never be reelected” as at-large chairman of the Prince William County board of supervisors. “When I was reelected by an even larger margin, they claimed that I was exploiting people’s fears of immigrants. None of this worked, and the 454,000 residents of Prince William County have elected and reelected me four times. The Post has resorted to outright lies. The most recent example is claiming that I dressed up in an outfit “approximating a civil war dress uniform.” The truth was that the outfit was a kilt tuxedo top. They knew this before writing the story, but they wrote it anyway. I am not surprised by any lie or distortion that Washington Post prints.”
Stewart did, indeed, appear at a traditional Old South Ball where the Confederate flag was displayed, but he was not dressed in a Confederate uniform. He was clearly wearing a kilt tuxedo top.
Washington Post reporter Laura Vozzella wrote a piece on April 11 entitled “Did a Republican running for Va. governor really dress up like a Confederate gent?”
As with most headlines that end in a question mark, the answer, in reality, was no.
Vozzella wrote, “For a minute there, it looked like Corey Stewart’s bid for Virginia governor had morphed him from Confederate flag-waver to fully costumed Confederate reenactor. He turned up at the Old South Ball in Danville during the weekend, sporting a bow tie and dark bolero jacket bedecked with lots of shiny buttons. In a video he posted online, the former chairman of President Trump’s Virginia campaign looked right at home with all of the women in hoop skirts and men in Civil War-era uniforms.” Vozzella then proceeded to quote Stewart, who is Scottish, in the article calling the dress a Scottish kilt.
Stewart campaign representative Noel Fritsch sent a series of emails to Post staff pushing for retractions, but the narrative continued.
Petula Dvorak wrote in the Post last Tuesday, “Stewart, who is also chairman of the Board of County Supervisors, even dressed as a Confederate reenactor and then had his campaign fly his banner along with a Confederate flag behind an airplane.”
Vozzella wrote another piece Saturday entitled “Do Corey Stewart’s Confederate antics help Ed Gillespie or hurt the GOP brand?”
Vozzella writes that “Stewart held multiple rallies for the monument, unfurled the Confederate flag at other events and attended an Old South ball in an outfit approximating a Civil War dress uniform. Along the way, he gave an interview to Mike Cernovich, the alt-right Internet figure who helped popularize the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory. The alt-right is a small, far-right movement that seeks a whites-only state. Adherents of the alt-right are known for espousing racist, anti-Semitic and sexist points of view.”
Writer Cernovich, of course, does not seek a “whites-only state,” and Stewart’s outfit did not approximate a “Civil War dress uniform.”
Big League Politics reached out to Post editors and to Vozzella and Dvorak about the false claim. Vozzella’s reply is shocking in its candor.
“Hi. I described the outfit in detail here,” Vozzella told Big League Politics, linking to her first article. “In a more recent story, I did not go into all that detail. I just said he wore “something approximating” a period outfit. Corey questioned that description. Below is my response: ‘When we [talked] about it, you’d said how it was the best you could come up with on short notice — meaning, I thought, that you were trying to put together something that could pass for a period outfit out of what you had in your closet.”
Asked if she thought a Scottish kilt and a Confederate uniform are the same thing — because both were primarily worn by white people and because the Scots are still under British occupation — Vozzella replied, “No, I don’t think a kilt is the same as a Confederate uniform. And Corey did not wear his kilt. He took his kilt jacket and paired it with slacks, an ensemble he described to me as something that would fit in at the Old South Ball: ‘It’s the best I could do on short notice.'”
Pressed with the fact that Mike Cernovich has never advocated for a “whites only state,” Vozzella did not reply further.
WAHHHH: Georgia Election Official Whines Over Growing Anger Against Officials Signing Off on Fraud
What a crybaby.
Gabriel Sterling, a top official in the Georgia secretary of state’s office, released a whiny rant on Tuesday in which he lamented over the anger that is building against state Republican officials who are doggedly preventing electoral irregularities from being investigated.
“It’s all gone too far. All of it,” the Georgia election worker said. “Joe DiGenova today asked for Chris Krebs, a patriot who ran CISA, to be shot.”
“A 20-something tech in Gwinnett County today has death threats and a noose saying they should be hung for treason because she was transferring a report on batches,” he added.
This bum is calling for President Donald Trump to stop his quest to root out election fraud because of the hurt feelings of these snowflake bureaucrats.
“It has to stop! Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop! We need you to step up, and, if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some,” the angry little man said.
He whined about the pressure that Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is receiving after becoming a nationally-reviled figure for stopping inquiry into Georgia’s corrupt electoral process.
“This is elections. This is the backbone of our democracy, and all of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this. I can’t begin to explain the level of anger I have right now over this,” the triggered coward said. “And every American, every Georgian, Republican or Democrat alike, should have that same level of anger.”
He ended by blaming President Trump for his state’s own corrupt farce while calling for him to stop his quest to overturn the steal in order to protect culpable officials from imaginary violence.
“You have the rights to go through the courts. What you don’t have the ability to do, and you need to step up and say this, is stop inspiring people to commit potential acts of violence. Someone’s going to get hurt. Someone’s going to get shot, or someone’s going to get killed, and it’s not right,” he concluded.
His entire beta male rant can be seen here:

Sterling’s extreme cowardice is laughable, but his entitlement and arrogance is absolutely nauseating. The Founding Fathers would have certainly been much more radical toward vote stealers than President Trump and his supporters have been, by a wide margin.
Big League Politics has reported about the sad debacle in Georgia, which has disenfranchised Republican voters in the state unlike anything before:
A Fulton County, Georgia woman is describing handling a “pristine” batch of ballots that were marked “98%” of the time for Joe Biden in election recount duties, describing the suspicious phenomenon in a sworn affidavit.
Susan Voyles identifies herself as a participant in Georgia’s post-election recount in the affidavit, filed in litigation against Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger by Trump campaign attorney Lin Wood.
Voyles describes seeing ballots that differed considerably from the other ballots she was entrusted to count in the remix.
Voyles describes the batch of ballots as unusual in their texture and level of handling, and that she estimates 98% of them were cast for Joe Biden. Voyles even speculates that these ballots could’ve been processed through a ballot-marking device!
Voyles earlier described election recount supervisors as tasking them to process ballots in a “selective” fashion. Boxes of absentee ballots were signed by no one, without markings one might expect the Georgia Secretary of State to outfit absentee ballots with.
Another witness describes viewing election workers count 500 straight ballots for Joe Biden, all of which were marked with perfect black bubbles.
Trump and his supporters must not yield an inch, now that these crooked officials are feeling the heat. They are making major headway in pushing back against the steal, and the bad guys are getting frightened as a result!
