Corey Stewart also made a homophobic attack on a Democratic candidate for the House.

...............................
On Sunday night, Trump-style populist Corey Stewart blasted Democrats, saying every one of them fits into one of four basic categories: “Criminals, communists, crackheads and weirdos.”

Stewart then lashed out at Danica Roem, a Democratic transgender candidate for the House, whom he referred to as a “weirdo.” In remarks reported by the Richmond Times-Dispatch, Stewart said Roem wants to “teach ‘transgenderism’ in kindergarten — kindergartners! Folks, this is what’s coming. This is the war on our culture.”

He also called Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat up for re-election, a “schmuck” and a “scumbag.”

Stewart made these comments at a Bikers for Trump rally as part of an effort to get out the vote and support the ticket for the Virginia governor’s race on Nov. 7....................................................

“So that’s who the Democrats honor: crackheads,” Stewart told the crowd in an auditorium that was decorated with signs saying “Hillary Clinton for prison in 2018.”

“Who do we honor?” Stewart asked. “Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, J.E.B. Stuart, James Madison, George Washington ― all the great heroes. The weirdos are taking down those monuments.”........................................
