VA GOP chair sides with Alt-Right: Bigotry must stop ‘100%’ but ‘you can’t just eradicate’ Confederate statues

Republican Party of Virginia Chairman John Whitbeck said on Monday that he abhorred racism but he insisted that Civil War statues that remind so many of slavery in the United States should be left alone.“You can’t emphatically enough denounce these groups,” Whitbeck remarked. “I mean, you have to be as unequivocal as you can be. Our party has always stood for equal justice. And our Republican

elected officials and our party leaders have been saying this message all along as Americans, as Virginians.” “That has become a big issue. Where do you stand?” Blitzer asked. “Where does the Republican Party of Virginia stand on that Robert E. Lee statue?” “I think our nominee for governor, Ed Gillespie, has spoken about this,” Whitbeck stuttered. “And we stand will our nominee 100 percent.”
