The race would have been quite interesting if the Republican was anti-establishment firebrand Corey Stewart. Instead, the Republican party elites ordained Ed Gillespie as the chosen “moderate” to run a cucked campaign of boring, centrist, “moderacy.”

As these recent tweets from CNN’s “Republican” commentator Ana Navarro lay bare, immigration is a tool of conquest:
This is what passes for “politics” in the current year.
