Ed Gillespie's support for bigotry on full display this afternoon in NOVA

Oct 13, 2017

This afternoon the same Ed Gillespie who has been accused of “stoking racial fears” by launching “super-racist, anti-immigrant” attack ads plans to attend a Dulles-area Muslim society meeting, a move that will put his previous support for bigotry on full display.

This year, Gillespie has refused to criticize Trump’s Muslim Ban, tacitly approving an effort that was effectively “government-sanctioned discrimination” of Muslims. And just days before his primary, Gillespie refused to denounce an anti-Muslim activist who touted the need to preserve Judeo-Christian culture. The group he worked for was labeled an extremist group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

American Bridge spokesperson Lizzy Price made the following statement:

“Virginia voters won’t be deceived by Ed Gillespie – he has stood by Trump at every turn and has approved of his racist Muslim ban and divisive and disgusting language.  Gillespie won’t stand up for all Virginians – he’ll stand up for whoever supports him, no matter how vile and un-American their beliefs are.”
