“There is actually no need for violence in a constitutional republic,” Stewart told Breitbart News. He reiterated This particular message a short time after the interview during an address he gave about Saturday’s events in Charlottesville over Facebook Live.
“I’m not going to play their game,” Stewart said of the left, several members of the Democratic Party, as well as establishment Republicans, adding:
The left has been violently attacking conservative politicians as well as conservatives. as well as the left-wing mainstream media has been essentially condoning the idea. Democratic as well as additional left-leaning politicians very rarely ever condemn violence of which is actually perpetrated by the left. There’s a double standard as well as some hypocrisy here by the media, by the left as well as even by a lot of establishment Republicans.
We possess the violent left which recently attacked a U.S. Congressman [Steve Scalise], which has been attacking Trump supporters across the country, as well as I never hear Democratic politicians condemning them. I’m not going to play their game. I am not going to condemn anyone additional than the criminal. We always have to protect citizens who are trying to exercise their First Amendment rights. by my perspective, there were a lot of left-wing agitators who violently attacked citizens who were trying to espouse their views last night as well as today.
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), the House Majority Whip, was in intensive care having a life-threatening bullet wound through his hip after James T. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois opened fire on members of congress during a baseball practice in June.
Of Tim Kaine, Stewart said, “I find the idea reprehensible of which he stated he was proud of his son, who is actually a violent, left-wing agitator who was arrested in Minneapolis,” Stewart said. “as well as there is actually a great example of Tim Kaine as well as additional Democrats being complete hypocrites as they condemn right-wing violence however are silent, as well as are even proud, of the violence of which is actually perpetrated by left-wingers like Tim Kaine’s son who is actually a member of antifa.”
Kaine issued a statement about the “horrifying white supremacist demonstrations as well as violence in Charlottesville:”

Kaine’s son, Linwood Michael Kaine, 24, faced criminal charges for allegedly joining in an anti-Trump riot to attack supporters of President Donald Trump in Minneapolis This particular past March.
During his Facebook Live address, Stewart said, “The unhinged left, if you’ve noticed, They have never condemned their own violence,” adding, “not 1 word by Tim Kaine, not 1 word by the Democrats.”
He went on to say:
however of which also emphasizes the need to protect our constitutional right, especially our right to free expression. as well as I think of which one of the reasons why This particular rally was held inside the firts place is actually because people didn’t feel of which their constitutional rights as well as freedom of expression are being protected, because the left has been suppressing viewpoints of which the idea doesn’t agree with in This particular country. as well as of which’s how the idea should be.
Steward also noted, “We need an honest as well as fair press” of news reports coming out of CNN as well as MSNBC. “We are not seeing of which.”
Instead, Stewart stated his belief of which the left-wing media will use Saturday “as an excuse to further crack down on conservative speech. They will not only do the idea inside the universities, where they have created safe spaces.” He said the left is actually trying to turn the entire nation into a safe space, adding, “Gov. McCauliffe will try to make all of Virginia a safe place. All of those efforts will fail.”
In closing, Stewart said, “When I am the United States Senator by the commonwealth of Virginia I will always work to defend everyone’s free speech regardless of which end of the political spectrum the idea comes by; of which must be our goal. of which is actually the number one job of every single elected official here inside the United States. to protect the lives as well as rights of our citizens.”
