Roy Moore Proves GOP Faux Outrage Over Weinstein was Just That: Fake
Assuming you EVER needed proof in the first place. After all, the Hollywood Access video proved that they could care less about sexual harassment. Now you hear some Republicans say ‘better a sexual harasser than a Democrat.
Then there is the Jesus Christ analogy. Wish I was kidding:
“Speaking with CNN, Jerry Moore declares his brother’s innocence, arguing that the Senate hopeful never had dalliances with underage girls as the Washington Post first reported Thursday. “The allegations against Roy Moore are not true, not true at all,” Jerry says before engaging in a little impromptu deification. Moore is facing persecution, his brother says, “like Jesus Christ was.”
“But while everyone has their cross to bear, and suffering is a necessary prerequisite to sanctification, no one has had God the Father turn his face away. As awful as the allegations are against Moore, his trials pale completely in comparison to Christ. Alabama politics is nothing like Calvary.”
“Unfortunately, the brother is not alone in his divine comparisons. In an earlier interview with the Washington Examiner, Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler not only seemed to confirm Moore had a thing for younger women, he also compared those relationships to scripture.”
“Take the Bible. Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance. Zachariah was extremely old to marry Elizabeth and they became the parents of John the Baptist,” Zeigler said choosing his words carefully before invoking Christ. “Also take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”
So basically pedophilia is alright so long as it’s not a Democrat. Some GOPers warn the Republicans they’ll lose their moral authority if they keep this up to criticize Democrats!
I mean when has this party ever had any moral authority on sexual misconduct? They have opposed domestic violence bills and workplace sexual harassment laws. The only time they have a problem with it is if a prominent Democrat gets accused.
For them concerns about sexual misconduct are solely about criticizing Democrats for hypocrisy. Because the Democrats actually oppose sexual misconduct in principle so when someone in the party is found guilty of such misconduct they cries of hypocrisy from the GOP are deafening.
But the GOP has never taken a principled stand against it in the first place.
You heard a lot of GOPers saying that Moore should step down ‘if it was true.’ Of course, they never added that qualifier to Harvey Weinstein.
For his part, Moore met with Hannity and made: a bunch of non denial denials.
HANNITY: Do you remember dating girls that young?
MOORE: "Not generally, no"

Roy Moore says "I don't remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother"

For more see:
His defenders compare him to Jesus and all you can say to this non denial denial is ‘Jesus Christ!’
He is saying he doesn’t remember-but maybe if their mother gave him permission?!
And the GOP Senate Committee is-finally-done with him.
We keep hearing that the nation is no longer tolerating sexual misconduct by powerful men. I’m waiting for some proof in the pudding: when is Trump going to be held accountable?
And if Moore is still elected by Alabamans what’s the takeaway there?
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
And please donate so we can compete with Peter King’s $4 million. I know no lobbyists or millionaires like Peter King. Small donations are the engine of the Mike Sax NY2 campaign. Together we can do it. Because we must.
