Roy S. Moore is a particularly officious member of the human race. And his issues are not about party — though he is a spanking white Republican — but rather about being a respectful, compassionate and worthy member of the clan. And that’s “clan” with a “c” and not with a “k” although Roy S. Moore knows bit about that, too.
Moore is the disgraced Alabama Supreme Court Justice who is running for the Republican Senate seat in his home state. His record is appalling: he has twice been removed from the Supreme Court, once because he refused to remove a plaque of the Ten commandments from the court, and then again for his refusal to accept the law allowing gay marriage. mind you he defied the law of the land although he was a judge.
Worse – though it seems almost impossible to top that — is his apparent involvement in sexual misconduct with underage girls. There are five young women who have come forth already, and more may follow. Roy S. Moore denies any involvement and says it’s all a witch hunt. Hardly anyone outside the lowest levels of education in Alabama believes that. His supporters — a scurvy lot at best — are actually raising money for the campaign by trying to defame Roy S. Moore’s accusers. Disgusting.
Most Republicans outside Alabama are denouncing Roy S. Moore and threatening to expel him from the Senate should he win the Dec. 12 election. Meanwhile Roy S. Moore waves his guns around in public — how else can you prove you’re a die-hard supporter of the Second Amendment? — and insists he’s the real victim. Really. He’s the victim?
No. Roy S. Moore has a proven track record as a vile human being who seems capable of the basest behaviors, most of which run contrary to the genuine conservative values he falsely allies himself to. May we hope Alabamians will rise up and refute this man since it appears he has not the common sense, grace or decency to withdraw on his own. Roy S. Moore is not a martyr; he’s a blight.
