Republicans Must Dump Roy Moore.

(ThyBlackMan.com) It is a political, tactical and moral mistake for Republicans to continue backing Judge Roy Moore for Alabama’s Senate seat.

In brief, he has been accused by multiple women of, decades ago, making unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances toward them when they were teenage girls — one as young as 14 — and he was in his 30s. At least four women say he initiated sexual contact with them.

When asked if he thought the Roy Moore allegations were true, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said, “I believe the women, yes. … I think he should step aside” — a sentiment shared, publicly and privately, by nearly all Republican senators.

President Donald Trump at first struck the right chord. After his handpicked Republican candidate lost the primary election, Trump called Moore to congratulate him. Everything was fine, until the allegations. Then Trump said, “If the allegations are true, he should drop out.” When the Republican National Committee withdrew its funding for Moore, Trump went along with it.

Then Trump began to twist, and he now says that Moore is innocent until proven guilty, that these are all old claims and that we can’t have a lefty in the Senate:

“(Roy Moore) denies it,” the President said last week. “Look, he denies it. I mean, if you look at what is really going on, and you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it. He says it didn’t happen. And, you know, you have to listen to him also. You’re talking about, he said 40 years ago this did not happen.”

Donald Trump then blasted Moore’s Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, via Twitter: “The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!”

These are not good enough reasons.

Again, Moore was not Trump’s guy. Luther Strange — the incumbent appointed to complete the term of former Sen. Jeff Sessions, who became Attorney General — was Trump’s choice. But Steve Bannon, Trump’s former aide, wanted Moore, presumably because the former judge supported Bannon’s desire to ditch Senate leader Mitch McConnell. Yet during the Luther Strange and Roy Moore debates, the candidates fell all over themselves to argue who would be more closely linked to the Trump agenda. So, no matter who won, he figured to be an ally to the President.

Defenders of Moore ask, why now? After decades in public service, why are these allegations only now coming out? A better question, why the allegations in the first place? Are they credible? But to answer the timing question, the more likely “culprit” is not Democratic opposition, but Harvey Weinstein, whose sexual abuse and misconduct opened the door for other accusers in other fields to come forward. That these allegations are only now being taken seriously is too little too late, but the timing could not have been worse for Roy Moore.

Of course he is “innocent until proven guilty.” This is not a court of law. This is politics. Are the defenders of Moore willing to discount all of his accusers but believe the accusers against Bill Clinton?

The voluminous allegations against Harvey Weinstein, a friend and patron of the political left, have forced the Democrats to reconsider their adoration for the likes of Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy, whose resumes include credible allegations of sexual assault, allegations long ignored.

For now, Republicans occupy the high moral ground, as Democrats, already dealing with allegations of sexual misconduct by Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., and Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., squirm to explain how and why they ignored, downplayed or accepted the sexual behavior of party icons Clinton and Ted Kennedy.

With Moore defenders, in part, circling the wagons on Moore, many Trump voters apparently cannot answer this question: Why did you “overlook” the allegations made by some dozen women against now-President Donald Trump?

That’s easy.

Trump was not running against Mother Teresa. Trump ran against Hillary Clinton, a woman against whom a credible allegation was made that she verbally intimidated Juanita Broaddrick just two weeks after Bill Clinton allegedly raped her. Conservative Barbara Olson’s book “Hell to Pay” and liberal Christopher Hitchens’ book “No One Left to Lie To” depict Hillary as the Toscanini of the “nuts or sluts” strategy effectively employed to malign and marginalize her husband’s accusers.

This is the person against whom Donald Trump ran. So, no, Republicans need not apologize for supporting Trump against a person whose actions enabled, covered up for and therefore perpetuated her husband’s misconduct.

By supporting Roy Moore, Republicans, on the issue of sexual misconduct, risk turning into the my-guy-wrong-or-wrong hypocrites from across the aisle.

    EDIT TO Earlier POST:

    Mr. Elder, I know that in my 2 posts, I also critiqued Peter J. LaBarbera (Americans for Truth)& Michelle Malkin but both columnists, along with Clifford P. Kincaid. have said things which are rubbish. Peter J. LaBarbera says that he is against transexual mutilations and he says that he is against homosexual pedophiles, yet Juanita Broaddrick, Peter J. LaBarbera & Michelle Malkin are on July 15, 2018 making excuses for Ohio Representative Jim D. Jordan accused of covering up homosexual pedophilia against teenage wrestlers, because Representative Jordan is going after Peter P. Strzok.

    If the accusation & rumor is true that that Jim D. Jordan covered up for pederastry against teenage wrestlers, then will Peter James LaBarbera then condemn it? Peter J. LaBarbera has in past made excuses for transexual homosexual pedophile David Arthur by saying that David Arthur changed. Mrs. Linda P. Harvey of Mission America has become a disappointment and Mission America’s Linda P. Harvey has also made excuses for transexual homosexual pedophile by having him on her show, which is why people should no longer support Mission America, they say they’re against homosexual pedophiles and then make excuses for David Arthur.

    That’s why the Republicans are no better than the Democrats on topics such as the transgender agenda. As said, both the Democrats and Republicans push the same things on some topics (already mentioned by me) such as transgenderism and how do you answer the fact that Democrats push ideas you differ with only that they are honest about this while Republicans especially conservatives say they’re against this, but then push what they say to be against.

    People who call themselves Republican conservatives will speak against pedophiles like HB Milk who boasted about having homosexual relations with teenage boys but then the same Republican conservatives support Breitbart and Fox News having Milo Yiannopolous making excuses for homosexual pedophilia and then the same Republicans making excuses for Breitbart.

    As Republican Party and Fox News have had people who are transexual such as WBruce Jenner as a guest, no ideology difference between the Republicans and Democrats on some topics and no ideology difference between CNN and Fox News on some topics.

    Don’t see why President Trump’s supporters waste so much time talking about ex Presidents, especially Obama and Clinton, though both will never be the President again and Clinton has been out of the White House since 2001. I did not care for Obama and I did not care for ex President Bush (especially as I opposed the 2003 Iraq War), but not the President anymore means not the President anymore.

    Before the 2016 election, I heard evangelicals condemning Trump but since the 2016 elections, evangelicals are making excuses for him Trump. And so much time is wasted by President Trump’s supporters talking about Hillary, ex President Clinton and ex Pres. Obama, when those 3 aren’t politicians anymore.

    With President Trump’s supporters (especially evangelicals), they say they’re against something and then do what they say to be against, which started by supporting Trump. It also makes no sense for evangelicals to decry the Rainbow Flag, but support Breitbart who hired Milo Yiannopolous & then make excuses for Milo Yiannopolous defending same sex pedophilia. Most of the same people have not spoken against Vice President MR Pence for supporting the ambassador to Germany. Anyhow, makes no sense to condemn Democrats or those liberals and then do the things you say to be against.

    I don’t have Cable TV and don’t watch Fox and CNN much anymore unless on vacation. But Fox News is no better than CNN, especially as Fox News has commenters who are pro-transgender such as Ann H. Coulter and Michelle Malkin who both make excuses for transexuality. Fox News is pro-transgender and they’re even worse because @least CNN, NBC, ABC and the other networks are honest while Fox News pushes the same trash.

    Michelle Malkin and columnist Clifford P. Kincaid have both gave sympathy to the 2016 Orlando Pulse shooting victims by calling them innocent, but there were individual pedophiles on June 2016 in the Orlando Pulse before the shooting. Over the years, Cliff P. Kincaid has written columns talking about how homosexuals are pedophiles and drug junkies but after the June 2016 Orlando Pulse shooting, he gave them sympathy by calling them 49 innocent victims-perhaps Michelle Malkin & Cliff P. Kincaid think a pedophile is an innocent victim.

    Here are things which most media (including Fox News, Michelle Malkin and Cliff P. Kincaid) have not covered regarding Orlando June 2016. In June 2016, Pastor Roger O. Jimenez (Sacramento) and Pastor Steven Lee Anderson (Tempe) called the 50 Orlando Pulse shooting victims and the others wounded pedophiles. It turns out that on that night, there were underaged teenagers in the pub, so there were individual homosexual pedophiles seeking victims, before the shooting.

    Now it wasn’t Omar S. Mateen’s place to be executioner. It was the police’s job to arrest, with jury trials and courts deciding punishment. But truth is that there were pedophiles that night in the Orlando Pulse before shooting. Many homosexuals, lesbians transexuals were childhood sex abuse victims which ruined them and likely caused their homosexuality. Sometimes, victimized by different pedophiles.

    People who are victims of pedophiles (esp. same sex pedophilia) are more likely to turn out homosexual and in some cases, turn out to be perderasts. With Orlando Pulse, given that many of them were Hispanic, it can easily be that 1 or more of them were childhood sex abuse victims of possibly a priest, which could have caused their homosexuality and some went on to sexually abuse others-repeating what they learned.

  3. Anirban (aka Abner) Bhattacharya says:

    President Donald John Trump has also had a dozen women accuse him of rape, sex abuse and sexual harassment, but President Trump’s supporters give President Trump the doubt benefit. Many Trump supporters also gave Roy Stewart Moore the doubt benefit when he was accused of committing statutory rape on teenage girls during the 1970s-only Roy Stewart Moore and the women who accuse him know what happened.

    But Mr.Edler must know that only ex Pres. William Jefferson Clinton and Juanita Broaddrick know what happened. It’s possible Juanita Broaddrick is telling the truth but it’s also possible that ex President William J. Clinton had an affair with Juanita Broaddrick and Juanita Broaddrick is angry that ex President William J. Clinton rejected her, in that he did not want to continue the relationship with her.

    It’s also possible that nothing sexual happened between Juanita Broaddrick and ex President Clinton in that Juanita Broaddrick could have wanted to have a relationship with William J. Clinton, but he was not interested in her and she has been angry all these years.

    I write those other possibilities, because Juanita Broaddrick’s actions are also consistent with some1 who is angry that she was rejected. Juanita Broaddrick on her Twitter page has attacked Chelsea Victoria Clinton, and the attacks Juanita Broaddrick makes on Hillary Diane Clinton and Chelsea are also consistent with a person who is angry that she was rejected and she takes her anger on Clinton’s daughter. Only Juanita and Bill know what happened.

    Juanita Broaddrick talks about how her story has not been covered by mainstream press, though NBC Dateline interviewed her and broadcasted her interview in February 1999 & she still condemned NBC. CNN, ABC News and CBS News also talked about Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation in February 1999. Juanita Broaddrick has been on Fox News a few times since then. Now while CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN have discussed Juanita Broaddrick much less than Fox News, they have talked about her. Washington Post & other newspapers talked about Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation in February 1999.

    President Clinton has been out of politics since 2001, so repeatedly talking about Juanita Broaddrick’s accusation would be repeating old news. Hillary Diane Clinton was Senator from 2001-2013 and the media discussed many things that she was accused of such as Benghazi and the emails, though it was concluded Hillary Diane Clinton did nothing illegal though she could have been smarter with the emails.

    Juanita Broaddrick condemned Amazon for selling a book about ex President Clinton by J. Patterson, though Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. also sells her book and other books hostile to the Clintons. Amazon and Barnes and Noble’s job is to sell books and make money and they sell pro-Clinton books just as they sell hers. Juanita Broaddrick condemned Fox News for advertising J. Patterson’s book about Ex President Clinton, though Fox News has had her many times on her show.

    In October 2016, after journalist Megyn M. Kelly mentioned that DJ Trump has had many women accuse him of rape and sex abuse, Juanita Broaddrick got angry and compared Megyn M. Kelly to murderer Charles M. Manson. Paula Rosalee Jones called Megyn a nasty heifer. Juanita Broaddrick got offended and angry because journalist Megyn Marie Kelly told Newt that DJ Trump has had women accuse him of rape and sex abuse. Juanita Broaddrick denies being politically motivated but the fact Juanita Broaddrick got so angry @ Megyn, proves that Juanita Broaddrick is politically motivated.

    Juanita Broaddrick’s face fits the body language of an arrogant, haughty and angry personality. I don’t think Juanita Broaddrick wants to be interviewed by NBC, CBS or ABC News because what could happen is a conflict, given how Juanita compared Megyn to Charles M. Manson.

    Juanita Broaddrick supports Breitbart even after Breitbart hired Milo Yiannopolous and Milo Yiannopolous defends same sex pedophilia. Perhaps, Juanita Broaddrick thinks it’s acceptable for Milo Yiannopolous to support homosexual pedophilia. If the rumor is true that Ohio Representative James Daniel Jordan covered up for homosexual pedophilia in wrestling & given how Juanita Broaddrick, Mark R. Levin and Michelle Malkin support JD Jordan because he is going after Peter P. Strzok, then perhaps Juanita Broaddrick, Mar. R. Levin and Michelle Malkin think covering up for homosexual pedophilia is fine when it’s Republican. Both Republican Party and Democrat Party are rubbish.

    Though old news. Only Roy Stewart Moore and his accusers know what happened. As Mr. Elder knows, in another blog Mychal S. Massie gave Roy Stewart Moore the doubt benefit while convicting Ex Presidents Clinton and Obama. Now I don’t agree with Ex President Clinton & Obama especially on topics such as Ex President Obama and ex Senator Hillary Diane Clinton are both apologists for transexual agenda but there are reasonable doubts with regard to the rape/sex abuse accusations against ex President Clinton. Mychal S. Massie is against both Ex President Obama and the Clintons regardless. Before I continue, people know that I am not Republican and I am not Democrat. I don’t like either party.

    I disagree with Hillary Diane Clinton on her support for transgenders because I think they should abolish sex change mutilations. Democrats such as Ex Senator Hillary Diane Clinton, ex President Obama, Oprah Gail Winfrey and Kamala Devi Harris are wrong to support transgenders. The Republican Party also supports transgenders including Fox News. @least with Hillary, Oprah, Kamala D. Harris, ex President Obama, etc., they are honest about supporting transgenders.

    Those who call themselves ‘conservatives’ will say they’re against this, but then they hire columnists who support transgenders such as Michelle Malkin &, Ann Hart Coulter who both make excuses for transgenderism. It makes no sense for evangelicals to decry the Rainbow Flag, but support Breitbart who hired Milo Yiannopolous & Milo Yiannopolous supports homosexual pedophilia.

    But Mr. Elder must know that President DJ Trump has had a dozen women accuse Pres. DJ Trump of rape, sex abuse and sexual harassment. But Mr. Elder in this post is giving DJ Trump the benefit doubt. He also cites Juantia Broaddrick. While only Juanita Broaddrick and William Jefferson Clinton know what happened, the fact is that Juanita Broaddrick’s personality is haughty, arrogant and angry. Juanita Broaddrick’s face fits the body language of an arrogant, haughty and angry personality.

    In October 2016, after journalist Megyn M. Kelly mentioned that DJ Trump has had many women accuse him of rape and sex abuse, Juanita Broaddrick got angry and compared Megyn M. Kelly to murderer Charles M. Manson. Paula Rosalee Jones called Megyn a nasty heifer. Juanita Broaddrick got offended and angry because journalist Megyn Marie Kelly told Newt that DJ Trump has had women accuse him of rape and sex abuse. Juanita Broaddrick denies being politically motivated but the fact Juanita Broaddrick got so angry @ Megyn, proves that Juanita Broaddrick is politically motivated.

Juanita Broaddrick on her Twitter page has attacked Chelsea Victoria Clinton, and the attacks Juanita Broaddrick makes on Hillary Diane Clinton and Chelsea are also consistent with a person who is angry that she was rejected and she takes her anger on Clinton’s daughter.

    Juanita Broaddrick says things such as it doesn’t matter what political party 1 belongs to, that rape and sex abuse are wrong. But Juanita Broaddrick supports President Trump who again has had a dozen women accuse him of sex abuse & she condemned journalist Megyn M. Kelly for raising this. And Juanita Broaddrick supports columnist Dinesh J. D’Souza and Dinesh was accused by his ex wife of hitting her (assault and battery) during quarrels. Juanita Broaddrick is influenced by the political party of the accused, though she says otherwise.

    Juanita Broaddrick (along with other Clinton accusers) denies being political, when she is interviewed by news sites such as the Hill but Juanita Broaddrick will say something different when on Twitter. Juanita Broaddrick supports Breitbart even after Breitbart hired Milo Yiannopolous and Milo Yiannopolous defends same sex pedophilia. Perhaps, Juanita Broaddrick thinks it’s acceptable for Milo Yiannopolous to support homosexual pedophilia. Juanita Broaddrick is political though she denies it.

    Recently, Ohio Representative Jim Daniel Jordan has been accused of covering up for homosexual sex abuse of wrestler. We’ll find out if rumor is true about J.D. Jordan covering up for homosexual sex abuse as that has been rumored for quite a while. Sometimes rumors are true. Predictably, Juanita Broaddrick, along with Peter James LaBarbera (Americans for Truth) and others have been making excuses for James Daniel Jordan such as attacking those who have accused JD Jordan, because JD Jordan is a Republican. If the rumor is true that J.D. Jordan covered up for homosexual sex abuse, then JD Jordan is a horrible person.

    That’s why I do not care for what Peter J. LaBarbera says anymore because on his Twitter page, he along with Mark R. Levin, Juanita Broaddrick and columnist Michelle Malkin make excuses for Jim Daniel Jordan (Ohio) just because Jim Daniel Jordan goes after Peter P. Strzok.
