Donald Trump is so in favor of electing a sexual predator to Congress that he has made a robo call suggesting that the election of Roy Moore would make America “great again.”
Roy Moore is not only a sexual predator, but he has a history of being removed from office because he refused to abide by the rulings of superior Courts in Alabama. Let me repeat that! Roy Moore has a history of being removed as a judge TWICE for ethics violations.
He’s Known For His Religious Fundamentalism
In 1996, a court ruled that Moore’s practice of opening court with a prayer was unconstitutional. He called homosexual behavior “an inherent evil, and an act so heinous that it defies one’s ability to describe it.” In 2001, Moore commissioned the installation of a 5,280 pound Ten Commandments statue in the state’s judicial building. A federal judge eventually ruled in 2003 that the statue violated the First Amendment’s principle of separation of church and state, and ordered it to be removed. Moore refused to comply and was removed from office in 2004 on ethics grounds. In 2005, he said “homosexual conduct” should still be illegal.
In 2012, Moore was reelected as Chief Justice in a surprise election result.
In 2016, Moore ordered Alabama judges to disobey the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that legalized same-sex marriage. Once again, Moore was found guilty of ethics violations and was suspended from office for the rest of his term. In April 2017 Moore announced he would run for Senate.
Moore Has Used Racist Language During His Campaign
Last week, a video surfaced of Moore using racist language during a campaign speech, calling Asian and Native American people “yellows” and “reds.”
He Suggested 9/11 Was A Punishment From God
In a speech delivered in February, Moore suggested that 9/11 was a punishment delivered by God, reading bible quotes and then connecting them to the attacks on The Pentagon and the Twin Towers. He later said God was upset because Americans “legitimize sodomy” and “legitimize abortion,” according to CNN.
He’s A Birther
Moore has also established himself as a birther (a person who believes that Barack Obama wasn’t born in the US). In December 2016, Moore told members of the Constitution Party that he didn’t believe Obama was born a citizen. The announcement came months after Donald Trump abandoned the theory publicly.
Thus, there are plenty of reasons the President should never endorse such a candidate, not to mention his history as a sexual predator.
Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for Senate in Alabama, ruled in a 1990s divorce case that a woman who had a lesbian affair couldn’t visit her children unsupervised or with her partner, writing that the “minor children will be detrimentally affected by the present lifestyle” of the mother.
It’s a sad day in America when the best candidate either party nominates for office is such an immoral liar, pedophile, and someone who believes his personal opinion is a higher authority than the United States Supreme Court. It’s not just the case of a candidate with an immoral character, Moore is a person who was removed from office for violating the rule of law. He is the embodiment of tyranny. He believes he is a higher power than the US Supreme Court. Just like Trump’s pardoning of Sheriff Joe Arapio, Trump believes that he and the people who share his views are above the law.
The robo calls made by Trump for Roy Moore are the very think that will destroy America! It is one more example of Donald Trump’s defiance of the law.
