The Blame Game

I've written several entries about Roy Moore, the far right, fundamentalist alleged Christian who is running for Alabama's open Senate seat in the December 12 election. While Moore's lead slipped after eight women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct when they were young teenagers, he has more recently pulled ahead again, possibly helped by Donald Trump's endorsement of him.

At a campaign event in a church on Wednesday night, Moore again insisted he was innocent and the charges were all fabricated (details here).

He stated the following about his accusers: "They’re liberals. They don’t hold conservative values. They are the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender who want to change our culture. They are socialists who want to change our way of life and put man above God and the government is our God."

This blame game conveniently overlooks the fact that the majority of women who accused him are registered Republicans. They're all heterosexual married women with children.

Or was he trying to tar liberals and "the gays" for tricking these women into making false claims? Change the word "gay" to "Jew," and Moore would be exactly mimicking the sorts of blame slander widely perpetrated by the Third Reich.

Moore is not alone in making such obscene statements. He's being supported by Orthodox Rabbi Noson Shmuel Leiter from New York who has blamed "homosexualist gay terrorists" and "the LGBT transgender mafia."

I have half a mind to sue Moore and Leiter for slander. Both of them have a long history of saying horrendous things about LGBT Americans, and Moore was ultimately removed from the state supreme court for refusing to follow federal law on LGBT issues.

This is what America has come to. Moore is trying to turn our nation into a Christian theocracy not unlike Iran. And, tragically, Alabama seems poised to help him do so.

    ALL of those American stories, today the Flynn one, are such «funny»..

    Funny on my Canadian point of view because it's as gross as a nose in the middle of a face. How ridiculous are those characters to lie to ALL USA about their actions.

    For Moore and the Rabbi Leiter they would be sued in Canadian court for being sexists and racists in the way they talk publically.
    I'm always flabbergasted to see how USA is such tolerant by allowing those «crackpots» narrow minded religious crooks to go freely and express such insanities.

    It's more than time USA enter in the 21st century and stop putting in front some of those old 19th century ideas.

    With Trumpty Dumpty in office, USA will not evolve that much, at least for the «d├ęplorables» that elected him in 2016.

    You have an administration that is standing on LIES, bigotry and ancient ideas of the power.

    I'm eager to read your point of view on the latest news of Flynn lies...
