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.
