If you’re an Alabama voter to the right of Bill Ayers with a desire to do what’s right by your state and the rest of the country, the choice between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones is an easy one.
You vote for Roy Moore, walk out of that polling place with your head held high – and then sleep like a baby that night.
But but but, you ask, what about all the accusations against Moore?
Here’s your answer – I don’t care, and neither should you.
It’s not that the charges aren’t serious or the alleged behavior isn’t wrong. They are, and it is. And if it were still the primaries, maybe they would be enough to choose Luther Strange instead. The problem is, it’s now a binary choice, and given the fact that the allegations are decades old and the alleged victims “allowed” Moore to serve as a high-profile figure in Alabama politics for decades with nary a peep, we can’t completely know for sure either way.
Even so, even if you’re going with your gut and you’re 70 percent sure the allegations are true, or 95 percent, or 99.9 percent, you should STILL vote for Moore.
Why? Because even if there’s only a small chance Moore is innocent of the charges against him, I can say definitively there’s a 100 percent chance Democrat Doug Jones would aggressively work to enact policies that are 100 percent pure, unadulterated evil.
In other words, would you rather elect a guy who may or may not have done distasteful things 40 years ago yet has lived an exemplary life since then, or someone who would actively work to enact policies that would harm millions of people right now?
Here are a few of those policies:
His shameless, pandering backpedaling aside, Doug Jones believes unequivocally in a woman’s right to kill her unborn child right up to the moment of delivery. In an MSNBC interview, Jones said, “I’m not in favor of anything that is going to infringe on a woman’s right and her freedom to choose. That’s just the position that I’ve had for many years. It’s a position I continue to have. But I want to make sure people understand, that once a baby is born, I’m going to be there for that child. That’s where I become a right-to-lifer.”
Put it this way. If you believe it’s OK to stab babies in the skull right before they exit the birth canal, spare me your virtue-signaling and high-horse moralizing about what Roy Moore may or may not have done 40 years ago.
Sure, Jones has tried to pick up a few Moore voters by “clarifying” his position to say he doesn’t “see any changes” in the current Alabama law banning late-term abortions, but anyone with a lick of common sense can see through the rhetorical gymnastics. Even Politico recently acknowledged that the issue of abortion is Jones’ greatest weak spot and that he’ll have to “tone down his rhetoric on abortion if he wants to win over evangelicals.” Really, how stupid do they think we are?
Isn’t it lovely how Democrats who run in red states love to “talk turkey” about hunting and guns around election time, then turn around and vote for every conceivable “common sense” gun control law introduced by Schumer and Pelosi? Does anyone truly think Doug Jones would be different?
The man who calls himself a “Second Amendment guy,” also told Rachel Maddow in 2013 that the Second Amendment is “not an absolute right, not a God-given right.” In other words, Jones is just another “common sense” gun control lib who wants to restrict your gun rights all the way up to the point where guns are actually banned, in which case there’s a chance he may graciously consider letting you keep a shotgun – for turkey hunting of course.
Since the two rights are inexorably entwined, is it a conceivable leap to assume Mr. Jones doesn’t believe the right to self-defense is “God-given,” either? Don’t laugh. It’s the law in England, and they started with “common sense” gun control, too.
Like every other leftist loon lusting after that “permanent Democratic majority,” Doug Jones has never seen an unskilled Third World immigrant he didn’t want to bring into this country.
“The last wall that was constructed to stop people’s movements between countries was the Berlin Wall,” Jones said in a statement to the Montgomery Advertiser. “The United States of America is better than that.”
In other words, the United States “is better than” actually being able to control its borders. Jones’ solution to illegal immigration? Easy – make them all legal! ”If we can make a more streamlined process of allowing immigrants into this country legally without all of the backlogs and quotas, we would have far less undocumented immigrants,” Jones said while making an argument to overhaul the entire quota system.
As for the wall, why it’s “too expensive,” of course, even though the projected $20 billion is chump change compared to the government assistance Democrats want to toss at the “huddled masses” they’re dying to bring in.
Jones considers health care “a right, not a privilege.”
In other words, people should be forced to provide and pay for other people’s health care.
Jones wants to ensure “working Alabamians receive a living wage for their hard work.”
In other words, the man has zero understanding of basic economics.
Jones wants to “reduce sentencing disparities that see a disproportionate number of black and Latino Americans sentenced to prison. People of color make up 67 percent of the prison population, even though they make up only 37 percent of the population of the United States.”
In other words, because the actual statistics don’t meet Jones’ idea of what “equality” should be, we should somehow game the justice system to favor minorities. How does that work, exactly?
And this guy is a serious candidate with a serious possibility of getting elected to high office in the state of Alabama?
To the headline of this column, Moore is no alleged ax murderer. Not even close. But his faults, whatever they may be, pale in comparison to the damage Democrats would do to the country if they seize power, and a Jones victory would put them one crucial step closer to doing just that.
President Trump is right on this one: “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!”
Traitorous establishment Republicans, on the other hand, would rather lose the Senate, and with it the chance to implement any part of Trump’s agenda, than support a proven conservative like Roy Moore who may or may not have done distasteful things four decades ago.
Of course, losing and not being able to implement Trump’s agenda might very well have been their intention all along.
