Shock loss rant reveals Moore is less

It was regarded as a shock loss when republican candidate Roy Moore failed to win the Alabama seat for the US senate.

I find it a bit shocking that a candidate like Moore would have been selected and come close to being elected to the Senate.

Moore hasn’t conceded defeat yet, but has let loose with a rant that sounds scary for someone who came close to becoming a Senator.

Stuff: Roy Moore turns recount into religious crusade: ‘Immorality sweeps over the land’

A day after losing the US Senate race in Alabama to Democrat Doug Jones, Roy Moore has issued a new statement refusing to concede the election.

In the video issued by the campaign on Wednesday evening (Thursday NZ Time), Moore said his campaign is still waiting for the official vote count from Alabama officials. The Republican candidate framed the election as not just a political contest but also a dire ideological battle for “the heart and soul of our country.”

It was a four-minute fire-and-brimstone video about abortion, same-sex marriage, school prayer, sodomy, and “the right of a man to claim to be a woman and vice versa.”

“We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilisation and our religion and to set free a suffering humanity. Today, we no longer recognise the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty. Abortion, sodomy and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

“We have stopped prayer in our schools. We have killed over 60 million of our unborn children. We have redefined marriage and destroyed the basis of family, which is the building block of our country. Our borders are not secure. We have a huge drug problem. Our economy is faltering under an enormous national debt.

Trump’s tax bill will significantly increase debt – and it may be passed by the Senate before the new Alabama Senator is sworn in.

“We have even begun to recognise the right of a man to claim to be a woman, and vice versa. We have allowed judges and justices to rule over our Constitution, and we have become slaves to their tyranny. Immorality sweeps over our land.”

“Even our political process has been affected with baseless and false allegations, which have become more relevant than the issues which affect our country. This election was tainted by over $50 million dollars from outside groups who want to retain power and their corrupt ideology.”

“In this race we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots. This has been a very close race, and we are awaiting certification by the secretary of state.”

So despite most of the Republican Party sighing with relief when Moore lost he still holds hopes of getting into the Senate.

For one of the most advanced countries in the world there is still some very old fashioned views popular in some states.

    Seems like a mess that’s got a long local history with outsiders stirring the pot too. US politics look like being focused on old sex accusations and scandals rather than policies for the foreseeable future. Whatever works.

    The Republicans nominated a man accused of sexual misconduct to run for president in 2016, and that didn’t stop him from winning 62 percent of the vote in Alabama. Trump didn’t just win Alabama — he won by a larger margin than Romney, McCain, or George W.

    So while it’s true that the allegations of sexual “misconduct” played a role in the Alabma outcome, they’re hardly a comprehensive explanation of the outcome.

    The bigger issue is that an unpopular president and a group of unpopular congressional leaders are pushing an unpopular and self-serving political agenda down the throats of the electorate.

      I never said they were comprehensive. I posted a detailed look at the factors a couple of days ago. The sex allegations were not public until after Moore was selected just as Trump was targeted once nominated. Expect that kind of dirty politicking to continue from both sides from now on. Few men will be immune.

        The first allegations of “sexual misconduct” were raised against trump years before he emerged as a GOP candidate. For example:

        Ivana trump made accusations against him in her deposition in 1989 during their divorce proceedings.

        In 1993 Jill Harth raised issues with trump’s behaviour towards her, and she filed suit against him in 1997

        Bear in mind that trump himself has said on the record that “a lot of things are coming out, and I think that’s good for our society and I think it’s very, very good for women, and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out. I’m very happy it’s being exposed.” (News conference, November 21, 2017)

        In the context of politics, it’s called fake news and dirty politics. But the more appropriate term might be from the context of intimate relationships — where it’s called gaslighting.

          The Democrats held publicising the Trump tape they’d dug up until the eve of the presidential debates. As I said, Trump was targeted once nominated in order to inflict maximum damage by his political opponents. I think that is dirty politics. You think that is good for women. I think there will be collateral damage, and not only to the families of those targeted.

      Trump has plenty of support with his base. Its still incredible to think he smashed through to the Presidency, defeating the Washington DC / Alphabet News / Swinestein Hollywood swamp monster with the odds massively stacked against him.

      This 2016 US Pres election aftermath image still puts a big smile on my face every time:

        Gaslighting bullshit.

        The polls show that trump’s train is derailed and his support base is eroding. Mid-year he was hovering at 40% approval; he’s now averaging low/mid 30’s and there are clear indications he’s hemorrhaging support in rural areas, among men, whites and people who didn’t go to college (which was his solid core).

        Republicans in Congress just aren’t that afraid of Trump anymore, and are paying less and less attention to his demands.

        And… Alabama.

          “he’s now averaging low/mid 30’s”

          Yeah, that is his support base, like I said.

          The smug hubris you are exhibiting is the same as that of the preening out of touch Globalist elites last year. Are you lot ever going to learn?:

            Would you call it gaslighting ? Gaslighting is where someone tries to convince someone else that they are mad, as in the play ‘Gaslight’, which I think is by JB Priestley.

    “For one of the most advanced countries in the world there is still some very old fashioned views popular in some states.”

    Of course you can’t see , with your sanctimonious smug boomer liberal elitist attitude, that it is those “old fashioned” values that made America great.

    Once upon a time these 2 degenerates would have been promptly arrested and removed from a society disgusted at their moral perversity , but now they are celebrated by a decaying spiritually diseased civilisation administered by an anonymous technocratic Globalist elite:

    “Woman Quits Her Job To Breastfeed Her Boyfriend Every Two Hours

    …planning to stay at home and begin what is known as an adult breastfeeding relationship….She has never fed a baby of her own.”
