Roy Moore: America Was 'Great' During Slavery

GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore stunned some listeners when he said he thought America was "great" during the era of slavery. Though he made the comments at a campaign rally in Florence, Alabama, more than two months ago, they've re-emerged in a viral tweet just days before the election. Back in September, one of the few African-Americans in the crowd asked the candidate when he thought was the "last time" America was great. "I think it was great at the time when families were united. Even though we had slavery, they cared for one another. ... Our families were strong, our country had a direction," Moore responded, according to a Los Angeles Times report in September. At the same rally, he also referred to Native Americans and Asians as "reds and yellows," the LA Times reported.

Comments

Yeah, when all the. "reds and yellows" were kept in their place. Yeehaw.

What a crop of pathetic jackass the GOP has in its stable of Deplorables.

""I think it was great at the time when families were united. Even though we had slavery, they cared for one another. ... Our families were strong, our country had a direction," Moore responded, according to a Los Angeles Times report in September."

Yeah, they cared for one another til the master sold part of the family down the river. Roy Moore is an abomination. If you support him I honestly feel sorry for you because you have no morals and no intelligence.

Yeah, white families. What makes Moore the perfect GOP candidate? He's sexist, racist, homophobic, calls himself a Christian, is anti-abortion and advocates no separation between church and state. Winning!

3: Not even Fox claims the whole thing is a forgery. She said that she added the date and place. Those additions obviously look different. The rest is authentic and she stands by her story.

If roy was innocent you wouldn't have to lie like that to defend him

You support a child molester. Fox news twisted your brain.

Does that make her a nut or a ----?

"Vice" had Frank Lutz talking with Alabama voters.....that was some scary stuff. Looks like roys going to Washington.

Roy should win easily. He does the thing whites are afraid blacks will do to their daughters.

I would say that Fox News gives him the validation he doesn't get anywhere else in life, almost like a gang member.

Brain dead republicans of Pedobama believe all the women identifying Roy Moore as a serial sexual assaulter are democratic plants and Hillary supporters.

You can't make that much stupid up.

At 14 years old? Really? I get 18, maybe 17, but 14?

"Woman admits she forged the Roy More thing in her yearbook. Won't see that in the fake news."

right wingers are such scum, they change the definition of annotation to forgery.

pathetic display of child molestation apologism by sniper.

and what roy moore is doing is common amongst conservatives i've seen, where they play this bs line that families were better under slavery for blacks. LIES ... families were repeatedly torn apart during slavery and after. American black families have been destroyed over and over again by the white establishment.

lets see if sniper returns to correct his LIE

Basically. The Republican Party has become the party of sexual assault and pedophilia.

If you want to rape women and children, vote Republican.

Pedophiles think they're easier to fool at 14. As for the slavery thing, that's why so many people in Alabama love Roy. He thinks like they do.

Alabama turnout is expected to be about 25% overall. Alabama is also 26.8% african american. You'd hink they would turn out in droves to relegate this idiot to the history books. Unfortunately i expect him to win.

#24 | Posted by JOE at 2017-12-09 09:38 AM

What the hell is wrong evangelicals? This seems to be a fairly common belief among the religious Reich. What would MAGA is enslaving them for a few years, whipping them, tearing their families apart, and forcing them to pick crops in the hot sun in exchange for nothing more than a crappy meal and cramped living conditions. Take away their vote and their voice...MAGA.

"Forty years ago in Alabama, there's a lot of mamas and daddies that'd be thrilled that their 14-year-old was getting hit on by a district attorney."

40 yrs ago in PA my parents would have wondered what in the hell was wrong with a grown --- professional man who was hitting on their 14 year old, and they would have had a pretty good idea. With his military and educational background, one has to wonder even more at Moore's desire to hang out at the mall and high school football games:

Moore attended West Point and served as a military police company commander in the Vietnam War. After graduating from the University of Alabama Law School, he joined the Etowah County district attorney's office

Some on the left are actually recommending Dems in AL don't vote for Jones because he's mediocre, not leftist enough and ran a campaign ad that mentions the Civil War:

Doug Jones is a Terrible Candidate

A critique of Doug Jones from the left

Come election day, Alabamians will have the sacred honor of participating in the democratic process by voting for either a child rapist or a weak-kneed white blob in a suit to go work on Capitol Hill for some unknown corporate donor. Personally, I can't say that I will be taking part.

From here it is painfully obvious. Roy Moore is as evil as they come. If the blacks don't turn out to vote against Roy Moore then they will get the government they deserve. The main reason we are here today dealing with one of the most corrupt Presidents ever and living through investigations as serious as watergate is only because people got complacent and thought their vote doesn't matter.

Well, it matters very much. Get out and vote or continue to suffer the consequences.

You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it think.

#33 | Posted by donnerboy at 2017-12-10 11:15 AM

Moore is scum and he had long been scum. He had no respect for the rule of law or the Constitution.
