The Real Scandal in the Alabama Senate Race

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke11/13/17
Scandals take many forms. If you could be transported back to antebellum times, for example, would you not find the desire to perpetuate the legal institution of slavery scandalous? This brings us to the Alabama special election to fill Jeff Sessions’ vacant Senate seat, a contest now front-and-center with the recent sex allegations made against GOP hopeful Judge Roy Moore. Moore denies the charges, but there are certain things that can’t be denied.

Democrat Doug Jones, Moore’s opponent, has some noteworthy positions. He’s pro-prenatal infanticide. It’s not a stance he took 40 years ago but has since abandoned, and it doesn’t mean he’s accused of once having kissed an underage girl.

It means he believes in the murder of underage girls — and boys. That’s beyond scandalous.

Jones supports de-facto amnesty, meaning, he wouldn’t even require illegal aliens to return to their home countries before being granted citizenship. This undermines the rule of law and exemplifies the treasonous attitude that subordinates the good of one’s countrymen to the good of invading foreigners — and all because they’ll vote Democrat after being naturalized. Selling out your culture for political power is scandal on steroids.

Jones supports the regulation of carbon dioxide, otherwise known as plant food, because he pushes the dubious global-warmingclimate-change, uh, “global climate disruption” agenda. Since it’s average Americans who’ll pay these regulations’ costs, this serves to further impoverish the struggling. That’s scandalous.

Jones advocates the unscientific, socially disastrous “transgender” agenda. First, he said President Trump was “wrong, wrong, wrong” to return to the longtime status quo of banning so-called “transgender” people from the military; this means he supports social experimentation in the armed forces.

Second, he also supports allowing boys masquerading as girls to use girls’ bathrooms and locker rooms. In fact, he said that Trump’s rescinding of Barack Obama’s school guidance to that effect was “wrong, wrong, wrong!” (Because, you see, when you say that way it makes the other guy three times as wrong.) By the way, below is a video of Jones expressing these sentiments just last month.

Oh, yeah — the above is scandalous, too.

In addition, Jones advocates using taxpayer money to fund fanciful, economically unviable energy schemes such as solar, wind and thermal energy. Apparently, he’d like to repeat Obama’s “green energy” boondoggles (e.g., Solyndra), which only turned out green in that they wasted 2.2 billion worth of Americans’ greenbacks.

But Jones loves spending other people’s money. While he doesn’t believe in cutting your taxes to spur economic growth, he thinks having government give away your tax money will do so.

Lastly, despite the fact that ObamaCare is unconstitutional, has caused millions of Americans’ healthcare premiums to rise and created co-ops that have collapsed right and left, Jones opposes rescinding the program. Well, no matter. He’ll have great healthcare through the Senate if he wins December 12.

As for the last four positions, some would say calling them scandalous is a stretch, so you can apply your own adjective (stupid comes to mind). And whatever you might prefer for characterizing all his positions, “old” and “repudiated” don’t fit. “Current” sure does, though.

So killing babies, killing the rule of law, killing with regulations, killing tradition and kids’ right to privacy, killing our pocketbooks, killing the economy and killing healthcare (sounds like an alternate-universe Bill O’Reilly book series). In the scandal department, Roy Moore has a long way to go to have a chance of keeping up with the Joneses.

Simply put, Doug Jones is the most scandalous of creatures: a leftist radical who is “wrong, wrong, wrong” on the issues. It’s a wonder he isn’t seeking office in California, New York, Massachusetts or North Korea. Running someone whose positions are so wholly contrary to Alabaman culture is a slap in the face to the state. Is this a political version of Punk’d?

If I lived in Alabama, on December 12 I’d vote for Judge Roy Moore while holding my nose — but only because the stench from Doug Jones’ name would be rising right from the ballot.

    One hopes that in the end Alabama voters decide Jones’s radical leftist ideology is far worse than dubious accusations against Judge Moore. I certainly don’t want to see a Demagogue pick-up in the Senate on my birthday.

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      I think Selwyn shows good sense. Even if the accusations against Moore are true, what about what this other guy stands for, and not 40 years ago but now?

      • Timothy Lane says:

        Much also depends on the accusations against Moore. So far they’re pretty mild, though certainly creepy — even if true, and that’s always a good question under the circumstances.

  2. pst4usa says:

    Some how you seem to miss the point, Moore is a Republican. No sin or perceived sin is forgivable if committed by or allegedly committed by a Republican. No sin or perceived sin is an issue at all, (it is not even a sin), if committed by or allegedly committed by a Democrat. You guys are just not “feeling” this right, if you would remember how to feel about this and stop thinking about this, you would understand.

  3. Steve Lancaster says:

    A lot of issues in this. Perhaps Trump supported Strange because he knew that McConnell was going to smear Moore and by not supporting Moore he distanced himself from the food fight and the political trap.

    From what I have been able to glean from the media Moore simply dated younger women who at the time were of the age of consent, and other than some kissing nothing happened. This is possible as Moore seems to prefer younger women. I believe his current wife was 10 years younger than he when they married.

    The charge of rape is of dubious credit, 40 years after the alleged event. And Gloria Allred as attorney doesn’t enhance the credibility.

    Mitt Romney thinks he should give up. Well, Mittens knows how to surrender, remember Harry Reid in 2012 claiming he did not pay taxes and the lack of outrage from the Romney camp? Reid later admitted it was a lie but said, “it worked didn’t it”

    Mostly Moore is not, and after this never will be, a friend to the RINO leadership in the senate. For that alone he is persona non grata by both parties.

    This is nothing but an attempted political lynching carried out by the Democrat media complex. According to the latest Rasmussen pool Moore is up 10 points and his support among likely voters is strong. Southerners don’t like people from the coasts telling them how to vote. It is possible that Moore will win in a mega landslide.

    The democrat media complex will dismiss it as, “well its Alabama what do you expect from a bunch of homophobes, racists, sexists, barely out of the 15th century.”

    On a broader note. Is it any surprise that you or your neighbor don’t run for office after the beatings that go on?

    • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

      I think conservatives and non-leftists in general are fed up with the MSM/RINO/DIM clique getting away with political murder for decades. If Moore were found to be Jack-The-Ripper it is still likely that he would be elected. To paraphrase Nixon who was talking about some foreign leader, I blv it was the leader of Nicaragua, “He may be a bastard, but he’s our bastard.”

      This is also one of the main reasons Trump was elected. He will stand up to the scoundrels of the left.

      This will lead to more divisive politics and I blv eventually violence. But there is likely no alternative other than giving into the left. They don’t give up so they must be defeated. And the right adhering to Marquis of Queensbury(?) rules will not work.

      • Steve Lancaster says:

        The progressives are astonished when someone fights back. They are used to winning by accusing and then an ignominious retreat.

        It was not Nicaragua but Chile and the leader was Augusto Pinochet, but its the same point.

        You cannot have a revolution without violence, and the progs are intent on revolution. I sense that the American people have had enough.

      • Timothy Lane says:

        “Eventually violence”? You know better. We’ve had violence from the left for a long time, but this year it’s been a lot worse. And it’s true that the Marquis of Queensberry rules only work if both boxers use them.

        The latest polls I’ve seen in Alabama, unfortunately, show Jones taking the lead. But who really knows? The situation is probably very fluid right now.

        • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

          “Eventually violence”? You know better.

          I should have said, “will require a violent response from the right to the continual and unanswered violence of the left. In other words, stop turning the cheek.”

    • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

      On a broader note. Is it any surprise that you or your neighbor don’t run for office after the beatings that go on?

      All good points, Steve, particularly the above.

      I may shock you in what I’m about to say. I believe the Kung & Nelson Political Consultancy has been more right about Donald Trump than anyone on the web. For my own part, I didn’t oppose Trump during the primary because of his low character. I viewed his low character (and past) as a good indicator that the conservative things he was saying during the campaign could not be trusted, that he was basically a demagogue. Whether he grabbed pussy or not, I really didn’t care, particularly suspecting (with good reason) that toxic femininity (the desire to offer one’s body to a powerful man in return for favors) is just as active in our culture as toxic masculinity, although only the latter is generally acknowledged in this increasingly feminist culture.

      Regarding Trump being a demagogue, that has been borne out. Still, we do have Judge Gorsich. We wouldn’t have gotten that from Jeb Bush. And Trump has other things to his credit. But there is still no wall. Hillary has not been locked up. And last I heard, the US embassy is not in Jerusalem.

      None of us know the veracity of the allegations against Judge Moore. We only know that they come late and that toxic femininity has led many women in the past (Duke lacrosse team) to make false allegations against men, particularly Republicans. The media, in particular, cannot be trusted in this regard. If I lived in Alabama, I would ignore the allegations and “vote the issues” as those across the aisle do to great effect.

      Somehow Democrats can make peace with Robert Byrd, formerly of the KKK, but we insist on running Jesus Christ for every office. We (or at least the Republican Establishment) cannot find reason to vote the issues of the day and leave 40 years ago in the murky past. To me it’s completely clear what drives the Republican Establishment: They are more beholden to the opinions of their liberal wives than they are to opposing the Left. Period.

      Two life-transforming events have happened to me of late: I will no longer watch the trashy NFL nor will I read the trashy National Review Online (although I might peek into what Andy McCarthy is writing now and then). I’m done with their institutional dishonesty. They are not for opposing the Left. They act as if their primary function is to prove to everyone that they are not the bad people as characterized by the Left. That’s all you need to know in order to understand the Establishment Republicans…other than the money, of course.

      National Review is a disgrace. All people are sinners. In the here and now, who has the better political agenda, Moore or his baby-killing opponent? And if that particular point isn’t important, then what is all this virtue signally about in the first place?

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:


        One must never forget that these types, including NRO, RINO’s, etc, etc, consider themselves nobility, perhaps a nobility of merit yet still nobility. That means the rest of us are peasants and are not equipped to understand the complexity of the world.

        And we are going to swallow what they feed us whether we like it or not.

        • Brad Nelson Brad Nelson says:

          Thanks, Mr. Kung.

          I’ll trust this to the voters in Alabama. They can prioritize the issues as they like. But in the longer view, it’s become obvious as never before that the Republican Party is useless as a reform party.

          It’s also obvious that any reform candidate (and I’m not aware of Judge Moore’s positions) will face opposition from both government parties. Sure, one is more outwardly Marxist, but the other party (the Republicans) is an enabler of the Marxists because they suck up all the oxygen in the room in regards to opposing this movement.

          At the end of the day, given that the Republican Party shows no ability to take tough stances, why should one not go with the Democrats? And, of course, many do for that very reason. It’s obvious that the Democrats have teeth and the Republicans are feckless. You know that Democrats will go to bat for you. And you can be absolutely sure the Republicans will run for cover at the first sign of controversy. They are, as we have so often seen, the Left’s biatches.

          You know who the stupidest person in all of American politics is? It’s the person or persons (and there are many of them) who say that the Democrat Party is on the ropes because of this or that overreach. If I had a nickel for every delusional article from the conservative media that I’ve read in this regard, I could retire. But at least the Democrats reach. The Republicans reach for nothing but enriching themselves.

          I think it is very possible the the Republican Party is the party in danger of fading away or dissolving. What use is it? The advantage it has is control of the money and that nearly all of their would-be replacements are a bunch of semi-fringe (or fully fringe) wacko groups. And we see from dishonest Establishment Republicans such as McCain who used the “wacko bird” slur against Paul and Cruz that the dastardly Establishment Republicans and their holier-than-thou mouthpieces mean to tar any and all opposition as “wacko birds.”

          I mean, I’m no natural ally of Marxists. But at the end of the day, what are you going to do if no one is offering a principled and moral alternative to them? And that’s what we lack. Despite the dishonest and dastardly hand-wringing by the assholes in the conservative online media over Judge Moore, they are not making a clear moral case for our point of view in general. Instead they obsess on moral issues that are thrust upon them by their opponents. Biatches.

          You can’t win that way. Trump, as crude as this man is, shows what you can do when you take the offensive. All we need is to combine the bravado of Trump with the principled platform of Russell Kirk and we’d have something. The last time we got that was in Ronald Reagan. So we take this Frankenstein’s monster of bravado and hope Trump’s advisors can blow a little more sense into his nonsense. At the moment it’s all we got until a replacement party gains ground.

          • Timothy Lane says:

            Polls in Alabama are inauspicious, and that’s even before a woman came forward with her own claim of a past sexual assault by Moore. Previously, all we had were the claims of the Washington Post. In addition, it seems that Moore has faked some of the evangelical pastoral support he has received, at least according to 3 different pastors. I doubt the voters of Alabama will be partisan enough to support him. And we still have most of a month for more to come out.

      • Kung Fu Zu Kung Fu Zu says:

        The link is to an interesting article which details how many ICE agents now feel betrayed by Trump.

        Trump could remedy this with his pen.

        • Timothy Lane says:

          He has been excessively slow about removing Obama Gang holdovers, and not just in ICE. Of course, some of these are probably protected “civil servants” who can’t be fired (though they can be transferred, perhaps to immigration control in Fairbanks, Alaska this coming winter).

  4. Lucia says:

    There’s a strong possibility that the Senate wouldn’t seat Moore if he won his election. The establishment could make an example out of him, to any and all conservative Christians who try to serve in congress. Anyone who has aspirations for higher office better take heed and their families better be prepared to be smeared, humiliated, and maligned. Even Jesus would get the same treatment.
