That's right. Back in September, at a campaign rally in Florence, Alabama, one of the only African Americans in the audience asked Moore when America was last "great."
His response was, “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.”
Yeah, a direction toward being the worst!!!
Obviously, the people of Twitter had much to say about these comments.
Like the fact that slavery was probably the time in U.S. history when families were the most divided. Maybe white families were united, but Moore is ignoring the fact that thousands of black families were ripped apart and um, literally sold as property.
At the same event, Moore referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans as "reds and yellows."
This is not a joke. This is not an exaggeration. This is real life. Moore also suggested that the terrorist attacks on 9/11 were “divine punishment” at the rally. This is a real-life man and not a cartoon representation of everything that’s bad about Americans.
Roy Moore is living in the past, and honestly, even if he lived in the 1800s, some of his beliefs would have still been considered old-fashioned then.
The crux of the problem, though, is that there are still enough Americans who either side with Moore or are so backward-thinking that they believe even he is better than the “liberal” alternative. There is a chance this slavery-loving pedophile could be elected to the Senate.
Roy Moore's story is truly an indicator of what Donald Trump's presidency means for the direction of this nation.
Donald Trump himself is a white supremacist sexual predator, and he was elected. All he’s done is facilitate hate and the careers of those who hate like him. Roy Moore is a danger to this nation. Let’s hope the good people of Alabama outweigh the bad ones come election day.
