Of course, some of us missed the initial accusation of anti-Semitism.
We must have been distracted by the numerous charges of child molestation, homophobia, and racism. Silly us.
The accusation she’s probably referring to started flying last week when Roy Moore attacked liberal billionaire George Soros, who also happens to be Jewish. Without citing any evidence, Moore accused Soros of “financing the registration of former felons to vote in Alabama,” presumably in an effort to get Democrat Doug Jones elected over Moore.
Referring to Soros, Moore said, “No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going. And that’s not a good place.”
Many believed this comment was anti-Semitic, probably because it is.
Kayla thought it wise to defend Roy Moore from these accusations of anti-Semitism using an age-old (yet entirely terrible) tactic: "I can't hate ____________. I have ____________ friends!"
Yes, folks, she actually said this. And the worst part is, she believed it. She believed that saying, “One of our attorneys is a Jew!” would prove that she and her husband were really truly huge fans of Jewish people.
The video is even worse than what you heard in your head when you read her words. We promise:
How cringeworthy is that? How obviously utterly anti-Semitic do you think the Moores are after listening to that? She couldn’t even say, “One of our attorneys is Jewish.” She called him a Jew.
Let me tell you, from one Jew to you, only Jews can call themselves Jews. If you are not Jewish and you call someone a Jew, that’s gross. And offensive. And anti-Semitic.
But it’s not just the word she used that got people so riled up…
