The National Black Republican Association (NBRA) announced that they have endorsed Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate seat formerly held by Jeff Sessions.
The group based that decision on the following considerations:
“Judge Moore who shares our support of the Trump Agenda has over 40 years of public service, has been married to the same woman for 33 years and has four children and five grandchildren;
Judge Moore’s opponent, Doug Jones, is an ultra-liberal Democrat who does not support the Trump Agenda and is on the wrong side of a crucial life and death issue — the killing of innocent, unborn children.”
The group claimed that, “Doug Jones would not have voted to confirm Jeff Sessions as Attorney General and will vote in lock-step with the liberal Democrats in Congress who are now voting solidly against the Trump Agenda and, thus, against the economic progress and national security of our country.”
The NBRA claimed that, “The liberal media that functions as an advocacy arm of the Democratic Party” and dismissed the accusations from forty years ago against Moore as, “a political dirty trick.”
They added that, “Judge Moore has denied the allegations and, if any of the allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now, plus none of Judge Moore’s accusers ever filed a police report or a civil suit.”
They also charged that the, liberal media and Democrats are, “Hypocrites who are attacking Judge Moore now with mere allegations are tolerant of alleged, admitted and proven sexual abuse by liberal Democrats.”
To prove that point they point out there was no chorus of calls by the liberal media or Democratic Party leaders for the resignations of, President Bill Clinton for his many allegations of sexual misconduct, including a rape allegation by Juanita Broderick; the philandering of Senator Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., “including being involved in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne; Sen. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, for allegations of sexual misconduct by four women; Rep John Conyers, D-Michigan, for allegations of sexual misconduct; Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, for hiring his male lover, Stephen Gobie, as an administrative aide who operated a male prostitute business from the basement of Frank’s home; Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-California, for participating in a gay pride parade in San Francisco, marching with representatives of the North American Man-Boy Love Association who advocate sex between mature men and young boys; former Rep. Fred Richmond, D-New York, for being arrested in 1978 after soliciting sex from a 16-year-old) who still won re-election and remained in Congress before eventually resigning in 1982 after pleading guilty to tax evasion and drug possession; now deceased Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, for his being accused in the 1990s by numerous women of sexual harassment; now deceased former Rep. Gus Savage, D-Illinois, for having been accused of fondling a Peace Corps volunteer in 1989 while on a trip to Africa; now deceased former Rep. John Young (D-Texas) for having increased the salary of a staffer after she gave in to his sexual advances and who won re-election in 1976; and now deceased Rep. Gerry Studds, D-Massachusetts, for having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male page in 1983 and who stayed in Congress until he retired in 1997 when he was lauded by Democrats and honored with an award named after him called the “Congressman Gerry E. Studds Visibility Award.”
Judge Moore, speaking in Henager on Monday night, denied all of the accusations against him again and said that he did not even know any of those women.
Moore’s opponent, Clinton era U.S. Attorney Doug Jones who has been trailing in some recent polls, has resorted to putting childhood photos of Moore’s accusers in a recent ad campaign, even though Moore has never been charged or indicted for any crimes involving any of his accusers.
Despite the endorsement by the conservative Black Republicans, most Alabama Black voters typically vote for any Democratic Party candidate often by margins in excess of 90 percent. This election however pits one elderly White male attorney versus another elderly White male attorney. The Washington Post has reported their concerns that Black voters are not energized by the Jones campaign and won’t turn it in force on election day. Jones, for his part, has emphasized his prosecution of two former Klansmen for the 1963 Sixteenth Street Baptist Church bombing that killed four little girls. Moore meanwhile has actively sought and emphasized his endorsements by a number of Black pastors who share Moore’s conservative views on social issues like outlawing abortion, restoring the acknowledgment of God to government, and ending state sanctioned same-sex marriage.
The special election for the Senate seat is on Tuesday, December 12, 2017.
