Alabama GOP now openly defending pedophilia in defense of Roy Moore

In the wake of the Washington Post’s blockbuster story today that four women have accused Alabama Republican US Senate candidate Roy Moore of inappropriately touching them while they were teenagers aged 14 to 18, and Moore was in his 30s, Alabama Republicans are circling the wagons by openly defending pedophilia.

Moore, a fire-and-brimstone anti-gay family values crusader is running against Democrat Doug Jones for Jeff Sessions US Senate seat in a special election taking place next month on December 12.

Moore is accused of, among other things, “dating” a 14-year-old girl in 1979, who he took to his home in the woods, took off her and his clothes, touched her breasts and her crotch through her underwear, then attempted to put her hand on his erect penis through his underwear. Moore was 32 at the time.

Moore’s defense is that the women’s allegations were cooked up by Barack Obama and the Clintons. Which is a pretty tricky move, considering the 14-year-old told her friend in 1979 that she was dating a man named “Roy Moore.” Did President Obama take Hillary and Bill back in their time machine to 1979 to set Moore up?

Not to mention, the worst story about the 14-year-old, comes from a woman who voted for Trump.

Even worse is the defense of Moore being made by Alabama Republicans. They’re literally unbelievable. First we have the “Mary and Joseph did it” defense:

Then comes the “undressing 14 year old girls is much ado about nothing”:

If you accept the Washington Post story as being completely true, Roy Moore at age 32 undressed a 14-year-old girl, touch her breasts and crotch, and then tried to put her hand on his erect penis. It’s child abuse.

Actually, she’s saying that he undressed her, undressed himself, grabbed her breast and her crotch, and then tried to put her 14-year-old hand on his 32-year-old erect penis.

And finally, the team from “pedophilia is okay if you’re horny” weighs in:

Republicans in the Senate were all handed the same talking point, which they’ve dutifully repeated en masse — namely, that “if” the allegations are proven true, Moore should step down. But until that happens, they’re happy to endorse Roy More.

    So……..you think it’s perverted to sexually molest underage boys, but it’s not perverted (and seems to be perfectly fine as far as you’re concerned) to sexually molest underage girls.
    Well, alrighty then. I’d sure keep my young teenage daughters way the hell away from you.
    Pervert.

  • commonsense4sure

    At least he liked girls and wasn’t a pervert that liked young boys!

  • The same person keeps creating sock puppets. As fast as they are banned, he comes up with another one.
    He will eventually get bored and go away.

  • Sock puppets are out of here. You and your other persona are banned.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Who has the can of Troll – Away?

  • Andre Maxwell

    They don’t like the whole story on this site. Just the parts that confirm their beliefs. It is unfortunate.

  • Germany France

    Why do you keep blocking people who have opposing views.

  • Germany France

    No he does not. But he is valorized as a spokesperson for marginalized groups

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    That’s true, but George Takei doesn’t want to be an U.S. senator.

  • fighting mules

    What a divided world we live in. They defend Moore. We defend Takei.

  • fighting mules

    really? I’ll be back numbnuts.

  • marknc

    Actually, you are saying that Bill Clinton is a Dem and you want him in jail no matter what, AND you would offer your own 14 yo daughter for Roy Moore to molest (with a grin on your face while you watch) to prove your absolute loyalty to the Republican Party (is that the 4th Reich? – what do you guys call it these days?).

  • marknc

    Actually, that’s probably not exactly right. What will happen is that about a dozen Republicans (can you say John McCain) will openly denounce Roy Moore’s behavior. And then, after the camera is turned off – they will laugh, share a drink, and give him a BIIIIIG welcome hug and want to hear stories about how firm and tight the 14 yo girls are.

  • marknc

    Which makes him a hero in Republicanland

  • You are out of here. Bye.

  • hes never been more alive

    I’m saying that sex in the oval office and lying under oath, and a lifetime of using power to have sex is right up there.

  • ComradeRutherford

    GOP says, “We simply don’t understand how pedophilia is wrong. Even if these unfounded allegations are true, so what? What 32 year old man *doesn’t* want to have sex with a 14 year old.”

  • angryspittle

    Yep, that is what he is saying……..

  • angryspittle

    If this skeevy fucker is elected he will be in violation of his oath of office as he is taking it. He has already shown that he puts the bible over the constitution. Was tossed out of office twice for violating the damn document.

  • jeffconn

    So you’re saying consensual sex between two adults is the same as statutory rape.

  • Demosthenes

    In the likely event he wins, the Trump GOP Senate will welcome Roy Moore with open arms. Party over country; always.

  • Tom Ersin
  • hes never been more alive

    “Alabama GOP now openly defending pedophilia in defense of Roy Moore”

    And blast from the past:

    Progressive feminists openly defending slimeball Bill Clinton

  • Carol Sh

    Or, of course, if it was a boy.

  • goulo

    Zeigler also tried to minimize it, saying this:

    “He went a little too far and he stopped.” Had the girl been 16 at the time and not 14, he added, “it would have been perfectly acceptable.”

    I’d love to see the very different Republican reaction if it had been a Democrat who’d done this. Not so much with the rationalizing and defending pedophilia in that case, I suspect…
