Defeated, disgraced racist and pedophile Roy Moore released a video on Wednesday night in which he refused to concede defeat in the Alabama Senate race and railed against “abortion, sodomy, and materialism.”
In the nearly 5-minute video, Moore said he is waiting for certification from the Secretary of State’s office before conceding, since military and provisional ballots were still being counted.
Nearly every news organization called Democrat Doug Jones the winner of the Alabama Senate Election shortly before 10:30 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday night. But Jones, who will become the first Democrat to represent the state in two decades, cannot be seated until Alabama’s Secretary of State, John Merrill, certifies his win, which happen between December 26 and January 3.
In the video, Moore says,
We are indeed in a struggle to preserve our republic, our civilization and our religion and to set free a suffering humanity. Today, we no longer recognize the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty. Abortion, sodomy and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
We have stopped prayer in our schools. We have killed over 60 million of our unborn children. We have redefined marriage and destroyed the basis of family….We have even begun to recognize the right of a man to claim to be a woman, and vice versa….Immorality sweeps over our land.
Surely that last line is one of the most ironic statements pedophile Moore has ever made.
On Thursday, Senator-elect Doug Jones called on Moore to concede the results of last Tuesday’s special election for the benefit of Alabamians, telling NBC’s Today show that it is time to “get this behind us”:
Well, I understand the frustration a little bit. It is a close race. But I’d say, look, it’s time to move on. I mean this is—every race is tough. It’s bitter sometimes. I think this one was one that people of Alabama have now spoken a little bit, and they decided to heal. Our campaign has been about that. It’s been about trying to find common ground and heal. And I think he would do well to just go ahead, let’s get this behind us, so the people of Alabama can get someone in there and start working for them.
Jones said his victory was a “combination” of voters who cast ballots in support of him and those who voted against Moore:
Every election is a combination of your message as well as your opponent’s. And in this race, there’s no question, we had the wind at our back. Obviously, Roy Moore has his issues, with his record and all of the disturbing allegations. But that’s okay. I’m fine with that because if people in this state reject that kind of politics, I think that’s a very good thing.
