Despite having a history of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls, Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore continues to lead in the polls against opponent Doug Jones. As if that isn’t bad enough, Moore also told his rally that America hasn’t been great since the slavery days.
Moore’s belief about the slave days came after the only black person at his rally asked when America was last “great.” This is obviously a reference to Trump’s campaign slogan and Moore continually referencing the phrase.
“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.”
Moore’s racist sentiments didn’t stop there. In the same campaign event, he referred to Asian Americans and Native Americans as “reds and yellows.”
Moore also stirs trouble with his questionable interpretations of the Bible and applying that to his policy decisions. Moore had been removed from the bench in the past after refusing to take down a statue of the Ten Commandments at the courthouse where he worked.
At another campaign stop, Moore claimed that the September 11th terrorist attacks were a punishment by God.

Moore was also suspended from the bench after defying the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage.
“If they can make it between two men, they can make it between five men,” said Moore.
Will this type of talk stop if Moore wins the race?
“People ask, ‘Well, if you go to Congress are you going to say these things?’” he said. “If I go to Congress why wouldn’t I say these things? … If they don’t want that in Washington, then they better not get me up there.”
