Doug Jones will make a loyal Democrat, if elected. Odd are that Roy Moore will win in conservative Alabama, where his love of the Ten Commandments is legendary.

I believe the United States of America is a land of laws, justice, freedom, equality, and opportunity.
I’ll take those values to the U.S. Senate and work hard for all the people of Alabama:
Everyone has the right to quality, affordable health care.
We must restore Alabama’s trust for its elected leaders.
I will defend a woman’s right to choose and stand with Planned Parenthood.
All children deserve a first-class education regardless of where they live.
College must be affordable without burdening a student with overwhelming debt.
I believe in science and will work to slow or reverse the impact of climate change.
It is past time we raise the minimum wage to a livable wage.
Women must be paid an equal wage for equal work at all levels.
Voter suppression is unAmerican – we must protect voting rights.
Discrimination cannot be tolerated or protected. America is best when it builds on diversity and is welcoming of the contributions of all.
Less than an hour ago, CBS News published a profile of Jones’ Republican opponent, Judge Roy Moore.
In 2003 he was removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for defying a federal order to remove a plaque of the Ten Commandments from his courthouse.
He was later re-elected to the court but was removed again last year for refusing to obey the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage.
He has called American Indians “reds” and Asian Americans “yellows.” He has called Islam a “false religion.” He’s said homosexual activity should be illegal. He reportedly said in February that the 9/11 attacks might have been punishment for America’s turning away from God.
And on Monday, he caused a stir by waving a gun during a campaign rally.
In our world of Kabuki theater, where much of what we see in the news is a psy op, Roy Moore will be a great big thumb in the eyes of the globalists. However entertaining that may be, he’s not racially aware.
Campaign speech racial controversy
During a campaign speech, Moore made comments about racial division that have widely been regarded as controversial.[according to whom?] Moore decried racial divisions plaguing the United States, and paraphrased children’s Sunday School Song “Jesus Loves the Little Children”, stating: “Now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting. What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together? A president? A Congress? No. It’s going to be God.” Moore’s campaign responded to a request for comment about his remarks stating that the candidate was referencing a children’s song appealing for racial healing.
There’s some evidence that Moore is a Zionist. The Jerusalem Post claims that Moore is a …
In 2015, he passionately opposed the US Supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex marriage would be legal nationwide, and claimed that forcing compliance with the order was similar to the Nazis forcing Germans to kill Jews during the Holocaust.
“Could I do this if I were in Nuremberg – say that I was following the orders of the highest authority to kill Jews? Could I say I was ordered to do so?” Moore said, asked whether he expected judges throughout the land to obey the law.
When a local journalist noted that the Nuremberg trials were not about gay marriage, but about killing people, Moore replied: “Is there a difference?” His wife, Kayla Moore, has made similar comparisons in recent years, including in a speech outside the Alabama State Capitol in the spring of 2016.
“There is a famous quote that I’ve read numerous times lately. When I read it you’ll know why. It’s at the US Holocaust Memorial museum,” she told a gathered crowd, calling for Christians to “stand up” against the gay-rights movement.
“It’s written by Pastor [Martin] Niemoller, about socialism and what happened to the Jews. But I’m gonna change it up just a little bit so that it’ll fit a little bit better into today and what we’re talking about,” she continued.
“First they came for the bakers. We sat back because we don’t bake cakes. Then they came for the florists. We sat back because we don’t arrange flowers. Then they came for the clerks and the judges, and we sat back because we don’t issue marriage licenses and we don’t judge. But then they came for me, and there was no one left to defend me.”
Kayla Moore was referring to cases in which conservatives Christians came under fire for refusing to work with same-sex weddings.
Steve Bannon supported Moore against his Republican opponent Luther Strange, who was backed by Trump and McConnell. The rebuke of Trump by Alabama voters in favor of populist Moore is nicely covered at Zerohedge.
