Alabama's Largest Newspapers Call Out Roy Moore for Sexual Abuse of Children and a 'Pathological Fixation' on Sex

Hmm, seems Alabama Media is getting it right - Wonder why it is taking their incestuous hillbillies so long to catch on?

 

A consortium of Alabama newspapers called on voters over the weekend to reject Republican Senate Roy Moore because of his alleged history of abusing women and children.

 

In a column Saturday, the Al.com editorial board argues that the “election is a turning point for women in Alabama.”

 

“Every day new allegations arise that illustrate a pattern of a man in his 30s strutting through town like the cock of the walk, courting and preying on young women and girls,” the editorial board writes.

 

The piece notes that Al.com has independently investigated the claims of women who report that they were sexually abused by Moore at ages as young as 14.

The seriousness of these incidents, including one involving a 14-year-old child, cannot be overstated. Nor can the growing number of accusations — from the women who were at the receiving end of unwanted adult male overtures as teens, to those who say they were physically assaulted — be parsed with talk of statutes of limitations or whether proof has been recorded on a stone tablet. In the American system, proof beyond a reasonable doubt is a consideration for the courtroom, not the ballot box. It is our job as voters to look closely at the candidates and make up our own minds.

“This election has become a referendum on whether we will accept this kind of behavior from our leaders,” the paper continues. “We each know someone in our lives who is a survivor of sexual assault or child abuse. Many of us are still searching for the words needed to tell our own stories and some may never find that voice. This election is about them.”

 

The editors add: “This utter disregard for people unlike himself, his pathological fixation on sex, and the steps he’s taken to actively diminish other people’s freedoms, is more than enough to have disqualified him from this office long before these women stepped into the public eye.”

In the end, the editors of Al.com suggest that voters cast their ballots for Democratic candidate Doug Jones or write in a candidate other than Moore.

Let's see ... AL.com is connected to something called the Alabama Media Group which is composed of the Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times, the Press Register and the Mississippi Press.    Since all the papers are owned by the same group, I imagine they all share the same politics.  And as Wikipedia notes (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Birmingham_News ), when it was founded back in 1909 by a guy named Hanson, the News was "staunchly progressive in its political stance" and "supported a straight-ticket Democrat platform in election seasons".  Is it really any less progressive than it was back then?  I suspect not since in 2016 it endorsed Hillary.  So did the other papers.  Indeed, the AL.com group officially endorsed Hillary, saying "Trump must not win".   So I wonder how unbiased this consortium is, shintao?  And how representative of Alabama it it, especially considering the fact that Alabama voters gave Trump the victory in 2016 by 62.1% to 34.4%, a 27.7% margin.    Sounds to me that AL.com and it's papers are out of touch with Alabama's voters.  Just saying ...

And there you go - spouting floods of crap, desperately doing ANYTHING YOU CAN to shield and protect a child molester.

 

Shouldn't you stalk Zaro some more now - chasing her from thread to thread, obsessively demanding she tell you that she is 'underage" and "sixteen", you pedophile freak?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha, the largest urban sprawl creed  used to be the medium of social narratives has launched its last gasp of societal significance to arranging the outcome of all surviving ancestors being eternally separated now by intellectual time lines and deadlines of maybe.
