Do you know why the left treats Republican voters like idiots? Because they are

Two stories work for me.

First this: GOPe Spent $500,000 to Defeat Roy Moore and Campaigned Against Him — Then Trashes Steve Bannon When He Loses!

And then this: MASSIVE DEMOCRAT TURNOUT In Alabama — GOP Turnout 50% of 2016; Democrat Turnout 92% of 2016.

You know what it shows? It shows that Republicans are no smarter than the Swedes. The Democrats must laugh at the simpletons who have voted in someone whose values are at the far end of the Democrat extreme. The probability that Moore did any of what has been alleged is zero other than what should not matter in the slightest, that he dated young girls when he was in his thirties. To let this influence a vote towards the Party of Bill Clinton and Al Franken is grotesque.

Speaking of which, just when will Franken be leaving the Senate exactly?

    So we now agree that adults fucking teenagers is cool as long as they are nominally conservative and it isn’t dicovered for a number of years.

    That’s cool. I’m having trouble keeping up with the rules so I’m just taking notes.

    I myself have titty groped many a teenager and I don’t want it on my record when I run for office. Of course I was a teenager at the time.

    He will not be leaving at all. That press conference where he announced a non-resignation was to take the heat off Democrat leadership. Now that the Alabama by-election is over he’s in the clear again.

    If you are gay then it’s OK as long as you are not a conservative. I believe the film “Call me by you name” is expected to win at the next Oscars and is just about such a situation – an older male and a teenage boy. But Milo had to be drummed out of polite society.

    The way I see it now, right or wrong depends on your identity and political orientation, character is situational.

  11. Pyrmonter

    Oh, for heavens’ sake. Moore was appalling; Bannon is taking the respectable causes of American Conservatism into the sewer. From the GOP’s long term perspective (that is, in dealing with a likely progressive Democrat in the Whitehouse after 2020) not having the millstone of the accusation against Moore hanging around their necks can only improve the chances that the thought of Buckley and Kirk, or better still, Smith and Hayek, might be reflected in a sane, responsible government.

    Hopefully Bannon is now toast. Trump is reportedly furious with him.

  13. Digger

    The Democrats and the media now have their modus operandi to bring down Trump and it is “sexual harassment/misconduct”.

    They will stop at nothing to achieve their objective.

    The more actors, Democrats, other politicians they can drag into their “take no prisoners and destroy careers” strategy, the better it will work when they get 20 or so paid or unpaid collaborators to start on Trump… There is no defence when the mob gets fired up to attack using the sexual harassment/misconduct platform…

  14. Rob MW

    Bannon and the movement need to take a leaf out of the Socialists playbook, “Gradualism” and hasten slowly. Also not jumping on board an old two gun toting, bible-bashing, half crazy candidate who already had an intact 100% perfect winning record at losing. Nuff said even without defending the sensibilities of groping new age third tier feminists. When you’re fucked; you’re fucked.

    Mo Brooks was far and away the best candidate to hold this Alabama Senate seat for Trump’s agenda, if only the Alabama Republicans had not been so stupid in their primaries.

  15. Fisky

    Oh, for heavens’ sake. Moore was appalling; Bannon is taking the respectable causes of American Conservatism into the sewer.

    The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!

    If only Steve Kates would listen to Donald.

  17. So, despite Steve’s demonstration, certain Cats believe the 40 year old allegations dumped a month before the election by card carrying Democrats are plausible, despite these allegations not even going anywhere near the police?

    Considering Muttley is a partisan Democrat/ALP hack, Cats believing this bollocks are even bigger idiots than Muttley.

    Worse, they are now officially useful idiots who can be relied upon to support every fake allegation without pay

    Quite possibly Muttley gets paid to campaign for the Left.

    Muttley, hand over those rakes. You are no longer worthy.

    When Trump is yet again accused of sexual misconduct, his press secretary says that this issue has been settled in the court of public opinion, namely at the ballot box. I wonder if trump is happy to apply the same standard to bill clinton? Anyway, It follows that the same is true for Roy Moore.

  24. Oh come on

    Bannon is an idiot. I don’t think he had a significant impact on the outcome of this race, but if he did, even more reason to get rid of him. Bannon is a hanger-on, not a harbinger.

    Either way, Bannon is done. Time to let him go. And seriously, has the WH been better or worse since his departure?

  25. Oh come on

    Borry, Clinton was impeached in his second term. There is no comparison between Trump and Clinton.

  26. Token

    There is no comparison between Trump and Clinton.

    Trump never told a woman she should get some ice on the bruises he inflicted on her. He has never been on the Lolita Express.

    No comparison.

  27. Oh come on

    It’s not so much if Trump is happy to hold Clinton to the same standard; it’s more an issue of whether the people who justified the means for the end in the case of Clinton are willing to accept that their political opponents also justify the means for the end in the case of Trump.

    They won’t. You can bank on hypocrisy. I agree that Republicans did their utmost to get rid of Clinton, but the seminal lesson is that it didn’t work. You would think that the Dems would have learnt this, and maybe they have. Maybe this is all smoke and fury that’s going nowhere. OTOH, when you get a head of steam up, you can also lose control of the momentum because of the people behind you and they take you to places you didn’t plan to go.

    Impeaching Trump based on what we already know would be a colossal blunder.

  30. Dave of Reedy Creek, Qld

    Have followed the US political mess for a while now, could be wrong in my assumptions but there is a trend appearing. Every time a right wing Republican comes up for election, they have women coming out of their past to make what seems like far fetched accusations. Gee, its a bit obvious when someone supposedly has been sitting on a complaint for over 40 years suddenly showing up to make dire complaints on the verge of an election! After the Bill Clinton sexscapades that were covered up and glossed over I am now a total cynic of the leftists in every shape and form. Maybe the people of Alabama are keen on their abortions, as the new senator elect is the man to keep it rolling along.

  31. Crossie

    Maybe the people of Alabama are keen on their abortions, as the new senator elect is the man to keep it rolling along.

    All those evangelical Christians seem unfazed by baby killing but even just accusations of sleaze and you’re out.

  32. John Comnenus

    Republicans and Christian conservatives will be the group punished most heavily for all the Lefties being outed for sexual harassment and assault. And the Left will win power by these means.

    Seriously Moore was an idiot not to immediately bring fraud charges against the manifestly fraudelent claimant and her lawyer. The GOP must realise they will never be allowed to win whenever every important candidate has implausible 40year old allegations that aren’t even necessarily criminal. They need to fight back and destroy the liars. You cannot pick anyone pure enough who is immune to made up, ancient and vague charges.

  33. classical_hero

    Remember, what the left accuse you o doing, then are doing that themselves. We saw it with the sexual assault claims that have destroyed many n the left, but they first went after Trump, but it backfired spectacularly.

  34. Sinclair Davidson

    he dated young girls when he was in his thirties.

    People go to jail for this sort of thing.

  35. Mother Lode

    The media was delirious when the Dhimmicrats called them and told them there were women making salacious allegations against Moore.

    They likely feel they have some of their mojo back, and even if Trump is too quick and precise to take on directly, they can destroy each Republican in turn to neuter him.

    It is even more imperative that the fifth column be chastised for making rather than reporting news.

    I really think these women (and I am pretty sure they were all just fakes) should be hauled before the courts and exposed.

    Put a stink on the tactic to make the Dhimmi’s balk at doing it again.

    It is funny, but for all the accusations the left make that the right is patriarchal and engaged in a never-ending war against women, they know that one thing that puts off the right is abusing women.

    Everything the left uses to denigrate the right they use precisely because it is not true. They are not racists, not anti-woman, not plutocrats who destroy jobs, not environmental vandals, and so on.

  36. Mother Lode

    I wonder if trump is happy to apply the same standard to bill clinton?

    When Al Franken his yes-maybe-no resignation speech, he spoke of the ‘irony’ that the President was recorded on tape admitting to serial sexual assaults.

    What Franken in fact admitted (he could hardly deny the photographs) was real and much worse than what Trump actually said, that groupies are attracted to power and will let you (i.e. give their consent) to touch them as Franken does when they are unconscious.

    And, did Trump actually say he did that? Or was he describing the what groupies were like, and the ‘you’ is a generic ‘you’ – like telling someone how to boil an egg even if they have never done it “First you put the eggs in the water…”

    I hope really bad things happen to Franken. Slowly.

  37. Bruce of Newcastle

    I described some of the dirty tricks from the Dems on the OT last night, but I didn’t go into the money. That has been its own deep black zone. Here is an article today on it:

    Who Really Lost In Alabama

    The tide of cash swirled, eddied and drifted along the secret rivers that flowed from Washington D.C. and San Francisco, from Las Vegas and New York City, and decided an election. Timed spending meant that they could avoid revealing their donors. And the biggest spender in the race had no money.

    Some of these rivers had strange names.

    There was Highway 31.The real Highway 31 links Alabama to Michigan. But the Highway 31 SuperPAC was a money route worth over $4 million leading back to Washington D.C. and New York City. Behind the local name were Senate Schumer’s Senate Majority PAC and the Obama/Hillary Priorities USA Action which was best known for a slimy ad accusing Mitt Romney of killing a steelworker’s wife.

    Stand Up Republic claims to be fighting for “democratic norms”. McMullin claims to be a Never Trumper conservative. Neither claim holds up very well considering that the only known donor to SUR is Persian billionaire Pierre Omidyar who provided $250,000 to McMullin’s group. The Franco-Persian tycoon is best known for funding The Intercept, a radical left-wing site that specializes in undermining national security and which will be forever linked to the Snowden spy case.

    RTWT for much more. I wonder if Shanghai Sam could get a job with that nice Mr Omidyar?

  38. Mother Lode

    like telling someone how to boil an egg even if they have never done it “First you put the eggs in the water…”

    Perhaps not the best example since said person might do it in the future.

    Perhaps a mechanic talking about replace bearings on a car – something I will never do.

  39. Malcolm

    Nutty Kates wants Trump to be a dictator and ban elections. He cannot contemplate his hero being kicked out by the voters at the next election. Well he will be gone then so stuff you Kates

  40. Mother Lode

    Nutty Kates wants Trump to be a dictator and ban elections.

    Classic lefty bullshit.

    First make a claim which does not reflect what a person said. Then you proceed from there as if you are brilliantly debating the person named, whereas you are only poking fun at the image you conjured up yourself.

    It is the difference between doing something, and miming doing something.

    Shock horror. Most people in their 30’s still imagine themselves as young, as if there is no distance between 38 and 18. Once you get into your 40’s, this fiction becomes harder to maintain.

    Anyhow, ignoring IT’s moralising, here is another take:

    “….lots of 32-year-old men chasing 19-year-old girls – the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer, to cite only the most obvious example. It was a common plot in big worldwide hits: When the Oscar-winning Best Picture An American in Paris was shot, Leslie Caron was 19, and Gene Kelly was pushing 40; when the original Broadway production of My Fair Lady opened, Julie Andrews was 19, and Rex Harrison was pushing 50. You can’t find a single contemporary review of either that so much as notices the age difference. My old friend Alan Jay Lerner authored both scripts and won Oscars and Tonys respectively, and, as a practical matter, it was the only plot he knew how to write: My Fair Lady (1956) – older, sophisticated, mature bachelor takes young unformed girl in hand and moulds her; Gigi (1958) – older, sophisticated, mature bachelor takes young unformed girl, etc, etc; Lolita, My Love (1971) – older, sophisticated mature, etc, etc, etc …ah, but that was one reprise too many of “Thank Heaven for Little Girls”.

    As Alabama’s most eligible bachelor, Roy Moore liked nubile young women, and nubile means “marriageable” (from the Latin, nubilis). Indeed, he eventually married one of them..”

    RTWT

  45. candy

    Not correct to blame the voters.
    This Moore character sounds dubious but no-one knows what to believe anymore from the media, because it’s not about truth. It’s difficult to form any opinion when you can’t trust the media. Any hint of inappropriateness in someone and voters run a mile, so as not to be associated, just in case someone finds out they voted for them and then there’s trouble.

  46. Rob MW

    he dated young girls when he was in his thirties.

    People go to jail for this sort of thing.

    Yes Sinc, they should put a ban on older people dating younger people…….oh wait…… half the old cronies in Hollywood and New York, particularly the older haggled women with their toy boys, would fill the total space currently provided in the US to house criminals. The big boss of Murdoch press particularly and Sony Entertainment in general might be a big obstacle.

  47. struth

    Here’s my take on it.
    You vote right wing no matter what the sexual allegation.
    As right wing as you can.
    The people the left will let in will actually sexually attack children in much greater numbers.

    Whether this bloke did it or not is irrelevant and unproven.
    The rape and sexually abuse of minors by cultures the left will import will be far more damaging.

  48. v_maet

    You know something is odd when more african americans turn out to vote for Doug Jones in a mid term senate run than voted for Obama in 2008.

    Also odd that the 2 biggest democrat counties held off reporting on their results until the very end when they knew how much they would have to report to get the win.

    From that comment it’s obvious you have spent little time on the Roy Moore subject.
    Age of consent in Alabama 16. (Was 14 until the 60s I believe)
    Not a single woman, not one said they had sex with Moore.
    Of the 7-8 who told stories, only 2 come even close to an illegal act. Others were 17-20 year olds he dated, according to their claims.
    One has been discredited already. The Bev Nelson forger of year-books.
    The other claims Moore took her to his place, pashed with her but when she got nervous, asked him to take her home which he duly did. But her story has holes in it as well.

    All of this shit from 40 years ago….40…..FORTY FRIGGING years. Moore was in the public sphere and a polarising figure for many of those 40 years. Was elected as judge. Not once did anybody come out with these accusations. Not even whispers, for those claiming the women are now empowered due to the many sex scandals coming out now.

    This was a political hit job in a country with the dirtiest politics. Moore was attacked on both sides just as Trump was. Moore is no Trump.
    This is now a template that will be used by the filthy Dems at every opportunity.

    p.s. Did y’all see the woman accusing Trump of inappropriate behaviour during one of those Miss World contests? She appeared on the Trump hater Megyn Kelly’s show and claimed Trump walked into the dressing room while she was NAKED UNDER HER DRESSING ROBE.
    Let that tid bit sink in.

  50. Oh come on

    Now that Moore has lost, the very best outcome I can think of would be for Franken to stay. I don’t think it’ll happen, though. Franken staying completely screws up the Dem morality play they’re hoping to use against Trump. I don’t think Franken is important enough to convince them to pull that punch. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. If Moore had won, Franken would have had more cover to make the argument that he ought to stay.

  51. Oh come on

    FFS time to let Moore go, already. Why are you still prosecuting his case? He’s done, move on.

  53. struth

    Women who didn’t come forward immediately after sexual abuse occurred are accomplices to the next act of abuse.
    Finding you don’t need to tell anyone about it until you become “empowered” by a political election 40 years later is the biggest crock of shit expected to be gobbled up you can think of.
    It should have been dismissed out of hand, the women threatened with being charged with accessory to the crimes if anything is found to have occurred after the date they claimed it occurred to them, and they did not report it

    The whole thing , with true justice, and personal responsibility is easily reversed.

    Equality is a woman’s right it seems, even though it is completely unearned.
    Screaming banshees are ruining the west, and as we have seen above, the men have been neutered in schools, well and truly before they get to an age to fight it.

    “….lots of 32-year-old men chasing 19-year-old girls – the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana Spencer, to cite only the most obvious example.

    As Alabama’s most eligible bachelor, Roy Moore liked nubile young women, and nubile means “marriageable” (from the Latin, nubilis). Indeed, he eventually married one of them..”

    And if Moore had simply said, “Well, I had an active dating life back then, and occasionally some of the women I dated were in their late teens, but it was all very courtly and nothing untoward happened” then it would have been fine. But he was so damned shifty about even the lesser of the allegations that he rapidly loses any benefit of the doubt over the more serious allegations, and voters were left to draw the obvious conclusion.

    Plus, I don’t think Prince Charles was ever banned from the local mall.

  59. Snoopy

    Not even lefty Snopes.com would confirm that Moore was banned from the local mall. Rumour and unsubstantiated hearsay.

  60. Louis

    It’s the correction they needed to have. Maybe now Bannon can be shown the door from the movement.

  61. Boris

    People selectively copying from Steeb. Have integrity to start from the top of the article, where he demonstrates what an idiot Moore is.

  62. Speedbox

    Women who didn’t come forward immediately after sexual abuse occurred are accomplices to the next act of abuse.

    Yeah, I have quite a bit of sympathy for that point. Putting aside this election result in the US, I am astonished that any person would conceal a serious criminal act (allegedly) visited upon themselves for 20-30-40 years. I understand that some may be reluctant but really……..40 years!

    And, we are not talking about some minor offence. Allegations include serious sexual assault and others that have distinct connotations towards child abuse. Critically, since the alleged attack on the victim, the victim has come to hold subjective knowledge of attacks against other persons. Yet, the early victim has never made any report to the authorities.

    Well, sorry but the early victims of these alleged attacks can’t have it all ways. Either report the offence or, face the prospect of being charged with concealment particularly for serious indictable offences. Alternatively, shut up forever and deal privately with your conscience.

  63. Felix Kruell

    The low turnout by republicans is simply an indication they found Moore unelectable, but couldn’t bring themselves to vote Democrat. Fair enough. In that basis, the result doesn’t really tell us whether Alabama is now in play for the Democrats in general.

    I found the allegations against Moore believable, and more a moral failing than a legal one (none I saw were allegations of actual illegal activity).

    The bigger issue for me was Moore’s wilful disregard of the law where it went against his views. His removal as a Supreme Court Justice, and his behaviour on the recent SSM marriage cases being excellent examples.

  64. BorisG

    Do you know why the left treats Republican voters like idiots? Because they are

    Blaming voters! That is exactly what the left were doing when Trump won. And Steve Kates can’t see the irony!

  65. Rebel with cause

    Moore didn’t handle the allegations well. Republicans should know by now to expect every piece of dirt to be dug and every bit of mud to be thrown. The correct response to these allegations is to scoff and mock because, as Trump has shown, most voters don’t care. But Moore got unsettled and gave shifty answers and that turned off people from voting for him.

    Second, the GOP has to improve their ground game. The get out the vote effort should be the top focus of the campaign. Again Trump was constant in reminding supporters of the importance of voting.

    People over thirty go to jail for many things. I doubt you can produce evidence for any going to jail for “dating” any girls above the age of consent.

    Sinclair will be here shortly with that evidence. Any time now.

    Let me stand corrected: it seems Rolf Harris didn’t go to jail.

    Kates has a wilful ignorance of fault in his preferred politicians. One who is a grub and a liar, among other things. Another whose judgement is so lacking that he pursued young girls at the same time he pursued public office. One can only conclude that Kates is one of them.
    The tin ear is what is making people mad and it’s not just the blind self interest of official Washington that folk resent. The Bannons and Trumps and Moores are just as unsanitinary as the Clinton bilge and the Shorten ticket clippers.

    I think we all know that Libertarians are extremely gullible people who believe whatever they are told by anyone on television.
    I mean just look at Open Borders.

    The fact that so many actually believe the stories just proves what Steve Kates was all about. All we had was hearsay and conjecture, yet to many that’s just enough for them to say OK. What a bunch of cucks.

    If last night’s election proved anything, it proved that we need to put up GREAT Republican candidates to increase the razor thin margins in both the House and Senate.

    Kates, Trump thinks you need to calm down. Listen to him.

    The same people who have criticised Moore have been totally silent of Robert Menendez, the senator from New Jersey who was accused of using under age prostitutes. The whole thing speaks of the hypocrisy of many people.
