Roy Moore and the Democrats

December 11, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |


If Moore wins the Senate race, he will be a highly prominent national figure, instantly more famous than 95 percent of the rest of the Senate and Congress. This fascist fanatic will have an even bigger platform to run his lunacy as a “legitimate voice.” He will further fan the flames of naked white supremacy and the restoration of untrammeled patriarchy and degradation of women which, along with extreme American chauvinism and a program of global aggression and war, form the reactionary triad at the core of the whole Trump/Pence fascist regime.

But here’s a question to seriously think about and come to grips with: Where are Nancy Piglosi, Schmuck Fumer and other Democratic Party establishment figures denouncing the Christian fascist theocrat who may soon take a seat in the Senate? Where are their calls to walk out and bring business as usual to a stop if Moore should get elected? There are none.

The fact that a theocratic fanatic like Roy Moore has gotten this far—and that the Trump/Pence regime and the Republican Party have fully backed him, without any real opposition from the Democrats, and that all this is just digested into and normalized by the “24-hour news cycle”—says a lot of how far things have gotten. It says a lot about how all this could quickly go much further down the path of a Christian fascist theocracy in America. It says a lot about the urgency to jump into the fight to defeat this. And it says how this struggle must NOT rely on the leaders of the Democratic Party.
