Why Do Republicans Prefer A Pedophile To A Democrat? A Short History

People are appalled Republicans are sticking with accused pedophile Roy Moore, just as they were appalled they voted for admitted molester Donald Trump.

How did the Democratic Party become so toxic to these voters?

The answer?

40 years of relentless demonization of Democrats and liberals, with race at its heart.

Jen Sorenson’s cartoon above tells the story in three panels. (The fourth is the punchline.) Below is a slightly longer version.

Ronald Reagan began it with coded racism — Philadelphia MS and welfare queens — Democrats are the party of “those people.”

The “nice” Bush, HW — 41 — jump-started it in 1988 with the advice of Lee Atwater: “You can’t say the n-word, so say your taxes are going to ‘those people.’”

Frank Luntz and Newt Gingrich stirred Atwater’s pot with their “campaign in a box,” telling Republicans always to call Democrats key words like “corrupt," "devour," "greed," "hypocrisy," "liberal," "sick," and "traitor.”

At the heart of the 8 year jihad against Bill Clinton were Arkansas racists who allied with the more genteel Federalist Society “elves,” who included Kelly-Anne Conway’s husband. Bill Clinton was the late-term-abortion baby-killer champion of “those people,” despite Sister Souljah and welfare reform.

The Bush campaign (with generous help from Maureen Dowd and her gang of Beltway Heathers) added mockery to demonization, making Al Gore into a caricature of a lying, arrogant braggart.

9/11 and the drive to war in Iraq added the “treason” element, as ultimately-correct war opposition was made into aiding and abetting Osama.
For one election cycle, 2008, the near great depression overcame racism and demonization to elect Barack Obama.

But immediately afterward, the “Tea Party” — just a new branding of the old Republican coded racism and demonization — fueled the recurrence and metastacizing of the cancers of racism, nativism and demonization.

Added to this were appeals to the insecurity of the base — “Those condescending coastal elites want to force death panels and socialism down your throat. They’re laughing at you at their fancy colleges in the East and West.”

In 2016, the Republican cauldron was boiling over with these poisons plus toxic misogyny, and elected the perfect Republican candidate to stir the evil mixture with outright criminal accusations by a criminal candidate.

In 2017, any Democrat is treasonous, corrupt, favors open-borders, wants to give your taxes to minorities, lies, condescends and (gasp) may be an email-using woman.

Ol’ Roy may be a pedophile, but at least he’s not a Democrat.

Obviously if a candidate is proven to be a pedophile, he would be dropped. Plenty of history of false accusations, so accusations are always taken with a grain of salt.

Even when Don the Con was caught admitting sexually assaulting women on tape, IN HIS OWN VOICE !!!, you creeps still attacked the accusers. What does it feel like to live a phony life ?

Yeah, and so far there are only 30 people supplying evidence...

I mean you still believe Cosby is innocent ? Right?

Sauce for the goose....and all that

It is sad that such a large minority in the U.S. prioritizes partisanship ahead of citizenship, or even fundamental principle.

Apparently that's what it takes to get U.S. to where we are today. "President Trump"

Cosby has admitted his crime has he not? It is a very bad comparison.


Hearsay evidence is not admissible in court. One person is accusing but not taking it to court. Its lame.

Roy Moore may or may not be guilty of deviancy. It remains to be seen. Someone is lying for sure. Till it is shown who, the campaign of Roy Moore should continue unimpeded.

No, Cosby proclaims his innocence to this day. He has admitted he is black, which I assume you equate with guilt.

The legal avenue in the Roy Moore case is for Moore to sue his accusers for slandering his reputation.
He's not going to do that, because everything they are saying is true and he knows that.
He will lie on the Hannity Show, because that's OK, everyone lies on the Hannity Show.

True. False accusations are the name of this country's game when it comes to the ridiculousness of our political elections.

It's how the least desirable political candidates squeeze through at the expense of the more qualified and innocent candidates. None of us can tell the difference anymore between sleaze and innocent.

Ahh playing the race card. How typical of the Left.

Bill Cosby has admitted to obtaining quaaludes and drugging women. Perhaps Roy Moore will admit to something equally damning. If he does I will be advocating for his demise along with you. Perhaps the accuser will admit to something equally damning.


Till then Roy Moore is innocent and should continue the campaign.
