Apparently the south DID rise last night... and hopefully people are paying attention. |
I know what will happen in 2020.
The point is, they proved that they will not just latch on to any charlatan who goes around quoting Bible verses. They showed how they embrace a man who shows Christian on the outside while being rotten to the core on the inside.
Having the weight of history and the world watching, they were not going to fool with a bigot who made comments that were pro-slavery. These were Roy Moore's words....not the New York Times, not MSNBC --- Roy Moore himself made bigoted comments.
Alabama said "While we are conservative as all get out ... we will not settle for just any fool they send down the pike...there's still a line that we have to draw here."
Now looking at analytics -- it appears that the majority of the votes for Moore came from the cities and in the 'black belt'...
Some of the high population suburban counties - just had lighter turnout.
Many of the white conservatives were a little less enthusiastic to participate this time.
Either way -- few would be foolish to think Alabama is turning the 'tide --- it's still Crimson Red (damn fools)....
But the message is that they can be pushed only so far ...
And the best takeway of the night....
Slimeball Bannon running from reporters and hurrying away in his Escalade....like a slug slithering back under a log...I swear there was a slime trail behind him.
