Locked in a battle with Democrat Doug Jones for Jeff Sessions’ old Senate seat and with the the polls showing a close race, Roy Moore and his allies pulled out the “race war” card — that is, they put out a commercial saying that Jones wants to start a race war.
Some pro-Moore groups are taking an even more pointed approach to energize conservatives. One Moore-aligned group, Restore Our Godly Heritage PAC, is airing commercials on nearly 60 stations around the state accusing Jones of “trying to steal the election with vile, racist ads on black radio.”
“Desperate to steal this Senate race, Jones and his race-hustling allies are trying to start a race war and it’s only going to get worse in the final weekend, with millions of dollars in street money to turn out the vote,” it adds.
Today is the special election in Alabama. Alabama is either going to elect a Democrat, which hasn’t happened since Richard Shelby switched parties, or it’s going to elect a Christian Reconstructionist — read: Christian fascist — with (at the very least) white supremacist leanings.
