This is #1 of the SEVEN most CONTROVERSIAL STATEMENTS Politico says Roy Moore has made, and frankly, it’s a big nothingburger. Read the other six, you’ll like him even more.
Moore last week ostensibly made a plea for unity at a rally in Florence, describing how the Civil War had torn Americans part, pitting brother against brother, the North against the South and Republicans against Democrats.
“Now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting,” he said, apparently referring to Native Americans and Asian Americans by the ethnic slurs “reds and yellows.”
“What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together?” he continued. “A president? A Congress? No. It’s going to be God.”
Moore’s campaign defended his rhetoric by pointing to the religious song “Jesus Loves the Little Children,” which says Jesus loves “all the children of the world” — “red, brown, yellow, black and white.”
