Wingnut Wrapup- You and the Horse You Rode In On Edition
Matt Vespa, Town Hall: "GAME OVER: Democrat Doug Jones Defeats Republican Roy Moore In Alabama; UPDATE: DRUDGE Says Luther Strange Would Have Won In A Landslide"
So would have George Washington, or since this is Alabama, the dug-up corpse of Lester Maddox. Too bad the Republicans didn't run one of them instead of a child raping right wing racist. But I guess Moore was their choice.
Brad Slager, Red State: "Wolf Blitzer and CNN Throw a Rave for the Doug Jones Victory"
So did every decent person in the country, Brad. With you guys in charge, decent people don't get much chance to be happy.
Jon Street, Red State: "Roy Moore’s Loss Is a Win For Republicans"
Keep telling yourself that, Jon.
Bill Mitchell: "Ok guys, strangest election I've ever seen. Roy Moore had leads of 12 and 8 points wiped out almost instantly. Huge chucks of uncontested votes coming in for Jones as he outvoted Moore by 70,000 votes in the final 35%. Very sketchy action in a red state."
Very sketchy. Right, Bill. That's not the way the vote went as far as I saw on Tuesday night, but maybe you were counting the absentee ballots just discovered in a box from Nazi Germany.
Raru, Red State: "Alabama just voted for an evil pro-abortion-on-demand nutcase. The Republican party is now dead."
Well, let's hope the last half of that is true, anyway.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "ALABAMA ELECTION RESULTS: Judge Roy Moore Against “Lynch Mob Media”
And here's the results: Roy Moore 650,436, Lynch mob media 0. Roy Moore Wins in Incredible Landslide!!!!!!!! Oh wait, Roy Moore wasn't running against the lynch mob media, he was running against Doug Jones. Sorry, Roy lost. Someone tell Jim, so he can move on to his next lie.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "GOP Spent $500,000 to Defeat Roy Moore"
See, the Democrats didn't win, the Republicans won! I knew that had to be the story. Everything is good news for Republicans, even having their own loathsome candidate defeated in the most Republican State in the country.
Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit: "Democrats, Smear Merchants, Liberal Media, GOPe, Mitch McConnell, Sen. Shelby, FINALLY Get a Win! Doug Jones Wins Alabama"
You know what, Jim? Everybody in America got a win when Roy Moore lost. Deal with it.
And the usual from the Gateway Pundit comment section:
"Vote fraud is the ONLY way for the corrupt establishment to cheat Moore. Period."
"They have to see how many votes they need to add in at the end to win it for Jones."
"OANN called it (for Moore) because they are using honest numbers. They didn't account for this kind of fraud. There is no doubt this is what the democrats are doing."
"NO doubt the Dems cheated. I bet we find out that folks from Mississippi voted, that dead people voted and that thousands of Roy Moore votes weren't even counted - Democrats cheat at everything they do."
"Congratulations Judge Moore! Now strap on your armor and head north to kick McConnell’s teeth in."
Just be sure not to fall off your horse on the way.
Thomas Lifson, American Thinker: "Al Franken lost big in the Alabama Senate race"
And here I didn't even know he was running.
Charlie Sperling, Breitbart: "Donald Trump: ‘Deck Was Stacked’ Against Roy Moore"
Yeah, the deck was stacked by Moore being a racist child molester who believes in slavery and taking the vote away from women. How unfair.
Donald Trump: "The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right!"
Because, see, Trump is always right, even though he also supported and campaigned for Roy Moore, whose views are almost identical to Trump's, including his views about his right to abuse women.
Breitbart: "Doug Jones is overwhelmed on his 25th wedding anniversary. He thanks the African-American community that delivered for him. He says “Happy Hanukkah” to all of his Jewish friends."
Dog whistle loud enough for you?
Tony Lee, Breitbart: "REPUBLICAN SABOTEURS FLIP SEAT TO DEMS"
And here I thought it was the voters who flipped the seat to the Dems. Sorry, I should follow politics more closely.
Amber Randall, Daily Caller: "Black Women Overwhelmingly Voted For Doug Jones"
No shit, Sherlock. Wonder why that happened.
Guy Benson, Town Hall: "Anatomy of a Stunner: How Roy Moore Lost an Unlosable Race in Alabama... the number one reason Doug Jones will be a US Senator -- hands down -- is that many traditional Republican voters either wrote in a candidate, crossed over for Jones, or (and this was the big one) sat at home"
Shocking! Translation: Moore Lost because less people voted for him than for the Democrat! Who would have ever figured that one out without the assistance of the wingnut media?
Star Parker, Town Hall: "Let's Liberate Blacks From Left-Wing Politics"
Yeah, let's liberate Blacks from all politics, or else they are going to vote for Democrats, because Republicans are a pack of hate filled racists. Star Parker is Black herself, but that doesn't stop her from being liberated from common decency.
Kurt Schlichter, Town Hall: "11 Things Every Real Conservative Should Ask On A First Date"
You mean, like, "Aren't you a little old to be dating a 14 year old?"
Ann Coulter, Town Hall: "Why I Secretly Wanted Moore To Lose: Brooks 2020!"
"Reverend" Mark H. Creech: "The real motive behind the opposition to Judge Roy Moore...This is really why the left hates Moore and will do whatever it takes to diminish or discredit him. He's an affront to the new guard – the new morality meant to supplant biblical values."
Biblical values like hatred, racism and greed. Man, I am so sick of these Evangelical perverts pushing their sick "religion" on us. 80 percent of white voters who self-identified as born-again or evangelical Christians voted for this corrupt pervert...76 percent of everyone else ― those who didn’t identify as white evangelical Christian ― voted for Jones. If you need a perfect example of why we want to supplant Evangelical "values," there it is.
And let's just finish with this spectacular specimen of not-at-all-fake-news:
Matt Vespa, Town Hall: "(Moore) took a swipe at the media for their coverage of his campaign. Moore was bombarded with stories about improper sexual conduct with multiple women. These incident occurred when the accused were teenagers."
Well, slap me upside the head! And here, I thought "the accused," (i.e. Roy Moore himself) was in his thirties, and the victims were teenagers! How could I have let myself be so deluded by the lying press?
