Roy Moore Runs for Old Seat

Apparently not satisfied with being little more than an afterthought while running for governor and president, Judge Roy Moore is now planning to run for his old seat on the Alabama Supreme Court again. The Washington Post reports:

Eight years after Roy Moore was removed from the post because of the monument dispute, he announced that he would run for the position again at a news conference on the steps of the Alabama Judicial Building in Montgomery. The 64-year-old Republican addressed the dispute in his remarks to the media and a couple dozen supporters.

“I have no plans to move the monument to Montgomery,” he said, but added that he will continue to acknowledge God…

Moore has said that lots of people have encouraged him to enter the Republican primary. He said he does not believe getting in the race behind the other two GOP candidates will hurt him, adding that he is well-known and voters know his judicial philosophy is conservative.

“There is no question that I know this job,” Moore said during Tuesday’s announcement. “And I believe the people of Alabama know exactly what I stand for.”

Yes. You stand for theo-fascism that is pretty much indistinguishable from the Taliban, including demanding that the government use “confinement and even execution” of gay people because the Bible says so.

    Given fundamentalists and evangelicals’ increasingly slavish devotion to Israel, it’d be interesting to see whether an opponent who perceived Roy Moore as a threat would bring up his repeatedly discriminating against Jews when he was a judge presiding in court. I’d like to see some more, “they’re eating their own”, moments.

    People forget the whole 10c thing was a rallying point for some Jewish lawyers who repeatedly suffered in court sessions presided over by then-Judge Moore simply because they were Jews. In fact some of those events were findings which made it in the transcripts used to eventually remove Mr. Moore from the bench.

    “It was never about the Ten Commandments,” he said. “It was about the one who gave the Ten Commandments.”

    Curiouser and curiouser. Did he mean by that to imply it was due to personal animus against him, or personal animus against God; and did he mean by that ambiguity to equate himself to God?

    And, like clockwork, Alabama’s state disease flares up again.

    Remember when Ed praised the Egyptian revolution with a naive and ill informed post about copts (soon to be slaughtered by btw) guarding muslims in tahrir square during prayer.

    now watch a great video of those muslims doing yet another ‘lara logan’ on an uncovered non-muslim woman in reality, not ed’s make believe politically correct delusion.

    this is what happens to uncovered non-muslim women in most of the islamic world. the surge of hundreds of men on a single woman with their hands ‘down low’ fondling and groping her.

    @ mrbongo

    Unless you can show that the Muslims who defended the Copts were the very same ones who abused the woman, you don’t have a point. Unless your point is “some Muslims are bad, therefore all are bad,” in which case… you still don’t have a point.

    No group is entirely good and no group is entirely evil. This gets even more significant the larger the group is — by using a simplistic label of “Muslim,” you’re creating an enormous group. Sorry, but life’s just not that simple. Even if you reduce the group down to 1, it’s still not always black-and-white. Otherwise good people can and will do bad things.

    You have to run – as in, like, a campaign – to get on the Alabama Supreme Court? You have to be political? Does not compute.

    @mrbongo

    Wrong thread.

    This is crap. The “islamic world” is as varied as the “christian world.” I worked in Egypt and the Persian Gulf (or, as they call it, the Arabian Gulf) for 3 years and saw lots of foreign women with bare heads and arms and never saw anyone molest any of them. For each example of Islamic culture police, there is an example of Christians doing the same thing. Lately we have an Amish Taliban, for Christ’s sake.

    Yeah, a thread which exists only in his own mind; which is why he failed to provide a link to that which he falsely claimed was true.

    To add to what ArtK said.

    Fred Phelps is a hate-filled piece of shit. It would then follow, in your twisted logic, that all christians are hate-filled pieces of shit.

    The devotion to Israel has nothing to do with liking Jews.

    I felt the whoosh from here.

    I’m not sure, because I don’t remember seeing a photo of Moore but does he look anything like this guy?
