Roy Moore Refuses to Concede Instead Releasing Terrifying Video Attacking Immorality
Roy Moore refused to concede the Alabama senate election in a fiery video statement released Wednesday night in which he warned “the heart and soul of our country is at stake”.
“Today, we no longer recognize the universal truth that God is the author of our life and liberty,” the former Republican candidate said. “Abortion, sodomy and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
He added: “Immorality sweeps over our land.”
Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones on Tuesday after facing multiple allegations of sexual assault during the campaign. In a statement released by the Moore campaign on Wednesday night, Moore said he was still waiting for the final vote count, which stands at present at 49.9% to 48.4%.
Alabama voting officials have said it is unlikely Jones will not be declared the winner. The Moore campaign can call for a recount , but would have to pay for it unless the margin is within half a percentage point.
Moore spoke from behind a shiny wooden desk, with a large statue of someone riding a horse and a decorative lamp in the background. In the statement, he quoted from Abraham Lincoln’s proclamation in March 1863 for a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer.
He then transitioned smoothly from Lincoln’s call for more humility to Moore’s own proclamation of the ills of the US.
“We have stopped prayer in our schools,” Moore said. “We have killed over 60 million of our unborn children. We have redefined marriage and destroyed the basis of family, which is the building block of our country.”
He continued to rail against a litany of other issues, including transgender rights (“We have even begun to recognize the right of a man to claim to be a woman, and vice versa”), the economy and campaign finance.
