Roy Moore, Donald Trump and the Repugnant Party

Trump Approval

Any report about Roy Moore that doesn’t specifically refer to him as a right-wing extremist is not worth your time. No more “firebrand.” No more impotent yap about his “controversial views.” Roy Moore is an extremist or the word no longer has meaning. If, as appears likely, he gets elected to the Senate from Alabama, then a majority of Alabama voters are extremists, too. If he gets elected, then the Republican Party ever more should be referred to as an extremist party. That, of course, is if we’re being honest about what’s really going on in this country in 2017.

And, no, when it comes to the people who voted for Moore, I don’t have to “respect their beliefs.” I don’t have to “understand where they’re coming from.” I don’t have to “see it from their side”...(I’m Out of Empathy. I’m Out of Pity. I’m Out of Patience.)

Rob's comment:
This goes for all Trump voters, not just Republicans in Alabama. People who vote for candidate for president who's a racist and brags about assaulting women are extremists whose views require no further examination or sympathy.
