Once-regular WorldNetDaily columnist Janet Porter -- an Obama-hater and anti-abortion extremist -- writes only sporadically for WND these days, but she makes up for lost time in her Nov. 12 column, in which she fabricates an alternate history to defend Roy Moore:
Godly. Courageous. Unwavering. These are not words typically used to describe members of the United States Senate. Maybe that’s why there’s so much pushback against Judge Roy Moore, a godly, courageous and unwavering man, if ever there were one.
The Republican establishment couldn’t take him out, so now the fake news arm of the Democratic Party is at bat against the man who would rather lose his job on the Alabama Supreme Court than break one of the Ten Commandments or give up his right to display them.
But how do you attack a man of untarnished integrity?
When your target is so squeaky clean, there’s no mud to sling. Mud must be manufactured.
Here’s a glimpse at how:Amazon’s Jeff Bezos checks in on his $250 million investment by dropping by his Washington Post, which just endorsed Judge Moore’s opponent: “Judge Roy Moore is still up in the polls? What do I pay you people for?
“I’ve got it! Let’s hop on the Weinstein wagon and accuse him of something sexual.”
Such an outrageous suggestion couldn’t even pass a Washington Post straight-face test.
A young reporter, wanting to impress: “Hey, I got a woman who said Moore played the guitar and read her poetry when she was 18.”
“Will she say she was younger?”
“Not this one.”
“Then find someone else – did he ever sit next to an underage girl at the courthouse?”
“Yes … but she’s a self-admitted suicidal, drug-using, three-time divorcee who filed for bankruptcy three times, whose statute of limitations on her claim without a witness ran out 35 years ago.”
“What are you waiting for? Print it.”
And, on que, the gleeful Republican establishment lined up to repudiate an innocent man.
And on queue, a gleeful Moore supporter slimes an accuser because she can't discredit anything she says.
Porter then slobbers over Moore again, proclaiming him "the godly, courageous, unwavering candidate the establishment and the enemy want most to destroy."
As someone who embraced anti-Obama conspiracy theories, Porter is no stranger to spreading lies.
