Roy Moore Dead-Enders Hang On At WND
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The pro-Roy Moore dead-enders at WorldNetDaily are clinging to their failed candidate.

We've already noted how WND columnist Mychal Massie baselessly claimed that "credible accusations of voter fraud" exist in the election that Moore lost, but he's far from the only one desperately trying to de-legitimize the election because Democrat Doug Jones won.

Foreigner Trevor Loudon complained that "A coalition of Muslim and Marxist-led groups won the Dec. 12, 2017, Alabama U.S. Senate election for Doug Jones." He's also very unhappy that people whose politics he doesn't agree with are allowed to vote (not that he has a say in the matter, being a resident of New Zealand):

The real lesson is that the left is pouring big resources into registering hundreds of thousands of black and Latino voters in Southern states – especially North Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Arizona. They have already flipped Colorado and Virginia; if they can push over two or three more Southern dominoes, the Republicans will be in deep trouble.

If Alabama’s Muslim and Marxist communities had not rallied thousands of black, Latino and Muslim voters behind Doug Jones, President Trump would be sitting on a safer Senate majority today.

Alan Keyes, meanwhile, asserted that the Washington Post story on Moore's history of perving on teenage girls was "deceitfully contrived" (though he identifies no factual error in it) and lashed out (albeit floridly, as usual) at fellow right-winger Michael Savage for getting it right for once by pointing out that Alabama voters saw Moore as a hypocrite:

But Christ, to the contrary, repeatedly and harshly condemns as hypocrites the Scribes and Pharisees who rejected and condemned him despite the contrary evidence of his actions. As for the truthfulness of witnesses, Christ did not say his followers should trust in their words alone, however plausible they may appear. He directed us to look for their fruits. In the case of the witnesses against Roy Moore, the plainly intended fruit of their testimony was to discredit someone who has borne self-sacrificial witness to God’s written and Incarnate Word, in order to prefer to a position of authority in government someone who insists that the force of law should be abused to enforce acceptance of actions the Bible repeatedly makes clear that God hates.

[...]

So, unlike Mr. Savage, I cannot pretend that a deceit-corrupted election, bearing fruit that God abhors and condemns, must be taken as a true sign of anything at all about the quality of Christian faith in Alabama. But if the irrational conclusions Mr. Savage draws from that fallacious election are any indication, I am willing, as one Doctor to another who claims that title, to question whether, in his judgment about the late election, he is speaking as a Doctor, or as one who, in departing from the path of rational knowledge that title implies, acts without benefit of the learning that substantiates its worth.

Keyes concluded that "The people who engineered the deceitful election in Alabama induced an outcome that exactly corresponds to such mob rule." Apparently, Keyes thinks it's"mob rule" whenever a conservative loses an election.
