Last night was a good night for me, because of politics and stuff. Come for the gifs, stay for the mild takes!
Of all the groups Roy Moore and his campaign managed to talk shit about, us Jews were spared until almost the end of the campaign. But last week, in response to a question about a whackadoo conspiracy theory about George Soros paying to register felons to vote in Alabama so they could vote for Doug Jones, Moore said this:
“He is pushing an agenda and his agenda is sexual in nature, his agenda is liberal, and not what Americans need. It’s not our American culture. Soros comes from another world that I don’t identify with. No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going. And that’s not a good place.”
Some folks interpreted this as Roy Moore saying George Soros is going to hell because he’s Jewish. Who knows what he actually meant, but he let his wife speak this official response to the topic:
As a Jew who is not Roy Moore’s attorney, allow me to share with you, in gif form, my reaction to this statement.
I mean really, I can’t help but laugh at this. I ain’t even mad at you for this, Kayla Moore. You and your husband’s bible thumpy asses were on my shit list long before you said anything maybe-accidentally-anti-semitic.
So, of course, Roy Moore lost, which just warmed the cockles of my heart, and in my watching of various news things today, this video was brought to my attention.
