Roy Moore has weathered the storm of fake news allegations hurled by the liberal media.
So the swamp tried to unleash one more smear to stop his gathering momentum.
But the plot just blew up in Chuck Schumer’s face.
ThinkProgress – a liberal think-tank dedicated to preventing a Christian conservative from entering the Senate – ran with a fake news story that claimed Roy Moore had co-authored a piece that claimed women were unfit for office.
Their “evidence” for this was the fact that Roy Moore’s name appeared on a textbook that was a collection of works by multiple individuals.
One of the individuals had taught a course claiming Christians have an obligation to reject female candidates running for office.
But Moore’s never name appeared on this lecture, nor did he contribute any work to it.
It was a complete fake news story picked up by many on the left, including Moore’s Democrat opponent, Doug Jones.
The Washingtonian reports:
“Social media has been ablaze since Wednesday with claims that Roy Moore, the Republican nominee in Alabama’s US Senate election, believes government roles are best left to men. The outrage stems from a report by ThinkProgress revealing that Moore was listed as a “featured speaker” in a 2011 study course hosted by Vision Forum, a Texas evangelical organization that has since shut down.
During the course, another featured speaker, William Einwechter, lectured that women are unfit for elected office, and if nominated, Christians have an obligation not to vote for them.
“She’s not a warrior. She’s not a judge. She’s a woman. Created by God. Glorious in her place and in her conduct and in her role,” Einwechter said in his lesson, titled “What the Bible Says About Female Magistrates.” Continued Einwechter’s lecture: “Nothing is said in scripture that supports the notion that she is qualified or called to be a civil magistrate…
… In a statement to Washingtonian, a Moore campaign spokeswoman said that Moore has never endorsed this view. She added that if elected, Moore would confirm President Trump‘s judicial nominees—even if they’re women.
“Judge Moore has never stated or believed that women are unqualified for public office,” the spokeswoman said. “Judge Moore believes that men and women are created equal and he would absolutely confirm qualified, constitutionally conservative judges—men or women.”
The swamp is desperate.
Their first smear campaign against Roy Moore failed.
Alabamians dismissed the accusations – which smelled of politics given the timing – and Moore surged back into the lead.
Now with the election less than two weeks away, Moore’s enemies are pulling out all the stops, and that includes fake news.
