Roy Moore: America Was Great When ‘We Had Slavery’
Republican U.S. Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore said in September that America was “great” when there was slavery.
During a rally in Florence, Alabama, Moore warned of “spiritual wickedness in high places” and “the awful calamity of abortion and sodomy and perverse behavior and murders and shootings and road rage” as “a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins,” noted the Los Angeles Times.
Moore was asked at the rally by an African-American when he thought America was last “great,” in reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.
Moore admitted there were racial divisions in the U.S., and replied:
I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.
Moore is accused of sexual misconduct by six women when they were teens; Moore has denied the allegations.
