Cringe. Let's Send a 12-Year-Old Girl To Interview Roy Moore and If She Escapes Unscathed We Should Elect Him (But Hide Our Young Pages Just In Case)

Wow. These Alabama members of the "We Need More Pedophiles In Congress Club" are a piece of sketchy work. Even as the Sexual-Predator-In Chief increasingly comes under fire to resign and/or be held accountable for his crimes against women, his favorite Child-Molestor-In-the-Wings keeps revving up his denials of his multiple crimes against under-age girls. In his supporters' latest dazzlingly astute idea to prove Roy Moore is a good guy who belongs in the Senate - they've already issued talking points to help explain how his many accusers are all lying bitches - they decided to videotape a Trump-loving 12-year-old girl interviewing him. Their apparent logic, which evidently didn't consider potentially icky, unspeakably discomfiting visuals: If he doesn't molest her, then all good!

The video was created by America First Project, a group founded by former Breitbart staffers who describe themselves as "Attack Dogs for President Trump's America First Agenda." The group's Facebook page is packed with posts on how innocent Moore is and how his accusers will end up in prison for their "foolish ethical pageants" and if you want to learn more great facts then watch their documentary, "Moral Combat: Where Fake News Dies." The groups motto is, "Having the courage and asking those tough questions when no one else will," which alas is both grammatically incorrect and so vague - you mean questions like, "What is wrong with you people?" - it makes virtually no sense. 

Gearing up for Tuesday's election, they also made the video featuring Millie March, who was 11 during the campaign when she told CPAC that Trump was great because guns and the wall and "illegal aliens who want to come into this country and sell drugs like cocaine, marijuana and heroine (sic)." Millie thinks Moore's great too. She interviews his campaign manager - pro-life judges! - and then Moore - immigrants! military! the Constitution! - who creepily labors to look at her face, not her, you know. Just try watching without your stomach churning and your heart palpitating. Commenters mostly wondered about her parents' suitability for parenting, admitted to some queasiness, worried about her future therapist's bills, and declared themselves happy she was returned safely. For now.

But just in case, and because this is where we are now, Wisconsin Rep. Gwen Moore (D-no relation to the pedophile) has written of her "urgent concern" for the safety of Senate pages if Moore is elected. “Being away from home puts these young people in a very vulnerable position,” she wrote in last week's letter. “The nature of life on Capitol Hill necessitates long hours in close proximity to lawmakers and staff that can create power dynamics of which young people are not fully aware...We need to be vigilant stewards of these children going forward.” Of course, one way to do that would be not to elect a friggin' wingnut racist homophobic serial sexual predator of children to the United States Senate. Sigh. C'mon Alabama, the Liberal Redneck thinks/hopes you can do this. So do we. (Maybe.)

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
