Democrats Defend Blow Jobs, Republicans Defend Pedophiles

We're so far beyond "Both parties are the same" at this point that saying it marks you as deranged or a paid liar.

As far as I'm concerned, there simply cannot be enough articles written about the fact that Republicans and conservatives are defending Roy Moore. If it was simply "We don't believe it happened.", that would be bad but not outside of political norms. "Deny, deny, deny" is an age old tactic.

But that's not what's happening. This is what's happening:

"Divisive issue" meaning that while many Republicans are understandably repulsed by the very credible allegations against Moore, many other do not care. Worse, they're openly defending his actions.

Let that really sink in: Republicans and conservatives are condoning a man in his 30s sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. Why? Because they are so brainwashed into supporting Republicans at all costs, there is literally nothing they won't put up with.

And that's on top of the creepy "biblical" justifications offered up.

On the other hand, Democrats tend to throw their predators and perverts under the bus. Anthony Weiner got roasted, twice, and no one really defended him once the truth was, ahem, exposed. Harvey Weinstein is a pariah. Elliot Spitzer, while not a predator, is finished in politics.

Republicans are still squealing about rape accusations against Bill Clinton but while the left isn't particularly interested in getting to the bottom of that story, they're not openly saying rape is OK because the Bible says so, either. And that's the distinction that, I cannot stress this enough, needs to be made over and over again: Republicans are not just pretending Roy Moore's sexual assault of an underage girl didn't happen, some of them are saying they don't care if it did because he's a Republican and that makes it tolerable to them.

The Republican Party, in 2017, is arguing with itself over whether or not pedophilia disqualifies a candidate from being a part of their team.

The Democrats and the Republicans are not even in the same moral universe anymore. 20 years ago, the GOP howled in protest that Democrats were defending consensual oral sex between two adults. Today, they literally cannot agree on whether or not sexually assaulting a little girl is morally unacceptable.

Anyone that maintains that "both sides are the same" no longer deserves to have a voice in the national debate. One side trucks with white nationalists, Nazis, the KKK, literal treason, corruption on an unheard of scale, and now pedophilia. The other side doesn't hate Capitalism with the power of a thousand exploding suns. If that's your idea of a moral equivalency, I submit that you are a useful idiot or a willing participant in making the problem worse.

Either way, you should be put in a corner with a dunce hat and ignored.

There are 359 days left to the 2018 elections.
