Roy Moore thinks America was great before the ’60s — the 1860s. 

Yes, before the Senate candidate was famous for allegations of sexual assault, he was renown for his blatant racism and homophobia. A quote from a September story in the Los Angeles Times surfaced and went viral on Thursday, and it’s a doozy

“In response to a question from one of the only African Americans in the audience — who asked when Moore thought America was last ‘great’ — Moore acknowledged the nation’s history of racial divisions, but said: ‘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.'”

Yes, that’s Roy Moore (in the same speech he referred to Native Americans and Asian Americans as “reds and yellows”) expressing nostalgia for a time when slavery was legal in the United States. Decent human beings were outraged. 

In the polls, the Donald Trump-approved Roy Moore has a slight edge in the Senate race over Democrat Doug Jones. The people of Alabama hit the polls on Dec. 12. Hopefully, they don’t choose the candidate who yearns for a time when it was OK for white slaveowners to buy and sell people of a different race.
