Three Alabama Newspapers Instruct Voters to ‘Reject Roy Moore’ With Front-Page Editorials


In their Sunday editions, three of Alabama’s larger newspapers — Mobile, AL’s Press-Register, The Birmingham News and The Huntsville Times — featured front-page editorials telling voters to “reject Roy Moore” in next month’s U.S. Senate special election. The three newspapers, all under the Alabama Media Group umbrella, featured the headline at the top of their front pages in block lettering “STAND FOR DECENCY, REJECT ROY MOORE.”   The 1,200-word editorial that accompanied those headlines urged Alabama voters to dismiss what those beyond the state’s borders have to say about the race. Alabamians have never cared about what the rest of country thinks of them. And we do not expect all the handwringing from national pundits, conservative or liberal, to make much of a difference. This election isn’t about what a late-night comedian may think of Alabama or whether Sean Hannity can sell advertisements; it’s not about Saturday Night Live or Mitch McConnell. It’s not about Breitbart or National Democrats. It is about the moral values of the people of Alabama. Do not make your voting decision based on who it will affect on a national stage. Vote based on who it will affect in your hometown. https://t.co/Nr8n3P876T editorial board endorsement: It’s

Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-NY) saying former President Bill Clinton should have resigned during the Monica Lewinsky scandal was an “earthquake in the Democratic Party.” Bannon said, “Kirsten Gillibrand’s comment about Bill Clinton I think is an earthquake in the Democratic Party because the Wall Street-Clinton junta that controls the Democratic Party has really been bulletproof.” He continued, “And I think you saw the first opening shot of the 2020 primary with Gillibrand, who clearly has presidential aspirations. She put a shot right across the bow of the Clintons.” (h/t The Hill) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

ADL’s Jonathan Greenblatt Talks Hate Crimes on MSNBC with Al Sharpton, Ignores Sharpton’s Past

Jonathan Greenblatt (Carolyn Kaster / Associated Press)
Anti-Defamation League (ADL) chief executive officer Jonathan Greenblatt appeared Sunday morning on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation with host Al Sharpton to discuss hate crimes in America — and failed to mention Sharpton’s own history of allegedly inciting hate crimes against Jews. Sharpton is widely blamed for a riot in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, in 1991 in which a mob killed an innocent religious student, Yankel Rosenbaum. In addition, Sharpton has been blamed for inciting the 1995 firebombing of Freddy’s Fashion Mart, a Jewish-owned store in Harlem, New York. As the Media Research Center noted in 2015, on the 20th anniversary of the attack: Sharpton was one of the main causes of the hatred which led to fire bombing of Freddy’s Fashion Mart. He didn’t toss the firebomb, but the anti-Semitic and racial bias which came out of his mouth and out of the mouths of other while in his presence, produced the massacre as assuredly as if the fire was set with his hands. On December 8, 1995,  Al Sharpton incited the violent fire-bombing of the Jewish-owned Freddy’s Fashion Mart in Harlem, causing the the deaths of Angelina Marrero, Cynthia Martinez, Luz Ramos, Mayra Rentas, Olga Garcia, Garnette Ramautar, and Kareem Brunner – the seven

Bannon: The ‘Grassroots Deplorables’ Are Going To Run McConnell Out of Office


Sunday on the “Cats Roundtable” radio show on AM 970 in New York City, former White House chief strategist and Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon said Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his “cronies” would be run out of office by what he called “the grassroots deplorables.” Bannon said, “Now that he’s afraid, now that he sees that the grassroots movement – whether it’s in Alabama or Arizona or Tennessee or Mississippi – is going to replace his cronies like Jeff Flake and Bob Corker, now he’s scared, and now he’s trying to move more federal judges through the system and really trying to cleave to President Trump’s plan.” He continued, “Until he shuts down these committees that are investigation President Trump, and until he has people like Bob Corker stripped of his chairmanship because Corker is sitting there as the head of the Foreign Relations Committee, and with the President in war in Afghanistan and other places throughout world and Corker is sitting there trashing the Commander-in-chief saying he should be in an adult home. Saying he is is irresponsible. He’s a guy holding hearing as to whether President Trump can use nuclear weapons or not as commander-in-chief. These are outrageous things.” He
