A pro-Trump conservative went on CNN Tuesday to argue that all of the allegations being made against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore are the work of a grand conspiracy by both the Democrats and the Republican establishment to prevent genuine conservatives from taking power.
Eric Beach, the co-chair of the Great America Alliance PAC, argued that the real reason there has been such fierce opposition to Moore’s candidacy is that he represents a real threat to establishment politicians. Beach pointed out that the Republican establishment had dropped $30 million in the GOP primary to boost the candidacy of Luther Strange, but had been soundly defeated.
“It’s a war against conservatives, a war against the Trump agenda,” he said.
Panelist Symone Sanders, however, quickly shot down this argument by saying that objections to Moore went well beyond his support for “conservative” policies.
“These talking points are trash,” she said. “The problem with Roy Moore is, on top of the fact that he is an accused pedophile and sexual predator, he has had some big problematic things said about him in the past. He has done problematic things and was removed from the bench twice. He said that… he doesn’t believe Muslims, people like Keith Ellison should be able to serve.”
Sanders finished by hammering Beach for making such a shameless argument that attacks on Moore were attacks on all conservatives.
“He is beneath the office of the senate, no decorum for the senate,” she said. “Don’t spin this as a war on conservatism. This is a particular war against Roy Moore.”
