Alabama Special Election Reflects ‘Political Reality in America’

Roy Moore has been under fire after multiple women came forward to allege that he made advances to them when they were teenagers. The Senate candidate regained the support of the Republican Party despite allegations that he tried to have sex with a young girl who was under the age of consent at the time.

On today’s show, Glenn answered these key questions about today’s special election for the Alabama Senate seat:

  • Why would Christians support someone with Roy Moore’s reputation?
  • Why don’t conservative voters trust the media?
  • What is the conservative voter’s perspective on this tough election?
  • How should people on the left reach out to voters on the right?
  • Why do conservative voters tend to vote on one issue (abortion)?

How do you think things will turn out tonight? Let us know in the comments section below.

GLENN: Roy Moore or Doug Jones? Alabama will finally decide today.

This morning, most polls have Roy Moore slightly ahead, but Fox News has Jones leading by 10 points. It’s very close.

Democrats have driven themselves insane for a year trying to figure out What Happened? How could a guy like Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton? Now the Left can’t understand why Doug Jones isn’t running away with this race after the creepy allegations against Roy Moore.

Why would conservatives vote for a creep? Are all conservatives creeps? Why would Christians support someone like Roy Moore? Does Christianity now condone Roy Moore-like behavior?

For many conservatives in Alabama, this is the same struggle they had in the presidential election last year when many held their nose and voted for Trump. Why would they do that?

Democrats, listen carefully, I’m going to save you a lot of time and effort because the answer is very simple – it boils down to abortion.

Being a single-issue voter isn’t sophisticated enough to many on the Left and Right. But defending life is such a fundamental principle for most conservatives that it will override most other factors, yes, even Roy Moore-type allegations. That is the political reality in America.

The deciding factor in this race wasn’t the revelation about Roy Moore’s dating habits 40 years ago – it was in September when MSNBC’s Chuck Todd asked Doug Jones his thoughts on an abortion ban 20 weeks into a pregnancy. Jones replied, “I’m not in favor of anything that is going to infringe on a woman’s right and her freedom to choose. Once that baby is born, I’m going to be there for that child. That’s where I become a right-to-lifer.”

For most conservatives in Alabama, and throughout the country, that’s way too late to be concerned about life. One Republican pollster in Alabama put it this way: “If Jones were pro-life, he’d be up 10 points.”

If Roy Moore wins today, it won’t be because Alabama voters like him – in fact, many are disgusted by him – but they hate abortion more.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know

Glenn has spent years teaching YOU — his audience — about the power of Martin Luther King, Jr. After nearly a year of witnessing chaos and turmoil both in the streets and now at our Capitol, we're all frustrated. We're angry. And we want to fight back. But Glenn says now, more than ever, we must refuse to engage with the darkness. We must be a light in the world, instead. MLK is one of the most powerful leaders America has ever seen, and he led some of the most profound changes too. He did it all nonviolently. As we approach Inauguration Day, and as the left HOPES you engage in chaos, never forget that like MLK — you wield MUCH more power than you know.

In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."
