In a 2011 radio interview, Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore can be heard saying that the removal of all constitutional amendments — including ones that abolished slavery and granted women the right to vote — after the Tenth Amendment would “eliminate many problems” in America.
Moore, an accused child molester endorsed by President Donald Trump and funded by the RNC, made the comments while appearing on the conspiracy mongering show Aroostook Watchmen, according to CNN.
When Moore was asked by the radio hosts about his thoughts on eliminating all constitutional amendments outside of the Bill of Rights, the GOP candidate responded, “That would eliminate many problems. You know people don’t understand how some of these amendments have completely tried to wreck the form of government that our forefathers intended.”
This is not the first time that Moore has espoused such views, as he recently stated America was only “great” during the time that slavery was legal.
“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,” said Moore in September of this year, per the Los Angeles Times.
Additionally, CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski — who leads the network’s KFILE investigative team — reports Moore entertained the idea that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks may have been a government conspiracy or a “false flag” attack:
“In the May 2011 episode of Aroostook Watchmen, after one of the hosts asks Moore if he would be ‘interested in new hearings into what really happened on 9/11,’ Moore replies, ‘Well, I think they need to explore that, yes, but it’s something that’s already done and now we have to live with the consequences. But I know what you’re talking about. If there’s any new evidence, we always go back to the truth. If there’s anything that’s not been revealed, we need to know about it,’ he said.”
As for the Aroostook Watchmen, the Bangor Daily News — a news source that serves rural parts of Maine — has written that the show promotes many anti-government conspiracy theories. These include claims that the federal government itself is acting illegally and has been “hijacked” — which means Americans are not required to follow their laws. They also believe that many state laws are illegitimate and “repugnant to the Constitution.”
