Of course the majority of Republicans are defending Moore, up to and including their official mouthpieces on Fox like Hannity and Limbaugh. The main thing about Republicans is they stick together, right or wrong, party before literally anything and everything else. Republicans have the ultimate tribal mindset, and since many Americans are idiotic lemmings who get ga-ga over strongmen leaders who tell them what to do, who to like, what to buy, etc, it explains why so many are drawn to the Republican Party. Why they will defend a child molester, a “pussy grabber” sexual predator President, drool over pedophile-defending hate-spewers like Hannity, and march in lockstep with their Republican party “leaders” even when those same people screw over their own constituents by taking away their healthcare, raising their taxes, and lying to their faces. They just don’t care - they MUST stand by their dear Party, hell or high water. Even when the positions they defend are directly contradictory to their supposed spiritual beliefs or their own ideology (raising taxes is wrong, increasing the deficit is wrong, molesting children is immoral, etc.).
It’s really past time to admit that the Republican Party is a cult, and a destructive and un-American one at that; and it’s followers nothing more or less than wicked, self-serving, anti-American traitors that put their cult above the nation.
