Q: When was America last great? Roy Moore: Back when we had slavery

Print Post  
When asked earlier this year when America was last great, Moore acknowledged, according to the Los Angeles Times, that the country had a history of racial tensions. Then he answered the question: “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.”

The quote comes from a Los Angeles Times report published in September, but it was recently resurfaced by a viral tweet from former Obama administration official Eric Columbus.

There are so many problems with this remark that it’s hard to know where to start.

For one, which families, exactly, were “united” and “strong,” as Moore claims? Black families were regularly torn apart — and tortured — by slave masters at the time. Slaves often couldn’t even marry, because their marriages were legally considered void.

Nothing here. He said no such thing. He was speaking of family being together. He did not advocate slavery or say it was okay.

Fake news.

Fake news.


you are right, he didn't advocate it or say it was good he simply brushed it aside as if was meaningless & if you can't understand the problem with that well that's on you.

I think America reached its height of greatness in the 1940s, when we bombed Hiroshima.

“I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery — they cared for one another."

Doesn't look like he brushed anything aside. He wasn't talking about slavery per se. He was talking about families staying united.

Nice try though.
