Alabama Democratic Representative Terri Sewell appeared on ABC News This Week to discuss the senatorial special election between GOP candidate Roy Moore and Democratic candidate Doug Jones. Rep. Sewell warned voters that Roy Moore will take the state back to the days of segregation.
"We who have been proud Alabamians know that we have been trying to overcome our painful past, and this candidate, Roy Moore, will only take us backwards and harken us back to the days of segregation, Sewell said.

She also added that the people of Alabama deserve a senator whose character and integrity wont be in question adding theres no reason to doubt Moores sexual harassment accusers.

It is worth noting similar racial rhetoric regarding a GOP politician was also deployed by Vice President Joe Biden in 2012, when he told a crowd of largely African-American American voters that GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney wanted to "put them all back in chains."
The special election is slated for this Tuesday, December 12th.
Meaning Birmingham will have good schools and a low crime rate?
Democrats supported segregation then, and now. Theyre trying to paint others, including Moore, with their own sins.
And his Democrat Opponent enjoys killing Full Term Black Babies.
Roy Moore, will only take us backwards and harken us back to the days of segregation, Sewell said.
Does this idiot know that Roy Moore is NOT a Democrat??
The Democrat Party is, was and always will be the Party of Segregation and Slavery.
The politics of racial division. Dems are truly a one-trick donkey.
Do any of these nitwits know the definition of segregation? Black culture is segregating itself. Is BLM a unifying cause?
How many buildings and roads in Alabama are named after segregationist Democrats?
If you ain’t progressive you are a racist, homophobic, evangelistic cracker, anti-American, pedophile who is standing in the way of all that is the new communist left.
Funny, at no point can these people ever attack the message, only the person crapping on their tribalistic, divisive, con game.
Kinda like demanding that blacks have their own clubs, safe spaces, beauty pageants, awards, congressional caucus, etc?
that kind of segregation?
Same old playbook for the Dems.
When DIMS call you a racist, you know you’ve won.
Buildings will collapse, vast chasms will open up and swallow cities whole, fire will gout from the earth's ravaged breast, horror and misery will spread throughout the land on wings of eagles. Every sunrise will hear cries of agony as humanity descends into utter madness and time is no more.
Or something equally hyperbolic.
I doubt that's true, though Moore claiming that the last time the U.S. was great was during the slave days was certainly unfortunate. Especially in response to a question on race relations. From an African-American.
I’ll tell you who, for one, is hellbound to KEEP us mired in the slavery mentality; and that’s John Lewis. That old bigot ; the ONLY decent thing he ever did was march for civil rights on MLK, Jr’s coattails. To my knowledge, his entire career in DC has been useless other than to throw the racecard occasionally.
It was Joe Birdbrain that once told the blacks the Republicans want to put them back in chains.
Yes, he will!
Moore endangers black-only graduation ceremonies and no-whites-allowed safe spaces across the land, surely a return of segregation in the works too.
The idea that one Senator can change anything is so stupid.
I’m pretty sure she’s using “harken” incorrectly.
