In a completely unnecessary video released on Wednesday night, alleged pedophile Roy Moore announced that he will not concede to Democrat Doug Jones, who won Alabama’s special election for US Senate on Tuesday evening.

“In this race, we have not received the final count to include military and provisional ballots,” Moore said. “This has been a very close race and we are awaiting certification by the secretary of state.”

“After the election of Donald Trump a little over a year ago, I saw a window of hope and an opportunity that we could return to our founding principles,” he continued. “Today we no longer recognize the universal truth: that God is the author of our life and liberty. Abortion, sodomy, and materialism have taken the place of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

By an unofficial tally, Jones earned 49.9 percent of the vote, clearing the 1 percent margin that would have demanded a recount. Moore received 48.3 percent of the vote. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill says it’s “highly unlikely” that Jones won’t be declared the certified winner of the election.

Still, Moore believes that God is on his side and will turn him into a winner. As he said on election night, “That’s what we’ve got to do, is wait on God and let this process play out.” But if not to the Senate, where will God take Roy Moore next? Hopefully not a high school or a mall.

“That’s what we’ve got to do, is wait on God and let this process play out.”

It HAS played out. You lost.

I don’t mean to generalize because I know not all religious people are this stupid, and he plays to his base, but what is with the inability to accept reality for what it is? Not everything is a battle. Not everything is like God still hasn’t done anything about it if it doesn’t go your way. Take a damn seat and shut up.
