Burg Simpson founding shareholder Michael S. Burg thinks it’s in the best interest of everyone for Democrats and Republicans to work together to fight the advance of the alt-right by uniting against the U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama.
“It’s time for both parties to stop being so divided,” Michael writes in his latest op-ed piece on Huffington Post. “Join forces to fight the agendas at work in Washington, and the attacks on the poor, on minorities, on women, and on the working class Americans in this country.”
While the accusations of sexual misconduct are just the latest controversy to surround Moore, a former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice, Moore has a long reputation for his extreme beliefs that are “strongly anti-homosexual, anti-Muslim, and alt-right views, as well as his strong beliefs that Christianity should go hand-in-hand with government and public policy.” That’s in addition to Moore’s history of disregard for the rule of law that twice led to his removal from the bench, Michael points out.
If Moore wins next month’s special election, Michael argues, the GOP faces a further ideological split as the Trump Republicans secure a stronger foothold in the Senate. But it’s the American people who will suffer, as big business continues its hostile takeover of Washington.
