ROFL...Trump says Doug Jones is soft on crime.

*Read his soft on crime record.....

In January 1998, Eric Rudolph bombed the New Woman All Women Health Care Center in Birmingham. Jones became responsible for coordinating the state and federal task force in the aftermath, and advocated for Rudolph to be tried first in Birmingham before being extradited and tried in Georgia for his crimes in that state, such as the Centennial Olympic Park bombing.

16th Street Baptist Church bombing case
Jones prosecuted Thomas Edwin Blanton Jr. and Bobby Frank Cherry, two members of the Ku Klux Klan, for their roles in the 1963 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. The case was reopened the year before Jones was appointed, but did not pick up traction until his appointment. A federal grand jury was called in 1998 which piqued Cherry's ex-wife, Willadean Cherry's, attention and led her to call the FBI to report her testimony. Willadean then introduced Jones to family and friends who reported their own experiences from the time of the bombing. A key piece of evidence was a tape from the time of the bombing in which Blanton stated that he had had to meet up with others to make the bomb. Jones was deputized in order to argue in state court and was able to indict Blanton and Cherry in 2000. Blanton was found guilty in 2001, and Cherry was found guilty in 2002. Blanton was up for parole in 2016, at which Jones spoke in opposition to his potential release. Blanton's parole was denied. Cherry died in prison in 2004.

Jones left office in 2001 and returned to private practice. In 2004, he was court-appointed General Special Master in an environmental clean-up case involving Monsanto in Anniston, Alabama. In 2007 Jones was honored with the 15th Anniversary Civil Rights Distinguished Service Award from the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. Also in 2007, Jones testified before the United States House Committee on the Judiciary about the importance of re-examining crimes of the Civil Rights Era. He created the Birmingham firm Jones & Hawley, PC with longtime friend Greg Hawley in 2013.He was named one of B-Metro Magazine's Fusion Award winners in 2015.In 2017 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Alabama chapter of the Young Democrats of America.

Jones supports stronger protection of civil rights. He has cited the Charlottesville rally and the Charleston church massacre as examples of racial issues to be addressed. Jones also supports the reversal of mandatory three-strikes laws for non-violent offenses to give judges flexibility in giving sentences. In an interview with The Birmingham News he stated that he opposes additional restrictions on abortion (such as proposals to ban abortion after the 20th week of gestation), saying current laws on the issue are sufficient.


Yeah, Trump, I could see how angry you are that he is soft on crime. You don't like him cause he went after your racist comrades

1. Idiot fuckhead Trump also keeps hammering that Jones is a "Liberal Democrat"

And NPR has been happily replaying that soundbyte over and over again, to drive the point home for Alabama voters. Got that? Jones is a Liberal Democrat! We don't need another Liberal Democrat in the Senate. He's a Liberal Democrat!

Never mind that Moore is a goddamn predatory pedophile. The party of family values is happy to hop into bed with a pedophile as long as they can keep their stranglehold on power.


Fuck Trump, fuck Moore, fuck every idiot racist fuckhead in power and fuck every idiot racist fuckhead who votes for them.

2. Trump is just spewing his usual bullshit. During that same press swarm he claimed

"most women are Trump voters." Uh huh. Apparently he thinks there's a line around the White House waiting for a pussy grab.
