Roy Moore: ‘We don’t need transgender bathrooms’ ‘transgender bathroom’ and impeach judge blocking Trump

Alabama’s U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore blasted transgender bathrooms and transgender ideology being pushed into the military during a campaign event Saturday.

“We don’t need transgender bathrooms and we don’t need transgender military and we don’t need a weaker military,” said Moore. “We need to go back to what this country is about.”

Moore is running in the special election to replace the seat vacated by Attorney Jeff Sessions, defeating Luther Strange in the primary and set to face Democrat Doug Jones.

Moore is calling for the impeachment of the federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military.

“The decision of a federal judge in the District of Columbia enjoining President Trump’s executive order on transgenderism in the military is absolutely ridiculous and is a perfect example of the outlandish doctrine of judicial supremacy whereby judges exalt themselves over the Constitution they are sworn to uphold,” Moore, a former state Supreme Court chief justice, said in a statement on Monday.

U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled Monday that Trump’s directive violates the Fifth Amendment right to due process by reversing the June 2016 transgender policy and banning new transgender recruits from enlisting in the military.

Moore slammed Kollar-Kotelly, saying she “placed herself above the Constitution” and exhibited “judicial activism” and then argued that the House of Representatives should impeach her for violations of the Constitution that include “unlawful usurpation of power” and “lack of good behavior” before turning the case over to the Senate to have her officially removed.

“Only in 2016 did the Obama administration attempt to impose that delusion upon our fighting forces. To say that President Trump cannot prohibit transgenderism in the military is a clear example of judicial activism. Even the United States Supreme Court has never declared transgenderism to be a right under the Constitution,” he wrote.

Moore is well-known to pro-life and pro-family advocates, attacked by leftists for his principled defenses of faith and marriage.

The special election between Moore and Jones will be on December 12. December 12 is the Feast Day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a day with special significance to many pro-life activists.

Judge Moore has been a long time target from the left, removed after refusing to take down a Ten Commandments monument. He was re-elected in 2012 and then suspended in 2016 for refusing to legitimize same-sex “marriage.”

The transgender bathroom ramped up in 2013 when a Colorado teen boy was harassing girls without penalty due to his alleged gender identity. In late 2013 California moved forward a sweeping bathroom bill, but it was Target’s stance for gender-neutral bathrooms that brought the issue major media attention.
