One of the most vile and influential organizations you likely never heard of – the “Human Rights Campaign (HRC)” – actively campaigned against Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who dared to challenge the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court over the sovereignty of the states.
Moore’s argument is that the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling on same-sex marriages “only applies to the states specifically listed in that case.”
As reported at Al.com,
“It’s the second time Moore has been removed from the chief justice job for defiance of federal courts – the first time in 2003 for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state judicial building.”
Using longtime gay activist Paul Hard as the face of the AstroTurf movement, HRC pushed the hashtags #NoMoore and #HRCTwitterTakover to turn public opinion against Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.
