Dr. Gina Loudon harkened back to the first days of the Tea Party in Alabama as she rallied supporters of Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate Judge Roy Moore and told the Washington, DC, swamp that Alabamans don’t take orders from them.
From a barn in Fairhope, Alabama, Loudon spoke of the serious decision that Alabamans have to make in the next week, a decision that she said she knows they don’t take for granted. “I’ve heard your serious thoughts on this matter,” said Loudon. “I know that you want to do right by God, by Alabama, and by your country because that’s what you do here in Alabama.”
Loudon recalled her many years in Alabama, a place she considers home.
She told the crowd that she knew they had thought hard, listened, assessed, evaluated, and “have rejected the lies of the swamp that have lied to you for all these years.” She declared that they all would stand and elect Roy Moore on December 12.
Loudon spoke of her days as a media surrogate for then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. She called on the crowd’s memory of that time, the polls, the accusations — “doesn’t this feel just a little bit like that?”
Dr. Loudon continued:
We were asked to care more about the interests of the elite than we were to care about our own families, our own loved ones, our own states, and our own countries, but we rejected them then. We reject them now, and we will keep rejecting them until they finally understand that we don’t answer to them — we never have and we never will, and December 12 will show them.
“Mitch [McConnell], we’re talkin’ to you,” she said.
