Roy Moore was supposed to easily win Alabama and replace Jeff Sessions' senate seat.
But then something happened. A huge number of Black voters showed up for Moore's opponent, Doug Jones.
Unable to cope with the loss, Moore's supporters are now trying to foment an idea of there being a "Black Conspiracy" behind Jones winning the election. Of course, it had nothing to do with the fact that their candidate is in the opinion of many, a reprehensible human being.
I am hearing rumors that black voters from MS were encouraged to cross over into AL and vote. Anyone else hearing this? Anything to it? That might explain the 30% turnout higher than population percentage. Just reporting the rumor.— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) December 13, 2017
Instead of shooting down the "rumors" head on, Twitter decided to mock them by hilariously playing along.
Can confirm that I and about 2500 others were bussed in from Wakanda— champagne and shea butter (@kawaiisca) December 14, 2017
I caught a ride over from Louisiana on the underground Soros monorail. I even got to vote twice, once with my birth name & again under my Islamic one. Waiting for my Soros checks now.— Gülen killed St. Nick (@orbis_quintus) December 14, 2017
I, a Black, was bussed from D.C. with a convoy of 739 buses holding more than 35,000 BLACKITTY BLACKS, on Monday night. We were personally escorted by Barack Obama, Megatron and Black Panther. We all voted 19 times each. Happy Kwanzaa!— Asia Chloe Brown (@AsiaChloeBrown) December 14, 2017
There's no evidence of any voter fraud occurring in Alabama with Jones' victory, it's been checked out pretty thoroughly.
I refused to take the yellow bus from IL due to, well I'm fabulous, so I rode in a multicolor WV Bus and voted 34 times (30 for Jones, 3 Michelle Obama, 1 for myself of course)— trebienbeauty (@trebienbeauty) December 14, 2017
But of course there are people who are going to believe what they want to believe, because Heaven forbid they're wrong about anything and a Democrat takes the Senate seat.
Right. I don't do buses either. But the commercial flight from LA was poppin. Oprah led praise and worship. We sang Lift Every Voice and Sing the whole way. 27 votes a piece.— James Evans Jr. (@dontcallmeJJ) December 14, 2017
You’re lucky, Pennsylvania here. While the chartered buses were nice, the movie selection was poor. Hoping the check arrives quicker than the one for the pink yarn. Those million hats don’t knit themselves.— bp (@allbaipage) December 14, 2017
I was disappointed with the in-flight meal on the red-eye home. That chicken was drier than a Young Republicans college party.— 🇨🇦 Canucklehead 🍁 (@IanMcClelland75) December 14, 2017
The red and white bus was a nice touch, though.
Doug Jones victory could spell bad news for the Trump administration's upcoming agenda. The tax plan that the President's been pushing clearly only helps the wealthiest of citizens and removes deductions for lower-income homeowners and will cut refund check sizes for citizens who heavily rely on it come every spring.
Yes, I can confirm these rumors. It was I, the reincarnated ancestor of Harriet Tubman, with rifle in hand, who brought a fleet of Mississippi Negroes across the border on the Underground Railroad, which was made of engines, boxcars, tracks and good, liberty-loving white people!— Stacey Patton (@DrStaceyPatton) December 14, 2017
It's understandable why staunch GOP supporters are scared, then, that Doug Jones has been elected, and why they support Roy Moore's decision to not concede to his opponent. Even if Trump is saying he should do so.
So of course they'd come up with wild conspiracy theories as to how their guy lost.
I invented a time machine, went back to 2016, moved to Alabama, voted for Jones, then used my time machine to vote for Jones 500 more times before realizing I could just go back to 1885 & push Trump's grandpa overboard before he made it to America.
