An Alabama State Representative who became infamous for gruesome comments about killing children announced Tuesday that he will challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) in a primary election in 2020.
“I am now a candidate for United States Senate,” State Rep. John Rogers said. “I’ve already, I’ve got – I’m running for real. I’m not backing down. I’m a candidate. I’ve already – I asked them to give me $1,000,000 [in campaign pledges to be able to run] and already $500,000 have come in already. And so if I get $500,000 [more], I’ll be an official candidate. I’m telling you right now.”
Rogers and Jones had a spat last week over Rogers’ comments, apparently setting off the State Representative.
Jones – whose campaign employed dirty tricks to beat Judge Roy Moore in 2017 – will now face an even further uphill battle to hang onto his Senate seat in a deeply red state. Jones’ approval rating has tanked since he took office.
Rogers made national headlines after some outlandish comments during a debate on the Alabama House Floor last week.
Big League Politics reported:
A Democrat Senator Representative in Alabama made some eyebrow-raising comments during the state legislature’s ongoing debate over a potential abortion ban.
“Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later,” Rep. John Rogers said. “You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, and you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later.”
“Some parents can’t handle a child with problems,” he continued. “It could be retarded. It might have no arms and no legs.”
Rogers’ comment drew the ire of high-profile conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr.
“This is stomach curling and makes Ralph Northam look like a moderate on abortion,” he said on Twitter. “Every Democrat running for President needs to be asked where they stand on this. The extreme turn we’ve seen from Dems on abortion recently is truly sickening.”
The bill, which would criminalize abortions except in cases where the mother’s life is in danger, passed the Alabama House.
Rogers has since apologized for his use of the word “retarded,” but not for his support of slaughtering infants.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
