Breitbart: Moore’s Pursuit Of Teen Girls Does Not Violate Social Norms


Roy Moore should get the benefit of the doubt, because he didn't violate social norms, said the Breitbart columnist.

When it comes to allegations of pursuing teenage girls while in his 30s, “Roy Moore gets the benefit of the doubt," Breitbart columnist John Nolte told "Breitbart News Daily" host Alex Marlow.

“It’s also that the media and the Democrats are piling on with allegations about Roy Moore wanting to date teenagers—it’s not illegal and at the time it wasn’t even a violation of social norms because unless you’re an urban elite provincial who doesn’t understand that there are different societies within America, 40 years ago it was not unheard of for a 30-year-old man to look for a much younger wife. And if he was trying to date a 16- or 17-year-old, I’m uncomfortable with that—I’ll admit that—but it’s not illegal. It’s not a violation of social norms,” Nolte said.

Nolte issued similar thoughts in an article published last week:

[T]o be lectured to by Democrats and media elites on this issue is beyond laughable. This legion of sick freaks feigning moral horror over a 30-year-old man legally dating a 16 year-old girl is the height of partisanship.
