Fox News Contributor believes suffrage was a mistake.

Fox News contributor laments ‘mistake’ of letting women vote | The Raw Story

Quote:
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, a Fox News contributor, tea party activist and personal friend of Sean Hannity’s said in a sermon recently published to YouTube that America’s greatest mistake was allowing women the right to vote, adding that back in “the good old days, men knew that women are crazy and they knew how to deal with them.”
Quote:
In his March sermon, Peterson adds that Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown Law student who recently spoke to a House Democratic hearing on contraception coverage, was actually revealing “all the sex” college students are having. “It’s really all about maintaining the freedom to kill babies in the womb,” he says. “Women are now degraded. Women have no shame.”
Quote:
“I think that one of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote,” Peterson says. “We should’ve never turned this over to women. And these women are voting in the wrong people. They’re voting in people who are evil who agrees with them who’re gonna take us down this pathway of destruction.”

“And this probably was the reason they didn’t allow women to vote when men were men. Because men in the good old days understood the nature of the woman,” he adds. “They were not afraid to deal with it. And they understood that, you let them take over, this is what would happen.”

Very interesting read.

What do you think?

Not the first time I've heard that sentiment. That was pretty ugly though. It's always good to know where you stand with these people.

Ooooh, yeah, that's just the kind of talk that gets us silly women flocking to you men!

1. People other than college students use contraception, too. Married women use it, even!
2. "Killing babies in the womb"-um. No.
3. You're doing a fine enough job of degrading and shaming people yourself, buddy.

Such great company that channel is keeping, lemme tell ya .

We also did not have the Greek debt crisis before New Zealand was independent from the British Empire... David Cameron should obviously adapt recolonization of New Zealand as to his foreign policy.

Yeah, sorry everyone, everything's actually all our fault.

I don't think he is alone in his opinions

Since he's a friend of Sean Hannity, is Sean going to demand that Sean denounce the opinions of his Reverend Wright-like friend? Or is it ok to defame and insult women, but not America and white men?

I'm too stupid to vote so I'm going to stop

I don't know how this is going to come off as a white male, but there's something very grating about someone whose race was only relatively recently granted a right, denouncing that right for a separate group of people... I don't particularly care how it comes off actually

his opinions have less to do with his race or sex or sexual orientation,
to ascribe a belief or behavior to those 'non chosen attributes' is a common error


his beliefs have more to do with a 'life style choice' that each of us are free to make for ourselves

Hey, join the club, I don't exactly get that line of thinking, either.

well, given what's gone on in AZ and VA in regards to abortion rights, it does seem as if male GOP legislators think women are too stupid to understand what happens during an abortion.

so why on earth would we allow them to vote?

I can't see myself finding it less grating if it were a white man saying it.

Besides, you're talking about a guy who (per the article) also said, "One of the things that I would do is take all black people back to the South and put them on the plantation so they would understand the ethic of working."

I would just like to think, given his race's history, he would have a little more empathy. I hadn't read that quote though. Sheds a bit of light on his particular brand of wackjobdom

Excluding himself I presume.

Wow, he's got issues.

He takes the concept of "it was better in the old days" to the extreme. He doesn't ask the right questions. Is work ethic suffering in America? Yeah. But whose fault is that? There are a lot of parents that coddle their children and don't allow their kids to learn how the real world is. Spoiled brats that aren't willing to work for their money and want to get by on the least effort possible weren't born that way, they were made that way. Turning an entire race into slaves is not going to fix this.

The kids aren't spoiled by their parents, for the most part. They're spoiled by the rhetoric of those who advertise the existence of an "American Dream."
