With Rep. Michele Bachmann’s announcement that she won’t seek reelection in 2014, we shouldn’t be gung-ho that one nut has left the national political stage. There are more Haterade drinking conservative wingnuts left. Take Fox News Erick Erickson, for example, with his recent assertion that liberals who reject that men should dominate women are anti-science and the female role in a relationship is ‘complimentary.’ The word that eluded him was ‘complementary,’ by why bother letting him in on that?
Erick Erickson, who runs RedState, says nature itself commanded that women be subservient to men. Um, sounds a lot like the sh*t emanating from the lips of Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, who was shellacked in their respective elections last November.
“I’m so used to liberals telling conservatives that they’re anti-science,” Erickson explained. “But liberals who defend this and say it is not a bad thing are very anti-science. When you look at biology, when you look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society and in other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it’s not antithesis, or it’s not competing, it’s a complimentary role.”
“We as people in a smart society have lost the ability to have complimentary relationships in nuclear families, and it is tearing us apart,” he continued, adding that “reality showed” it was harmful for women to be the primary source of income in a family. Source: Raw Story
Some Republican males want to keep women in the dark ages when they couldn’t vote and were second class citizens. This is proof that the party is tone-deaf and has no desire to change. They think blacks, women, Hispanics, Asians and the gay community should vote for their candidates and are welcome in the party, though they continue to insult and denigrate each group.
Sorry folks, this is just hard truth.Husbands and wives should play complimentary roles w/ dad as breadwinner. mediaite.com/tv/foxs-erick-…
