They Did it in 2012 – History Does Repeat Itself
For some reason Republicans in Missouri, who are on the rise and would normally be highly favored to defeat the incumbent Senator Claire McCaskill want to say the most outrageous, the most stupid, the most offensive things about women and sex.
Here are just a few comments from two of the Republican Neanderthals who are seeking the nomination. First of all the headline.
GOP candidate blames human trafficking on sexual liberation, saying it leads to ‘slavery’ of women
And now for some of the ugly statements. First up, Josh Howley who wants to use government to control people's private lives.
Josh Hawley, the state’s attorney general and the Trump-endorsed candidate as the party tries to unseat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, made the remarks in December at the event “Rediscovering God in America,” hosted by a Christian political group, the Missouri Renewal Project.
“We’re living now with the terrible aftereffects of this so-called revolution,” said Hawley, according to audio of the event. “We have a human-trafficking crisis in our state and in this city and in our country because people are willing to purchase women, young women, and treat them like commodities. There is a market for it. Why is there? Because our culture has completely lost its way. The sexual revolution has led to exploitation of women on a scale that we would never have imagined.”
But wait, there's more
The news comes on the heels of statements made by one of his opponents for the Republican nomination, Courtland Sykes, who criticized feminists and career-focused women as “nail-biting manophobic hellbent feminist she-devils” and said he expected his fiancee to make dinner for him every night.
And getting back to Hawley
Hawley, a staunch abortion opponent, spoke about “the lordship of Christ” and said that the appropriate place for sex was “within marriage.”
These are the people who supported a candidate in 2012 who spoke about 'legitimate rape'.
With cretins like this even a Democratic party that is divided, disorganized and destined to lose, lose, lose might still win.
