If you can stand it, click on the link below and listen to some ripe ‘ole crap.
Where to begin?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
This guy, Jesse Lee Peterson, a guy who frequently appears on FoxNews’ Hannity, says that America is failing because women are gaining power. Because women are now starting to run corporations (nevermind that the percentage of women CEO’s is still below 10%) and be in more general positions of power, America is on a steep decline. He believes that power must belong to the men. One of America’s greatest mistakes was allowing women to vote!!! No shit. He really says that.
Now, please don’t get me wrong. There will always be crazies. There will always be stray people who believe completely wacko things. But this isn’t a stray. Far far from it! Like I said above, this guy regularly appears on FoxNews! There is an actual, mainstream TV station that considers this bloke a credible source of advice in political and social matters, and they keep bringing him back to share his crap masquerading as serious thought. I think FoxNews is a joke anyway, but this really takes the cake.
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHY FOXNEWS KEEPS HAVING THIS SHITHEAD ON ITS SCREEN AND AIRWAVES???????????????
It is because there are tons of people out there in America who genuinely believe what he is saying!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just can’t believe it. That is the only reason why people like this get traction. That is the only reason why people like that can appear as regular commentators on TV stations. Other people believe what he is saying. THEY LIKE HIS IDEAS. THEY AGREE WITH HIS IDEAS. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO THINK THAT WOMEN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE – EVEN OTHER WOMEN THINK THIS!
I don’t mean to yell…well, yes I do. Because it is utterly, absolutely, fantastically unbelievable. It is so regressive and pitiful that I am embarrassed to be called an American. Everyone should be embarrassed. We need to hold ourselves to higher standards. Better yet, we need to start holding other people up to higher standards – standards that are absolutely uncontestable. YES, women should vote (god, how is that even an issue at all!!!). YES, gay marriage should be allowed. YES, pro-choice is the only respectable position to respect women and their choices concerning their own pregnancies. If you contest one of these positions, you are backwards. You are regressive. It’s time you start living in the present and stop trying to bring back the 1950’s. It’s time you start becoming a member of the human race who advances civilization instead of destroying it.
Jesse Lee Peterson is a symptom of the bigger problem. Our country is dying.
