We all know that the GOP is the party of old, white men, with the very rare exception here and there. It’s part of their identity. It often means that their views on gender equality and the policy they make that reflects those views are often very, very backward and old fashioned.
Enter Missouri Republican Senate candidate Courtland Sykes. In a Facebook post blasting women’s rights, Sykes tried his hardest to set himself apart even among the archaic views of his fellow Republicans:
“I want to come home to a home cooked dinner every night at six,” Sykes said, referring to demands he makes of his girlfriend. “One that she fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives.”
Sykes continues, saying that feminists push an agenda that they “made up to suit their own nasty snake-filled heads.”
Sykes continued again (because apparently he doesn’t have any good advisors to tell him to shut up) and said that he hoped his future daughters do not grow up to be “career obsessed banshees who forgo home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils who shriek from the top of a thousand tall buildings they are [SIC] think they could have leaped in a single bound — had men not been ‘suppressing them.’ It’s just nuts.”
Sykes ended his rant by insisting that he supports women’s rights “but not the kind that has suppressed natural womanhood for five long decades.”
Sykes finally concluded with this: “But good news – They’re finished. Ask Hillary.”
Is there a woman in Missouri that can run against this guy and put him in his place?
