Why does pal of Hannity not think women should have the vote?
Far right-wing political commentator, Jesse Lee Peterson, spoke on the rights of women. Sort of. He was a board member of the California branch of the Christian Coalition, Pat Robertson's group, by the way. Well, this is what he said about women and voting:
"Women cannot handle power. It's not in them to handle power in the right way. [...] I think that one of the greatest mistakes America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote. We should've never turned this over to women. [...] It was a big mistake. [...] And these women are voting in the wrong people. They're voting in people who are evil who agrees [sic] 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. They were not afraid to deal with it. And they understood that, you let them take over, this is what would happen."
Any different than hearing a Saudi cleric talk about how women should not be able to drive a car? Not really.
He had also thanked "God and white people" for slavery, which is strange, because he is African American. He also said that being on slave ships was "akin to being on a crowded airplane." Well, maybe it isn't a surprise, Christian right-wing nationalist types, such as Sean Hannity, love hearing from these types of black commentators.
One who will parrot whatever people like Hannity say, if not go even further to the right. Maybe Peterson can become an apologist for the KKK, in his next job.
Peterson blessing the god of the bible for slavery is no surprise, the bible itself blesses and justifies slavery. Another reason to ignore it when it is used to oppose gay rights.
