Vox Day and Jesse Lee Patterson have company. A new voice has come out in favor of denying women the right to vote because they’re just too emotional and mean — and it’s a woman. Janis Lane, president of the Central Mississippi Tea Party, said so in an interview with the Jackson Free Press:
But do you think there are too many male politicians telling women what to do with their bodies?…
Lane: I’m really going to set you back here. Probably the biggest turn we ever made was when the women got the right to vote.
What do you mean?
Lane: Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how than can skewer a person. I do not see that in men. The whole time I worked, I’d much rather have a male boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them.
Because women have the right to vote, I am active, because I want to make sure there is some sanity for women in the political world. It is up to the Christian rednecks and patriots to stand up for our country.
And Susan B. Anthony wept.
