GOP Senate candidate for Missouri Courtland Sykes rejects women’s rights, claims women should be “traditional homemakers.”
Sykes, a fervent Trump supporter who bills himself as “MAGA’s Boldest All-Republican Warrior,” is running for the GOP nomination to challenge Democrat Claire McCaskill for the U.S. Senate in Missouri.
Sykes articulated his position on women’s rights in a statement posted to Facebook earlier this week:
In the statement, Sykes said:
I want to come home to a home cooked dinner every night at six. One that she (his fiance) fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives.
The GOP senate candidate said he didn’t want daughters to grow up as:
career obsessed banshees who forgo home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils…
In his statement the Republican candidate also complained about “the non-stop feminization campaign against manhood” and “gender-bending word games by a goofy nest of drugstore academics.”
The candidate said he supports women’s rights, while showing that he has no respect for women, and a bizarre, misogynistic, and outdated notion of “natural womanhood,” declaring:
I support women’s rights, but not the kind that has suppressed natural womanhood for five long decades.
In addition to his “traditional family values,” Sykes also has a strong disdain for female politicians who happen to be Democrats.
In yet another recent and controversial Facebook post captioned “Democrats dressing for the jobs they want,” Sykes juxtaposes images of three prominent Democratic women with three cartoon villains:
- Hillary Clinton , 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, and Maleficent (villain in “Sleeping Beauty”)
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, and Maleficent (same as above, but in the form of a dragon)
- Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Missouri, and Ursula (villain in “The Little Mermaid”).
Bottom line: Sykes puts the “Taliban” in American Taliban, and the GOP war on women marches on.
