Jesse Lee Peterson is a Moral Monster

Jesse Lee Peterson is a Moral Monster January 14, 2019

Jesse Lee Peterson is one of the most morally bankrupt people I have ever encountered. Not only is he a traitor to his race who pals around with white supremacists, he’s a vile misogynist. He told a caller on his show that a woman who is raped and has a child should spend her life with the rapist so the child has their “natural father.”

A caller said he was involved with a woman who had been raped and had a daughter as a result and he was wondering if it was okay for him to marry her. Peterson told her no, for that reason.

“Absolutely no,” Peterson declared. “Do not marry a woman … who already has children. It’s bad enough on kids when they don’t have both parents, it’s worse when a so-called step-parent steps in because the soul of that child—whether male or female—the soul yearns for a father, not a step-father or a step-mother. They want their natural father and natural mother, and especially their natural father. So, if this woman is a decent woman at all, she will sacrifice for her child, not for herself, but for her child and you’re going to be in the way.”…

“Let her know that you are not her father and that you apologize for getting involved with her mother,” Peterson recommended. “[Tell] her not to be angry and to love her father, her real father, and don’t believe anything that anyone has to say about him, so that she can love her father and she will grow up a peaceful young lady and she will have a good life.”

Isn’t it fascinating how these right-wingers are all about being tough on crime, but not for rape. One can only conclude that Peterson doesn’t really believe that rape is a crime if he doesn’t think the father should be in prison for it. The man is an absolute moral monster who hates women so much he thinks they should spend their lives with a man who rapes her.
