Jesse Lee Peterson, the monumentally stupid and misogynistic far-right internet talk show host, finally just admits that being educated is a mark of shame, especially for women. He told his viewers not to marry women with college degrees because they are “Satan’s daughters” who turn men into housewives.
It all started with him calling Rep. Sean Duffy a “beta male” for resigning from Congress because his soon-to-be-born child is going to face some serious health problems. He blamed it all on Duffy’s wife, who has emasculated him because she’s educated. That led to this:
On Wednesday, Peterson reacted to the criticism he has received for these remarks by declaring that educated women are “Satan’s daughter.”“Being educated is nothing to be proud about,” he said. “It builds the ego, especially with women. It builds their egos and they really believe that they can be better and are better than men. That’s why these men who are marrying these so-called educated women, they are turning their husbands into housewives. They make them stay home, they make them babysit, they make them cook, they make them clean, they make them be the woman.”
“A real woman would not be on an ego trip,” Peterson added. “She would be happy to be a wife and a mother and she would love the fact that her husband is the head of her because she loves the order of God. These educated women are not like that. I would never—unless she’s been born again—never marry an educated woman; you are marrying Satan’s daughter.”
So says a completely uneducated man who truly despises women and thinks they should all be chained to a stove while barefoot and pregnant. And his church no doubt includes many women parishioners, who for some reason agree with his astonishingly sexist views.
