Mothers to Blame For Lack of Male Workers?

Mothers to Blame For Lack of Male Workers? December 6, 2018
Screencap from old cartoon on YouTube.

Reading back through the past few months of insanity at Colin Campbell’s porn name sounding men’s ministry has been eye opening. He is very extremely focused on people having as many white Christian babies as possible to vote in Republicans. He also hates with a passion any brown people attempting to immigrate to the U.S.A., even if he himself and his wife Nancy are immigrants themselves. Here he is claiming in his Meat For Men that working mothers deliberately are sabotaging the pool of available workers by not raising up Godly sons. Mothers to blame for lack of male workers.

And what industries are those, Colin? The coal mines that never came back? Picking produce for sub minimum wage? Those automated jobs in the auto industry? The labor pool and labor requirements have changed greatly. There are not a lot of jobs for the under-educated that people like Colin Campbell would turn out.

That wonderful economy that Colin is pushing as a result of Donald Trump as president? Yesterday stocks dropped over 800 points. The market is much too volatile to make any claims of victory. This is a direct result of Trump’s trade deal with China. Again, how is this winning?

I had to wade through nine pages, NINE PAGES of Colin’s demented calls for hyper quiverfull to defeat those brown people he hates. I feel like that poor coo-coo bird in the cartoon after reading through his hater-ade.

    Colin and the other “dick is more powerful than brain” preachers are in a world of problems in this modern world. It’s one thing to claim that godly muscle is all that’s needed To Be A Manly Provider in a factory economy, but to succeed in a software economy you need education, patience, and intelligence – three things they’ve spent their lives spitting on. The factories and mines are closing, while well-paying blue collar physical jobs – construction, plumbing, electrical work – require more than a strong back and a homeschool high school degree.

    But how is the poor wife supposed to squirt out and raise these dozens of kids if her husband is working at several jobs (which he’d need to), away from home, divorced, dead or just permanently out getting Meat for Men? Oh, I forgot, women are superhuman beings who can run a gigantic household on 7p a day (while still being so weak and delicate that we need our husbands’ leadership, obviously).
    [ETA: 7p is seven british pennies. I think it would be about ten or eleven cents.]

    Modern wars are won by technology and supply, not by religion-brainwashed soldiers.

    Lack of workers is the consequence of an expanding economy. An economy expands by recruiting more workers. There would be an even bigger lack of workers if all the women quit working. Apparently he thinks if you took all the women workers out of the workforce you would have more workers in it. I don’t think he understands how economies work.
    No doubt if there were a shortage of jobs rather than workers he would also advocate women leaving their jobs in order to give the available jobs to the unemployed men.

    This. Employ a room full of computer hackers and you could do serious damage to a country’s infrastructure, things like cutting off power, taking out water supplies, etc etc. Everything is run by computers these days, which I think is rather foolish.

  • Tawreos

    It sounds like he is calling for a new American Lebensborn program. Most of them are careful enough to try to hide it, but not this guy. Maybe if he spent more time on his writings and less time looking for man meat he wouldn’t make this mistake.

    For those of you not familiar with Lebensborn, from Wikipedia
    Lebensborn e.V. (literally: “Fount of Life”) was an SS-initiated, state-supported, registered association in Nazi Germany with the goal of raising the birth rate of “Aryan” children of persons classified as “racially pure and healthy” based on Nazi racial hygiene and health ideology.

    There have been discussions about this here over the months, one of Debi/Lori/Nancy (interchangeable to me) saying we should all use male doctors to give them jobs. But Zsuzanna Anderson said all male obs/gynae doctors are perverts and Mrs Rodrigues praised a doctor who respected her wish for him not to lift her skirt and do post partum checks on her. A brief visit to any hospital – in the UK anyway – will show that the majority of staff, from top consultants to cleaners, are female. If they all went home to service their menfolk instead, the country would fall apart. The genie is long long out of the bottle, women work and add immeasureably to the the good of society in every field. We’re over here in 2018, Colin should you care to join us.

    Everything is run by computers these days, which I think is rather foolish.

    There’s a difference between “weak point” and “foolish choice” IMO. Computers are a weak point in an infrastructure, but as the infrastructure has expanded and population grown, it’s nearly impossible to run everything at capacity using merely analog and human oversight. And because the people who run the computers know it, I doubt there is a computer system anywhere without a manual override, failsafe backup, or local alternatives.

    For instance: power moves along the North American power grid much faster than the human brain can follow. Although there are humans overseeing the system, the load balancing is done by computer.

    Can that computerized system fail catastrophically? Ask anyone living in MD, PA, OH, NJ, MA, NY, & Ontario in 2003. A power surge followed by a software bug wiped out power production to pretty much the entire Northeast of North America, from Maryland across to Ohio and up into Ontario. And…
    – Power to hospitals, schools, and businesses stopped. Individual backup generators kicked in.
    – Nuclear power plants stopped. Hydro-, petro-, and coal-power plants fired up and were patched in.
    – Cell towers went down. Copper landlines, which generate their own power, weren’t affected
    – Amtrak, Long Island Rail Road, & Metro North Rail Road stopped. Within 24 hours the latter two resumed basic service with diesel engines
    – Cable TV went down. Network TV stayed up.

    Problems? Yes. Catastropic world-ending problems when the computers went down? Nope.

    I completely agree about the “religion-brainwashed” part. However, modern wars are absolutely won and lost by members of every country’s military, who use the technology available to them.

    If you have any doubt about up-close involvement specifically of American military members in war, check any news outlet for stories of combat deaths and injuries, active-duty funerals, problems getting appointments at VA hospitals, PTSD among young veterans, and rates of suicide among veterans. You could also research the cost of raising specialized service animals for military amputees and quadriplegics and people with TBI, and look into charities that build homes for these men and women. The US has an all-volunteer force made up of a tiny percent of the population.

  • SAO

    The reason men like Campbell aren’t great leaders with millions of devoted followers isn’t because most people reject their perversion of Christian values, racism, misogyny, and general nastiness. Oh, no! It’s because we women are selfish.

  • Friend

    During WW II there was a slogan in the US, something like “the woman behind the typewriter behind the man behind the machine gun.” Female workers felt patriotic about working outside the home. After the war, they were all sent home to make room for veterans to find jobs. The definition of “patriotic” suddenly changed. A lot of women were very angry about the situation.

    But that was 1945. The US economy and world economy have changed somewhat since then…

  • Nea

    There’s also the math involved – if only the boy kids can be soldiers, then any girl kid is a bit of a waste, workpower-wise.

    I forget who did the meme of a nursing mother with a small child watching captioned “Smart women! Isn’t raising 6 scientists better than being one yourself?” or something like that. Of course, any smart woman capable of doing basic math was pointing out the number of children that putative smart woman would have to crank out in order to get the “required” six boys.

  • Glandu

    foolish, of course, but avoidable? I’m not sure.

  • Glandu

    Read again, I also spoke about supply. Each US soldier has 20 military people(plus an insane amount of civilians) there just to supply him/her with enough ammo to always get the tactical superiority.

    Of course, there still needs to be someone carrying the weapon, and that job is as trauma-inducing today as it was yesterday(just, it’s better identified today). But however brave those few people are, they do not exist on the battlefield without the huge multiplier effect of the logistics – and technology – behind them.

    That’s my point. I don’t want to lack respect to the few ones who deal with death on the field. I just want to say that courage and bravery are nice, but are no more the first order decider in military victories. By far.

  • Friend

    Well, I dunno, 7p sounds a lot like money produced by government to enslave the populace. Shouldn’t these good families engage in barter? Mother can teach creationism in exchange for a few fresh eggs, while father trades buggy whips for whirligigs.

  • Friend

    Thank you.

  • Saraquill

    Like there aren’t scientist moms out there. Not to mention the cost of raising six kids in this day and age makes it tough to afford advanced education for them all.

  • heleninedinburgh

    Well, that’s what unaccredited religious diploma mills are there for.

  • Saraquill

    Yes, mothers who work to support their families are somehow forsaking them. Much better to stay home and force your kids to run around your condemned house in the dead of winter.

  • Saraquill

    Aren’t those places anti-science?

  • heleninedinburgh

    It depends what you mean by science.

  • Friend

    Since the institutions aren’t real, I think they are anti-reality.

  • heleninedinburgh

    No, no, I meant 7p in gold. Gold is ok.

  • Allison the Great

    Suzanne, you weren’t kidding about all the posts about “bringing to birth more children”. This guy is obsessed.

    And I must say, these conservatives are extremely delusional when it comes to how many votes they think they’d get if it weren’t for all those “illegals voting”. There has been no evidence to back up the claims that millions of illegals are voting. People like Colin just want to tell themselves that the majority of Americans are conservatives who believe like he does, when clearly, that’s not the case.

  • Nea

    I think they prefer the term alt-rightscience.

    I notice, however, that folks who think they know the “real” science never go to homeschooled-only surgeons

    While pretending that it’s all a big fun game – or at least beating the kids if they mention realizing the bullshit this is.

    Last time I was in the ER, I did not request all male doctors with submissive wives homeschooling ten or more children. Maybe I’ll have that inscribed on a Medic Alert bracelet. /sarc

    He just hates that women have choices now. We don’t have to stay home raising a horde and voting how our husbands tell us to; we can do what we want.

  • persephone

    Before the Industrial Revolution, most jobs were run by families, whether they were businesses or farming. The women worked but were not directly paid, as it was family.

    Now that most jobs are outside the home (I wish I could telecommute), it’s just become more obvious that women work. And looking back at the Industrial Revolution, women and children regularly filled jobs, because they had to. A man with a family could not support them on the starvation wages paid by factory owners.

    The idea that men worked and women stayed home is an upper middle class ideal that has never been the standard. It’s part of being the 0.1%.

  • persephone

    Colin and Nancy only had six children. She should easily have popped out well into the double digits.

  • Karen the rock whisperer

    I grew up in a small family accounting business. Dad worked at the office doing his own accounts as well as supervising two other accountants and an admin. Then Dad worked at home after dinner. Mom worked at home after I was old enough to start school. I was recruited to do business tasks as I became capable of doing them: I started with prepping monthly billing statements for mailiing, progressed to copying and filing, and finally reconciling clients’ internal books, which we did monthly. (Obviously much of this work is automated now.) During the spring tax return preparation season, I took over whatever household chores I could manage, to free up my mother for office work. During her summer vacation, I subbed for the office admin. I was never paid directly for any of these tasks. My parents made it abundantly clear that everyone works, working is part of life, and there are no gender restrictions on work. We all work so that we and our loved ones can have the necessities of life and maybe some luxuries.

    “Now there are not enough men to meet the need in our booming economy.”

    Skipping merrily over the all-too-easy “what booming economy?” quip . . . my advice is to hire women.

    1. “WHERE ARE THE SOLDIERS?”

    2. “Parents, including mothers, show an overall preference for boys worldwide, which is why, now that that this preference is chugging away just as it always has or maybe even is increasing, I come to the rational conclusion that some woman somewhere is cheating fate by somehow depriving me of something to which I’m naturally entitled.”

    Well, yeah. It’s ALWAYS the woman’s fault. Duh. /s

    Evidently, nobody ever told this f*cking idiot that the male determines the sex of the offspring.

    I’m going to the best doctor. And I don’t care what is in xe’s underwear.

    Strange you should mention this. I brought this up (Lebensborn) in response to a blog post about “Ayla” the wanna-be Master Racist. And yes, this is what they want. Wanting ain’t getting!

    Yup, a big supermarket here got into trouble a couple of xmases ago by selling dressing up nurses outfits, for girls and doctors outfits for boys. I made my g/daughter a doctors outfit that year,and embroidered ‘Dr Rose’ on the front. Now my other DD, a ‘real’ doctor is buying a kids doctors case with instruments for her 2yo son, so I wickedly said he should have a nurses one instead!
    OT, I love it that what I used to call the ‘Dressing Up Box’ when I taught little ones, is now called, in my g/kids school, ‘The Role Play Area.’ Maybe some nutty fundies were shocked by the word ‘dress’ for their male children!!!!
