2016 Republican Candidates Court Raving Misogynist, Anti-Gay Bigot, Extremist


    Thanks to the awseome folks at Media Matters, who do the job that the corporate media refuses to do – researching, finding out the facts (e.g., what people actually said or did), and informing readers. For instance, check this out on raging misogynist and anti-gay bigot Erick Erickson.

    Numerous Republican presidential candidates are attending the 2015 RedState Gathering hosted by conservative pundit Erick Erickson. Erickson has said males should be “dominant” over females, claimed women should be “at home” while men bring “home the bacon,” labeled Michelle Obama a “marxist harpy wife” and Justice David Souter a “goat fucking child molester,” argued LGBT people are “on the road to hell,” and wondered when Americans would raid legislators’ houses and beat them to “a bloody pulp.”

    A few other choice Erickson moments from recent months include:

    *Fox’s Erickson Directs Liberals To Coat Hanger Sales Site After Texas Abortion Bill Passes

    *Erick Erickson Compares Pregnant Women To “Female Animals,” Calls On Companies To Stop Donating To Planned Parenthood

    *Fox’s Erickson Smears Transgender Service Members As “Mentally Ill” In Response To DOD’s New Policy

    *Fox’s Erick Erickson: “Abuse” And “Parental Issues” Make People Gay

    *Fox’s Erick Erickson Says Society’s Acceptance of Transgender People Blinds It To “Evil” Of Charleston Killings

    *Erick Erickson: All of Obama’s Policies Are Designed To “Humble The Arrogant Crackers”

    *Erick Erickson Follows Scott Walker In Questioning Obama’s Christianity

    *Fox’s Erick Erickson: The Only Line Between “Gay Rights Extremists” And “Islamic Extremists” Is “Death”

    *Fox’s Erickson: “There Is No Reason” For Anyone To Study Women Or Gender In College “Unless They Want To Be A Professional Victim”

    *Fox’s Erick Erickson: Obama Wants To Put “Pregnant Female Soldiers On The Front Lines”

    *Limbaugh Guest Host Erick Erickson: Minimum Wage Workers Are “Mostly People Who Failed At Life”

    *Fox’s Erick Erickson Understands Why “So Many” Believe Obama “Is A Closet Muslim Jihadist Sympathizer”

    *Fox’s Erickson Agrees That “The Homosexual Movement Is … Destroying America”

    Now, think about what it means about today’s “insurgent outlier” Republican Party that most of its 2016 presidential candidates want to actually COURT this extremist bigot, let alone condemn him as they should. Oh, by the way, the ONLY reason raging misogynist Erick Son of Erick isn’t allowing Donald Trump at his conference is because Trump has attacked a Fox “News’ host, not because Erickson suddenly cares that Trump is a misogynist, bully, etc. Finally, can you imagine if Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or Martin O’Malley courted someone who constantly says the types of things Erickson says? The media would be going ape. But if it’s Republicans doing it? Yawn.
