Tea Party leader Janis Lane, a former marketing manager who is now the Central Mississippi Tea Party president. Okay, now brace yourself.
“Our country might have been better off if it was still just men
voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They
are diabolical in how [they] can skewer a person. I do not
see that in men. The whole time I worked, I'd much rather have a male
boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them.”
Asked about what part of the Tea Party platform would appeal to
minorities, [conservative talk show host and former Nation of Islam member, Kim] Wade said, “Our position on charter schools is incoherent as
black people. We're sitting up here watching our kids be destroyed
because our leadership says we're supposed to dislike private schools
because they were born out of segregation.”
Lane, the female Tea Party leader, came out strongly against
reproductive rights as well. “I do not agree with the federal government
supporting killing a preborn human. A child is a child from the moment
of conception,” she said.
How can you possibly heal a terminally divided nation that has a sizeable population that thinks like these women?
