Democrat Claire McCaskill currently serves as U.S. Senator representing Missouri, and faces an uphill battle getting voted back in during the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.
McCaskill will square off against one out of many potential Republicans vying for the seat in the right-leaning state. None of the Republican primary candidates, however, has made quite as much of a splash as Courtland Sykes, who recently declared in an anti-feminist manifesto that he expects his wife to prepare him “a home-cooked dinner at six every night.”
Outspoken Trump supporter Sykes is engaged to marry a right-wing political illustrator named Chanel Rion, who one hopes fully accepts what she is in for in taking a backwards thinker like Courtland as her husband. In September, Sykes posted his thoughts about the role of today’s woman. When pressed about women’s rights and the #metoo movement, the candidate decided to repost his write-up on his Facebook page. Penned Chanel’s future life partner regarding women’s rights, “Well – Chanel, my fiancee, has given me orders to favor them, so I’d better. But Chanel knows that my obedience comes with a small price that she loves to pay anyway: I want to come home to a home-cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes and one that I expect one day to have daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives — think Norman Rockwell here and Gloria Steinem be damned.” He continued, “I don’t buy into radical feminism’s crazed definition of modern womanhood and I never did. They don’t own that definition — and never did. They made it up to suit their own nasty, snake-filled heads. Modern women can BE anything they want, including traditional women — as millions are and millions are fast becoming. Millennial women voters despised Hillary and cost her the election (and they weren’t Russians). I wonder why they despise her? One reason is they look at her life’s personal wreckage and didn’t want to become like her.”
The retrograde Missouri resident further opined, “And I don’t buy the non-stop feminization campaign against manhood. Men and women are different and gender-bending word games by a goofy nest of drugstore academics aren’t going to change anything – except the fantasy life of those confused people in ivory towers.” He added, “I want daughters to have their own intelligence, their own dignity, their own workspace and their own degrees; I want them to build home-based enterprises and live in homes shared with good husbands and I don’t want them to grew up into career-obsessed banshees who forgo home life and children and the happiness of family to become nail-biting, manophonic, hell-bent feminist she devils who shriek from the tops of a thousand tall buildings they are think they could have leaped over in a single bound — had men not ‘suppressing them.’ It’s just nuts. It always was.” The wordy political aspirant finally finished, “I support women’s rights, but not the kind that has oppressed natural womanhood for five long decades – the kind of wrongheaded ‘women’s rights’ that allows mean-spirited radical feminists to use political correctness and their little broom label of ‘sexist’ to define womanhood and women’s rights for me, for my family, for you and your family or for my country and the world. But good news: They’re finished. Ask Hillary. Someone should have stood up and faced them off, years ago.” Do you think this caveman needs to get a clue that it’s 2018?
