The Newsmax op-ed explaining the advantages of “a bloodless coup to restore and defend the Constitution” has now been taken down from the website, but this is just one of many insane and dangerous statements made by members of the rightwing.
John Derbyshire and Ann Coulter believe that women should not have the right to vote. “If we took away women’s right to vote, we’d never have to worry about another Democrat president.”
Republican Representative Tom McClintock agrees with Phyllis Schlafly that “the feminist movement is the most dangerous, destructive force in our society today.”
The Senate has approved an amendment proposed by Republican Senator Orrin Hatch to restore $50 million in funding to continue “abstinence-only sex education.” This taxpayer-funded program has already caused untold numbers of teenage pregnancies and increased rates of sexually-transmitted diseases, both of which further exacerbate the problems of our dysfunctional and inadequate health care system.
