Frothy British Tory and leisurely National Review writer John “Salad Days” Derbyshire, most famous for being a pervert and excoriating students at Virginia Tech for not properly defending themselves against that gunman, has a new book coming out, just like every other asshole. Within this anger-pamphlet is a section called, “The Case Against Female Suffrage.” Radio host and aged goblin carcass Alan Colmes recently asked Derbyshire to explain this section. Why does he hate nice ladies so much? Any other historic civil rights achievements he wants to dial back? etc.
Here, everyone, is The Case Against Female Suffrage:
“What is the case against female suffrage?” Colmes asked. “The conservative case against it is that women lean hard to the left … They want someone to nurture, they want someone to help raise their kids, and if men aren’t inclined to do it — and in the present days, they’re not much — then they’d like the state to do it for them.”
Lousy no-good women! MAYBE THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO VOTE.
DERBYSHIRE: Among the hopes that I do not realistically nurse is the hope that female suffrage will be repealed. But I’ll say this – if it were to be, I wouldn’t lose a minute’s sleep.
COLMES: We’d be a better country if women didn’t vote?
DERBYSHIRE: Probably. Don’t you think so?
COLMES: No, I do not think so whatsoever.
DERBYSHIRE: Come on Alan. Come clean here [laughing].
COLMES: We would be a better country? John Derbyshire making the statement, we would be a better country if women did not vote.
DERBYSHIRE: Yeah, probably. Well we got along like that for what, 130 years?
But he’s being serious, is the thing — listen to the audio! Poor Alan Colmes seems so scared.
Oh, and then he’s like, screw the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This was a common conservative position back then. You know, 40 to 50 years ago.
(K-Lo probably agrees with all of this, is the amazing thing.)
