GOP congressional candidate said US suffered from women's suffrage and praised organization trying to repeal 19th Amendment

(CNN)A Michigan candidate for the US House backed by former President Donald Trump once railed against giving women the right to vote, arguing that America has "suffered" since women's suffrage.

John Gibbs, who defeated in the primary an incumbent Republican who had voted to impeach Trump, also made comments in the early 2000s praising an organization trying to repeal the 19th Amendment which also argued that women's suffrage had made the United States into a "totalitarian state."

As a student at Stanford University in the early 2000s, Gibbs founded a self-described "think tank" called the Society for the Critique of Feminism that argued women did not "posess (sic) the characteristics necessary to govern," and said men were smarter than women because they are more likely to "think logically about broad and abstract ideas in order to deduce a suitable conclusion, without relying upon emotional reasoning."

Hosted on Gibbs' personal page at Stanford in 2000 and 2001, the Society for the Critique of Feminism argued for a patriarchal society run by men, calling it "the best model for the continued success of a society."

10. Meet Hillary Scholten..MI 3rd...Ain't just about a Gibbs disgusting misogynist [email protected]#

Inquiring minds need to know..

Hillary is running for Congress because sheís got the experience and the vision to lead West Michigan forward, for all. She is a former DOJ attorney, a wife and a mother of two, who is laser-focused on advancing common-sense solutions for the most pressing problems facing us today.

clerked for the U.S Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and later worked for the Department of Justice (DOJ) under the Obama Administration. At the DOJ, our goal was to create strong, fair, and moral immigration policies. But when President Trump was elected, chaos took over. Carefully crafted policies focused on keeping Americans safe were overruled by late night tweets.

20. His arguments seem pretty emotionally based

crying about not being able to crack rude jokes, supposition that women shouldn't vote because they enlarge fed government - I guess he just forgets about the military-industrial complex - bellyaching about "constraints" put on male behaviour.

He gives no objective, logic-based arguments why women shouldn't vote.

And people want this big baby in office? Really?

21. CONservatives tend to be very stupid. Some examples:


While we are on the subject, we should repeal the 19th amendment. A female
voter is always going to vote for big government which will lead to tyranny.

I do not disagree with you that women should never have been given the
vote, given the result. I am a woman,
Christian, and extremely
conservative. I voted accordingly. But most women do not, so I would
gladly give up this right. However, there are few men left who have
not been brainwashed and feminized. I donít believe it would
help. Also, donít stop there! The founders didnít let anybody who did
not own land vote either. May I suggest SEVERAL things need to change
to make this correction. Heinlein even added that only citizens who
had served militarily could vote. Things to ponder. If we want to fix
the problem, letís look at EVERYTHING.

ďUNTRUE. Just stop it.Ē
Is it? Not so sure any more. Both JFK and Clinton (and to a certain
extent Obama) were elected on the women vote.

3 cubed is 27. It does not depend on how the expression is written. Note the tag line (emphasis added).

3 x 3 x 3 = 27
= (3 x 3) x 3
= 3 x (3 x 3)
= 3.0 x 3 x 3/1

26. They would love to go back to at least 1918 before the 19th Amendment was pushed through Congress.

They live in a perverse world of Americana according to 1950's Red Scare & Walt Disney. IMHO they could use a trip to the woodshed for a time out and some serious consulting with Mr. Hickory.

31. Yes indeed.

The calm logical patriarchal leadership of men has given us this wonderful world we live in today. Thanks to the men the climate and state of the earth is perfect. All of our problems have been solved. There have been no bloody murderous dictators killing millions. No world wars waged and fought by angry emotional women running rampant.

Nope, everything is perfect. No one could possibly do a better job than a man.

Trump backers tweet #repealthe19th after polls show he'd win if only men voted

As polls show that Donald Trump would overwhelmingly win if only men were allowed to vote, the GOP nominee's supporters have spawned a new Twitter hashtag: #repealthe19th.

Thatís a reference to the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

...and nowhere on Hillary's website does it say she is a Democrat. Reading the site, she surely APPEARS to be a Dem. If you are so proud of what you have done and your priorities, why not simply say you are a Democrat? Is she ashamed of it? Is she afraid she will lose some votes if she proclaims to be a Dem? Is Michigan that screwed up? I see the MI Dem gov is leading in the polls by 16 points, so why not jump on the bandwagon?
