On his radio show yesterday, far-right pastor Kevin Swanson warned that electing Hillary Clinton to be the country’s female president would represent “the final chapter” of the feminist movement’s war against America.
“On the one hand, the nation embraces a sexual decadence,” Swanson said. “On the other hand, the feminists —who themselves rather appreciate free love, sexual impurity and adultery, but they don’t appreciate fact that a woman was taken advantage of. Therefore, in order for [Clinton] to be vindicated, she has got to prove herself by winning the power struggle over the highest office in the land. This is what defines America today.”
Swanson said that “feminism’s greatest victory” will be to take the place of men. “If they can achieve the ultimate zenith of power, this will become the final chapter, in a sense, of the present war that feminists have waged over this nation,” he said.
Swanson said that Germany, the United Kingdom and the U.S., “the three most powerful nations in the West during World War II,” are “birth imploding thanks to the feminists and the pro-abortion crowd.”
“The three most powerful nations in the Western world that are birth imploding and developing an impressive debt-to-GDP ratio, and doing the best to destroy their entire socioeconomic systems, the three most powerful Western nations led by women, it’s interesting,” Swanson said.
On white nationalist radio show “The Political Cesspool” on Saturday, host James Edwards questioned if women should be allowed to vote and suggested that as a woman, Hillary Clinton should not be president because women can’t even be “the ruler of the house under God’s law.”
Edwards, who has credited Donald Trump with empowering the “pro-white” movement, broadcasted last month from the Republican National Convention, where he interviewed four members of Congress and a Trump campaign surrogate.
Discussing Chelsea Clinton’s Democratic National Convention speech, Edwards said, “You cannot be a very radical, and I mean extremist radical, feminist and at once be the kind of mother that God intended for a woman to be. So I’m sure that there is love between Hillary Clinton and her daughter, but I did not see the family and familial bonds out of the Clinton family that I saw from the Trump family. Does anyone really believe that Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton sleep in the same room? Does anyone really believe that Hillary Clinton even sleeps with men?”
“Should Hillary Clinton be president of the United States?” Edwards asked. “Under God’s law, a woman should not even have dominion over her household. There are natural roles and abilities that men and women have that are God-ordained and together, they are complementary of one another, and together, a man and a woman can raise a family.”
“They’re not supposed to be competitive or competitors of one another,” host Keith Alexander added.
“The husband is the ruler of the house under God’s law, and that’s the law that I abide by,” Edwards said. Alexander defended their rejection of the idea of a female president by pointing out that the White House is “the national house.”
“Would this country be better, frankly, if women didn’t even vote?” Edwards asked. “I mean, ask yourself that because we see women are so — even more than men, and even though men now — need this status, they need to be accepted, they need food, water, shelter, and status in order to survive, but women especially need that. You know, I think the model before suffrage was a husband and a wife come together as a unit and the man casts the vote for that family.”
People For the American Way President Michael Keegan issued the following statement in response to reports that Judge Richard Cebull, Chief U.S. District Court judge for Montana used his official court email account to send a sexist and racist “joke” email about President Obama:
“Americans expect our courts to be fair, impartial, and open to all. The trust we have in our courts relies on knowing that our judges will approach all litigants – from billion-dollar corporations to individual citizens – with fair and open minds.
“Judge Cebull, by using his official email account to promote racism, misogyny and disrespect for the office of President of the United States, has shown that he does not have the temperament necessary to fulfill his duties as judge. He should resign immediately.”

Last week, all Senate Republicans except Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski united to block Goodwin Liu, President Obama’s nominee to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, from getting an up or down confirmation vote.
Leslie Watson Malachi, Director of People For the American Way Foundation's African American Ministers Leadership Council, said, "Alveda King claims that, in fighting to deny women the freedom to make choices over our own bodies and to deny rights to gay and lesbian Americans, she carries on her uncle's legacy. We know better. African American women across the country are working to advance the values of freedom, equality, and justice, fighting for reproductive choice and the freedom of all people to marry.
