Glenn Grothman is running in the Republican primary this year against U.S. Rep. Tom Petri </a> , which promises to bring extremism in the GOP primaries to a whole new level.</p> <p>In our <a href="http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/wisconsin-gop-house-candidate-glenn-grothman-s-10-most-outrageous-moments"> round-up of Grothman&rsquo;s extremism </a> we mentioned a speech he gave to a 2010 Tea Party rally, in which he claimed that &ldquo;gals&rdquo; are unfairly getting promoted ahead of men when really &ldquo;in the long run, a lot of women like to stay at home and have their husbands be the primary breadwinner.&rdquo;</p> <p>He also blamed the downfall of America on single mothers on public benefits, even though he claims to have met many single moms while protesting outside abortion clinics: &ldquo;Now, I know a lot of gals who are having kids out of wedlock, and I love them. I&rsquo;ve been outside abortion clinics, and I&rsquo;ve encouraged them.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;Our country is not going to survive if we continue this war on men,&rdquo; he concludes.</p> <p>Although Grothman&rsquo;s speech has been reported on a number of Wisconsin blogs, we believe it deserves a wider audience. Here&rsquo;s a slightly shortened version of the legendary speech, <a href="http://bloggingblue.com/2011/02/our-country-will-not-survive/">via Blogging Blue</a>.</p> <p align="center"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.pfaw.org//www.youtube.com/embed/bHomcNRTFeM" width="560"></iframe></p> <p>Also in the speech, Grothman claimed that the government is forcing businesses to hire women and people of color and thereby attempting to &ldquo;divide Americans by race.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;In addition to the unfairness, the reason that will destroy the country is we are telling people they are not Americans,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;And particularly we are telling our new immigrants, when you come here, if you&rsquo;re from the Philippines, if you&rsquo;re from Costa Rica, if you&rsquo;re from Nigeria, if you&rsquo;re from Pakistan, you should walk around with a chip on your shoulder and ask your government, &lsquo;What are you going to give me, because I&rsquo;m from the Phillipines?&rsquo; and &lsquo;What are you going to give me because I&rsquo;m from Pakistan?&rsquo; and &lsquo;What are you going to give me because I&rsquo;m from Mexico?&rsquo;&rdquo;</p> <p align="center"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.pfaw.org//www.youtube.com/embed/ZDq3oRHmV3E" width="560"></iframe></p> Miranda Blue C4 Election 2014 Equal Pay glenn grothman Reproductive Health war on women Wisconsin 46367 Thu, 03 Apr 2014 16:03:28 -0400 Equal Pay
