Welcome to Asshat of the Week, where I find an asshat and put their asshattery on display for all the world to see. Because asshats literally have no idea that they are asshats; they lack that sort of self awareness. This week’s asshat is Jesse Lee Peterson.
You know, I honestly thought that Jesse Lee couldn’t get much stupider than he is now. I was wrong. Dear Primus, I was wrong. From Joe. My. God.: Brett Kavanaugh Isn’t A Real Man, His Children Are Girls And Real Men Make Boys First. You read that correctly. But it gets dumber. Seriously (emphasis mine):
“During his speech, it was all about his mama. He always love his mama. It was all about the impact that his mother had on his life while he was growing up, how she influenced him, even though he was raised by his father too. He gave this big old long speech about his mother and then, right at the end, he said, ‘Oh yeah, I love my daddy too.’ So that concerns me. He is a mama’s boy. The other thing is he has no boys, he has only girls. Real men make boys first and I notice that most men are not real men anymore and they are making girls.”
I’m guessing that dear old Jesse wasn’t exactly blessed with what one might call “an overabundance of education”. Because if he was, he’d know a hair bit more about genetics. Just enough to know that the garbage coming out of his mouth isn’t just wrong, but utterly ridiculous.
Look, there are a ton of things that are problematic about Kavanaugh. There are a lot of things he should be criticized for, but this is not one of them. This isn’t an issue. It’s not even a non-issue. It’s a stream of audible diarrhea coming out of the mouth of an extremely ignorant, but self-important individual. You know, typical asshat. In Jesse’s case, the only cure is a return trip to elementary school under the condition that he can’t leave until he passes basic science.
Trust me, we’d never hear from or see him ever again. The world would be a better place.
