Talk Back: Janis Lane

Central Mississippi Tea Party President Janis Lane said in "A Mississippi Tea Party Chat" (jfp.ms/teapartychat): "I'm really going to set you back here. Probably the biggest turn we ever made was when the women got the right to vote. Our country might have been better off if it was still just men voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful women. They are diabolical in how than can skewer a person. I do not see that in men. The whole time I worked, I'd much rather have a male boss than a female boss. Double-minded, you never can trust them."

YOU Respond:

Knolaust: "Please, in the name of all things holy, unholy, and in between, tell me this is satire. Please! Please!"

Blackwatch: "Ms. Lane took the cake. I didn't think that their retrograde, self-loathing thinking would be so blatamly on display, but it is. Sadly, it seems the governor is listed among this ilk. What a shame."

Lhaythri: "In the future, it would be great if you (Lane) could use your platform to share your politics without setting women's rights back a century. I am speechless."

Akwalker: "Ms. Lane, just with this one interview alone, you are single-handedly tearing down what you are trying to achieve. What an embarrassment."

BethIsadora: "This is absolutely revolting. And hypocritical, since I'm assuming Lane feels she has the right to vote, just not the 'mean, hateful women' whose opinions differ from hers? OY."

Billy_Bob_Neck: "Tell the truth and get mocked for it! God made Eve outta Adam and it was Eve who listened to the snake. Girls are STILL listening to snakes today!"

scottmcg: "I take it with her viewpoint on women that she would have no problem reverting back to the days of when she could be sold because women were only considered property. The most frightening thing in the world is ignorance in action and this woman shows she is a master at that skill. If she doesn't think women should be allowed to vote, then she should be stopped from entering a booth on Nov 6th."
