In a video published on October 9, 2018 and titled “Make America White Again?”, white nationalists William Johnson, Paul Fromm, James Edwards, Kenn Gividen, and Kyle Rogers had a brief discussion on why women should never be leaders. Because really, who better to determine that than a bunch of droopy old racist guys?
The group started with a statement from Democratic Socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticizing the Electoral College as a “shadow of slavery’s power.” (She isn’t wrong, for what it’s worth.) Edwards, the host of The Political Cesspool, complained that “everything causes cancer, everything’s racist, everything is six degrees separated from slavery, or not even that much.”
“And this woman, I mean for God’s sake,” he continued, “I mean first of all women shouldn’t be able to run for office anyway. I mean I certainly wouldn’t want a woman president. And I mean that, I’m not tryin’ to be cute, I think — biblically speaking — if a woman doesn’t have the authority to be in control of a household, if they’re not the head of the household, why would they be the head of our national household, if you will?”
William Johnson, a corporate lawyer and leader of the white separatist American Freedom Party who endorsed Trump in 2016, remarked that Edwards had “said something that I think is on the cusp of being popular again,” which is that men and women should retreat to their so-called traditional gender roles.
