GOP Rep: Nasty Women Need to Be Put in Their Place

Today in Republican outreach, Representative Brian Babin (R-TX) appeared on the Alan Colmes radio show and shared his thoughts about Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and nasty women.

Babin was asked if Trump's outburst at the third and final presidential debate was appropriate and, amazingly, he went even further than Trump did.

"You know what, she's saying some nasty things," the Texas congressman answered. Colmes asked again if the comment was appropriate, to which Babin responded, "Well, I'm a genteel Southerner, Alan."

"So that means no?" Colmes asked.

"No, I think sometimes a lady needs to be told when she's being nasty," Babin replied. "I do."

"My assessment is that Mrs. Clinton has got so much baggage--" Babin added. "I think she's done some nasty things."

"I'm a genteel southerner."


I think sometimes a chauvinistic "genteel southerner" needs to be told when it's time to shut the fuck up. I do.

You can baselessly say Clinton has said "nasty" things if you want to, but neither he or I or any other man (or any "genteel southerner") is an authority on what "a lady" needs to say or do.

As a former southerner myself, I know all too well the condescending cadence of a "genteel southerner" and, frankly, it's enraging. It's as if every condescending, holier-than-thou down home yokel I've ever been forced to listen to is speaking through Babin's mouth.

Of course, Babin has little if anything to say about Trump's decades-long history of sexual harassment and assault, racism, and lying. For a "geneteel southerner" like Babin, a woman quoting a man word for word is more inappropriate than the words spoken by the man himself.

    Perhaps this Southern Fried Douchebag should tell Ronda Rousey – suffering from PMS – that she needs to be put in her place. Do tell her that, Congressdouche. We’ll have the popcorn in hand as she responds to you as only she can.

    “Well, I’m a genteel Southerner, Alan.”

    Well, you are a Southerner …

    “Well, I’m a genteel Southerner, Alan.”
    Bless his heart.

    Oh my. I believe I’m getting the ‘vapors’.
    “Crooked donald” has run one of the nastiest, grossest campaign in all of history. Not to mention that tape of him and Billy Bush. “Lock him up”.

  • Thank you Ashby. I was raised in the South and Babin’s bullshit is enraging. There aren’t enough fuck you’s on Bart’s board there to even begin to communicate my response. Here I was thinking I’d left all that crap behind in Memphis but it seems to follow me wherever I go. Bless their tiny little shrunken hearts.

    “Needs to be told…” my ass. Donald Trump knowingly stepped into this arena and he lashed out at Clinton when she played hardball. He’s a massive tax cheat and she called him on it. This smug douchebag genteel Southerner should give Trump some cold, hard advice:

    Man up or go home! You’re in the big leagues now. KID!!!

    • The genteel dildos don’t think that Trump should even deign to speak to the little lady. Which makes it all the more satisfying when she gets under his skin and he can’t help responding and making a complete ass of himself. On behalf of “Nasty Women” everywhere, I salute the next President Hillary Clinton on a job well done.

        Their respective legacies:

        Hillary Clinton ~ Madame President

        Donald Trump ~ Whiney Little Bitch

          Donald Trump ~ Whiney Little Bitch Who Will Soon Be Destitute And In Scary Ass Pounding Prison!

          FIFY! 😀

    Unfortunately, these “genteel” Southern ninnies have self-elected themselves as spokesmen for generations on what women need to say and how women need to behave. Even worse, is the number of Southern women I have met that buy into this nonsense and find this kind of patronizing BS acceptable because they can label it as “tradition” and “Southern culture”. I still cringe when a Southern woman introduces herself as “Mrs. Bubba Beauregard Lee” and seemingly forgets she has a name herself. These “genteel” dildos don’t need to be encouraged with a velvet glove – they need to be laid out by an upper cut to the jaw.

      “Genteel dildos” is a keeper. Well played.
