Meet Janis Lane: Tea Party Leader And Anti-Feminist

Janis Lane is the Tea Party leader in Mississippi and she appears to long for the days when women were happy chattel. Lane had made headlines in complaining that women are inherently poorly suited to not just serve as bosses but to vote.

Lane explained that “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.” A former marketing director who now leads the party in Central Mississippi, Lane further observed that “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.”

Once again, it is remarkable how some of our radicalized citizens share striking similarity with our enemies like the Taliban who would agree wholeheartedly with Lane on her view of women.

  1. Elaine, I forgot to add a tag. I found it more than a little strange that Steg’s support in complaining about lack of objectivity was to link to an outrageously biased blog.

    Thanks for stating what I probably should have. Cheers.

  2. and, Steg, your support for a lack objectivity is to link to a blog post that begins “I really sense that Obama supporters are losing it, completely. I sense fear in their stupidity.”

    Very objective. Thank you. Especially since many here have been extremely critical of Obama too.

  3. Steg, I fail to see your point.

    No one here misquoted Tagg as far as I’ve read. Romney was telling lies(contradicting earlier statements and stated platform) and got called for it. Tagg’s response was to share that he would react violently if given the chance.

    You’ve only added that Tagg can rationalize his violent impulse, rather than say “My dad is lying. He should get called on it.”

    I don’t know you, obviously, but I do know folks who tend to sympathize with violent aggression do so because they themselves share those tendencies. In other words, they see nothing wrong with violence or threats of violence due to ethical shortcomings, mental illness, violent history(received and inflicted) and inability to express emotion without using/threatening violence.

  4. Blouise:

    “Oh, you think Obama’s kids have been as poorly raised as Romney’s?”

    Well, I dont know how Romney’s children were raised. So I have nothing to compare to.

  5. The salient parts:

    What is it like for you to hear the President of the United States call your dad a liar?”

    “You want to jump out of your seat, and you wanna rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him, but you know you can’t do that, because, well, first because there’s a lot of Secret Service between you and him, but also because this is just the nature of the process.”

    Tagg then said:

    “They’re gonna try to do everything they can do to try to make my dad into someone he’s not. We signed up for it, we’ve gotta try to kind of sit there and take our punches, and then send them right back the other way….”

  6. Bron,


    “If you can retire at 58 why would you want to work until 70 to be able to get 100% of your social security which would be less anyway than your private plan.”

    I don’t qualify for Social Security. You still have no proof that a private plan would be better than Social Security.

    BTW, in order to retire early, I had to pay in thousands of dollars to the State Teachers Retirement during my last three years of teaching.

  7. “I am pretty sure when the Pres’s children heard that TR wanted to punch him in the nose they probably wanted to punch him.” (Bron)

    Oh, you think Obama’s kids have been as poorly raised as Romney’s?

    That’s another point about Tagg Romney … Obama’s kids are bound to hear that he, a 42 year old man, son of the man running against their father and close adviser to the campaign, wants to take a swing at their dad and the only thing that stopped him was fear of the Secret Service.

    When he was flappin’ his mouth on the radio buffing up his he-man image do you think he considered that his threat to their dad might worry Obama’s children? Do you think he gave a flyin’ f*ck?

    Like I said … we know what’s been baked in his cake. He’s a product of his environment.

  8. Bron

    I’m not sure where you find the flexibility to rationalize the really amateur mess up in a presidential election(and one of few candid Romney family moments) from a 42-year old marketing guy by claiming that someone else’s young children would go tit-for-tat.


  9. BF:

    good point but people can get emotional about their parents. I would probably want to smack someone who gave my dad crap.

    Is it really that big a deal? Especially in this day and age when everything is pretty loose.

    The guy loves his father. I am pretty sure when the Pres’s children heard that TR wanted to punch him in the nose they probably wanted to punch him.

  10. BF,

    Or he got his jobs through connections and is an example of the Peter Principle who let underlings do the work while he took the credit. You wouldn’t believe how much of that I’ve seen in the corporate world and the bigger the company the worse it seems to be. Or maybe you would believe it. You seem like a reality oriented person. :mrgreen: He strikes me as what someone I once worked with described as a “flip duck”. He’s floating and quacking but when you flip him over he’s a hollow piece of plastic.
