As yet another attack on feminism as the “wussification” of America, Fox & Friends this morning presented Australian author Nick Adams who fear mongered that the trend is not only “very dangerous” to men but a threat to national security. I kid you not.
Fox & Friends hosts loved Adams’ message so much they didn’t need any proof he was right
Co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Clayton Morris fawned over Adams and took his every word as truth, without asking for any studies or evidence.
When Adams claimed that going “from wrestling with crocodiles to wrestling with lattes” is having an “adverse effect” on men, Hasselbeck laughed appreciatively. “Is this in direct relation to feminism on the rise?” she prompted asked.
Sure enough, Adams thought so. He said, “It is feminism, and basically what feminism has delivered is angry women and feminine men. …From the left, from the politically correct, we have all these attacks on men.”
A banner on the screen read, “LET GUYS BE GUYS.”
Morris said Adams had summed it up “nicely” in an interview when he said, “All aspects of male culture have been called into question, whether it’s gathering around on a Sunday afternoon to watch football with a few friends, whether it is going to the range and shooting some guns, whether it’s just being a male, has now been really made suspect.” On the screen, the rest of the quote played out: “That is a very dangerous thing. We see it coming from all levels of society. We see it coming from the government; we see it coming from the feminists.”
Hasselbeck and guest took the feminist bashing to a whole new level
OK, maybe you and I find this sort of neanderthalism regressive and offensive. But we’re kind of used to attacks on feminism as bad for society on Fox. But then Hasselbeck and Adams deliberately fear mongered that feminism is an actual threat to our safety.
HASSELBECK: Do you see this affecting national security? How a nation operates in terms of being a strong presence globally?
ADAMS: Absolutely, without a doubt. I think it has wide-ranging implications. Weeps and wussies deliver mediocrity. And men win. And what America’s always been about is winning. So I think it’s pivotal to the health of the country.
Later, Hasselbeck asked if Australia had the same problems. When Adams said they did, she gushed, “We’re working on it together!"
