Earlier this week, Republican Rep. Sean Duffy announced that he was resigning from Congress because his wife, Fox News commentator Rachel Campos-Duffy, is pregnant with the couple’s ninth child and the child is facing health issues that will require open-heart surgery after she is born.
Right-wing radio host Jesse Lee Peterson reacted to this news on his radio show yesterday by repeatedly mocking Duffy as a “beta male” while declaring that Campos-Duffy is “selfish” for having a job instead of staying at home and raising her family.
“Why does she have to work?” Peterson asked. “Why doesn’t she stay home, be a wife, a mother, and help raise the children? And now this guy has to step down because this baby apparently has some issues … He shouldn’t quit his job for that. I guarantee you she is making him do it.”
“This woman is a selfish, egotistical woman and this man is too beta male to make her do the right thing,” Peterson continued. “This woman is a selfish woman. She has nine kids and she’s trying to be like a man, ‘I want to be seen by the world as such a working woman.’ Women, God has given you the gift of being the assistant of the man, to watch over his children, to make sure things are well at home, to be there when the kids come home, to cook, clean, provide in that way. There is no greater job for a woman than that. And I don’t know why these men would marry these women if they don’t have that mindset. It’s like being married to another man. It’s selfishness, it’s not love.”
“She has control over him,” Peterson added. “He’s a beta male. So Sean Duffy, Representative Duffy, you are a beta male! It’s ridiculous, really ridiculous, and it’s sad for the children. Nine children? You need to be home, and the man, you need to be out providing and being the light for your family … Men, you need to come back to your proper state of being so God can give you the right kind of woman to marry. I wouldn’t recommend you marry these educated women with these degrees; they don’t make for good wives and mothers.”
