Few things are as mysterious as the experience and track record that J.D. Scholten has to justify him being a credible candidate for Congress.

In an email sent Saturday, Scholten’s team says that Congressman Steve King has a history of openly misogynistic comments. So, King has evolved from a racist, white supremacist to a racist, white supremacist misogynist.


What was King’s big screw-up, suggesting there are no rights men have that women don’t have? And, perhaps the boldest criticism of all:

“Valuing women primarily for their role as mothers, it’s clear that Steve King does not support women.”

What bigotry! I mean, who in their right mind would ever suggest that bringing a new life into this world is the most valuable thing a woman can do!

The horror!

But here’s the problem. Scholten is running in a Democrat Party that doesn’t value women at all. Not at all.

How can I say that?

Well, gender is fluid, don’t ya know? Someone could be a man today, but identify as a woman tomorrow and be a total equal to an authentic female. Remember, it is people in Scholten’s party who actually believe a man who believes he is a woman should be able to go into a female prison.

Heck, I haven’t checked lately, but I’m not sure exactly how many genders exist these days, according to Democrats.

So while King may have this extreme idea that giving birth and raising the next generation is the most valuable thing a woman can do, Scholten doesn’t even differentiate between men and women at all. And if a man tells Scholten he’s a woman, by golly Scholten is going to consider that dude a female.

How is that putting any value at all on actual women?

It isn’t.

Strange “attack” from Scholten.

This email was a total swing and a miss, unlike his stuff on the pitching mound.
