Breitbart Says It's OK to Call CODEPINK Women "Slutty" Because They're "Sub-Human"

As noted earlier, Andrew Breitbart is proud of the fact that he calls the women of CODEPINK "slutty" just because they have political views that differ from his:

When he was called out on his sexism by Helen Caddes on Twitter, he responded by suggesting that it was OK because CODEPINK women are "sub-human:"

Could someone explain how this isn't the textbook definition of misogyny?


  1. So can we call Andrew a coward and a pimp? He is slime. The Code Pink women are trying to make the world a better place for women and children: what has Breutbart ever done that was positive? He should be ashamed, but like the rest of the GOP, he has no conscience.

  2. I don't really believe the argument, but I think I can make it:

    It isn't misogyny because Andrew Breitbart isn't classifying them as sub-human because of their gender but because of they political beliefs.

    Not that that reason is any more civil than misogyny. What would be the appropriate word for automatically hating people because of their political beliefs? (My inner smartass wants to say Republican, but I know that's not the answer.)
