"Women Shouldn't be Supervisors"

Hinds County Supervisor District 5 Candidate Malcolm Johnson caught hell this week after it was discovered he said a woman shouldn't be a supervisor nearly a year ago. 







Mr. Johnson achieved the noteworthy feat of becoming the subject of a Marshall Ramsey cartoon.  Noteworthy because this is the   first time in a looooooooong time a Hinds County Supervisor anything has been the target of Mr. Ramsey's pen.


The word on the street a year ago was Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba's sister, Rukea, was going to run against District 1 Supervisor Robert Graham this year.   Mr. Johnson was discussing the rumor on his radio show, Tell It Like It Is

Wait, nearly a year ago? What do you mean? Mississippi Today reported:

This episode of the show first aired in February, before the March 1 deadline to qualify for November’s state elections. However, Lumumba said she never considered seeking that seat, although she said she has often been asked to run for political office.

Not so fast, my friend.  See, The Kingfish didn't rely on what someone else told him but instead, went digging through Facebook to find the original video.  Mr. Johnson and Brother Yarber discuss the upcoming judicial races, placing the radio show waaaaaaaaaaay before February.  Not so good, Stribbie, not so good.   



The online newspaper also reported:

Johnson did not respond to requests from Mississippi Today to comment. Patty Patterson, Johnson’s only female opponent, did.

However, Mr. Johnson said he had not been contacted by Mississippi Today and "was still waiting to hear from them."  

Kingfish note: The story is a perfect example of why radio talk show hosts rarely get elected.  What drives ratings and calls is usually a gold mine for an oppo researcher.  Mr. Johnson is going to catch some hell for a while.

Nearly every problem this nation suffers today can be traced back to the passage of the 19th ammendment. No unelected citizens got to vote on that. As soon as the hysterical feminazis got the vote they set about destroying this nation starting with prohibition.

They day those weak fools passed the 19th was the beginning of the end of this great republic.

Malcolm is a total moron. Anyone that knows him will tell you that. They just don't come any dumber than Malcolm.

No greater truth spoken! That would mean more and higher paying jobs for us men to support our women at home taking care of the kids, like it should be.

Nothing like coming home to momma cooking and taking care of the little ones!

Kingfish hit the nail on the head....it has been a long time since the Hinds BOS did anything news worthy or Marshall Ramsey worthy (and I mean that as a good thing). Once Anderson and Stokes were no longer on the board, the BOS has been one of the bright spots for the county (as compared to the judges, DA and other elected officials).

Now, you put that racist David Archie on there with WMPR mouthpiece Malcomb Johnson, and they'll have to reserve the front three rows of the board room for the press. I can't believe either of those districts are even in play.

Wrong. The biggest mistake was when people who don’t own land were allowed to vote.

I'm waiting for the DNC and MSM to call out this fool. It appears he gets a pass since he's a democrat.

4:46 is right. Get some skin in the game. If only land owners were allowed to vote there wouldn't be so much money wasted on those who are looking for a hand out.

I live in Hinds District 5 and would vote for pretty much anyone over the incumbent (McGowan), who can't get the garbage picked up and won't respond to inquiries about it.

I've watched Patty Patterson make an impact in Jackson and Dist 5 for years on her own. She has created a business from converting waste shipping pallets that employees several people. Its about time that we give her the credit for what she has done and the backing and platform to do more. SHE IS THE ONE!

6:43, thanks Malcolm. I bet you are enjoying riding on all of those freshly paved roads down there. I'll all in for McGowan, and that's before considering how horrible the other options are. Go Bobcat!

Has Malcolm Johnson ever had a job? He has been ALL OVER social media posting his ads, but what has he actually done? Maybe about as much as David L. Archie? We don't need a bunch of community activists in any elected office. We elected one as president and look what that got us.

I'm not sure why the Johnson fellow is running except maybe that Kenny Stokes wants to control the seat again. I have a farm in Utica and I have not seen this many roads paved in the rural parts of Hinds county in the last 50 years. No way we need to go back to the Stokes days.

7:35, I think that settles it, go Bobcat!

Online newspaper? What the hell is that KF? The droning bleat coming out of "Mississippi Today" sure as hell ain't the equivalent of no newspaper, not even a weekly. Even Ramsey just whines continually now.

Bob Foster and Bill Waller approve this message.

Is this the same Tony Davis that's running in district 5 that, former sheriff Tyrone Lewis sued..

@7:35 Nice post Bobcat! You can try say anything to cover up the good job she has done and will do when elected. We NEED a woman's voice on Hinds Co BOS!

Women need to supervise other women. Then they can hurl me too allegations amongst themselves. Protect male safe spaces.

Just put all 5 of them back in. It could be so much worse.

Bravo, bravo 8:38, for a truly excellent description of “Mississippi Today”! “Droning bleat,” indeed. For those who just can’t get enough self-flagellating by reading the Free Press alone.

Back to the topic at hand, though: I have always thought that many perfectly intelligent women, far from being squelched and stymied, have always been very, very clever, managing to avoid boring, strenuous, stressful “man’s work.” Jesus, who in their right mind wants to be a supervisor, anyway? Let some earnest, dogged old guy take on the job. Welcome to it!

There’s no pleasanter sinecure than the role of a traditional wife, if she marries carefully (no violent, lying, controlling jerks need apply, and he needs to make a lot of money). That way she can decide if she feels like working at all, and if so, she can choose something fun and part-time. Men just don’t have that option, unless they have inherited a fortune.

It’s not politically correct to say all this, of course, but even in this late day and age, it is worth thinking about. And I’m not a woman, by the way: I happen to be married to one who would tell you the same thing, almost verbatim. In fact, one of the sentences above is a direct quote from her!

She’s smarter than I am. I was duped by society’s expectations to slog it out in the unforgiving workplace for way too many years! Retirement beckons, and my sole goal is to live like my wife has!

I agree with this Malcolm guy, we don't need another Lumumba in public office..

@ 7:10 - This is 6:43. I'm not Malcolm and don't support him. My name is Jeff. And I'm also sick and tired of McGowan spending my tax dollars to put his name on signs saying he paved all the roads around here. There's one near my house on a road that WASN'T even paved, saying he paved it. I ain't votin' for McGowan, but I'd vote for you if you care to run.

@7:36 AM - well said, and I learned a new word - "sinecure."

Anonymous said...

8:49, you got three choices....the guy who has paved a ton of roads but you don't like his signs, and two community activists who don't know a thing about anything. Good luck.

Ask Pelahatcie how they like those women elected officials.

Yup, you got it, all those advertisers are after only a handful of people ... at most.

Malcolm was REMOVED from WMPR quite a long while ago, so, let's get that straight. He is on WOAD, the Christian radio station. Get your facts straight please. WMPR doesn't have a mouthpiece. WMPR IS THE VOICE OF THE COMMUNITY, and anyone including some of you are welcome to have a show.

@2:34... if men like you hadn’t screwed up the country/economy maybe women wouldn’t have had to join the workforce and if you were better lovers women would be willing to spend more time in the bedroom..:

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
