Dominic Raab, the U.Okay.’s deputy prime minister and justice secretary, completely botched the that means of “misogyny” in a BBC “Breakfast” interview on Wednesday.
“Misogyny is absolutely wrong, whether it’s a man against a woman or a woman against a man,” Raab stated. (Watch an extended clip of the interview beneath.)
Host Sally Nugent famous that the definition of misogyny was “hatred against, directed towards, women” and repeated his assertion.
“Is that what you meant to say?” she requested.
But Raab appeared oblivious.
The politician was initially requested for his opinion on PM Boris Johnson’s feedback that misogyny should not be a hate crime. Debate over girls’s security within the U.Okay. has intensified after a police officer final week was sentenced to life for the kidnapping, rape and killing of Sarah Everard.
Raab has beforehand referred to as feminists “obnoxious bigots” and stated males “from the cradle to the grave” are “getting a raw deal,” The Guardian noted.
Twitter gave him a lashing.
