“Practitioners of this politics perceive themselves as exemplars of masculinity, even as they fear manliness in general is being sapped from society by the forces of darkness. For example, Kissinger once told Gerson that radical Islam was trying to humiliate us, ‘and we need to humiliate them.’ Nixon referred to our Vietnamese enemies as ‘little cocksuckers.’ A few years before, in 1965, the U.S. had supported a massive bloodbath in Indonesia in which at least 500,000 people were slaughtered. The Indonesian military justified this by claiming that communist witches had castrated several army generals. This fear goes back as far as humans do: The 1486 expose of witchcraft ‘Malleus Maleficarum’ proved that witches can, via sorcery, ‘truly and actually remove men’s members.’ ‘Manhood: The Masculine Virtues America Needs,’ a new book by Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley, is a worthy heir to this tradition.” (05/14/23)
