Erick Erickson Fox News: 6 Of the Contributor's Most Outrageous Comments

Erick Erickson is the most hated man in media this week. His comments on Fox about how men are expected to dominate women based on biology drew the justified wrath of Fox's own female hosts.

But this isn't his first time stirring trouble. Media Matters compiled this disturbing list of Erickson's disgusting and offensive tirades in the past, proving that once a troll, forever a troll. Here are six of the most disturbing comments from him:

1. Men dominate women, because science.

The comment that started this whole thing, including a smackdown by Fox's own women, came during an all-male panel freaking out about the earning power of mothers. Lou Dobbs and the other men were pretty much losing their minds about how women are ruining society this time around, and Erickson took the "science" approach:

"When you look at biology, look at the natural world, the roles of a male and a female in society, and other animals, the male typically is the dominant role. The female, it's not antithesis, or it's not competing, it's a complementary role. We as people in a smart society have lost the ability to have complementary relationships in nuclear families, and it's tearing us apart."

2. Women think they can have it "all" - LOL

What do you do when you say something patently false on national television? You double down on what you said, obviously! Erickson took to his radio show and explained how it is "FACT" that kids are disadvantaged by single moms. It's the women's fault for thinking they can attempt to be a good parent or choose to have a career. Oh and gay parents are disadvantaging their kids too, no offense:

"It is a fact that children in a two parent, heterosexual household tend to have a more stable upbringing and a better chance of success than those of single parents or gay parents. This is a fact. This is not to insult gay parents. This is not insult single parents. It's just a fact. And the, of the subset of children who are raised in a two-parent, nuclear, heterosexual household, children where the father is the one who is the leader of the family, or the breadwinner of the family, however you want to say it, tend to out-perform those where the mother is the primary provider of the family outside of the home. Those are the fact. All I have done is pointed them out."

3. Promoting misconceptions about rape > Obamacare.

Erickson defended Todd Akin's "legitimate rape" comments on his Twitter feed. He felt that Akin's horribly misguided assertion about women being able to "shut down" a rape by their own biological mechanisms is less problematic than voting Claire McCaskill into office. Obviously, the state of Missouri disagreed.

4. Female Democrat leaders are the cast of the Vagina Monologues.

Erickson likened First Lady Michelle Obama and other women leaders at the Democratic National Convention to the cast of Eve Ensler's Vagina Monologues. He thought he made a funny, but instead CNN was inundated with calls to fire him immediately.

5. Apparently liberal Supreme Court justices are animal sodomizers.

Remember when you were 8 or 9 and you just wanted to say something mean and insulting to your nemesis and you called them dirt or a booger?

This is the ultra-right-wing batshit version of that. 

6. The only way President Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Prize was through Affirmative Action.

While many on both sides of the aisle called President Obama's 2009 Nobel Peace Prize a little too eager, Erickson obviously knew the real reason. He about the only logical way President Obama beat his 7-1 odds of winning the the prize on his Red State blog:

"I did not realize the Nobel Peace Prize had an affirmative action quota for it, but that is the only thing I can think of for this news. There is no way Barack Obama earned it in the nominations period."
