He's into empowerment for women - but only certain kinds

That guy who insulted Tucker Carlson's daughter has a position worth noting:

On Sunday, Tucker Carlson posted to Twitter an account of his daughter’s experience at Virginia’s Farmington Country Club last month:
Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson,” Carlson wrote. “She answered, ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, “Are you Tucker’s whore?” He then called her a “f***ing c**t.”
My daughter returned to the table in tears. … My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. my son asked the man if he’d called his sister a “whore” and a “c**t.” The man admitted he had, and again [became] profane. … The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.”
For the entire account, click here; I’ve declined embedding it due to language.
As it turns out, the man — Manuel Granados — is on the Board of Directors for the Women’s Initiative, an organization which provides mental health services for women who can’t afford them.
As indicated on their site, they believe in a woman’s emotional and spiritual needs:
We believe every woman has an innate capacity for healing that, once uncovered and directed, results in better mental and physical health. We believe it is critical to address each woman’s unique emotional, physical and spiritual needs.
Where does the need to not be called a whore and the “C” word fit into that?
I like what one wag said on Twitter about him the other day: This is a guy who hasn't been hit in the mouth enough throughout his life.
