Missouri GOP Sen. Josh Hawley is reportedly writing a book about masculinity which is due to hit store shelves in May, The Kansas City Star reports.
The book, titled, “Manhood: The Masculine Virtues America Needs,” calls on “American men to stand up and embrace their God-given responsibility as husbands, fathers, and citizens.”
“A free society that despises manhood will not remain free,” the description reads. The book is priced at $30.
“No republic has ever survived without men of character to defend what is just and true,” the book’s Amazon page states. “Starting with the wisdom of the ancients, from the Greek and Roman philosophers to Jesus of Nazareth, and drawing on the lessons of American history, Hawley identifies the defining strengths of men, including responsibility, bravery, fidelity, and leadership.”
The book comes on the heels of mockery towards Hawley after the Jan. 6 committee showed video footage of his running away from the violence at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 — just after he pumped his fist in solidarity with Trump supporters who gathered in front of the Capitol building that day.
Hawley later accused the committee of “trolling” him, saying, “I do not regret anything I did on that day.”
