NOW Reponds to Maher’s Attack on Palin With ‘We are on to you, right-wingers’
Big Hollywood ^ | March 23, 2011 | John Nolte

Posted on 03/22/2011 9:19:28 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Good grief, I would’ve had more respect for the National Organization for Women (not a high bar) had they just said nothing. Via Caroline May at The Daily Caller:

In the wake of Bill Maher’s tasteless slur against Sarah Palin Friday night, in which he called the former Alaska governor a “tw@t,” the National Organization for Woman (NOW) has not only denounced the use of such sexist words, but also issued a warning to conservatives who they believe are attempting to use the issue to discredit their organization: “We are on to you, right-wingers.”

Listen, supposedly progressive men (ok, and women, too): Cut the crap! Stop degrading women with whom you disagree and/or don’t like by using female body terms or other gender-associated slurs,” Lisa Bennett, NOW communications director wrote in a statement. …

“You’re trying to take up our time getting us to defend your friend Sarah Palin. If you keep us busy defending her, we have less time to defend women’s bodies from the onslaught of reproductive rights attacks and other threats to our freedom, safety, livelihood, etc,” wrote Bennett. “Sorry, but we can’t defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media. That task would be impossible, and it would consume us. You know this would not be a productive way to fight for women’s equal rights, which is why you want us stuck in this morass.” …

“Did you speak up once on behalf of a woman politician before you learned the name Sarah Palin? Did you work toward equality for women in any way prior to August 2008?” wrote Bennett.....

NOW-

These morons see Hillary as their idol, someone who played the role of the subservient wife under Clinton and rode to her political career on his coat train. In the meantime they will let self made powerhouses like Rice or Palin get chewed up, have sexist slurs thrown their way etc. Screw you NOW, you're a fake, a fraud and phony and most women at this point now this.

I will be watching from the catbird seat when NOW and the Islamist Mutawas battle here in the US over women's rights. They should start trying their burkas on now because that time will come.

So Bill Maher uses an offensive word and we conservatives catch flak from NOW? WTF? I guess I shouldn't be surprised... The whack-job in Tucson was a lefty, yet somehow we conservatives also got blamed for that one too. I guess the message here is that anything positive happens, the lefties will take responsibility even when it is none of their doing. Yet when anything bad happens it is automatically conservatives/TEA Partiers' fault...

And they tell us not to be prejudiced...

You’re right my friend, it will come to a head next year. Sheep and the goats....

NOW can stick it up it’s morass; they’ll be seen once and for all for what they are. Champions of Women’s Right’s- not.

Without God, there is no firm definition of right and wrong- only a wavering, flailing at the vestiges of Truth.

Palin 2012!

Of course they got more important things do do than help Sarah Palin, they’re too preoccupied fighting against the oppression women in the muzzie countries have to deal with, right? Isn’t that right??

I'm forming my new business now. I'll call it Exploding Heads Clean Up Services.

We will safely dispose, clean and restore all surfaces and areas degraded by the exploding heads of liberals and elites infected by PDS.

Just for the sake of argument, let's say we didn't. Isn't the important thing we do now? We gotta start somewhere, don't we?

The VERY LAST organization i’d want to see defend Sarah is NOW! They LOST ALL CREDIBILITY when they went into hiding concerning Slick Willie’s assaults on women and his high profile Presidential philandering.

Yep, if it was a republican president they would have thrown a tantrum over the way Clinton treated women as a used Kleenex. But no, Gloria Steinem defended Clinton with her “one free grope” defense. And just wrap your heads around what they would be saying if Glenn Beck called Hilary a dumb twat.

Baloney. Not "cant" defend Palin, but "wont"

Seriously, who else other than gays, wifebeaters (closet gays), 12-year-olds, and minorities, was this junior-high namecalling comment against a caucasian woman intended to amuse? Is it any real surprise this sexist slur came from a ‘confirmed bachelor’ (read: gay) man who once had Adrianna Huffington as his beard? Quite hypocritical, seeing as gays scream bloody murder if a gay slur is used against them. Lawsuits and firings would have followed the use of the slur directed against a minority woman. It was 'open season' on ridiculing caucasian men 10 years ago - that has now progressed to ridiculing caucasian women.

The big question is, are we going to let Sarah deal with this alone, or are we going to speak up for her? Where are our legislators condemning NOW's response, and Mahar's comment to begin with? Where are our letters to HBO decrying the ridiculing? There should be tens of thousands of them. I'm writing one - will you?
