Posted on 01/29/2008 6:27:02 AM PST by Sertorius

"Marcia Pappas, NOW-NY's president, wrote in a news release that on a host of issues and positions, "Women have forgiven Kennedy, stuck up for him, stood by him," but "We are repaid with his abandonment. He's picked the new guy over us. He's joined the list of progressive white men who can't or won't handle the prospect of a woman president"

The sexism of NOW is breathtaking. We all must support Hillary because she arguably is a woman. No one can make a judgment based on anything else.

You'd better put some ice on that Marcia. You know you wanted it.

It doesn't get any better than this. I just wish I had a crystal ball & could feel secure that Hillary or Obama will not actually win in November. If I could be sure, then I really enjoy all this.

Forgiven him for what? Are these NOW hags suggesting that Kennedy did something wrong, but "women have forgiven" him for it? (Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.)

I could see how Obama's camp can turn this on NOW.

...NOWs picked the white woman over us. They've joined the list of progressive white organizations who can't or won't handle the prospect of a black man for president..."

So, Ted “accidentally” drowns a woman friend, and NOW gives him a pass. Ted supports a “clean, well versed” man and NOW disses him.

Could there be some kind of agenda here?

Look what world they have created for themselves.

If you support Barack over Hillary, you are sexist.

If you support Hillary over Barck, you are racist.

They all must be thanking their stars that their actual vote is secret, and if they keep their mouths shut, no one can call them anything bad.

Priceless.

What problems they have:

ignore darfur and any real womens issues
and implode over who to support...

the wife of the guy who rapes women or the favorite of the guy who has killed one.

He's picked the new guy over us.

This is the key portion of the quote. These ladies are old and getting older. Because they embraced shallow adolescent values for an entire lifetime, they are not capable of peacefully entering this portion of their lives. Sad.

NOW also doesn’t seem to issue such angry statements over women in burkas or being stoned to death for being raped.

Is that the NY chapter, or the whole country?

And does that include the two little old ladies who thought it was a zoning meeting?

“NOW has about 50 members.”

During the late 90’s early 2000’s, our local fishwrap had a very vile left wing editor/publisher.

His favorite way to manipulate the news was to have his photographers take a picture of a Now group, Lesbians, La Raza and Greens and then present a few misfits as a large group on the front page.

Marcia must be talking about three women or so. Such utter rubbish! Caroline Kennedy, a woman and mother of three, supports the young, energetic, and well spoken Obama. Caroline Kennedy speaks for many, many more women than Marcia, I would guess. And the idea of supporting a woman for President simply because she is a woman, is racist is it NOT? What happened to the content of character vs. color of skin or gender?

Oddly those rules only work for Dim candidates:

1. Notice Dims felt little pressure to vote for Swann or Blackwell or Steele because they were black.

2. Notice Dims feel little pressure to vote for GOP women candidates either.

White men? Why bring race into it? Does this mean that it’s ok for non-white men?

NOW “forgives” and covers up for true misogynists like Clinton and Kennedy because the “feminist” movement is all about socialism, abortion, and most recently, lesbianism.

Nothing in this actually promotes women’s rights and equality.

The left sides with whomever opposes and seeks to destroy Western Culture.

They believe, somehow, that once Western Civilization is destroyed, they can impose their own culture on us (and somehow forget that there was a conquering culture that would now be in power).
