National Organization of Hags and Baby Killers ^ | 2-6-19 | Now

Statement by NOW President Toni Van Pelt 02.06.2019 WASHINGTON – The National Organization for Women (NOW) calls on Justin Fairfax to remove himself from the line of succession by resigning his office.

Dr. Vanessa Tyson has made the brave decision to come forward and reveal in her own words what happened between her and Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax during the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston. Her story is horrifying, compelling and clear as day – and we believe her.

We believe and support survivors. We always believe and support survivors.

This is more important than who is going to be the next governor of Virginia. This isn’t about politics. It’s about a woman who has experienced sexual assault – a serious crime – at the hands of a powerful man, who is now attacking her character. In order to tear down the systemic and toxic sexism in this country, we must speak out against it.

Enough is enough.

It’s “he said, she said”, so they’ll never convict this guy in a court.

BUT politically, he’s a dead-man-walking right now ... only a matter of time until he resigns.

Or, he might try to hang in there, and drag the whole Democratic Party down with him ...

either way, a win-win for us

I call on the NAACP and Blacks Lives Matter to denounce NOW.

What's happening to Fairfax is pure racism!

So sick and tired of DA MAN keeping blacks down!

Leftist Ben Tribbett hints there may be more Fairfax accusers.

It’s hilarious as the media was absolutely giddy about the prospect of Fairfax replacing Northam two days ago. He’s as far left as you can get, and a Black guy to boot. They were stepping all over themselves to get rid of Northam for this clown.

I think Fairfax is the only one that gets the boot...

and that just might piss off black voters.

“It’s “he said, she said”, so they’ll never convict this guy in a court.”

Maybe she had a uvula smear done at the time. Or has a blue dress.

I think I would prefer he damage the entire democrat party, not just himself.

And to think, it only took 15 years.

Oh, probably. These creeps get away with it once, with no complaints, and they realize they can keep getting away with it - until they're caught.

For a long time, The System worked in favor of these creeps - they knew the women wouldn't be believed, so they continued their abuse while the women said nothing. (A similar dynamic, sadly, worked for the pedophiles, for a long time.)

But this is a new time. Yes, there's always potential for false accusations, but these accusations have a disturbing ring of reality about them. I believe Dr. Vanessa Tyson.

Remember John Conyers? Where's he now?

Those feminists are racist.

Someone should tell them what Stokely Carmichael said was the place for women in the Revolution.

This is the group that sat on their hands while Bill Clinton abused, raped, and humiliated seven women...because he “kept abortion legal.”

It's not a win, of any kind, for "us".

If he raped her (and I believe this story fits the MA law of rape), he should be indicted, extradited, tried, and sent to prison if convicted.

But this business of accusations of past racism, sexism, odd lookism, etc, etc presents as much danger to "us" as it does to "them". It uses extrajudicial punishment, with no fairness to the accused, and we have to put a stop to it.

“Do women have a place in the movement?”

Stokely C: “Yes, Prone”.
