NOW: Paterno Should Resign Over Comments

NOW: Paterno Should Resign Over Comments

(AP) STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Women’s rights advocates who say Joe Paterno made outrageous remarks about an alleged sexual assault want the Penn State football coach to resign.

Joanne Tosti-Vasey, president of the National Organization for Women in Pennsylvania, said Paterno’s comments last week represent an institutional insensitivity that endangers women. She issued a news release late Friday calling for Paterno’s resignation.

“When someone of his stature makes light of sexual assault, we have a serious problem,” Tosti-Vasey said. “It sends a message that this behavior is not serious ... that sexual assault or rape or violence against women is acceptable for an athlete.”

The coach’s remarks came a day before the Orange Bowl, when a reporter asked a question related to Florida State linebacker A.J. Nicholson. Nicholson was accused of sexual assault and sent home before Tuesday’s game.

Paterno replied by talking about past suspensions of Penn State players, according to an official transcript from the Orange Bowl.

He then added: “There’s some tough—there’s so many people gravitating to these kids. He may not have even known what he was getting into, Nicholson. They knock on the door; somebody may knock on the door; a cute girl knocks on the door. What do you do?”

Hopefully she hasn't contaminated the gene pool.

Every time someone says something that is misinterpreted or taken the wrong way, they are asked to resign. Joe might not have chosen the best words or meant something slightly different, but it surely doesn't warrant his resignation. NOW, the NAACP and may others among the politically correct crowd seem to have this all wrong.

My motto is "watch what they do not what they say" and Paterno seems to have "done" things just fine over the years.

No, but it's ok for Democrat presidents to be accused or rape. These idiot were no where to be found to defend Juanita Broderick or the others who were assaulted by Clinton.

"there’s so many people gravitating to these kids. He may not have even known what he was getting into, Nicholson. They knock on the door; somebody may knock on the door; a cute girl knocks on the door. What do you do?”

Sounds about right to me. Like Desiree Washington with Mike Tyson and that filthy slutbag with Kobe Bryant....groupie girls who hang all over sports stars are idiots if they don't think the players assume they want to sleep with them. Why else are they there? To suggest play calls?

If she knocks on my door, I take the Aviators, (they are coming back in style)if non-prescription, slam the door in her face, deadbolt it, then hunt my firearm, lock and load.

What a woof-woof.

With the name Paterno, he was bound to be stalked and jumped on. NOW has lawyer divisive troops on call 24/7 oriented at preselected targets for downfall... pure one sided psych warfare where no one attacked anyone... a typical feminist "cry wolf/rape" racist irresponsible for others method- one incidentaly aimed at abortion and infanticide, and even suicidal selfhate, totaly tunneled and uncaring in the guilts they roboticaly choose

Resignation? PC?

Divisive guilt psychology by NOW which forgets their extortive practices based on emotions. They are trying some pseudo-protective publicity stunt, no doubts, so long they can squeeze "that" through this "victim", pre-divided

Of course NOW is an insentitive racist group itself, based in irresponsibilizing women for others and babies in racism. Paterno thus had a point: women seeing men alone are commiting themselves to responsabilities, and if they are to be independent, then they assume those, if not they make themselves dependent on the man with whatever consequences follow

Kosher selective guilt speech's not cool, false prophetic guilts for evil manipulated actions, false responsibilizing, it's arbitrary and hypocritical. Paterno was merely raising a question on institutions, not labeling anything, unlike NOW's fanatic condemnations

We do not need to be perfect in what we say to everyone nor to any, but we need to assume responsibilities for others, which NOW is refusing to do. We cannot raise guilts on others arbitrarily but free from guilt and burden, the only righteous anger, for there is danger in irresponsible taking of responsibilities in total hypocrisy of taxation (profit conflict of interest in condemnation, and soul selling demand of repent from the famous in such taxation of satanic evil spirit proportion)

There is no deification of man nor woman in such pride worships but pure whoredom of soul and arts/hearts for societal icons

Heart tagging thought control by wicked stone hearts vs salvation while they remain in condemned ways remain the lead

I've heard that Wilt Chamberlain took advice from Chuck Berry. He had a Polaroid camera, which he used to photograph the women, nude and smiling,
while he stood beside them.

Personally I fired off a blistering wedgie of an email just help them feel hated. That seems to be their goal in life.

Also, if you check their website you’ll find a more recent picture of Joanne Tosti-Vasey. Age has not served her well.

You got it. Just saw a poll that 70% said his remark was not wrong and 90% saying he should not resign. Stupid to say he should resign. The NOW gang is soooooooo UN now!!!

20,000 is a lot of women, yes, but I'd guess that there were many multiple partner nights (and mornings and afternoons and early evenings and ...). After all, the sort of women who throw themselves at professional athletes aren't the sort who are averse to sharing...

If I read this right, Joe Paterno was being asked before a bowl game his reaction to an opposing team player's action(s). Now his response has both the local and National NOW calling for his resignation rather than a clarification or apology. If this isn't a kook group with a kook reaction that is striving for max publicity then I am my own father! NOW, as many have already pointed out, lost any credibility to me by not making one peep about Clinton's picadellos after having made so much about Justice Thomas and Senator Packwood earlier. I put them on the same nut farm as PETA and the UN Human Rights Commission. Hot air production for max publicity. Would that the MSM learn to ignore the far edge nuts on both sides but they feel the pressure for News of the World I guess!

Accused of sexual assault or sexual harassment?

You're guilty until proven innocent.

Or maybe just guilty because you were accused.

Here's the deal. I'm with Joe, but I would like to see him get fired. Why??? Because, I'm a Florida State fan, and our coach - Bobby Bowden - is the winningest coach of college football. Who is number two? Joe Paterno is...and he is one win away from tying Bobby Bowden. I love to see Joe retire or get fired so Bobby Bowden can stay the winningest coach of all time.

Sorry guys, but this time I'm putting football ahead of politics.

And btw, I'm also a Buckeye fan...soooooo, go Bucks! Win the national title tonight. The game is two hours away - can't wait!!!
