Obviously NOW encourages RAPE of Minor Girls by Old Sexual Perverts as Mr. Letterman appears to be since he believes his sexually perverted and obscene references to young girls being RAPED is somehow Humerous in his SICK, DECAYED MIND! NOW has so far NOT issued any Comment on Letterman’s Rants of Sexual Perversions and therefore must comdone this criminal behavior from It’s Favorite Celebritys!

NOW only supports LIBERAL, RADICAL women..if Sarah were a radical, going around saying how much she loves abortion, wants all guns taken away, and approves of gay marriage, they would be building a statue in her honor..Since she does not support any of those things, she is the devil in their eyes..they don’t give a damn about women..PERIOD

Here is what I sent to NOW as a comment to their website:
________________________________________________

Why is NOW not commenting and criticizing Dave Letterman for his disgusting, obscene , Anti women and girls sleazy comments on his show about Gov Palin and her daughter???

That was horrible! A 62 year old man joking about a 14 yr old girl getting raped at a baseball game? Calling a female governor “slutty”.

Why is the leading “feminist” organization so silent on this misogyny ? I am so dissapointed in your organization. Why are you not coming out NOW to discredit this type of verbal assasination of girls,laughing at their sexual victimization?

speak out NOW!

Let’s see if they respond..

This is a big waste of time.

You cannot stop a baby from crying. You cannot stop an untrained puppy from peeing on the floor. You cannot stop snow melting into streams in the late spring. You cannot reverse the orbit of the earth around the sun. And you cannot "make" these people be conservative or even fair. You just cannot.

Exactly! NOW was never about women. They were about class divisions and turmoil to disrupt our society. The same is true of the NCAA, ACLU, the gay rights movement, etc. They are all just socialist/communist fronts designed to destroy our society.

I know some of us try to treat them as they pretend to be so as to then expose them for what they are but that is a waste of time and a misunderstanding of the fight we are in.

New to the Internet?

Here is their press release, from their site:

Offender: David Letterman on “Late Show with David Letterman”

Media Outlet: CBS, aired 6/8/09

The Offense: Late night TV host David Letterman “joked” that during their recent trip to New York, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter “was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez” during a Yankees baseball game. The next night Letterman said that the hardest part of Palin’s trip was “keeping Eliot Spitzer away from her daughter.”

NOW Analysis: After two nights of “jokes” at the expense of Palin and her family, Letterman tried to explain himself and offer something of an apology. On his June 10 show, Letterman said he was referring to Palin’s 18-year-old daughter, Bristol — not the 14-year-old daughter who actually accompanied Palin on her New York trip. Letterman said “I recognize that these are ugly” jokes. NOW agrees. Comedians in search of a laugh should really know better than to snicker about men having sex with teenage girls (or young women) less than half their age.

The sexualization of girls and women in the media is reaching new lows these days — it is exploitative and has a negative effect on how all women and girls are perceived and how they view themselves. Letterman also joked about what he called Palin’s “slutty flight attendant look” — yet another example of how the media love to focus on a woman politician’s appearance, especially as it relates to her sexual appeal to men. Someone of Letterman’s stature, who appears on what used to be known as “the Tiffany Network” (CBS), should be above wallowing in the juvenile, sexist mud that other comedians and broadcasters seem to prefer.

On that point, it’s important to note that when Chelsea Clinton was 13 years old she was the target of numerous insults based on her appearance. Rush Limbaugh even referred to her as the “White House dog.” NOW hopes that all the conservatives who are fired up about sexism in the media lately will join us in calling out sexism when it is directed at women who aren’t professed conservatives.

Here is the reponse I received today from the Flight Attendants Union.

"Thank you for your comments and your kind words regarding the professionalism of flight attendants. Like you, we were upset by the recent comments made by David Letterman. Unfortunately, sexist themes of the past were instrumental in diminishing the role of flight attendants as safety professionals. We have worked very hard to overcome that public perception and proudly, have made great strides. Never before has there been a time when flight attendants have been so recognized for their role as safety professionals. Because of the outpouring of responses to the segment that ran on Monday night, Mr. Letterman apologized for his remarks. We trust that he takes to heart how his words affected the proud and hard working flight attendants across the country and never makes this mistake again.

No mention of their chastising him though. I am emailing him back to let him know that was no apology.

Stupid stewardesses. On his own slur against flight attendents, Mr. Letterman's apology was as follows:

"I kinda liked that joke!"

Generally, when singling out a totally unrelated event as "important to note", one should in fact cite an event that actually happened, rather than one that was made up by Al Franken.

Thanks NOW. Mooooooooooooo.

So far, without provocation, you’ve insinuated I was stupid by not finding your dubious post, then called me an asshole. I dont like that, so pardon me for wondering who the hell you think you are? I’ve said nothing to you that was derogative but have asked you to put or shut up. What’ll it be?

Tough time figuring that out, huh?

I thought you were wicked smaht?

Your question “New to the Internet?” was either an insult to me (and since you do not know me, I didn’t think it was an insult because only a dispsht troll or a child would be dismissive like that) or you were wondering whether or not it was the post was new to the internet. I was trying to clarify the question and discern whether or not I was dealing with a dipsht troll or a child.

You couldn’t figure that out?

So what about my question; how do you know they didn’t just post their “response” today after the criticism they took?
