  • NOW: Conservatives "Equal" to Loughner, Blames Right for Violence

    Jared Loughner is a disgusting person. He murdered six people in cold blood, including a little girl and a federal judge. He shot a member of Congress in the head, before continuing to wildly shoot into a crowd of innocent people. He must be condemned and rejected. The National Organization for Women (NOW for short) has a different approach. Instead of condemning Loughner outright, they are using his senseless acts as political hay, equating conservatives to his hateful rampage and blaming the deaths of innocent people on figures like Sarah Palin. The very same day that Loughner unleashed a barrage...
  • Women's Rights Must Be Guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution [The National Organization for Women]

    01/06/2011 4:56:33 PM PST · by Sub-Driver · 37 replies
    Women's Rights Must Be Guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution We won't stand for sexists like Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia interpreting women's rights as unprotected in the U.S. Constitution. In a recent interview, Scalia erroneously stated that women are not protected under the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause. Right now, five justices have the power to pick and choose when women should be considered full citizens. And that's not right. We need to add an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution that will guarantee women and men equal status under the law. I stand with NOW today to demand that...

    The latest Latma satire video takes on none other than the far-left organization Peace Now. The video shows “Yariv Googleheimer”, a take on Peace Now chairman Yariv Oppenheimer, describing what his organization does to make sure that no new Jewish homes are built in Judea and Samaria. Showing with pride some of the areas in which his organization has managed to halt Jewish construction, “Googleheimer” speaks proudly about seeing the hills “so bare, without a single hut or building.”
  • NOW goes after Hooters for catering to kids

    The National Organization for Women filed complaints against local Hooters restaurants Thursday, but not for exploiting its scantily clad waitresses by subjecting them to leering and groping customers. The subject this time was Hooters' catering to children. The restaurants in San Francisco, San Bruno, Sacramento and Orange County are classified as "adult entertainment" establishments but also serve minors, NOW's California chapter said in papers filed with police and prosecutors. What's more, the organization said, Hooters provides child menus, high chairs and booster seats, and sells T-shirts in children's sizes that identify the wearer as a "Future Hooters Girl."

    The video offers a rare glimpse of the type of punishment inflicted on women who break the country's strict morality code. The victim was punished under Sharia law for wearing trousers under her Islamic clothing. The footage shows her crawling on the ground, raising her arm to try to ward off the attacks and screaming as the whip strikes. The public punishment sparked protests among females against laws they said humiliated women. Dozens of them were arrested. The governor of Khartoum said there had been a mistake in the way the victim's punishment had been carried out. Sky's foreign affairs...

First, when I say, “God’s baptized saints,” I’m talking about us. You and I are God’s baptized saints, the people he has made his own in Holy...

    US women's groups Thursday were bracing for a fight over abortion rights and gender equality with the new conservative majority in Congress. "We now face an anti-choice majority and a new speaker of the House who will threaten to roll back hard-fought progress for women," said Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women (NOW), the largest women's group in the United States. Republicans by Wednesday had picked up 60 seats in the 435-seat House of Representatives, well more than the 39 they needed for a majority. At least 49 of the newcomers to the House are opposed to...

    NOW to Media: Stop Reducing Women Candidates to Sex Objects Statement of NOW President Terry O'Neill October 28, 2010 Sexist, misogynist attacks against women have no place in the electoral process, regardless of a particular candidate's political ideology. Today the tabloid website Gawker published an anonymous piece titled "I Had A One-Night Stand With Christine O'Donnell" that takes the routine sexual degradation of women candidates to a disgusting new low. NOW repudiates Gawker's decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O'Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into...

    As I sat above the Hoover Dam under the broiling sun, I was getting jittery. There was Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona, speaking at the dedication of a bridge linking Arizona and Nevada 890 feet above the Colorado River. As the politicians droned on and my Irish skin turned toasty brown, I worried that Governor Brewer might make a citizen’s arrest and I would have to run for my life across the desert. She has, after all, declared open season on anyone with a suspicious skin tone in her state. We are in the era of Republican Mean Girls, grown-up...
  • 'There's no such thing as rape within marriage', says Muslim leader of sharia law courts in Britain

    A senior Muslim cleric has been condemned by police and other Muslim leaders for claiming that there is no such thing as rape within marriage. Sheikh Maulana Abu Sayeed, president of the Islamic Sharia Council in Britain, sparked outrage when he said he believed that men who rape their wives should not be prosecuted because 'sex is part of marriage'. He further claimed, during an interview with the blog The Samosa, that many married women who made accusations of rape were lying. His comments have caused fury among senior police officers, who already face great difficulties in getting women to...

    You know the phrase "a disaster waiting to happen?" For over a decade now I've been waiting and watching, knowing that the National Organization for Women would inevitably have a very public nervous breakdown brought on by the pressures of using women's issues to further the misogynist leftist agenda. The only questions were when it would happen and how public the collapse would be. I now have my answer--October 2010. After years of slouching into obscurity, NOW finally got some attention last week, much like car wrecks do on the freeway. By now you all know the details--a week ago...

    The retirement nest egg of an entire generation is stashed away in this small town along the Ohio River: $2.5 trillion in IOUs from the federal government, payable to the Social Security Administration. It's time to start cashing them in. For more than two decades, Social Security collected more money in payroll taxes than it paid out in benefits — billions more each year. Not anymore. This year, for the first time since the 1980s, when Congress last overhauled Social Security, the retirement program is projected to pay out more in benefits than it collects in taxes — nearly $29...

    Last week, the National Organization for Women and the PAC of the California NOW chapter took heat for their endorsement of state Attorney General Jerry Brown (D) over Meg Whitman (R) in the gubernatorial race in the wake of comments by a Brown aide that Whitman was a "whore." At the time, national NOW President Terry O'Neill said that anyone who "from here on" calls a woman a "whore" should be fired. She might want to have a talk with California NOW President Parry Bellasalma, who today told TPM in response to a question that "Meg Whitman could be described...

"Meg Whitman could be described as 'a political whore.' Yes, that's an accurate statement," Bellasalma said after a TPM blogger called to ask her...

    It's comforting to know there is still one political party out there willing to battle the dark forces of misogyny. Just knowing that so many of its leading lights — John Edwards, Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton, come to mind — did not hesitate to personally show their profound respect for womankind is reassuring. But I fear we're losing ground. As you've heard, nepotism's never-ending gift to California — the nation, really — Jerry Brown, is in a tight gubernatorial race against Republican Meg Whitman, former eBay CEO. In leaked audio tapes, a Brown campaign aide is heard mulling over...

NOW President Terry O'Neill also criticized Brown on Wednesday for saying during a debate the previous night that the private banter is the kind of thing that typically happens in a campaign.
