  • The Presidential Degradation of the Medal of Freedom

    American Thinker ^ | November 24, 2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    At the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom ceremony held in the East Room of the White House, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama chose to honor more than just a few 'winners.' The colorful collection was a cacophony of politically correct Democrat darlings, with a journalist, a RINO, two deceased homosexuals, a few Latinos, and an occasional black sports figure thrown in for good measure. In addition to the eclectic array of 13 relatively benign forgers of freedom, three controversial awards also went to a race-baiting billionaire, a misogynist former president, and an abortion-supporting, man-hating women's rights activist. It...

    Obama Gives Radical Feminist Steinem Medal of Freedom President Obama said that Gloria Steinem “changed how women thought about themselves.” He also labeled her a “game-changer,” a “disrupter,” and a “champion noticer.” Obama stated, “She’s alert to all the ways, large and small, that women had been and, in some cases, continue to be treated unfairly just because they’re women… because of her work, across America and around the world, more women are afforded the respect and opportunities that they deserve.” Obama did not mention Steinem’s disdain for heterosexual relationships (Steinem infamously remarked that “a woman without a man is...

    [...] These are just a few samples from the arsenal of degrading language Limbaugh deploys on women, people of color, lesbians and gays, immigrants, the disabled, the elderly, Muslims, Jews, veterans, environmentalists and so forth. Limbaugh doesn't just call people names. He promotes language that deliberately dehumanizes his targets. Like the sophisticated propagandist Josef Goebbels, he creates rhetorical frames -- and the bigger the lie the more effective -- inciting listeners to view people they disagree with as sub-humans. His longtime favorite term for women, "femi-nazi," doesn't even raise eyebrows anymore, an example of how rhetoric spreads when unchallenged by...

    Next month, some of the top pro-abortion activists will headline a fundraiser for the re-election campaign of pro-abortion President Barack Obama. The fundraiser is no surprise given the close relationships the president has maintained with them.The fundraising will include First Lady Michelle Obama and, in her first appearance for Obama, pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem. They will be joined at the fundraiser in New York City held at a Park Avenue location on September 20th along with Emily’s List president Stephanie Schriock and Cecile Richards (see left), the president of the Planned Parenthood abortion business.Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the pro-abortion congresswoman...

    Faux feminists are terrified. They’re so frightened of the Year of the Conservative Woman they’re trotting out Gloria Steinem, yesteryear’s poster-child for the womyn’s movement, to make the rounds in all the usual leftist places to “reclaim” the term “Mama Grizzlies.” (Did they ever own that term?) Steinem recently staked her reputation on her claim that grizzly bears heart abortion. The verdict is still out on whether or not grizzlies use #ihadanabortion tags on Twitter. Steinem opines in her article, Why Mama Grizzlies Vote Pro-Choice: In fact, Mama Grizzlies─so misrepresented for political purposes by Sarah Palin─know this, too. In real...

    LA TImes ^ | 6/23/10 | Michael Muskal
    Gloria Steinem, an icon of the women’s movement, has criticized Sarah Palin for trying to brand herself as a feminist.In an interview with @katiecouric, Steinem argued that a woman who chooses not to have an abortion can call herself a feminist, but “you can't be a feminist who says other women can't have an abortion." To be sure, Palin’s role as a feminist has been an issue ever since she made history by becoming the first woman to run on the Republican national ticket. Unlike the Democratic side of feminism, however, Palin is a conservative and opposes many of the...

    The first decade of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study ended on a high note with the presentation of the Radcliffe Medal to writer and organizer Gloria Steinem on May 28. “I’m definitely living to 100,” Steinem said, “but now I have to”—in order to earn the medal. A 1956 Smith alumna, Steinem, 75, told in her speech of how, as a member of the Smith College board, she and then-Smith president Ruth Simmons imagined a merger of Smith and Radcliffe in the late 1990s, shortly before the formation of the Institute. Steinem saw Radcliffe, as it negotiated with Harvard,...

    As much of the nation was preparing to watch a fortysomething working woman, governor and mother debate a gray-haired male senator for the vice presidency, feminist icon Gloria Steinem ridiculed John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as a running mate. “The reason we have Sarah Palin as the vice presidential candidate for Sen. McCain is because he couldn’t have the competent woman vice president he wanted … because the Christian right wing would not allow it,” Steinem told a standing-room-only crowd of about 450 mostly women packing an auditorium at the State University of New York at Cobleskill. Steinem cited...

    The nomination of GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is causing a schism on the feminist left. A group founded by philanthropist Susie Tompkins Buell, a wealthy member of the secretive left-wing Democracy Alliance, accused journalists of sexism in its coverage of Palin and told reporters "to back off," Jonathan Martin of the Politico reports today: WomenCount, a group co-founded by top Hillary [Clinton] fundraiser Susie Tompkins Buell, posted a lengthy item on their blog decrying questions over whether Palin can, as a mother of five, juggle her family responsibilities and still be vice president.

    At Dennis Prager's blog, here on the Townhall website, under the entry, "Steinem: Palin Not A Real Woman" is a thread that, for me, perfectly illustrates how many people on the left conduct themselves when called to debate a given issue. Emotion takes the place of reason, feelings substitue for wisdom. Responding to an article by Gloria Steinem on his Thursday broadcast, Dennis Prager argued that the reason Steinem-bred feminists do not support Governor Sarah Palin is because she is a conservative. By any measure of accomplishment, Prager reasoned, Sarah Palin should be the aspiration of young feminists everywhere, but...

    Here's the good news: Women have become so politically powerful that even the anti-feminist right wing -- the folks with a headlock on the Republican Party -- are trying to appease the gender gap with a first-ever female vice president. We owe this to women -- and to many men too -- who have picketed, gone on hunger strikes or confronted violence at the polls so women can vote. We owe it to Shirley Chisholm, who first took the "white-male-only" sign off the White House, and to Hillary Rodham Clinton, who hung in there through ridicule and misogyny to win...

    How desperate have Hillary Clinton's backers become? One of the more prominent supporters, Gloria Steinem, takes to the pages of the New York Times to complain about the ascendancy of Barack Obama because black men have had an easier time than American women. In doing so, she inadvertently makes the Republican case against the entire slate of choices on the Democratic side: THE woman in question became a lawyer after some years as a community organizer, married a corporate lawyer and is the mother of two little girls, ages 9 and 6.

    TO thunderous acclaim from the liberal intelligentsia, a team of feminist icons - including Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda - last year launched a women-run radio network. The mainstream media dutifully parroted press releases describing the launch as a "breakthrough" for women in the male-dominated world of talk radio. The Boston Globe, for example, proclaimed that "GreenStone gives women an outlet." Business Week described the venture as "Talk Radio Minus The Testosterone." Last Friday, GreenStone Media signed off for good. Why did this effort fail?

    FORMER staffers of Green Stone Media, the defunct women's radio network, are grumbling that its founders aren't living up to their feminist creds. Women's libbers Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda are "putting their own reputations above their female employees' finances," one source told Page Six. The recently shuttered station is "refusing to pay severance, and the founders won't file for bankruptcy protection because it would publicly embarrass Jane and Gloria." A spokesperson for Fonda told us, "This is pure speculation. There is no foundation to the accusations and the staff has been informed throughout."

    Three of America’s most controversial women — Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda, and Rosie O’Donnell — just launched an all-women-run radio network, promising to offer programming that’s less polarizing than the typical all-talk AM radio fare. A women-centered radio network isn’t a bad idea: Lots of successful media outlets specifically target women, from sappy television romances on Lifetime and Oxygen to family-centered morning shows and magazines. The new all-women creation, Greenstone Media, follows a similar model. It endeavors to be entertaining as well as informative, and relate to women’s everyday challenges with family and work. Steinem told Reuters that the network...

    Q: It’s been a generation since you founded Ms. magazine and became the face of American feminism, so why, at this late and supposedly liberated date, do we need GreenStone Media, an all-female, all-talk radio network that you just started with Jane Fonda? The radio has become overbalanced toward the ultraright. AM talk radio does not reflect the fact that only 30 percent of the country, at the most, is anywhere near Rush Limbaugh. But women, too, can be noisy right-wingers. Look at Ann Coulter. If you create a movement, you create jobs and profits for someone to sell it...

    Killing your customer is generally not good for business. It is amazing how many people don’t understand this. Take, for instance, the French. The November 24th issue of Medical News Today reports on French abortion advocates who argue that French women encounter many obstacles when seeking an abortion. Abortion units have closed in 40% of private clinics in Paris for financial reasons and the number of doctors willing to do abortions is decreasing. According to certain lights, this is a Bad Thing. What Medical News Today failed to point out was the obvious: France has a total fertility rate of...

    It's no coincidence that Brit director Mike Leigh's film "Vera Drake" - a sympathetic portrayal of a working-class lady who performs illegal abortions to help young women in 1950s England - has come out at the height of a presidential campaign. "When we decided to make the movie a couple of years ago, we calculated that it would be released around about now," Leigh told me yesterday. "I'm trying to get the audience to confront that abortion is a moral dilemma. We know that life is destroyed. But I'm pro-choice. So far as I'm concerned, it is an overcrowded, hostile,...
