Tammy Bruce, formerly of NOW, has penned this excellent piece about California NOW and the "W" word.
In it she opens with....
"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."
But don't stop there. Really. Be sure to read the WHOLE thing! Even if Mr. Obama and his minions want you to be afraid... very afraid... of FOX news.
That's one of my "Pet Peeves" too, Rev. Amy. How dare some smart ass punk of a Physical Therapist tell YOU what you can and can't read or watch! (Like you, or any of us, are too stoopid to see what that's about??)
It is a sad day, really.... when "Progressives" become so non-progressive that they actually defend whore, slut, bitch and cunt as "OK to use" words. And then follow their nonsense up with "and you best not be listening to our dissenters at such-and-such news outlet."
It's an even sadder day when a whole swath of *truly* Progressive women are forced into the camp of "the enemy" because it is only there that we can expect our outrage to be aired.
Tammy Bruce is right. 'Cept, it's not only NOW that is having a "public nervous breakdown." It's an entire industry that oppresses women "for our own good." (Because, ya know, the only thing that matters to any of us is whether we can get an abortion at the drop of a hat. And we had better tow the line, or they'll take THAT right away, too.)
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."
