Why Should We Care What NOW Thinks of Bill Maher’s Sexist Palin Slur?

Home - by - March 24, 2011 - 20:17 America/New_York - 22 Comments

On Friday night, the abhorrent idjit known as Bill Maher used a crass and offensive slur about Sarah Palin. It is one that I will not repeat here, but suffice it to say it is a favorite misogynistic epithet of the lofty, oh-so-enlightened leftist set. I’ve been called it many times in hate emails and even on Twitter. It is usually prefaced with “dumb” and is second only to their top favorite term used to describe women; a term that starts with the third letter of the alphabet. Frankly, this isn’t very surprising coming from the trollish Maher. He clearly has women issues, as he’s shown many times in the past. As well as, I suspect, “compensation” issues. Hello, small man’s complex!

What was more infuriating, although also not very surprising, was the lack of media response. John Ziegler, quoted in an article on FoxNews.com, said the following:

“If a conservative used that language to describe Hillary Clinton, we wouldn’t be hearing very much about Japan or Libya,” said John Ziegler, creator the documentary “Media Malpractice.” “If they said it about Michelle Obama, the media would be going 24/7 with the story.”

Absolutely true. Sexist slurs against The One’s wife would not be tolerated. It’s only okay if you think the subject of the slurs is super icky, like that “chick from the sticks”, bitter clinger Sarah Palin. The Fox News article went on to explain that the National Organization for Women (N.O.W.) at first chose not to comment on Maher’s grossly misogynistic remark. The reason given was that it is a “known fact that NOW does not correspond with Fox News.”

Oh, really?

They hold women who merely watch Fox News in such contempt that they won’t even deign to try to speak to them? Well, you know what is a “known fact”? The fact that N.O.W. does not give a rat’s patootie about women.  Matthew Vadum, also quoted in the article, said the following:

NOW really ought to change its name to National Organization for Liberal Women because as far as it’s concerned conservative women aren’t real women at all.”

While it’s true that N.O.W. has nothing but disdain for conservative women, I don’t think the above is entirely correct. N.O.W. might be an organization of Liberal Women, but they certainly aren’t for them. A better name would be the National Organization for Useful Idiots. N.O.W. proved that themselves with the statement they eventually grudgingly gave in response to Maher’s vile comment. They were shamed into giving some sort of response due to the cries of “Where is NOW? What does NOW have to say? Will they denounce this?!” This infuriated me further.

Because I say “who cares what N.O.W. has to say?” Why on earth would we give them any credence at all by expecting them to make a statement? About anything?

    Most men, and most truly independent and self-knowlegable and respectable women, during the 70′s and 80′s when NOW was first gaining its strength, never really gave NOW the time of day. Men who respect women, and women who truly respect themselves, never needed an organization such as NOW. The National Organization of Women is an association of women who are depressed, phobic and unsure of their own identities. I can’t believe the public reaches out for their opinions on certain matters. That’s like asking the patient to diagnose the doctor.

    NOW wants to tell women what they SHOULD be.
    They have no interest in defending a woman just for being.

    NOW and radical feminism is and always was just another of the creatures from the fetid sewers of 60s campus radicalism.
    It’s goals have never been “equality of the sexes” or “empowerment of women” that they claim.
    Like all of the leftist organisms, it’s objective is totalitarian statism and nihilism (expressed by it’s death cult devotion to abortion and deconstruction of the family).
    They fear and loathe Sarah Palin because she gives the lie to what they dishonestly claimed they were about: An independent,grass roots, forceful female leader.
    The problem is she doesn’t adhere to their dead end ,perpetual victim posture that demands a state directed society and that derides “breeders”.
    Her devotion to her family , particularly her Down’s syndrome child and her belief in traditional American values of individual liberty, grates on their anti-human, collectivist sensibilities.

    Like woody, I was reminded about NOW’s disgraceful stance over the Clinton/Lewinsky deal.
    At the time, I saw their then-president, Patricia Ireland, asked where was NOW and why weren’t they going after Clinton? His behaviour was outrageous, etc. etc.
    I’m haunted by the shit-eating grin on her face as she mumbled some lesbo-lib garbage about their ‘relationship’ being ‘consensual’ and therefore, nobody’s business.

    Ziganto is right. Let them fade into obscurity, where they belong.

    There was a cover-pic on Life magazine around 30 years ago commemorating NOW. It looked like a parody. The entire group were obviously womyn of one alternative lifestyle or another. Wish I knew how to find the pic, but it appeared to me the photo editor intentionally used that particular pic to back-handedly discredit the organization.

    RWF — we all know you’re a peophile. What the hell does that have to do with this topic? Your behavior in this and many other posts is that of a spoiled rotten little kid who doesn’t know how to play with the big kids and therefore says and does stupid and outrageous things to bring attention to himself. Grow up already.

    BTW — pedophilia is nothing you should be proud of or bragging about.

    Don’t we all feel the same way about most of the political talking heads?

    They are not on the same page as most of us.
