As we continue to be drug along by the
birth control distraction from actual economic issues debate, the National Organization of Women, AKA, the Tammies, have been permitted to re-emerge from under the bus the contribute to the debate massive distraction effort. The President of that organization recently started speaking out spewing propaganda. CNS News has more…
Roman Catholic bishops and other religious leaders have failed to keep women from using birth control and now want the “police power of the state” to stop women from doing so, National Organization for Women President Terry O’Neill said Thursday at a gathering of feminist activists.
As a result, O’Neill argued, these religious leaders are now “demanding that the government step in and use the force and power and police power of the state to prevent women from taking birth control because the bishops have failed.”
O’Neill’s remarks came in response to a question from CNSNews.com about a large photograph on display at the press conference. It depicted five faith leaders, including a Catholic bishop, who testified at a Feb. 16 House hearinginto the Obama administration’s controversial health insurance mandate.
CNSNews.com noted that Bishop William Lori was the only faith leader–the others were Jewish, Lutheran and Baptist–who opposed all forms of birth control and pointed out that the hearing was about whether the government mandate violated the free exercise of religion.
OK, this is simple. No one has advocated for banning birth control. This is only a matter of breaking religions institutions, as well as distracting from bigger issues. However, by my estimation, the Tammies have no room to complain about anything. I have several reasons for saying this:
1. In 2010, I covered the fact that “rape trees” are being found along the border with Mexico. The idea is simple, and revolting. People that are “escorting” illegals across the border, tie women and girls to trees, rape them, and then leave their panties hanging from the tree as a sort of trophy. Here is the position of the Tammies on this terrible attack on women…
As you can see, they have nothing to say. I guess leftist causes such as amnesty takes priority over the rape of girls and women.
2. OWS Rapes and cover up: As we have covered extensively, there have been a large number of rapes at #Occupy camps. Also, underage girls were sold as prostitutes on several occasions. Then, to complicate the matters, victims came forward and said that the “leadership” of the camps discouraged them from reporting the rapes. So, we have rapes, child molestation, and a coverup. The response from the Tammies?
Yes, that’s right. Rapes, molestation, and a cover up. But, I’m assuming that since OWS is yet another leftist cause, the Tammies decided to over look this as well.
3. When was the last time that someone from the Tammies testified before Congress, or had a major media blitz over honor killings, or other dehumanizing aspects of Sharia Law? I looked, but I couldn’t find any (If anyone can find such an incident, kindly drop it in the comment section). So, I guess birth control and abortion is more important than women being killed? Apparently so.
Now, let’s contrast that with the front page of the NOW website, as of about 10:00 PM last night…

So, it seems that the Tammies are rather selective in their outrage. Religious institutions, especially Christian ones, are to be attacked relentlessly. Marxist rapists, and men who murder women at the behest of their god…not so much.
So, Ms. O’Neill, I really have to suggest that you crawl back under the bus. Your entire organization lost it’s credibility during the Clinton administration, and it’s done nothing to earn it back. As long as NOW is selective in it’s outrage, you’ll be seen as nothing more than political operatives. I can almost respect an organization that is at the very least, consistent with it’s stated beliefs and goals. NOW is not. Stop pretending that you are anything more than political hacks.
