NOW, AND THE JIMMY FALLON ATTACK ON MICHELE BACHMANN

Ken Berwitz

As I am sure you know (100% sure if you read this blog), earlier this week, when Michele Bachmann was a guest on NBC's Jimmy Fallon show, the music played as she came on stage was a song called "Lyin' Ass Bitch". 

That, of course, is utterly disgusting.  Fallon apologized afterwards (given that this occurred on his show, I'm trying to think of an apology that could possibly be less credible - and coming up dry) and, a day or two later, so did an NBC executive (ditto on what I said about Fallon).

Now, almost a week later, we have this statement from Terry O'Neill, who heads NOW, the so-called National Organization for Women:

I am heartened to see that conservatives are learning how hostility toward women in public life functions and and how it feels to be on the receiving end. However, I cant help but wonder why their outrage is limited to those they condemn as liberals for taking shots at the Bachmanns and the Palins of the world. Rush Limbaugh and his ilk are infamous for using sexist, racist, classist, homophobic remarks against anyone who doesnt march to his extremist drumbeat. NOW regularly calls out sexism directed at conservative women as well as feminists, and we often speak up to remind everyone, including our political allies, that these types of slurs are harmful to all women, and they need to stop. The Roots song choice for Bachmanns entrance was disrespectful, degrading and juvenile, and the bandleaders apology was weak. Thankfully, host Jimmy Fallon and NBC stepped up with more sincere apologies. Now, will the right wing start policing its own? Im not holding my breath.

In other words, the fact that Michele Bachmann was effectively called gutter names by Fallon's choice of musical introduction is little more than an opportunity to attack right wing conservatives.  Consider that Ms Bachmann herself is a right wing conservative and you realize that, incredibly, NOW is attacking her too. 

What an offensive pile of BS this is.  And what a fraudulent "organization" NOW is.

Has NOW ever marched in front of a mosque and demanded equal rights for Muslim women?   Has NOW ever marched at any "Occupy" site where women have been molested and raped?  Does NOW ever attack anyone or anything that is to the left of center? 

No, no and no.

NOW is not a woman's group.  It is a left wing front.  Period.  Its concern about women begins on the far left, and ends somewhere marginally closer to, but not anywhere near, the center.  The right?  Forget it.  They don't count as women.

No wonder our Accomplice Media love NOW so much....
