NOW president returns fire on Limbaugh

By DYLAN BYERS | 5/9/12 10:12 AM EDT

Terry O'Neill, the president of the progressive National Organization for Women (NOW), is returning fire on conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who yesterday called her organization a "faux feminist group" and its members "femi-nazis," and launched an anti-NOW Facebook page called "National Organization for Rush Babes."

"I don't think conservative women want to associate themselves with his hate. I don't think they would want to associate themselves with his bullying," O'Neill told me this morning. "I don't think conservative women would want to associate themselves with his vitriolic attacks."

Limbuagh yesterday described National Organization for Rush Babes as an effort to counter NOW's "Enough Rush" campaign, which encourages advertisers to boycott his program. Limbaugh said NOW was wrong to think it speaks for women: "If there was ever a group that speaks for an almost infinitesimal minority of women, it's them," he said. "Rush Babes for America [is] dedicated to the millions of conservative women who know what they believe in: family, American Values, and not being told by faux feminist groups how to think."

But O'Neill said that conservative women, while they may agree with Limbaugh on matters of policy, would not support his "bullying," citing his recent attacks on Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, who he referred to as a "slut" and a "prostitute."

"I think there are extraordinarily few people who agree with what he said about Sandra Fluke," she said. "I don't think women want to watch Sandra Fluke having sex in a video tape for the sexual gratification of men."

>>I don’t think conservative women want to associate themselves with his hate<<

As usual, libs comment on Rush while never having listened to even a minute of his show. One thing Rush does NOT have is “hate.” The worst you’ll get is (appropriate) disdain.

And for the bullying now nags to accuse Rush of bullying is the ultimate in irony (and projection).

"I don't think conservative women want to associate themselves with his hate. I don't think they would want to associate themselves with his bullying," O'Neill told me this morning. "I don't think conservative women would want to associate themselves with his vitriolic attacks.

True.

She "feels", which is why she's a liberal. Because if she thought...anything at all...she might wonder why liberals don't mind being associated with Bill Maher's hate, Barack Obama's bullying or Debbie Mayonnaise-Hair Schultz's vitriolic attacks. And she might not like the answer.

Whatever plausible integrity NOW had, is long, long gone.

The fact that they were absolutely silent during the Clinton rape/Lewinsky scandal blew whatever credibility they had, completely and irrevocably away.

"I don't think women want to watch Sandra Fluke having sex in a video tape for the sexual gratification of men."

NOW is intentionally missing the intended humor, but they are right in the narrow wording they chose - no woman (or man) wants to see Fluke ever again, especially not unclothed. They're also right that Limbaugh was totally unfair to question the morals of a woman who spends thousands of dollars a year on birth control. While at the wholesale condom prices a woman that active should be sensible enough to seek, her claim equates to nearly a hundred encounters per day, it's possible that she's financially reckless and spending that much on as few as ten sessions daily. She's a parasite, but if her local WalMart is getting the money, she's not a prostitute.

NOW defended a serial rapist in the White House because he supported abortion on demand.

NOW defended a serial workplace sexual harasser in the White House because he supported abortion on demand.

NOW defended an administration that used the Nuts and Sluts attack strategy against sexual abuse/assault/harassment accusers because Clinton supported abortion on demand.

NOW is NOT pro-woman. They are pro-abortion and anti-choice.

Really! Pass the Popcorn!!!! YES...NOW is composed of the “haters”——they hate men and hate God and hate the fact that they have to give birth if children are to exist—the future.

They hate the Design of Man and Woman by God. (Marxists in their shriveled souls to destroy the Natural Family—so they can control the minds of all children who will not be connected to a loving mother and father who form their Christian worldview. They learn to hate men and God and become dependent on government handouts with no father in the home. Those kids grow up populating prisons and gangs in the search for God the Father).

They are trying to destroy the natures of both women and men-—which has destroyed—literally—millions of children.

NOW is the most illogical and evil communist group, along with the communist homosexual radicals. Their reason to live—is to destroy the family unit which destroys the children—the building block of civil societies—so government gets overloaded with useful idiots who collapse the system.

Yeah, it was gone the minute they began celebrating their "Love-Your-Body" Day, which is an orgy of wearing sweat pants and eating "comfort food" while exercising all-day hate against thinner women who know how to wear makeup.

So is she admitting that Fluke has a sex tape out there? Maybe Fluke mad a sex tape for the gratification for Lesbians?

NOW has long ago proved themselves to be a bunch of disingenuous harpies that don't give a flip about women unless they agree with their liberal propaganda. You never hear a peep out of them when it comes to women being abused in the name of Islam. As much as the thought of Ms. Fluke procreating is a revolting thought, I don't want to pay for her birth control. She came across as a whore who can't control her bodily urges with her testimony. NOW can get back to me when they go after Maher and try to get him kicked off whatever company employs him. They are just a sham leftist organization.

As a conservative woman, I would like to point out that on this issue, like all issues, this woman does not speak for me. Rush is absolutely right and if I had facebook, I'd be a Rush babe.

Well, to be fair, most women show up to their meetings in pairs so it’s killing two birds with one stone. It’s a meeting and it’s date night all wrapped up into one.
