Feminists: More important to hate America than help women.

[quote]The condition of Muslim women may be the most pressing women issue of our age, but for many contemporary American feminists it is not a high priority. Why not?

The reasons are rooted in the worldview of women who shape the concerns and activities of contemporary American feminism. That worldview is - by tendency and sometime emphatically- antagonistic toward the United States, agnostic about marriage and family, hostile toward traditional religion and wary of femininity.[/quote]

Not that I like defending NOW and the like... but why should a "National" organization focus on anything but issues within their own country?

Because the "change the world" types and "women's rights" are not fettered by such artificial boundaries as those created by white males.

It is ironic that many if not most liberals who are opposed to America's position in the war on terror, would be the first to go under the sword in an Islamic state. Gays, feminists, etc, would be eliminated in ruthless fashion reminisent of Hitler's Germany.

Yet, these same lefty kooks (and I would include most, so called, feminists in that boat) rush to blame America for all things evil in the world. Furthermore, they believe traditional Judeo-Christian values are equivalent with those practiced by the Taliban. When Rosie compared evangelical Christians to radical Islamists, she was speaking for many in that camp, I believe.

Marlin...come on man. The majority of the US are ready to end this "war on terror". What is pathetic is lumpin all of one group and saying they blame America and hate america...blah, blah, blah.

I am a feminist...and I have many views on many things.

Charlotte, come on woman, the majority in this country is turned off by what is happening in Iraq - not the overall war on terror. Most thinking people understand that we are in a war against Islamofacists. It is indeed true that many so called feminists seemingly care more about electing liberals than what our enemies are doing.

I remember Harvard University invited a prominent Iranian (member of the current Iranian government) to speak a couple of years back. No out cry from liberal gays or feminists. However, when former College President, Larry Summers dared to suggest that men and women might have different innate abilities in Math and Science the feminazi's were in an uproar.

You know what, Summers was only stating the truth (partial anyway.) Suggesting that men and women are different and not always equal in every area (true) is more of a crime to these harpies than keeping women bare-foot, pregnant and under Sharia law.

Of course not, but I don't think the ones that are here are suffering a whole lot of "lashings, stonings, and honor killings".

Marlin...the polling of Iraq war support shows the majority of US do not currently support the war. As for how middle east treats women...you can also look at Saudi Arabia...and we are very close with that country, right?

You could ask them, but a visit to the NOW website shows a whole section on "Global Feminism":

[url=http://www.now.org/nnt/fall-2006/juarez.html] NOW Continues Campaign to End Violence Against Women in Juarez, Mexico[/url]

[url=http://www.now.org/nnt/summer-2006/venezuela.html] NOW Co-Sponsors International Women's Day Delegation to Venezuela[/url]

They had some stuff about Iraqi women two or three years ago when supporting the war was unavoidable, but they have pretty much dropped that when it looked like the war was going to be a political liability for the Republicans.

Now they hope the US loses, and have no problem with the Iraqi women left to the radicals:

[url=http://www.now.org/press/01-07/01-24a.html] NOW Calls for End to War in Iraq, Ready to March on Saturday [/url]

They leave no doubt about their true agenda.

Well, as I've said before, Tom - I consider myself a feminist, and I've never even bothered to read the NOW website, let alone join up. Some of us don't need other people to tell us what we think.

Now, go ahead and call me a lefty kook.
:D

Well, Charlotte's title as the chief deflector on AMG is safe as best I can tell.

Oops...I was going to say more, but I won't.

And rest assured, I love women as well...CENSORED.

Generally speaking - Conservative women are better looking, too, in my opinion.

How do you know about lashings and "traditional surgery" done in the home? They are second class citizens unless they have jumped ship and assimilated into American society.

I wouldn't be too sure about honor killings either in larger cities.

One minor issue with that statement Charlotte..... The other side doesn't appear ready to end the terror war on us....

You can bet if they do happen, they happen in "Democratic strongholds"

I don't know about what's being done in the home, but I try not to make suppositions without some sign of evidence first. There are too many concrete, well-defined problems in the world to waste time proposing new ones.

The Loony-Left hatred for America is displayed with monotonous regularity in letters to the editor, demonstrations, and in the halls of academe. Their hatred is easily explained. Ninety percent of leftist doctrine, beginning with Marx, has been based on condemnation of capitalist society, relatively little on the design and delights of socialism. The ignominous collapse of both Democratic and totalitarian socialism has left them with nothign but hatred. Look for a bibilography of Leftist anaysis of the failures of socialism and you find nothing.

The liberal relationship with the is peculiar. They rarely seem ready to defend the country that shelters them in security and prosperity from their attacks, no matter how bizarre.

E.g., when Prof. Ward Churchill rages that he wants the United States out of North America and off the planet Earth, conservatives react with anger or contempt. Liberals keep quiet. When he gets invitations to lecture at colleges, Liberals keep quiet. It's one thing to stand on the right of free speech, but to offer no objections to demented expressions of hatred is quite another.

Both sides have their loons...both the right and left extremists seem to hate what this country was founded on.

Yes, Charlotte, both sides have their loons. Some palaeocons see the US with its pop culture, poliitical correctness, and therapeutic government as a disaster

The difference is that the righ-wing loons get regularly refusted and condemned by more balanced conservatives, while moderate liberals are rarely heard to criticize the loony left. This is not an unimportant difference.

I don't agree. Many very conservative loons are supported by the conservatives. There are fringe characters both sides....

Well, CHARLOTTE, I gave you one example. Here's another. Harry Bridges was the leader of the International Longshoreman's and Warehouseman's Union, which controlled the San Francisco docks. The Roosevelt and Truman administrations tried to deport on him on ground that he had lied about his communist affiliation on his immigration papers. He opposed the re-election of FDR in 1940 because that libeal Democrat supported Great Britain while Moscow denounced the war as imperialist. He tunred 180 degrees on June 22, 1940. The CIO-AFL expelled ILWU for its communist ties. The opening of the Soviet archives has revealed that he was a member of the CPUSA Central Committee, with Kremlin approval.

In 2001 Nancy Pelosi took to the Congressional Record to celebrate the anniversary of his death. I quote: "Harry Bridges [was] arguably the most significant labor leader of the twentieth century...beloved by the workers of this Nation. ILWU was "the most progressive union of the time..."blah, blah, blah.

Now, its your turn to give me a comparable example.

Exactly who are these "right wing loons"?

The founding fathers were "right wing extremists".
