Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Yesterday’s NOW

National Organization for Women, NOW, Toni Van Pelt,, sexual assault, hate speech, Southern Poverty Law Center

Once upon a time, the National Organization for Women winked to President Bill Clinton and scorned his accusers Paula Jones, Juanita Broaddrick, and others. This all came back to me while discussing powerful men sexually harassing and assaulting women, at Townhall yesterday.

NOW’s current president, Toni Van Pelt, spoke with the Washington Examiner regarding recent allegations against liberal Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). Not to be outdone by the group’s partisan or pusillanimous past (take your pick), Van Pelt offered, “We could ask all of the men in Congress to resign, is that what you’re asking me?”

She added, going all in, “You know that mostly all men do this kind of thing to women. It’s like saying there’s a good airline or a good bank, saying there’s some entity out there that is not sexist.”

Say what?

“That’s gender bias and stereotyping of the most egregious kind,” writes ethicist Jack Marshall at his Ethics Alarms blog. “I just expect the champions of equality, fairness, mutual respect and civility to believe in and live by the principles they claim so indignantly and self-righteously to be fighting for.”

And not scapegoat all men.

Yet NOW’s Madame Defarge declares: “They all should resign, every man in every industry.”

Marshall knows how to categorize such talk: “Under the definition of ‘hate group’ used by the Southern Poverty Law Center — ‘any group with beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people’ — Toni Van Pelt, speaking on behalf of her organization, has demonstrated that the National Organization for Women belongs on its list.”

Blaming an entire sex, while excusing the actual abusers . . . should end NOW.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

  1. John F Brennan says:

    Yes, NOW is more than willing to throw Franken and many others under the bus on less transgressions or just allegations.  This is especially true of President Trump who would go to the first of the line for resignation and replacement once the policy is “agreed”upon.
    Beware, this is not principle, it is revolution and the replacements will have NOW’s own and special agenda. 

  2. Paul Jacob says:

    But again NOW’s actions show less allegiance to their philosophy, such that it is, than the Democrat Party and its politicians.

  3. Drifter says:

    Why is she being listened to as though she had some kind of credibility? There is nothing wrong with her that a massive dose of laxitive could not cure…

  4. Steve Trinward says:

    hate speech finds a new low

  5. Rocketman says:

    NOW has never been a forum of women seeking equality but a group of females that seek to use the fact that they are females to advance their proto-communist beliefs. If they were really about women’s rights then they would have gone after the Clintons back in the 80’s just as much as they are going after Roy Moore today.
