Democrats and Whores

It’s official.  The National Organization for Women would endorse a signpost as long as it ran as a Democrat:

Jerry Brown announced he has received the endorsement of the National Organization for Women, less than 24 hours after the emergence of a recorded message in which Brown can be heard in a conversation with advisors in which someone calls Whitman a “whore.” Coincidence? You be the judge.

The “whore” thing was not said in public and I’m disinclined to scream blue murder every time someone says something stupid or mean in private conversation. But the timing couldn’t be worse for NOW; you know they’d be shrieking the skies down if the parties were reversed.

“Meg Whitman is a pro-choice woman who was ranked among the world’s most accomplished women in business,” said Whitman campaign manager Jillian Hasner. “She’s now running to become the first woman governor in California’s history, and on the same day that it’s reported Jerry Brown’s campaign called her a ‘whore,’ the National Organization [for] Women endorses him. It’s official: NOW is a partisan organization.”

It’s been fairly obvious for some time that NOW’s interests lie in feminizing as many liberal issues as they possibly can.  They quite literally try to cast every issue—welfare, healthcare, deficits, war—as a women’s issue in an effort to paint conservatism as an inherently misogynistic philosophy.  This is partially because of their view that women, even more than men, are helpless victims who could not find the way out of their driveway if it weren’t for the benevolent hand of a paternal government.  But it’s also because they are simply partisans—interested in advancing the cause of political party, not a set of issues. They never endorse conservative women, no matter how accomplished.  And they never hold liberal Democrats accountable for their actions, no matter how vile (*cough* Ted Kennedy *cough* Bill Clinton).

What are they, other the Democrat Party Ladies’ Auxiliary?  There was a time when NOW served a useful purpose, when sexism was so deeply entrenched in our society.  That time has passed and what’s left is a purely and cynically partisan organization fouling the legacy of the crusaders who preceded them.
