What Goes On at a NOW Convention?

A reporter named Kayla Westbrook recently attended a conference of the National Organization for Women, called NOW, in Tampa, Florida, and she published her observations in National Review Online. She discovered that NOW doesn't promote women, but uses women as a cover for a radical progressive agenda. Those who have been listening to my broadcasts already know that, but it was some kind of revelation to this reporter, so I'll share her discoveries with you.

The reporter said every workshop she attended engaged in lambasting conservatives. Speakers joked about "right-wing extremists." The participants chanted in support of abortion, cheered when anyone announced she was gay or had had an abortion, and hissed at the mention of Michele Bachmann's name. In one panel, women were taught to sue their employers, whom they called "old white men," over every minor or trivial offense. If you don't have a case, the attorney on the panel advised, "Don't worry, we can get very creative." And every workshop included an exhortation to get out the vote for Obama and the Democrats in 2012 in order to get rid of the "tea-partiers."

Just outside the Grand Ballroom, friends of NOW were allowed to have booths distributing their materials. One booth was selling the Communist Manifesto along with articles entitled "Education for Socialists" and " Socialism: Utopian and Scientific."

The reporter concluded her article by asking, "What in the world does this stuff have to do with empowering women?" If you would read my book called The Flipside of Feminism, you would know that feminism has never been about empowering women; feminism is about teaching American women they are victims of the patriarchy and that women can never be successful in our patriarchal society. The only thing the feminists want to empower is the media so they can spread their anti-male propaganda.
