No Feminist Love for Palin: NOW Endorses Obama-Biden

There are 4373 comments on the www.lesbiatopia.com story from Sep 17, 2008, titled No Feminist Love for Palin: NOW Endorses Obama-Biden. In it, www.lesbiatopia.com reports that:

There has been much debate lately on the issue of feminism, especially since the nomination of Sarah Palin to the Republican vice-presidential ticket. Just released yesterday was a statement from one of the National Organization of Women announcing their decision to endorse Sen. Barack Obama for President of the United States. The NOW PAC reviewed Sen. Obama's record and public statements on issues that disproportionately affect the women of this nation and believe he is the best candidate regarding his policies and his commitment to women's equality. This is the true meaning of feminism. It is supporting a candidate who believes in the social, political, and economic equality of men and women.

Dear leftist,Nazi,scum. You dont know me and have no basis for calling me a racist other than the fact that I wont vote for your guy.
I would vote for another candidate of any color if they had a platform that was close to what I believe in. now. Why dont you shut your pie hole and have a nice glass of Koolaid.
No, you're a racist because you're focused on nothing but race. There are others on here that are Pro-McCain that aren't focused on race. You're the racist. They aren't.

Sure it is, but so is the rhetoric that someone listens to for 20 years. I teach teenagers. They are having sex (and learning about it in school, so why not try it?) Thanks to both the Clinton White House and the Hollywood set, sex is normal and now even Christian children have to face it head on. At least the Palin's are not being hypocritical and demanding an abortion.
That is what NOW hates about her...she is living her beliefs.
Yeah - also a really bad thing to teach good-touch, bad-touch to kindergarten children.@@

Look - you teach teenagers - I raise 'em. And I've got news for you...sex IS normal - and what's more? They know where babies come from long before they address it in health class. For generations, children have been curious about where babies come from. You think kids on farms were kept in the dark about such matters? You want to teach yours about storks and cabbage patches, be my guest. Me, I'm all about being honest with my kids and answering their questions directly.

Sex ed in schools - bad idea? Depends on the curriculum. I have yet to come across a school that encourages kids to have sex. In addition to them learning about hormones, the consequences of teen pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases - the parent's should also be teaching their kids about self-control.

So much easier, however, to blame education for 'your' child's lack of self-control and discernment than 'your' lapse in addressing the 'ugliness' and 'unnatural' concept of sex, at home. See - the trick is to actually BE THERE FOR YOUR CHILDREN. I know, I know. But I think that's far, far more Christian and in line with the 'family values' way of living than to dump your kids on someone else for a job that'll take you away from them for all their waking hours.

Long list there fella! You posted this earlier; we saw it the first time.
A much more succinct explanation will suffice as to why conservatives vote Republican.
"I'm voting Republican because I'm a hate-mongering bigot. And I'm proud of it!"
I vote Republican because I work hard for the money I earn and would love to be more active in Philanthropic ventures...too bad Congress taxes me to death and then chooses those Philanthropies for me.

I vote Republican because I don't naively think that talking to terrorists will work. I hate the idea of war - especially since my father and brother are in the miltary, but we are not a neutral country and we are targets; we have to protect ourselves.

I vote Republican because I believe that criminals have lived their lives, made bad/fatal choices and do not deserve to be on the streets. Infants, however, do!!!!!!!

I vote Republican because Socialist countries are not free countries and we will have our freedoms revoked should the Democrats have their way.

Neither party is perfect, but at least the Republicans respect the individual to make his/her own decisions and to use his/her own money and assets for themselves.

Palin appears to disagree with McCain on sex education

Ron Edmonds / Associated Press

Even before Palin released a statement about her daughter Bristol, left, teen pregnancy had been in the spotlight. The teen birth rate showed an increase this year after 15 years of decline.
The Republican vice presidential candidate says students should be taught about condoms. Her running mate -- and the party platform -- disagree.

"I'm pro-contraception, and I think kids who may not hear about it at home should hear about it in other avenues," she said during a debate in Juneau.

Palin is no feminist, not by any stretch of the imagination.
She's a christian wacko and was chosen to shore up the christian wacko base.
Wow...if you think SHE is a wacko, you will have a heart attack when you find out what our Founding Fathers believed...not to mention 95 percent of our Presidents.

If Abraham Lincoln were running today, you would say the same of him.

As for Obama's middle name, McCain's middle name is adulterer since he immediately cheated on his wife when he returned from the war and found out that she had been in a disfiguring accident and was fat, maimed and ugly (in his eyes). The Reagans certainly never got over it.

Since we're on the subject of names, let's not forget John McCain's favorite name for his 2nd wife Cindy.( I'd mention it but topix has decency standards)

You can't, because she is.
And obviously, it doesn't work. Her own daughter is proof of this.
I've seen girls get pregnant because no one gave them a good eduacation. One girl actually BELIEVED her boyfriend when he said, "I'm too big for a condom."
Really? Because you can slide one up your arm all the way to the elbow. Too big, huh?
Education is NOT a laughing matter. And the consequences for a lack of education can be severe.
Look, we get it. You are going to vote for the DOG OF ISLAM. its OK. You are the reason I did not send my kids to public school. If you want to teach your kids to bang at five years old fine.
I dont need to know about you wearing a rubber on your arm up to the elbow and what you do with it.

So, check out her records as mayor and Governor. Go to youtube and watch her spots with Glenn Beck and others. The debate is this Friday night. Listen to what she has to say. She is strong and smart and she has made her opinions clear, even the ones that put her at odds with her running mate. As far as saying what the men want her to....I doubt it, but at least she isn't opening mouth and inserting both feet, like Biden.
I did check her records.
I said I wanted to hear her speak on her own...not words written on a paper.
Her voice.. Guys and Gals (What she says)
Let me tell you what I feel, what I believe in and what I want to do for this country.
Nobody around to sway her
Just Sarah and her brain.....
Really is that too much to ask for a possible President.
I don't need to see her talking to Beck, or Gibson..Just her in front of the American people....
You are not afraid she can't do it...are you?

Palin McCain fall so short on the extent on protecting the unborn child from all of you murderers. I will vote for the candidate that truly understands the potential for human life. Over 50% of all fertilized eggs are aborted by the womans body, most viable (albiet with Down's syndrome or other special needs), some not. To truly save each and everyone of these beautiful beings we need to be ultrasounding every woman post intersourse to see if she is indeed pregnant, harvest the embryo and do everything we can to bring that child to term. We need our hospitals and scientists to forget all this liberal propaganda about global warming and focus on the millions of naturally occurring abortions, before a plague is sent down upon us by God herself. We have the technology to do this so by not doing it, it must be a sin.

You are right...unfortunately, the feminazis are the ones who are running NOW and other organizations like it.
I'm not even sure why anyone cares who NOW endorses. I certainly don't. In fact, I don't care who ANYONE endorses. I'll vote for who I believe to be the better candidate, based on my own views.

I mean, really, E, is NOW's endorsement going to affect your vote?

We shouldn't be.

The leadership seems to be convinced that we have no choice, that the entirety of America's financial system will collapse under the weight of stupid lenders giving money to unqualified buyers. Not being a financial expert at the national level myself, I don't know if they're right or they're wrong. They are going to do what they are going to do. I don't have to like it, and I don't have to agree with it - and I don't.

But we also need to put the blame for the climate being the way it is squarely where it belongs - which is not on partisan politics, but on greedy bankers and irresponsible borrowers.

And why do you still care anyway? Obama and Clinton are 95% in agreement on the issues and polar opposites with McCain on 95% of the issues. Are you that much of a spoiled sport that you'll cut off your nose to spite your face?????
I was responding to the question of whether Obama being black helped or hurt his chances. It helped him.

I favor McCain in this election but I'm disappointed that both Obama and McCain support Bush' open borders policy.

Family values are not on the ballot. This is a cheap shot aimed at attempting to throw the republicans off balance with personal attacks instead of bringing intelligent arguementation.
Nothing new...pure Saul Alinsky tactics.
Talking about family values throws off republicans. I love when it comes straight from the horse's mouth.

And yes - family values of the person being elected are certainly an issue for me.

But I understand how it could throw you off. If you can't spin it, ignore it, right?
