...a sweatshop of moxie

Where are you NOW?

Tell me, where is the National Organisation For Women today as a woman in Buffalo, New York lies dead, BEHEADED, by her husband?

Silence, utter silence.

Not a word to condemn this most brutal act of violence against a woman's person -- perhaps the most unforgiveable moment of cowardice I have ever seen by feminist groups and leaders in my entire life in the West.

Look closely at this woman, standing next to her husband in "better times", who eventually killed her (I wonder just good the times were under the surface). Her name was Aasiya Hassan.

This is the face of your friend next door: an intelligent, well-dressed, modern woman like any other. Her death should be covered and spoken about with as much alacrity as Nicole Brown Simpson, another victim of a senseless slaughter with overtones of domestic violence.

I suppose NOW's front page at the time of writing says it all:

Singer Rihanna's assault consisted of a despicable battering by her boyfriend, leaving her with a swollen face, and she gets first mention. Aasiya Hassan's HEAD was severed off her ENTIRE body by her husband for daring to request a divorce, and is this worthy of comment by NOW? No.

My God, what is wrong with these people?

I'm sick and tired of these organisations and groups who adhere to a purely liberal ideological line, using women as their fulcrum, championing and ignoring women according to their whims.

All because they are scared witless that if they wade into anything Islamic, the violence meted out to the late Mrs. Hassan will somehow be visited on their person.

This is America. You have freedom of speech, and your political credo commands you to defend the most vulnerable amongst us, which most certainly includes women who are victims of oppressive husbands.

Speak up. Speak loudly. Make sure it doesn't happen to another woman again in America!

  • This is a very important topic for me, guys, so please forgive me if it stands alone today on Sundries.

  • I'm with you on this one--the mockery that groups like NOW call "feminism" really chaps my ass too.

    Where are you NOW?

    Is precisely the question that's been asked and never answered regarding Bill Clinton and the time he spent sexually assaulting women. When the accused assaulter is Joe Schmoe, he's an enemy of society, when the assaulter is politically useful or part of a protected class, they ignore it or pull out the "nuts and sluts" offensive.

    Another interesting take I've read on this case is that where there has been reporting, the case is being framed as "simply" (my word) domestic abuse not the logical outcome of an ideology which treats women as chattel.

    So, where is NOW? Sitting in DC counting their donations.

  • NOWhere to be found...sad...

    What did you expect from these bunch of racists? Condemnation of a non-westerner?? Never. They don't think anyone outside the "First World"(even if they live here and but they are not judeo-christian) should be held accountable for their actions because "they can't help it"...blah...

  • Where are they?

    Some place safe, I imagine.

    Exactly. They felt safe threatening their own males, but when the threat is real and foreign, they shrink like violets.

  • Silence...as usual.

    As far as this woman is concerned, I do hope she is some place safe. She has more courage in her little pinky toe than all of the members of NOW combined.
