LA National Organization for Women President Condemns New Obama Ad

October 30, 2008

Liberal Gender Traitor and President of the LA Chapter of the National Organization of Women (NOW) Shelly Mandell finds the new Obama ad which features Governor Palin to be offensive:

Shelly Mandell, president of Los Angeles chapter of the National Organization for Women: “I am outraged by the new ad put out by Barack Obama. It is sexist and demeaning to women. These tactics started with Hillary Clinton and continue, growing even more disgusting with Gov. Palin. I was a Hillstar for Hillary and an avid supporter. Trashing two women clearly in a sexist manner in one election is an outrage and must be identified and stopped. There must be consequences. Let female Obama supporters take a good look at this and still believe their candidate supports women’s rights and women’s dignity.”

In addition, several other prominent women are offended by Obama’s blatant sexism:

Prameela Bartholomeusz, DNC Platform Committee Member: “I am once again stunned at the personal and sexist attacks by the Obama campaign against Gov. Palin. This latest ad is sexist and offensive. The Gov. of Alaska has been managing and balancing a budget of $10 billion; I think she knows a bit about economics. Sen. Obama never spoke up against sexism during the primary season, and is not speaking out against misogyny during this phase of the election season — he is contributing to it. I have no confidence that Sen. Obama will fight for women’s issues if elected. This sets women back decades.”

Stephanie Bressler, Ph.D, Hillary Clinton supporter, University of Scranton women and politics professor: “It’s a sexist example of reducing a woman to an object – a wink – and denying her a voice. Her lips are actually moving, but she’s not allowed to be heard.”

Amy Siskind, ambassador for Hillary: “When Senator Hillary Clinton was demeaned and degraded during the Presidential Primary, many of us of, myself included, vowed ‘never again’. The treatment of Governor Palin by both the main stream media, and now the Obama Campaign, shows that the misogyny fest is alive and well in our country. There has been a complete and utter smear job of our fellow citizen, Sarah Palin, who is only trying to serve her country.”

Seriously though, Governor Sarah Palin is the epitome of what feminism has led to. A self-made woman who has balanced her femininity with her respect and has been able to raise a family without sacrificing a career.

Los Angeles National Organization of Women President Endorses Palin

October 5, 2008

Wizbang:

Shelly Mandell, President of NOW LA endorses Palin!  

“America, this is what a FEMINIST looks like!”

“There’s a place in Hell reserved for women who don’t support other women.”

UPDATE: 

Just Shelly Mandell, not LA’s NOW

UPDATE 2:

Hillaryorbust and Gretawire report that this may cause a domino effect:

I am hearing rumblings…apparently the endorsement of Governor Palin (and Senator McCain) by LA’s President of NOW Shelly Mandel is making it ’safe’ for other high profile feminists to endorse McCain/Palin. The thinking is twofold – one; that it is time for a woman and two; that Governor Palin wants to work across party lines… This is a giant change in politics…
What do you think about this?

This is so important. I have spoken to quite a few Democratic women who are upset about Obama and don’t like him, but feel guilty voting Republican. With women like Mandell supporting Palin, it gives permission and a reason for many disaffected female Democrats to vote for the McCain/Palin ticket.

This is important for women seeking equal opportunity in the workplace and so many other aspects that women have been fighting for for so long.  Remember, abolition of Roe v. Wade does NOT make abortion illegal as so many liberals would like you to believe. Abolition of Roe makes abortion a state issue as it was before Roe. No state in the union will illegalize abortion inasmuch as it applies to a mother’s health and rape.
