    Bill Maher, George Lopez and the War on Women -- Why Are Attacks on Conservative Women Given Just a Shrug?

    It takes a really weak, insecure, and spineless man to attack a woman on television. It takes an even weaker “feminist” movement to play down such attacks.

    In a recent episode of “Somebody, Please Notice Me,” also known as “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO, the show’s host may have hit rock bottom with his latest rhetorical bomb by referring to Sarah Palin with a vulgarity exceedingly offensive to women. Far more noticeable, and certainly more noteworthy, was the backhanded “defense”of Palin from radical feminists and their clearly misnamed organizations.

    National Organization for Women communications director Lisa Bennett, after days of silence, sounded more as if she didn’t want to be bothered: “Sorry, but we can’t defend Palin or even Hillary Clinton from every sexist insult hurled at them in the media.”

    Several weeks ago, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews attacked Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) with another derogatory slur in reference to a harmless geographical gaffe she made about American history. Only crickets from the radical feminists. (A few weeks later Matthews found himself geographically-challenged when he said the Panama Canal was in Egypt.)

    it is not sexism

    conservatives mock and ridicule liberals (m and f)
    and liberals mock and ridicule conservatives (m and f)

    as long as conservatives consider it fair game to attack liberal and democratic females then it is perfectly fair for liberals to attack conservative and republican females


    it is COMPLETELY FUCKIN STUPID for conservatives to think they can mock liberal and democratic females but it is SEXISM when liberals do it conservative/republican females

    how many ways must i try to explain this to you?

    the very fact that fox news is crying foul is just evidence of what
    a. lying hypocritical scumbags they are
    or
    b. what stupid hypocritical morons they are


    i've seen cons on fox news attack liberal/democratic women

    and yet they complain and call it liberal sexism when liberals give it back to cons?

    grow up moron

    Liberals are known to attack their own. Infact...Liberals are more likely to attack most of the women they don't like with sexual rhetoric. All you have to do is see the way the Liberal media dealt with Hillary Clinton if you need examples.

    Why don't you post these "examples"? Show me a single "mainstream media" article that attacked Hillary Clinton based on her sex?

    This is as tired and retarded as people who call any criticism of Obama "racism".

    Its not about the liberal media making sexist attacks on conservative women. Its about the liberal media screaming sexism when a conservative attacks a liberal women but then turns around and does the same thing.

    This is true when the liberal media calls a conservative a racist, yet when they say something that may be racist, they get a pass

    Both Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton commented on the sexism in the MSM during the campaign.


    from Hillary herself...

    Mrs Clinton also claimed for the first time last week that she had encountered "sexist" treatment during the campaign, and her husband spoke of "gender bias".

    Mrs Clinton blamed the media rather than the Obama campaign, saying: "It's been deeply offensive to millions of women."

    Obama has lost women 'with sexist campaign'

    Geraldine Ferraro, the only woman to run on a major party presidential ticket and a supporter of Hillary Clinton, has accused Barack Obama of conducting a "terribly sexist" campaign.

    Snip...

    Miss Ferraro saved her greatest ire for the media, however, where male pundits have regularly attacked Mrs Clinton.

    One compared her to the obsessive Glenn Close character in Fatal Attraction.

    "Obama wouldn't have been successful in pursuing the sexist line if the media had not picked it up," she said. "The fact that she's been so brutally handled by the media has driven me nuts. People try and dismiss this as sour grapes from sore losers, but that's nonsense."
