Where is the National Organization of Women?
There must be some misunderstanding.
Here is a story you didn't hear about on National Public Radio.
(Hat tip to Atlas Shrugs)
As these stories continue to mount from Florida to St Louis, to Buffalo, to Phoenix, to El Cajon, to Houston, and other places, you might wonder, "Where is the National Organization of Women or the Feminist Majority?"
The truth is that they won't touch these stories with a ten-foot pole, just as gay rights groups in the US won't talk about what happens to gays in Iran. It is as if they don't exist.
They ignore these stories because to do otherwise would be politically incorrect. It would be "intolerant". And yet, in ignoring these incidents, they are condemning a certain segment of our population to more and more of these tragedies. It means that a certain segment of our population is not receiving the same level of protection as the rest of us. Yes, the law will punish, but public outrage is also necessary if we are going to put a stop to it. Outrage cannot come if the knowledge doesn't exist.
Is that tolerant?
