She is pro life and must be destroyed !!!

 Here is the photo of Bachman causing the stir. Actually I have not ever seen a bad photo of her. To the right is the writer of the article and the one who picked out the photo. This is her file photo and quite frankly she looks hung over. I would retake that photo if I were her. But on to National Organization for Women (NOW) being shamed into making a lukewarm statement on her behalf. They have been criticized for remaining silent in the past as other conservative women have been routinely mocked.....Sarah Palin, Meg Whitman etc...... you can almost see their gritted teeth as they give the statement. They feel free to add that it is their goal to defeat Bachman but since she is of  their gender they need to squeak up when she is unfairly attacked. As one commenter stated, I thought they were to defend and uphold the rights of all women not just pro abortion women.  Another commenter made an excellent point...."
"NOW is a non-profit, tax- exempt membership organization working politically and legislatively to ... This status should be revoked. The tax payers are funding this organization that is a political operative of the democratic party. Please file a complaint with the IRS."

Just to be fair to all parties, I found a pix of Terry O'Neill. I never take a good pix myself so I am not commenting. She looks kind of angry but hey she is advocating for abortion....not a loving moment so let's give her a pass on that. I can almost hear her saying.... pro life women must be destroyed.... she kind of looks like the queen of rage.

Monday, the National Organization for Women (NOW) spoke out against Newsweek’s most recent cover, which features an extreme close-up of Michele Bachmann and the title “The Queen of Rage.”

“It’s sexist,” NOW president Terry O’Neill told TheDC. “Casting her in that expression and then adding ‘The Queen of Rage’ I think [it is]. Gloria Steinem has a very simple test: If this were done to a man or would it ever be done to a man – has it ever been done to a man? Surely this has never been done to a man.”
Who has ever called a man ‘The King of Rage?’ Basically what Newsweek magazine – and this is important, what Newsweek magazine, not a blog, Newsweek magazine – what they are saying of a woman who is a serious contender for President of the United States of America…They are basically casting her as a nut job,” O’Neill said. “The ‘Queen of Rage’ is something you apply to wrestlers or somebody who is crazy. They didn’t even do this to Howard Dean when he had his famous scream.” NOW is diametrically opposed to Bachmann on practically every political issue. Bachmann is pro-life, NOW is pro-choice. Bachmann wants to make significant cuts to entitlements, while NOW it pushing to protect Social Security and Medicare. The list is practically infinite. Nevertheless, NOW is rallying to her side for all women in politics.
“The main reason why we would stand up for Michele Bachmann and defend her against these kind of misogynistic attacks is we want women to run for office. Of course my job is to defeat Michele Bachmann and I intend to do so. But good women will not run for office if Newsweek magazine can do this to such a prominent politician and get away with it.”
