Not since George W. Bush last got to nominate a Supreme Court Justice have feminist and liberal panties bunched so collectively and so tightly. The trigger for this epidemic of the vapors? The announcement that Focus on the Family had purchased 30 seconds of Super Bowl spot time.
A group called The Women’s Media Center, with backing from NOW, hyperventilated: “An ad that uses sports to divide rather than to unite has no place in the biggest national sports event of the year – an event designed to bring Americans together.”
I was gratified to learn of these feminist groups’ previously hidden appreciation for the unifying pageantry of football and the telecast of it’s greatest championship. I wonder if NOW president Terry O’Neill thinks the Colts should have blitzed Breese more in third down situations. I also wonder which commercials the leaders of NOW enjoyed more, the bimbo-laden Go Daddy spots or the jiggly beer ads.
Feminist lawyer Gloria Allred launched her own preemptive strike on Mrs. Tebow–calling Pam Tebow a liar via the Huffington Post. Hilariously, it only took about two minutes of rudimentary Googling for a HuffPo commenter to turn up a New York Times article that destroyed Ms. Allred’s theory.
Here’s the ad that had Planned Parenthood types all over the nation rending their garments and wailing:
The ad, and the controversy it sparked, speak volumes about the various parties. It exposes the huge gap between the wholesome reality and the monstrous way liberals view Focus on the Family and Dr. Dobson. And it should once and for all kill the myth that feminist organizations are “pro-choice” rather than pro-abortion.
When one woman, in gentle, joyful terms, wanted to tell the world how happy she was she chose life, groups like NOW did their best to have her silenced.
