As we all know by now, there was outrage among feminists about CBS allowing the Tim Tebow ad to air during the Superbowl. But that was only the beginning. After the National Organization of Indoctrinated Women saw the commercial and realized it was actually benign, they needed something else to complain about – so they came up with this outlandish notion:

“I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she said. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself,” says NOW President Terry O’Neil.

That O’Neil is a “survivor of domestic violence,” or so she says, is no small matter. The most significant thread of feminist thought is victimhood: a simple study into the backgrounds of all feminists will tell you this is true. Almost all of them have pasts that include violence, abuse, alcoholism, or neglect on the part of a parent or spouse; and they are under the impression this somehow makes them unique — as if they’re in a special position to help women because of their experiences.

The truth is, these women can never help other women because they have not found a way to move forward with their lives. Instead they hold on to past grievances and encourage other women to do the same. Moreover, they package their policies – such as the Violence against Women Act (VAWA) – in such a way that people feel compelled to sympathize. After all, who would be against the Violence against Women Act?

But here’s what many Americans don’t know. Under the VAWA, domestic acts don’t have to be violent to be punished under the definition of domestic violence. Name-calling, put-downs, shouting, negative looks or gestures, ignoring opinions, or constant criticizing can all be legally labeled domestic violence. Under a definition this broad, it’s easy to see why Ms. O’Neil thinks pushing one’s mother aside in a joking manner is evidence of violence. (Feminists have no sense of humor, you know.)

VAWA also asserts that domestic violence is a crime, yet family courts often adjudicate domestic violence as a civil, rather than a criminal, matter. This means the accused is not innocent until proven guilty but is presumed guilty. Due process rights, such as trial by jury and the right of free counsel to poor defendants, are regularly denied, and false accusations are not covered by perjury law. VAWA provides funding for legal representation for accusers but not for defendants. Evidence is irrelevant; hearsay is admissible; defendants have no right to confront their accusers; and forced confessions are a common feature.

Bottom line: As Bernard Goldberg said on The Factor last night,

“These feminists are not serious people. You cannot take them seriously anymore.”
