Huh. It Is a Mystery.

3 Feb

Anybody have any idea why the majority of reporting in the “mainstream media” (how I hate that term) fails to mention that the Senior Vice President for Public Policy at Susan G. Komen is adamantly anti-choice? Their initial stance wasn’t just “caving into pressure”–it was evidence of rot from within.

What the fuck kind of “women’s health” organization hires a policy director who is, like, you know, anti-women’s health??? And why is SGK’s backpedaling not being reported for the fucking horeshit that it is?

Must be because all those elitist librul Islamofascist baby-hating feminazis run everything.

    Many people have that reaction to Ari Fleischer.

    It annoyed the hell out of me that Maddow did a piece on Komen yesterday and never once mentioned this fact. She’s smarter than that and I had thought she’s better than that.

    They’ve really opened a hornets’ nest. I used to give to co-workers who were participating in the 3-day walk, but now I’ll tell anyone soliciting funds about the right-wing agenda, and the ridiculous “buckets of fried chicken for the cure” and the pink pistols, and all that other bullshit.

    I think Komen’s done… it’s almost a good thing that they hired such a rabid teabagger, and had the mask pulled off in such spectacular fashion.

    There was also that decision to stop funding any breast-cancer research that involved stem cells.

    I recommend Dagmar Herzog, Sex in Crisis.

    While SiC never mentions the Susan G. Komen organization in particular, it has a lot about how “cultural conservatives” (speaking of odious terms!) started getting government aid as essentially state-funded financing of rightwing propaganda or coercion (especially in regards to US foreign aid to Africa).

    In other words, a lot of the increase in foreign aid to Africa in the early ’00s was a scam to launder US aid through rightwing NGOs pushing their misogynist agenda on African countries struggling with expensive public health issues. It had little favorable impact on the needs of Africans. I believe Barbara Ehrenreich mentions this aspect of SGK-RFC in Bright Sided, but not certain.
