My Challenge to Ariana Huffington and the Huffington Post...
Women In The Politics, What Women Want and Ariana Huffington's Cash Cow
Right, that would be Bill Maher......
There was a real good show on C-Span this past weekend about women in politics and how women are viewed and treated by the media.
As I have written many times before I really have a problem with Bill Maher and his treatment of Sarah Palin.
While I definitely do not agree with Sarah Palin politically and I do find some of her statements about people very offensive, as well, I am particularly offended by the statements of Bill Maher during the run up to our recent presidential election.
Bill Maher donated a cool one mill to the dems giving him the self-proclaimed right to become a spokesman for the democratic party......a big mistake as far a I am concerned.
I would like every democrat and republican to know that Bill Maher does not speak for me as a democrat or represent my views of the democratic party.
Let's start at the top.......Many dems are very religious people and Bill's statements about religion are offensive. We all know there are problems with organized religion but many people find great strength from Jesus, who I consider my friend. I admire any one in any religion for just trying to live right in this world today.
Bill, I love Jesus, I don't have any proof........
But here is what bothers me even more........
Ariana Huffington runs Bill as if he is the Mark Twain of our time. He went to a very ugly and horrible level with his comments about Sarah Palin which takes women in politics and the media back to the dark ages. He tried to cover it up by saying, it's funny, I'm a comedian, I said it in a comedy club....whatever. But, nevertheless, it was all over the media and it represented democrats and many people laughed with him
What will women think if they choose to speak out about politics and risk a career as a public figure? Bill's comments are the same as a bunch of teenagers laughing in a huddle at an easy victim passing by.
Dr Drew and Ariana Huffington are drinking the Kool-Aide....
Right, Bill is popular and everyone is having a good laugh not only at the expense of Sarah Palin but at the expense of women everywhere and women in politics. He went on Dr. Drew and further defended himself and Dr. Drew did not once mention the ill effects of his statements against women. Really, sometimes it seems like Dr. Drew has been affected by popularity in recent stands, as well. Bill Maher humiliated women speaking out politically everywhere but Dr. Drew welcomed him on his show and enjoyed the attention.
The person that is also very detrimental to the advancement of women in politics is Ariana Huffington. Well, it's her newspaper isn't it? Can you really call it that. If you own the newspaper and your name is the name of the newspaper, or perhaps, publication, would be a more accurate term...then I guess you can run anything you want. I am sure Bill Maher makes a lot of money for Ariana Huffington and many people read her paper to hear what clever things he has to say. I imagine Ariana Huffington loves to be on his show and promote herself and her newspaper. Again, she is already successful...I would ask her to think two times before she bashed all women just to make money by letting maher's mouth run wild and unchecked. Apparently Ariana Huffington's platform is that of Bill Maher, humiliating and a step backwards for women or not.
Mr. Maher may want to use President Obama as an example to follow...particulary since he gave his big money to support him...or did he give his big money just to have a platform to support himself and his egomania? President Obama actually spoke out against the ridiculous satements of Rush Limbaugh in a dignified manner. Rush actually had to stop and I also heard it said in local conservative talk radio--we really have to be careful what we say now after Rush. President Obama stood up for women and did not tolerate women being used negatively to further a media persons show. Mr. Maher and his friend Ariana may take a tip from our President about being dignifed and furthering the cause of women in their publications and statements
What was Sarah Palin suppose to do after that horrible comment heard around the world. It was embarrassing..it was embarrasing for all women. Its embarrassing for me to hear and then write a blog. There is no reasonable response or answer. Bill insulted all women and we are just left to take it.
God gave Bill the talent of being truly humorous but he may want to use his talents more carefully--he is already very famous and successful.
Unleashed and out of control..............
I prefer Maher not to represent me as a dem. Both bill and rush trashed women for self-promotion and attention...........they are making a show. They are both making a show and using women as a joke.
I do not like it and I enjoy taking the opportunity to write against it.
