Jim Quinn: Steinem opposes Palin because Palin "declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to the goddess of feminism"

On his radio show, Jim Quinn claimed that Gloria Steinem opposes Gov. Sarah Palin because Palin "refused the sacrificial right of passage, better known as the Eucharist of the feminist church: abortion. That's right. She declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to the goddess of feminism, even after doctors told her that he was one of those Down syndrome 'throw-aways.' "

On the October 6 broadcast of The War Room, co-host Jim Quinn said of criticism of Gov. Sarah Palin by author, activist, and Ms. magazine co-founder Gloria Steinem: "Palin blew it, you see. She publicly expressed through both word and selfless deed that she values all people during every stage of development from conception to natural death. Most egregiously, she refused the sacrificial right of passage, better known as the Eucharist of the feminist church: abortion. That's right. She declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to the goddess of feminism, even after doctors told her that he was one of those Down syndrome 'throw-aways.' " Quinn later stated: "The reality is, except for those who, like Gloria Steinem, think the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence should've read, 'All women are endowed by Mother Earth with an inalienable right to eat their own young,' Sarah Palin has connected with the average American, especially with women."

Quinn prefaced these remarks by saying, "Not surprisingly, the ultra-liberal and pompously self-styled National Organization for Women has been beating the war-path drums, claiming that Palin is, quote, 'more a conservative man than she is a woman.' " Quinn was presumably referring to a September 11 Politico article that quoted a "spokeswoman for the National Organization for Women" as saying of Palin: "She's more a conservative man than she is a woman on women's issues." An "Editor's note" accompanying the article, which Quinn did not mention, stated that "NOW President Kim Gandy disputes this comment, contending it is inaccurate because it did not come from a spokesperson for the organization and does not reflect NOW's policy or position."

Quinn went on to say: "And Wendy Doniger, a feminist Kool-Aid guzzler at the University of Chicago, wrote in Newsweek that Palin's greatest hypocrisy is her 'pretense that she's a woman.' " He added: "Sorry, gals, Sarah Palin's most definitely a woman. I suppose some of the hate boils down to the fact that the governor is so easy on the eyes? Hmm? That's right. See, Palin is good-looking and that drives most of these feminists, who look a lot more like Ruth Bader Ginsburg than Palin, nuts."

As Media Matters for America noted, Quinn has previously stated: "If you don't agree with the feminist scolds, then you're not a real woman -- even if you are a very feminine working mom." He added, "But even if you're an actual man, never mind a childless feminist who looks like a Bulgarian weightlifter in drag, you're a real woman solely because you nod your head like a windup clapping monkey every time you read the latest editorial from Ms. magazine." Quinn has also repeatedly referred to NOW as the "National Organization for Whores." Additionally, Media Matters documented that Quinn has previously introduced a segment about Sen. Hillary Clinton by playing the song "The Bitch Is Back."

Talkers Magazine lists Quinn & Rose on its "Heavy Hundred" list, which it describes as a list of the "100 most important radio talk show hosts in America." According to the show's website, it airs on 18 radio stations and XM Satellite Radio.

From the October 6 broadcast of Clear Channel's The War Room with Quinn & Rose:

QUINN: To them, see, she's not a real woman, and they've said as much. Just as Clarence Thomas is really just a rich white guy in black face, he's just a misogynistic female impersonator, or, she is, rather. Not surprisingly, the ultra-liberal and pompously self-styled National Organization for Women has been beating the war-path drums, claiming that Palin is, quote, "more a conservative man than she is a woman." And Wendy Doniger, a feminist Kool-Aid guzzler at the University of Chicago, wrote in Newsweek that Palin's greatest hypocrisy is her "pretense that she's a woman." Sorry, gals, Sarah Palin's most definitely a woman. I suppose some of the hate boils down to the fact that the governor is so easy on the eyes? Hmm? That's right. See, Palin is good-looking and that drives most of these feminists, who look a lot more like Ruth Bader Ginsburg than Palin, nuts.

Still, it was uber-femme Gloria Steinem who placed her finger directly on the liberal feminist true bone of contention with Palin, writing, quote, "She opposes just about every issue that women support. She opposes almost everything that most other women want and need." Of course, Madam Steinem's "everything most other women want and need" can be summed up in one word: abortion. Palin blew it, you see. She made an unforgivable choice. She publicly expressed through both word and selfless deed that she values all people during every stage of development from conception to natural death. Most egregiously, she refused the sacrificial right of passage, better known as the Eucharist of the feminist church: abortion. That's right. She declined to slaughter her own unborn child, Trig, to the goddess of feminism, even after doctors told her that he was one of those Down syndrome "throw-aways." Steinem called her own abortion a "pivotal and constructive experience." That's right. Her abortion was a "pivotal" and "constructive" experience. I guess, according to these nasty ninnies, we simply can't have a vice president who lacks experience in "pivoting" and "constructing."

Now think about it: Sarah Palin is poised to undo much of what the left has accomplished. Imagine her as a role model for millions upon millions of young girls around the world. Imagine those young girls embracing life over death on the abortion issue, embracing true feminism over angry abortion-centric feminism. They absolutely cannot have that, and they will stop at nothing to destroy her. We expect liberal bias from the media and other leftist elites, but this time around, the bias is off the charts. It's finally exposed the liberals who -- for who they truly are -- who I've been telling you they are for lo unto 15 years now -- and we have Sarah Palin to thank for it. The reality is, except for those who, like Gloria Steinem, think the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence should've read, "All women are endowed by Mother Earth with an inalienable right to eat their own young," Sarah Palin has connected with the average American, especially with women, most notably -- oh glory day -- with Hillary Clinton supporters.
