When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS,CNN and Andy Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

"FEMINAZIS"

THIRTY TWO sponsors have now bailed on the Drugster. 


The Misogynist Limbaugh:
Rush Limbaugh earned the eternal enmity of feminists when, years ago, he coined the phrase 'Feminazis' to describe today's' liberated feminists. Rush has been proven, once again, to be ahead of his time. When reviewing the state of feminism today, one can only marvel at his prescience.

Why do Christian conservatives refer to feminists as "Feminazis? Because they are afraid of anything that threatens the status quo. They think things should stay the way they have "always" been, forever and ever amen.

One problem with that kind of thinking is that change is inevitable and you had better adapt than try to resist it.

If there is one thing that Rush Limbaugh knows how to do well, it’s get attention. And he’s at his best at doing that when he’s making crude remarks about women, blacks - well just about everything non-tea bagger.

Limbaugh once refused to take calls from females unless they submitted their photos to him first, so he could determine they weren’t ugly “feminazis.”




As the saying goes, “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.”

Feminazi is a term popularized by Limbaugh. Feminazi is a portmanteau of the nouns feminist and Nazi. The term is used pejoratively by some U.S. conservatives to criticize feminists that they perceive as extreme. According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the term describes "an extreme or militant feminist".

In a 1996 interview, Gloria Steinem characterized Limbaugh's use of the term “feminazi” as ironic since feminists and other political dissenters were among the victims of Nazi concentration camps and Nazi work camps:
Limbaugh often defends his use of the term: "I haven't used that term on this program in awhile. But it still gets to 'em, doesn't it? And you know why? Because it's right. Because it's accurate."

Limbaugh's offensive jargon has always been a major problem, and it has huge implications for the state of  women’s rights. In a society where the term “feminazi” is used refer to women fighting for the rights to their body, no wonder a country that advocates freedom and equality is having challenges in moving past the 1800's.

Help kick Rush's off the airwaves.
