National Organization for Whores (National Organization for Women nickname)

The National Organization for Women (NOW) was founded in 1966 to protect and advocate for women’s rights. Some NOW critics have claimed that the organization is anti-conservative and shills for liberals—and has little to do with defending women.
U.S. President Bill Clinton had a sex scandal in 1998, and many NOW critics noted that the organization didn’t defend the women in Clinton’s several sex scandals. NOW was nicknamed the “National Organization for Whores” by at least May 1998 and the “National Organization of Whores” by October 1998. In October 2010, when Jerry Brown (Democrat) was running against Meg Whitman (Republican) for California governor, someone in Brown’s camp was recorded calling Whitman a whore; NOW still endorsed Brown. The nickname “National Organization for/of Whores” was re-popularized.
NOW has also been nicknamed the National Organization for Liberal Women (NOLW), the National Organization for Ugly Women (NOUW) and the National Association of Gals (NAG).
Wikipedia: National Organization for Women
The National Organization for Women (NOW) is the largest feminist organization in the United States. It was founded in 1966 and has a membership of 500,000 contributing members and 5,987 chapters in 47 U.S. states (exceptions are Hawaii, North Dakota, and Maine) and the District of Columbia.

We know that the National Organization for Whores…oops..Women won’t go for it.  And as long as they support the current system, it will be hard to change things.

Patricia Ireland supports Bill Clinton.
Let’s take some guesses at what she might say to defend him:
“Let’s TRUST Bill Clinton for the next 28 months because I believe he told the truth under oath. Besides, ‘oral sex’ is just a discussion about sex.”
“The National Organization of Whores supported Bill’s re-erection to the Oral Orifice.”

N.O.W., the fringe but media-connected National Organization of Whores, has again come out in defense of Clinton.

Now we know what N.O.W. really stands for, having supported Clinton’s adultery and lawbreaking. It stands for
National Organization of Whores.

NOW, NOW, JIM ... . The reference wasn’t the most flattering.

But WPGB-FM talk-show host Jim Quinn has never been shy about voicing his opinion. That’s why he’s taking heat for recently referring to the National Organization for Women as the “National Organization for Whores.”
“The reason is that’s just what they are,” he said on his morning “War Room” show with Rose Tennent. “They’re political whores ... they’re whores for liberal politics in general, and they were whores for Bill Clinton in particular, which is where that phrase originated.”
The liberal Media Matters watchdog group, which obviously monitors Quinn’s show, immediately sent a mass e-mail with those and other quotes from Quinn regarding the organization.

Jerry Brown’s campaign conspired to commit political rape, calling Meg Whitman, his female political opponent, a “whore.” And he got N.O.W.’s political endorsement for doing so. The liberal beauty mask is so off the wrinkled, geriatric, age-spotted National Organization of Whores (yes, only a woman could write that so I just did).
Yet for all the mild hand-wringing over whether the “w-word” should have been used, no one in the Make-Believe Media is even questioning N.O.W.’s endorsement much less mocking the utter hypocrisy of it all. A women’s organization rewarding a politician for calling a woman a whore and no one notices. They’re all too busy with damage control for Brown’s campaign.
