An Open Letter on Behalf of Amy Goodman

Katrina vanden Heuvel blogs:

We join with you in condemning the arrest and harassment of Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman and members of her crew on the first day of the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota. These arrests were a transparent attempt to intimidate journalists and an assault on our constitution.

Goodman was arrested for simply questioning police about the unlawful detention of producers Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar who were covering street demonstrations in St. Paul. All three were roughly handled.

    I was just wondering, since this is a site that is dedicated to combating sexism, where is the spirited defense of Sarah Palin against the sexist abuse being heaped on her? Or is sexism okay if it is targeted at your political opponents? Please clarify.

    It is kind of humorous that many on the left have turned to sexism as a tool to attack a female opponent. Hmm, some hypocrisy maybe?

    For help tracking sexism, if anyone at this site is interested, links can be found here:

    Really, how about just one post saying that sexism used against Palin is wrong?
