The Demise Of The Women’s March

The Demise Of The Women’s March

A Woman’s March, something to draw attention to the plight of women, the claim that they make less than what men do, and to stand up for empowerment and equality, sure sounds noble, but was it really this way?

While many were behind this march, it started off with great power, what followed when it took place soon shook many people’s faith in it, slowly saw it slip into claims of anti-Semitism, lack of inclusivity, a march for only liberal women soon followed, much of the faith in it was lost.

Today we see the leadership in chaos, sides being chosen, people fighting people, while others are calling for some to be excluded.

The reason for this is rather simple, the women’s march had nothing to do with empowering women, rather it was a liberal push against Trump, one that used the title to further its agenda, but in the end, had nothing but people marching around with vagina hats.

At the center of the controversy are leaders’ ties to and statements about radical Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. Both Linda Sarsour, a Palestinian activist who has embraced the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and co-President Tamika Mallory have ties to Farrakhan. The controversy picked up after Mallory attended a Farrakhan speech last February.

“White folks are going down. And Satan is going down. And Farrakhan, by God’s grace, has pulled the cover off of that Satanic Jew and I’m here to say your time is up, your world is through,” Farrakhan said in that sermon.

Sarsour, in particular, has made a number of controversial statements related to Israel. She defended Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., when she was attacked for her support of BDS and said that the criticism was coming from the right-wing as well as “folks who masquerade as progressives but always choose their allegiance to Israel over their commitment to democracy and free speech.”

But the march slipped into chaos before this, it turned into more a hate speech event with horrible rants coming from the likes of Madonna, Ashley Judd spewing venom from their mouths, in the end this was more against Trump then it was anything else, thus was doomed to fail in the long run.

As the split has continued we now see Jewish women correctly telling their fellow Jews to boycott this event, conservative and pro-life women, like the first march, are still not welcome, it was like all the other ones became an anti-Trump platform and little more other than a place to spew racist anti-semitic attacks.

I do support the right to protest, but will never support a march set up with false premise that had nothing to do with what the march was claimed to be about, I for one am glad this is starting to unravel, maybe next time they can organize one that is not racist and only for the liberals, rather is inclusive of all.

We saw the same thing with the #MeToo, it started with noble intent, ended up being more about power, revenge, and accusations without a shred of evidence being used to destroy lives. Both are doomed to fail due to the foundation they were built upon.
